Are Patriots the Spurs of the NFL?

BY foxsports • February 3, 2015

Are the New England Patriots the San Antonio Spurs of the NFL? The parallels between these two incredible organizations are numerous, and with New England winning Sunday's Super Bowl, comparing the two only feels natural.

It is a remarkable run of sustainability and consistency provided by an invested owner, a single-minded coach and a franchise player who have remained entrenched in their belief that the Patriot Way works. No wonder that 848 miles away in Texas, the San Antonio Spurs, the gold standard of consistency in professional basketball, watch closely as the Patriots approach another potential championship. New England's football team has long been the topic of discussion internally in the Spurs' offices as a franchise that mirrors their own. And, say Spurs officials, they figure they can learn something from the New England football team.
