Greatness Personified………

” Greatness is within us all, but unfortunately only a few achieve true greatness”

 

Last nights Superbowl was an Epic event on so many levels, not too mention being one of the best Super bowls of my lifetime so far. Okay it is true I am a New England Patriot fan,  it is also true that I like many other true fans have gone through many seasons, with our beloved Pats only winning one game a year, so it is safe to say that, I am not the only one enjoying the ride for the last 17 seasons. With all the Hater’s hating on this team only shows what greatness brings and the New York Yankees back in their hay day, have also been through what the Patriots are going through now, which is where the nickname the ” Evil Empire” came from. What I say to all the Hater’s out there is, ” if you truly want to be a Champion, than step up to the plate and beat a true Champion”, with Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons almost did just that.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichek just solidified their greatness last night with this great come back win, some may say that the Falcons choked, but to the real football fan, this game was won a team that never gave up, no matter of how big the odds were as this game moved forward. This game was won by a team that never lost faith in their selves and their teammates, which kept hope alive for each and every one of them, when there is faith, you will always have hope and with these two, the confidence runs high throughout the entire team. Plus with the slogan of ” do your job”, the task at hand never really got too big for them to handle.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all also go through the good as well as the bad, with what I learned of Tom Brady’s Mom last night, I couldn’t stop my eyes from watering and to think she was at her first game watching her son……. the tears filled up my eyes and my heart became warm with love. with all the chemo she has been through, she was strong enough to go watch her son in person, which made this story so much bigger than the game of football itself. Tom Brady is more than just a football Quarterback, he is a Human, walking a path through this journey of life, just like all of us as well. The biggest difference between Tom Brady and most of us is, he never gives up, he never loses faith in himself and with this faith, never loses hope that he can achieve Greatness, plus as a Human and with all his Mom has been through, Tom Brady stays focused on the prize and the true prize isn’t each Championship ring he receives, the true prize is each chance he gets to spend good quality time with his Mom at her time of need. This was the story within the game, this is the story that drives Tom Brady to Greatness, this is a story and a message to the rest of us that, we to can achieve the same Greatness if we want it bad enough, we just have to stay focused on the true prize and not the prize surrounded by drama or false reality. We all walk a path through this journey of life and when we do it correctly, when we stay focused on the true prize and when we never give up, never lose faith, which brings us all the hope we need to move forward better and stronger, so we all can share our love within, with each other, as we then walk this journey in peace and happiness.

 

” True greatness is within us all, we just have to focus and never give up, so the greatness will shine over us all”

” Last nights Super bowl game was beyond a great game when you look deeply into the game”

” With Faith there will always be Hope and when you have them both, the confidence will drive you to never give up no matter of the odds”

 

 

The sun shines over the City of Chicago

With the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series last night and being seventy one years since they have even been on the big stage, plus not winning it for one hundred and eight years, this win is bigger than even the sport of baseball itself.

They say it was the curse of the Goat? I understand the whole story of a person bringing their pet Goat to the games, then being told not to bring the Goat anymore, but seriously, you think a Goat had to do with a team not winning a Championship in over a century? Same thing with the Great Babe Ruth and the trade that had him leaving the Boston Red Sox, to the New York Yankees, then the Red Sox not winning a World Series in Eighty six years? We all can believe what we want to, as we are all unique to each other with our own minds, but to make an excuse over a curse for not winning a Championship, I think we need look deeply into what we see, instead of making an excuse for everything around us.

The Fans of the Chicago Cubs is what this win is all about, as it was the Fans that were caught between the team and the Ownership of the team and being being deprived of what other teams and their Fans have accomplished. It is the Fan that shows up. pays a fee, so they can watch their team win, it is the Fan that roots very loudly for their favorite players of that team, but when the Owner’s don’t pay for the right players (for which the fan pays for), now the Fan has no one to root for. Yes your going to have those die hard Fans that no matter what, will still pay and root for a team, even if they don’t truly know of who they are rooting for. Instead you have the Owner’s becoming more greedy and taking advantage of the die hard Fan, just to line their pockets with more money, so they can live their plush exotic lifestyles.  When you don’t spend the money wisely and get the right player’s for the team and for the Fans who have been loyal to you, you will be the next Chicago Cubs or the Boston Red Sox.

