They were a scary offense until they rolled over and died two years ago in the Super Bowl against the Giants.
Now, Tom Brady is coming back and looking for redemption.
Randy Moss and Wes Welker have two more years in an offensive system that they set records during their first season.
The addition of Joey Galloway and Greg Lewis at wide receiver just made our receiving core a lot deeper, too.
Brady and his receivers are hungry and our back field is better than it has been in a long time.
Picking up Fred Taylor is a big help. Laurence Maroney and Sammy Morris are healthy now and you still have Kevin Faulk and BenJarvus Green-Ellis to account for.
The offensive line is intact but with better back ups, the Patriots are primed to break more records this year.
Then take a look at the not so old defense and revamped secondary, and all I have to say is this: Beware of the Patriots this year because they will settle for nothing less than total decimation of all opponents.
