With training camp underway and the first NFL preseason game just a few days away, the New England Patriots are once again looking like the team to beat in the NFL. With the additions of Joey Galloway, Fred Taylor, Shawn Springs, and two-time pro bowler Derrick Burgess, the Patriots appear to have one heck of a team ready for the 2009 season.
The Patriots have been making enough noise with the talk of Tom Brady wanting to play this upcoming preseason. And now with the acquisition of a pro bowl defensive end to add to their already impressive defense, the Patriots seem to be spreading fear across the NFL. Just take a look at this list... Tom Brady, Fred Taylor, Wes Welker, Randy Moss, Joey Galloway, Richard Seymour, Vince Wilfork, Derrick Burgess, Jerod Mayo, Adalius Thomas, Shawn Springs, Leigh Bodden, and don't forget about their pro-bowl veteran offensive line.
Not only do the Patriots appear to have the best offense, but they're now starting to look like they're going to have an NFL top ten defense. But what does this mean for the New England Patriots? Does it mean undefeated and winning it all? Believe it or not... it might very well be possible. Expect Tom Brady to throw over 4,000 yards and 30+ TD passes. Expect Randy Moss to catch 10 of those TD passes and gain over 1,000+ yards. Expect Wes Welker to keep amazing people and making the Dolphins kick themselves for giving him up to their rivals.
Hate them or love them, the New England Patriots are turning out to be the greatest team in the NFL, again. But it's not because of one player or one coach, it's because of a collective effort from everyone. Everyone includes every player, every coach, and everyone in the front office. Sure Kraft foods are pretty delicious, but Patriot's fans seem to love Robert a little more.