When you want to model yourself after a good Owner, you need to look no further than Bob Kraft of the New England Patriots. He was a Fan of the team before he was an Owner and when he became Owner, he then put the best Management around him to build a great team. then through the Management they went out and got the right players that not only fit the Patriot way, but that would gel together and give the Fans what they have paid for, as they spend a lot of money to enjoy a game on any given Sunday. Now with the Patriots and the last fifteen years, you can clearly see what building a great team will do, as they win more than they lose and through winning, makes it fun to not only play the game, but makes it fun to pay and watch the game as well. Now with the winning part, you will also gain some Hater’s that will try to bring you down with words, this is just that words……..That show nothing but hatred of their own team, cause their Owner’s don’t step up to the plate and reward their Fans with a winning team.

Yes I do congratulate the Chicago Cubs and their player’s for winning the World series, but I congratulate their Fans even more, as now they can see what winning is all about and how winning and sports can affect a whole region for the better. Players like Jon Lester and David ross who are the older guys on the team and have won it all before, both came from the Red Sox, as did Theo Epstein the General Manager also, these are the guys that brought their experience and winning nature with them, as they infected the Fans around them throughout Chicago. Theo was the one that was brought in by the owner’s to give the Fans what they have needed for a long time and finally reward the Fans with this great victory and not just a victory, but a World Series Championship.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, some may get a chance to bask in the glory of this journey, while others simply just walk their path in the clouds of their judgments. Sports and our everyday lives when they come together in harmony, like last night in Chicago, helps us all have a look at the glory part of this journey and can help us all become better and stronger moving forward. True everything has to line up completely, but when they do it is the most beautiful part of this journey through life and is what makes us all walk with confidence, to be better and stronger along our paths throughout this journey.

 

” The Chicago Cubs have finally found success in the sport of baseball, as the Fans have finally been rewarded for their time and money spent”

” This team of the 2016 World series Champs the Cubs, will be forever enshrined in the history of the city of Chicago”

” They say winning cures all, but you can’t win without the right players around you”

” It takes a knack to get the right players for your team, as Theo Epstein and Bill Belichek have perfected that knack”

 

Karma will always avenge those with false acquisitions

It is sad that in today’s Society some will accuse others of things they have never done…… Why? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe it’s the fact that they lack their own self confidence and this is a way for them to try to move forward, while thinking they are better than you?  Could also mean that they have some hidden issues that they are afraid to address? I get the fact we all have our own issues that we deal with on a daily basis, but when we deal with issues that are brought on by others, that make false accusations, shows just how people in this Society need to grow up, accept the responsibility of their actions, learn how to be confident in their abilities and instead of burying their issues deep within their sole, fix what needs to be fixed, so we all can move forward in peace and happiness, along our paths of this journey through life.

Self Confidence is something we all learn as we grow along our paths of this journey, self confidence doesn’t just happen as it is achieved by the way we learn to be better at all we do along our paths. When we lack this Self Confidence shows that we have become lazy at earning and achieving it, we forget how to practice whatever we need to practice, so we can achieve the confidence to move forward, within this Society we have become so lazy, we forget what it is to work hard for what we want, to work hard to gain our self confidence and when we get that lazy we then get lost within the clouds of our own self doubt. When self doubt enter onto our paths, we then will do anything, in order to move forward, even if that means knocking others down, so we then what we think is moving ahead of them? This is only one thing and that is, the fact that we lack the confidence in ourselves to move forward correctly, so we then can achieve success correctly, while we all become happy everyday of our journey.

