After finally realizing how difficult and special it is for a football team to win a Super Bowl, the first thing that comes to mind now that the initial euphoria is over is how truly amazing the BB/Brady era Pats are. Now the Pats have always been that team I pulled for as long as they weren't playing the Seahawks. I was one of those guys that enjoyed seeing them make it in 85 and cringed when they drafted Bledsoe first, which left our idiot ownership at the time to draft Rick Mirer. LOL. But to see the way they developed from a very blue collar team, to a complete dominant machine under the leadership of Tom Brady was nothing short of impressive. I enjoyed seeing them on the rise and on one Monday night I watched Tom Brady complete an entire drive with an empty backfield against the Steelers with ease. I knew how good he was, but that night I knew he was simply the best I have ever seen. For the Pats to get 3 championships in today's NFL while year after year knocking on the door is nothing short of a dynasty level accomplishment. Time and Time again, injuries stacking up they just get the job done with a roster peppered with a variety of players that seem to change a lot every year. They are clearly the team of the last decade. Their ability to sustain is unmatched and now that I fully understand what really goes into winning a Super Bowl, how long it takes and coping with the salary cap I just wanted to share that opinion with the Pats faithful. There are a lot of NFL fans that want to see the Pats fail because of that success and I am definitely not one of them. The old Niners, Cowboys and Steelers teams just didn't have to contend with the same FA rules and salary restrictions that NE has had to. They boast of 20+ year old stretches like it happened yesterday, yet year after year the Pats are in position to win another title. You guys have it good, there is no arguing that. Rather than be the jealous Niner or Cowboys fan threatened by the potential takeover of recent Super Bowl Titles, I watch in admiration. I know that if the injuries and other outside things didn't take place in 2013 that the Pats would have been the AFCC champs and no way would they have been the victim that Denver was in the Super Bowl. When Talib went down, that hurt the Pats chances in a big way, but just the fact that they were in the AFCC AGAIN with all the adversity says a lot about your coach and QB. I have been reading this board here and there and you guys as a group are some of the most realistic I have ever read on another team's forum. I plan on hanging out once in a while and wish you luck in 2014. I know you will be right back in it again.
