    With the win yesterday, it locks in the 11th straight winning season for the Patriots.:rocker:

    Maybe this is not a big deal for younger fans, but it is a very big deal for those, like me, who have been fans since 1970 or before.

    I know that the Cowboys and 49ers had long streaks of winning seasons. I think the Steelers under both Cower and Noll had a couple of losing seasons mixed in with their great records.

    11 straight winning seasons must put the Patriots in the top 5 of all time in this category. I can't look up right now so if anyone has a list of teams with the longest winning season streaks, I'd appreciate your posting it.

    Us old school dudes remember when..

    Was thinking this morning about in the 70's and 80's used to get the JC Penney and Sears Christmas catalog, and would always look for Patriots stuff.. but in those days the Cowboys, Giants and a few others were kings of merchandising..

    Then came the 85 season, and I got my first Pats T-Shirt.. "Squish the fish".. but in reality no one really cares about that stuff..

    for comparisons we had 11 winning season in the span from 1979 - 2000.

    and took from 1960 to 1986 to get our first 11 winning season.

    Many folks here actually believe this means nothing without translating to playoff wins and championships. But a winning season sure makes MY September-December a lot warmer and brighter.

    Imagine life as a fan for many teams that are DOA come November. Or, like the lamentable New Jersey Green Beans, haven't even HAD a home playoff game in NINE YEARS! We really should count our blessings.

    I was mentioning this to my 7 year old yesterday. Appreciate winning, even in the regular season, because I saw far too many seasons when the Pats didn't do much of that.

    It should make the fan experience much warmer and brighter, but that's backfired here over the last 3-4 seasons...

    Life as a fan here often feels like we might as well be DOA come November because since 2007 a vocal minority that posts here incessantly doesn't know how to count blessings, only knows how to nitpick or dwell on imperfections either in fear or dissatisfaction or thorough disgust...

    I remember those days too:) I remember saying to my mom they don't have any Patriots stuff and my brothers saying it was cause they suck(pecker heads would say stuff like that just to make me cry) But let me tell you who got the first phone call when the Pats won their first Super Bowl :)

    Other current streaks (if this season's records hold):

    Steelers 5 seasons
    Ravens 4
    Green Bay 3
    Jets 4
    Saints 3
    Indy - Streak will end this year. Was 9.
    Chargers 2 year streak will also end.

    Why are we so angry all the time again?

    I think 1990-1992 were the bottom of the barrel

    I hope it's a long time until this team is in that comparison

    Amen. It's great just to be in the conversation EVERY year. I can't imagine being a Browns fan and the season being over by week 6 every year.

    It's good to see those streaks but it would also be nice to see some fresh faces in those categories......Looks like Oakland and Houston may be building something in thier teams in the near future.

    Some fans have never been close to a Championship and I've been to three Championship parades in ten years. Some just don't know what it feels like to watch your team be in the "STUPOR Bowl" yup I remember a game being called that back in the day.

    I'l take this over the past any day. Wasn't there a Pats-Colts "Toilet Bowl" in the 80s or maybe early 90s?

    While I'm not dewy eyed over the potential problems we'll have in January, I mostly ignore worries like playoff D and such until that time arrives. Why spoil the present? Posters here are SO afflicted with future dread. Just look at awful threads like kvetching about can we sign Gronk a few years down the road. Enjoy today's winning season.

    Houston, sure, but aren't the Raiders referenced in wikipedia as a reference for the phrase "mortgaging the future"?

    Exactly! It seems part of our fan base looks for the cloud instead of the silver lining.

    Yes, this current team has problems but they are 9-3 as of today. I'm not going to spoil the enjoyment of the season thinking about what might happend in January.

    New England Patriots History

    From what I can see the longest streak of of winning season that we had before this streak was 5.

    Once you get a taste for championships winning seasons are morning coffee compared to the lunch banquet.

    Personally, I just like watching Tom Brady play and seeing what the rest of the team is capable of.

    what th OP meant to say is that the pats have 11 straight seasons with a winning record.

    5 of the last 6 seasons have ended with a loss and the one that ended with a win, the pats were out of the playoffs

    kudos for this sound very colt-like

    Based on that logic your Jets have had 41 straight losing seasons.

    Congratulations on your streak!

    Being a fan in 1990 sure gives you perspective.

    A lot of the younger posters take our records for granted. After this season, we'll have lost a combined 5 games in the last two years which to me is pretty amazing.

    I'm just shaking my head at our enormous good fortune in the last decade, and this one as well.

    We snagged a franchise quarterback in Mallet so I'm going to wager that this decade will be a winning one as well.

    Referencing the links and thanks.
    Back in the misremembered dark ages, 76-89, Pats had 1 losing season in 13.

    Pats have best % of winning seasons of original 8 AFL teams, Jets worst.

    They've come a long way since Clive Rush, Mike Taliaferro, and Joe(or should I say Rocky) Kapp.

    I think he's a Green Beans fan. His posts are subversively negative.

    :rocker::D:rocker::singing::singing::singing:

    I hadn't even noticed, your always in the news, on top, or being talked about as the biggest threat. I guess I just took it for granted that your team is always amazingly efficient, even when not winning Super Bowls, lol.
    Shesh, Kraft, your coaches, and boys have really done an outstanding job threw the years.
    So, congrats and may you have 11 more years of good fortune.

    Regardless of our some of our newer fans who don't seem to appreciate anything, really, 11 winning seasons is more than the regular season IMO.

    Look at Dallas and San Fran. How many championships did they win by competing every year?

    What team sthat rolled all the dice for one "window" season succeeded?

    Be ready and winning every year for the playoffs and you have a fighting chance. Simple as that. some years, you have great talent, some years you surprise like 2001.

    We're in it every year, even without Brady, a year where our record usually gets us in. Fantastic accomplishment.

    Ours goes to 11 /Nigel Tufnel.

    Man, I forgot how awful the late 60s/70s were. Early sixties was a fun team.

    Clive was a happening, though. But Mike Taliaferro. Man what futility and mediocrity, and for a while too.

    Yeah Clive was electrifying.. literally electrifying, as in touching an ungrounded microphone at an intro conference and getting zapped pretty good.
