2020:  The D will again be amongst the league's best.  The schedule is one of the toughest in the league.  Buisness as usual, except for the small unnoticed departure of some guy named Tom.   So is this the year, after 2 decades, when all of the Patriots haters finally get to watch the Pats collapse?   One question will tell that tale.... Jarrett Stidham?   He may be the NFL's biggest mystery in 2020.  If he is successful,  Belichick looks like a genius.  Unfortunately for folks in Foxboro, that's not likely.  For the first time in ever, the Pats could very well suck.  The D will hide some of this, but .500 might be a realistic goal.
