I think one of the things that seperates New England from alot of other teams in the NFL and why they win so much is the strength of the organisation. It is built on a solid foundation, has a clear objective and is focused on its goal. You never hear anyone in from the Patriots (player, coach, executive) say anything negative about any team, franchise or player. All they want to talk about is there next game. One of the things your probably told when you join the organisation is never say anything about anyone or anything that is negative to the media. They completely respect everyone, and thats the way it should be done. I use to think that the Patriots do not make negative comments because they do not want to fall to the level of organisations that do. I feel that they are so focused on each game that it does not enter there mind to make a negative comment. I am sure this is something that all Patriots have learnt. It is this focus that makes them win so much. Having individuals like this is what causes success. Corporations pay millions of dollars trying to find individuals like this, they consider themselves lucky to have even one person like this. The Patriots have 3 individuals like this (A perfect storm took place in New England when these 3 met). Alot of teams do not even have one player like this. If everyteam in the NFL was a publicaly traded stock the patriots would be the most valuable security.