Self Confidence isn’t just in the ability of a person that plays a sport, it is within each of us along our paths of our journey, we strive for the confidence to be great at whatever we are doing, when we lack the confidence and we become lazy to work hard at achieving it, we then will do anything to try to achieve it, yes that means we will try to bring down others around us,  to make it seem like we are better, even though they do the job better than I? Simply look at some one like Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, he works very hard, not just at practice, but within the game of football he plays, with that hard work and practice, he has enough self confidence in his abilities, that he is by far the best Quarterback in football, those within the game that chats ill of him are simply jealous and are lazy to work as hard as Tom, not too mention the reason why some hate on him so much. Life along our paths of this journey will go so much smoother if we all work hard and practice everything we do, fix whatever issues we have, so we can achieve our self confidence and be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Self Confidence isn’t something that just comes to us, we have to work hard in achieving whatever we do to gain the Confidence”

” To bring another down is not the way for us to achieve success, or even move forward stronger and better”

” When we lack self confidence only means we have issues that we need to fix, so we can achieve the confidence to be better and stronger moving forward”

 

Good decision/bad decision…Hmm!!!

story idea

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The decision for Bill Belichek to kick away the ball at the start of overtime in last nights game, totally lies on him to do so and with his track record over the last fifteen years as the Coach of the New England Patriots, who are we to second guess his decision?

These pictures here are of two totally different paths, just like in life you also have different paths in sports to get to where you want to go. with the way the Offense played last night, compared to the way the defense played, clearly was part of the way Bill made his decision and all these theories we are hearing today, totally lie with the sports media, in trying to stir up as much drams as they can, so they can have a job to stir the drama with. Bill has brought four Championships here to new England over his tenure here, why should we stop trusting him now? Even Tom Brady came out and said the defense played better and he is the common denominator in all the different teams that Bill has coached here.

Talk about the media creating drama in sports, there was a report of Peyton Manning using HGH in the year 2011 after his neck surgery, which this report was later recanted when the reporter came out and said he was wrong, but now the seed of drama is planted and a very hard seed to dig up like the weeds in your green grass. Tom Brady came out in total defense of Peyton, as he is going through the same seed of drama with the deflate gate crap and can totally feel what Peyton is going through. This is, what is wrong with our Society of today, here you have two of the best Quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and there are some out there through jealousy, that will try to take them down, instead of sitting back and enjoying the show that they are putting on, year after year.

True we here in New England may not of liked the call to kick the ball away and pass up the chance to end the game with the offense scoring a touchdown like the Jets did, but when you sit back and review the game inside the game, you can see clearly why Bill made this decision, as the defense out played the offense in last nights game, it is just that it didn’t work out for the Patriots like in years past and with all the injuries to key players, shows that even the mighty Patriots fall Victim to the bug of an injury ridden season, like all other teams throughout the NFL.

With Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, the Patriots will always be in the talk of which teams will go to the Superbowl, but when key players around Tom fall to the injury bug, makes it that much harder to get there and that much harder a pill to swallow, for all the fans around New England to accept. The legacy of Bill and Tom here in New England is winning, but without all the key supporting players around them makes it that much harder to overcome adversity and keep the legacy of winning alive, I can say I was disappointed at the call also, but when I looked at the game inside the game, I clearly saw the reason why he made that call and totally respected Bill for making the call. #inbillwetrust Let us all here in New England always trust in Bill as his track record speaks for itself.

 

” just as in life, sports has different paths to follow to get to your true destination, hard work and determination shows you the true path to follow”

” Decisions are made everyday in life as well as sports, just that all the decisions made don’t always work in your favor”

” The New England Patriots with Bill and Tom will always be considered a favorite in the NFL, its the right supporting cast around them that keep them one of the favorites”

 

The road to a Championship

Forest

 

The road to any Championship within any sport you may play, are full of unknowns, trials and tribulation. Now I am a New England Patriot fan not just of long standing, but I am what is known as the hometown Homey, with that said…….. I have also lived through the toughest of times when these Patriots lost more than they win, now with these Patriots of the last fifteen years winning more than they lose, I have earned the success this team has given me.

