You might be asking, "A new thread so soon after we won another Super Bowl?" I say yes, because this promises to be a very busy offseason. Said offseason got underway today with a big announcement about the coaching staff. Eric Mangini, the man who, as defensive backs coach, was largely responsible for creating the schemes used when the secondary got hit by a rash of injuries that forced both starting cornerbacks out of action, was named the Patriots' new defensive coordinator. Mangini had been rumored to be up for the defensive coordinator's job in both Miami (where mentor Nick Saban is the new head coach) and Cleveland (where he would've joined former Patriots defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's staff), so keeping him was a big coup. Let's hope he does as well as Crennel did.
