The rest of the NFL is playing for 2nd in 2012. Patriots dominating Free Agency
The Patriots lost Superbowl 46 on a last second play without their best offensive weapon. Most teams would look at that season as a success and just stand pat during free agency. Not Bill Belichick. Belichick has spent free agency flying slightly under the radar and just plucking “2nd tier players” and plugging holes. So far the Patriots have signed Safety Steve Gregory, OG/OT Robert Gallery, DT/DE Jonathan Fanene, WR Brandon Lloyd, TE Daniel Fells, DE Trevor Scott, and WR Donte Stallworth. Belichick just absolutely lapped the field by adding quality depth players at areas of need. With Fells, Stallworth, Lloyd, and Gallery, the Patriots offense has literally ZERO weaknesses. Last season the Patriots offense was somewhat limited. They didn’t have a WR who could stretch the defense vertically or horizontally. Now the Patriots have two guys who fill that role. The Patriots have the look of an unstoppable offense. Perhaps even more unstoppable than 2007. Oh…and the Patriots have two first round picks and two second round picks. They can use those to further address the pass rush and the secondary. Bill Belichick is just lapping the field. It’s a great time to be a Patriots fan. This team couldn’t have been closer to a championship and now Belichick has put his roster over the top. Dynasty Reign.
PS: I know people are going to call me a hypocrite for loving the Dante Stallworth signing for the Patriots and saying how the Bears suck because they got Brandon Marshall. Marshall has had several incidences of being a wacko and beating women and shit. Stallworth accidentally involuntarily man slaughtered one guy while drunk driving in Cleveland. And I am pretty sure he was hanging out with Lebron James that night…so it was probably Lebron’s fault. Totally different scenario.