Since Bill Belichek and Tom Brady took the reigns of this franchise, the New England Patriots have become one of the best teams within the history of the National Football League, not too mention the best Quarterback/Coach tandem as well. You had the Steeler’s of the 1970’s, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s that were great dynasties of their time and right now it is the New England Patriots who have become that great dynasty. Unfortunately with success comes the hater’s and in today’s World, the haters are ten times worse than of any other time. You also had the New York Yankees throughout their winning days within Baseball and became the most hated team within their sport, it happens because when a team gets so dominant and beats regularly other teams, it’s the fans that bring out this hatred of the team that their team can not beat.

” a team can only be a Champion when they step up to the plate and beat a true Champion with regularity”

I get the fact that the fans want to play and pick these fantasy teams to compete with each other, but these fantasy games have completely ruined all sports and completely took away any integrity that these sports had.  ” Let the real players stand up and play the game they love to play”. These fantasy teams that the fans pick, are just that fantasy. They are not real teams and from what I see all the other owner’s throughout the NFL, want these fantasy teams to make it look like their teams are doing okay? Roger Goodell the Commissioner of the NFL, is in power from the board of directors of the league and who are these directors? All the owners of all 32 teams in the NFL. When it comes to the New England Patriots, all the other Owners are the ones that have hated on this team the most, simply because they have made their teams look completely silly throughout all that watch the NFL. What I say to these Owners is, time to step up to the plate and beat a real Champion (fair and square) that the Patriots have become, so your teams can have a share of what being a Champion truly feels like.

It is not about the Patriots laying down so other teams can catch up to the curve, it is all about the other teams of the NFL catching up to the Patriots on the field fair and square. These Patriots throughout their history in the NFL have seen times where they lose more than they win, they didn’t whine and cry like the teams of today, no!! They just stepped up to the plate and with much hard work, became one of the best Franchises in the history of the NFL, it’s time the other teams follow the path of these Patriots, so maybe one day they to can become a True Champion.

” A True Champion doesn’t just happen, first there comes dedication, hard work and perseverance”

” instead of whining and crying and creating hate of a team, step up to the plate to beat a true champion and become the champion”

” Hard work is what defines Tom Brady and the number one reason why he has been so good for so long”

 

” The keeping up with the Jones”…

Waterfall

 

Who are the Jones? And why do we need to keep up with them?

Who knows when or even why this saying has been around so long? All this saying does is turn each of us against each other and stops us from truly being who we really are. Just like the saying of ” having the American dream”, we all think we know what this is for example, big house, white picket fence, two cars with garages, wife/husband, children, wealth and our own piece of the pie. Unfortunately throughout this Society of today, this American dream has caused us to step on each others shoe shine, to the point no matter what we do, nothing shines around us anymore. We all have our issues and our struggles throughout this journey of life, we all want the American dream and keep up with the Jones part of the pie, but unfortunately we have all gone the wrong way and find ourselves exerting all our energy at swimming up the stream of the waterfall, instead of making it easy and simply flowing as the current down this stream within this picture.

It is okay for some good fun and competition between us, but when this good fun and competition turns to ugliness, like we see around us today, you think we need to truly change and look deeply into everything that is around us? Competition between two Sports Teams is part of the game and the magic word is “game”. We as Individuals who watch these teams, have taken this competition to an all new level, a level that has turned us all against each other, cause we don’t see it as a game anymore, we see the friendly competition between two Teams and have turned this competition into, an ugly competition that has forced us to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, without truly being who we really are.

We all have a purpose in life, we all set our goals so we can find what our purpose truly is. I understand we all have our issues and struggles along our paths, but when we don’t address and fix these issues, the struggles will never end and we will never find out what our true purpose really is. Life is a journey that we all walk along a path, the journey may be the same, as the path and the purpose are all different to each of us, not everybody has to keep up with the Jones to achieve true happiness, as well as not everybody will achieve the American dream for true happiness also, true happiness comes from each of us, addressing the issues and fixing them, so we all can find our purpose and walk our paths in peace, with true happiness along this journey of life.

