Patriots May Need Emotional Edge to Advance Further in Playoffs (Video)

With the Ravens riding the emotional exit of Ray Lewis into the sunset, it begs the question whether the Patriots need a different kind of edge to find more playoff success.

Although the Pats just concluded a season that many franchises would be proud of, in New England there’s mostly just a sense of what could have been. Likewise, the franchise may have become increasingly unlikable in recent years with Tom Brady emerging as a cover model and Bill Belichick‘s constantly surly attitude. So, that being said, could the Patriots use an emotional rallying point to get them over the hump next postseason?

Check out the video above as Patriots insiders Shalise Manza Young and Jeff Howe argue those very points.
