    In Response to Re: Pats are going 19-0 this year. : yeah, i like winning the super bowl. but no way they end up 10-6
    Posted by kansaspatriot

    Me neither, my point really was that I'd rather win the superbowl regardless of what the regular season record is.  Seriously, would you rather go 10-6 and win the superbowl or go 16-0 in regular season and lose somewhere in the playoffs?

    Re: Pats are going 19-0 this year.

    The fantasy of 19-0 might be appealing for our narcissistic ego's (make us feel special and invulnerable) but the reality of it could be disturbing to us. Such feat's can take us further from the humility necessary to appreciate life and from the reality of how necessary it is accept imperfection in ourselves and others. Furthermore, others have re-inforced that the pressure of having to be 19-0 can be self defeating in itself.

    Emotional sobriety is counter to belief system of many sports fans but is necessary.

    -_-...In the entire history of the NFL, only two teams have gone undefeated in the  regular season. Only one team has gone undefeated the entire year, to say that a team with the same QB and head coach will do it again is like saying Adriana Lima wants to have my first born son. It ain't happening.  14-2 is what I'm looking at for the season.

    Only in the super bowl Era. but I mean lets face it that Dolphins team in 72 was not even that great of a team.  They didn't have to play a team with a winning record till the playoffs.  85 Bears and 07 Pats are far better than that Fins team

    I'm a fanatic. I'm rooting for them to win every game.....therefore, I'm rooting for them to go 19-0. I can't see myself watching a game, and hoping the Pats lose......just so we don't have the pressure of an undefeated season.

    I don't think that is ever really going to be realistic.   It'd be an incredible feat, but I am not sure I see it ever happening.  Maybe. I see them as 13-3 this year, maybe a 14-2 situation.

    It might not be realistic to you. The Colts had a chance to be perfect, but they bitched out. It's entirely possible for the Pat's. They did it once second time around would be so much sweeter. If the Pats stay healthy I say they have a decent chance at 19-0

    If Brady is upright they will win no less than 12 games and have home field throughout the playoffs. At the end of the day all I care about is them winning when it counts.

    Not that it's an impossibility but it is unlikely. What may stop them is the way the schedule maker starts their season with 5 out of 7 on the road,this will never happen to the NYJ or the NYG because they are the darlings of Goodsmell. However I do see the Patriots coming close to 15-1 regular season and I'll reserve prediction for the post season because I have to see how healthy they are.

    Re: Pats are going 19-0 this year.


    I think it's going to be a very long time before we see another 16-0 regular season team. I mean it was 35+ years between the 72' Dolphins and 2007 Pats. Will it be another 35+ years? Who knows.
    On paper and in preseason we have seem glimmers of what this team can be. In all honesty, I would like us to go back to grinding it out and having an attacking D. This is what wins in the post season.
    If i had to predict our W/L based on schedule, I would put us at 13-3 or 12-4. Either should be good enough to win the division.

    Re: Pats are going 19-0 this year.

    The 'Spygate Incident' was so over-blown! These teams scout each other so well that no matter what anyone says, "It all comes down to execution." Nobody wants to give anyone any credit anymore. I guess it's easier to discredit another team than admit our own teams failings. Take college basketball. most teams only have a handful of plays. All week their opponent's watch film & scrimmage against the scout team which run these plays over & over. Come game time, They know what's coming, but many times fail to stop the other team because the other team just executes better. That's what the Patriot's have done over most of the past decade, execute better than the other team. I don't think 'spygate' has anything to do with the Patriots struggling in the playoffs lately. It seems like the team that is 'peaking' going into the playoffs usually ends up as Super Bowl Champs, even though they were clearly not the best team all year.
    If it was a best out of 3, than the better team would most likely win out. But in a one game playoff, anything can happen!

    19-1.  The Pats go 15-1 and tie for the AFCE title with the Jets, who win it on tiebreakers forcing the Pats to play in the wild card round.

    Seriously, I couldn't handle another run.  The end of 2007, and the playoff run left me a jangle of nerves.  I was actually expecting them to lose in the Super Bowl; I was that sick about the whole thing and just had a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach going in.

    Re: Pats are going 19-0 this year.