 

” The journey through life may be the same, but the path and the purpose is much different to each one of us”

” The struggles and issues of life may have us swimming up stream into the waterfall, but addressing the issues and fixing the struggles will have us swim down stream, making our paths more peaceful with happiness”

” good competition between us is okay, but when it turns ugly is when we have to change the game, to make the competition fun again”

 

Is it a scandal, or maybe just jealousy….

This whole thing between the New England Patriots, Tom Brady and the National Football League, really has no legs to stand on after seeing the Wells report. You can clearly see there is no solid evidence proving that Brady did, or knew of the deflation to the game day footballs, nor if the deflation really happened. It could quite possibly be that pure science, the warmer temp from the inside and then the colder temp of the outside, could be the reason for the deflation, if it all happened in the first place?

This could be just the NFL trying to save face, after the way they handled one case of child abuse charges and another case of one player ( on video) beating his wife unconscious? Not to mention the fact that, there are other players within the NFL that, simply don’t put their best foot forward representing the NFL in the best way.

When you have a team like the Patriots, that win more than they lose, you are going to have the hater’s hating on the team. Now with these gross implications by the NFL, you have the hater’s speaking loudly now more than before, This so called Wells report has no clear cut evidence to back up the findings and when Brady breaks his silence through his Lawyers, we will all see that Tom did not cheat in a game he loves so much, not to mention a game that clearly no one is as competitive as Tom is of football.

We all need practice to compete in at a high level on game day, Tom during team practices will practice harder than his teammates and he is always first to show up at the practice, this is known fact and this is why he has become a winner, in the sport he knows, loves and enjoys to play. My statement to all the hater’s is, if you want to be like Tom, then step up to the plate, put in the hard work like Tom and become a winner from the hard work you achieve, you will never be a winner from always taking the easy road and hating on a true winner, winning is never easy and when you think you practiced enough, think again? keep practicing so you then can become great at what you do, with this greatness is how you become a winner and a champion.

Quarterbacks like Tom Brady don’t come around all that often and when you hate on him for winning, you just can’t come to like him, nor can you just simply watch and enjoy his play, while he is still playing the game he loves and enjoys to play.

The game of football is first about strategy and second about having the talent to compete and play at a high level, you can’t excel and be great without first practicing and putting the time in to practice, to be better in the sport you love to play. the strategy comes from the playbook that the coaches put together and the players practice the plays, so they can execute each play with perfection, when the players and coaches are on the same page and when the strategy is executed to a “T” and is the best strategy on the field during game day, this is what helps you win the game and ultimately winning the championship you set out to win, on the first game of the season.

” winning and being a champion is about the hard work put in during the practices, so you can execute and have the best strategy”

” to be able to be a winner and a champion, you need to step up to the plate, put in the hard work in practice and stop taking the easy way, or hating on those that do actually win or are a true champion”

” Professional” Sports today…..

“Professional sports today has changed greatly, from what sports used to be like of yesterday”.

In the World of sports today, no matter what sport you look at, Greed has taken control of everything about that sport. You can start with the Owner’s and work your way down from there, An Owner is not going to invest in a sports team, just because he/she loves that sport, they spend big dollars to buy a team, so they then can turn a profit and make the return of investment (ROI), even greater than what they originally paid.

You then have the sponsors who pay these Owners to advertise their products/product inside their stadiums, so they to can make even more money back (ROI). Inside these stadiums the fans want something to eat or drink while they watch that sport they came to see, now you have the food service companies that hold a contract with the stadium, to sell the food and drink to the public and they to want to make money back on their investment, so they charge big money even for a candy bar you may purchase.

You then have to have media there to cover the games whether via radio or television, so the teams can further their brand throughout the sports world, these media companies also want to turn a profit, so they can further create drama instead of calling a game. With all this greed going on within the stadium, I still haven’t mentioned the product on the field, which happens to be the Player’s that play that sport.

