Amazing what can be accomplished when no one worries about who gets the credit.
Taking a smaller base paycheck is only a part of it. When you are virtually guaranteed playoff games and the associated bonuses, the overall remuneration looks pretty good.
New England wins because they pick and insert role players like any good executive chooses his or her staff. First and foremost, they select personalities that they can fit into their systems. When a maverick like Moss is added to the mix, he quickly learns that if you are not part of the solution, you are a part of the problem and won't be there long. Guaranteed success is a might convincer.
When Brady leaves, or is replaced, his replacement will show a lot of the characteristics that currently make him a winner.
When I tried to handicap the Colts - Pats game this past weekend, I settled on the Pats, because you know that they will never beat themselves.

Right ON! Please advise the other sports journalists of their cynical ways. They do not bother to analyze the Patriots like you do. They love to critize, without backing up their criticism witout facts. And the facts , be damn.

Because people always have and always will hate a winner. From Football to countries, its human nature.
I am proud to be here in New England. We have an owner, a coach and players that want nothing short of a championship every year... Kudos!
