Bill B will likely not be the coach of the Patriots in 2024. Robert Kraft hated the idea of a black QB so much, he selected Mac Jones, who lost the QB completion to be his next Brady.

And when Bill couldn't make a milkshake out of Cow dung, he's going to scapegoat him now too.

I hope that Franchise is 2-15 for the next 5 years until Kraft decides to sell.

Show us where on the doll Bill Belichick touched you.

You know BB just signed a long term extremely valuable contract with the pats right? https://www.nfl.com/news/bill-belich...eDay%20Morning.


Kraft is old, but I don't see him selling, why would he? His son sits with him at almost every game and is president of the Patriots. Robert Kraft said in an interview for The Dave Rubenstein Show “Never in my lifetime. And I hope my children keep it going as well because it’s such a unique asset.”

Robert Kraft bought the franchise in 1994 for 172 million U.S. dollars. The franchise is worth 7B now. In 2023 it had a 15% yoy increase in value while the team has been horrible for the last ~5 years. https://www.statista.com/statistics/...ts-since-2006/

Aside from the Patriots, the Kraft company also owns Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution, Gilette Stadium, and the multi-million lifestyle and entertainment center Patriot Place etc.

Aren't they like in 2nd place behind the cowboys in franchise value? Got to be top 3 I believe.

The Patriots have not been horrible "for the last ~5 years." They've made Playoffs twice in recent years and won the SB in 2018. The descent into obscurity really started once Tom Brady left. Even though they've made Playoffs a couple times, they just haven't been the same. They can still bounce back, they just can't do it with Mac Jones under center.

What Mahomes did was completely outrageous and out of character for a super bowl winning quarterback. That outburst along with the lack of a likeable personality on that NetFlix quarterback show makes me question if he is that great of a guy. I'm also sick of seeing him, Kelce, and Andy Reid in all the damn commercials while I watch games, and all the Taylor Swift stuff. The Chiefs can slip back into not being relevant and I wouldn't be mad; who knows maybe that happens if they can't put good receivers on the field for Mahomes.

And they can't give tickets away to watch a noodle armed statue throw TDs to the other team.

The fact that Mac Jones even started is a travisty - it's almost as tragic as watching him play.

We saw multiple QB competitions:

Baker Mayfield vs. Kyle Trask
Mayfield started and Trask is the backup

Anthony Richardson vs. Gardner Minshew
Richardson got the start, and Minshew was the backup until Richardson was injured

Sam Howell vs. Jacoby Brissett
Howell started and Brissett is the backup

Cam Newton vs Mac Jones
Cam wins training camp, Mac starts and Cam gets released


Mac Jones vs Bailey Zappe
Mac wins, Zappe is the backup


Yeah, totally normal stuff.

You mean you don't enjoy Mr. Pfizer's double vax commercials? or Mahomes and MaAuto?

They are making it easy to hate on the Chiefs, that is for sure.

BB leaving NE would not be the worst in all honesty. We had an amazing run with TB. The last 5 seasons, if you include this one, we didn't get to the playoffs. A fresh start could be good.

No one in NE wants our current QBs. No one in NE wants Cam. Heck no one in the NFL wants him.

Ha ha. I can't decide what I'm more annoyed with: all the recent Chiefs players commercials and publicity, or in the past when Aaron Rodgers (in his Packers days) was in every other commercial while watching a football game.

For lack of Talent or other reasons? Mac Jones still had a job, so does Wentz, Sam Darnold, Brian Hoyer, and Nathan Peterman.

This is absolutely atrocious play by Dallas Cowboys first half. Self destructive penalties! Stupid ass Coaching staff missing that Fumble and not challenging!
Shitty Tackling! Dak and the Offense aren't playing with purpose.

I expect the Eagles to drop not one but two remaining games. Niners will also lose at least one.

My Cowboys you ask? RUN THE TABLE AND CLINCH THE DIVISION!!!

The Bills looked great today. So did the 49ers. Great football afternoon.

I hope the 49ers can stay healthy. It should be a great playoff.

That was a bad loss, did Cowboys get exposed? Bills ran the ball down their throat, Dan Quinn had no answer. 49 carries for 266 yards. Allen threw the ball only 15 times.

Bills looked more physical. They are basically playing all must win games at the moment. Cowboys apparently had some flu that ran through the locker room all week.

If 49ers can get through Ravens next week, they should be good for the bye week in playoffs. Get all their players rested.

Well, they might be in luck as 2 of their remaining games are against my Vikes who like to do many stupid things and lose very close games. The Lions will win the division but I don't see them winning more than 1 playoff game. The competition on the top of the NFC is too fierce.
