New England Patriots 2023-24 NFL Season Recap

New England Patriots NFL Season Recap

It’s now been four years since Tom Brady picked up and left for Tampa Bay, and the New England Patriots remain negative steps away from finding his replacement. Upper management took a shot in the 2021 NFL Draft by selecting Mac Jones with their first round pick at No. 15, but the decision to do so hasn’t bared much fruit. In fact, it can now be said that the Alabama product was a huge bust after getting benched four times in favor of Bailey Zappe this past NFL betting season. The latter wasn’t much better playing to a 68.7 QB rating by way of throwing for 1,272 yards and 6:9 TD/INT ratio through ten games and six starts.

That being said, Bill Belichick just might’ve left the franchise with a parting gift with it still unknown as to where “The Hoodie” will coach next season at the time of penning this recap. In managing just four overall wins and six covers against the closing NFL odds, the Pats will enter the 2024 NFL Draft owners of the third overall pick. With this year’s draft chockfull of premiere frontend QB talent, this might be the season New England finally snags a suitable replacement to help the Foxboro fan base forget about the good ‘ol days with “The GOAT.”

Whoever it is, hopefully he can insert a jolt to an offense that wasn’t even as fun to watch as paint dry. The Patriots ranked No. 30 overall and got next to nothing from a passing game that averaged just over 180 yards per game and accounted for 16 overall touchdowns. For you math majors out there that’s fewer than one per game, and that isn’t gonna cut it in this day and age of the NFL! Rookie Demario Douglas led the wide receiver corps with 49 receptions that were turned into 561 yards, but the first-year pass catcher failed to get into the end zone. Veteran tight end Hunter Henry proved to be the Pats most productive target – when healthy – reeling in a team-high six touchdowns.

Making the offense’s job even tougher was a backfield spearheaded by an injury-riddled and inconsistent Rhamondre Stevenson. Just when the third-year back seemed to finally get back on track for his fantasy and player prop supporters, he succumbed to the injury bug and missed the final five games of the season. In the end, he went for 857 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns which was 604 yards and two tuddies fewer than what was produced the prior season. Due to the offense’s premiere ball carrier coming up a no-show, New England failed to rush for an average of 100 yards per game!

I couldn’t help but gut bust laugh out loud when I saw linemakers open the Patriots with a 7.5-game win total. Way too much respect was being given to Bill Belichick’s team that shared the division with three teams in the Bills, Dolphins, and Jets who were all favored to qualify for the playoffs at the outset of the season. Though New York ultimately failed to do so, New England still went on to grossly fail to exceed its win total which allowed me to cash one of my easiest futures investments of the season.

New England Patriots 2024 Offseason

Where does one even start to attempt figuring out what the Patriots do this offseason? I personally don’t believe Belichick returns to the sideline to coach the team a 25th straight season. With Mike Vrabel surprisingly getting axed in Tennessee following the conclusion of the regular season, it would hardly come off as a shock to see him return to his roots considering eight of his 14 played seasons occurred in New England. His players always seemed to put forth their best effort for him while in Nashville, so I think he would be a good fit back in Foxboro. Whoever acquires his services will be lucky to have him!

Once that dilemma is resolved, I think it’s pretty clear as day that the new GM – or Belichick – will be jumping back into the quarterback pool. Provided it doesn’t trade up to acquire the services of Caleb Williams, Drake Maye will likely be there for the taking at No. 3. While he doesn’t possess the flash of the perceived No. 1 pick in the draft, Maye is more of the prototypical pocket passer that spearheaded New England into becoming a dynasty since the turn of the century. It’s anyone’s guess how the top end of the draft ultimately plays out as deep and talented this year’s QB pool looks to be. What we do know is that the 2024 NFL Draft will conclude with one of the top four donning Patriots red and blue.

Founded in 1960 as the Boston Patriots, this franchise was a charter member of the American Football League. Since that year, they have shared the same division with the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills. The Miami Dolphins joined the division in 1966.

New England operated on a shoestring budget for the first 35 years. But when Robert Kraft took control of the team in the mid-1990s, the entire culture of the franchise changed. In 2000 Kraft hired Bill Belichick to run the franchise, and the results have been historic. New England has won six Super Bowl championships and nine AFC championships in the Kraft and Belichick era.

Quarterback Tom Brady became the GOAT of his position for Kraft and Belichick. His departure to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 led to that franchise winning the Super Bowl in Brady’s first season. Brady’s championship in Tampa fuels Belichick’s fire to build a new dynasty with Mac Jones.
