This has by far been the most challenging season for the Patriots. They had to revamp the secondary as a way to improve a d create salary cap space. Overall, the office has been middle of the road all season. Both have bent but they didn't break. Tom Terrific has been his normally spectacular self and the run game has improved with the addition of rb Ben Tate. The team managed to win their last 6 in a row and 7 of the last 8. Coming from 3rd place in the division to wind up division champs and securing a first round bye. Now the team hopes to avoid their same fate as last season when they lost to the Jets in the playoffs.The offense sputtered at the start of the season while sampling new playbooks. But Coach Pope got back to his roots. The defense has been stellar at times and then at timeslookedlike the Bad News Bears of football. Which will show up during the playoffs. Only time will tell! Happy Easter Everyone!
