Rob Parker: Defense and Kicking Won Patriots Six Super Bowls, Not Tom Brady

Rob Parker: “You can talk about Tom Brady and all his accolades, but these are the FACTS… In the Patriots’ last three Super Bowl wins – the Seahawks, Atlanta, and the Rams; neither of those teams scored in the fourth quarter. The DEFENSE totally shut them down. The Rams had the fifth greatest offense in the history of the National Football League, and they scored THREE points. In that game Brady had no touchdowns, a pick, and a fumble. If you were to talk about their first three Super Bowls, you would be remiss, and misguided if you didn’t bring up Adam Vinatieri. He was so good he was named to the 'NFL Top 100 All-Time Team'. If you go back and look at those scores, all of those games were decided by three points or less on some kick by Adam Vinatieri. Can we acknowledge that they had the GREATEST KICKER EVER?? If he misses three field goals, would Tom Brady be considered the ‘Greatest Quarterback Ever’? The Falcons were up 28-3 and Atlanta didn’t score again. Bill Belichick is in charge of the defense. They were double-digit underdogs to the ‘Greatest Show on Turf’ and shut them down. When I look at the Patriots, I think of Adam Vinatieri for the first 3 titles and Bill Belichick for the last 3 titles MORE than I think of Tom Brady.” (Full Segment Above)

Listen to Rob Parker explain why he thinks Adam Vinatieri and Bill Belichick were the main characters of the nearly two-decade long New England Patriots dynasty, and why he credits Belichick with winning three of the Super Bowls, Vinatieri with three as well, and Tom Brady with ZERO.

Check out the video above as Rob details why he doesn’t think Brady had a lot to do with New England’s six Super Bowls, and why elite defense and Hall of Fame kicking was the biggest reason why they had so much esteemed success.
