jlrfalcon Posted April 22, 2020 Share Posted April 22, 2020 New England has been almost a predetermined showpiece the last couple of decades with a "perfect" QB at the helm and a "never do wrong" HC running things. There has been some losing mixed in to make things look realistic but almost everything has worked out conveniently for the franchise. And, the NFL has certainly has great marketing with the franchise's players. We in Atlanta will never forget the 28-3 lead that conveniently evaporated against NE as almost everything that was going right for us just suddenly went wrong allowing a storybook comeback for NE. Many other teams can also question how things have conveniently worked out for NE and how it has escaped scandals, hard schedules, high-priced QB contracts, and mediocre backup QB play. So, now we are at 2020 and this franchise is suddenly looking at a major turning point. Its HC is still in place but possibly is contemplating retirement in the near future. Its QB has passed the normal retirement age for his position and actually has "retired" to Florida to play one more season. And, now today, its "get away with everything" TE who did not play last season in favor of wrestling is suddenly reappearing to join his old QB buddy in Florida. So, what is going on? Did Belichick convince the owner that Brady and Gronk were past their prime and should both retire? Is this supposed to be some kind of proof that both Belichick and Brady can be great separated? Do Brady and Gronk plan this 2020 season to be proof that they are indeed superhuman outside of NE? Did the NFL agree to make this some kind of farewell season for Brady and Gronk similar to Manning's in Denver? Has the Super Bowl winner already been predetermined to be Tampa Bay with Brady/Gronk retiring shortly after? Are we somehow going to have a Tampa Bay/New England Super Bowl magically come about-who would win? Would the NFL even allow Brady to have a "bad" season given his marketing value and the possible harm to it? If NE has survived scandals in the past, would it allow ex-players to show up its franchise elsewhere? Why are Brady and Gronk really playing other than self-esteem-they have money, rings, HOF certainty? As for the Falcons? Will the NFL allow the Falcons to possibly "show up" Brady and Gronk and bring question to Super Bowl 51? Have the Falcons already agreed to let Tampa Bay win its 2 games against us to set up the Brady/Gronk farewell tour? Is the NFL actually in favor of NE and wanting the Falcons to beat "washed up" Brady and Gronk who did not retire when they should have? Are the jobs of Quinn and NE-offspring TD safe in 2020 no matter what as it is already written for Brady/Gronk to win the NFC South? Is the NFL on NE's side and actually going to help the Falcons with a great FA pickup late or draft day trade? The NFL will be better once Brady and Gronk are gone and teams like the Falcons can play normally. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
