But I digress. Point is, how bad is a team that you need to replace more than 1/2 the roster in two years and how does that happen in the first place?

Lets look at all the turn over with the starters of the PatsQB
- Brady 10 years, Lots of back up turnoverWR
- Moss, Welker vets - Edelman, Slater, Tate and Rookie Price new bloodO Line
- Starters Light 01, Mankins 05, Koppen 03, Neal 01, Kaczur 05 - new blood with Vollmer, Bussey, Ohrnberger and new draft picks today.TE
- All new bloodRB
- Maroney 06, Faulk 99, with vets Morris and TaylorD line
- Warren 03, Wilfork 04, Wright 05 - new blood Pryor, Brace, vet Lewis and new draft picksLB
- This is one area where most guys are new over the past 3 yearsCB
- Another area where everyone is new over the past 3 years except Sanders 05.
So, you point was? Looks to me like the majority of the starters did not see a 50% turnover. Three positions have seen heavy turnover, TE (hopefully address in draft).
LB - Mayo (Stud), Thomas (not lived up to contract), and with two new draft picks to compete with Guyton, Banta-Cain, Woods, McKenzie and Crable this unit appears to be on it's way up.
CB - Another unit that has seen almost everyone new but with Bodden on one side and McCourty, Butler, Wilhite, Wheatley battling for the other side we only need one of the 4 to become a quality starter and this will be a good unit.
Safety - Heavy turnover but Meriweather is a player and with Chung in his second year and Sanders playing free safety this position seems set.
So my point is? YOU KNOW NOTHING! There are 22 starters so if the Pats add added say 25 new guys over the past two years these guys are backups with many being groomed to become starters. Sounds like a great plan to me! Oh, with all these rookies/draft picks on the roster we have enough money to resign Brady, Bodden and Wilfork. Good way to keep the key guys.
