    Wow I thibk I remember back to when he was first drafted, a relative of his or something came on here and posted saying his old truck was for sale or something?

    long time ago memory is foggy but I don’t think I’m making this up

    Great run but I honestly had to reassure myself at least once before he kicked a FG. Once that trust goes away, it's hard to comeback

    The 4th?!? round...the Fourth Feckin Round?!?...The FIRST PICK of the FOURTH FECKIN ROUND?!?

    There are ZERO place-kickers in this year's draft worthy of a 4th-round selection...or a 5th-round selection... never mind the FIRST FECKIN PICK in that round...

    4th-round picks are for Real Football Players.

    Good Lord.

    You mean the guy with 8 Superbowl rings, the guy who lead this team out of a dark abyss to the light, the guy who made all my waiting for a decent run worth every minute of it..

    Always find it interesting the amount of vitriol for Mr. Kraft and BB that is usually displayed on this board.. it borders on humorous, maybe you had to enjoy the follies of the early 90's to fully appreciate the chaos that existed for the team who played at Schaefer Stadium. Many fans never enjoyed the football wisdom and savvy of Victor Kiam.

    Then there was the chaos that usually occurred during the 70's & 80's.. be thankful for what has happened in the past 20 years..

    It's the end of an era. Gostkowski has been a great servant to the team but he really did look cooked last year and we had months of replacement kickers. I expect BB to address this position through the draft. Thank you for your service and the memories.

    Dude, Belichick was 5-13 until Brady took over. Brady, not Belichick is "the guy who lead this team out of a dark abyss to the light, the guy who made all my waiting for a decent run worth every minute of it.."

    Noting that is not spewing vitriol towards Kraft or BB.

    I think the handling of the Welker thing prior to the Jets disaster on 1/16/11 belongs on the list of BB mistakes.

    In his defense, it's REALLY hard as a head coach to gauge the psyche of a team at any time. There's too much going on, too much detail and responsibility to know. He has had success imposing inspirational, motivating bulletin board material.

    His successes outnumber the boners.

    A loss of one game (Welker benching) is why the Patriots were a dynasty for 20 years.

    My hand started cramping from scrolling through that post. It's tough to get old. :(

    I liked SG more than AV. SG was longer and more accurate. There can't be any team better at K. And to top it off we had Robbie Gould and would have kept him if not for AV.

    GOAT kicking.

    GOAT QB.

    GOAT TE.

    GOAT HC.

    GOATs up the ying yang.

    Someone pinch me. Did all of those 20 years really happen?

    It's not vitriol but it is throwing some shade.

    Other than a few injury based moments here and there we've really only had 2 starting QBs and 2 starting Ks since 1994.

    That's truly insane.

    I don't think there are many fans here who are boasting at all. I think most of us know that the Pats could be in for a rough year. Then again, they do have BB at the helm and a pretty good defense.

    As for Rodgers, I'm not as much of a fan. He should have had a better career by now and his lack of comebacks against decent teams hurts him.

    No, it's not. It's acknowledging the truth of the situation. It doesn't mean that BB isn't a great coach. It doesn't mean that Kraft didn't do a good job as the owner helping get everything in place. It just means that the key cog in the machine was Brady. He was the switch flipper. He was the light bringer. From 5-11 and 0-2 to 11-3 and a SB run.


    And that should be easy to see for even the willfully blind.
