    Because a great head coach can coach mediocre players up and a bad head coach can coach talented players down.

    Belichick, not Brady, is the reason the Patriots are epic.

    The Pats have a lot of really good players and their share of greats.  They also have GREAT coaches.  These guys build a team that competes on the field and in the bank.  And there is no such thing as karma.

    Ridiculous. Football is a team sport. I guess any QB with a ring is better than Marino? Of course not. Get out of here with that fallacious thinking. 


    Brady has a lot more than a ring.  He has five of them and four SB MVPs.  We could go on and on, but did you see the fourth quarter of SB 51?

    I never want to hear about Dan Quinn being "the guy we missed out on" ever again.  You couldn't have managed a worse game, the clock in particular.  Even Andy Reid must've been flabbergasted by that.

    I watched the game.  My mouth was open and silent for most of five quarters.  I don't know how you blame that loss on anyone.  The Patriot players won that game.  There were some amazing plays and a lot of willful players.  Atlanta was ready to play, but was not ready for the New England Patriots.  The Falcons are going to be a good team for a long time.  So are the Patriots.

    It just amazes me how people think Atlanta has no shot. My mind is blown. You want to know who had no shot? Green Bay and Seattle. They had zero chance to win after that coin toss. ATL dominated. And here we have Jet fans blowing BB and TB. How many threads do we need explaining how the Patriots will " inevitably" win. Who have they played that is good? Who? This is, as someone already mentioned, one of the lesser scary patriot rosters. They don't even have Gronk. AFC teams with the exception of the Broncos and 90% of the time our own Jets, fold like lawn chairs against NE. They literally piss they're pants on game day. Atlanta won't do that. Atlanta doesn't have a complex that these AFC teams have for NE. They are young and hungry and not even Aaron Rodgers playing out of his mind could stop them. He looked  minuscule in comparison. Smmfh. 

    Well, it looks like no one except New England and Atlanta had a shot.  Who would have expected Dallas to bow out so gracelessly?  Not me.  In the end, it's all about match-ups and I think NE thumps the Falcons because Atlanta has no one who matches up with Belichick.

    i have a suspicion that next season is bellichicken's last.  little joshy took his name off the potential hc list so he can be oc again next season.  sounds like he's the heir apparent.  as for brady, the end comes fast and furious.  he seems like he has the mental toughness but at some point the body breaks down.

    and, btw, it's not a given that the patsies beat atlanta. atlanta was able to keep rodgers in check pretty well and then scored a ton of points.  it could be very interesting.

    I think Matt Patricia is the heir apparent.  Josh makes a lot of money as OC.  He gets to wear lots of fancy rings.  He has already failed as a Head Coach.  I think it would take a great opportunity to ply him away -- San Fran is not a great opportunity.  Probably worse than Denver without a franchise QB.

    I watched an interview with Chris Berman and Belichick on Sunday. BB's face lit up when he spoke about his love of coaching and teaching players how to play and the love of the game, etc I can't see him going anywhere anytime soon. He'll probably be there for another 10 years.

    Brady, I think will play another 3 - 5 years, depending on injuries. Honestly, his play hasn't slipped at all. His drive clearly hasn't either. With the controversy over deflategate and his suspension, he's going to want to add to his legacy as much as possible to drown out any doubts about it.

    I agree.  I believe THIS team is the one BB has been building his entire career.  He absolutely dotes on the team as a whole and a LOT of players individually.  Many of the players and coaches have been in this together for a long time and most of the new ones look like they are opening the biggest present under the tree when interviewed.  Every time I watch Matthew Slater, I expect him to pull off the rubber mast to reveal Bill Belichick.  Need to do a DNA test.

    I do not expect BB to retire any time soon, but I thought TB12 might.  They had two impressive QBs in the queue and I thought solidifying his GOAT status with a fifth ring would motivate Brady to call it quits,  but now I think he probably has five years left in the tank.

    Step 1- say good bye to revis, mangold, marshall etc.

    This is going to happen.


    Step 2 - no aging vet free agents

    Aging vets carried the Pats to their first ring.  You need to pick the right ones.


    Step 3 - Qb not addressed in draft.  Petty/hack battle it out for starter in camp.

    QBs must be taken when available then tried out and nurtured or moved out.  You will need to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince.



    Step 4 - this is where it gets interesting.  Long shot- petty or hack develop into a franchise qb.  Most likey- neither is any good and we win 3 games getting the 1st pick in the 2018 draft.


    LOL.  Not going to happen.


    Step 5 - Fire todd bowles



    Step 6 - bring in an offensive guy to coach this team and groom a young qb.

    That's two guys.


    Step 7 - draft the franchise qb number 1 overall.

    Good luck with that.  Suck-for-Luck hasn't really worked out for the Colts, right?