    Well, like I said, I can't nor won't pretend to tell'ya that Karma's bonafide 110% Real, true...  But I'll offer you 1 thing:  In 2007, The Pats Players and UN-doubtedly seemingly every adhoring fan of the 2007 NE Patriots, began placing their humility, their "hopes for a SB", ALL these things- Just a tad more "in check" (as that season wore on).   Ya wanna know what started taking it's place?  Things & feelings like "deserving", and "Lombardi's in the bag", and other overall feelings of entitlement...  IF you were here, you saw it...  Heck, I did too.  Uhp, Pats killed another team...yea, pretty much unstoppable, untouchable.  IF you have FRIENDS that are Pats Fans, during the 2007 season you saw it from them...  They WERE not, beatable...at all.  

    Feelings & emotions & thoughts of entitlement, gross over-illustration of Hubris in something that'cha follow, love, and consider yourself some "part of" (as a fan)...

    These things scare me.
    These things en masse, and grossly outweighed in terms of: I (We) are so much better than you, You have no chance, We're simply unstoppable & deserving, & right, & blah-blah-blah...
    Those things, like that, way outta balance...Are not good.

    Because these things, EVEN IF you're the most diehard blinded cynic RE: Thoughts being real things...ya gotta realize 1 thing at least...

    These things can't help matters.      
    PreSeason Threads portraying a 19-0 cakewalk to certain Lombardi before ANY-thing has happened...?

    Thanks Laz,
    This says it!
    It is this kind of entitled, narcissistic thinking that leads everyone into trouble and creates so much revenge, pain and violence in the world. I know I have been guilty of it in my life.

    I want them to go 19-0 so we, as Patriot fans, can say a big collective "SHUT-UP" and "F-U" to all those who brought up Spygate, are currently mentioning it, or who will bring it up in the future.

    Saying F.U. won't make others stop saying it and it won't help us feel better either because it does not address the real issue. Humility and honesty are needed to admit BB's mistakes even if it is inconsequential (the illegal filming). Even then, we have little control over other's revengeful attitudes. We have to let go. No ammount arguing can gaurantee others will change their minds. At that point, it is their problem. We do not need to make it our problem by ceaseless arguing.

    Thanks for the kind words. I really find that the regulars on here bring up some interesting and good questions about not only the Patriots, but the league as a whole. What I really find interesting is how you guys have been bringing up the last few years how the Patriots have been re-loading(Can't say rebuilding, because they've remained near the top) It's slowly all coming together, and you have to tip your hat to Coach Belichick & the Patriot organization for the choices they have made, and  the way they did it. I know it's only preseason, but the Patriots are loaded and I'll be surprised if they lose very many games. To go undefeated is pretty tough, especially if injuries start to mount up. You can also never expect what will happen when the Patriots play the Jets. Although I think the Jets could easily get blown out by the Patriots, I don't think you'll see the Jets blowing out the Patriots. But it has become such a fierce rivalry, and if they can keep it close, get a few breaks, it could be a nail-biter. Should be an interesting year. Personally I hope Cleveland continues to improve, it would be great to bring that rivalry back into the game. I have a few friends that are Browns fans and we always have a lot of fun bantering with each other. All good people and very dedicated to their team, win or lose!

    I dunno, 19-0 takes as much luck as it does skill really...for example Rex Ryan's ill timed timeout in 2007....had it not been for that, the perfect season would have been derailed by the Ravens...who were just terrible that year.

    Even though I've never said anything to you, I've always respected you as a poster. I think it's good to have fans from other teams take part in discussion on here but it's the stupid trolls that have nothing relevant to contribute to the discussion which ultimately just ends up destroying it. I've always respected Pittsburgh fans, even though I cheer for them to lose for the simple fact that they're always battling the Pats for the Conference. They're a great organization and are very similar to the pats with the way they run things. I went to Pittsburgh to catch a Sox/Bucs game this summer and was impressed with the people there. They actually reminded me a lot of Bostonians. Very dedicated fans who are very friendly and welcoming if you don't start sh*t with them. Anyways, good luck to you this season except for on October 30th and if we see you in the playoffs ;)
