Default Re: Patriots can be king of all eras

Um, the 1970 Pittsburgh Steelers are still the greatest dynasty of any era.

Four Super Bowls in six years...something the Patriots can't do. They also never lost a Super Bowl in the decade. Something the Patriots did do.

Also, the Dolphins won every game they played in their undefeated season, INCLUDING the Super Bowl...so the argument that their undefeated season was better is moot because in the grand scheme of things, the Patriots lost the most important game of them all.

Not to mention the cheating the Patriots did during their Super Bowl run and the fact that they haven't won a Super Bowl since then doesn't help their case....unless you are a New England Patriots pole polisher, in which that stuff is just meaningless.

Not to mention, when the Steelers win Super Bowl XLIV, and they beat the Pats in Pittsburgh to get there...I think the Steelers should truly be named the team of the decade. Three titles, no cheating.

"King of all eras"

The more I think about this ridiculous title, the more I just have to laugh...

Fu*k the patr*ots.

The Raiders, as bad as they are right now, are still the only team to play in the Superbowl in 4 out of the last 5 decades.

The patr*ots... the team for all eras??? FU*K THAT!

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?

Quote:
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 games. THAT'S 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.

What's more, they only played 14 game seasons up until 1977, so that record is highly dubious. We really only have one decade outside of the two previous where the playing field was level.

I'd take winning percentage over sheer wins any day....

The biggest problem I have with the article is not what everybody here seems to be so singularly focused on - that the writer had the audacity to place New England first in his power rankings - but that he places the Steelers 4th, behind both the Giants and Eagles. Surprised he didn't just go ahead and put the Cowboys up there with them.

I didn't bother to read that far into the "article".

Well, in all fairness, we did lose to the Giants and Eagles last year. But those were also two of our worst games, and the Giants game was just plain crap-ass bad luck.

So yeah, I guess the guy is still retarded. Confirmed.

But we didn't lose to the Gaytriots. In fact, the Steelers demolished them.

The list is his opinion, even if it is retarded Boston Homer logic.
