It's not like NE was old school Indianapolis where Peyton Manning was willing them into relevancy and they went to an immediate #1 pick when he was out.  NE has a good roster. As long as they get even below average QB play, they'll be a playoff contender.

Exactly.  They'll end up in a situation like Pittsburgh last year.  Get good enough QB play to still be good, but not good enough to be a real contender.

NE's roster is pretty depleted. Even with Brady last year, they couldn't win a playoff game. They missed Gronk badly, were thin at WR, and their #1 defense couldn't stop Derrick Henry when it counted. Since then they've lost their NT, their best pass rusher, and a versatile LB. They had to use a franchise tag on a guard which isn't a sign of how well stocked they are but of desperation.

I agree.  Their roster is going to be flipped.  Maybe they just draft a guy in the first or second this year.  Maybe they wait.  I just don't see NE being as dominant moving forward, regardless if who they get at QB.  Dalton/Newton/Winstion are the best of the rest, and none of them are taking them deep into January

And by flipping the roster, I mean that they will keep their core players intact, but start replacing aging vets even quicker that they normally do.  It will look similar to what we did last year.  Keep the key cogs, but start revamping where they can

I think NE may finish last in the AFCE this year. If they play Stidham most of the year and he struggles, they could be a 4 win team. If they start off poorly, they may go into full Tank for Trevor mode.

That would be shocking, and i would very much bet the over on that.

Let's see what they do at QB. If it's between Stidham and Hoyer, I think they are more likely to see what they have with Stidham. They know what they have with Hoyer.

The Pats just released Cody Kessler. They're down to Stidham and Hoyer. New guy coming in soon?
