In response to Uncle Rico's comment:
Interesting thread. Sadly I got a good laugh out of it.
Sure opens your eyes. It's been a long while since winning a SB, and some people here seem to think that BB has done just fine in drafting because they are good every season and recently went to another SB.
We have one of the best QB's ever leading this team every year. Don't you think Brady has been the reason they are so good year in and year out regardless of the talent brought in? Maybe Belichick is the one getting to much credit for being good every season regardless of the draft blunders he has made. Maybe more credit for being good every year should go to our QB, and less to Bill.
When it comes to the important games Brady can't do it all and this team just doesn't have enough talent to win it all. And that is the bottom line.
One important note has to be made whenever an assessment of BB's drafting is considered. Unlike others, he has had the luxury of not having to expend resources for a franchise QB for over a decade. That's a huge advantage over let's say the rest of the AFC East for example.
