New England Patriots NFL’s Winning Blueprint
on Mar 20, 2017 09:33 AM EDT
While Tom Brady has been the Patriots' more popular figure on and off the field, someone close is also in parity with what the quarterback has done for the team. It has been an unbelievable season for New England. A huge part of this year's campaign can be attributed to the strategic expertise of the football club's head coach.
Bill Belichick is looking forward to his 42nd season as an NFL mentor. It will be his 17th year with the Patriots. What makes his run extraordinary is due to the fact that he is the only head coach in the league's history to win three Super Bowl championships in a span of four years. Back in 2007, he has led the Patriots to an astounding 16-0 regular season.
Considering that New England has a high 73 percent regular season (189-69) winning rate from 2000 to 2015, Belichick's system is a sough-after program. With five rings to his credit, his 23 career playoff victories are the best all-time among head coaches. Considering that the Patriots have only dropped six back-to-back games during its regular season campaigns since 2003, the team's focus and strong-willed approach are definitely remarkable.
Former tight end Martellus Bennett wittingly sums up New England's winning blueprint. Considering his role during the Patriots' magical Super Bowl triumph over the Atlanta Falcons, he knows what winning is all about. In fact, it is winning that made him love the organization. However, Bill Belichick's system is more than just claiming it all.
Being on the Patriots' roster is also about reviving careers and taking risks. Former Detroit Lion Kyle Van Noy and former Arizona Cardinal Michael Floyd have been key pieces in New England's latest championship triumph. Adding former running back LeGarrette Blount in 2014 to the lineup has been considered dicey by many but it actually paid off since the Patriots bagged Super Bowls XLIX and LI.
With New England consistently winning, it is safe to assume that most NFL teams are looking to adopt Belichick's system. However, the way rival organizations are following the blueprint is not really on the dot. Acquiring high-profile draft picks is not something the Patriots are fond of doing. In addition to seeking the perfect fit, looking for gold mines in free agency is more like the team's approach.
