    For residents like Mitch , Will Hunting , monosylab1k / mono , Boston Pancake , Mark Celibate etc. to discuss week to week about how receiver X sucks, McCourty twin X is washed up, the sky is falling because it's December and we're only 11-3 and 2nd place in the AFC , etc.

    My official prediction for 2019 is, 12-4 and another first round bye. 5-1 in the division. Bad division. 2nd place in the division gets 5 wins.

    Looks like the Pats and Bill Belichick are at it again:

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...-receiver-role

    Similar beginnings to Julian Edelman, but in Etling's case he is a 6'3" 220 dude, so potentially an outside receiver who can maybe ultimately play some slot, hybrid tight end if necessary. I don't doubt Belichick at all for making this guy into a lowkey star in time.

    Iím happy as hell that they peaked at the right time last season, but I think their regular season performance is more indicative of where this Patriots run is headed. Nkeal Harry will be a nice addition, but losing Gronk really hurts the run game. Iím expecting 11-5 or 10-6 this year, with Brady continuing to incrementally decline but not fall off the cliff. Probably making another AFC title game but this might actually be the last one. If Josh Gordon gets reinstated then all bets are off.

    I just don't get why? Their schedule is easier than the last 2 years. Unlike the last 2 years they don't have any particularly hard AFC road games... at all. You can argue Baltimore which they might lose but it's not a given they'll be very good with a gimmick at QB. (Then again, the Pats lost to Bortles and Mariota last year so anything is possible.) They probably lose at Philly, too. But all the other playoff contender opponents (Browns, Chiefs, Cowboys & [arguably] Steelers)... are at home for the Patriots. The rest of their opponents (Bengals, Redskins, Giants, Texans, and of course the division games) should be fairly easy victories. You could argue they lose 1 of those, say a clunker Week 2 in Miami, but no more than that.

    AFC E is still a steaming pile of shit so they'll coast their way to another division crown

    lack of gronk is going to be a huge deal tbh... i think 10-6 or 11-5 (just by virtue of having so many easy divisional matchups) and a loss in the first or second round sounds right

    Belichick/Brady.............that is the best coach/QB combo ever, until that changes the Pats will be in the mix.

    We had a great combo...Walsh/Montana, and look what we did.

    Noll/Bradshaw
    Lombardi/Starr
    Brown/Otto......in the old AAFC

    It all starts right there.

    Official 2019 Game-to-Game Prediction - NE


    vs PIT W - Banner ceremony, possibly Brady's last, against the weakest Steelers team since 2013. No-brainer here.
    @ MIA L - Tom Brady, Florida, and September have always been a dreadful combination. Early Season Fitzmagic strikes yet again.
    vs NYJ W - Le'Veon Bell returns to Gillette Stadium, where he has never played well for his career. Comfort win for the Pats.
    @ BUF W - Bill Belichick/Tom Brady's utter domination and ownership of the Buffalo franchise continues.
    @ WAS W - Simply a mismatch. The Skins' D-Line will hurt Brady a few times, but that secondary won't hold up their end for long.
    vs NYG W - Eli's final matchup against the team he is famous for vanquishing doesn't end well for the spiraling Giants. Dan Jones time?
    @ NYJ W - Pats pull off a relatively close road win this time. Upstart Jets play them tough at home.
    vs CLE W - At home, but closer than one might expect. Browns give them a big run for their money, but the Pats score a clutch win.
    @ BAL L - Belichick gets questioned after getting beat by a running QB over and over again. Ravens' D gives Brady a relative off night.
    @ PHI L - Patriots' secondary is very good, but they have an off game against the brutal passing attack of the Flyin' Eagles.
    vs DAL L - At this point, the sky is falling in New England. Three losses in a row, are you kidding me? When has this ever happened?
    @ HOU W - After a shaky first half fuels the media fire (is Brady finally done?), the Pats then dominate and win handily. Order restored.
    vs KC W - Huge, clutch win against the #1 team and offense in the AFC, similar to last year and in 2013. Really helps to be at home.
    @ CIN W - Cincinnati at this point is a disaster and likely trying out other QBs in preparation for the end of the mundane Dalton era.
    vs BUF W - Playoff push, and they own the Bills. They win, but are eliminated from the #1 seed on the same day.
    vs MIA W - Possibly a meaningless victory, but they won't lose at home to the Dolphins who are playing to lose for draft position.

    Final Regular Season Record: 12-4
    AFC East Place: 1st
    AFC Ranking/Seed: 2
