NE just seems to get better and better despite the weather or the opponent. For the last two weeks, NE has just crushed two good teams. What makes it especially alarming, both the Jets and Bears have great defenses. Brady and Company with its midget receiving corp, old man branch and rookie TE's are ripping up the secondaries. It's almost getting embarrassing.

Today's game was over at the half. 33-0. Against the bears. The surprise last week against the Jets was the 40 points scored. That game too was over at the half.

Perhaps, Belichek's spy films are now in 3D, because no one can stop NE at this point. This is especially worrisome because the road to SB 45 goes through Foxboro.

I am of the opinion that Le Beau did not show his cards against NE earlier in the year. He held back his blitzes and more complicated stunts to use in the playoffs. At least that is what I hope. If not, the Steelers had better hope that NE's peak runs out soon.

I'm not counting the Steelers out. NE has an anemic defense. The Steelers have an even worse offense. The offense has only managed to score touchdown against the Bengals and the Bills. If the Steelers can't fix the O, it looks like Atlanta NE in SB 45. The Steelers should be in the AFC title game. It will be a good game to watch.

In the past 5 weeks, the Patriots have manhandled 4 of the better teams in the NFL. Defensively and offensively. But success can only last so long, you'd think at some point a team is going to figure out what they are doing and stop it... Giants eventually did it a couple years ago in the superbowl.

I don't believe that LeBeau didn't show his cards when we played NE. Do you think he wanted to lose? Dick and the rest of the team knew that was a big game and they really wanted that win. Only problem was they walked out on the field looking like live living zombies who didn't give a crap.
As much as i hate to say this, the Pats are just a much better team than ours and coached second to none. As good as our D is, we would have to play both the defensive game of a lifetime and stop Brady and his BS short passes and our offense would have to play its game of the year too. I'm not sure this team is capable of that right now, especially on the offensive side, there are just too many injuries. I'd like to see it happen, but i just don't know.

I've watched a bunch of their games and i think its obvious. 2 things. Big-time heavy pressure on Brady and STOP that short pass inside and outside of Brady's. Thats how you do it.
Problem is, how DO you do it. You blitz everybody, he throws that short pass even more and quickly. You don't blitz and he has all day back there and picks your secondary apart like a surgeon. Tough one.

A team needs pure pass rushers. A team has to be able to get preasure on Brady with only 4 guys rushing and also manhandle his recievers at the line of scrimage. The problem with that is teams usually use safteys and linebackers to help bump recievers but because the Patriots now have 3 very good tightends, linebackers and safteys have to worry more about them in the middle than the recievers. The offensive scheme is very good in general but because it has A+ talent at each position, its pretty unstoppable unless it goes up against a team with talent and playcalling.

I'm hoping that they are peaking too early

I hate, hate, hate Brady and Belicheat. Maybe if I hate them enough they will slip up and lose their first game in the playoffs. Or perhaps it will be the Ravens and they will knock Brady into next week. Of course, we can't touch him but they can use Ben like a punching bag. I suppose that will continue into the playoffs. There is no way to win if the Steelers don't quit getting holding calls at the worst possible time on drives all the time. I was hoping the Bears and Packers would both beat them but the Bears were horrid and the Packers aren't looking that good lately.

In all honesty, it's scary what they are doing right now, and to very good teams....Brady is MVP, don't matter who has out there to throw the ball to, he's just $$$...Hopin' for a miracle that they are somehow knocked out of it before we might see them again in the playoffs.

I think the Pats are in a league of their own right now. They are absolutely killing the competition. I can see them winning the SB or putting up a good fight for it vs. ATL or NO. Also with the ridiculous amount of picks they have in next year's draft, they are on the verge of rebooting their dynasty. I look for them to be a serious contender for another 4 to 5 years barring the injury of Brady. Heck they may even secure the successor to Tom in the upcoming draft and keep on rolling. I don't really buy the whole spy gate thing. If it was really such a huge advantage, they would've killed their opponents in the SB. All of their wins have been squeakers and their one loss too. I used to respect them, then hated them and now respect them again. Personally I find it hard to get down on organization that gives a shot to small white guys. Woodhead is ridiculous.

Eric Mangini seems to be one of the few coaches in the NFL who can construct a game plan to beat New England. He worked under Belicheck for several years, so he surely has some idea on how to dismantle New England.

I think that most of New England's offensive success comes from the new NFL rules on hitting. Brady can throw those short slants to Welker all day, and most defensive players are afraid to really nail him because of fines.

We can do what most posters get off from on this board...Call them names It really seems like im on the Browns or Bengals board the way they call the Steelers names because they can't beat us.....New England is a well run organization with a great Coach who commands respect from his troops. A lot like us!!
