Waaaay too early for this.

So much can and does happen through the pre-season with injuries, suspensions, cap & surprise cuts -even trades.

If this thread were posted after the last pre-season game, the answers would look decidedly different and certainly more informed, while still being  just guesses..

Why would NE regress like that?  Their passing game is only going to improve and that's what carries them.  Unless Brady gets injured, which has only happened once since 2001, I see them finishing at least at the same 12-4 that they were last year.  Once again the NFL has seen fit to ensure that NE's two toughest games against Denver and Cincy are at home.

Because of Brandon LaFell?

At first glance this seems like a pretty cool topic and exercise - until you start reading everyone's predictions and realize you can't care about / comment on agreeing or disagreeing on that amount of proposals.

Cinderella Tom Brady will fall and when he does it will be hard.   The dude is getting old, just like P Manning.   It's the reason I won't out right pick the Bronco's to go to the SB any more that I would the Cheatriots.

Reevis Island is also getting old.  If hes that good do you think he would have only stayed with the Buc's for 1 season and only with the Putrids for 1 season?   (its a 2 yr contact but ONLY to protect the Pats salary cap)
