[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Bill Belichick: COACH OF THE YEAR! : And yet, over 40 years they haven't used that excuse as much as you have in 3 weeks.

It's not an excuse. It's reality. Not every team is replacing 3-5 Pro Bowl or HOF caliber players.
From 2008 and into 2009, NE replaced Asante Samuel, Rodney Harrison, Richard Seymour, Tedy Bruschi and Mike Vrabel.
Read those names again.
This is the equivalent if the Jets needing to replace Revis, Leonhard, Ellis/your best DE, David Harris and Calvin Pace/OLB.
Do you honestly think the Jets would win 10 games next year if they didn't have those players I just listed?
This doesn;t even count complementary players who were in the system like Ellis Hobbs or an aging Junior Seau.
Of course NE was rebuilding trying to bring in a new base towards making SB runs again.
Only you would deny this because you need to in order to keep your delusions of grandeur alive.
Your window closed for 2 reasons:
1.The Jets just peaked.
2. NE is now starting to peak.
See, when the Pats lose, I say "they weren't good enough".
When your team essentially blows or is a paper tiger for 40 years you think talk and mirages means it will change.
Huge differrence between educated, realistic fans and yourself.
