Video: Measuring progress for Patriots

By ESPNBoston.com



In the latest in our series of videos from our SportsCenter Patriots Draft Special (watch above), our panelists -- ESPNBoston.com’s Tedy Bruschi and Mike Reiss, ESPN draft guru Todd McShay and Patriots Football Weekly’s Andy Hart -- discuss the pressure that’s on the team next season to win a playoff game, something they haven’t done since 2007.

“Having lost the last two seasons in the [first round of the] playoffs, they do that again and you really start having some serious questions, like ‘What is going on?’,” Bruschi said. “So there is going to be a pressure situation come next postseason. That’s what I’m excited to see, whether they’ve made that progression and learned from those previous two playoff losses.”
