Yep.  Belichick builds a team in lieu of accumulating talent.  Values dependability over your time in the 40.  And don’t tell FFS1970, but he rarely goes BPA.  

Where Belichick really wins is 2 areas:

First by meeting tenders to sign RSA, which almost nobody does....they had almost no picks in 2017 but got 3 starters by giving up those picks to get restricted free agents.

And second he uses the inherent benefit of trading for a player.  The signing bonus stays with the team he signed with, so NE only inherits the base salary and let’s the other team assume the rest.  Clever

Exactly, wish we would do more Abraham trades

Or bring Joey Harrington out of retirement

Just give up while you’re ahead. You’ve run out of material

Lol. There is no way to run out material. Wasn't comparing Joey to Brees at all. Was just a reference to the best dink and dunk first pick of all time. We passed him around like Hebert who was pretty **** good at himself.

Honestly wasn't a knock on Brees who is a top 5 qb in NFL history. He'll have 3 more seasons in the modern NFL to get another ring.

I'm calling falcons saints NFCCG, and falcons drop a 14 point lead when Brees grts injured and teddy comes in and has a career day. Game will be won by whoever has the ball last

I mean, when you look at that roster, it’s not that impressive. That’s why i’ve Always been fascinated about the patriot way, it shows how important buy-in is to their success. 

It's funny because the cry around here is always "PAY THE MAN!!" and the Patriots,  for the most part do the exact opposite. Yet "PAY THE MAN!!" is still the mantra here and a lot of other places.

If a team ever wants to replicate the Patriots model, then it would behoove them to maybe actually... start with the whole "replicating" of the model part.

Their roster is impressive in it's own way; value per player-production return vs investment, etc

Great point. Yet nobody does it, because they lack the courage and conviction of Belichick.

Closer to home....Everybody points to warren Buffett, inarguably the greatest investor to ever live. Yet very few do what he says and does.

If I remember right, the Patriots had  38 players earn over $1,000,000 (tops in NFL by far) while the Falcons had 26.  Quality depth is so vital to the Patriots success. They may not have the star power of other teams, but they have more solid players on their roster than any other team

It’s tough to do.  Takes brass balls to let a Grady Jarrett walk.

Yes sir. As you know, Patriots invest as much in scouting 2nd tier free agents as they do in the draft. Most folks don’t grasp the fact they don’t just use the draft to replace their costly players who leave with cheaper ones. They are always very active in free agency, just not in chasing higher cost, thereby lower value players, but instead they go after the low-cost high value players who they feel will fit into their system.

Warren Buffett goes to McDonalds every morning. If the day prior his investment portfolio increased, he will order a Sausage McMuffin with egg....if his portfolio dropped, he orders just the Sausage McMuffin to save the .70 cents.

Compounding Interest, baby!!!

The other teams in their division have taken a big long nap for 20 years. The Patriots were good before Bill returned as head coach after being Parcells' defensive co-ordinator there., and Brady was drafted.

I would not be surprised if The PAtriots continue winning with McDaniels as HC and a new QB after Bill and Brady retire.

The other teams in The AFC East do not try, fire coaches way too early, and not as strong as most NFC divisions.

Exactly...

and what did the lack of depth do to the Falcons this year?
