|Brady attempted all but four of the Pats passes in '02.|
If Tom Brady got hurt, the Patriots are simply in big trouble, writes Len Pasquarelli. Even with Brady healthy, the offense could struggle because of an unsettled backfield where Kevin Faulk and Antowain Smith vie for the lead spot. On a positive note, offseason additions have vastly improved the defense.

Julius Peppers was a major force last year and he looks even better heading into his second pro season.
Pasquarelli: Observations from Falcons camp
Peerless Price has not only improved the Falcons passing attack, but his presence should also impact the ground game.
Clayton: Camp Swagger
Seattle and swagger usually don't belong together. However, Mike Holmgren has a confident bunch.
