This is a development I have been watching closely Mark. BB has built
another powerful SB capable team but this time the team is young and there
are few holes. At almost all the key positions there is one of the better
players in the league starting and often their backups have the ability to
be starters on other teams.
One other thing. This team went to the SB last year and lost but I am
noticing no drop-off in enthusiasm nor any kind off a 'tough loss hangover'
which can bedevil a young team. This team seems just as hungry, probably
more so as last year with a ton of confidence in what it can do and appears
to be completly buying into BB's system and methods.
Pats future looks great from here!
