There's clearly a problem with the Patriots offense… at least, Tom Brady seems to think so. After last Thursday’s win over the New York Giants, a game in which the Patriots had their second highest scoring output of the season, Brady made waves throughout New England with his response to a question asking for his feelings on the Patriots offense.
The New England Patriots moved to 6-0 last week after a win against the Giants, but unfortunately, the health of the roster continues to be an issue. With Matt Lacosse, Jakob Johnson and Josh Gordon getting hurt in the game, the list of injured players for the Patriots only got longer and the team was left with more question marks at certain positions than before. These multitude of injuries have already massively impacted things for the Patriots this season and will they continue to drastically change how the roster is managed as the season progresses.
Going in to the 2001 season the Patriots fans had rather low expectations of the team. They had gone 5-11 the year before and fans were starting to wonder if trading for Belichick was good move. The year 2001 was galvanizing not only for the Patriots as a team but America as a nation.
This chapter is more or less meant to introduce people to the Patriots from the beginning.

Locals submitted ideas for the team name and on February 20th, 1960 and the Boston Patriots was soon chosen. Artist Phil Bissel created the iconic original Pat Patriot logo.
The New England Patriots roster took another big hit on Wednesday afternoon as Jim McBride reported that the team will be placing Kicker Stephen Gostkowski on Injured Reserve. Further reports from Adam Schefter have confirmed that Gostkowski will be getting season ending surgery on his left hip. While it is easy to have recency bias and point to Gostkowski’s struggles, it is important to remember that no Kicker besides Gostkowski has been active for the Patriots since Shayne Graham filled in for injury in 2010.
