In the Starting Line-Up
Im Shocked, Shocked.
Not a huge brag. They are competing w the likes of Cleveland, Indy, NYJ, ATL, Raiders, Jax, Texans... all total pieces of feces.Yup. We can make fun of the Krafts all we want. Still the best owners in the game.
Yes. That’s their problem. Hahaha. They had KC and they blew it. They’ve squandered years of « having more talent than most teams ».Funny thing is, if you read the Texans' boards, the one thing that they all agree with regarding filling the vacancies is no more fishing for replacements from the Patriots' pond.

No, but not having good ones makes winning more difficult unless you also have a 1st-ballot HOF QB who can make chicken salad out of them.2001 Brown, Patten, Wiggins

Does WR / Receiving TE excellence guarantee SB success ?
Except there is some teeth to this one because the Patriots filed tampering charges against the Texans last season. Caserio can hit the bricks for all I care. BB picks the groceries at the end of the day anyway.Every time a coach or front office person is rumored to leave, the world is coming to an end. And it NEVER happens. I believe Dante Scarnecchia is a legitimate HOF candidate. Yet, the offensive line this season, under some adverse conditions, has been very good, in my mind.
To be fair, that's because the Patriots saw what happened the first time and decided to have assistants (Popovich and Bricillo) to train under him.Every time a coach or front office person is rumored to leave, the world is coming to an end. And it NEVER happens. I believe Dante Scarnecchia is a legitimate HOF candidate. Yet, the offensive line this season, under some adverse conditions, has been very good, in my mind.
Googs tried to change the system, too. Bricillo and Popovich are committed to maintaining Scar's system, too. (And I think he might still be helping them grocery shop, so to speak.)Agree with your first sentences but maybe Scar was SO good that his legacy is strong enough momentum for a couple seasons.
Patriot culture, absent a total future revolution, will always be value to team based good fiscal cap management. Talent misjudgement aside.
Draft mismanagement takes a few years to become obvious. This homer believes we could use some serious upgrade in draft assessment, particularly with WRs
But we are judging personnel decision made with the GOAT on the roster. Surely had he not been here they wouldn’t have taken the same approach to the position that goes hand in handNo, but not having good ones makes winning more difficult unless you also have a 1st-ballot HOF QB who can make chicken salad out of them.
I asked that question too and got a non-answer saying he's better than Irsay and Snyder.
So we ask again: who are the top 5 owners in the league and why do you say Kraft is the best?
You say that but what owner would you prefer over Kraft? You mentioned Khan, but he at least has the luxury for money not to be an issue. Spanos is a cheap prick. York let the players outrun the coach. Jerry needs to be in control. Green Bay has no owners. The Saints owners have the Church scandal. Mara hid his kickers spousal abuse and also got way too sentimental with Eli. Detroit has a history of pissing off generational talent.Not a huge brag. They are competing w the likes of Cleveland, Indy, NYJ, ATL, Raiders, Jax, Texans... all total pieces of feces.
I don’t have a lot of respect for Kraft. It mostly stems from his addiction to being in the in-crowd (the 32, celebs, baby face gfs) and his fake good guy persona. I might be in the minority.
He is better than Irsay. Weeeeeeeeeee.
