You can feel it in the air, can't you? The coming of a new period in the NFL, where everything is up for grabs. The New England Patriots aren't the best team in the NFL. They aren't even the second best. They are what they are, no matter what they did in the past, and that is a top ten team, but no one any more scary than the Denver Broncos, or the Washington Redskins. As long as they have Tom Brady, Adam Vinatieri and Bill Belichick they'll be fine, we were always told.
Well guess what? They don't have Vinatieri any more. See the Washington Post.
So I ask you: Why should we fear the Patriots any more? Why should they be considered a team to look out for?
In fact, I'll even answer: they shouldn't. The Steelers are now the kings of the NFL. Close behind them are the Carolina Panthers, the Seattle Seahawks, the Cincinnati Bengals,the Denver Broncos, and the Indianapolis Colts. A step back are the Redskins, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Chicago Bears, and the Patriots.
