the Patriots are looking DAMN GOOD right now. Please save the jokes for them cheating in this thread. They just look dominate.

We all knew they were going to beat the Jets rather easily since they are overrated. But jeez they beat the Chargers up pretty good. Offense and defense just looking GREAT for them.

I had them losing in the AFC Champ. to the Ravens. I think I'm gonna change that and say they should be going to the SB. Damn they look good which is unfortuante for me because one of my real good friends is a die hard Patriots fan and he'll brag (even though I could just bring up a little scandal lol).

Agreed on how they look, but it's only week 3. Long way to go. I wouldn't book reservations in Arizona for any team just yet.

The Chargers are overrated too. The Colts would still beat them if it came down to it in the playoffs I think. Dungy has three in a row against Belicheat and the Colts just really seem to be a team that gets it all of a sudden.

If the Pats keep it up they might be able to join such legendary teams as the 2006 undefeated Super Bowl champ Bears and the 2005 undefeated Super Bowl champ Colts.

Lots of teams look awesome early and tail off, incur injuries, or simply meet up with a hot team that is a bad match-up in January.

The Pats certainly have the potential to be the best Pats team ever, but that does not guarantee a SB - just ask the 1976 Steelers

Very true and I've thought about that as well. It just seems there's always that one team year in and year out that looks GREAT now and looks like they will be in the SB. 2004 Steelers, and like you said about the Colts and Bears.

Hey just remember last year, we looked awesome against the chiefs and then blew several games we should have won.

While they look great now, can tey keep up the pace for the entire season. While it is most assured that they will win their division, I believe they will fail to be tested consistently in the regular season and will have their season ended at home when it matters most!

Yeah, they look good without a doubt.

I agree with Atlanta Dan and Fansince'76 though - impressive early season form is no reason to 'crown their ass'.

On the flip side, you have people downplaying both of the Patriots opponents, disregarding the fact that both made the postseason last year - the Chargers are not suddenly a bad team, although are far from top-form at this point.

The Jets will push for the postseason again - they made a late run last year and hit form at the right time no reason why they can't get Pennington fit and do the same this year.

That San Diego D will shred some very decent O-line's this year - I think the Patriots O-line is ready to take the step up to 'elite' along with the Colts.

I also look forward to getting Rodney H. and Seymour back in action - hopefully the Sey-monster will be dressed and ready for action by game 8-10.

So its looking great right now, but there always twists and turns during the season - and this year the Patriots seem to have gone out of their way to create some of their own.

The Chargers are headed nowhere this year and there's two words to confirm that. Norv Turner.

The Patricheats on the other hand do look like a well oiled machine this early in the season. We'll see if they can keep up the tempo.

Me personally? I'm looking forward to Dec 9th.

Smack talk to one side - im really looking forward to it too - Pittsburgh/New England games have always seemed like a clash of the giants in the last 5/6 years or so.

I think people are being overly critical of the Chargers - they beat the SB finalists in the first game while not being at their best and then run into possibly the most talented team in the league on a real good day.

Rivers is a decent NFL QB (Manning has looked just as bad, if not worse against the Patriots in the past), LT is the premiere RB in the NFl and they have two potentially dominant lines.

That says playoff football to me - I really don't see Denver beating them out for top spot - who are quite possibly the most fortuitous 2-0 team in the league.

I had a feeling brady would have a career year. Look what brady has done with guys like troy brown as his go to wr. Having a motivated randy moss turns this team into an unstopable team

They are still the Pats and being a devoted card carrying Pats hater, I am hoping they are peaking now. Injuries happening to key players in the course of a season are always a possibility and Pats players are not immune. We shall see what unfolds as the season rolls along. And Bill Billicheck is STILL A JERK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So there.

The Patriots are looking scary mighty. Perhaps unbeatable. And maybe they are. But it's a long season. Titles aren't won in September.

The Jets are overrated. And the Chargers are going nowhere this year. Rivers is exposed, no WR's, and Norv Turner is their coach. Nothing else needs to be said. But like a good team, the Pats destroyed them. They will be a tough challenge.

I really think its a little early to be writing off the Chargers - I know im not.

Every team has a flaw of some description - the Chargers have attempted to address the WR position through the draft and it normally takes while for them to get up to speed, more so than any other position.

Rivers is no Grossman - I think he still has plenty of potential but he and LT need a little time to get accustomed to the changes that a new HC brings.

The thing is, you start writing off the Chargers...then you have to ask who the good teams are in the AFC.

The Ravens?

The Colts?

Who is going to beat the Chargers to the AFCW?

The Bronco's have looked very ordinary and KC is on the downswing...the Raiders surely aren't close.

The fact of the matter is that the Chargers have played (arguably) the best team from each conference in their first two games - compare that to the Steelers opposition who are both extremely unlikely to reach the postseason.

Its too early to jump to conclusions based on such a wide range of opposition.

Mark my words, San Diego will make the playoffs.

Two words, "we'll see". It is way too early to know what this year will bring. I always get a good laugh at how quickly people jump on and off of the bandwagons. As we learned in the very near past, it is who is playing the best in December and January. Yes the Pats look good right now. But looking good and dominant in September doesn't count for anything in the championship months.
