Hey Packers nut, what are you doing being an unloyal fan? I thought a person could only root for one team or otherwise they aren't loyal according to you. Seems you've found a way to root for more than one team.


Anyway, lets get the count straight. Its 2 straight, unless you decide to NOT COUNT THE ONLY GAMES THAT MATTER. Pats fans I guess are still in denial that Eli Manning b*tch slapped their "perfect" season dreams.

Default Unofficial Official "Pats" thread

I see all the other teams with their threads going on, and now that I am over the intial dismay of losing the best QB to ever play the game (I don't have to tell you who), I'll start my own. 12-4 is still an obtainable record for this team, they have the NFC West this year for crying out loud! The Pats' D is starting to show it's age, but there is a sprinkling of young players making their way in. If Matt throws it up to Moss at least twice a game, and the running game remains solid, it could be interesting. In Bill I trust, and the Pats will make a run this year, even without the best QB to ever wear the NFL shield. Thats right................I said it!

I didn't know john elway was on the patriots. I absolutely hate the patriots, but I hate tom brady more. I would like to see them do well this year, to prove that brady is more of a system QB. if a college WR can lead them to 12-4, that states to me that brady is average.

2-time Super Bowl MVP, League MVP and Season TD pass record holder - yeah, he's average. The fact is that Brady won 3 Superbowls with average talent around him on offense. If Brady had played on the Colts with the receivers that Manning had for those years, he'd be working on his second hand of superbowl rings.

That being said, I think 12-4 is a little lofty of a goal. I'd be happy with 10-6, maybe 11-5. That Dolphins game was a wake up call. Although, maybe they are better than expected after their win against the Chargers this weekend.

thanks for that unbiased review REDSOXFAN. you mean when he broke mannings record last year. yeah, didn't he have like 1500 pass attempts, and he also played more games in manning. manning sat out the games when they secured the playoff spot. the classless patriots put brady in just to break the records. they risked him getting hurt, so I guess his getting hurt this year is karma from last year.

I disagree. You keep your QB in the games, especially when you have the best QB to ever adjust his cup. If you don't, one might lose their momentum, and lose the first game in the playoffs.

I think that brady has always had a good supporting cast. great o line and great defense. a great o line made mark rypien good for a few years. they kept him in there strictly to break the record. they ran up scores and threw non stop to get that record. his passer rating was still worse than mannings, and a manning beat him in the important game. like I said, if tony eason was still your quarterback, I wouldn't mind so much. this team just has a dark cloud of conspiracy over it and I think billicheck is a jerk. plus I hate their uniforms. the old ones were so much cooler.

Pats will be fine this year. They are transitioning to some younger players & by the end of the year will be in the mix. I think 11-5 is doable & if Matt Cassel continues to improve they may win a playoff game or two. I like the way he got more recievers into the action on Sunday. Still has alot of improving to do but we are lucky that it is still early in the season and are sitting 3-1.

Obviously, I'm a Pats fan so I am biased but the fact that he was a 2-time Superbowl MVP (could've been 3-time but they gave it to Deion Branch) and a league MVP with the season TD record has nothing to do with bias - it's common knowledge.

How did Brady play more games than Manning? Last time I checked the season has been 16 games for a while! Manning started all 16 games. Brady had more passing attempts (578 to 497) but Manning had a solid running game in Edgerrin James (2000+ yards from scrimmage and didn't need to pass as much. I also seem to remember Manning "actively" going for Marino's record - meaning not sitting out too much (I could be wrong).

I understand you don't like the Pats and Belichek, blah, blah, blah. But you can't deny the fact that Brady will be one of the top 5 QBs of all time when he retires. It's too difficult to argue who's best.
