    Chuch Fairbanks passed away

    No one did more to turn the Pats into a real football team than Chuck Fairbanks . . . he passed away today at age 79 from cancer.  In his first draft as the coach selected: John Hannah, Sam Cunningham, Ray Hamilton and Darryl Stingley . . . have we every have a better draft? 

     

    Fairbanks and defensive coordinator Hank Bullough changed NFL defenses when they installed a new system (today known as the Fairbans-Bullough 3-4, or the 3–4 two-gap system).
