    tied with a few other teams.

    I'd say at the top its

    1. Chicago
    2-5. Denver, Baltimore, San Diego, Philadelphia

    Then NE tied with

    Giants, Falcons, New Orleans, Jacksonville, Charlotte, and maybe even the Rams.

    Based on how NE has played, they're top 1/3 of the league, but not by much.

    What do all you Homers think?

    I think BALTIMORE is a ridiculously insane inclusion on your list.

    ohhh god, i just checked ur post again.

    You are supposed to be one of those douchebag trolls right???

    Clues:
    1.) you refer to the Panthers as "charlotte" so that people will bring it up later and you'll get more attention. (hopefully this is the last time)
    2.) you call us all homers.


    Go to hell.

    I've been a Pats fans for 20+ years. YOU go to hell.

    I'm just honest about how good they are, not a worthless homer with no life like you.

    while i would have had trouble seeing baltimore as better than us before today, mcnair just got taken out of their game with a concussion, leaving them with the fearsome Kyle Boller as their qb... just going out on a limb here, but i think if we played the ravens, it would be a massacre.

    Before today I had a personal ranking of

    1. Bears
    2. Chargers
    3. Eagles
    4. Broncos
    5. Patriots
    6. Bengals
    7. Colts
    8. Ravens
    9. Seahawks
    10. Jaguars

    I'm not quite sure what I did with the Saints or Panthers, they may have slipped down the back of the couch.

    Well, like I said, you're a homer.

    Pats best win was over Cincy....who just lost to rookie QB led hapless Bucs.

    They struggled against Buffalo...who just lost to hapless Lions.

    Bravo!

    I said the Pats were at the top of the league, but didn't ball wash them and say they were absolutely the best. So you're offended. Can you spell homer?

    Yeah right...only "20 year fan" I've ever seen that calls the Patriots the "patsies" and actually stated that if they started losing again he would pick another team and stop being a "fan". Your joke, and pathetic to be pretending to be a Pats fan, get a life. Face it you just have no credibility it has nothing to do with being "homers". You don't say things to actually contribute, you do it to insult the Pats.

    um too bad NFL doesnt work like that..thats like saying we should be able to beat Colts by more than 10 because we beat Jets by 7 and Jets barely lost to Colts .

    um yea doesnt work like that

    its matchups..how well you play against them and many other factors. so Bears should be able to beat us by more than 3 TDs right? laugh

    i never said we were the best either. but your analysis is HORRIBLE and stupid. find me saying were the best. we've been in the top 1/3 of league last few years. scores dont matter. record does. SB is the goal wether you win by 3 verse the worst team in NFL or beat the best team in NFL by 40

    1.) Chicago
    2.) Denver
    3.) New England
    4.) San Diego
    5.) Philadelphia

    Baltimore is a fraud, New Orleans is playing over their heads. Only Denver makes me nervous to be honest. I have a feeling that Chicago will come back to Earth here pretty soon.

    We're 4th behind Chicago, Indy and Denver. I see us moving up to #1 November 26th :)

    I agree that they're about 6th in the league. Though, i'd rank the teams ahead of the Pats a bit differently than you did.

    1. Chicago
    2. Denver
    3. Indy
    4. San Diego
    5. Philadelphia
    6. New England
    ----
    7. New Orleans
    8. Carolina
    9. Seattle
    10. St. Louis

    Baltimore and Cincy are paper tigers.

    You sir, are an homerphobe. Are you afraid that deep down inside that you have homer tendencies?

    You use the word "homer" repeatedly which means you fear homers for some reason.

    I agree with your top 10, except that I would switch the pats and philly.

    What's with the blasting of mcbee? He's only got 250 posts but he's been here for as long as I can remember. He's no troll.

    He has the Pats 6th - I'll go along with OldEnglish's Top 5 list here.

    There's nothing unPatriotic about assessing the team less than #1 in mid-October. Anyone who doesn't understand that doesn't understand the Patriots or the NFL for that matter.

    You want to peak in January - not October.

    Those who want to delude themselves that the Patriots have been playing like the best team in football are making themselves look like morons.

    Not even the New England Patriots themselves would have you believe that.

