To preview the upcoming season we have reached out to our fellow Fansided sites to get the inside info on the 2014 Chicago Bears opponents. Today we tackle the 8th opponent on the Bears schedule, the New England Patriots. Check out how Cyrus Geller from Musket Fire answered our infamous “5 Questions”.
What did you like and/or dislike about what the Patriots did in free agency and the draft?
I honestly have loved what the Pats have done thus far in the offseason. On the defensive side of the ball, they have added Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, which instantly vaults their pass defense to the top of the league. People say that they need to give Tom Brady more weapons to win a fourth Super Bowl, but giving him a good defense is just as good, if not better than adding more playmakers on offense.
Which rookie are you most looking forward to seeing this season?
I would say Jimmy Garoppolo, but we probably won’t be seeing much of him. So I’m really excited to see defensive tackle Dominique Easley in action. When healthy he is one of the most explosive interior rushers I have ever seen coming out of college. One of the most important things a defense needs in today’s NFL is a good pass rush, and if Easley lives up to his potential, he will give New England that missing element.
