Brady is a year older. 2. Losing Welker 3. Gronk can't stay healthy 4. Tebow distractions 5. and now Hernandez and what effect the homicide will have. If Pats play with one or none of the TE's, the entire complexity of that team changes offensively, and exponentially w/o Welker.



    Phins rise while Pats fall.

    Was announce yesterday Gronk will be on the unable to perform list all of preseason.

    "dream team" offseason? that is a stretch and I hate seeing fans(it's happening on our board too) being so excited that hernandez may have been involved in a murder. At some point real life has to be more important than a football game.

    The Hernandez situationS (as there are now two), are scary stuff. Could be nothing, but it doesn't really look like that.

    How that contributes to the football side of things, who knows. I firmly believe that the Patriots are starting a steady and inevitable decline, which will take a few years to correct. Does that mean they won't be at the sharp end of the season? Not to me. Belichick is - like him or hate him - the best gameday tactician in the business. But the roster is looking wobbly, Brady is definitely getting happy feet more and more at this career stage, the drafts are curious at best. It's not enough to push them tumbling into the abyss, but as the OP said, it does open a chink in the armour. You can't underestimate them, but the air of impregnability is gone, if you ask me.

    I agree. Not often I agree with a Jets fan, but in this case, I definitely do.

    If Amendola stays healthy, they may no miss Welker that much. Welker is absolutely devastating in the slot, but he's strictly a slot receiver. Amendola offers a lot more versatility at the receiver position.

    But he is nowhere the safety blanket Welker was, Welker had a great knack of being open when you needed him (there was a reason Brady was upset when Welker left), and then there is the dependability issue....will Amendola last a whole year with any major injury issue. Going from Welker to Amendola may not be as easy as some may think, then again the QB is Brady, so the growing pains may not be as painful as they could be.
    My Draft:

    Round 1: DeVante Parker (WR):
    Speed, size/height, and efficient WR.

    Round 2: Denzel Perryman (I-LB):
    Behind Suh, quality I-LB.

    Round 4: Jalen Collins (CB)
    Possible quality CB w/ work.

    Round 5: Jamil Douglas (Guard/Center/Tackle)
    Guard, can also play center and tackle.

    Round 6: Malcolm Brown (RB)
    Consistent short yardage powerback.

    How many SBs did Brady win pre Welker? how many w/ Welker? Welker is a GOOD player but vastly overrated, he drops too many passes(including probably costing them the SB 2 years ago) and he catches a million dumpoffs. He'll find another security blanket, he could win w/ anyone at WR/TE. He nearly made a SB w/ jabar Gaffney and reche Caldwell as his main weapons.
