    If Belichick leaves for another team, I'd say most likely it's the Giants with Shurmur being one-and-done.
    I was speaking hypothetical here. But if you had a choice who would you rather have? has a HC.

    And I won't be surprised if Gilmore walks or is released by next season.

    I think Belichick is the best coach in NFL history, but I wouldn't want him as a HC if he's only looking to do it for a couple of years. His success in New England is based on the organization he built and that will be very hard for him to replicate in just a short time span with another team. Similarly, if he wanted to transplant the Patriots' culture that would mean getting rid of quite some talent on the new team at first. Yes, he won the SB in his second season with the Pats, but that was with Parcells' players (McGinest, Law, Milloy, ...) and the two ran very similar approaches to building a roster. That first SB was won with defense, too, which Belichick obviously excels in. So any new team he joined would need a base core of defensive talent for him to be successful right away.

    Obviously I say all of that as an Eagles fan who's very happy with the current coaching staff. I guess I would feel differently if I were a Bucs fan, for example.

    Unfortunately, that's correct. Steve Young and Aaron Rodgers didn't let the shadow stop them.

    As long as Brady is there the Pats will be great.

    Man, this guy will be so disappointed when Pats end up with 12-4 and end up in the AFC title game.

    All the players the Pats lost played a role on the team last year. Not saying their losses won't be felt but I've seen this show with the Pats enough to give them the benefit of the doubt to see how they fill those holes. Have to remember the Pats were decimated with injuries last year to some core players and those guys are coming back (Edelman, Hightower).

    Ultimately, I don't think BB will coach more than 5 more years (and that might be generous). But I think he will have some sort of succession plan in place at both HC and QB by the time he's done in NE.

Oh I don't believe the Dolphins are gonna sign all 4 guys was just saying all 4 will most likely sign with another team/s. Sorry for the mixup.
    Theres something called cap management. The better your team, the more issues will arise. It'd be nice to be able to lock everyone up, but that's how life is in the nfl.

    Age will eventually catch up to him sooner or later. I say one or two more good yrs left in him
    then we're stuck with Brian Hoyer

    The won't end up 12-4 more like 8-8 or 10-6 tops and will lose the wildcard round against Either Jacksonville
    or Houston.

    I think you're the only Patriots fan who doesn't consider him the best player on the defense.
    First 4 years:
    Brown - 54 GP, 27 GS, 261 catches (63.3%) for 3,561 yds (8.6 AVG), 15 TD
    Landry - 64 GP, 57 GS, 400 catches (70.2%) for 4,038 yds (10.1 AVG), 22 TD

    Huh. Wonder why Landry is getting paid so much...

    Brian Hoyer will be retired by the time Brady retires, most likely.

    Sounding like he's going to be cut before this season starts with the interest the Pats have in AJ McC.

    If Gilmore struggles next season I don't see him with them past Novemeber. Hoyer will probably still be a backup after Brady's gone where that's anyones guess. And they could of had Jimmy G has Brady's heir.
