Is it me or was New England flat out lucky as H to the double LL to smoke and mirror all season long last year and barely cruise by in the worst division in football? They really didn't beat the Ravens either. I will say that coach's scheme to work with what they had was brilliant, the 2 tight end action was money and Brady played out of his mind, but overall it was slippery, fly by the seat their pants looking offense. Is the defense really going to just be that much better now relative to the sieve it was last year? Probably better, but not great. Can Brady play at that same level and not get hammered this year? I don't think so. I'm not on the Kool Aid that offensive scheme will hold up again. They got a punch in the mouth waiting for them in Tennessee. Weak division or not, I think the Jets or Buffalo are even money to edge them out.

nope.
The Jets defense might outscore their offense this year. Buffalo's interesting, but ultimately just a slightly above average team that's probably good enough to get a wild card spot, but not good enough to beat good teams.

The Patriots are still the best team in the division by far and, barring a Brady injury, should easily take the AFC East again.

They didn't beat the Ravens? Then why were they in the Super Bowl? :-k

Are the Patriots still ending this era? viewtopic.php?f=2&t=230203&hilit=patriots+dynasty

Yep, this is the Pats division to lose.

Are you one of those mentally ill homeless people I've been reading about? If not, then I won't feel bad about offering up to 5K sands straight up picking the Pats to win the AFC East and you can have all the other AFC East teams. (if only you had some sands to wager... :( )

Huh? They're not out there running the Wild Cat. And they don't even have the same OC as last year, Josh McD is back in town calling the plays. They aren't going to have any problems on offense as long as Brady is healthy.

I've been as critical of the Patriots as you can reasonably be, and they keep stomping folks despite being essentially a 3-4 player team (IMO Patsy fans, don't get your panties in a bunch). Until Brady retires or gets Favre-bad, they are likely to be in the playoffs for the near future.

It's just you. I don't see how someone could think the Jets have a better shot at that division. Jets are extremely average and the Patriots will still have one of the best offenses in the league.

I agree with the OP. Also, demaryius thomas is the most talented receiver peyton's ever had the privilege of throwing to.

Is this some kind of a joke or just trolling? Even saying the AFC East is the worst division is quite a reach.

AFC South:
Texans
Jaguars
Titans
Colts

AFC West:
Raiders
Broncos
Chiefs
Chargers

NFC West:
49ers
Cardinals
Seahawks
Rams

The NFC West is, by far, the worst division in football.

A top 3 QB and HC cover up weaknesses.

No, nothing to do with luck.
