Just a disappointing season for me as a Patriots fan.


Whoever makes the playoffs, rooting for the underdogs. Anything but the Chiefs again. (Apologies Chiefs fans.)

Sorry to hear that the Patriots haven't been doing well this season

I like rooting for the underdogs, it can be not so fun if the winner is the same team too often (unless you're a big fan of them of course )

Oh wow! Why did they get fired? Hopefully their replacements will be more suited to the team!

I think it was in part due to their 42-point loss to the Raiders on Thursday. They also only scored 7 points vs. Denver this month in a loss.

Probably, think they would have gotten fired at the end of the season anyways

That does sound like it was bound to happen at some point. Sometime you just have to cut your losses I guess.

I finally won my fantasy football league (by only 6 points!) after playing for almost 10 ten years. I have never won before. I was thrilled.

And, #1 seed in the NFC for my Niners.

End of a era in New England




Quote:
ON FOOTBALL


Patriots owner Robert Kraft put his arm around Bill Belichick at the end of their joint press conference Thursday.
After 24 years, it had become obvious: It was time for the Patriots to move on from Bill Belichick
BEN VOLIN
January 11 at 5:25 PM ET
See all the Globe’s coverage of Bill Belichick’s departure
FOXBOROUGH — At the NFL owners’ meetings in October in New York, Steelers owner Art Rooney II stopped briefly to chat about the decision in 1991 to move on from legendary coach Chuck Noll.
“After 23 years, it was time,” Rooney said. “It was just time.”
It was 24 years together for Bill Belichick and the Patriots. It was a spectacular run that may never be duplicated, in both length and accomplishments.
Thursday, it came to an end when the Patriots and Belichick parted ways.
It was just time.
Robert and Jonathan Kraft made the move that had to be made, given the state of the Patriots and Belichick’s tenure. A 4-13 record this season, and 29-39 (including postseason) the last four years with no playoff wins, is not where anyone expected to be.
“The last three years have been pretty tough,” Robert Kraft said Thursday. “It just is something that was best we each moved on, and I think that’s what the last three, four days of taking the time to figure it out allowed us to do.”

Belichick, 71, still has plenty of energy and know-how. He will probably get another head coaching job. The Patriots could have brought him back for another year with a different mix of personnel around him — a new general manager, yet another offensive coordinator, a new quarterback.
But that would have just been delaying the inevitable. Belichick always emphasized doing the best thing for the organization. On Jan. 11, 2024, the best move forward for the Patriots is with new leadership.
“Our family is the custodian of this asset, the New England Patriots, and you know how important it is to the psyche of the community,” Kraft said. “And what’s gone on here the last three or four years isn’t what we wanted, so we have a responsibility to do what we can to fix it to the best of our ability.”
Just because it’s time to move on doesn’t diminish the past or Belichick’s impact. As time wears on, Belichick’s six Super Bowl championships, 17 division titles, and 300-plus wins will shine far brighter than his sub-.500 record without Tom Brady
