New England Patriots Still Have an Elite Offense
There’s been a fairly big shake up going on with the New England Patriots over the past couple of weeks. Starting with the team’s failure to re-sign Wes Welker, and most recently with the release of Brandon Lloyd. We all know the Patriots are a team that just reloads, and this is just another one of those situations.
Of course New England had to replace their departed receivers, so they inked Danny Amendola and Donald Jones to contacts. The Amendola deal was actually in place before Welker announced he would be moving on, and the Pats claim they wanted to keep both, but that’s debatable. Regardless, Amendola is Welker’s replacement, when it’s all said and done.
Jones is a bit of a wild-card after battling injuries so far in his career, but if any team can turn him into a reliable wide out, it’s the Patriots.
What people are forgetting – New England still has Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez on the roster. That’s right, the game’s best tight end combination. Even if the rest of the receivers on the roster weren’t any good, the Pats would get by on the production of Gronk and Hernandez, alone. But that’s not a concern, because the team has brought in adequate replacements for the departed members of their receiver corps.
Patriots’ fans shouldn’t worry a bit about this transition in Foxborough. It will be just another one in a long line of new players for the franchise. As long as the two constants are still there – Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, New Enlgand will be fine. There’s still a ton of talent on the roster, and the team’s offensive production should stay steady in 2013.
