New England Patriots, Brady and Belichick...the best ever..

Postby Parrotpaul » Sun Feb 05, 2017 8:21 pm

The Pats gave the world the most exciting Super Bowls ever in 2014 and tonight. Brady is the GOAT, and Belichick is the best coach and the rest of the team should be proud to have achieved dynastic status. Haters will hate, but the Pats win all the marbles for the fifth time. It's all so very good. :cheers:

Cheers Paul, I agree with you! It is so hard to win any game in the NFL, let alone a playoff game, let alone a super bowl, let alone 5 super bowls! They are both the GOAT's for sure!

I don't mean to minimize what the Patriots did yesterday. And certainly Belichick and Brady are on the very short list of greatest ever at their positions. But as I watched the game I almost started to feel like the whole thing was scripted by Vince McMahon. The complete turnaround from being down 28-3, and then scoring 31 straight points in a little over a quarter, was the closest thing to a professional wrestling match of any football game I've ever seen.

Did he script Hightower's sack...how about Edelman's catch...White's three touchdowns? If you hate to minimize, why did you? That's a rhetorical question. Sorry for your disappointment.

I'm not sure if it was a great game, but starting late in the third quarter the game got really fun to watch. I hope someone coughs up Brady's jersey...that particular jersey belongs in the Hall of Fame Museum. I was kind of in shock for most of last night, but today all I can do is giggle.

I told everyone I was 60/40 in favor of the Patriots. When the Pick 6 happened in the first half, I thought it was over. When you're not upset if either side wins, I enjoyed it all.

It was rigged by crooked east coast football elitit's. Even Vince McMahon would have let Atlanta score once in the second half.

Those are my feelings with every NFL game that doesn't have the Patriots as one of the teams. All I want to watch is a great game...put the Pats in the calculus, and all bets are off. I never make predictions especially in the playoffs. I listened to their first game from Braves Field on the radio in 1960 when I was still in high school, and I suffered through the 85 and 97 Super Bowl losses...then along came Brady and Belichick, and what happened over the next seventeen years made the first forty seasons a vague memory. Boston fans are a ravenous bunch...I grew up with the great Auerbach-Russell Celtics era...a couple of Bruins Stanley cups...the Larry Bird era...the Red Sox in 2004 and other great seasons, but the Pats are like the icing on my fandom cake. I won't live to see Brady's five SB victories topped by anyone...unless Brady wins another. I have no idea what the future will bring to the Pats, but the Brady/Belichick era is as good as it gets in the Super Bowl era of pro football.
