We haven't seen beast mode in quite awhile though. I'd like to see a rejuvenated Marshawn. He's a west coast dude, he'll buy into PC's ebullience. Merits of Patriots offense up to now is a moot point (they are #1 in DVOA too for all you Sabermetrics freaks). But they obviously lost a huge dimension to their offense so they'll need to have a whole different look going forward. He must've been one hella contract year diva to get run off like that. Which I don't doubt. On the field, the guy has been an A+ for the Patriots, can't knock him for his production. But evidently Randy can't handle contract years, let him be somebody else's headache. Next malcontent to liquidate: Logan Mankins. Good luck to Randy in Minny, he's actually going to play a 17 game season with games against GB, Patriots, Revis and Jets again. Should be fun.
