Patriots: Another shot at fantasy perfection
July 7, 2008
If you thought Bill Belichick was pissed last season -- the guy never had a 50-point lead he felt "comfortable" with -- how do you think he'll feel after losing the Super Bowl in what nearly was an unbeaten season? At least Spygate is over.
The only key cog from the Patriots' record-breaking offense that won't return is Donte' Stallworth, and he was seen more often on the side of a milk carton than on the field toward the end of last season. In other words, Tom Brady and Co. should continue their assault on whichever opponent the schedule offers each week.
On the other side of the ball, there isn't a standout IDP stud, but the unit as a whole should be among the first defenses drafted. There's a nice mix of battle-tested veterans and some new blood, so there's plenty of upside.
