"Lofty expectations here. But you know what? I think it's okay." - Gary Tanguay

As the New England Patriots get ready for week one, many people are already looking forward to the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

On Arbella Early Edition, Gary Tanguay admitted that he is one of those people.

"Lofty expectations here. But you know what? I think it's okay," said Tanguay. "They went out and got Revis, Gronk's healthy. We should expect this team to get to the Super Bowl. I don't think these expectations are to much."

Bob Ryan isn't looking that far ahead.

"I don't make that assumption," said Bob Ryan. "I see a few problems here. I see 12-4, I think. I see 11-5, possibly if things go bad. I see 13-3 if they get lucky."

He explained why he isn't as optimistic as Tanguay.

"I'm a glass half empty guy," explained Ryan. "The division will be tougher, finally. They'll have to work very hard to win games in the division, more than usual."
