7-9 is not good. lol I mean they went 12-4 the year before. 90 percent of the opt outs didnt even make this team. You mean MVP Cam? I guess everyone thinks he sucks now that he is gone, that seems to be the way with some fans.
I thought he sucked when we signed him. I was holding out hope for Stidham.

Chung, Cannon. And Hightower were not inconsequential opt outs.

Willed a team that Vegas projected to win 9+ games…to 7-9? How does one will a team to less wins than expected?

When was the 9+ game win projection made by Vegas? Did it account for the Hightower, Chung, and Cannon opt-outs? Did it account for Edelman missing 90% of the season?

I don’t recall the opt-out timeline, but the Edelman injury was a considerable blow - even as a walking corpse during the 2020 season, he really helped Cam when he was out there.

2nd Team Getting Their First Start
You're laughing, but the Patriots got Cam to his best completion percentage in his career with only one threat at receiver and 0 tight ends.
It was literally his worst year. lol As I said...a team who had not had a losing record in 19 years, and 7-9 is amazing

I mean there was flat out some dredful things on offense for awhile. That 2006 receiving corp might have been the worst I have ever seen. First round draft pick backs were fizzle. We could not draft a player in the second round that would not bust out. Tavon Wilson? Remember that prize? 33rd overall pick, and he was projected as a 7th and guess what, he played like a 7th. Who was the DT they drafted in the first round that had no acl's left? Ras-I?
Ras I Dowling was a CB and the Pats had the 1st pick in the 2nd round of the draft. Keep in mind, they had all night to think about this pick getting a break from the first round the night prior and they took a guy with torn ACL’s. This was the type of pick the Raiders are taking now.

When you look back at their playoff loses until 2014, you can point to an area of their roster that was weak, wasn’t addressed or the wrong guy was taken which eventually got exposed.

The fact is many draft picks that the Pats failed on were brushed to the side because they were still finding was to win in the regular with core players from prior years picking up the slack. However, they can only do so much and that’s why they eventually came to a halt in the playoffs.

Third String But Playing on Special Teams
To be fair, Arians is a clown. But, dude has a track record of being a pretty solid coach. Not sure why folks would think too negatively on him. He has led a team to a SB before Brady.

It still blows my mind that people thought Brady was going to FL to wither and die. That team was pretty damn stacked before he got that there. You add the GOAT QB and oh boy. A great player will always make the biggest difference on the field, but a great coach creates the culture and builds the team. So, it’s hard to say. If Brady was surrounded by **** talent in TB last year, I guarantee he wouldn’t have won the SB. Same with Bill, if he had his team stacked with talent right now, doubt Brady would’ve made much of a difference. Plenty of teams make it to the SB every year without him.
Btady went to a stacked team, and added AB, and Leonard Fournette. If BB went to coach the Chiefs and brought Chase Young and Gilmore, he would probably win a Super Bowl.

Huh? He never made it to the SB when he was with the Cardinals or when he was the temp coach of the Colts?

Yes that is why they have all those big buildings, knowing what is going on in the NFL. So they went from a 12 win team to a 2 win team? lol
They have big buildings because people are addicted to gambling and they make their money on the spread. It has nothing to do with their ability to predict the future
