    This is a joke, seriously.  No, you are not an elite team because you hammered a winless squad.  In fact, I believe the Pats have beaten a grand total of ONE TEAM WITH A WINNING RECORD. 

    The Pats are clearly a step or two, or three behind any legit superbowl contender.  Beating the Colts or Saints?? Please, get some reality here homers.

    And for the dude guy that writes "If Brady plays like Brady we are 6-0", well, if Clayton plays like an NFL WR and catches an easy pass you are 3-3.  Then if McKelvin plays like an NFL return specialist you are 2-4.

    Now you all are discounting the Jets, Dolphins, Texans, etc. etc., quality NFL teams that the Pats still have to play as if those are gimme wins because the Pats blew out the worst team in the NFL.

    I'll be back after the Saints thoroughly embarrass and destroy the Pats at home.  No question at all what will happen in that game, end of discussion.

    Woo-hoo!  Glad to see the bandwagon up and rolling!  Sure better than all of those "what's wrong with Brady?" posts from the last week.  Of course, nothing was wrong with him then, either, but you know how ladies are--always worried.

    13-3 at worse, and this has nothing to do with yesterday.  I actually thought they would be on a run after Baltimore, then the Denver hiccup came on.  Once they roll through Tampa and have a bye, they will be ROLLING and nearly impossible to stop.  Plus, the defense that so many people whined about is on its way to being one of the best in the league.  What a shock--BB knew what he was doing! 

    Okay, as for Indy.  They are just as good as all the other times they started off hot--which is to say "not very".  Prince Peyton will do what he always does (save one time) when the pressure is on and he has to play a real game. Oh, and, last I checked, Brady's record against the Colts is still pretty fricking good--in Indy or elsewhere.

    We're going to hold you to that, Tubby!  But you Trolls never do come back...unless you just want to whine about how lucky the Pats got.  Somehow, another team's incompetence translates into good luck for the Pats for you hambones.

    Oh, and underdogg!  Guess what?!  There is a pair of Peyton Manning's underwear for sale on eBay!  It's the actual pair he wore in his Oreo commercial with Donald Trump!  Better hurry--the price is going up fast! 

    Okay, underdogg's gone.  Won't have to worry about him for a while.  Seriously, is there anything better than listening to these haters whine and cry every time the Pats get rolling?

    11-5 is a reasonable record at this point.  Keep it real fellas, the Pats beat the Titans.  N.O destroyed the Giants (are you watching film, BB) and Indy will be tough in the dome, can't really see the Pats winning those two.  Got to give one to Miami and they need to run the table on the rest.  No easy task.

    I never really considered pointing out outrageous homerism as "constant howling," (as you may be aware, I am something of an outrageous homer myself -- even though I don't technically reside in New England anymore), but if everything you try to posit is going to be as "outrageous" as that "we softened them up for you" take from yesterday, I suppose the howling could get fairly persistent -- if not downright constant.

    Oh . . .  and I did see that opinion posted a couple times about Blue New Jersey. I don't know if you caught my comment about who guys like Any Reid and Rex Ryan might consider "tough" opponents, but I would suggest that anyone who thinks Blue New Jersey is a pushover because they couldn't apply pressure in N'awlins yesteday will be in for a funny surprise when their team plays the Jints.

    Pmike - the bandwagoners really come out of the woodwork after a strong showing, don't they. 

    It feels like you've been calling me out for the last couple of weeks.  As for your opinion of my take yesterday, it was just opinion, and I'll stand by it.  There are any myriad of reasons (other than the titans simply s*ck) for them not competing yesterday, and I don't know why their 5 previous losses (of which Peyton Manning was a part) can't have something to do with that. 

    I did see your comments on the Giants and I agree.  I will say this however, a team who has faced nothing but lesser opponents, as the Giants have, may not be mentally prepared when a tough opponent comes along.  And I apply this concern to the colts, too.

    Re: Prediction: 11-5

    Here's what I think.

    I think maybe the reason I feel like crowing particularly loudly today is because I've been telling people for two weeks (and yes, people includes you) that Tennessee is a train wreck, and all I've been getting in response is "You have to respect every opponent" (which is true for the players and coaches, but not for me), "The Titans have had some tough breaks," and "Tennessee is better than its record."

    Now -- today -- I think we can all agree that Tennessee is not only a bad team, but quitters, too -- I heard some wonk on the radio this morning equating yesterday's Pats win to a similar win over Arizona last December and deadpan -- maybe this means Tennessee is going to the Supr Bowl.

    Ha ha ha

    It's probably true that Blue New Jersey is less good than some thought because they haven't had to prove themselves. As to how this applies to the Colts -- I've felt for years that the Pats and Colts circle each other on the calendar every year (and most years the game has monumental consequences -- which could again be the case this year). If I were you, and I were willing to admit that the Colts have not faced a stern test this year (unless it was Miami), I would be worried about a Pats team that appears to be improving.

