    He's just bitter that the back to back SB wins of Denver has been entirely eclipsed by the 'boys dynasty before that, and the Pats dynasty after that.

    He sums up his bitterness with his last two lines:

    "We are forced to appreciate the dominance of New England.

    Doesn't mean we have to like it. "

    I read that story, I question that this guy even feels this way or is he preaching to the choir because no one out of NY is attacking the Pats like he did. I know there's lots of hatred towards the Pats, but this is so stupid he can't be serious. The point he makes about Brady is the perfect example. Who the hells knows what happened, but what kind of a woman tells the baby's father she's pregnant through the press ? I personally think Tom was backing away from the relationship because he figured out she's unbalanced (following him around after the breakup, showing up out of the blue while he's at a club). How can this even bring this up when the Broncos employ the Gold Medal winner for fathering babies out of wedlock.

    This moron isn't telling us how he really feels, why, because he won't stand out from the crowd, which is ALL he's trying to do !

    Gotta luv a Donks rump swab taking the high moral ground over the cameragate rule infraction which had zero game consequence when his team was fined draft picks for TWICE making illegal salary cap machinations resulting in their two SB wins. Incredible.

    And I missed the part where he cited evidence that Brady was not the great QB any thinking football fan knows he is.

    Hey, lay off the guy, his home town heroes are as pure as the driven snow; salary cap violations, Travis "me no wear a condom" Henry, numerous arrests this year. Nope, his team is the poster child for all that is right in the NFL.

    Glad you like the article Jake you tool, I'll print it out so you can make copies to line your crib with.

    The king of Patriot haters likes the article, WOW, what a shock.

    Get a grip clambrain and keep the shots coming, we can't wait for more of your brilliant insight............

    It's the concept of "living in glass houses", Jake. Not that you would understand that.

    We have little on your posting history, so we don't really know where you're coming from. But I suspect it's not some place nice....and you repeat tired, worn, incorrect and invalid assumptions ad infinitum, ad nauseum like you have a point to make, only you can't.

    So exactly what's the point, Jake? Enlighten us....

    He can't tell you what his point is as he clearly does not have one, all he does is spew garbage, check out his posts.

    Typical hater.

    It's one thing to register at another fan forum to talk football, it's quite another to do nothing other than throw cheap shots and be a ballbreaker 24/7 with moronic posts/comments etc which are done for no other reason that to stir the pot.

    Lame, pathetic, sad..............

    I love three things about this article (and by love, I mean laugh-out-loud-in-the-face-of-the-retarded-author kind of love):

    "While putting together an MVP-worthy season, receiver Randy Moss wears a sneer."

    Well color me surprised, I was under the impression Moss was a model citizen this whole season and did nothing but say the right things and play football with intensity and joy. I guess I was wrong. </sarcasm>

    Also, comparing the Pats to the Yankees. Sorry buddy, but we're living in a salary capped world here in the NFL, it ain't quite the same. Yeah, people hate winners (jealousy, can't blame them) and will find anything and everything (please note the ridiculous comments about Moss, Belichick and Brady) to tear them down. But this team is so good BECAUSE they are so good...players want to play for this team and are willing to take a pay cut to do so. That genius coach you just disrespected? He's the reason this team is so good, and why great players come here.

    Finally, this whole mess of a statement:

    "Before we assume Belichick is tougher than Vince Lombardi, before anyone starts mentioning Brady in the same breath as Johnny Unitas, much less Joe Montana, and before some computer geek claims to have simulated a 73-0 victory by these Patriots over the 1940 Chicago Bears, kindly allow me to interject two small words.

    Get serious."

    Ummmm....you're talking about a coach who could very well win his 4th Super Bowl in 7 seasons (not to mention two more as an assistant) and just took home his second Coach of the Year trophy. You're talking about a quarterback who's won 3 Super Bowls, 2 Super Bowl MVP's, just threw for the most touchdowns in a season ever, has the 4th highest (and rising every year) QB rating ever, and has the best winning percentage ever. And you're talking about a team that set all kinds of records, won every single game they've played this season, beat the 2nd and 3rd best teams in football on their fields, scored the most points in NFL history, and set the record for point differential in a season.

    I'm sorry, but you get serious.

    Enough of a rant...I just have to laugh at the insanity of some of these jealous hacks.

    I think you left out John Lynch ripping a players helmet off and throwing across the field.

    I had a simpler take reading this guy--he hates the Pats, but really is more of a whiny sore loser for teams his Denver Post covers--think about it:

    -- 3 months ago his Cinderella Colorado Rockies were owned 4-0 by the Red Sox.

