    Chicken and egg argument here. I don't think BB is as good without Brady. I don't think Brady is as good without BB. It's gotta be 50/50.

    Both have picked up the slack for the other in critical games. For instance, I don't think Brady has the opportunity to lead a game winning drive in SB 36 if BB isn't coach. The Rams likely win in a landslide. I also don't think the Pats win SB 38 without Brady. The defense was atrocious in the 2nd half.

    SB 49 was a case where they helped each other out. Seattle went up 24-14 after Bradys pick led to a Baldwin TD. From that point on, the defense allowed nothing. I think Seattle went three and out three straight drives before the fluke catch. Then Butler happened. But I don't think there's many other QB's in history that could shred an all time great defense the way Brady did in that 4th quarter. It was the first time in like three years the LOB blew a 10 point lead headed into the 4th quarter. Essentially, Belichick's defense had to ball out in order to give Brady the chance to play hero.

    In a nutshell, I pick both.

    It's a chicken-egg thing, but I think if Belichick doesn't luck into Brady the Pats don't win SB36 and Belichick isn't set up with total power to remake the Patriots in his image. Kraft didn't give Carroll or even Parcells a total blank check like Belichick got after winning that title, and 2001 vintage Bledsoe was not taking that team to a Super Bowl victory.

    Letting Curtis Martin walk. Had he stayed, the Pats would’ve been competitive enough for Carroll to survive a few more years. BB may have been a Head Coach elsewhere and picked Brady.

    I do think they needed to update their uniforms when they introduced the Flying Elvis” and now they need to do another update.

    Here's a better question. Let's say Brady was taken by another team in 2000 and Belichick was left with Bledsoe for another season. Does Bill turn it around, or does another 8-8 or 7-9 season coming off a 5-11 year see him get fired? Or does Kraft even let Belichick sit Bledsoe before it reached that point? He really didn't have a choice when Brady went on that run, so the decision was more or less made for him. If Bledsoe is just here without someone like Brady, would Kraft be willing to make that decision and let Belichick trade/cut him? It's something I've wondered at times...but winning it all made it an easy decision and took the pressure off of Kraft from that standpoint.

    Next question, I wonder which quarterback they would have potentially taken and judging by how well they've developed them here, I wonder what type of team this would have been. Dominant? Hard to say, but I wonder if they're still the same perennial contender they've been and a pesky one in the postseason. I'm at work so I don't have the ability to look at who came out of the draft from 2001-2003 (if Kraft gave him 2-3 more years to turn things around). But it's sort of a more interesting discussion if we want to turn this thread in that direction.
