    My Greatest Concerns for the 2013 Pats...

    ALways number one is injuries because - as happened when Gronk and Mankins played too hurt to be effective in the SB 2 years ago - it can end your chances..... The healthier tema in the playoffs has a noticeable advantage.

    Beyond that however I am concerned with:

    1. Pass rush

    2. O line against the most dominanting defenses - this is a tall order for any O line.. to play well against a dominating D... but that is what it will take to win a SB.

    3. Quality in secondary (though a good part of this speaks to depth as I think McCOurty is a good S and Talib and Dennard good CBs)

    4. WRs and TB being enough in synch to be good and not just riding TBs arm... I have no real worries (beyond health) about Amendola. ANd while I have hopes for a few WRs.. even high hopes... it needs to be realized on the field not on a fantasy football sheet.

    I'd put concerns for the front 7 on D on my list.  We haven't seen Armstead play yet, Collins is an unknown, they've lost depth at DT, C. Jones is coming off an injury, can Kelly play at a high enough level ...

    I agree. I lean that way with the comment about pass rush but it also does have import in  the  run D too. I just think that the greatest deficiency and need is in the pass rush in terms of the play of the front seven. ANd I am not talking about sacks as much as being able to regularly put pressure on passing downs. I expect we are either in agreement or very close to it.
