A Quick Note on the Patriots

One quick note on the Pats that I forgot to mention earlier:

When inevitably a few big name running backs and receivers come available this offseason or are there in the draft, remember that the Patriots finished the year 5th in total offense, 6th in rushing offense, and 8th in points per game. In short, they don't need help there. Once again, it is the defense that needs work because for the third year in a row their failure to get a stop when they absolutely needed one - in this case the infamous 3rd and 15 against the Jets - cost them their season. Defense folks, defense. Even if Larry Johnson can be had. Spend the cash - and all of the cash - on defense.
