When it comes to the smartest franchises in the NFL, the New England Patriots are at the top.
And it all starts with Tom Brady, who has become one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of the game.
Everyone can say all they want about "Spygate," but the fact remains, every team tries to take a competitive advantage. The Patriots just took it a little too far.
Think back to the signing of Randy Moss, who had the best season of his career with the Patriots. While many were concerned with how he might act, he conformed to the way the Patriots did things and had a great few years in New England.
Another thing that makes the Patriots smart is the fact that they always seem to have a multitude of draft picks at their disposal.
Regardless of whether they use them or not, the Patriots always put themselves in the right position to make the right draft choices.
This year, it was drafting wide receiver Aaron Dobson out of Marshall. He gives Brady a true vertical threat he's lacked since Moss.
Now, if only Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez can stay healthy for an entire season.
