Beating New England without Brady would be the same as beating any other good football team. I'm sick and tired of hearing about how fucking unbeatable he is. Sure you have to play a great game to beat him but this guy has got to put his pants on one leg at a time in the morning just like anybody else. Against the Steelers, he looked unbeatable but if the Steelers score from the one inch line, kick an extra point, not drop a touchdown pass in the end zone that any decent NCAA Division III wide out catches, and go into the game with a rational defensive game plan, you've got a close game. Atlanta had him beat and it took perhaps the stupidest call in pro football history to hand the game to the Pats. I've been a sports fan since my dad took me to a Pirates game at Forbes Field in 1956 or 57 (Robin Roberts pitched the first game of a doubleheader for the Phillies, Pirates had a great young outfielder from Puerto Rico... I must be getting old), anyway, I've seen a dozen "unbeatable teams" get their head handed to them over the years, I just hope that if it happens to the Pats next year, Brady is over center and the team on the other end of the field is wearing black and gold.
They're not unbeatable, but their dominant. They are, without question, THE team to beat just about every year for the past fifteen. Sorry, I love the Steelers, but the AFCCG once again revealed that we're good, but not great. The Pats have $69M in cap space. $69M!!! and they're winning. Everyone that comes out of that organization speaks about unselfish greatness. They are everything every other team is trying to be but coming up short. Great teams don't keep talking about how they have to improve their red zone efficiency. We won are way to the AFCCG on nothing but FGs. Didn't we all see this coming? Flame away. I'll reset by next season, but we keep woulda, shoulda, coulda ourselves to death.
