    Am I the only one who thinks that all this loading up and mega signing is to make one more run at the superbowl.....I would put money on the fact that if we win a superbowl this year or next year BB will retire and the end of the dynasty will have come.

    If so Ill toast the dynasty with any one of youz guyz (gotta put the jersey touch on this thread)

    (A) The Patriots don't make "runs" at Super Bowls. They consistently compete for championships.

    (B) The Dyansty will not be over.

    I'd say Belichick is here 5 or less years now until he's done. So yes, we are loading this team up for the next few years to win as many championships as possible.

    We did the same thing after the 2002 season, and continued the dynasty. I think you've bought into all the rhetoric concerning the Pats after the Branch incident =) Just because we didn't sign any big FA the last few years doesn't mean that we think doing so is evil.

    I have the same feeling, the reason we sign so many Free agents is because it's BB's last year.

    If the pats win the SB this year and BB retires, why would the dynasty end? I'm sure the Pats would replace BB from within, maybe one of his apprentices?

    The pats are relatively young at key positions and have locked down a number of key players for years to come. I think losing BB is a loss, but you don't see him complete a pass, or make a tackle, its the players. We have a good group of guys here and I believe they can be competitive even without BB.

    No-none of the guys we're signing are old. Look at our roster. Most guys are in their primes or are just getting there but yeah I don't want to cripple the cap for future years either

    Overreact much? Its not like Belichick and Pioli are trading away future draft picks and signing any serviceable player to long-term, cap busting deals. They've just made a few bold moves that have greatly improved the team. Where is the harm in that?

    As much as I would like to agree with Pats 1 and this FA is more due to Kraft being pissed off about the AFCCG than anything else, there is a sense that after this "run" of 2-3 more seasons with the "new" Pats, BB/SP/TB will all retire with 4-6 rings, a decade of dominance, one, perhaps two undefeated seasons, and the title of best dynasty of all time.:D :(

    Oh, oh, what happens next????:confused: :(

    Does anybody have a theory as to what BB would like to do OTHER than coach?

    Become a fashion model, perhaps?

    His father coached for the fun of it into the last year of his life, well into his 80s. What would BB do EXCEPT coach?

    You're reading into this WAAAAY too much.

    Pioli and Belichick decided the market and their cap situation was ripe this year for a free agent plunge. That's all.

    BB has continuosly stated that he feels rewarded by sustained excellence. He'll stick around.

    So to continue my thoughts...What comes next, in the year 2011 is that they all have retired, we have a great new coach and GM, and the coach of the year now has the Belichick trophy for the winner! 5 years later, Canton is gonna get very Patriotic!!!

    Half the post season games we won during the SB runs were by smoke and mirrors from BB and our old coordinators schemes, so anyone who thinks loosing BB wouldnt end the dynasty should get their head examined

    My Jest troll senses are tingling...

    (1) You have proclaimed the end of the Pats' dynasty (in classic troll fashion)

    (2) You have tried to pretend you are a Patriots fan (in classic troll fashion)

    (3) You have ever so subtly proclaimed the genius of Eric Mangini (in classic troll fashion)

    BB understands that situations like what we have in New England don't last forever.

    Last year we were a single player away from a fourth superbowl. You either use opportunity or lose it. Last year we lost it

    I think he's commited to using our long term salary cap surplus (because that's what we have) over the next five years, to bring home as many super bowl victories as possible.

    He's smart enough to know that no one can predict that far into the future, so he might as well spend it now.

    I think the Pats are spending to get better and that's a good thing. They are simply doing what they do every year, try to win the trophy. If BB and the Pats win the championship this year I don't think he will retire. I think he will want to coach out at least the decade and try to win as many trophies as possible to seal his legacy. If we can win 2 or 3 more championships by the end of 2010 I think the Pats will be regarded as one of the greatest dynasties of all time and that inevitably coach of the year award will be named the Belichick award (after he retires that is, who the heck wins their own award?).

    what the hell is a jest troll.........you are one of those morbidly obese (just to save you a trip to the dictionary, obese means "fat") pimple ridden world of warcraft losers who's only outlet to feeling dominant is to strain that miniscule brain of yours to come up with snide remarks right?

    Say it with me now......worst thread EVER!!
