New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft sat in his office recently and reflected on his team’s accomplishments to begin the millennium.
“At the risk of sounding immodest,” he said, “I believe we are the team of the decade.”
Nothing immodest about it. Facts are facts. In winning three Super Bowls from 2001-04, among numerous other shining accomplishments, New England secured its place as the NFL’s Franchise of the Decade.