    Nope. Pats are Top Five. (But more like three, four or five, behind at least Denver, and San Diego and maybe the NFC pretender.)

    1)Baltimore is a pretender not a contender.
    2)Philly has warts. Receiving and rushing is very, very, thin...
    3) The Bears are a good club. Aside from the Sea Chickens without Alexander at Home, have they played anyone not contending for the first pick in the draft? Look it up. (the answer is NOooo. ) They will end up with a great record, as they play exactly one, O-N-E, 1, (the number between zero and two) games remaining against a winning club, (the Patriots).:cool:

    Actually AZpatsFan, the Bears have FOUR remaining games against teams who currently have a winning record. That's the number between three and five. They play:

    Vikings (3-2)
    Patriots (4-1)
    Giants (3-2 on a brutal schedule)
    St Louis (4-2)

    As for who they have played so far, I would not describe Minnesota as contending for the number one pick.

    No rankings, but there are a couple of teams I don't think we can beat right now:

    Denver (proven)

    San Diego (way more team speed on both sides of the ball than we have)

    Thats about it. Chicago and Philly would be tough games, but winnable. Indy? Foreget about it. Maroney and Dillon (if both are healthy) will go through their D like shi!t through a goose. I expect close to 300 yards rushing in that game.

    I don't think people are blasting him because of his ranking, but because of the fact he saw the need to ask how us HOMERS feel in his original post. Simply asking us of our opinion is good, but there was no need to, in my opinion, insult all of us.

    1 - Chicago. I want to say the wheels are going to come off of this bandwagon but so far they've earned it.
    2 - Indy. If there was a Super Bowl trophy for regular seasons Indy would be the new Green Bay. Too bad about that whole postseason thing, though.
    3 - Denver. Denver lost to Miami to open the season last year and St. Louis to open the season this year. Since then they've been pretty good.
    4 - New England.
    5 - Seattle - I don't hold that blow out against them that much, it was just one game.
    6 - Baltimore
    7 - SD
    8 - New Orleans. Maybe they're even for real.
    9 - Carolina
    10 - Giants

    That being said a lot of you guys are morons for the way you handle stuff like this when someone ranks the Patriots too low. Who really gives a crap about season rankings, all I care about is the Lombardi.

    Three teams are ahead of us -- the two unbeaten ones and the one with the dominating defense that always seems to beat us, including two spankings since January. For all the warts, I don't see any of the others as being ahead of us, although SD worries me somewhat and I'm hopeful that Indy will crumple against teams that know how to win.

    Joe, I believe you may be thinking of "Arrelbee" , who I've noticed contributes to logical discussions about strategy and other aspects of the game.

    This loser's MO is to hijack game day threads by focusing on Tom Brady's, and I quote, "gay tendencies" , and claiming that he didn't follow the Pats during their lean years and he only likes them since they've become champs. Furthermore, he/she claims that as soon as they start losing again its on to another team.

    Check the game day thread from the Miami game. It's all there.

    No way this guy is a real Pats fan...just a closet faiders fan with nothing to root for..even calls the Pats the "patsies" which is also in the Miami thread....you really need to read that Joe before you defend this loser..

    Ah - though 250 posts is a pretty active troll - they usually get banned or give up long before that.

    Still - he baited and you all took the bait. Said that the Pats were the 6th best team - which is NOT an insulting or trollesque statement - not too far off the mark at all... and called on "homers" to dispute it.

    Frankly, anyone who thinks a Top 5 or even Top 6 rating for the Pats is an INSULT probably IS a "homer" because that's about what they are.

    I did look over his posts at your suggestion though... he's no Homer, that's for sure - and on the spectrum of Patsfans here he's nowhere near the "everything the Patriots do is great, Tom Brady can do no wrong, just drink your koolaid and shut up" end of things... but having another contrarian around here shouldn't be viewed as a bad thing

    And yes he's called the Pats the Patsies before - both when he predicted they'd lose to the Bengals and when he predicted they'd trounce the Dolphins.

    I just don't think you can throw this guy under the bus as a troll just because he says the Pats are a Top 6 team, and that's what a lot of folks did.