    1. Bring in a guy who knows he is there to build a team

    2. Trade quality picks for quantity picks

    3. Draft a lot of players

    4. Build the defense through the draft supplementing with FAs

    5. Build the OL through the draft

    6. Draft a lot of QBs -- pan for gold.

    7. Enjoy the ride.

    Half or more of the starters on the Pats wouldn't even make it to another team's practice squad. This is the benefit of having a cheating org. Only team that can line up any line man out there and get the job done, when you can hold you can look good. 

    Take a look at the wide receivers they have, LMAO. They couldn't even play in a good college team. 


    Someone needs to test the water in California.

    That's funny. A lot of people don't remember this but the week of the 2015 Super Bowl Kraft was interviewed and basically said that Brady was a great guy and like a son to him. And that he had been willing to take one for the team by signing a contract that gave the team more cap flexibility and Brady less money. And then he said about this guy he spoke of as like his own son that if he hadn't agreed to this deal they might not have been able to sign him. Which was a very nice way of saying they might have gotten rid of him. 

    It's a business.  Bledsoe is STILL like a son to RKK.  Always welcome in the owners box and home.  Just been replaced on the field.  It's going to happen to Brady eventually.  It happened to Montana.

    1. Me-vi$ i$n't getting enough in endor$ement$
    2. Me-vi$ want$ out of NY
    3. New agent$ offer $omething not ca$h related

    I can't imagine it'$ the latter, becau$e the Jet$ would probably love to get out from under that contract.  $o, $omeone ha$ promi$ed lucrative endor$ement$ or $omething not ca$h related.  Endor$ements would enrich the agent$ and it'$ not likely that hi$ agent$ would not be able or willing to $ecure endor$ement deal$.

    That leave$ Roc Nation a$ the likely motivation behind the change.



    New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith was one of the first professional athletes to sign with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports when he was drafted out of West Virginia University in 2013. To preview the new NFL season, Billboard already spoke to a bunch of NFL players about their pump-up music, but given Smith’s ties to the music industry, we were eager to hear what he had to say.

    The Jay Z client is a big Hova supporter, but that’s not where his tastes end. On the red carpet at Tuesday night's NFL Hall of Fashion event in Manhattan, Smith listed what he bumps to get psyched before football: 

    “I listen to Jay Z, some Kanye, and I mix it up -- some rock and roll, a little bit of jazz.”

    The last concert attended by the second year signal caller was Jay Z and Beyonce’s On the Run tour at the Met Life Stadium, where he got to play the spectator on the New York Jets’ home turf for a change.

    He was in VIP, of course. “You can go to any concert you want,” he tells Billboard on the perks of being signed to Roc Nation.


    Roc on!

  10. If the NFL is rigged, there has been no better choreographed season than the one capped by Superbowl III in which a handsome quarterback willed a scrappy gang green to the AFL's first championship.  This, btw, is my favorite non-Patriots team.  

    If we have learned anything over the last five seasons, it's that the NFL ownership is not capable of scripting anything.  The deflate-gate drama has been grossly mishandled.  

    Monday's game was poorly officiated, but I can't see how anyone could objectively say the Pats benefited from that.  I'll concede that the official blew the whistle to protect the quarterback, but, if you watch the replay, it's easy to see why he did.  The NFL has ALWAYS protected marquee players from injury with quick whistles.

    The Patriots will face the Panthers in SB50.  There is no script that has the Panthers eliminated.  They are a terrific team -- much better than the rest of the NFC.  

  11. Best chance for the Pats to lose will be Sunday November 29th at Denver - Denver's D is sick and they can cover WRs better than anyone as well as rush the passer.  NE may be a bit beat up after the Buffalo game the Monday before and then must fly out to Denver to play in the thin air.  Other than that game - no one is coming close to beat this team (UNFORTUNATELY).

    The best chance for the Pats to lose is game 15.  By the time the Patriots go to Denver, Manning may be done.  It will be interesting to see how their defense does against a team with a winning record tomorrow.  We already know the Jets can play with the Pats.

  12. This role in their offense is what produces these players. They aren't "finding" anyone, they are just scheming to a particular skillset really well. Not to take away from Lewis, but this role is the evolution of they were doing with Kevin Faulk a decade ago. Lots of guys have excelled in it. 

    Ultimately, it comes down to Brady making everything they do out of that offense look brilliant.

    I don't agree with this.  The Pats have had a LOT of really good receivers in who have not worked out.  Welker, Gronk, Edelman, LaFell, Amendola, Lewis, and Moss all seem to understand what Brady is going to do -- or at least what Brady needs them to do.  Good quarterbacks always seem to have one or two guys who 'are on the same page', but, right now, Brady has five.  The ability to make something work when things don't go as planned keeps the chains moving.
