2010 Training Camp Outlook: New England Patriots

New England PatriotsFrom BigpoppaThaShowstoppa,

The Patriots had an odd 2009 campaign; they won their division but never felt like the dominating Patriots of old. Heading into this 2010 training camp, the Patriots have 12/1 odds to win the Super Bowl.

Tom Brady played solid in his return from leg surgery. His numbers look great—though a far cry from his 50-touchdown year in 2007—but he was definitely off the mark at times. He should be better with another offseason of recovery under his belt.

Who will catch his passes is another question. Randy Moss is back but he doesn’t seem to be working like he was the past two seasons; he definitely spent a lot of time complaining in the offseason. Wes Welker, who caught 123 passes last year, blew out his knee in the final game of the season. Word is he’s on-track to make a miracle recovery, though, and he could be ready for the start of the season.
