The New England Patriots went from “coming to Buffalo” to be operational until 2021 within a week.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick all but dropped towels in the 2020 season a day after New England collapsed to Buffalo Bills 24-21. Now it’s 2-5, Belichick is opening up the team’s struggles. To put it simply, the head coach said that the team’s salary limit issues have kept them from finding a candidate this season.
“Look, we paid Cam Newton $ 1 million,” Belichick said during his weekly WEEI appearance. Obviously we don’t have any money. Whose fault is that. That’s what we have been doing for the past five years. We sold out and won 3 Super Bowls, played in the fourth, and played in one match at the AFC Championship. This year, we have to work less together. It was not an excuse, it was just a fact. “
Patriots fans are not used to being near the end of the tournament, but past sales have certainly been worth it given how Belichick explained about the team’s woes this season.
The good news for Patriots fans is that New England is in good shape as it prepares to enter 2021 and may have a top 10 draft selection of their own in April. their can last only one season.
Of course, nothing is guaranteed in the NFL. Bills, Dolphins and Jets fans can only hope that New England fans continue to experience the hardships their respective fan bases have faced over the past two decades.
