Guess not........

So, it's going to be New England against The NY football Giants..... Another Boston vs. New York thing.

Man, I HATE this writers strike! This would be the perfect time for Saturday Night Live.

He didn't have Tom and the Brady Bunch.
If only Jerry Jones decided to have Randy Moss on the team..... one can only dream, now.

If the Pats don't win this game, what a HUGE letdown that would be for them and their fans. At 18-0, it's almost as if they deserve this game for going unbeaten the whole season. I'm a DOLPHINS fan, but I'll be rooting for the Pats. I do like the giants moxy though. They have certainly earned this trip and could very well pull off the win. It should be a great game; I predict a close score with the Patriots coming out on top.

I guess I'm one of the ones who could care less about seeing the Pats go 19-0. If they do it will be a great accomplishment. But it will also cause all their fans to endlessly claim they are the greatest team of all time, which is nothing more than subjective perception.

While I would say going undefeated is quiet a big deal, it is not an automatic indicator of the best team ever. Otherwise, the 1972 Dolphins were the best team ever so far and would be tied with the Pats as the best ever from here on out and anyone else who eventually does it again.

I still think the 85 Bears and the 89 SF 49ers were the best 2 teams ever. Not perfect in the regular season, but utterly dominated all post season games. Chicago postseason outscored opponents 91-10. SF outscored postseason opponents 126-26.

Right now, I would say the Pats are tied with several as the best regular season team of all time, with the obvious record for wins. It helps they were in a division where they played 2 doormat teams twice for 4 easy wins (Jets, Dolphins). Much like the Dolphins of 72 played in a very weak division.

Default New England's off season

The upcoming offseason for the New England patriots should be interesting. There will be changes but how big will these changes be? Will Junior Seau retire?, will Tedy Bruschi retire? will Randy Moss sign with another team?, should they sign some more veterans? or should they go with a younger movement?. How will this game affect Tom Brady? And how about their Coach? Remember Mike Martz of the Saint Louis Rams? He took over the team after Dick Vermil retired. He led the team to Super Bowl 36 as huge favorites, but they were upset by the Patriots. Shortly after, Martz's relationship with his bosses turned sour and he resigned in 2005. Will this loss affect Bellicheck in the same way?And keep in mind this. in the past 6 seasons, only the Seattle Seahawks have returned to the playoffs one year after losing the super bowl. Will New England return to the way they were this season and in seasons past? Some will say New England will be back, others may say the dynasty is over.I personally think they will be back in the Super Bowl in the near future but, stranger things have happened. Only time will tell what is in store for the New England Patriots.

And don't forget about this investigation about how far back the Spygate thing goes. That could have some major consequences on the Pats if it turns out to be true.
