    Hey guys and gals,

    Just saw this on Instagram and thought it’d make for an interesting discussion. Which decision (if any) would you make regarding the future of the NEP franchise? Oh, and just to make sure I haven’t left anyone out....

    Option (D)- RLKAG

    For those of you who may not be able to view the link, the options are:

    A) JMD takes over with a ton of draft picks and drafts a great QB.

    B) We get 5 more years of TB & BB, but no guarantee of a title.

    C) NE wins the SB this year, but TB, BB & JMD all leave NE after this season.

    That’s why it’s called hypothetical. Reading is fundamental; or so I thought.

    I'd take the ring. I'd love to have 5 more years of TB and BB but I'd have to take the sure thing and boost their legendary status into untouchable.

    If we get 5 years of Brady playing at, say, 85% of his 2017 level then option B.

    If he’s playing at Peyton 2015 level then I might say C, but most fans probably say A.

    5 more years of TB? Is he playing till he's 46 now?

    Anyway, I pick none of the above, plus Ray Lewis killed a guy. Or two.

    The “ton” of draft picks would be the extra 2s and 3s they already have plus a 1st rounder or more from the team who “trades” for Belichick to become their new coach.

    My choice is A. It’s the best choice for next season, the next 5 seasons and the next 10 seasons. 67 year old head coaches, especially one that insists on total control, have a shelf life just like 41 year old QBs do my friends whether you can accept it or not.

    C

    then I can retire as a superfan in peace and focus solely on fantasy. Never having to spend another dime on NFL gear, or tickets, or anything.

    Easy choice. (Especially because I think Brady will not be in NE after 2020 and perhaps not after 2019.)

    Option B = more rings.

    Only pessimistic doom and gloomers would choose Option C and their one little cheesy ring. :D

    Option A is there for the Trolls.

    B no brainer.

    I don't care about a perfect transition. I want every morsel to be extracted from this legendary brain trust.

    Don't trust McDaniels to lead as coach. This whole thing will fall apart once Belichick and Brady retire/leave
