Final 2013 New England Patriots thoughts

There are ten days to go before the world tunes in to watch Super Bowl XLV111 which will be played for the first time in a cold weather venue open to the elements.

That being said here are my thoughts on the Patriots as they watch with the rest of us.

  • Has Julian Edelman worn the flying Elvis for a final time?
  • New England Patriot coaches are bolting for other opportunities left and right, have they seen the handwriting on the wall that the Patriots are about to enter a period of mediocre seasons?
  • Bill Belichick came off as a crybaby during his press conference re the Welker hit. How about taking responsibility for the loss by explaining your failed game plan to go deep and abandon the running game?
  • Was 2013 Brady’s finest season as a New England Patriot quarterback? The talent that he had to work with was certainly substandard at best, yet he guided the team to one win away from a Super Bowl appearance.
  • The Patriots have seven draft picks in 2014. Will they pick up a stud receiver or go after a DT that can help Vince Wilfork who is coming off a devastating achilles injury, tough to come back at his weight and age.
  • Will Mallett be traded for another draft pick, or will he again be relegated to the bench and watch Brady?
  • When will Gronkowski return to the field, and more importantly can he stay healthy in 2014?
  • Can Josh McDaniel resist the temptation to bolt to Cleveland?
  • Has the point after gone the way of the drop kick? Why not use the Drop Kick as your point after?
  • The Patriots opponents in 2014 had a .515 winning percentage in 2013 so be prepared for another division championship, only to be disapointed in the playoffs.
