I think this team's hit the point where it was in 1999/2000. Now this does NOT mean that I think Belichick should be gone or that Brady's reached Bledsoe's level of frustration BUT it does mean that the cycle needs to be renewed. There was a big OOMPH for ten years where everything clicked and the little flaws were able to be glossed over much like the mid-90s Patriots. Now here in 2010, a decade after Belichick took over and cleaned house, he has to be that ruthless again. Sign cheap veteran scrappers and reload with solid drafts. If he doesn't, if he continues the way they have since around 2007 or so (maybe earlier but 2007 was really the first draft I could think of which had so little impact) and just keep on with the same people there are currently here... Then well, we as Pats fans might have to wait awhile to return to this level of success.
