He was the last bad head coach we had. Mostly because his final season was so bad we got to draft second, picking up Drew Bledsoe. That, and Orthwein trying to move to Saint Louis, thus forcing Kraft to buy everything out to protect the team, led to where the Patriots are today.  Since him we had Parcells, Carroll (who actually had the highest winning percentage up to that time of any Patriots coach, at 6 games above .500!)) and Darth Hoodie, who has coached 30% of the Patriots all time games and has 40% of the Patriots all time wins.

He may have lost, but he was entertaining.

Pats picked first that year, Ryan "KNOCK IT OFF" Lief went second.


I know, a Pats fan dropping knowledge before 2001, amazing isn't it?

Rick Mirer was second.

Leaf was drafted in 1998.

I could've sworn Mirer went first. Or maybe it's just because people were second guessing passing him up back then....

Please don't confuse Rick Mirer with Ryan Leaf.  Mirer merely failed to live up to expectations.
