It is easy to understand why they would have the desire to move on from him. It is important to understand that when you think “it would be hard to imagine a better person”, do not forget that it was only this season which makes this one so interesting. I believe that the Patriots are on the cusp of something great. To put it into perspective, consider the following. When Tom Brady entered the league, in the aftermath of thedeflategate scandal, the teams with the two best records in the NFL were the Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots. Over the course of two seasons, which ended over the past two weeks, that’s four other “great” teams. The Packers went 25-5 and lost to the Browns in the playoffs and the Patriots went 25-9, lost to the Bengals in the regular season and won the AFC Championship game without him. If a new Tom Brady enters the league and wins a championship and earns a contract from the Patriots, over the course of this season, all of those teams with the teams with the best records in the NFL will be at least in a three way tie for the number of years they’ve been in the top three spots. I don’t expect that to be four years because the NFL would make its decisions when the Super Bowl starts in January. The Patriots have an edge over other teams in this battle because they have always been great over the course of their history and the Seahawks have a history of “good” over the course of their history. The Patriots are also a division champion. There isn’t much else that I am pointing out here except that I believe that there are a lot of Patriots fans reading this who don’t seem to be in denial of everything that happened in 2013.
The Seahawks and Patriots are the only two NFL teams that haven’t won the Super Bowl since 1997.
I believe that there are a lot of Saints fans reading this who aren’t sure if or how the 2012 season ended, as well as some Seahawks fans who would like to wait and see what happens once the Super Bowl starts next January before they call for change elsewhere in the NFL.
The 49ers are tied for 8th in the NFC with the Packers and the Patriots are tied for 9th in the AFC with the Packers and the Redskins are tied for 14th in the AFC with the Patriots and the Packers are tied for 8th in the NFC with the 49ers and the Patriots.
