Many people question how the Patriots can continue their decade of success without ever missing a beat. Many say it is due to Tom Brady, many say it is due to Bill Belichick. Both are instrumental to the success as each provides the other with what it needs to be successful.
Despite huge losses on both sides of the ball this year, the Patriots are again back in the AFC Championship game with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. The team built this year is more unique than any of it’s Patriot predecessors. With an incredible 7 UDFAs set to start on Sunday, this team was truly built from scratch, with some Tom Brady and Bill Belichick sprinkled on top
In addition, most of this team is built on the Patriots own scouting and development, 13 of the 22 starters on Sunday will have started their NFL Careers with the Patriots. A few others (Sealver SIliga and Chris Jones) started their NFL careers in 2013, with other teams. After they were cut, as we have seen so many times before, BB scooped them up and now they are living out the NFL dream.
Not exactly sure what all this info means, but nonetheless it is impressive and interesting to see how many players were inappropriately assessed in the draft process by the so called experts.
