The New England Patriots play the New York Giants, couple hours from now are already a dynasty. Win tonight, they become the greatest NFL team ever, much better than the yapping 1972 Dolphins or the 60’s Packers, 70’s Steelers, 80’s 49ers or the 90’s Dallas Cowboys.

A huge part is definitely the personnel Coach Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli, the Patriots VP of Player Personnel, who bring the right players who believe in the team first concept and are willing to put everything out there any given Sunday.
