    If the Pats are overrated, why would their playoff losses be shocking?


     I guess if you're a writer you have to write something.

    I am sorry rusty, did your local boston media NOT ask Cowher or Vermeil to comment on Spygate?  Is that NOT bringing up spygate?  Surely, these former coaches didn't come to the booth and ask to speak about spygate, did they? And I think that the individual in question is suggesting that the pats are overrated by being favorites for the SB because of their recent playoff record, not regular season record.  I recall this board laughing at a colts team who had great regular season records but poor postseason records.  With the pats "1 and done" the last 2 years, doesn't this guy make a valid point? That said, you guys should really take a chill pill.  Would you rather have vegas odds on your side or a pundit?  I know which I'd pick.  BTW, I believe the colts were preseason favs last year in vegas.  How'd that work out? Oh and Russ, if you are giving the pats credit for being in the 07 SB, don't you think you should give the colts credit for being in the 10 SB?

    Re: According to Rob Parker ESPN, Pats overrated for SB.

    "The one that bothers me even worse [than the Cowboys] is the New England Patriots, who are still living on the past," Rob Parker said in his debate segment with Skip Bayless. "I know. I've heard it all. They were 14-2 last year. I know. And their last 16 home games, 16-0.

    "But their last two playoff games at home, they both lost -- shocking losses to the Ravens and to the Jets the last two years. I still think people look at the Patriots and think they won last week. They haven't won since 2004. Let's be honest. Look at their playoff run."

    I'm somewhat curious here...Did Rob Parker, anywhere in this segment, actually say who, ya know-Should be a Superbowl Favorite going into the 2011 NFL Season?  So alright, Superbowl Favorite (according to Rob Parker)=Can't be ANY team that has NOT won the Superbowl since 2004.  Also, according to the rationale, Regular Season Wins mean nothing, And I guess (according to Rob Parker), IF you lose 2 playoff games BOTH while you're at Home, then=No Superbowl Favorite (but say, IF you lose just 1 playoff game at home, then don't make the playoffs next year=Yes, you're still in the mix).

    Re: According to Rob Parker ESPN, Pats overrated for SB.

    First off - its a debate segment.  Second, the guy had both bayless and the moderator killing this guy for his comments. 

    Ultimately, he said that the pats are a playoff team (a top 10 team), but that they are seemingly favored every year to win the superbowl.  In fact, at the beginning of the season, the dude in question picked the pats to win the superbowl until they got to the playoffs, then he said they wouldn't beat the Jets. 

    All he was more or less saying was "show me".  This board applies the same perspective to all other teams in the league.  The 3 SB victories in 4 years created this mentality.  Clearly, some of that shine has worn off now that it has been 6 years since 04 and pats fans are coming back to reality.  Ultimately, I think that is what this guy is saying. 

    Why should the pats be favored to win the SB next year?  Frankly, I believe there are a number of reasons, but home playoff losses should temper the prospects just a bit.  Don't forget all of the times you've called the colts overrated.  Now that you have two consecutive HOME one and dones on your hands, be prepared for similar comments. 

    And don't think the HOME part of those one and done's isn't significant particularly given the reg season home win streak.

    Re: According to Rob Parker ESPN, Pats overrated for SB.

    Rusty, I agree with you that the pats should be one of the favorites, and if this guy considers them a top 10 team, then so does he.  He said they would make the playoffs. 

    As for why he thinks what he thinks, he tells you.  They've not played well in the playoffs the last 2 years.  they have not won anything since 04.  those are his reasons, as I interpret him.  He's certainly entitled to his opinion. 

    He didn't, and I don't think that anyone thinks the pats are not "in good shape". 

    The colts were no more overrated than than the pats.  in 09, EVERYONE had them as favorites.  I don't want to hear the brady coming off of injury excuse, because everyone here was fawning over Brady's ability to run in February.  Everyone claimed he'd be 100% when the season started.  Then the pats folded in the playoffs AT HOME.  FOLDED. 

