Having January and February off is an unfamiliar feeling for Pats fans. What do we do now? Not watch the NFL playoffs? Pick a new favorite team for the next few weeks?
It appears that the majority of New Englanders have turned to their lifetime allegiance with Tom Brady. If the Pats can’t bring it home, TB12 getting his seventh ring would be the next best thing.
A poll I took on Twitter a few days ago confirmed this notion:
Patriots fans: Are you rooting for Tom Brady to win his 7th ring?

This is mostly due to the fact that Brady is an icon in these parts and will forever have our support. There’s also an element of pettiness due to Bill Belichick’s inability to surround Tom with weapons, especially during his final seasons as a Patriot. Building an elite receiving corps like the one in Tampa would’ve been a great way to reward the greatest quarterback of all-time after nearly two decades of dominance.
What are your thoughts on the playoffs? Are you rooting for TB12?
