I can't recall a Kraft appreciation thread so I figured WTF. I posted most of this in another thread but felt it was worthy of its own. I would like to take the time to thank Mr Kraft and his family for saving the franchise from moving to St. Louis, building a state of the art Stadium (with your own money), turning the Patriots into the model franchise in the NFL and becoming a leader among the owners. In the 12 completed seasons since you bought the team, the Pats have: 8 Playoff appearances 6 Division titles 4 AFC Championships (for Tune) 4 SB appearances 3 SB victories 9 winning seasons 1 8-8 season 2 losing seasons Missed the playoffs in consecutive years only once. Missed the Playoffs 4 times Compiled a 13-5 Playoff record 117-75 Regular season record Won 10 or more games in 7 seasons If we include what we know from this year you can add: 10 winning seasons Most likely: 9 Playoff appearances 7 Division titles Won 10 or more games in 8 seasons Statistically the Pats have done the following since you bought the team: Participated in 33% of the SB's Won 17% of all AFC playoff games played. Played in 23% of all AFC playoff games played Won 50% of the Division Titles Happy Holidays and thank you for being such a cheap bastard, Mr Kraft!
