In response to wozzy's comment:
Dan Marino... he was pretty good.
It's a team sport. The Patriots have been the best team in the NFL year in and out for over a decade, BB has one more ring to win to be the best of all time. Those are just facts.
You and others obviously don't remember what it was like to be the league doormats in the 80's, to be cellar dwellers looking up at all the great teams in the league with envy. Entitled is the best word to describe this...
I don't remember that? Wow, is that a Rusty comment or what?
Of course I do. That's irrelevant, however.
Tom Brady's good enough to have won one more since the beginning of Bush's second administration, especially if the coach and GM are as God-like as some tell me they are. When Brady is gone, I will temper my expectations. For now, it's Superbowl win or bust.
I watch the games and enjoy the heck out of doing so, but when I reflect upon a season, it's different.
This is the epitome of the arrogant, ignorant, entitled opinion fans around the country hate.
The feeling that they SHOULD win more.
Dan Marino, as mentioned, was a pretty good QB. Peyton is "good enough" to have more than 1. Andrew Luck HAD BETTER win AT LEAST 1 in his career, right?
A LOT has to go right for even the BEST teams to win it all.
Tom Brady has 3 rings in his career. His rookie season, the Pats were 5-11. Let that just sink in a little.
Looking back...do I maybe ish a guy's helmet wasn't coated in super glue? Do I wish Eli didn't drop a pass into a bucket from 40 yards away? Do I wish the Pats didn't blow an 18 pt lead in the second half to Indy? Sure, and there are more regrets. That's football.
You know what? There was also an unconscious WR that negated a TO in 01 that maybe saved the season. Brady FUMBLED in the snow. I still don't know how Vinatieri willed that ball 47 yards...it defies the physics I understand. You take the good with the bad. 01, 03 and 04 saw just about every single thing go right for the Pats. That luck does not last.
An amazing 4 year run ruined perception and expectations for the fans. At some point, the fans will settle down and just be able to enjoy one of the most dominant runs in the history of football, and not demand even MORE.
