    NFLN aired this last night. Don't know if they've aired it before, but either way they'll probably air it 20 more times. (PS, if this thread is a repeat, mea culpa, please merge. I looked through the first page of threads and didn't see it.)

    The Pats figured into about every other "thing we loved," especially:

    - segment on the Manning/Brady QB rivalry
    - segment about the Patriots' dynasty
    - segment about close super bowls
    - segment about records falling (Moss and Brady TD records,) although this one was somewhat tempered. Much of the spin was, with that many records being broken, it's probably the rules changes doing it.

    It made me think about just how special this decade's been for us Pats fans. There's never been a dynasty that just plain kept going (SF came close), so may we be the first. May I never look back at the 2000s and think "well that was a special time to be a Pats fan, it'll never come back in my lifetime." Chances are, however, that's exactly what I'll think.

    Thanks to the Pats for the 2000s. Whatever comes next I'll remember it through the good and the bad the rest of my life.

    Sounds pathetic to care that "dramatically" about a team, but I guess that's what being a fan means.

    Perfectly put. Couldn't agree more. Thanks for letting us know.

    Did they have the Joey Porter/Cleveland Browns fistfight from a few years ago?

    I was pleasantly surprised that they didn't harp on spygate during the Patriots Dynasty portion of the show.

    Nah. Very positive for the most part. Had a segment on the deva receivas... TO, Chad OchoJohnsono, Steve Smith... I think that was the closest thing to "negative" there was.

    Yeah in terms of the spygate stuff, they kept it to one guy saying the Pats always won by having the best information.... "sometimes too much information", or something like that. But that was it for the whole show.
