The Patriots made conscious decisions to not bring back Welker, Lloyd, & Woodhead. The Hernandez thing blew up in their face. Gronk's back was something they new about for several months (or weeks), plenty of time to "plan" for it.

Dobson & Thompkins appear to be very talented & Edleman is as much a Welker clone as Amendola was.

I think they expected some growing pains. Some of the other things we're seeing, Vareen's injury, Amendola's injury, Riddley's poor play, etc... are the regular things an NFL team has to deal with throughout the season.

I am wondering if it's too much too soon for them, but squeaking by two divisional opponents with Ws.... that's got to help buy them some time.
