Default Patriots: Team of the decade?

The Patriots are widely considered by many to be the "Team of the decade". Do I agree with the majority? Nay.

Now, when you look at the Steelers two superbowls in the last decade, a number of things spark. At least in my eyes.

One: Patriots didn't win a SuperBowl in between the Steelers two SuperBowl wins of that decade. Also, Steelers have Three AFC titles during this time, opposed to the Patriots One.

Two: With success, comes controversy, at least in the Patriots case. The Patriots suffered plenty of controversy regarding their success, and haven't won a SuperBowl since the allegations of cheating came up.

So, guys. Looking at the sucsess of the two teams in the past decade. I ask you one thing. Who deserves the most recognition?


My thoughts:

The Steelers have one Two SuperBowls, both of which came without much controversy. One of which came from a wildcard seed, winning every game on the road. The only thing that hinders the match up, is the Steelers inability to beat the Pat's during the Regular Season.

Regular season isn't the playoffs, and it doesn't have a Super Bowl.

---Steelers are the team of the decade.

As for Sunday, Steelers will beat the Patriots. And guys, you ready for this?

When the Steelers we're ready to play the Titans, I made a statement. I said the Steelers running game would be explosive---Explosive it was.

This weekend, it will show it's head again.

Any given Sunday.

Also, I understand the last decade doesn't matter. This is 2011. But i'm a fan of the Steelers, as all of you are. As a fan, i'm proud when looking back at our past, and excited when looking forward into our future. Right now, the team is focused on right now. That's all their focused on.

For anyone who's agitated with my thoughts when looking back. I'm sorry. I have a feeling after Sunday, i'll have a lot to write about regarding the future :)

The Patriots went to 4 SB's and won 3 as opposed to us going to 3 and winning 2 (actually does last year even count from 2000-2010?). They also almost nearly went undefeated and have beaten us almost every head-to-head matchup with their starting QB. We've easily been the best team since Ben arrived but if you count 2000-2003, then the Pats have the edge.

The patriots* 3 SBs come under a lot of video evidence controversy. If they truly want to be a team of any decade, do it without cheating!

When I look at the term "Team of the decade". One thing comes to mind: Super Bowls. With the Patriots leading the Super Bowl count of the last decade, one thing comes to mind: The controversy surrounding their success. And with that being said. Patriots: 3-1-?. Steelers 2-1-0. What is the third column for?

The controversy statistic.

So, do you guys think all of the Patriots rings we're controversial?

And they haven't won since getting caught. I wouldn't be surprised if their still cheating! It's only a matter of time until they reveal Bellicheat has mind reading abilities supplied to him by the almighty King Godell in a pricey surgery which involved three colonoscopy's, all of which we're voluntary!

Ok, that was a little off topic.

If there was no cheating issues I would say Pats got it. We've been better since Ben as mentioned, but they have the 16-0 reg. season and 3/4 SB's, and they have beat us almost every time. All that said, since they haven't won a significant game since cheating, it makes you wonder if thats the main reason they were so good. Also did they win the SB the year the refs made up the "tuck rule" for Brady?

I believe it was implemented in the 2001 season. It was called against the Raiders in a loss to New England in the 2001 Divisional Playoff Game. Resulting in controversy.
