Will the Patriots Make It to the Superbowl This Year?
Let me start off by saying I HOPE NOT! Sorry lol. I'm just not a fan of the Pats, mostly because of their "fans". Starter jackets were a HUGE thing when I was a kid. Everyone wore them which meant you knew everyone's team. I don't remember seeing a single Patriots jacket...not one. Now suddenly IN WEST TEXAS, we have a ton of "life long" Patriots fans. You can usually spot them instantly. They're the loudest fans on social media and they talk the most trash, especially about Texas teams. I know 3 true old school Pats fans. 2 of which are from the north east coast so that makes sense. Old school Pats fans don't talk nearly as much trash as the bandwagon fans, because they remember what it was like to have their team destroyed season after season. Most of them also know time is running out. Next time you see someone on social media talking trash and claiming to be a Pats fan, ask them to take the 10 year challenge. Tell them to post a pic of them in random Pats gear over 10 years ago. I haven't seen any able to do it yet. Now on to the original question.
I really don't think the Patriots will get into the Superbowl this year. Call me crazy, but they just don't seem to be the same team. Brady is getting older. Don't get me wrong. They're a hell of a good team even this year, but I think that classic Brady luck is running thin. It's 100% just a hunch, but I just don't think we will see the Pats in the Superbowl this year. If I had to name a team right now, I'd probably go with the Ravens for the win.
