Have to agree. I, personally didn't like him as a quarterback. I think he is an arrogant jerk and the first of the season couldn't stand him but he has turned out to be really good and knows his football. I also happen to like Aikman.

I can respect his loyalty and he was honest to admit that the Patriots are tainted under Brady and Bellichick for cheating. And that's the second point, they are a team of cheats and all of their accomplishments under these two have got to be questioned. How many rings do they really deserve? Not 5. 2? Maybe 3? Maybe none?
I have a coworker who for a whole freaking year has gone around with a constipated and very pissed off look on his face after them losing to the eagles. Now today he was crowing about 13 AFC championships. If he has a blow up Tom Brady doll to sleep with I would believe it.
I'm waiting for the day when this gets exposed and the myth that these bums are football Gods is destroyed. Lifetime bans from the Hall Of Fame, disbanding the franchise, renaming the team and stripping them of their championships.
And don't forget that as shady and underhanded as these guys are they are EXTREMELY prey to blackmail and them throwing a game would make the Vegas bookmakers a ton of money.
Waa! Not My pWatwiots! Waa!

After the Patrtiots win the Super Bowl (and they WILL win), no way Brady or coach going to retire. Why would they? They still have plenty left in the tank.

That's what everyone said last year.

I hardly ever watch a football game to be honest - I just am not into sports. But my son loves the Pats, and I watched this game with him. It really was amazing.

Yup, fraud fans. Just like all of the Cowboys fans that probably couldn't even find Texas on a map.

Strange comment. Everyone knows where Texas is, AND New England.

Those are four prestigious franchises but the Pats have changed the meaning of "prestigious franchise". All of those organizations are now a tier below the Patriots, who have created a near-20 year dynasty...

I feel so confident saying this level of dominance will never touch the NFL again...

Brady didn't play his best game but in the clutch he was a killer, as always. Montana used to be the high bar for quarterbacking, Walsh used to be the high bar for coaching, Lombardi, there are other names, but these guys in New England make previous greats look "good". The Patriots have redefined what dominance means...
In all fairness, I hate the Patriots and my bias against them isn't something I hide. I don't consider the Patriots the greatest dynasty ever in the NFL, I consider them the longest lasting dynasty.

The Patriots have won 5 superbowls since 2000. They won those 5 by a combined total of 19 points. They lost 3 by a combined 17 points. So they have won just over half of their appearances, and win or lose each game has gone down to late in the 4th quarter, or OT.

The 49ers never lost a superbowl and never allowed more than 16 points in a superbowl, New England has never held a team to 16 or fewer points in a superbowl in 8 appearances. Cowboys won 3 superbowls in 4 years and every playoff victory they won by 10 points or more. Both the 49ers and Cowboys won at least 1 superbowl in very dominant fashion, blowing their opponent out so bad they looked like they were playing a college team.

New England has the longest running dynasty, but they have never dominated their opponent in the superbowl and they have lost 3, hopefully 4 coming this year.
