For most franchises a 10-6 record and a fourth divisional crown in five years would be a major accomplishment, but not for the New England Patriots who were the defending Super Bowl champions and had won three of the last four NFL title games.
In 2005 the New England Patriots were beset by injuries, lack of overall team speed, and their major competitors in the powerful AFC, the Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers improving while the New England Patriots regressed albeit slightly which was just enough to push them off the top of the mountain in the conference.
In 2008 the New England Patriots should be better simply because they will not be as injury-riddled as they were last season and the influx of speed to their roster.

Therefore England, like everyone else, might have to be prepared to change their batting order, although their players have hardly had time to bed down in one regular position without being shifted up or down.
