What an amazing game last night..I found myself almost as happy as I was when we won last year. With a win, the Pats would have had their 4th superbowl of the past decade, and would have placed themselves among the greatest teams of all time.
Now that the season is over, I can't help but think ahead to next year. I still feel like the Pats are the #1 team in the AFC (unfortunately), and I think we need to make some rather big moves to catch up. Right now, I have no idea what to expect from Marvin next year. Some people say he will come back as good as ever, while some think he won't even play for us again. Because of this uncertainty, I feel like a top-tier receiver is something we need to look for via the draft, or free agency. I still think our OL can use improvement, but I really don't know what players are available there so I can't comment on who to go after.
On the defensive side of the ball, I don't have too many worries. I think more than anything, we need to look for depth. If possible, we could try to find an upgrade at one of the LB positions.
What players does everyone think are a realistic option to pick up this offseason? And who does everyone think should be our #1 priority? I haven't looked at any kind of Free Agent list so I don't know who's available.
Being an IU fan, I watched all the games this year. I feel like one guy that we should try to pick up is James Hardy. I don't know how big of a difference he will make his first year, but he truly reminds me of someone like TO (without the attitude), or Randy Moss. Thoughts?
