New England Patriots

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 New England Patriots Football Preview:

The New England Patriots will enter 2009 looking to put the past behind them. Bill Belichick’s team looked to be dead in the water early in 2008, but then rebounded to barely miss the playoffs. The key for the 2009 will be the return of future hall of fame quarterback Tom Brady. If Brady is completely recovered from the knee injury he suffered in ’08, then the Patriots could well be the favorites to return to the Super Bowl. Brady will be surrounded by weapons on offense, including the dynamic duo at receiver of Randy Moss and Wes Walker. The Pats also picked up veteran running back Fred Taylor, who is the type of player that seems to thrive in New England’s team environment. Fans in Boston will be holding their breath until they see how Brady’s knee holds up in a live game. But if Tom is healthy, the Pats fans might be making a trip to South Florida in early 2010.

The New England Pats play in the East Division of the American Football Conference of the National Football League (NFL). The New England Patriots first played football as the Boston Patriots in the American Football League. The franchise began in 1960. The team managed one trip to the AFL championship in the 1960′s. In 1971, the team was renamed first the Bay State Patriots and then the new England Patriots. The New England Patriots struggled for much of its history, until reaching the Super Bowl in 1985, only to be trounced by the Chicago Bears. The New England Patriots would then return to mediocrity among financial problems and personnel changes. Rumors of a move to St. Louis were squashed when Foxboro Stadium owner, Robert Kraft bought the team and announced he had no intention of moving it. At this point coach Bill Parcels began a rebuilding process that would eventually end in his being replaced by first Pete Carroll and then the team’s current coach, Bill Belichik. Star quarterback Drew Bledsoe would get injured and be replaced by 6th round draft pick Tom Brady who would lead the team to their first Super Bowl in 2001, but he wasn’t finished there and the New England Patriots appear to be a true football dynasty.

The New England Patriots play their home games at the breathtaking Gillette Stadium with a seating capacity of over 68,000. The new stadium has provided New England with an incredible home field advantage, with every game a sellout since the stadium opened! This is the most exciting ticket in football.
