    This. The sadist in me wants to see BB work his ways without Brady. The sane side of me could do without a Brady departure.

    2001 doesn’t happen if they don’t bring in vrabel,Cox,pleasant, Asmith,patten, phifer, Compton, Edwards, Izzo

    In 2003, Harrison, Washington, Poole
    In 2004, Traylor, Dillon

    2002,2005,2006 is what happens when your free agent/ veterans acquisitions fail you

    2007, Moss, Welker, Stallworth, Thomas

    2009-2013 was a free agent drought and the result showed

    2014, Revis, Browner, Lafell
    2015, not much
    2016, Bennett, hogan, van Noy
    2017, cooks, Gilmore, guy, ... should have won
    2018, This team goes nowhere without Trent brown

    point being that success rested so much more on vet acquisition than rookie ones.....rookies work out good over time, but rarely make the big difference year 1 the way vets can

    can’t blame the team for not trying to bring wr last year, they all just crashed and burned

    This is a good way to look at it but we did sign free agents in the years that we lost, so those should be listed here too so we can compare the Super Bowl years to the rest.

    The Patriots, as every team, supplements the draft picks with free agency and trades. Giving a pass on poor draft classes because they signed free agents in a year they won the Super Bowl is just stupid.