These Players of today and because of greed, don’t play the sport anymore just because they love the game? they now want the big money contracts so they can live their plush lifestyles and make others jealous of their new fortune. With this new fortune by the player’s, it will also go straight to their head, which they then play for the money and not the love of the game. Okay true their are some that will play because they love what they do and will excel for the fan, that pays big money to watch them, but these type of players are far and few between, as today sports are played to make everybody wealthy and the fan reaching deeper into their pockets.

The biggest problem with sports today is, now the players and their competitive juices, will do whatever it takes to get the upper hand on their opponent, even if that something is in the form of cheating, just to gain the upper hand. Now I am not saying that all sports players cheat? But they will do whatever it takes to win that game, extend their careers so they can make the big money, for a longer period of time, just so they don’t have to work hard in a 9-5 type of job.

Now as the player learns to gain the system so they can make the bigger money within their sport, you now have players that shouldn’t be playing, simply because they lost the love of the game in which they play, not to mention the love of ourselves, that we all lost towards each other as we walk our paths along this journey through life. When we show this love for each other, than not only will the sports players play the game, for the love of the game, we also throughout life, will walk our journey through life being better and stronger and with a confidence, so we can over come any hurdle that may try to derail us from our path, these hurdles will become smaller as we work hard to achieve them and not try to live a false reality through our sports, or try to gain the upper hand on each other.

” Sports when played the right way and for the love of the game, will always make each on of us watch that game with enjoyment and fun”

” sports today is too much about greed and not enough about the love of the game”

You’ve heard of Duck Dynasty? It’s alive and well in the city of Boston

Unlike the TV show Duck Dynasty that a family has made their money from manufacturing a Duck Kazoo, this Duck Dynasty in Boston starts with one of their four Pro teams winning a championship, then being ushered thru the city on board the now famous Duck boats.

We in the city and those throughout New England, have been hugely spoiled with the rash of championships and the great teams we have been witnessing right before our eyes, the Patriots, Bruins, Red Sox and the Celtics have combined for nine championships over the last thirteen years, can you say true Title Town now? I can cause no other city has had a run like this in my lifetime so far, you can make a case about the Yankees and their winning, but the other teams in that city haven’t help them in the case of the name Title Town.

True we here in New England have been spoiled and a big part of it, goes to two guys named Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, they definitely  will be in the NFL Hall of fame as the best quarterback/coaching tandem in the history of the NFL, but let’s not forget ” in bill we trust”, as his actions to this point have proved that he knows what he is doing. We here in New England have been blessed with some great coaches of our teams, but in my lifetime none better than Bill and Claude Julien of the Boston Bruins. Claude may only have one ring with these Bruins, but his style and way of coaching, keeps this team in the hunt every year.

” Duck Dynasty”. Maybe there should be a new TV show showing what this Duck Dynasty is really about? It is about some converted Armed Services vehicles, that do tours through a city and when a team wins a championship within that city, they get ushered through that city aboard them, with thousands of people screaming and cheering at their favorite teams, you can use the word Dynasty towards a team and how long they have been so good, but nine championships out of thirteen and “keying up the Duck Boats” each time, now that is what I call a ” Duck Dynasty”.

The best thing I saw during today’s victory parade with the New England Patriots was, Tom Brady letting his son hold the trophy and kissing it, just as he himself did after being awarded it at the end of the super bowl. This was the best moment for me, since I watched Ray Bourque giving up the number seven for the number seventy-seven, so Phil Esposito can have his number retired to the rafters of the Boston Garden and into the history of the Boston Bruins.

