The NY media will always try to stir up controversy, it happened when we were good and it happened when w were bad. If either isn't mentally tough enough to handle it we are in trouble.
Everyone around the team.
Lazor's use of varied formations and motion will make us far harder to gameplan against and even against Belichik & co. we should get a few busted coverages each game.
Versatile TE's like Lynch and RB's like Moreno set up hurry up possibilities to lock in favorable personnel groupings. Scheme additions like more screens and pick plays will make things easier for Tannehill.
I don't think we are going to run on New England or win a lot outside, but I like how Lazor's offense matches up against them.
Defensively, We did about as well as we could last year given the bias of the refs in New England. I don't expect our defense to do as well against them this year. But, their receiving corps is still weak and either brittle or young, so Brady will not be clockwork, IMHO.

- Defending the Read Option - What do you think?
Until proven otherwise, nope. BUF is a matchup nitemare. NYJ with half way decent qb play, will be a fight.
New England is sliding, the fall from dominance will be gradual. But this won't be the season of change in the East.
You act like it's just Brady you have to beat, sure QB's are important but Brady isn't going to be carrying this years team the way he had to last year. In fact it's going to be really difficult for anyone to move the ball through the air on the Patriots secondary this year.
The Pats have had the benefit of playing in a mediocre division for a while now. They've had next to no competition for years. Put them in the NFCW and at best they're second fiddle and that's only cause Kaepernick is glorified RG3. I believe that we have a decent shot at the division with some luck that the bug dont hurt us too badly and our question marks get answered positively.
