I do not think the Pats can win it all without Hightower. He is a playmaker and his two plays vs Seattle and Atlanta were game changers. Therefore I dont think the Pats win the SB this year because he is out. And btw they need to find a way to replace him quickly (like this draft and not a 6th rounder) I think trading Grappallo and Bressitt in the same 2 months was foolish by Belichick. Ok Bears and Browns fans. I am critical of the Pats too. They just have less flaws at the moment.