    That and this is the last year you get the home field advantage (for at least the next three) and I certainly expect these teams to continue meeting, as division winners, for years to come.

    Mosseffect:


    I love the picture you have posted for your profile.  In fact, it was part of one of the most enjoyable game I've ever had the pleasure to watch in all of my years following professional sports.  Moss catches the TD pass in the final minutes that homer nation believes will complete their perfect season, only to see Eli steal the game away.  Lol, you may want to change that.

    Bro, the Saints just flat out dismantled a 5-0 Giants team.  Say whatever you want about the Giants, but you are in the minority if you believed they were a top 3, if not the BEST team in the NFL before that game.  I know you want desperately to believe the Giants are over rated because they destroyed your dream, but face it, they were 12-4 last year and 5-0 before they played the Saints.

    I know, I know, everyone is weak and plays a subpar schedule but the Pats.  We all know, the same team that couldn't complete a pass two weeks ago against the Jets is suddenly the team to beat after running up the score on an 0-6 team.  Clearly, teams like the Saints and Colts should take notice now lol.


    10-6.

    I'm confused.

    Was Blue New Jersey overrated.

    Or were they actually a legit 5-0 team.

    Are you honking N'awlins or the Jints?

    Do you even have a point, or are you just in here spewing nonsense because the team you pretend to root for isn't even in the discussion?

    Um...I hate to rain on that lovely parade of yours but...well...um...you...well, you forgot to add that the colts softened the titans up for the pats.  there.

    Now on to less relevant things.  Its possible that NYG is not as good as touted.  Or N O could be that good.  It could be that NYG was not as prepared as they should have been.  Brandon Marshall was complaining last week, etc.  They could have just run into a buzz saw and a second game against one another in the playoffs could be different.  Who knows.  As they say, that why they play the games. 

    Indy v N E - I do not think that Indy is taking N E lightly.  I do not think Indy is thinking about N E at all right now.  They've got a few games before that.  Rest assured when the time comes, Indy knows what to expect.  No sane person would disregard the pats weaponry on offense.  The defense, well there may be some opportunities for the colts. 

    As for who Indy has faced - well Miami was difficult, but a great opportunity for pressure play by the offense.  And I don't know what AZ is, but they are 3-2 and Indy played them in AZ and throttled them on both sides of the ball with all of their weapons available.   

    Who knows.  We'll see.  Just curious, how long has N E been improving?  Since before the denver game or just after against and 0-5 team?

    hmmm...  lot's of "tough team this and tough team that!"  I think we can all agree to disagree, right?

    IMHO, this may be one of the most UNPREDICTABLE NFL seasons in years!  Of the teams currently undefeated at this stage of the season, pending tonight's outcome, maybe only one was expected to be there, that being the Colts, given their "relatively" easy start to the season.  Look at all the doubts cast the Giants way prior to their game with the Saints yesterday and look what happened.  After the first three games of the season, there were all kinds of calls, mostly NY media, for a NY-NJ SB!!  But, then again, we are seeing teams this year that haven't started out looking as good as expected, surprising defeats for teams against opponents many predicted would be easy victories, with quite a few Jekyl & Hyde performances.  Is parity here as envisioned by the NFL with unpredictability every weekend?  And, what about the Pats?

    Couldn't we say this season has started about as expected?  An inconsistent Brady and offense.  A defense learning to play together with all those new faces.  If we can say anything, outside of the play of the D, which has improved weekly, the inconsistent offense may be the core reason for the two losses.  It has been said everywhere, the Pats O has left lots of points on the field.  The game against the Titans?  Yes, we can all say the Titans are lousy, but, let me ask this:  Against a lousy team, wouldn't you expect a lopsided victory from a better team?"  So, when the Pats trounce the Titans, in conditions affecting BOTH teams, how do you explain a 59 - 0 white washing?  What if the game was 20 - 17?  Everyone would then question the Pats and whether or not the Titans are that bad.  Right?  If all of our crystal balls worked as we hope, we'd be in Vegas raking it in!!

    Can you believe all of these pathetic losers on here talking junk about the Pats?  Seriously, I just took some time to think about it--how stupid must your life be to take the time to come on another team's forum to rant and rave.  There are many teams I despise--the Colts and Giants being just two--and it never once occured to me to go to their sites and talk smack.  Seriously, I want to hear from you fleabags after the Colts and Saints game.  Let me see if I can guess your excuses on that day: will it be the officials?  Will it be an inexplicable mistake by a key player?  I am so excited to hear what it will be!  Can there be any more evidence of the Pat's greatness than the amount of haters who take the time to write on here?  Can you even imagine the misery these goat-humpers must have experienced in the last few years watching the Pats win?  I am afraid their miserey will only continue!

