    MY New England Patriots Preview

    We've talked about it on the show already and Timmy and Rubba Shoes will discuss it further tonight on the show, but I am leaving for St. Lucia tomorrow and won't be able to weigh in again until after game 1 of the 2009-2010 New England Patriots campaign. So, I wanted to take a minute and share my thoughts about what this season will hold for the Pats.

    As Scotty Dukes so kindly pointed out after the show on Monday, the Patriots do not play the Chargers at all this season, so my prediction was a bit off, but I am sticking to the record. I think the Pats will go 13-3 this season and will cruise into the playoffs looking to make history again.

    Then the question becomes, will they make the Super Bowl and win their fourth ring in this decade? To me, the answer is simple, YES. Sure, there are some questions about this team. The now, young defense, is untested, aside from Vince Wilfork, Adalius Thomas and a handful of others. The secondary is new and as yet unestablished. So, on the defensive side of the ball the Patriots aren't the powerhouse that they once were. However, they do still have one of the greatest defensive minds in the history of the game on the sidelines coaching them, so provided Coach Belichick made the right moves with players, this could be a very good defensive squad.

    On the offensive side of the ball there are very few questions. A lot of people are saying it will be running back by committee, which it likely will be, but if your committee includes players like Fred Taylor and Sammy Morris, you're looking good, as long as they stay healthy. As for LoMo, this will be his final season to make an impact and if he doesn't I don't think anyone will be surprised if he is bounced.

    Then finally there is the return of the MVP. Tom Brady is back and ready to make mush of the rest of the league. Imagine this, he hasn't completed a full game of football since the devastating loss to the NY Giants in the Super Bowl. You think a competitor like Tom Brady is going to forget that? I don't think so. The man is on a mission. He wants to make certain that his legacy is among the greatest, if not THE greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game and this year will let him prove it.

    I stand by my prediction of 13-3 for the Pats and then a bumpy ride to the Super Bowl where they will win their fourth ring in this decade.

    Now I am off to St. Lucia to swim with dolphins and sip rum drinks by the Caribbean ocean water. I will be updating with pictures of my trip on my page here so stop by and check them out from time to time.

    GO PATS!!

    I agree with the 13-3 call. I agree more with the fact that Maroney needs to go if he doesn't hit the hole with authority this season. He needs to stop playing scared and start being a first round draft pick.
