At this point the legacy has been written....its just the final numbers that are left to be told. Honestly, Tom Brady, Bill Bellicheck, and New England will always be known for the most dominant stretch of football in NFL history. Whatever the outcome was and will be its just numbers....they've already set the narrative long ago and just continue to add to it. When they walk away and the team returns to normalcy people will look back and recognize NE, its QB, and coach as all time greats.....sure there will be arguments about greatest but they will always involve them...and sure there are other story lines to follow with them...but that just adds to the drama.....it would make for a great tell all.....unfortunately it will never be written....well at least not in full truth but what that franchise has done and continues to do transcends all the major sports and others will try to immolate it for a long time to come. But yeah..the final score didn't matter....its just another W in a long long line of them.