    Re: Prediction: 11-5

    I love this idea that you are a traitor to your team if you realistically assess their schedule. If the only point to being a fan was to mindlessly cheer the team on then why be on this forum at all? You can only type "the Pats are great...go Pats!" so many times. 

    The biggest thing for the regular season is to stay injury-free and make it to the playoffs while honing your team. Losses can be more instructive than victories in that regard. Brady is still getting his groove back, the defense is young, the running back situation is far from great right now unless Maroney can keep it up. I see some more losses but maybe not the games we expect. Peyton Manning is playing superb football. Only an idiot would say otherwise. I see either 12-4 or 11-5 with 11-5 more likely, but also plenty enough to win the division the way the Jets are going of late. 

    Once the playoffs start our guys should have as good a shot as any. As for Brady versus Manning, both are all time greats but my view is that whoever wins a couple more rings at this point will be considered the best. Peyton's stats are so good that if he equals Brady in rings he'll be considered the best of the two. But if Peyton doesn't get any more rings and Brady gets a couple more, he'll have five and then he'll go down as the better QB. It's about rings at this point. Brady played well enough to win during the 17-1 season but no one will remember that now. 

    Let's see what happens. As we found out last year, injuries play a big role. Now, back to the Monday nighter.

    DaMadhatter:


    The point is, why would you even expect the Pats to beat the Colts or Saints on the road??  What have the Pats done this season that leads you to this baseless conclusion?  Are you asserting that the Broncos and Jets are better than the Colts and Saints?  Let me remind you, the Pats lost to both of the afore mentioned on the road.

    It's just silly how about 75% of the fan base in New England is comprised of people like you, who for some bizarre reason suddenly make assumptions based upon a blowout of a terrible winless team.  If you are not basing your S__t talk on that game, again I ask, what in the hell ARE you basing it on?  Can't be anything the Pats have done this year, because they've only beaten one team with a winning record, and that game was at home. 

    The Saints will flat out embarras this Pats team, and it is so completely obvious to any non homer.  #1, Pats DB's cannot match up to N.O WR's.  #2, no pressure on Brees.  How did Banta Cain work out for you??  Saints put up 48 on the Giants D, and somehow the Pats will fair better?  These are just common sense points I am making, not even talking trash.

    #3, the Pats glaring lack of a running game is going to kill them in the Saints game.  N.O is going to get behind that crowd and pressure Brady, as they have been doing to other teams all year, and you are going to see a drummed down repeat of the Jets/Pats game.  Pats will score a bit more than in that game, but not by much.

    49-20 Saints.  That is a very realistic perdiction based upon how each team has faired against common opponents, the matchups, and where the game is being played.

    Didn't you guys learn ANYTHING about the relevance of blowout wins in 2007?

    Of the teams currently undefeated at this stage of the season, pending tonight's outcome, maybe only one was expected to be there, that being the Colts, given their "relatively" easy start to the season. 

    But I disagree with you on two points here:  1.  Most national pundits said the colts would have a down year due to the losses of Dungy, the DC, the ST coach, the offseason retirement then rehire of the OC and OL coaches, the loss of Harrison, and the injury to Sanders.  Houston would take the division, and while the Titans would suffer from the loss of Haynesworth no one predicted this.  2.  Before the start of the season no one would have thought these first 5 games for the colts would be so easy.  most said the Dolphins would not make the playoffs but also said they would be better than last year.  no one predicted the complete demise of Tenn, nor was anyone thinking AZ would be an easy game.  The colts played all of these games on the road.  

    As of today, things look very different than predicted for the colts.

    Hey Casportsfan.....

    So, a "confident" Pats fan who thinks the Pats can defeat the Colts or the Saints or both on the road are bizarre in their assumptions, but, you are perfectly sane in your assumptions the Pats will be embarrassed by the Saints?  You have as much bias against (you never really liked the Pats) as Pats fans do for their team.  We are talking about a game 6 weeks away, who knows how each team will be performing by then?  You ASSUME the Saints will keep on trucking and you ASSUME the Patriots WILL NOT improve.  Everyone agrees the Pats did not look good against Buffalo, but won, really didn't look good against the Jets, handled the Falcons quite well and put 27 points on the Ravens when everyone thought the Ravens were the cats meow when they played.  Against Denver, the Pats left all sorts of points on the field and Brady was horrible.  Against the Titans, the 59 - 0 white washing can be used to show the Pats are playing very well as good teams SHOULD spank a poor team.  What would you say if they won 20 -17 versus 59 - 0?  Wouldn't surprise me that even if the Pats were also 6 - 0, you'd still spout reasons why the Saints will embarrass the Pats.
