WRECKING COMPETITORS STRUCTURALLY IS A SKILL:

Falcons can only hope to avoid same fate as recent Patriots postseason victims (Jeff Howe, March 02, 2017, Boston Herald)

One by one, Patriots adversaries lined up yesterday at the scouting combine to unveil reasons why the future will reveal a different path.

But the fact of the matter is, over the past couple years, the Pats haven't just ended their opponents' seasons, they've crippled some foes, leaving them reeling for months and, in certain cases, years to come.

It is often held against the Pats that the AFC has been fairly weak in the Belichick era, but that fails to reckon with how their dominance forces teams into idiotic short term decision making.  The Falcons--who just blew up a coaching staff that had a Super Bowl won--are a perfect example of that.
