    Is an insane homeless person. Agree? Disagree? Discuss? Judging by his comments on Sportscenter I say insane.

    yea, he was ranting as if the Pats have been talking alot about it. Every time I hear a Patriot it's focusing on the game at hand.

    Greatest rant I've ever seen. Just reading the comments can't do it justice.

    "They have what....10 more icebergs on that Titanic voyage. And nobody's made it across those waters except for us! So we're sitting here docked on the other side waitin' for ya!"

    Then the don't call me line...

    "Call me when you're next door movin furniture in! And then I'll be standing there...in my tux waiting for my bride!"

    Just insane. If someone can find the video I'd be in their debt.

    "They're comparing them to a 17-0 team? If they were 17-0, but I think they are like 10 games short right now, right? They got 10 more icebergs to go through in this titanic trip that they're talking about. So far nobody's made it across their except us! (crazy look in eyes). So we're over docked here waiting on ya!"

    "I'm telling ya I respect the Patriots if they do that, but right now they haven't done that. So come to me, like I said, don't call me me when you're in my town, call me when you're on my block and I see ya next door moving your furniture in, thats when I'll know you're going to the Championship and you're about to play. And if you win it I'll be dressed up in a tuxedo waiting on my bride."

    I think the last time Mercury went 17-0 was when he snorted 17 lines at a Christmas Party.

    That was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Icebergs, furniture, dressed up in a tux, that had it all.

    It looked like they talked to him on a golf course. Or was that just a park with a bench that he sleeps on?

    I don't really see the problem. He's correct in that it's very early to be talking seriously about going undefeated. All it takes is one bad game, and the Patriots still haven't even played half their games (7 regular season and 3 postseason to go in order to go undefeated).

    There's a lot of wisdom in that rant. Kind of funny way to put things but the metaphors are good.

    I would hardly say there were any "icebergs" along the way in the Dolphins' journey to 17-0.

    Make these Patriots play a .400 schedule 50 times and they'll walk out of it 950-0.

    And guys, take into consideration that he has probably been asked the same question for the last x number of years whenever any team started with a 6-0 record. So, he must be tired of answering the same old replies mid season when none of the teams ever made it.

    Put yourself in his shoes and think how you would answer it. First time you would certainly be polite and respectful blah blah blah. And then the next year, the year after, and the year after....:eek:

    I heard the clip on WEEI - my thought was "he's right"

    But of course its just the fans who are getting excited - the team's taking it one day at a time

    But yes - with 7 games left in the regular season and another 3 in the playoffs, we're not in his neighborhood yet...

    I just look forward to taking him literally about him showing up with a tuxedo when we "join" the Dolphins!

    Agree.

    And the just hearing the name Mercury Morris - his name sounds right out of a hollywood script - bring back bad memories to old time Pats fans. Back in the early 70s, our defense was slow and Mercury was fast - very fast.

    He'd kill us twice a year.

    BTW, note the description on the side of the Youtube:

    "They get some work, they get paid, they move on!"

    So maybe the only Patriot Mercury Morris respects is Asante Samuel? :)

    I don't think that is really the point. He was speaking as though he were talking directly to the Patriots which is absolutely assanine since on one the Patriots has said boo about going undefeated.

    It just showed how frustrated he's getting with the thought of the Patriots going undefeated.

    Also, any true professional would never take the threat of their record being broken personally and get angry about it. The man is an idiot.

    And this is what causes you call him insane?

    Holy crap, do you have thin skin. Dude, those guys have been hounded for years every time some KC or Indy starts at 7-0. They'd like to delay the commentary until the season progresses to something more meaningful.

    And don't lecture me about how "it's different this time." They hear that every year. He's just pushing the media back until a later date, so get over it and let him.

    He's actually using re-treaded lines from the last time when the colts were making a run at it.

    I recall him using the 'same neighborhood' stuff back then and it got a lot of play, so he's using it again for the reaction. It's valid and funny and all, but old, tired stuff.

    the media is the only one that likes to harp on this each each. the teams doing it never say anything, especially since it's so early.

    Didn't he do hard time on the rock pile for selling drugs? I'm sure his mind is as sharp as ever.

    He's right. They're TEN games away from an undefeated record. They've only played nine. All the talk about "don't call me when you're in town...call me when you're in the neighborhood" is basically saying leave the guy alone until the Pats are something like 16-0 or better.

    Although if the Pats DO get to 16-0, I'm dying to see another interview with him. I bet he'll start having the shakes.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Mercury Morris was the first NFL player I knew of, watching games as a kid. I'll never forget his 1980s public service announcement about drugs, too, when in the middle of his 3rd-person narrative, he suddenly switches to the 1st person: "... because I couldn't control my lust for cocaine."

    I don't care too much what he says now, I'll tune it out and remember the good old days! (And let's go 19-0!)

    It's pretty sad that ESPN had to go to an ex convict to get a comment.The media sinks to a new low.

    While I think the smart thing for ex-Phins to do is STFU, I say he has a point. For all this talk and bluster about the Patriots having an undefeated season, fact is they aren't even halfway there yet.

    And it's not as much we Patriots fans as it is the infotainment mediots at the 4-letter network, which now flashes a "Quest for Perfection" frame before its Pats story today, hosted as usual by the bland bimbette Wendi Nix, which is about - surprise - going 19-0. PT Barnum was certainly ahead of his time.
