Brady restructures to get the team 25 mil in cap space and this is what the Pats have to show for it so far meanwhile,
And all we can do is shake our heads. When's the last time a team whose only playmakers were tight ends won the SB?
I think Brady's great but all he does is throw, someone has to catch, someone has to run. Randy Moss is the last great player the Pats brought in. Pats FO knows Brady and Belichick can always win the AFC East because no one else is ever any good. Miami is the only team that looks like they're trying to compete this year. But winning the Superbowl? Not happening. Not even close. They're going to go to Denver where Brady will lose to his greatest rival and Welker gets his revenge...if they're lucky.
You need to chill.
Give Brady a defense who can stop other teams and you're set with the most dynamic tight end duo in league history. Got capable running backs. Good replacement for Welker. One of the best OLines in the league annually.
Don't need an abundance of weapons to win a title. You should know better than anyone, you won three without any elite weapon.
I personally don't like the Welker thing either for the Pats but they're still legit superbowl contenders. They just need to add talent to the secondary and they have the makings of the defense that can replicate the early 2000's.
