Can The New England Patriots Return To Super Bowl ?

Let’s all be honest, love them or hate them you had to be impressed with the comeback that the New England Patriots put on in Super Bowl LI. With that victory, the Patriots sealed their place in history as one of the best teams of all time. Tom Brady and the rest of the team came from odds that many said were impossible and beat the Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots have proven that they are a tough team to keep down, even with Tom on the bench for the first four games of the season the team found a way to win. Now that the impossible has been accomplished, the question is to be asked, can the New England Patriots return to the Super Bowl?

Tom Brady
This is a man that if he does not retire in the off season will more likely than not be going into his final season. After all, he is going into his 16th season as a Patriot after being drafted in the 6th round by New England. This just goes to prove that even if you don’t get drafted in the first round, then you can still be a successful player in the NFL. Yes there have been a few controversies that have followed Brady, there is no doubt that he will go into the Hall of Fame in the first attempt. If he does come back for another season, then this will be his last or at least it should be.

Ron Gronkowski
Gronk had to sit out a good portion of 2016 and that led to the Patriots proving that he is not the sole reason that the team has had so much success. Expect to see him back in the lineup in 2017 and him still being a powerful force for the Patriots. He is a joy to watch on the field and his off-field antics have proven to be just as exciting as well. He will without a doubt put up a good amount of numbers this season and will strengthen what is already a strong line for the upcoming season.

Julian Edelman
For anyone that has been living under a rock the last few years, Edelman is one of the key running backs that the Patriots have to rely on. When he gets the ball, he makes big plays happen and if he can’t he makes the efforts look awesome in the process. Look for him to have another banner year and if he does, then the Patriots will be a hard team to beat.

Looking at the rest of the team, there are a number of other players that will still have an impact in the Patriots lineup. With the upcoming draft later this year, it is expected that the team will pick up some good picks that if not this year in the next couple will provide a strong lineup for them. One of the men that the Patriots are hoping to be able to keep around is that of Chris Long. If the name does not ring a bell, then his father Howie Long may be a little more recognizable. The Patriots will need to make sure that they secure him and that he does not sign with another team, though it does not seem that he will be in a hurry to leave New England.

All in all, it looks that the Patriots are set to run a strong season and again be a contender for the playoffs. This run is very well going to lead to another Super Bowl title run. That is something that we can all agree on.
