Default Dan Koppen: "Broncos are favorites in AFC."

A little offseason football talk. Nice to see Koppen land on his feet.

I disagree with Koppen that the Pats have "closed the gap."

-We went from probably a #10-12 CB in DRC to a top 3 Corner in Talib

-They went from a top 3 corner to probably the #1 corner--a gain of 2 spots

-We went from Mike Adams ( a mid 20's ranked safety) to TJ Ward; a top 3 Safety....an effective gain of 20 spots

- We went from Shaun Phillips (a great value pickup) to an elite pass rusher in WARE

The Pats added Brandon Browner who was able to flourish only in that Seattle secondary; he washed out with us in training camp around 2007 or so and with some other teams and he's missing the first 4 games of the season. Dennard is probably doing to remain their #2 CB with Revis on board. Browner is an upgrade to their Nickel defense allowing Dennard or Revis to move inside.

In summary, our defense should go from mid 20's to low teens with the upgrades that we made. The pats might improve a few spots but they have not closed the gap--their advantage? They have played us in New England for the first 2 regular season meetings with Manning at the helm and some how, they have managed to get us to go to Foxborough for a 3rd straight regular season game.

I agree with Koppen feelings.

Koppen answers the burning question of who is the better trash talker but ducks the question on which QB has the bigger hands!!
