  1. Honestly, as a lifelong Pats fan, I have to - at this point - admit that the Dynasty was 70% Brady, 30% Belichick. Great coaching is essential, but no coach says, "OK, make sure you go out there and throw a critical interception at the worst possible time to ensure that we lose this one," LOL... Maybe that'll change in the coming years, but one season removed from the divorce, I don't see how anyone could logically disagree. Also worth noting that Belichick built his reputation on defense, not offense. Brady just epitomizes the "it" factor. Not something
  2. Manning is definitely (IMO) ahead of Montana. As you guys hopefully know by now, I'm 100% in the Brady Camp but have a ton of respect for Peyton.
  3. I had every intention of stopping in with an olive branch. Sorry if you think I'm off-base. Didn't intend to come here to pick an online fight. I'm too old and tired now to argue with strangers online. I don't expect a "warm welcome." But I started posting on this board in 2003 and I like a lot of posters, and their knowledge, very much. But, for some reason, there are people who get enjoyment or satisfaction from trying to devalue the achievements of athletes who don't play for their favorite teams. I don't get it, but that's OK. It's just ironic since I've been told repeatedly wh
  4. I applaud and appreciate those of you who are realistic about this whole situation. When Manning went to Denver, most of you were instantly Broncos fans. I never said anything was wrong with that, and I can totally relate with Brady having gone to Tampa and accomplishing what he did this year. I'll always be a Patriots fan, but once they were clearly out of contention, I was rooting for Brady all the way (and Gronk as well). Whether people like it or not, Brady IMMEDIATELY brought a winning aura to a franchise that has traditionally been known as a perennial loser. He is not the m
  5. So bitter, and so obviously slanted... despite facts. I actually feel legitimately so very sorry for you living this way. Seriously. It's just a sport. At this point, you just look ridiculously silly for spewing this type of garbage.
  6. Sshhhh, sshhh... don't worry. Brady is poised to set new records in virtually all significant statistical categories. Except interceptions. That's one Favre record that is 100% safe.
  7. The Patriots are coming up on the more difficult stretch of their schedule, so we will find out just how good their defense is. But with the exception of Buffalo (5-1), they haven't played a close game all year. You play whoever is on your schedule, teams don't control that. But their defense has dominated these weaker teams. I've been a fan since the 1970s and so far this is the best defense I've ever seen in New England. That includes the units in the early 2000s that gave the Colts such big headaches. As for the AFC East... it doesn't matter: The Patriots are 71-19
  8. Bummer. I just feel bad for him as a person. To have (apparently) gotten a handle on his personal demons, just to end the season this way, is a tough break for him.
  9. The problem with this logic is that it assumes backups are all created equal. In 2008, Cassel played himself into a multi-million dollar contract with KC and made a Pro Bowl. Garoppolo is something like 14-2 as a starter with most of those games being played as a 49er. Teddy Bridgewater is a former #1 pick with a lot of inherent talent. Point being, none of those guys were awful, and they've all enjoyed relatively successful NFL careers. Curtis Painter and (the corpse of) Kerry Collins are not in the same category as either of those guys as far as backups are
  10. You're a good guy so I'm sorry... this isn't directed at you. I'm just tired of having my character called into question because I grew up in New England. I can only hope that you and others - who have my utmost respect - understand. I wish you all the best.
  11. Yes I'm here because of my psychological insecurities. You nailed it. I mean "clockwork" is a bit of a stretch, since I don't bother posting here anymore because of the ridiculous nature of this board as it relates to the Patriots, but whatever. If it helps you sleep better at night, go with that. I've been personally attacked more times than I can account for, so I won't apologize. The people who knew me 10 years ago on this board know who I am. The rest of you are fair weather, Johnny-come-lately fans whose opinions are meaningless to me.
  12. Yup, this is part of my 10+ year plan to troll you guys. Has nothing to do with the overall quality of your typical Colts fan since 2004. Haha, nothing passive-aggressive here. The funny thing is, Colts fans have basically created what I am at this point. I'm tired of being judged as a human being based on my football rooting interests. I started off being a more balanced and objective fan. Tried to be respectful, tried to be reasonable. But... the overall hostility and nastiness I've received in return has made me realize that being a "nic
  13. Yes. You guys know everything about me as a human being from a few message board posts. Whatever you do, don't actually learn the facts about Jim Irsay and some of the things he's done (at least Kraft hasn't been complicit in anyone's death). It would be way too much for your heightened sensibilities to deal with. He's truly an upstanding human being and I'm just a big, meal old Patriots fan, trying to set you guys straight. My bad.
  14. You guys nailed this on the head. The Patriots signed this guy so they could get some inside info on a team that hasn't beaten them since 2009.
  15. The best part of this is how you guys assume Irsay is above this kind of thing. He's far more of a classless human being than Kraft has ever been.