We here in New England have been blessed with some great teams and championships, yes we have seen our share of downs, but right now we are riding a high, so lets embrace this, enjoy the ride, cause we all truly know that the ride isn’t smooth all the time, you have to experience the lows from any sport, so you can truly experience and appreciate the highs when they come, you also have to learn to lose correctly, so you then can be a great winner, while appreciating it while it is here, this was proven in the way Seattle handled losing at the end of the Super Bowl game and when you lose in this fashion, Karma will always come and bite you in the back side of the Anatomy, so let’s all enjoy the ride of our favorite sports teams here in New England, so when the drought does come we can learn to lose as graciously as we win, then the drought wont be as long, as Karma won’t interfere with the ” Duck Dynasty”.

” nine out of thirteen championships, is nothing to sneeze at for any city looking at sports champions”

” Duck dynasty may be a tv show, but the true duck dynasty is in the true title town of the city of Boston”

The New England Patriots are the team to beat

The way the Patriots started the season and getting lit up at home to the Kansas City Chiefs, then all the so called Patriot fans coming out and calling for Brady and Belicheks’s jobs? Well where are these negative people now with the Patriots going to another Superbowl?

Tom Brady is one of these type of Quarterbacks that don’t come around that often and we need to just sit back and enjoy the ride, these Individuals that spoke of his decline…… well I think Brady has shut them up with his play on the field this season, Brady is also the type of Quarterback that can turn a nobody receiver, into a star in the league and if you look back at Dieon Branch, what he did here with Tom, then going to Seattle and doing nothing, speaks loudly of the type of Quarterback Brady is, he is also a true humble person and always puts his team before himself, he works the hardest in practices and studies more film on other teams defenses than any other Quarterback in the league, Tom when he entered the NFL with the Patriots, was so far off the radar no team even looked his way, but The hard work by Tom gave him his chance when Drew Bledsoe went down, then Tom never looked back and worked even harder to keep this job pretty much for his entire career, Tom’s competitive juices are second to none throughout the league and I will say he is the most competitive Quarterback in the game today.

What can you say about Bill Belichek? the only word that comes to my mind is “GENIUS”. Bill knows the game inside the game, he knows when to get players and when to release them, Bill is a very demanding coach of his players, but he only demands cause he knows how to get the very best from the players, the Patriots under Bill are the ones that came out with the no huddle quick offense with Brady working it to perfection, now with the last two games this season in the these playoffs you see a lot of different formations and plays from these formations, which throws off the defense and makes them confused on what is going to be played, goes to show what the Legacy of Bill Belichek and Tom Brady are all about, plus now you may see more teams picking up on this, so they can try to be like the Patriots? The only issue I have with other teams doing what the Patriots have success with is, there is only one Tom Brady and one Bill Belichek.

We can not mention the Patriots without mentioning Bob Kraft, since he bought this team he has become the best Owner in all professional sports. Not just being an Owner of the team, but what he does away from the game, with his open wallet when it comes to charities, Bob Kraft is more than a Businessman and more than an Owner of a football team, he is a great Humanitarian within our Society and his humbleness has affected each member of the New England Patriots Team. This alone is why this team is so good, for so long.

You are going to have a lot of so called fans and so called sports media members, who have become to hate on this Patriot Organization, let’s put it this way, the Patriots have become to football, like the Yankees have become to baseball, just simply because they win more than they lose, what I challenge to these haters is, if you want to win and be a winner, then step up and beat a winner. It’s not about the Patriots marching down the field and scoring, it’s even more about the other team to try to stop them from scoring, those that hate on a team cause they win too much, don’t really know the game, or even better they don’t really know how sports in general are played. You play the game to win, in football you play for a chance at the Lombardi trophy, this Patriot team worked hard all season for this chance at one more game for the Lombardi, they overcame a lot of adversity throughout the season and had a difficult schedule to get to this point, they earned this chance at yet another Lombardi, we as true fans need to just sit back and enjoy the ride, so this team of the Patriots can finish the journey they set out to do at the beginning of the season.

” Good luck to the New England Patriots and may you finish your journey you set out to do”

” You play the game to win, you play the game to be a Champion”

” sports is about winning and stopping another team from the goal of winning”

” You can’t learn to win gracefully, without first losing gracefully”
