Complete with player interviews, behind-the-scenes stories never told before, and content provided by several Patriots players themselves, Drive for Five provides a unique level of insight and access to the story behind the New England Patriots’ 2016 season.
Former Patriots linebacker Rosevelt Colvin once compared his old team to a soap opera, and that was never more the case than in 2016. The simple truth is that this was one of the most eventful seasons in an already eventful franchise history.
From the fallout around Deflategate and losing their MVP-caliber quarterback for the first four games of the season to the support that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick showed for Donald Trump, there was a high level of drama all year long around the team, all the way until the most dramatic Super Bowl finish of all time. But honestly, the potentially divisive Trump Question and the Deflategate saga and the ensuing fallout were just a small part of it all.
There was the midseason trade of dynamic playmaker Jamie Collins for going off-script, the loss of all-world tight end Rob Gronkowski to another season-ending injury, the witticisims of Martellus Bennett, and the injuries to backup QBs Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett.
But a remarkable run to the title – and the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history – ended up giving an emotional Brady his fifth Super Bowl ring and put the capper on a most memorable season.
