Wasn't talking about play-off wins. Was talking about regular season wins where their point differential was high, as you stated.
What part of they beat the contenders such as the Gints, Ravens and Colts, by a FG ,and the 45 point wins( which raised the point differential) were against crap, don't you understand?
The point differential in the PO's were 11, 9 and -3. , which is less than a 6 point average.
Not quite the same as in the RS against crappy teams, now was it?
I have literally no idea what you are saying here. The 2007 Patriots did not play the Ravens or Colts in the playoffs. The Ravens were not even a playoff team that year. As I stated previously the Patriots played 6 regular season games against teams that made the playoffs that year and they won by an average of almost 20 points. Sure their margin of victory in the playoffs was smaller. It almost always is. This still doesn't change the fact that saying the 2007 Patriots lacked talent is patently absurd.
2007 pats may have been the most talented team of 20 years.
Yes, since the salary CAP started in 1994 I would give the Pats that title.
The Patriots ran into a buzzsaw that shut down their passing game. Unable to make any adjustments they could only keep spitting into the wind an could only muster up 14 points. Our D, in giving up 17, did as well as they did for most of the season.
Why exactly our O sputtered, and why we couldn't adjust, I don't know, water over the dam at this point but it was our O that must shoulder the responsibility for not securing the perfect season, not the D.
