    Re: Rob Parker on ESPN's First Take

    Shut UP ALREADY about Spygate! Why does everything in this Country have to have a gate in it? The PATS went 16-0 after that, and once again we have to listen to an idiot talk about this! Dude move on, imagine him in a fight with his wife bringing up a fight three years ago! Most Coaches have said they have used that tatic as well, Mangini has said he was sorry he did that! Let's not forget that their was a memo before sent out to every team. You know, I like that we are not the favorites, look how it has worked when we were? This team loves to play together, and unlike most teams seem to respect one another and under Bill's leadership know what is expected of them as A TEAM, so F#{£ HIM!!

    You are correct.  Many here tried to dismiss Manning and the Colts because for a long time, all they did was win a lot of regular season games, and not the SB.  I don't think I was one of them...I think.  I can't say that I blame you for taking some shots.  A lot of fans deserve it.  We used to diss the Colts for having a great offense, no defense, being able to have a great regular season record, and not being able to win the big one.  That sounds strangely familiar to me.  In fact, that describes the Pats the last two seasons.  But we're fans, and we are entitled to our moments of hyprocracy.

    Slightly off topic, in the Army I was a tanker.  We used to discuss how during the Cold War the US Army adopted the Germans (WWII) losing strategy and the Russians adopted America's winning strategy.  We won WWII using cheaper and inferior tanks, but having much more of them to throw at the enemy.  The Germans believed in fewer, high quality tanks and superior tactics.  In the Cold War, the US believed in high quality equipment and superior tactics.  The Russions (Soviets) believed in cheaper equipment, but a lot of it.  If we were to rewind back to 2004, everyone on here was pretty hard on the Colts...for being what the Pats of late have been; a great offense led by a great qb with a poor defense and unable to win the SB.  We didn't think your "losing" formula could win the SB back then, but now we have adopted it.

    I hope it changes this year.  Defenses are becoming more and more handcuffed so maybe the winning formula is different now.  If the trend continues like it has, in 10 years people will say "defense wins games, but offense wins championships."

    We haven't won anything since the spygate year of 2007, we haven't won a playoff game in three years, we didn't beat anyone with a winning record. 


    This team hasn't really been tested this year, we'll see what if they're frauds come January 14, but Rob Parker is entitled to his own opinion. 

    Regular season accolades are for chumpass Colts fans.

    First Take is scripted.  Bayless is very pro Patriots so whoever is opposite him is always going to take the opposite position.  It is an act.

    In truth, it doesn't seem he said anything that is untrue but pointing to previous seasons as an indicator as to what is going to happen this year never really makes sense.  The 2009 Patriots are not really relevant to the 2011 Patriots.

    Just ignore the s-word.

    Beleive me when I tell you ... no one in the entire US really believes the PAtriots did anything any other team did not do. Most believe deep inside it was a bunch of BS the way it was blown out of proportion.

    The only reason they bring it us is to annoy Patriots fans...this is the way they express their jeleousy.

    They will seem adamant and use harsh biased language but all but the most deficient sub 70 IQ people really believe their own words.

    My advice is not to engage these people at all, they are really really really stupid or not serious people, not worth a single thought.

    Relax guys the only thing this will do is motive the Pats locker room.   Who cares what they same about Spygate, it's the total disrespect we need to get these guys up for the games.  The Pats haven't won since they were underdogs.  Guess what no one will pick them to beat the Squealers or the Ravens.  They might get the nod against Denver, or Houston, but a lot will pick them over even the Bungles.

    Enjoy this year let your heat race when they fall behind early but trust them to get it done and they will do it.  It's us against the world again

    Don't know where you are getting the "we" but the Pats have won over 80% of their games since sg.
    The Pats haven't won a play-off game in two years.  You can't win or loose one if you are not in the play-offs and if you really want to get technical. they won 2 po games in Jan/08.
    Over half of the teams the Pats played, had a winning record when they played them and in essence, contributed to those teams losing records by beating them at least once and in some cases twice.
    You can't get to the play-offs without regular season accolades and the Colts have that rep because they only won once in PMs career.  That will never be the case for Brady as he has already won 3 which is triple what the clots have done.
    Yes Parker has a right to his opinion but as you can see, his opinion is not very credible.  He seems to be in the habit of getting fired or suspended for his comments. Carry on!

    On March 28, 2008, Parker declared on ESPN's First Take that he had low expectations for college players Tyler Hansbrough and Kevin Love in the NBA, because they are white.[1]

    Parker, who is African American, is not shy to discuss the racial aspects of current sports events, such as the NBA off-court dress policy, or the lack of African Americans in NFL coaching positions. He penned a much-maligned column where he called Hank Aaron a "coward" for declining to attend when Barry Bonds would break the career home run record.

