The 2000s Patriot's dynasty be linked back to one play during the 2001-2002 season. Drew Bledsoe got injured during a basic roll out, giving young buck Tom Brady a chance at quarterback. He took it and never looked back, nabbing win after win en route to multiple Super Bowls and MVPs.
What could've been: There's something telling us that Bledsoe probably wouldn't have kept the starting job for too much longer regardless of injury with his track record. Drew probably would've finished the season for the Pats and led them to some success but no Super Bowl, leaving that open to Oakland, Saint Louis, or Pittsburgh. The legend of Tom Brady would've started a little later. You can't hold back greatness for too long.
