    Jerrod Mayo was lost for the season. This in my opinion is a huge loss for this Pats team. He was the leader of that defense especially now with Wilfork gone.this injury will be a devastating loss for this defense. I think us having this bye week and being pretty much entirely healthy is looking great for our chances. Hopefully the injury bug does not catch up with us.

    Hey, they might be a team the Dolphins can run on...:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: The pats have shown time and again why they are kings of our division. Until we:
    1.Create a solid system
    2. Bring in guys that fit the system
    We will always be on the outside looking in. Good teams identify and get a QB capable of running a system. We did that. Then they build offensive players around him that can grasp the system we did that BUT you build from the inside out.....we have not done that...It all starts in the trenches whether you are building an offense or defense...with all the talent we have had in the coaches ranks that have offensive line experience it is so frustrating they have not been capable of more toward building our team in the trenches.

    Yes it is a huge loss but we are not pretty much entirely healthy. Actually the guys who were injured are still injured. PAtterson may not play this week, Soliai, Ellerbe and Clemmons are all still injured and there has been no mention of Wake which tells me he is still injured. One would think that after a bye week, we would be fully healthy but we always get the short end of the stick from the football gods so...

    No, until they lose Brady, they will run the division. When they do, are they going to be lucky like Indy or have to suffer years of mediocrity? Will Belichek finally look human? Will we find another Brady/Marino/Griese? That's when the change comes.

    Too bad Brady can't catch his own passes, or stop defenses from moving the ball on the defense.

    We play the Pats in 2 weeks, so if Patterson is not ready yet, keep him out of this game, Soliai, Elerbe, and Clemmon should play very limited snaps, (depending how healthy each actually is). We will need these guys way more in 2 weeks, so be smart about it, even if they are not perfectly healthy yet, they are close to being at playing health.

    Hell they could put in a beer delivery guy from Publix to play LB for them and he'd accrue 110 tackles.

    As long as they have Brady they will rule this division. They also have an incredible amount of luck to counter the injuries and having the officials in your back pocket doesn't hurt either.

    They've won something like 12 straight division games. Probably going to smoke the Jets again this week.

    Bottom line, excuses are for chumps. It's pathetic that they are able to dominate the entire division the way that they do, and if Miami gets swept again this year Joe Philbin had better start touching up his resume earlier than he'd planned. I'm a fan of Philbin, I like what he's doing, I think he was a good hire. But their best players are dropping like flies. Getting swept is unacceptable.

    Anyone want to tally up the number of Head Coaches and starting QB's there have been in the AFC East since Brady became the starter in 2001?

    Beyond how good BB & Brady are, that has a lot to do with their success in the east.

    Guys, it's not going to stop when Brady is gone. Keep telling yourself that but the patriots winning has a lot more to do with rule-breaking (officials and commish included) than Brady.
    I guarantee that if BB stays after Tom retires, their next low round qb will also dominate.

    This is a league-approved fraud, folks

    So how come Belichick wasn't able to have the same success when Cassel when he stepped in for Brady? No. Once Brady is gone the Pats are done.

    They went 11-5 that year, I'd say that was pretty successful.

    Meh. I'm still convinced that when Brady retires that teams is done. I will give go as far to say if Belichick retires before Brady the Pats will be fine until Brady retires.

    I don't know about that, belichik is a historian and loves breaking records. I have a feeling he is going after shula.

    I can't believe I was pulling for the Jets in that game. Well, more like rooting for New England to lose, that sounds better.

    a year after going 16-0 and against a MUCH easier schedule. 2008 was a failure, he couldn't even get that team to the playoffs.

    Brady is the reason they have been great for so long.
