New England Patriots tickets are winners. Nobody in their right mind would dispute that. Every NFL season the Patriots are considered a team that could go all the way to the Super Bowl. However, it has been awhile since the New England Patriots were actually IN a Super Bowl. This offseason, the Patriots signed Darrelle Revis at cornerback. If Revis is healthy he’ll give New England a shutdown corner to aid a defense that some see as the only thing that’s kept New England from claiming another title.
Is this the beginning of the end for Tom Brady? The stats don’t really bear that out but he’s beginning to approach the end of the useful life of an NFL quarterback. But Brady still has some juice left. In the 2013 season, Brady threw for over 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns. Those numbers could be better if he still had some of the offensive weapons he’s been blessed with in the past. It looks like management is planning ahead. Ryan Mallett is on the bubble. he hasn’t had much chance to prove himself under fire but the Patriots set tongues wagging about the future with the drafting of Jimmy Garapollo in the 2nd Round. Either the Patriots are planning for the future or just bagging some insurance. Tom Brady should be around for another few years.
If the Patriots have a glaring need it’s at tight end. One former Patriot standout is in jail and Gronkowski has been hurt for the past two seasons. If he’s healthy New England is in good shape. If he’s not, the passing game will suffer.
Look for Patriots tickets to gift fans with another playoff spot. Whether New England can revisit old glories is another question that will only be answered in the 2014 NFL season.Eric Drouant
