Tom Brady told the fans to start drinking early on Sunday. The Patriots said he meant water. HA
Tom Brady can say whatever he wants to whoever he wants, whenever he wants, wherever he wants, however he wants. PERIOD. The words “I’m sorry” should never leave his mouth for any reason. Nobody “clarifies” what he says because whatever he says, is. If Tom Brady wants everyone in the fucking stadium drunk off their ass, you don’t try to make his comments “PC.” YOU HAND OUT FREE BEER.
Because the only things certain in this life are death, taxes, and Tom Brady being better than you.
OHHH BABY here we go, I know people will think ‘ohhhh he’s a Patriots fan there’s no way this will be a good representation of the team’ well, just read and hear me out first.Source:
Offense: Tom Brady is Tom Brady, I don’t think anyone will argue against that. Coming off possibly one of his best stat years (36 TD’s and 4 INT’s), and considering the nfl just came off a lockout don’t discredit a veteran leadership role Brady will play on the offense. His line in front of him has true leadership as well with guys like Neal Koppen and Mankins playing the blocking role on the inside, to help the outside tackles Solder and Vollmer. Solder is the first round pick taken by the Pats last draft and has proven to be a solid tackle. The only sack allowed on Brady against the Bucs in pre-season was by Solder but that’s okay for the rookie; he will learn and with LeVoir backing him up there’s always a strong switch if he has an off game. Now for the rest of the offense, let me state first I have a man crush on Branch, Edelman, and Woodhead. Now I know Welker Branch and Ocho haven exactly blown the league away in recent years with their stats, but boy oh boy do they bring SERIOUS threats on the field. Possibly one of the best possession WR in Welker, a still viable deep threat in both Branch and Ocho, and not to mention the depth with Edelman and Tate backing them up. Whenever you have Welker, Branch, and Ochocinco as your three WR’s on the field, I’ll step aside and give you a gold medal for your offense; BUT WAIT THERE’S STILL A RB MISSING! Woodhead has come along in my mind starting as a nobody cut by the Jets into one of the most integral parts of this offense. He ran for 500+, caught for 350+ yards, and set up blocks on the outside even with his supposed 5’8 stature. Benjarvis Green-Ellis is a serious threat, he took 229 looks last season for just over 1000 yards giving him avg 4.4 yards per touch; he is a very serious threat at RB that would be willing to switch in and out with Woody for touches near the goal line for a TD. QUICK SIDE NOTE Stevan Ridley has taken some of the eye of the coaches so he might be 3rd stringer this year!
Defense: How could you not like the defense? Just looking at a 3-4 defense, the Pats have a Haynesworth, Wilfork, Ellis D-line. Ellis had 4.5 sacks last season, Wilfork having 2 sacks, and Haynesworth having 2.5 sacks in 8 games. The line will have new addition Andrew Carter fighting for spots as an elite pass rusher as he showed his talents against the Bucs O-line last week forcing 2 sacks for Mayo. The LB core this year starts with Jerod Mayo, (upcoming star in my opinion) Jermaine Cunningham, Brandon Spikes and Rob Ninkiovich. Ninkovich came off a year with 4 sacks making teams lose 25 yards on just those 4 sacks alone, along with 61 tackles and 2 INTs. Then you have younger players looking for snaps near end of the season and Gary Guyton still fighting for a spot after a three sack season last year. For those who don’t know, Mayo lead the league last season with 175 combined tackles and is captaining this very young defense that gained a lot of experience last season so he will be one of the most solid MLB again this season. In the DB position, Devin McCourty and Leigh Bodden are a very serious 1-2 CB duo and will try to prove it this season again. McCourty is one of the fastest and best man-to-man CB’s in the league and proved it with his 7 INTs, 2 forced fumbles, 82 combined tackles, and 17 passes deflected last season. Not to mention two safties in Merriweather who is still only 27 years old and has been a solid player throughout the last 4 years; and Patty Chung who had a breakout season last year doing everything but catch a pass from Brady. This defense was the youngest defense in the league last season, and maybe they still are but they won’t seem young on the field after all the experience they gained from playoff game, and will have a thirst for shutting down serious offenses this season.
Special Teams: The special teams is good here because of Julian Edelman. While he does line up behind Welker on most depth charts, look out for Edelman on punts as well. He returned one against the Dolphins and don’t be shocked if he does so again!
My overall rating for this team 10/10. This one of the best teams I’ve ever been able to see on the field this coming season and I CAN’T WAIT to see them play. Offense is even more lethal than ever and the defense could become one of the toughest to play against if all goes well with the Haynesworth experiment, but even if it doesn’t go well Ellis Carter Wilfork will be a very tough triple threat on the line!
