RE: [patriotzip] Patriots' empire beginning to crumble
Three weeks into the season with two out of three games a win and our season is already over? Yeah, this guy is some guru, not. I think everyone has been overly confident in Tom Brady and I am guilty of it as well. We expected too much out of Tom Brady I now believe. He hasn’t stopped caring, okay perhaps that was just my line of thinking, I think he has just been uncomfortable with his receivers. He has had to adjust to too many new receivers and I believe he just isn’t comfortable with them yet. I expect that to change over the course of the season. I expect as the Patriots continue to improve the weak spots in their game that their over all game play will also improve. I expect this team to peak in time for the playoffs and I have no doubt that we will win the AFC East despite the improved play of the Bills and the Jets. I am confident of this because I know that we can expect Brady and his receivers to build trust and communication as the season ages. I don’t see the Bills or the Jets having as much room for improving and wonder if both aren’t possibly over-achieving early in the season.

THIS is really depressing.. .does anyone believe it?
I don't WANT to because I want to think that we still have what it takes to win the Super Bowl.
I know nothing lasts forever, but what can we do to get back to where we were?

NFL Guru: New England Patriots' empire beginning to crumble
Andrew Schechtman-Rook, NFL Guru
The New England Patriots sit at 2-1, tied for first in the AFC East. But don't let the standings fool you; these are not the Patriots of recent memory, the team that went 58-22 and won three Super Bowls in the past five years.
The Patriots won their first two games by a total of nine points, which on the surface does not seem too out of place for a team that traditionally relies on winning close games as it proceeds into January.
