In response to BabeParilli's comment:
Your argument is flawed. Obviously when a team wins a super bowl they are doing something right but looking at the Giants and Steelers struggling so badly right now shows their way isn't better. The Patriots put together a super bowl contending team most every year. Those other teams have not obviously done better.
I'll tell you what, being a "contender" every year takes second place to winning it all every three years and not making the playoffs the other two years...... anyday, anytime.
The only reason we are even a contender is Brady QBing and BB's coaching anyway.
