Put the Patriots in the NFC after 2005 and see what happens. They may get at most 2 SB appearances and that was down years in the NFC like 2007 and 2014/15.
Or put the Saints in the same division with the Patriots after Payton/Brees.

Re: 2nd SB Win If

I don't see Brees slowing down. I do see Brady slowing down. Brady's offensive line is not as good as it has been in the past and Brady quits on some plays.

Brees' arm strength is better after the surgery and rehabilitation.
In fact, I would say his accuracy and arm strength are at 2011 levels. Maybe his training regiment should be a template for other QB's.

With this new era of the NFL, quarterbacks, and rules to protect the quarterbacks, I can foresee QB's playing into their 40's... possibly 45, comfortably, if they are pocket QB's and have decent offensive lines.

Finally, this would not be the first time NFL quarterbacks have played into their 40's. Ya'll need to look up George Blanda and his years in the NFL and with the Oakland Raiders. He led the Raiders to the AFL championship game... they would cut him, and even in 1970 the Raiders would pick him up to play relief and win like 4 of the last 5 games, and push the Raiders into a championship.

BTW, Blanda was also the kicker as well as the QB. Blanda finally retied after the '75 season when he still started games at the age of 48 years old.

The Tuck Rule made Brady. Changed the course of NFL history.
It’s on the same level as the MISSED PI CALL.

The league wanted the Patriots in the Super Bowl that year because of 9-11.
