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

Post by 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.
Don't look at me, I just work here.

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.

I just knew any NFL forum had to have a thread something like this talking about the dynasty of my NE Patriots. I pretty much agree with the previous post. These have been good times indeed. As good as they've been they could have and should have been better if not for the evil genius of Bellichick. Genius yes but emphasis on evil also. We should have been working on rings 7,8 maybe even 9 if Bellichick payed his players and the Patriots were in just the top 3rd in payroll instead of consistently being in the middle 3rd. We left so many rings on the floor. I'm still not over SB 52 in 2017 when Bellichick made the disastrous and still unexplained decision to bench our starting corner. I sat there dumbfounded for most of the 1st half wondering why in the holy name of hell we couldn't stop them for ****. And then they started announcing Malcolm Butler not playing and showing him suited up standing on the sidelines and then it all became clear. Thats why freakin' Nick Foles was shredding us to death. You simply cannot pull your starting corner out of any game and expect the secondary to perform. Those guys, more than another other sub unit, play in space and depend on knowing the areas each one of them will occupy. What we saw was predictable, a secondary shredded to death. That was ring #7 right there left on the floor.

But that's how it's been with an evil genius as head coach. We've done great things, but because of the evil part we've left rings on the ground. And I still haven't gotten over the Giants beating us twice, once with perhaps the greatest play sequence in SB history with the miracle escape by Manning and even more miraculous helmet catch by David Tyree. I never want to meet the Giants in any SB ever again. There's bad mojo there. Bellichick has the system in his head, and feels he can plug any player into it and the system will come out on top. That keeps you competitive, but players make plays and the ones we let go would've made the plays that would have made the system winning. His narcissism has cost us.

***Hell I forgot all about current news. Brady is gone. I think him and Bellichick were a package. Sure Bellichick helped Brady but Brady's dedication, work ethic and skill helped us win. I actually used to think he was over rated until a few years back. I'm convinced now, he's the GOAT. And with that I think the dynasty is ended. Oh we might win a championship here or there with Bellichick as coach, but I believe Brady is the one that kept us always in the hunt year in and year out. We won't see his like again for awhile I think. He was consistently served chicken **** and made chicken salad out of it. 'Cept for maybe a couple years we had Randy Moss and Gronks kicking ass. Other than that he had a bunch of nonames he was throwing to.

***Phew, not sure why I typed so much.
