    I love watching that on highlights, always makes me smile. That was probably the fastest Smith ever ran in his life!

    So Grogan was tough. And Brady isn't? Grogan was also an interception machine, with the game on the line he was pretty much guaranteed to throw it to the other team. I'll take the Hall of Fame "princess" any and every day of the week and twice on Sundays over the tough guy Grogan. I guess winning doesn't really matter when you can be a tough guy, take a big hit and throw a pic to lose the game . You must be a Favre fan.

    2001 would get my vote. I liked Grogan too but he was a mediocre QB.

    2001. The first time is always the sweetest. They were huge underdogs and pulled off upset after upset in the playoffs. Taking down the greatest show on turf was also awesome. Plus that defense kicked serious butt.

    When within the first few plays of the game I heard that one of the Ram's receivers had broken a rib after a Pats hit, I knew we had this game. We were going to bully them to a championship. And of course I still remember Ty Law's big pick for the touchdown. And the kick that was heard round the world. Heck of a team, heckuva of a run. :)

    I think the 2004 team was the perfect combo of 2001 and 2007. They had 2007's killer instinct as evidenced by the absolute destruction of Indy and Pit in the playoffs and 2001's ability to make huge game changing plays whenever they needed them, as evidenced by the opening night win over the Colts etc. etc.

    For me 2001 was the most exciting, 2003 was fun, 2004 was the perfect storm and 2007 was exhausting.

    That's right listen to whatever ESPN tells you, they have no agenda.

    They pass more now than ever before, yeah that must explain Grogan's int's. Great logic.

    The three championship teams were all great. After those, my favorite was the 96 team. They rebounded from an injury plagued year to create an exciting team in all three phases of the game. Even in their regular seasonlosses (save for the loss to Denver), they were right in the game until the end and lost to teams who were just better at that time.

    This was also the first year I went to a Patriots game so it was extra special :D



    2007 was too damn stressful, though I would have to put them at #1 if they had won SB42.

    2001 fo sho! The way they gutted out wins was the best, by far my favorite team to watch. Honestly I wouldn't bet against that team head to head vs any other team ever.

    Nothing worse in sports than hopelessness. Thank god I was in college during that brutal 4-year stretch before Tuna and Kraft as there were plenty of ways to dull the pain.

    Re: Favorite Patriot Team?

    LMAO.........yeah, you sound like someone who really knows what they're talking about

    in 1978, teams threw for 71158 yards with 468 TD's and 639 INT's
    in 2009, teams threw for 111851 yards with 710 TD's and 525 INT's

    the divisional game against the colts was a work of art.......one of the top 3-5 best played games IMO


    as players, coaches though, I like the late 1970's teams 1976 in particular

    You're not very bright are you? Those stats prove you wrong but as usual you're too dense to notice. It says that Grogan like most QB's of his era would be lucky to be in the league in todays game, that Brady is light years better than him. The Pats have one of the top 2 or 3 QB's of all time on their team and you're pining away for a QB who was benched on numerous occasions, threw more picks than TD's and whose playoff record was 0-3. All this because Brady gestured to the ref when Suggs illegally went after his knee with intent to injure. Remember the whines and tears coming Suggs and Ray Ray when the same exact thing happened to him? You probably don't because nothing was made of it. Maybe you should try thinking before you post instead of using all of your energy being the boards resident A-hole.

    Re: Favorite Patriot Team?

    proves me right.......QB's haven't changed, dopey.....the game changed....QB's are a protected species now......grogan always has been and always will be a tougher player than brady......I understand you're just a typical bandwagoner and can't identify with a whole lot that happened in the more distant past.....that's fine.

    Yeah that was a stellar game. As far as players Brady is my all time favorite (obviously from my sn). Although it may seem cliche to say it, but I love his attitude, his work ethic, his playing style, and so much more about the player. Then there's Vrabel and Bruschi. I love the Pats of the 00s.

    I do think brady has changed over the years......part of it is the different scheme of the last few years which does not allow him to be patient the way he used to be and he's not looking around the field like he used to....

    I don't get it.....you take a guy who used to be able to distribute the ball consistently to a 1/2 dozen targets, and make him distribute it to 2......its pretty much all scripted now

    That's a good point. I guess that's what happens when you get high caliber receivers though. Show's how adaptable Brady is. He's the ultimate system quarterback. And the two receivers would have worked out great if it wasn't for one miracle pass. We'd be talking about the 2007 team as the greatest NFL team of all time. No question about it. But I see what you mean. Brady has changed.
