improvement each week
posted at 10/25/2009 7:44 PM EDTEach week the PATS as a team are getting better and better, both offensively and defensively. And, certain players are surely showing individual improvement i.e. Brady, Merriweather, Vollmer, Guyton, McGowan, Banta-Cain, Aiken, Pryor, just to name those who have impressed me over the last few weeks.
However, that being said, can the PATS, now that they have feasted on a couple of 'JV' teams, continue their success against some varsity teams, namely the Dolphins and Colts?
And I would not be too quick to dismiss the Dolphins.
I do like what I've been seeing. Granted, there are some areas and/or weaknesses that must be addressed, but this group is really starting to take shape as their identity evolves.

Henne will have to beat us on his own, and I am beginning to like our secondary more. The Colts, well, thats a tougher one, but I dont see why not. At the current rate of improvement, we can do it. Jets for sure we can beat at home. Saints look tough again. After that we have a good run of "B" teams right up to the Texans. I'm calling it 12-4 for the season, #2 seed.
