    In this morning's top stories:

    • The sun rose
    • We're still in Iraq
    • Oil and water still don't mix and ...
    • Mercury Morris is still a classless bowel movement
    Did anyone hear him on Mike and Mike in the Morning just now? This was his first appearance on the show since the infamous, "don't call me when they're in my town" comment.

    Now he says that IF the Patriots win the Super Bowl and go undefeated, he will "welcome them to his neighborhood as the SECOND best team in NFL history."

    Sheesh. What a clod.

    That's funny, because he was on the PFW online radio show (patriots.com) and seemed much more gracious (crazy-talkative, but gracious). He made a funny comment keeping up the "neighborhood" metaphor about the Pats coming to his house and him offering a plate of cookies that he'd kept inhis freezer for 35 years, but they were still good.

    Guess it depends on whom he talks to. I'd be happy if I were him: two more weeks of interviews. Plus, if the Pats can win, he can horn in on what it was like to be the first undefeated champion. Otherwise, I think fans might lose interest in Miami's story, no matter what his ego tells him.

    Mercury Morris Announces namechange

    He has officially announced that if the Pats finish SB 19-0 he will change his name to URANUS Morris.

    Less than 2 weeks until him and his nursing home residing "boyz" from '72 Doofins are made irrelevant.

    It will be the Patriot Dynasty that will be the benchmark for success for future NFL teams

    I don't know what people expect from him. Do you really think he's going to just start calling this Patriots team the best ever? If you do, you're high. Just as the Patriots won't automatically concede the 'best ever' title to a team that wins one more game in the near future if/when the league adds a 17th regular season game to the schedule.

    Let's see, how about:

    "If the Patriots go undefeated, I will congratulate them on their amazing accomplishment and welcome them to the undefeated club. I think it is probably even more difficult to go undefeated in this era then when we did it, due to the longer season, free agency and the salary cap. I know that something which hasn't been done in 35 years is an amazing accomplishment, just as it was when we did it. In any case, the Patriots deserve congratulations."

    There is no need for him to continue to insist that it is a record which can never be broken, only tied (debatable), that they are a better team because they did it first, and that free agency helped the Patriots because they got Randy Moss and Wes Welker via it (not only false, but irrelevant - there is general agreement that it is much harder to build a dominant team in this era.)

    The undefeated '72 Miami Dolphins are rightfully proud of their status and consider themselves the greatest team in NFL history, and they'll defend that belief. Unlike fans who have nothing better to do than complain about every perceived slight, these players have a legitimate stake in this. They actually played the games.

    I may not agree with Morris, but I understand his position. Take off the homer glasses and the artificial chip on your shoulder and you'll understand his position too.

    Can you not make an argument without adopting the infantile tactic of attempting ridicule the other party? "homer glasses"? "artificial chip on your shoulder"? In your previous post you claimed that "anybody who [thinks that] is high". Grow up.

    Now back to the actual debate - where did I ever say the 72 Dolphins shouldn't be proud of what they did? Do you not think it is possible to be proud of an accomplishment without diminishing someone else's? Actually, you probably do believe that - it seems to fit your maturity level.

    I don't think the Pats will be moving into the 1972 Dolphins' neighborhood. The assisted-living apartments are too small and they all smell like cat pee. I heard that the weekly Wii bowling tournaments are quite a hoot though.

    He is a moron. What the hell is 1000%? Is it more than 100%? He needs to be on a methadone plan. Then go back to school and learn math.

    Pot/kettle...

    Couldn't you have made an argument without calling Mercury Morris a clod? How's life over on hypocrisy lane, oh arbiter of maturity?

    As for the debate, how does his saying New England would be the second best team in NFL history diminish New England's accomplishments? Even if New England wins the Super Bowl, there will be people who will honestly argue that the Bears were better, there will be those who argue that the 49ers were better, and there will be those who'll argue that the Dolphins were better. Your insult of Morris was undeserved based upon the quote you were commenting on, and, to use your choice of words, seems to fit your maturity level. Grow up, yourself.

    You don't see the difference between making an editorial comment about a public figure and directly attacking someone you are speaking with? Of course you don't. Too subtle. Who are you anyway, Mercury Morris's pusher?

    Ahhh.... and more of that 'maturity' you were talking about comes to light.


    I do see a difference. I had the balls to call you out knowing that you could respond. You called out someone who's not going to be defending himself, and you called him out on something that was not even wrong of him to say. Nobody is required to bow at the altar of 19-0, just as people haven't been required to concede the 'best ever' title to the Dolphins up until now just because they went 17-0. New England is striving to become the second undefeated team in NFL history. That doesn't automatically make them the best team ever.

    Your post that started the thread was a silly attack without any legitimate provocation. You got called on it. That's what message boards are for. And, by the way, the last time I checked, Homer wasn't exactly a word on the 'cuss' list.

    Don't bow to 19-0, but in the same breath don't disparage the accomplishment with lunatic, petty, low class remarks.

