The football team the New England Patriots, are a franchise within the NFL that is a great story throughout all sports, for years before the current owner in Bob Kraft, this team had some great players that played wearing the logo of the Patriot, but unfortunately they didn’t make the playoffs all that often, then as things happen like throughout the history of the real Patriots that helped build America into the power house it is now, the old owner in Billy Sullivan sold the team to Bob Kraft and now the rest is history before our eyes.
When Bob Kraft brought in Bill Parcells to build this team to a winning organization, he did just that even making the Superbowl, but unfortunately lost to the Green Bay Packers, then lightening struck, Parcells was let go and the Patriots hired Bill Belichek and the rest is still history before our eyes.
Bill Belichek has transformed these New England Patriots into a power house throughout the NFL and turned around the name of the team, back into what being a true Patriot really means, what he has done in the draft and with free agency goes without saying, some may not like a lot of what Belichek has done, but I question them and challenge them to build a better team than he has built, Bill has brought to this team a kind of swag that you don’t really see in a coach, his press conferences from a fan point of view are funny stuff, but from a sports media point of view…… let’s just say “we are on to the next game”, he has his way about him, but what he truly is from a football point of view……a Genius.
Then you have Tom Brady and his journey to where he is now, you simply can not write a script for a movie, any better then Tom’s career as a Quarterback in the NFL, drafted by the Patriots so far down off the radar, nobody really knew who he was and to take over for Drew Bledsoe the way he did, then never looking back and always looking into the future, to be better and stronger on his journey through football, this goes to show the character of Tom Brady, it also shows that he is very competitive and wants to win every game he steps onto the field, Tom Brady and Bill Belichek will be in the football hall of fame and beside each other as the best Quarterback/Coaching tandem in the history of the NFL, we here in New England are witnessing history before our eyes, so sit back and enjoy the ride, as we have become spoiled by their winning and one day it will all be very different.
Now with the New England Patriots about to play in their 4th straight Conference Championship, lets not forget where the Patriots used to be in the days of Billy Sullivan, then we can appreciate this title game even more so and hopefully see them earn a trip to yet another Superbowl, like Belichek always says ” one game at a time, one play at a time”, which happens to be so similar to how life is, ” one day at a time along our journey”, another thing the Patriots are doing this year and the theme of their season, ” just do your job” which means every player on the team has his own special quality that he brings to the team and when the whole team does what each of them do best, the whole team wins plus not to mention all the hard work in practice, which leads to good execution on game day, practice, moderation, not getting a head of yourself all these are the ways of the Patriots and they also speak loudly in our everyday lives as well, in a retro sort of speaking, if you look at sports in the right way, you can see that to be successful in life, it has very much the same qualities as being successful in what ever sport you may play or view, so as we get ready to watch yet another conference championship game by the New England Patriots, let us all wish them good luck and may they continue on the journey this season to the Superbowl and another Lombardi trophy for all to enjoy. OOPS!!!! one game at a time sorry……………..