    This year, the expectations were significantly lower and the pats well out performed them setting themselves up as SB favorites going into the playoffs.  That they lost again in their first game, AGAIN AT HOME to a team they had previously beaten 45-3 and that not many were giving much credibility (mark sanchez anyone) texplains how people come to a conclusion that the pats are overrated.

    Oh - and the colts have nearly turned over their staff save a few key players: 

    Manning, Wayne (replacement in place), Clark (replacements in place), Saturday, Freeney, Brackett (replacement in place).  So the colts are a team who've been able to replace players on the fly, as well. 

    Finally, regarding the AFC South, did you know its sent more teams to the playoffs since realignment than the AFC East.  So much for a cupcake division.  Look in your own back yard.

    Sure ESPN has been critical of the colts.  There are plenty of people there that share the same opinions of the colts that many here have.  Please don't generalize like that. 

    As for injuries, here's why you heard about it with Indy and GB:

    The problem, outside of the anti-NE angle, is the fact that people see BB and BRady and equate them and the Pats logo as what happened from 2001-2007, which was 4 SB appearances. It's a team game.   53 players.  Some luck. Health. A lot needs to tilt into one direction for the one team to win it all.

    NEWSFLASH: When NE lost 5 All Pro defenders and started to rebuild in 2008 and 2009 (losing Harrison, Bruschi, Seymour and Vrabel - prior to that Samuel), this means they are committing to rebuilding. I love how people want to ignore this so they can try to spin their comments in a way that makes them feel good.Posted by BBReigns

    Russ you are confusing me with these statements you made - See above

    I thought Brady and Belichick were the only reasons why the pats won superbowls.  Every time I try to say that the defense deserves credit for those wins, all I get is Brady and Belichick. 

    So, what you are saying is that I was right all along.  It was the defense.  Feels good to know the ultimate pats fan agrees I was right. 

    Now, I haven't disagreed with you on this yet.  I think the patriots have done a fantastic job turning over their staff (particularly on D) and remaining playoff competitive.  Brady does deserve credit here.  without him, I don't think the pats are nearly as good when he needed to carry the team.  Problem is, he can't do it alone.  Pats look set for the forseeable future.

    Out of curiosity, you of contexts and facts and having them straight, how in the world could you ever claim to know anything about me and what I did or did not do?

    First, knowing something is never a hunch.  That you related one to the other is telling to us all.

    Second, backpedaling, as you normally do ('or never played them well"), demonstrates once again how weak you really really are. 

    Third, if you were trying to say that your comment was just a hunch, if this is indicative of other hunches you have, you are not very good at them.  You'd be better off sticking with facts, although I am not convinced you know the difference.  

    Class dismissed.

    So I guess Underdogg couldnt find me ever saying ESPN was "ok" when they praise the Pats since he ignored my last post. Nice one. With that said Rusty dont say people around here dont care what ESPN has to say because you and many other who claim to not take ESPN seriously then turn around and read Mike Reiss who by the way gets paid by ESPN and is just as much a puppet now that he works for ESPN as anyone else. So clearly you and other care what ESPN has to say because Mike Reiss speaks for ESPN and you eat his sh*t up. Just saying.

    Tas - you are always jumping my sh8t for not responding to you.  Is the honeymoon period in your household over? 

    I believe you are one of the consistent fans on this board.  You probably don't watch ESPN.  I do, but I don't watch alot of their NFL stuff. 

    1.  I hate Chris Berman
    2.  I used to like Tom Jackson, but they've asked him to be more "blustery" and it bugs me. 
    3.  It appears that they set up each of their commentators (not reporters) with a preconceived agenda, not based necessarily on how that commentator may actually feel but in order to spur debate.  Rather than meaningful discussion, they have to provide "point-counterpoint" debate.

    I told you that you would have a girl, didn't I?  Now I know why you are always jumping down my throat!  LOL. 

    Would you watch ESPN if the pats were playing on ESPN?
