Edelman 


Is it almost a certainty that he will be back now that we have some issues at TE?  Since he is the only WR on the roster who has caught a pass from Brady, I see no reason he doesn't stick around

 He re-signed with New England on a one-year deal on April 10, 2013. The pressure will be on Ballard, Edleman and either Sudfeld, Hoomanawanui or Fells if Gronk and Hernandez are both out.
The time has come..... Here's to the 2014 Season.

Hoomanawanui and Fells are not pass catchers. They cannot be counted on to be productive in the passing offense. Ballard will need to step up, but he again is more of a blocker and not going to be a "go-to type TE. Sudfeld is the real wild card. He is the guy that I can see making the most impact from the TE spot.

Like it or not this team will need to be running team. Defense's will be able to shut down the outside pretty easy and clog the middle. The Pats will need to run the ball to set up the pass. Brady's top 5 receivers from last season are gone( Gronk and AH up in the air) and the replacements stink.

Oh-oh is supposed to be pretty decent catching the ball - scouts liked his strong hands and ability to catch the ball away from his body. He's only a tick slower than Gronk in the 40. He also did a great job as a FB for Ridley. But with Gronk and AH active, he didn't get many looks. So he may get more of a chance.

Ballard is good enough that Coughlin blew a gasket when BB snagged him off IR.

Fells I'm not thrilled with - most of the times Brady did try throwing to him seemed to be drops, and he caused a bunch of penalties too if I recall.

I don't expect Gronk to be anywhere close to his old self til mid-season. Back problems are slow to recover from for the level of athleticism he needs.

More on Sudfeld here ... lots of upside to this kid. Another under-the-radar kind of find.

From an article I saw today, BB may have found another gem in George Winn. They're saying he “might be the most explosive and underrated running back in the 2013 NFL Draft”. I have no problem with a more balanced offense. I liked the old boring, methodical, steam-roller offense they used to win SB's with. If they can get 4 y/c on the ground reliably that completely changes the way teams play the Pats, and the way they tee-off on Brady.
