    The Edelman to Amendola TD tied the Ravens game at 28. Second 14 point deficit overcome. 3rd and 15 to Edelman down 10 against Seattle. But of course those plays would be considered "Moot" (Maybe), if not for Brady (And Butler) in SB 49.

    Was there one defining play or moment that started up the dynasty 2.0?

    Easy call. It’s was Butler’s pick. Watch Brady on the sidelines looking absolutely defeated when Kearse did the circus catch 3.0.

    Had they lost that game, who knows what would’ve happened next. There definitely would’ve been some finger pointing.

    If the Pats has lost to the Seahawks it would have been 3 SB losses in a row. That’s a legacy changer and might have derailed the dynasty. Butler is the easy choice. That one play changed so much about the 2010s.

    I don't agree with "dynasty 2" nonsense... The Patriots won 3/4 super bowls, then won 3/5 super bowls...in between they won 8 division titles, went to 5 conference championship games and 2 super bowls....it's ONE dynasty, the best in modern sports history

    Drafts in 2010 (DMac, Gronk), 2011 (Solder, Vereen, Ridley, Cannon) & 2012 (Jones, Hightower) yielded tough, reliable, key pieces that were the foundation for winning.

    It's both one dynasty but also three kind distinct periods of time. Each of them is a time period that the vast majority of franchises would have KILLED for.

    Period 1 - 2001-2006
    * 6 seasons
    * 70-26 (.729)
    * 5 division titles
    * 3 SB titles
    * 3 AFC titles
    * Offense was much more traditional
    * Old school defensive pass rules were mainly in effect
    * Good offense, but stellar defense

    Period 2 - 2007-2013
    * 7 seasons
    * 88-24 (.786)
    * 6 division titles
    * 0 SB titles
    * 2 AFC titles
    * Offense exploded into the best in the NFL
    * Defense was solid but not elite

    Period 3 - 2014-2019
    * 6 seasons
    * 74-22 (.771)
    * 6 division titles
    * 3 SB titles
    * 5 AFC titles
    * Offense elite
    * Defense often elite

    There's still a dent in my wall from the Butler pick. My best friend and I jumped up and hugged so hard by head slammed into the wall leaving a decent sized dent.

    So that's my pick lol.

    I refuse to fix it btw

    Malcolm's pick doesn't happen Dynasty 2.0 is no such thing as that would have been 3 straight SB losses.

    If you're reducing it to one moment, it's the Butler pick.

    The 2014 off-season was low-key important too. Look at who was picked up:
    1. Revis - Yeah, he was a 1 year mercenary hire, but it was a good one. He had his last elite season in 2014 and stabilized the secondary
    2. Browner - The guy is mostly remembered now for how he completely flamed out as a human being after leaving the league, but he was a solid contributor all year, and was instrumental in making the Butler pick happen on that play.
    3. LaFell - A guy who's kind of been forgotten, but his one genuinely good season was in 2014, and he made some absolutely clutch catches, including the back-breaking TD vs. the Ravens in the playoffs and a TD vs. the Seahawks in the Super Bowl.
    4. Blount - He left for the Steelers after 2013... and then came back pretty much just to bulldoze the Colts to death in the AFC Championship. They would have won that game anyway, but it was hilarious.

    LaFell being good for that one year never stopped baffling the hell out of me. He looked 100% like the kind of guy who New England brings in and never gets the offense... except he did.

    And it wasn't even what you'd assume where a big guy with solid raw talent but major consistency issues busts out the odd big play... it was pretty much just him properly executing the bread-and-butter plays of a notoriously receiver-unfriendly offense from like week 3 on. He just showed up and was kind of... nice to have on the team?

    1. Coming to New England from experience elsewhere just intensifies a player's focus.

    A lot.

    It's different here.

    Because, the focus here is on football. Not distractions, not blather, not B.S.

    The Patriots take on the personality of their head coach.

    Some players can carry on for years; others kind of can't take it anymore after a couple seasons or so.

    ...Or 20.

    Which brings me to:


    2. Brady.


    At this point I'm really hoping #1 is by far the bigger factor than #2.

    The one in my sig. Look at the score, down and distance, and time remaining. That was do-or-die. They chose to do.
