The New England Patriots are back to run train on the rest of the NFL and we’ve got the memes to celebrate (?).
While the Patriots are as stacked as they’ve ever been, Tom Brady is entering his age 40 season, and only one quarterback has ever won a playoff game at 40-years-old, and that was Brett Favre back in 2010 with the Vikings.
Not being satisfied with completing the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all-time, the Patriots won the offseason as well, adding a boatload of talent across the board (perhaps suggesting they believe this will be Brady’s last season). On offense, the Pats added tight end Dwayne Allen from the Colts, lightning quick receiver Brandin Cooks from the New Orleans Saints, Rex Burkhead, and Mike Gillislee.
On defense, the Evil Empire of New England snatched up cornerback Stephon Gilmore in free agency, snagged David Harris after the Jets cut him, and resigned their own corner, Malcom Butler.
While this may be Tom Brady’s last season, the Patriots currently possess both the talent and assets to continue to dominate for years to come.
All that said, no matter who you root for (other than the Patriots fans, obviously) I think we can all agree that the Patriots have had just about enough success at this point so it would be really great of Brady if his play would nosedive off a cliff already, because enough is enough already.
