I mean, how could an organization lead by this guy not win?
If the Pats, with potentially a dozen draft choices this April, hit on a bunch of them, nine Lombardis are a possibility.
Wentz can’t finish a season. Mahomes will regress and I think their D is super suspect. Brees was unimpressive vs LAR and was coming off a few seasons that didn’t go well. Luck is a playoff INT machine.
Wilson is a SB champ who was one crazy play away from another. Ben has two titles and despite their disfunction, Pitt is full of talent. In their case, I’d be betting on Pitt DESPITE Tomlin.
The federal government will intervene and declare that the exclusion of other cetaceans violates the canons of diversity. The New England Orcas will win the CetaceanBowl, coached by Belichick aboard his boat, Nine Rings.
If this was done the same time last year many would have picked the jaguars and Vikings. A lot changes from year to year
When I was in High School, the Wrestling team I participated in was stacked my junior year.
We were heavily favored to win our league when I was senior however injuries took their toll.
The coach hung a sign in the locker room stating "Intensity is everything in wrestling".
Someone took a red pen the the sign:
"̶I̶n̶t̶e̶n̶s̶i̶t̶y̶ ̶i̶s̶ everything in wrestling"
So much can happen to a team due to retirements, injuries, free agents, and draft picks.
That article was a joke.
Realistically, if we assume Brady retires after 3 more seasons (45 then), I'll say that it's Patriots, Chiefs, Patriots.
The writers need to have the HOF selection process taken away from them. I know everybody has a different set of criteria but Russ Grimm? They're going to let all these volume WRs in then you should let Henry Ellard in who did it in a different era when those yards were harder to come by, and I don't think he belongs in. Jerome Bettis, not a HOFer. Curtis Martin not a HOF. Shouldn't Harold Jackson and Stanley Morgan get in by this criteria? Bettis didn't average 4/YPC and didn't have 100 TDs. Martin averaged exactly 4/ypc and didn't have 100 TDs. Martin was decent in the postseason. Bettis 3.4/ypc.
I like Dawkins and to a lesser extent Lynch to get in but Rodney doesn't get a sniff when he has better regular season numbers minus forced fumbles where you have to tip your cap to Dawkins and he blows they both away in the postseason. Also the first player ever with 30 sacks and 30 interceptions later joined by Ray Lewis.
agreed. I'm also assuming he will retire after 2021 season. So if the trend continues the Pats will get to 1 or 2 SBs in those 3 years and winning 1. However I think we win 2 because 1. being a homer and 2. because of the recent trend making 4 SBs in the last 5 years and winning 3.
A lot comes down to the draft this year. If Patriots have a good draft especially at receiver and TE I don't see why not...
The publication date says Feb 8, 2019, but:
"I could see Tom Brady winning one more before his arm deteriorates to the extent that nobody is afraid of his deep ball (Note: I don't want to rule out Brady failing to win another before retirement, and Belichick pulling off a title in 2023 with, say, Jacoby Brissett or Jimmy Garoppolo). "
Exactly. Every year I see the fan base of the team that wins the Super Bowl develop unrealistic expectations (and somewhat surprised as to what I am reading from Pats fans in this thread). Last year the Giggles fans said they were going to be a dynasty and look what happened. In 2016 the Broncos fans said they would win another super bowl with that great defense even if you bring someone off the street to play QB. Seattle fans thought dynasty too. The difference with us is we ARE a dynasty. But it's unrealistic to think that we can win 3 out of the next 5 Super Bowls. Too many unknowns like Brady's health, Gronk's potential retirement, etc. We should know by know that it is a year-to-year league. As a fan, I always say stay humble and enjoy what you got. Whatever tomorrow brings is what it brings.
There is zero chance Pittsburgh will win another Super Bowl in the next few years. Roethlisburger last won a title 10 years ago and hasn't exactly gotten better.
This is an example of excellent Forum posting. You gently correct a fellow poster about a very painful issue to all of us, and manage to do so without actually using the most painful language. Thank you, sir.
With their cap problems, and the full exposure of the coach and QB in the SB, the Rams will take a step back for a couple of years. For Goff to gain the field general skills, and confidence, to take a team through a SB victory is not something to bet on.
Allow me to cut through a layer or two of cluttered argument to the bedrock of the N.E. case.

We win ALL the freakin TIME
We'll tell you when we're done
Yea I agree & honestly I care less & less every year. Like you said you wait long enough & you'll get in.
There should be no limit on the players or coaches. Maybe some years you have 10 guys another you have 0.
