    "Waste of a season", "a miserable failure", "Should we give up on the season?"

    this is like, ( I know, im showing my age), Dallas fans in the early 70's, when the team was 3-2 or 4-3 or fans there acted like they were the worst team in football.

    But at least those fans had reasons for their obnoxious negativity. The Cowboys in those days were an annual disappointment, they had never won the big one.

    The Patriots have been a dynasty, 3 Super Bowl Championships and 5 Conference Championships in 12 years.

    When Brady went down this looked like a lost season. And here they are at 3-2.

    What did you all expect????

    Between this and what i read from Sox fans im embarrased that Boston fans are living up to their national reputation.

    Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, Scott Pioli, Theo Epstein and Terry Francona owe us absolutely nothing and deserve a lot more respect, gratitude, and latitude than they given by the "everything sucks" mindset of Bostons spoiled rotten so-called fans.

    Go root for Cleveland if this "sucks" so bad.

    please explain.

    hey, living here in Kansas City area and watching the AWFUL Chiefs and Royals makes me appreciate even more what Boston sports fans have.

    its called having perspective and its too bad more people in New England dont have it.

    Re: We have become like Dallas fans.

    THANK YOU! This is what seperates and NE fan from a midwest fan. We love you when you're winning, we'll make you a god. Why? Because your job is to win games. When your not, you will be criticized, as you should be because your 10 X richer than me because you have a purpose to win. midwest fans are like zombies, they just don't care either way. Loser mentality.

    It'd be one thing if the papers were calling for Belichick's head. To say they're wrong for stating the obvious talking about Cassel's struggles or the defense is ridiculous, they're doing their job pointing out what's wrong with this team. I love my Pats through thick and thin, but to say this TEAM (OL, DL, etc.) has been terrible dissapointing this year is nothing but the truth. Anyone who expected Cassel to be a pro bowler is delusional, but I expected the team to carry him, exactly what they're NOT doing.

    If you think I'm like a Dallas fan because I have high expectations (as I should) kiss my ass. I love my team, I'd never root for another. But to say losing the superbowl in the same year than going 3-2 with a team that overall looks like crap is not a dissapointment, well I think you're the one lacking passion.

    Rant over, gym time.

    And this is exactly why, folks, everyone outside of Mass. HATES Boston sports fans.

    I thought the Yankee's fan analogy works just as well.

    Not me...

    It's obvious this team has what it takes to go all the way!

    Anyone who doesn't think this is a championship team doesn't know anything about football and is just a plain and simple bad fan.

    Given that all 4 major sports have created systems designed to create parity/mediocrity, your expectations are unfair to your team(s) of choice.

    #12 Jersey

    Yeah,anyone who doesn't think that a 25 point loss to the worst team in 2007 followed by a 20 point thrashing 2 weeks later is worth the point that this team is not a championship team knows nothing about football...yeah right :rolleyes:

    I know what it is,you think they are just playing thier worst football and its all in BBs secret plans because they have plans to fool everyone in december and suddenly become a juggernaut overnight by then :rolleyes:

    Man if this team is playing possum right now for what the team will look like in December which you think is a championship team then this team deserves an oscar for best acting because they sure have me fooled right now into thinking they are just mediocre :rolleyes:

    that is not what im saying.

    this is not a championship team. But on the other hand, why does that have to "suck"? Why is 3-2 without Brady such a huge disappointment?
    Why do guys like Bill Belichick and Terry Francona get ripped in Boston after all they've accomplished?

    I would be thrilled if this team went 10-6 and made the playoffs without Brady? How anyone could demand them to be anything better than 3-2 without Brady is totally unrealistic. They have an aging defense and Patriot Nation may have to come to the reality that this ride may be ending soon.

    But if it does, the sun will still rise in the east and set in the west.

    Get over it people. We arent entitled to championships year after year.

    Re: We have become like Dallas fans.

    What do you base your charge on that fans in the midwest are zombies who dont care either way? Have you lived there? I havent found that here. People here are miserable that the Chiefs and Royals stink. They are very passionate about their sports, ever been to arrowhead? Remember what Royals Stadium was like in the 70's and 80's? And fans in the midwest are passionate about college football and basketball, something "sophisticated Boston fans" are not. Fans of the NCAA Champion Kansas team are passionate, but when their team doesnt win it all, they dont start saying "they suck" like idiots. When you turn on sports radio, they can talk about all sports from all over the country very knowledgably, as opposed to Boston fans who talk about the same pitching change for 12 hours on WEEI or cannot and will not talk about anything but Red Sox and/or Patriots.

    Im from Boston, I love Boston, and Boston teams are my passion. Boston fans are highly overated. Or, more accurately, Boston fans overate themselves.

    They dont deserve what Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, John Henry, Theo Epstein and Terry Francona have given them.

    Cant wait for the Ainge/Rivers/Pierce/Garnett/Allen sucks talk to start. :confused:

    Who gets the #1 pick in the draft? Is there any money sharing arrangement which gives money to the poorer teams in order to (theoretically) make them more competitive?
