The Pats joined the 1972 Miami Dolphins [team stats] as the only teams in NFL history to play a perfect regular season, posting a 16-0 mark in 2007. The Patriots also matched the feat of the 1990s Cowboys by winning three Super Bowls in a span of four years (2001-04).
Another Super Bowl in 2009 would allow the Patriots to match the 1970s Steelers and 1980s 49ers with four titles in a decade.
This guy has to be retarded ... explain to me again how four Super Bowls are better than six, or even five? Especially when you haven't even won your fourth one yet?
A 12-victory regular season would give the Pats 114 wins in the decade, breaking the NFL mark of 113 set by the San Francisco 49ers in the 1990s.
All I have to say to that is, wow. What a shameless attempt to use arbitrary stats for your own self-serving cause.
In the 10 years from 1984-1993, San Francisco won 130
the record, and New England doesn't even have a chance to come close to it.
For those keeping score at home, even if the Patriots win 12 games this year like the asshat writer seems to think, the 49ers basically did better than them by a full unbeaten season during the same stretch of time.
