    Points out the 2 teams spent a week together in camp. Says it will be a "heck of a chess match" between Sean Payton and Bill Bellichick as to who will win. Says the NE offense shuttles players in and out of the lineup like New Orleans does.

    I'm pretty sure he picked the Patriots to lose vs. the Steelers, Colts, Jets, and Bears, so what is he trying to pull off? A reverse hex or something?

    That's what it sounded like when I watched "The Road to Dallas" last night. It's either he's going for the reverse hex, or his producers told him that he was being an insufferable douche when it came to the Pats and to tone it down a bit. Reading a thread on the Colts forum today, they were even mentioning Faulk's obvious bias toward anything Patriots...

    Would be a great match up, but the Saints have a tough rough road with seeding and injuries. We'll see what happens.

    The stupidity of Colts fans often manages to rival that of the Raiders fans, and even Jets supporters. It's comforting to know that blind stupidity is rampant in the heartland as well as on the Coasts.

    Are you talking about the thread that I posted itself (what Faulk said about Brady and Colts fans agreeing with him) or the notion that Faulk is generally negative when it comes to the Pats?

    Generally, I don't subscribe to the conspiracy theories about 96.5% of the media having a hard-on for the Pats, but with Faulk I think it's kind of obvious that he has some sort of bias against the team.

    I don't know why that Pats fan is arguing with the Colts fan over who is a better QB. Ne says Tb Colts say PM, that isn't going to change, why waste time arguing? Some of the dumbest stuff i've ever read in that thread.

    I really can't see the saints going to the super bowl unless the eagles beat the packers. Saints won't beat the bears in chicago.

    Hopefully. The games he does are blowouts for us alot of the time.

    You can't honestly pick against the Pats with the except of maybe the Raven because of last year. But even then, both teams have changed alot. The Patriots have the best record, #8 scoring D only allowed 7 or fewer points in the past 5 games, most turnovers and the #1 scoring offense that set the NFL record for fewest turnovers.

    Not everything is perfect with the team but nobody else has been nearly impressive this season and we've beaten 6 of the 11 playoff teams in head to head matches this season.

    A Patriots v Saints Super Bowl would be pretty cool. I like like both teams a lot, but I'd have to root for NE. Brady needs to get five rings so there is little debate about GOAT.

    With one more ring, I can make a pretty strong argument that Brady is the G.O.A.T. hands down, and I'm sure most on here could.

    Didn't Montana play with some guy NFLN called The Greatest Player in NFL History?

    No, it was a general statement, albeit inspired by some of the posts on that thread.

    I agree with you about a fourth ring. I'm just being greedy so it's not even a debate. ;)

    But good point about Montana. If Andre Johnson ever bolts from the Texans, I'm secretly hoping he ends up in NE. That would be an epic partnership.

    I didn't bother going through more than the first two pages of that thread, but I'm amazed at their rewriting of history.

    The Colts did indeed have a losing season before Manning arrived, going 3-13 in Harbaugh's last year as quarterback. But these folks make it sound like they had a losing streak on par with what the Lions have had for the last decade, and Manning single-handedly reversed that trend. In reality prior to that 1997 3-13 season with an injured Harbaugh, the Colts had back-to-back playoff seasons and had not had a losing season since their last Jeff George season in 1993.

    On top of that when Manning arrived they had a 25-year old Marshall Faulk and a 26-year old Marvin Harrison to compliment him. On top of that the Colts went 3-13 again in Manning's first year, as he threw 28 interceptions. In addition to not single-handedly turning the team around, he did not immediately turn them around like some Colt fans are claiming.

    It's ironic that the reasons they give to try to make Manning look better than Brady - that the team got better right away on his arrival - actually work more in Brady's favor in the never-ending Brady vs. Manning debate. At the very least that's really grasping at straws if you're trying to say Manning is better than Brady because pre-Manning the Colts were 3-13 in comparison to pre-Brady the Patriots were 5-11.

    For clarification I think you need only to look were Marshal was born.