    -- His Denver Broncos have been somewhere between mediocre and disaster for the last season and a half, not even making the playoffs ever since Shanahan cut loose Plummer and went to Cutler. I mean, if you remember early in the 2006 season, they beat the Pats, had great D, and were one of the highest rated teams. OK the Denver Nuggets are good.

    Denver didn't violate the salary cap. Pat Bowlen deferred payments to John Elway and Terrell Davis in order to put money down for the building of Invesco Field at Mile High. The NFL said the Broncos gained no competitive advantage.

    I read the article but for the life of me, I can't imagine anyone taking this seriously .... sounds like a childish rant by someone who hates playing with the big boys...

    Well, what do you expect a hater to do except take cheap shots as he cannot provide any objective criticism, which would be welcomed by NE fans..

    Just goes to show that it takes all types..

    I was at the Giants game and surrounded by Giants fans. They were quite classy and complimented the Pats a lot for their great season. They didn't come across as haters. They did want to win the game though and booed Manning a lot for his time management, especially in the last five minutes of the game. However, I think most were happy with the 35 points. They didn't expect to win... not one of them. I think most were pleasantly surprised they came so close in terms of the final score. It's as if they couldn't believe it.

    Exactly! I stopped reading after "If Bill Belichick is the smartest coach on the planet with the greatest team of all time, then why did he have to cheat?"

    Coming from Denver that's a laugh. Just because the Donks weren't as criticized as the Pats doesn't mean it wasn't as bad. As a matter of fact I'd say it was much much worse. No one to this day can say how "Spygate" helped the Patriots win even one game. But, circumventing the salary cap to keep a loaded roster is directly responsible for wins they should have never had. They had their chance in '05. The refs handed them a win against the Pats and the next week when they had to win it on their own they failed.

    I moved to Denver from Massachusetts about 5 years ago. Beautiful country, but the most ignorant and fair-weather fans I've ever met! Trying to have a civil football conversation always leads to how great Elway was ... sad that they may actually believe he is coming back to play again!

    Making deferred payments = Violating the salary cap.

    (I.e., We can't pay you all the money you want this year b/c of the SALARY CAP, but we will be able to make future payments to you that will equal the present value of the amount you wanted this year).

    These were side agreements that were not disclosed in the contracts submitted to the league. Why not? B/c they violated the SALARY CAP.

    Whatever their motivation to do it (cash flow, etc.), it clearly gave them a distinct advantage vis a vis the salary cap by allowing them to keep their two stars - Elway and Davis - at deflated salary cap numbers while secretly paying them well in excess of those numbers. Do you not see this?

    While I think that you have a valid case against any nefarious activity, Denver did still violate a league rule, just like NE.

    And, just like Denver, the league stated that NE gained no competetive advantage from the filming.

    If you are OK with one, you must be OK with the other and vice versa.

    Did send him an e-mail:
    "Your shade of envy green really suits you well.
    Pats fans had been humiliated by every team for years. Now the table has turned and we are the bad guys? Every dog has his day and we aren't even close to breaking even yet. Watch some old Football Follies and see some of the featured players.

    Did you realize that if Greg Estrada (the Pats "filmer") was sitting in a large refrigerator cardboard packing box on the sidelines, filming away, he would have been doing so legally? Does that sound like the integrity of the game was compromised?
    Your "cheat" crap, is just that. Say..... weren't some team that did fairly well in football a few years ago caught over the salary cap (cheating?)?
    Your "those Broncos could win on any surface" quote was stated correctly and they paid for that right, over and over and over again.

    We have Moss' snear, and after what the media did to him, who can blame him. You had Elway and he had teeth like a 53 Buick!
    I still feel bad for the Browns RB Binner who fumbled on his way at the one yard line, to beating the great Elway. Talk about luck and a fluke!

    Lets see. Joe Greene was what 265lbs-275lbs, about the size of Brandon Jacobs, NY Giant halfback? Jack Lambert, what 220lbs? There are corner backs his size. Jim Taylor? Pats LB Adalius Thomas could catch him running backwards at 270lbs. Mark, it's a different world in the NFL today. It's scary. Hey Sam Huff was my favorite player. He was what 6' 1" and 215 at MLB.

    One other small comment about our QB who happens to be very fertile (ever think that his former love might have "pulled the goalie" as one of our clever Pats fans suggested). I suppose your husband and wife Bronco drug dealers are untouchable?....Thought so.

    By the way, I can't stand Tiger!

    As soon as the word "Cheat" pops up its over,I read no further, no need. After reading all the various reasons to hate the Pats(many of them just made up) i.e. Brady goes out with a different model every night. I decided to come up with a new partial sig. Enough Bull Sh!t is enough. These so called writers will say anything wheather its based on fact or not to tear down the Pats. I suppose there used to be a moral code against doing that at one time . But now if it sells, than who cares if its true or not. :mad:
