    largest weakness left

    Now with burgess addressing the huge hole vrabel left, where is the biggest hole left.  I think the jelling of the LB's is still the biggest, followed by the jelling of the CB's to the system and Brady getting the rust out.  Given the experience of all three of the personnel just listed I am extremely optomistic for a season better than 2007....

    Lets wait till they play before we can say Burgess is the answer at pass rush specialist.  Going into the season I see 3,4,5 WR as a question mark, the secondary as a question mark, the pass rush questionable still and Tom's health and how the OL is gonna step up and keep Brady standing.  Waiting for the games to begin, all they have right now is a team on paper  can't wait for preseason game and REGULAR SEASON TO BEGIN!!!!!!!

    Re: largest weakness left

    I say we still need another pass rusher/LB type player to truly solidify the line backing corp. I don’t think we are done adding pieces to the defense but we'll see where the players are at by the end of training camp. Maybe we may have to give Junior Seau a call this summer.

    We need depth at back up QB as well.

    Re: largest weakness left

    The "jelling" will be an issue until probably Week 4 or so, but I wouldn't call that the biggest weakness.

    Backing up Brady is an issue.  Either we have an unproven second year player, or a proven question mark - neither makes anyone comfortable.  Having said that, many of us (myself definitely included) thought that Matt Cassel should've been cut during preseason, and that turned out okay - though he did have years more in the system.

    Honestly, beyond that, I can't see much.  If pressed, I'd have to say that the ILB spot beside Mayo is the greatest question.  Tedy Bruschi is my son's favorite player, and I love the guy, but the truth must be accepted that he's not the player he once was.  He is now a situational player, who has a cerebral edge but whose physical ability is fading fast.  Is Guyton up to taking that spot?  I don't know.  Will Paris Lenon step up?  I haven't heard much from him either.

    We'll just have to see ...

    Depth at WR and ILB is our biggest concern.

    with gallowway,and lewis looking good in camp.cant say its a concern.plus with a healthy brady,if he can make reche caldwell look like a stud.he wont have a problem with these guys.depending on how andrews pans out it remains to be seen on the back-up QB spot.and the rest of the team is a wait and see process.

    I guess we're in pretty good shape when the long snapper is our biggest concern. We are set, but a bigger problem could be unusually cold Sunday afternoons, forcing our cheerleaders to put on too many clothes....

    Our biggest weakness is us Pats fans thinking Brady will pick off where he left off pre mangled knee, i am not saying he will sukk but i am saying get the 50 td passes and 4500 yards passing out of your heads.

    Strong D and running game will be the keys to easing Brady back in, don't expect miracles, look at Carson Palmer.

    Sorry, I just don't see much in the way of problems at all.  3 & 4
    Wr are certainly in great hands...with galloway and lewis and maybe some help from Edelman.  The OL is back intact with strong subs ie Hochstein, Vollmer and co.  And some have got to be kidding, we are worried about our back up QB situation...get out of town.  When you have the best QB in the NFL, you protect him and thank your lucky stars...not worry over who are back up QB is.  Maybe we should try and trade for Peyton Manning, just in case Tom goes down.  C'mon back to reality.

         If the Pats' defense can generate a pass rush, the secondary will be fine...and the Pats will win the SB. If not, the Pats will be nothing more than playoff fodder.

    Re: largest weakness left

    Hello Patriots fans everywheres!There are no known weaknesses left on this team! Stop looking to fix positions that aren't broken! Bill Belichek and Floyd have been analizing this team and the construction of it since last January!They filled every concievable hole they could find,could they upgrade?Maybe,but what do they do sign Plaxico? or Griese? These guys are FA's for a reason one has liquid problems and the other is facing 3 years in prison!So be happy if those are this teams alledged weaknesses by golly this is one stacked team! Don't worry about the ILB they have Junior Seau on standby and at the ready.With acquisition of Derrick Burgess they filled the only real cavity left on this team.I can't hardly contain myself in anticipation for the beggining of this season.The Sox near about killed my appreciation for proffessional sports.

    Is our largest weakness the expectation we will go all the way this year? Last year was a great season despite not making the playoffs. The team proved it could make us proud without TB.
