Patriots Dynasty Officially Dead, Says Tony Romo
The Patriots dynasty is officially dead, says Tony Romo.
The Tennessee Titans handed New England a stunning 20-13 loss on Saturday night.
Even though everyone in the stadium knew that the road team’s entire offensive plan was simply to rush the ball down New England’s throat, the Patriots top-ranked defense seemed powerless from preventing the inevitable.
Following the outing, Romo made a bold prediction regarding the losing side: their dynasty was over.
According to Romo, this is the offseason where head coach Bill Belichick, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and quarterback Tom Brady all go their separate ways.

“It feels that way, and to me, it feels that you’re going to see the three of them [Brady, Belichick, and McDaniels] go separately,” Romo said.
McDaniels seems like the likeliest to go elsewhere this summer. He has multiple interviews lined up for various head coaching vacancies, and it odds are he will land at least one of those jobs.
Belichick has been unclear on his status, but if he does not retire, he will stay with New England to coach one more year.
Brady is the biggest question mark. He has been linked repeatedly in recent weeks with the LA Chargers, and neither he nor the Patriots have committed to one another for another season.
The only thing Brady has acknowledged publicly up to this point is that he does not plan on retiring.
“I would say [retirement is] pretty unlikely,” he said.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m not going to predict it. No one needs to make choices at this point. I love playing football. I love playing for this team.
“I’ve loved playing for this team for two decades and winning a lot of games. I don’t know what it looks like moving forward, so we’ll just take it day to day.”
Will Romo’s prediction ultimately prove to be correct? We will likely get an answer once and for all at some point in the next few weeks.
