Many people are excited about Super Bowl 2018. Of course, in all likelihood, the New England Patriots will be the winners. The triumph of the New England Patriots football team has surprised a lot of people. Chief Executive Officer Robert Kraft helped to make the New England Patriots the successful team that they are today. They’re now leaders within the NFL.
As recently as the early 1990’s, the New England Patriots were not regarded as an especially victorious team. While their performance was never as consistently poor as that of the Cleveland Browns, the New England Patriots have improved a great deal over the years. They’re now one of the most important teams in the entire sport of football. Many people compare them to the Yankees baseball team in terms of the diverse reactions that they inspire.
People who support the New England Patriots are following the news obsessively and loving every single moment of their rise to power. Many people who support other teams are increasingly frustrated by the success of their rivals. Still, it’s possible that there’s no stopping the New England Patriots for this Superbowl.
How the Patriots Made Super Bowl 2018
The Patriots made Super bowl 2018 for a number of reasons. Obviously, most people will say that star quarterback Tom Brady has led the team to victory almost by himself. While he is a deservedly acclaimed player, to say that the victory of the Patriots is entirely due to Tom Brady’s performance is to miss the subtleties of their strategy and the team’s focus on cooperation and intellectual maneuvers.
Meanwhile, Tom Brady in particular has a somewhat tricky style on the field. The patriots offense led the league in yards gained (6,307) and ranked second in points scored (458). The 40-year old Brady finished his 18th season with a league-leading 4,577 passing yards and 32 touchdowns with just eight interceptions, earning him his 13th selection to the Pro Bowl. He’s able to fool players about where he’s going to throw the ball based on the shifting direction of his eyes. Defensive backs are trained to watch the direction of the quarterback’s eyes, so this is a trick that was more or less specifically designed to exploit the abilities that defensive backs are supposed to have. He’s able to use their powers against them.
Still, the Patriots as a whole have a good system for winning. General manager Bill Belichick in particular is known for identifying the weaknesses of the opposing team and exploiting them in a way that is allowed within the rules of the game. Even at the professional level, different teams will have strengths and weaknesses. Bill Belichick has a good eye for strategy, and he knows how the Patriots can legally and effectively influence the opposing team.
If the opposing team is good at throwing, for instance, that team will be pressured into rushing thanks to the actions of the Patriots players. One thing that helped make up for the loss of Edelman would be the new acquisition of receiver Brandin Cooks, who caught 65 passes for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns. Brady was also aided by the healthy return of Gronkowski, who had played just eight games in the previous season, finishing this year with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight scores. The Patriots will have the opportunity to maximize their own strengths as a result.
Why the Patriots Will Win Super Bowl 52
Once again, many people will say that the Patriots are a victorious team because of star quarterback Tom Brady and famous for the 16th time in their 18 seasons under 65-year old coach Bill Belichick they recorded double digit wins. It’s possible that the Patriots would be victorious in Super Bowl 52 even if the team had nothing going for it other than Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
The Patriots also have a special system for dealing with the press that’s fairly unique. More than other teams, the Patriots refuse to talk about any potentially salacious news items related to their fellow teammates or anything else. This makes them better at cooperation. It also makes them more focused on the game itself. This is truly a team that cares more about teamwork than most.
There was a Super bowl tradition involving the players getting introduced one at a time on the field. The Patriots decided to be introduced as a team, running out onto the field at the same time. This is now standard in the Super bowl. However, the Patriots helped to popularize this new tradition. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick were still with the team when this started.
Most people like this new style. After all, football introductions used to take a long time. Introducing the players as members of a team keeps the event going. However, it’s clear that the Patriots have an incredibly team-oriented mindset that still sets them apart from many other football teams. This spirit of cooperation has helped them emerge victorious over and over again, and it will help them win Super Bowl LII.
