One view of top questions facing Pats

June, 27, 2012
As part of his league-wide offseason breakdown, Sports Illustrated’s Chris Burke examines three questions relating to the Patriots entering the 2012 season.
  1. How will all the new faces mesh?
  2. Who’s going to pressure the quarterback?
  3. Can the tight ends dominate again?

He highlights the team’s busy offseason in the draft and free agency, a potential plan to replace the 20 sacks generated by Andre Carter and Mark Anderson a year ago, and expectations for the pair of third-year tight ends.

Burke foresees another AFC East division crown for the team in 2012, and pegs them as Super Bowl contenders as well.

His piece got us thinking, and we want to know your three biggest questions about the Patriots as training camp approaches.
