The New England Patriots Run The World As The Franchise Is Getting Ready To Play In Its NFL Record 9th Super Bowl
So with the New England Patriots preparing to play in their ninth Super Bowl in the franchises history I am sitting around and wondering if their is a franchise in any sport that can compete with them.
Sure if you are out of the New England market you may have a deep embedded hatred of the Patriots and Tom Brady, but you have to respect what they have been able to do.
They are on a sustained run since 2000 with 7 Super Bowl appearances and four Super Bowl titles in the 6 games they have already played. No other team in the modern era has been able to do that in the NFL.
In other sports you have teams like the SF Giants, Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Red Sox, and a few others sprinkled in-between. But to go to 7 league championships and win a majority of them is unheard of in modern sports.
When their run is said and done Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will go down as being the best to ever play the game in their respective roles. Hell there could be a time down the road that the NFL renames the Lombardi Trophy the Belichick Trophy. That may seem like a homer way of saying it but it isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
This team generates a lot of hate and speculation steaming from rumored filled investigations such as Spy-Gate and Deflate-Gate, all of which have tarnished the legacies of Brady and Belichick and the Kraft ownership group. But putting that all aside what they have been able to accomplish is something worth appreciating. Hopefully fans around the NFL realize that before it is too late and regret that they never appreciated two legends running an entire league.
