Sure am. They can't win every year. And with Bruschi out (easily the glue that held the D together), they might be vulnerable without the ball.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure their offense will still be powerful as hell, but as it's always said, "defense wins championships".

you're right, this year they add Chad Brown (to replace bruschi) as well as duane starks and have a nice healthy secondary for once, im sure they'll get a lot worse without troy brown playing cornerback this year.

Your records add up to 254-258.

I guess you must have picked the Lions to lose to the Frankfurt Galaxy, Memphis Maniax, the Mean Machine, and Orchard Lake Middle School.

True, Bruschi will be missed.

However, we won last year with that patchwork of a secondary, and that looks real strong this year.

And I have to say that I think the Patriots defensive line is one of the best in the entire league, and all of them are under 25.

As for the offense, I think it's going to be the most explosive that it ever has. The only reason I picked them to go 13-3 instead of, say, 15-1, is that the schedule is tough.
