ESPN put together a “Best of” series that looked at different categories of players, coaches, and teams throughout the NFL, and the New England Patriots found their way somehow onto each list. Writer Jeffri Chadiha spearheaded the writing of the players and coaches piece while John Clayton wrapped it up with the teams piece.. Here are the categories the Patriots were able to crack into the “Best of” series:
- Best QB in the clutch: Tom Brady
- Best X’s and O’s: Bill Belichick
- Best coaching staff: New England Patriots
Is anyone surprised?