    Place of birth: New Orleans, Louisiana

    He was one of the only correspondents picking us last season, so I think this is more of a wish/homer, than an educated guess. I doubt this has to do with any hate for the Patriots or he would have picked a different team to face us in the super bowl.

    Really not sure why that would occure, you would think a responsible corespondent that did their homework would not, based on stats and facts. But then explain why anyone is picking the Seahawks over the Saints? Makes little sense, but they do it.

    Yep, one more ring and Brady trumps Montana. The rings are equal, but Brady has more records. The debate would be over. The SF fans know this , and they more than any fan base, do not want you to win a SB. Ive talk to a number of them.

    As Keyser said, he doesn't need five rings for that distinction. He has done things no other player has done with less offensive talent around him, all during the salary cap era. You can't make much of an evaluation before he has called it quits anyway. I'm not going to be more impressed with him as a quarterback if he breaks other records just by hanging around well past his expiration date the way Favre did. He has already done a lot as a main contributing factor to his team's success, and I expect him to do a lot more.

    Bolded statement goes unnoticed far too often. The fact that this team has had 70's steelers-like success during the salary cap age is impressive. 10+ wins every year, very good shot at AFCE title every year, wildcard at the worst (11-5 and no playoffs? honestly? bs imo!).

    Watching Faulk debate Michael Irving over Tom Brady's place in history last week was painful. Faulk's message was clear "I hate Tom Brady" making it sound like circus monkeys could have the same success under BB's magical system
    . He compared Brady to bradshaw and Big ben but he'll never touch an Elway, Manning or Montana. Even thought Mannings one Ring was more impressive than Toms 3 and a 4th, 5th or 6th wouldn't change his mind either. Irving's jaw dropped for a minute, dumb founded by faulk's irrational hate fest.

    he still hates the Pats, no doubt. link to debate below

    So basically, people everywhere are stupid. I can buy into that. It extends overseas, too, believe me.

    Yeah I think that is the major accomplishment, perhaps mostly because of the roster turnaround on the other side of the ball. Brady can make things happen throwing to nearly anybody, we saw that in 2006. But can you imagine if they had the benefit of the defense always being how it was in 2003?

    Historically you almost might have to look at the BB/TB era Pats as having been two different dynasties because there has been so many changes in roster that is kind of hard to consider this 14 win season as being part of the same run from a few years ago.

    I dont understand were you got Faulk hates Brady from this? It seemed to be a simple opinion that Manning took a team from nothing and Brady didn't. Seems wrong to me, but Im not seeing the hate in this. He grouped Brady with montana.
    Maybe Im slow, just not seeing it.

    He put Brady with Bradshaw and Big Ben and Montana, Manning, Elway etc. were the big boys. Saying Brady never had to deal with pressure, anybody could fill that role, come on. I've caught a few shows we're he's talked this nonsense, any professional analyst slanting TB, sub-par or average has issues. He has issues with the Pats and needs to grow up. Maybe the latest shows are on a high note haven't seen them.

    I've been polluting the thread with old Marshall material, couldn't help it.

    In regards to the saints vs Pats Super bowl, Drew Brees brings his A game to big games, a class act, can't say enough about him and don't want play him. Seems like a game that would come down to the last possession,(scary). Pats vs Falcons

    These new patriots are cutch play makers, as long as the D doesn't go into swiss cheese mode they're golden. :cool:

    "were the big boys" What does that mean?

    I would like you to post those statements or vids. Faulk is defiantly a Saint homer, excuses my ignorance, Im not seeing that he hates the Patriots. Thats a pretty interesting statement considering he picks you for the SB.
    You think everyone hates Brees when hes not up for MVP? In 2008,2009, and when he beats vick in all # except interceptions, and with a injury and no RB's?
    We don't see the hate there, we see them missing the point, but not hate. Maybe were navie but were just not seeing it.
    Feel some love think it over.

    You really cannot overestimate your average patsfans.com poster's abillity to go into a frothing seizure at the merest hint of criticism or preference for another team/player by a media dude.
