Nope. As long as Tom "Touch me and you'll be fined" Brady is still around, it won't ever change.

The article words it so as to make me believe the Patriots got top marks for ownership whilst the Steelers didn't, which I find hard to believe. The whole exercise seems a bit pointless, but more importantly off the mark. I would say that overall Green Bay were a better organisation than the Ravens, for example, and it names the 'outstanding' Andy Reid who's helped the Eagles choke in the big game year in year out. Pretty poor attempt to fill up time in the offseason.

Either one will occur from now on anyways so I don't think it matters

QBs have been getting hurt since forever but God forbid Lord Brady gets hurt.

Completely absurd. Even though I hate Brady, and despise Belicheat, they are pretty good. However, are they forgetting that the head coach had to cheat to get to and win some of those superbowls? And if Bill Belicheck was so amazing, how come they couldnt even make the playoffs last year? Retarded. I do respect Kraft, but saying that the coaching staff and ownership in New England even compares to Pittsburgh is completely out of the question

I've never heard of a team not making the playoffs and becoming number 1 in some power rankings the next year. Bottom line is the Patriots D is getting older, and although they've have some key pickups in the offseason, They won't even compare to their one great, almost undefeated season. I do personally believe that God-forbid Big Ben got injured, Batch could take us into the playoffs. He knows the playbook inside and out, and has done some pretty amazing things when our team was in a bind.

I don't think we even need to go into detail about how much bullshit this is.

The Patriots? The very same Patriots that haven't won anything in the past five years and still being the hot pick despite this? The very same Patriots who prior to 2001 were widely irrelevant in the New England area? The very same Patriots who were caught cheating and are known to have a classless bastard as a coach?

Above the Steelers who have won two Super Bowls since they won their last one?

Above the Packers? Above the Giants and Colts who also won a Super Bowl since their last one? Above the 49ers and Cowpukes?
