​Finally, some good news for the New England Patriots (can't believe we're saying it, either).

After the Patriots lost the Super Bowl in heartbreaking fashion to the Philadelphia Eagles, it was expected that they would lose both coordinators as well. Matt Patricia signed his contract with the Detroit Lions on schedule. 

Josh McDaniels, on the other hand, has shockingly chosen a different route.

This is truly a stunning development.

According to Adam Schefter, McDaniels was convinced to stay by Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who contacted the Pats OC after their recent Super Bowl defeat.

What was said in those meetings is unknown as of now, but we do know that money talks, and Kraft has plenty of it.

The Colts opening wasn't as sexy as some of the other vacancies around the league, but the chance to coach Andrew Luck was appetizing to an offensive mind like McDaniels. Yet, he's chosen to stay with the system and surroundings he knows best.

And just like that, New England is loading up for yet another run for glory. It took less than a week.
