We’ve already touched on the possibility of Ed Reed as a potential Patriot here, but when free agency begins, there are a handful of less-heralded players who could appeal to New England as well.

The Super Bowl featured two teams that were better than the Patriots this year, two teams that beat the Patriots during the regular season and one -- the eventual Super Bowl champion Ravens -- that handed New England its lunch in the AFC champions

With the 2012 season done, we’ve decided to take a look back the 10 best plays of the year for the Patriots. Not every one of the plays ended in a touchdown, sack or interception, but the combination of execution, results and situation led us to name it one of the best of the year.

The Patriots' season ended almost two weeks ago (by this point, it seems like it was months) with a loss to the Ravens in the AFC title game, and by now, most New England football fans have had more than their fair share of storylines and hype involving Sunday’s game between San Francisco and Baltimore. (Did you know that the two coaches are brothers?

  Ed Reed is a Hall of Famer, a rare talent who can get away with being out of position, but still managing to come away with the right play at the right time. And if the Patriots can get the impending free agent on their terms this offseason -- that is to say one, or maybe two years tops, on short money -- they should jump at the chance.

It’s always a pleasure to get some additional insight into the game from a scout -- they offer a perspective on life in the NFL that we rarely see. With that in mind, we asked an NFC scout who watched plenty of Patriots’ games this year about three points of emphasis for New England heading into the offseason.

  Throughout the offseason, we’ll check in on New England’s free agent class. Here’s the first look at the group of players who were with the Patriots in 2012 but aren’t under contract to the team going forward, as well as a thumbnail sketch about their respective situations and their chances of returning.

We know that some people think stats are for losers. But we believe that, when given some context and deconstructed with the help of some film breakdown, they can be very illustrative, and help give a clearer picture of where a team succeeds or fails.
