The 2015-2016 Season - New England Patriots

Ordinarily, the talk of a defending Super Bowl champion during an offseason focuses strictly on whether they can compete. In the case of the New England Patriots, that talk focused almost exclusively on the status of quarterback Tom Brady. Brady was suspended five games for his role in the Deflategate scandal, outraging the Patriots and their fans. Regardless of those emotions, the Pats may have to depend on untested second-year man Jimmy Garoppolo to get them through those first five games.

If Brady is able to get back on the field via the legal system, things will go back to normal, but the team still needs help with its running game. None of the players, led by LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray, inspire a lot of confidence, which could be bad since Garoppolo needs this unit to thrive to take pressure of him. Among the receivers, tight end Rob Gronkowski makes news on and off the field, but players like Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell are equally important to the team’s success.

The Pats are blessed with a deep offensive line, but that likely got better with the arrival of guard Tre’ Jackson. The tackles are solid with Nate Solder and Sebastian Vollmer, while Bryan Stork handles things at center. On defense, Vince Wilfork is gone from the line, but the team’s top pick, Malcom Brown could be in line to replace him. The strength of the unit is at linebacker with the trio of Don’t’a Hightower, Jerod Mayo and Jamie Collins ranking among the best in the league. Mayo wil hopefully be able to avoid the injuries that limited his 2014 campaign.

More departures in the secondary mean that the cornerbacks may be vulnerable, even if one of them will likely be Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler. Safety will have Devin McCourty to patrol, but this area bears watching. Another trip to the Super Bowl isn’t out of the question, but how well New England navigates the expected absence of Brady will tell the tale of where they end up during the 2015 NFL season.

Bledsoe Goes Down, Brady Steps in, Championships Follow

Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr., was selected with the 199th pick in the 6th round of the 2000 NFL draft. His NFL Combine were less than impressive, and he was nothing more than a flyer pick by the Pats. Brady started the 2000 season behind quarterback and All-Pro Drew Bledsoe and 2 other signal callers. But in 2001, the unsung and unheralded Brady got his chance. On September 23 in a game against AFC East rival New York Jets, Bledsoe suffered a hit from Jets linebacker Mo Lewis. He was replaced by Brady for the Patriots final series of the game. Brady was named the starter for the following game, but it was not until the 5th game of that season that Brady began to show signs of the future Hall of Famer he was destined to become.

In an odd twist of fate in the AFC Championship Game against Pittsburgh. Later that year and, Brady injured his knee and was relieved by Bledsoe. The Pats won the game and entered Super Bowl XXXVI against the NFC Champion St. Louis Rams as 14 point underdogs. That was when Brady went engineer one of his signature last-minute victories for New England. On their own 17 yard line with no timeouts and just 81 seconds left, and the score tied, Brady picked apart the Rams, spiking the ball on the St. Louis 31 with just 7 seconds left. Adam Vinatieri made the game-winning field goal try as time expired. Brady won the MVP of that Super Bowl, and went on to lead the Patriots to 4 other Super Bowl appearances heading into the 2014 season.

Tom Brady has won 3 super Bowls, been named Super Bowl MVP twice, has earned 2 NFL regular season MVP titles and has made it to the Pro Bowl 9 times. Brady has thrown 389 regular season touchdowns (13 games into the 2014 season) against just 141 interceptions. He has also accumulated 52,709 passing yards, and completed an impressive 63.5% of all of his regular season passes. He has made the postseason with the Patriots 11 times, throwing 43 touchdowns in 26 playoff games for 6,424 yards. Brady has often stated that he plans to play quarterback for the Patriots into his 40s, which means New England could have a Hall of Fame quarterback at its helm well past the 2018 season.