    Having said that, URANUS Morris is a crackhead loser, who, out of 2 mins of sensationalistic and rating fueled attempts by ESPN, has no business talking about the Patriots since neither is he a reporter, broadcaster, analyst, writer.

    Stop your holier than thou "protectionist" attitude towards a crackhead loser.

    Nobody asked him to come on TV and start making an ASS out of himself. Since he has chosen to do so on his own (probably for some cash), he is completely open to the WRATH of Patriots fans across the nation for the IQ of an amoeba that he carries in the 3 lb coconut of his.

    You on the other hand are a disgrace to Patriots fans......go join the lis of Borges, Felger, Callahan and other mediots on ESPN

    19-0 does override 17-0.....Period. Those Nutbags in Florida can count their votes or skew them any which way, but it means nothing. The PAtriots, if they finish it off at 19-0, are THE BEST TEAM in the history of Football. The measurement of best is statistical performance, and they would've demolished the 17-0 record, which by the way they already have. I'm not even get into the comparison statistically what this team has done and the level of opponents they have beaten vs. the cream puff schedule 72 Dolphins played.

    1.) This is the quote the was cited by the OP as the justification for insulting Morris:

    Are you seriously trying to claim that Morris is a clod because he thinks his undefeated team was better than the current undefeated team?

    2.) Actually, these players and coaches are, in fact, asked to go on television and give their opinions.

    3.) Quit acting like an fool. I was one of those pounding on the "Maroney is glass" clowns, and I've repeatedly stated my opinion that Brady is the best QB ever and this team would be the greatest team ever if it wins the Super Bowl. It doesn't make someone less of a fan just because they choose to be rational. You should try it sometime.

    And, by the way, the Bears and 49ers can put forth statistical arguments for claiming that their teams are the best in NFL history, too.

    edit:

    Some 'statistics' about that Dolphins team:

    10-4
    10-3
    14-0
    12-2
    11-3
    10-4

    That was the Dolphins record over a 6 year period. Pretty damned impressive, actually.

    That 1972 Dolphins team was #1 on offense, #1 on defense and, despite playing a complete ball control style of play, #1 in point differential. It was also second in turnover differential.

    Yes he is a moron for the comments he and his 72 teamates have made so far, including the effin kicker Yepremian(sp). Rather than being gracious about it, he wants to act as if undefeated thus far means nothing.

    You are selectively picking the "kinder" comments. Take the blinders off and dig into what he has been spewing, and his coach has been spewing since Spygate incident.

    Here....read it for yourself.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3173309

    Should we bring up how Dolphins had to pay a #1 pick to Colts after tampering to get Shula ? So Dolphins SB's should get an asterisk too for cheating. People who live in glass houses throw stones.

    Many players are asked to go and give their opinions. Doesnt mean you have to go. If you do go whats the point of knocking the other teams' accomplishments down that their undefeated is not good as your '72 season. Immature, petty, classless. No if ands and buts about it. They are the most classless senile crackhead retards around.

    When you are confronted with fact, it is quit acting like a fool. LoL. Selective Amnesia now ?

    Bears went 18-1
    Dolphins went 17-0

    Last I checked 19-0 trounces both since in the end its all about wins and losses, and SB.

    Now go and stick your head back in the sand

    I'm not selectively picking anything. Read the bloody post that started the thread. I gave you the precise quote the OP was calling Morris out for. And, once again for the mathematically challenged, 19-0 is NOT a better winning percentage than 17-0. If the Patriots win the Super Bowl, BOTH the Dolphins and Patriots will have won every game they played.

    Quit being a knee-jerk homer and learn what the hell you're talking about before posting on it.

    Sure we can compare stats from DIFFERENT ERAS. Ok Dolphins were 67-16 (80% in 83 Games). I can skew it in Pats favor too, 5 Yr period in 80 games played
    2003 14-2
    2004 14-2
    2005 10-6
    2006 12-4
    2007 16-0
    Patriots = 66-14 82.5% Win in 80 Games

    Beats the win % of Dolphins. AND we have same # of SB in 5 yrs that it took them 6 yrs. We have 3 SB wins and 4 SB appearances, which again beats them over 6 yr period.

    Pathetic ! Closet doofin lover

    I've already said that I think this Patriots team will be the best ever if it wins the Super Bowl. You just don't bother to actually read the posts or think on what's posted. I have never claimed the Dolphins were better in 1972. However, it was fun watching you try to skew the data by dumping the Patriots 6th season from consideration, especially because I wasn't comparing the two streaks, but was merely showing that the Dolphins squad was a good one. Your cherry picking of the data was worthy of a true Colts fan. Well done!

    Now, run along...

    Re: Mercury Morris Announces namechange

    And when the 2007 Pats are living in Morris' perfect neighborhood and see him on the corner, thay can greet him with . . . "What's up, Uranus?".

    Perfect, indeed!
