    THIS ISN'T A NEW DECADE

    I've read about 10 columnists right about this "new decade...off to a bad start" - "era over" - "decade of success over" - 2010 ISN'T A NEW DECADE - THATS 2011! JUST LIKE HOW 2001 WAS THE START OF THE 21ST CENTURY, NOT 2000!

    Yeah, its just "technically" wrong, but why on earth would a beantown sports writer go for that when Patriots started off a round of championships in 2001? not 2000. Wait to judge success and look back after the next season is done!  I'm not bringing this up because we are definitely going to bounce back and eat the rest of the league - but jeese, give another shot a chance or at least hold off on the "end of days" language.  Brady is still QB right? kraft owns the pats? BB is coach? its 2010.

    Probably all started when pats were named team of the decade - BUT IT ISNT OVER YET!

    Well, OK, I guess I see what you are saying, but the numbers book I just bought my son begins with 0 and ends with 9 (0123456789).  Of course, the Gregorian calendar does not have a year 0, which would make your point technically correct.  Then again, the Gregorian calendar has been adjusted so often it doesn't matter.  I think it's widespread practice to refer to decades as beginning with year 0 of the decade.  For instance, when I turn my Sirius radio to the 80's station, it plays any music from 1980-1989.  I guess technically it should be 1981-1990?

    Long story short, I don't think you're going to get the media to count this year as the final year of the decade, regardless of whether or not you are "technically" correct.  The unofficial "mainstream" definition ended with 2009.

    Agreed...Either way one looks at caraway's algebraic triste on the Gregorian Calender vs whether we should include Guns N' Roses second album on Satellite Radio's 80's station, In a purely NFL sense, it's a moot point considering next year becomes the 2010-2011 NFL Season, and thus-the beginning of the Next Decade (although I dug caraway's historical note).

    Actually, a decade is any 10 year period.  From 1987 to 1996 is a decade.  If you want to call a period of time the 'decade of the 90s' that would be from 1990 through 1999 where the first three digits of the year are identical.  Therefore, the next decade (decade of the 00s?) would be from 2000 through 2009.

    So, you're saying the colts still have a shot at team of the decade?

    Re: THIS ISN'T A NEW DECADE

    ud, I do believe that if the Colts win the SB this year should be included in any discussion for team of the decade.  With their number of wins, 2 SBs wins (assuming this year's), longest winning streak in NFL history, 4-time season/1-time SB MVP QB, etc. they would be a strong candidate but I believe that the Patriots number of wins (including post-season), 3 SB wins, 4 SB appearances, 5 conference finals, 2 of the 3 longest winning streaks in NFL history (post NFL/AFL merger), unbeaten regular season, 1-time season/2-time SB MVP QB, etc. do give the Patriots the edge.

    In any case, these are by far the two best franchises of the decade with the Steelers a distant third.

    Don't do drugs kids.  The first thing to go is your mind.

    New decade or not, I'm hearing the world ends in 2012. I think the Pats need to retool in a hurry if they want to place a stamp on this abbreviated decade.
