New England Patriots

New England Patriots 2018 Season

As the 2016-2017 season’s Super Bowl LI champions and the 2017-2018 season’s Super Bowl finalist, The odds of the New England Patriots to be there again are high and the expectations across the board for that to happen are not short than those two last seasons. Regardless to their loss to Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, given an impressive record of 13-3 last season which brought them the AFC championship, the New England Patriots are still the favorite to win their division in the upcoming season of 2018-2019. Entering their 19th consecutive season with coach Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots lost their defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who spent 5 years, from to 2012 to 2017 with the New England Patriots and was considered the key factor for their highly regarded defensive success. He signed as an head coach with the Detroit Lions. As the new season approaching along with the free-agency period slowly coming to an end, the roster’s in and out transactions of the New England Patriots look questionable given last season’s fiasco with Jimmy Garoppolo which left Tom Brady as the only QB. Noticable moves during the offseason were: CB Malcolm Butler let go after four wild years and it was time for the New England Patriots to end his time with the team; LT Nate Solder who plays the premium position of left tackle was lost in the free agency market; RB Dion Lewis left during free agency to sign a four-year deal with the Tennessee Titans; Wide receiver Danny Amendola signed a two-year deal with the Miami Dolphins after the New England Patriots counter-offered a significantly shorter deal; OT Nate Solder left after seven years with the New England Patriots to sign with the New York Giants. In the 2018 NFL draft the New England Patriots made two interested picks both at the first round: At 23rd overall pick they picked Isaiah Wynn from Georgia and at 31st overall pick they picked Sony Michel also from Georgia. They had few more insignificant late picks in the later rounds. The Pats have been relatively active during free agency period with several interesting and noticeable preseason acquisitions mainly free agency ones: Wide receiver Bernard Reedy was waived back in March 7 2018, CB Ryan Lewis was signed a reserve contract on February 6 2018, OL Luke Bowanko a former Ravens was signed in order to add extra force on the offensive line, TE Troy Niklas signed on April 4 2018, OL Matt Tobin coming from the Seattle Seahawks signed on March 17 2018, RB Jeremy Hill and DE Adrian Clayborn. Prior to the new season tip off there are still few big questions hanging out besides the main one of the backup QB. The New England Patriots’ management and coach Belichick need to figure out how to fill up the big hole left in the in left tackle position, the defensive ends, cornerback, tight end and safety positions. With that being said and despite last Super Bowl lineup crisis and preseason uncertainties, expectations as always are very high from the New England Patriots. The last ten plus seasons showed that Belichick and Brady are capable of keeping the Pats in championship conversations. On the other hand we look at team with 41 year old quarterback, near 70 year old head coach and late, messy and partially-full roster-wise preseason practicing camp which only when season starts will tell its impact. Watch Patriots live on istreamsport.com.

He is the Patriot’s most important player at the moment that’s why the team is taking his suspension hard. Tom Brady and Coach Bill Belichick are not the only superstars on team. Rob Gronkowski or the Gronk as he is more well-known for has also had his fair share of success as the team’s tight end. With 54 touchdowns to his name within his first 5 seasons playing in the NFL, he’s a force to reckon with. Julian Edelman is another wide receiver that’s exciting to watch on the field. For the last two seasons, he had become one of the Patriot’s most reliable wide receiver. He’s fast, skilled and dependable. These are all the traits make up a great receiver.
