In Response to Re: just imagine
Personally - I feel the Ravens, Jets, Dolphins, Broncos and Colts are the Pats main obstacles to an AFC championship in the upcoming season. However - there is no real reason to think that the Pats will not contend for the SB - anything can happen, right?! They have an interesting team this year. If rookies overachieve, look out! Brady has more weapons at his disposal and other teams' secondaries better be on their toes. Definitely with all the draft picks garnered over this year and next - surely TB will have more rings to flash....Go Pats go! (Canada loves the Pats - not the Gills)!! In Response to just imagine :

Really? Did you just copy the teams the Pats lost to last year and decide that they stand a chance against us next year? The Colts, as always, will be there to stand in the way of the Patriots, the Ravens, Jets, and Phins will not be.
Sorry, but Baltimore only beat the Pats because they played inspired Football. They felt as if they had an axe to grind. The Phins on the other hand, they barely beat us when they beat us. They only won that match because of the lack of pass-rush from the Patriots. This defense may not have added a big name Free Agent, but they got better by subtraction. Adalius didn't bring any effort to the table last year. The Pats played, essentially, with 10 men on defense. And when you factor in Wilhite, OMG! The Pats played with nine.
The Jets beat the Pats last year with Blitzing and running the ball. Their OL is weaker than it was last year. Their defense got better, way better, but I can't see them actually taking the Patriots down. We still have Brady and Belichick. Those two still have rings to win.
Now, The team that makes me question your judgement is the Broncos. Seriously? An 8-8 team that barely beat the Patriots when they had one of the best WRs in Football is going to beat the Pats now that they traded everyone valuable away? Is this because of Tebow? If it is, Kyle Orton is the starting QB for the Broncos and he will be until they draft a real QB. Tebow won't ever see the field as a QB. That was McDaniel's nail in the coffin. He'll be fired soon.
