I like the Gaffney deal a lot. He was basically the number 2 (w/ Wes in the slot) by the end of the season.
You could almost pencil the Pats in for 12 wins and a berth in the AFC Div. Round. The only thing that stinks about their schedule is all the West Coast games. 6 against NYJ, BUF and MIA, and then KC, OAK, SF, STL, ARI. It's waaaaaay early, but I like it.
