    These two coaches are former coaches for the Patriots and the ONLY guys who have ever been affiliated with the Pats.

    Kirby was RBs coach for the Pats in the Pete Carroll era in the late 90s while Dom was assistant/defensive coach here just over a year ago

    Amazing that on neither roster of this years Super Bowl entrants is one former Patriot PLAYER

    Other than Vinatieri,Klecko and Gay...IIAC there has not been another player who has won a SB after leaving NE.

    And Evans on IR (he still got a ring, IIRC, though).

    The Patriots seem to have a good idea when it's a good time to let a player go (with some exceptions, obviously), but I'm willing to bet these lists look similar with any team in the class of the NFL (Indy and Pitt specifically). If I had more initiative, I'd look up how many current players have left those two teams and won a Super Bowl.

    Well, BB knows when to let players go. I was pissed about Lawyer Milloy and Deion Branch, but it seems like he gets them in their prime, hence their lack of success outside (Milloy's been great though)

    The backup TE for Pitt was in camp for NE if I am not mistaken.
