Who are the pink hats?
I completely understand the Welker situation frustration.
People who think BB is a god who doesn't make mistakes are the ones that are misguided.
There are still a lot of domino's to fall, and maybe BB has a plan...but you can't assume that whatever BB is planning is necessarily the best possible plan.
Outside of Brady (who played a huge part of the championship teams) a significant chunk of the core of the team were Parcell's guys.
Belichick isn't a god, and imo, I think he dropped the ball with this move.
BB has given us Ten plus years of reason to believe in what he is doing.
Here's my beef. Going 8 years without a Super Bowl. We have one of the best QB's of all time. We've played in a weak division for basically all this time.
I think Brady has covered up for a lot of BB's short comings. A great QB can beat a bad team, you need a great team to beat another great team...and in the last two years, the Patriots have not been able to beat those "great" teams.
Some (not all) of the most memorable championship players were Parcells guys (Bruschi, McGinest, Law, Brown, Milloy)
I don't know what your opinion is, but a lot of people felt Dungy and Caldwell were chumps who were lucky enough to coach P Manning. They pretty much won 12 games a season. So by those fans, it can be pretty easy to win 12 games a season if you have an all time great at QB.
The year he coached without Brady, they lost to pretty much all the playoff teams they played in a weak AFC conference...a year after blowing out most of the teams...with Brady
