Been thinking about this for a few months and finally decided to post. Would have done a poll but I'm not sure how to on here. For me there are 3 scenarios which will play out while both Bill and Tom remain Patriots: 1. Get back to Elite level and win another Lombardi 2. Get back to Elite level and go close but no more Superbowl wins 3. Remain in the pack and be content reaching the play-offs Don't see a fourth option as I don't think it's in either Bill or Tom's mindset to be anything but a winner of sorts, even if it's just the odd play-off game. Have to say I'm torn between 1 and 2. Still think there are plenty of pieces in place for us to become an Elite team again. Having 2 first round draft picks next year will help. We really need to make sure we use them wisely as they may define the sort of team we are over the next 5-10 years. The defence will get better. The linebacker group will grow. Tight Ends look set and we'll always hopefully have a receiver or two for Tom to throw to...the more the better. End of the day if we're 16-0 or 0-16 I'm a homer who will always be proud to be a Pat. My question is just where do you see the team being over the next few years as the Bill and Tom show enters it's final few seasons.
