I hate it when Dan Shaughnessy's right.Hub Blog's worried that the Pats have entered the post-Super Bowl eras of Chuck Noll and Don Shula.
Heard Smerlas and deOssie talk up the Pats' defensive leadership gap on WEEI last evening, and I think we will hear a lot more about that... it's surely not a coincidence that our last Superbowl came when Rodney Harrison and Teddy Bruschi were healthy regulars. And that was... 5 years ago. As we know, "the NFL is a copycat league" ... any NFL advantage is temporary.
So, this sad Pats fan wants to know: how temporary is NFL disadvantage? When does the window close on Tom Brady? Is Patsboy09 onto something, or is he just forshadowing the next nine months of Talk Radio?
