    The big difference is that unlike the Cowboys, New England is just getting started.

    I agree, BB is locked up long term and Brady has at least 5 more years that he will be in his prime and New England is now the premier spot for free agents to sign. Sky is the limit

    Not if the Colts have anything to say about it. Plus your franchise doesnt take care of one of your premier players on D that is Samuel so how can that make FAs willing to come to your franchise as opposed to the Colts?

    Yeah free agents like Adalius Thomas ignored the Patriots because they didn't sign Samuel to a long term contract :rolleyes:

    That's correct... by their third season after their final Super Bowl, they had a losing record, and proceeded to post losing records in 5 more of the following 8 seasons.
