The Patriots have the two best tight ends in the NFL. They have a receiver with over 100 receptions and over 1,100 yards in four of his last five seasons. They have another receiver who led the league in receiving yards in 2010. They have a three-time world champion at quarterback who just threw over 5,000 yards.
Now, all they have to do is win the Super Bowl.
It's a tall order for most teams, but it really isn't too much to ask from the Patriots.
This is a rare offensive unit, layered with diverse talent and exceptional athleticism, glued together by a disciplined work ethic which keeps these men in harmony, both on and off the field.
This is it. This is the team.
It would be a shame to waste this opportunity. We can't wait until 2013 or 2014. The time is now.
Here's a look at New England's 2012 offense with predicted leaders in every receiving category.
