how about 'em patriots

Discussion in 'All Other Sports' started by sambãd5, Jan 6, 2008.

  1. now, regadless of your opinions on american football, a season of 16-0 in a competiton that competative, with (3?) games to go for a perfect season, which would be there 4th or 5th superbowl win IN A ROW is unbelivable. talk about good management. a salarycap in EVERY OTHER SPORT would not produce a winning record like new england. i cannot get over it. 16 wins, no losses, 4 consecutive winning seasons in a row with a salary cap. its ment to stop this from happening!!! a perfect season in the nfl hasent happenend since the 76? dolphins but i dont know any major sport that would have this many consecutive competiton wins.

    I never get to watch the full games, so i just check out the highlights on NFL.com but it looks like a one man team.
    There were a couple of occasions (in the past couple of months) that the patriots were in real trouble only to have Brady throw them right back in the winning seat.

    It is very impressive indeed.

    Now, the main question is: Will they choke on the way to the superbowl?

    No, they won't choke. They aren't that sort of team. They've won a superbowl already.
    Their from New England, not New Zealand.

    f*** Shady Brady and Bill Belicheat (Look it up on Youtube)

    And it's not like the Patriots never choke... no, no, no, it's not like Brady has thrown picks on final drives the last 2 seasons in the playoff's which have sealed their fate, including a interception to Marlin Jackson last year which capped off the greatest collapse in AFC Championship Gane History

    LOL jealous are we? Every team cheats difference is the Pats got caught. Its not like videotaping the jets had any effect on them going 16 and 0.

    As for 1 man team thats a bit harsh on the likes of Moss, Welker, Maroney etc

    The Patriots were very steady yesterday. Close game in the first half before they pulled away. Despite the closeness in the first half the Patriots never had that panick look to them...they just steadily went through their routines......very professional indeed.

    So let me preface this by saying that I absolutely, evoquivicably, deplore, despise, and hate the New England Patriots...

    That now out of the way, I must say that over the last few years, the Patriots have been the standard-bearers for the National Football League and their dominance has been wholly impressive from a football-watching point of view. Their ability to stay true to their methodology and long-term team management while maintaining a high level of performance on the field of play has been interesting to watch. This team is always prepared and their players always give their best even when it does not appear to be enough; even so, this season, the Patriots have found ways to win games when they needed to and dominated the rest.

    16-0 is probably the most impressive display of sporting excellence I have ever seen; okay, let me now say that this declaration applies to American sports and not sports in other countries that I've also followed closely. While I do not think that this team would win in a playoff against some of the greatest teams of the modern era (from the 1980's to now), I do believe that this level of excellence will not be matched for at least a generation or two.

    As for the remainder of the playoffs leading to the Super Bowl, I do not envision the Patriots losing either the AFC Championship game nor the Super Bowl regardless who they wind up playing. This season has just been too dominant and too focused for that. San Diego will be a much weaker team and have to go into a very hostile environment without having two of its biggest weapons at full health. That does not bode well for anything resembling a close, hard-fought championship match-up.
     
  10. like i said in my 1st post, the record makes it special. i mean, the amount of money throwen at this sport. how developed it is (well in usa anyway) and the amount of pressure these guys are under. i mean i wouldnt go screaming around town if they did a perfect season, as the crusaders did it in the super12, and auckland just did it in the npc. BUT. neither have won their last 4 competitons WITH a salary cap. thats what makes it so so good. belive it or not i might actually watch the superbowl.

    ripper (or any other nzer) what time is it on here, and what day and what channel?

    If you want to watch NFL you have to have Sky because it is on ESPN generally you can see the game and all the build up on monday and tuesday (sunday and monday night football). Its on at around 1.00pm to 4.00pm.

    sambãd5 - you said it would be there 4th or 5th superbowl win in a row. Thats not right, they where not in the superbowl last year. That was the colts Vs Beers. Colts won ofcourse... however that was a crappy super bowl to watch, i personally find the colts and the beers a boaring team to watch and im glad they are both out.

    GOOOOOO PACKERS!!!! trust me they will win!

    We only get the AFC Playoff Games - so we will get Patriots vs the Faggotering Chargers - think it's on Monday.

    And lol at the Colts being a boring a team to watch - this years Patriots are the exact clone of the Colts when they are fully fit (it took Brady 50 more passing attempts to beat Mannings TD record as well).

    jinxed_nz Guest

    Im not saying that the colts are a bad team im just saying that i dont find them that interesting. I think it is because they normally just cruse through most of there games and never have the need to try nething fancy.

    How bout the Cowboys loss?? who saw that comming? I was fully expecting a cowboys v packers NFC playoff. Im sure that Manning wont pull it off at lambeau field. Heres hoping neway.
    BTW ripper, why do we only get the AFC playoff's?

    Fox Network owns the NFC Rights while ABC (Who own ESPN) owns the AFC Rights. That's why whenever you see the NFC Playoff highlights on Sportscenter they have different logos, on screen onlays and all that jazz.

    jinxed_nz Guest

    So howcome we see NFC matchups in the season? man it doesnt make sence. Too much damn advertising. Don't they even have different ball makers on different nights? ie Wilson on Sunday Night and Spaulding on Sat?

    Because ABC/ESPN own the rights to the Sunday Night and Monday Night Matchup's during the regular season. Which is why they are only two games we see a week in NZ as NFL Network, CBS, NBC and Fox all have the rest of the regular season games locked up.

    Regular Season Games and Play Off's were sold off as two different lots I guess.

    Well to counter that last point I could say that the Pats have played 6 playoff teams in their schedule this year whilst the I think colts only played 2, during mannings 49 touchdown season
     
  18. Ripper

    Ripper Guest

    Nah, they played 5.

    Packers, Vikings, Patriots, Donkey's and the Chargers.

    Manning could've easily hit 55 touchdowns at least if Dungy had him going for it on 4th down in the with 5 minutes left in the final quarter while they were 40 points up, rather than just pounding it out with the Edge - I mean, in the Ravens game that year Manning had a chance to tie the record, but instead took a knee less than 20 yards away.

    Brady had an all time season, but in my mind it doesn't match Marino in 1984 (5000 yards) or Manning in 2004 (Similar numbers, but in much less attempts and didn't have to run up the score to get it)

    That was awesome!. That weave, that pass, that catch, that touchdown, what a finish!.

    I'm a bit of a Pats fan but I couldn't help but cheer when Eli put the dagger in.
