[QUOTE]In Response to Re: to all the BB GM naysayers : Yup, being on top of the Division (6x) and Conference (2x) in that period, really sucks. I say, fire the whole team and start over. I wonder how many here apply such measurables to their own careers?

I think 6 division championships and two conference championships in seven years is a pretty good accomplishment, but you cannot compare sports to other careers. Things are not measured the same. The second place teams is all but forgotten, while third and fourth best teams are completely forgotten each year.
In that span (2005-2011) which is more impressive:
6x Division Champion, 2x Conference Champion, 0x Super Bowl Champion
5x Division Champion, 2x Conference Champion, 1x Super Bowl Champion
4x Division Champion, 2x Conference Champion, 2x Super Bowl Champion
5x Division Champion, 3x Conference Champion, 2x Super Bowl Champion
The other three teams are the Colts, Giants and Steelers respectively.
My point is that the Patriots have not been dominating the NFL lately the way a lot of Patriots fan seem to think. If feel like arguments that rely on the run from 2001-2004 are becoming stale and irrelevant to the current team.
