It's not just the Patriots.... Show me the last elite RB that won a Super Bowl. The most you can give is Lynch, but he was not "Beast mode" for most of the playoffs and certainly not the Super Bowl. For over a decade now, teams have won with just good backs or a committee approach. Elite RBs are a dying breed, I have no idea why there is this weird sudden resurgence the last couple of years that scouts believe taking an RB in the top 5 will be worth it. None of these dudes ever get rings.
