The New England Patriots built a habit of winning Super Bowls when Tom Brady was still in town. Years later, the team hasn't won a single playoff game without him. Robert Kraft needs that to change this upcoming season.
While meeting with a few reporters on Tuesday morning, Kraft voiced his frustration with Bill Belichick and the Patriots for not winning a playoff game in the past three years.
The Patriots owner clearly isn't happy.
“It bothers me that we haven’t been able to win a playoff game in the last three years," he said.
Fans completely agree. The difference is Robert Kraft has the power to do something about it.
One fan thinks the first step for Kraft to build a playoff contender is to upgrade at cornerback.
"Right now the best Patriots CB is Butler in a division that includes Diggs and Hill. Unless they make a massive upgrade they are staring at this drought lasting at least this season and probably another 2-3," a fan said.
Another fan thinks Robert is to blame here, considering he's one of the ones shaping New England's roster on a yearly basis.
"You did this Bob, you did this," one fan wrote.
It's also worth pointing out fans are just as frustrated.
"You and me both, Bob. You and me both," Pats Pulpit tweeted.
Robert Kraft and the Patriots didn't make any big splashes in free agency. Perhaps they'll make headlines during the 2022 NFL Draft.
