Based on everything that has came out, Brady’s suspension will be overturned in federal court, which means the Pats will have 12 back for the season opener, and not only that, but they will be getting a Tom Brady that is pissed off at the world. He will be wanting to annihilate the rest of the league for this past offseason, and with a loaded offensive group, it will be easy to put up points for New England.
The defense won’t be as good as last year, but it won’t be as bad as a lot of people are making it out to be. The front seven is deep, talented, and young, and the secondary has the best coverage safety in the game in Devin McCourty, and a budding star in Malcolm Butler. They won’t be top 5, but they will get the job done.
As stacked as Buffalo/Miami/Jets may be on defense, they all are extremely limited on offense, and if you want to overtake the Patriots in the AFC East, you need a quarterback that can outduel Tom Brady on a consistent basis. And Matt Cassell, Ryan Tannehill, and Geno Smith cannot do that right now.
Brady is coming for you, NFL. Be prepared.
