If Bill Belichick had been hired by a different team in 2000, AND drafted Tom Brady, how many of the other 31 teams would have won 3 SBs by now, with just those 2 additions/changes? I think Philly, Pitt, Denver, Baltimore (remember where they were in 2000, and what they lack), Tennessee, the Giants (they were in a SB in 2000) Tampa, Oakland (they were a good team at that point) are all reasonable guesses. There are others that would have been needed to be elevated, but how many teams were further back than what BB took over? From the 1999 team, the only players I can think of (and I'll miss a few) that were key to more than 1 of the titles were Law, McGinest, Bruschi, Brown, Vinatieri. (Again I may have missed someone) I find it incredilble that the resources that BB inherited to go on and win 3 and counting SBs were probably less than any of the other teams in existence in the NFL at the time. Oh, and he inherited cap problems too. Can you name any teams that had fewer good players as of 1/1/00 that were still around by 1/1/05?
