*Fans of New England: We waited 42 years for *our first championship; we waited two years for the second. The 17 players -- 53 players, 17 coaches and the head coach, the heart and soul of our team, showed us what the concept of teamwork is about; and that when that's combined with perseverance and commitment, great things happen. League-high injuries were overcome and we won 15 games in a row -- because of the concept of TEAM.'s era, people celebrate individuals and individual accomplishments; but my family and I are proud of this man, Coach Belichick, who instilled the values of power of TEAM. And because of that today...we have seen a true team and a true champion.
