I know their offense puts up good numbers, but do you think that could be deceiving in part because of the schedule they play? It seems to me that their offense has looked lackluster in all of their disappointing playoff losses. Throw in the contract disputes/suspension of VJ and the departure of your franchise face of the last decade, and one has to wonder how they can make a leap forward while taking so many steps back on paper [throw in the loss of NT Jamal Williams and CB Antonio Cromartie]. They haven't had the team to get the job done yet--why would this year be any different?
“There is an old saying about the strength of the wolf is the pack, and I think there is a lot of truth to that. On a football team, it's not the strength of the individual players, but it is the strength of the unit and how they all function together.”--Bill Belichick
