The Pats had a ridiculously easy schedule this past year thanks to teams not living up to preseason expectations.
I can't believe some of you are doubting our ability to make it back to the playoffs.
Great point about predicting strengths of schedules. You never know how good a team will be. Just look at our own Niners. Who thought we would make it the NFC championship? Not me.
YES. The Niners will be back in the playoffs. The defense is phenomenal. The offensive line is good and getting better with experience. We have a good group of running backs. Those are the building blocks for a winning football team.
The team needs depth at WR. To heck with depth. They need a WR. Morgan, Ginn, and Crabtree ain't a bad bunch, but they are a mediocre bunch. Someone needs to step up.
Alex Smith needs to improve his deep ball.
