, the Patriots had some personnel losses after last season. Just like most seasons since Tom Brady has quarterbacked the team, the Patriots are among the Super Bowl favorites.New England never lets a free agency, retirement or any other kind of departure get in its way.So while the Patriots must replace Rob Gronkowski, Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson, Malcolm Brown, Jared Veldheer, Trent Brown Byron Cowart Jersey Boys
, Brian Flores and others, they know how to overcome attrition.Linebacker Kyle Van Noy credits Bill Belichick and the “Patriot Way.”“Bill does a really good job of the culture being set with the players that have been there for their tenures,” Van Noy told Willie McGinnest on NFL Network. “Like Patrick Chung, Dont'a Hightower, Devin McCourty, Tom, they’ve been there for a while, Matthew Slater. Those guys have already been passed on from your generation White Duke Dawson Jerseys

We all have the same goal in mind, and that’s just to win.”Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have the greatest coach and the greatest quarterback in history. The Patriots don’t have another Gronkowski on their roster, but with Brady as their quarterback, there is no reason to believe they will do anything other than what they always have done with Brady as their quarterback.The same can be said for the Patriots defense after Belichick did not name a defensive coordinator to replace Flores.

The Patriots clinched their 11th straight playoff berth with Sunday’s win over the Bengals and they are closing in on their 11th straight AFC East title as well.Putting that run together with the larger goals the Patriots have for the season might lead some to shrug their shoulders at the smaller accomplishments.

This is level playing field. It’s not like we ever get top-five picks, we play the easiest schedules. The whole league is meant to bring everyone back to 8-8 on the year. The fact we’ve qualified for the playoffs 11 straight years, these things are hard to do.”The Patriots can sew up the division by beating the Bills next Saturday and then they’ll move their full attention to achieving their postseason goals.
