The 2007 Patriots offense appeared to be a dream team.
It is hard to imagine that New England could possibly have a better set of weapons this year than they did in 2007, but I believe that is the case.
The biggest piece missing is obviously Randy Moss and his threat of the deep ball. In his place, you have have two monsters at tight end as well as new threats out of the backfield.
Rob Gronkowski has the size of an offensive linemen with the skill set of a tight end. Watching him catch a pass 20 yards down field and seeing how the smaller corner backs bounce off of him is almost comical.
Aaron Hernandez brings a wide receiver skill set with the size of a normal tight end. Based on the first two weeks of the season, Hernandez's role is going to be as a slot receiver of sorts which only makes him a scarier match up for defenses.
Brady has a running back to go to in almost any situation or place on the field. The options are limitless.
All of this and we are still leaving out Wes Welker and Deion Branch. As well as Chad Ochocinco if he can ever get on track with the rest of the offense.
Brady has proven that he isn't afraid to throw any of his weapons. So how do you game plan him? Who do you shut down?
This will be the question that opposing coaches will be losing sleep over for the rest of the season.
