    so it is a no brainer that if you guys go 19-0 and win the super
    bowl you are in the top 3 teams of all time.

    but what if you lose to my chargers by 1 point
    (as I hope you will)

    where would the team be ranked then?

    Top 3 teams? You mean top team ever. Can't anyone ever give credit where it's due...?!


    And if we loose we are still in the top ten :)

    Ain't happenin' Rob. Sorry, can't even entertain your question. In any "regular" year anything would be possible, including losing at home to a depleted Chargers team. Just not THIS year. We're watching a once in a lifetime team for the ages. Good luck with your rationalization though.

    I am sure the Colts thought there was no chance in the world
    they were going to lose also.

    100% of the experts picked the Colts

    guess what

    they did

    :eek:

    There's little to no chance the Chargers will cause an upset.....

    BUT, if the Pats were to fail to win a Super Bowl, they obviously shouldn't be ranked among the all-time great teams.

    Re: if the Patriots lose to my Chargers were do they rate amoung all time great teams

    Sorry Rob, I'm a Bolts fan and I think the Patriots will win this weekend.

    They're injury free. They made some great off-season moves. Brady's playing the best he has ever played (did you see that string of completions vs. Jacksonville?). Coaching is superb. 17-0 record. I could go on and on.

    Chargers will put up a good fight, but I'm afraid it won't be good enough.

    The only rationalization as to why this Patriots team won't be considered the best team ever would be from die hard football fans. The reasoning would be that Brady plays in an era where quarterbacks are pampered like no other. That if he was subjected to getting the snot beat out of him each and every game the Pats may not have gone undefeated this year. There's some truth to that, although it doesn't take away from what they've done this year at all.

    ok and the chargers have nothing going for them


    1) 8 pro bowlers
    2) beat INDY twice this season
    3) won 12 of the last 14 games


    :rolleyes:

    Is it a Tanzanian water buffalo or a Cameroonian water buffalo? And is the VW also desiccated?

    if you own the chargers, what are you doing posting online a few days before the biggest game of your lifee ("my chargers")


    its so funny how week after week, fans of other teams come in and talk about how their team is gonna beat the patriots, and EVERY week, they are wrong, and are not to be sceen again. You chargers fans already had your chance this year, and you lost. And yes, actually it is the same team that we played in week 2, and I hate when people say its not. It's the 2007-2008 chargers, just like week 2.

    I know that. Media loves Colts and everybody hates BB and Pats for strange reasons.

    Seriously, your team nearly lost last Sun if Colts player did not DROP the ball 3 times.

    TB is a better QB than PM and BB is a better coach than TD if you look at their resume.

    07 Pats is a new and improved team and It is better than past PATs team.

    Do you believe one moment that BB will allow your Chargers win this Sun.?

    do you know why people wish.? because they don't have whatever they wish.

    Yeah, it's terrible when fans of underdog teams actually think there team might have a chance in a game. I'm sure you all felt the same way against the Rams all those years ago.

    I mean, really...why even bother to tune in? They may as well just cancel the next few weeks, move onto baseball & mail the Lombardi to Kraft...

    Sometimes you have such a bad attitude. Do you know why I feel like the Chargers don't have a chance? Because I respect your team! I watched that game and have no idea how you lost it. You played worse than you have all season. It was a pathetic performance. I feel better about our chances after watching your team lay down! I have no idea how the Chargers fans or players walk away from that game feeling good about themselves, but if they do, good for them.

    Re: if the Patriots lose to my Chargers were do they rate amoung all time great teams

    Roll your eyes all you want. Nobody said they have nothing going for them. The Chargers are a good team-fact. Do we think they will beat the Pats? No. Could they beat the Pats? Sure.

    But...having a team of pro bowlers means nothing. Beating Indy twice also means nothing. The first game you beat them, you were a healthy team. Indy was not. They were battered and bruised and Manning was throwing to third string receivers. Dwight Freeney, arguably one of the league's best pass rushers was out toward the end of the game. In addition, the weather was horrible and the Chargers came within a Vinatieri missed chip shot of losing. The Chargers did beat the Colts this past weekend. Which was a great accomplishment. Again, however your team was given many gifts: (Harrison fumble, two ints that should never have happened, etc.). Heck, the Chargers even overcame injuries and bad officiating. But to claim that beating the Colts twice is a huge accomplishement is flawed.

    Also, you say that winning 12 of your last 14 games is huge. Sure it is. However, who did you lose to in there? The Patriots. And, who did you beat? Let's look, shall we?

    Denver
    Oakland
    Houston
    Indy
    Baltimore
    Kansas City
    Tennessee
    Detroit
    Denver
    Oakland
    Tennessee
    Indy

    And, the Chargers lost to:

    Minnesota
    Jacksonville

    Point: Who in that list above made the playoffs? Tennessee did. And you struggled against them in both games. Indy did...but I already discussed why the first win was not a huge accomplishment. The teams you lost to ran all over you. In fact, Adrian Petersen rewrote the record book on your defense for rushing yards.

    Look, nobody is dissing the Chargers...but to say that they will beat the Patriots because they have 8 pro-bowlers, have won 12 games against mostly bad teams and beat Indy twice is simply foolish.

    You wrote the same thing before the Jacksonville game.

    Don't you have any new material?

    Although I wouldn't start a thread like this (as it's borderline inflamatory coming from a SD fan), I think it's a legitimate question. Im not predicting a win for us......certainly not on this forum. But IF it happened (and yes, I recognize that it's a big IF), where would the Pats be rated? Hey, it's a long week and just something to talk about.
