The Blueprint: How the New England Patriots Beat the System to Create the Last Great NFL Superpower : For years, the New England Patriots were a certifiable joke of a franchise. They were run on the cheap and were once the very example of how not to manage a team. But in the first four months of 2000, everything changed. The hiring of head coach Bill Belichick and Vice President of Player Personnel Scott Pioli and the drafting of quarterback Tom Brady turned the fortunes of the franchise around. And their nontraditional approach to acquiring personnel quickly led to three Super Bowl titles in four seasons. Christopher Price takes the reader inside the franchise to give him a dynamic portrait of a mighty organization at the height of its power. The Blueprint will explore how the Patriots went from the dregs to a dynasty, becoming the gold standard for professional sports franchises everywhere.
