    thats not true RAVENS will do good ever since we had ray rice and joe flacco we went to the playoffs pats didnt go always with tom brady and ravens will make it far pats will go no where this season thats the truth also an NFL analyst said lee evanscought the pass and made the TD then the pats guy stripped the ball so we should went to playoffs

    @Walldrop7 One guy isn't gonna fix a defense with a lot of problems, espicially a rookie. That defense needs pass-rushers, run stoppers, everything.

  • Seattle Seahawks

    Brandon Lloyd's arrival plus Brady and the Gronker should power them to 11 wins and the playoffs.

    Yes the Pats are still elite. As long as they have Tom Brady they always will be. They just need to improve their defense really badly.

    Ohcocinco isn't a loss, but the only names I know on the Patroits now are Gronk and Brady. Their defense isn't that good, and their offense I believe will start to slow down. No Super Bowl this year.