    In October 2008, Parker erroneously reported that Kirk Cousins, a quarterback for the Michigan State Spartans, was involved in a fight with members of the Michigan State hockey team. At the time of the fight, Cousins was at church with his parents. After being publicly reproved by head coach Mark Dantonio at his weekly news conference, Parker was suspended by The Detroit News for two weeks.[2]

    On December 21, 2008, at a press conference following the Lions' 42-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints, Parker addressed a question Lions head coach Rod Marinelli about Lions defensive coordinator Joe Barry, Marinelli's son-in-law, inquiring whether Marinelli wished that his daughter had "married a better defensive coordinator."[3] The question was criticized as unprofessional and inappropriate. The next day, Parker wrote that the comment was "an attempt at humor" and not a malicious attack.[4] Parker wrote no further columns forThe Detroit News, nor did he attend any press conferences, following the incident. On January 6, 2009, The Detroit News announced that Parker had resigned from the newspaper the previous week.[5]

    In Response to Re: Rob Parker on ESPN's First Take : ah - so you prefer to take him literally with those words, while the layman without a dog in the fight assumes he means superbowls, because otherwise it would be a ridiculous statement.  Funny how this board's general sentiment has been (at least it was a few years ago) that superbowl wins are the only thing that matters.  My how times change. 
    Posted by UD6


    Super Bowl wins are what matter. It is why teams play. 18-1. So what do you recall from that season? For me, how they blew it against the Giants. That is what I remember. Not the 18-0. They did nothing to change the game at halftime. That is what I remember.
     
    It is nice to have winning records season after season, but they set themselves up to be Super Bowl bound for yrs. Not necessarliy winning always, but surely making it out of the first round. And they have not. Period. But I route like heck here from TX for the Pats. I think they can get to the Super Bowl. GO Pats.

    I think most of us fans agree with you...to a point.  The day will come when BB is no longer our coach, Brady is no longer our QB, and we might see some of those pathetic losing years where we only squeeze out a small number of wins a year.  If/when that happens, I guarantee you that ALL OF US will feel really good about the thought of simply winning more games than we lose, or winning the division.  Try to remember being a fan of the 1990 1-15 Patriots, and how you felt at the time.  Remember the 4 seasons it took to even see a winning record again?  Try and tell me you weren't ecstatic when we posted a 10-6 record in 1994.

    I don't have any problem admitting that I'm happy merely winning a lot of games.  Anything above that is just icing on the cake.

    Yup, it's painfully obvious when a thread about Star Wars (no offense SW fans), gets more posts than a Patriots Appreciation thread.  Just makes you wonder who the fans really are.

    You only remember the Super Bowl Loss from the 2007 Season?

    I remember the very first game of the 2007 Season when "Spy Gate" was still the main topic on ESPN.  They beat the Jets in Giants Stadium and that was a great feeling.  This feeling was even greater the very next week when they Beat J-Bolt's Chargers and LT in Prime Time.  Both of these Victories were by Large Margins.  After the Charger Game, I felt like that was going to be a Special Season because it was the Patriots against the World and the Patriots did not disappoint me for 18 Straight Games.  

    Yes they lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl by 3 Points.  I was sad for a couple of days after the Super Bowl Loss. But to imply that the Super Bowl loss took away the satisfaction of 18 Straight Victories while almost everyone but Patriot Fans were hoping that they would lose is kind of sad.  

    The way the talking heads are dissing the Patriots currently, I'm beginning to get the same feeling that I got when the New England Patriots became the first Super Bowl team to be announced as a team instead of individualy at the 2002 Super Bowl.  When they came out of the Tunnel as a Team, it felt great to be a Patriot Fan.  That was Special.

    And remember in 2002 when nobody expected them to win against "The Greatest Show on Turf"? I hope the current dissing keeps coming because it would make victories all the more sweeter.  But you know what?  Win or lose, I'll still be a Patriot Fan. This is not Cool Aid BS or any of that.  The New England Patriots Job is not to solve world peace. The Patriots job is to provide enjoyable entertainment to their fans and they do an excellent job of doing exactly that.

    Surely you jest.  Let's all be thankful that it stayed cold.  That would have been one messy war.  I doubt I'd be here today.  I was one of the troops in Germany, also known as a speed bump until reinformcements arrived from the US.

    I hear you loud and clear. I don't disagree. I won't be crushed if the Pats don't win a Super Bowl this season. But it did hurt losing to the Giants. 18-0 is a huge accomplishment in and of itself. No doubt. But they should have won that game.  I did not lose any sleep when they lost. And I still remained a loyal Pats fan. Always will even if and when they stop making the playoffs.
     
    It is not about Super Bowl victories for me since I don't play. But it sure is nice when the teams you route for win it all. Like last years Boston Bruins. No one gave them a chance. All I heard(Melrose) was how awful their power play was and how that would hinder their playoffs. Well, it was awful, but they prevailed big time. And I think the Pats will do the same. They have something to prove this season. And I think they can make it to the Super Bowl. Win or lose I will still remain a loyal Pats fan.
