    njpatsfan Third String But Playing on Special Teams

    I think the case can be made that winning 10 consecutive playoff games is harder to do than win 16 regular season games. Especially in the salary cap era.

    - The perfect season happened only 6 years after the 'modern' NFL began, before the salary cap.
    - There have been a bunch of 15-1's. Only 2 9-in-a-row playoof teams.
    - Teams can go to cap hell for short term dominance over a single year '98 vikings) - but being dominant in the playoffs over such a long time period is miraculous

    Here's to making the case for 11.

    It's the Patriots, not the Colts or the '72 Dolphins, so it's not as impressive :violent:

    All I know is when we're beating records of Lombardi's Packers, Noll's Steelers, Walsh's 49ers, etc, we are moving past the greats of all time.

    Definition of a Dynasty

    To me, this is the measure of a dynasty -- unbeaten in a string of superbowl campaigns. Truly dominent.
