    That was my first reaction when I read this at Patriots Planet:

    http://www.patriotsplanet.com/BB/showthread.php?threadid=27570

    After I thought about it, my next reaction was DAAAAAMN, IS THAT WHAT OUR BELOVED PATRIOTS ARE DOING? :eek:

    I agree with the guy who posted this at that Eagles board. It is indeed a beautiful thing to watch. :rocker:

    You know, this is not an uncommon perception from true football fans around the country who are most definately not Patriot fans.

    While we are enjoying the hell out of this, and truly, its difficult to put into words, there are a lot of people who (again, NOT Patriot fans) are in amazement and deep down, dig this theme the Pats have taken on this season.

    I for one, welcome all bandwagon riders.

    Nice to see some dead-on stuff from other teams fans, after all the **** we've been hearing.
    That guy definitely gets it.

    So does one of my friends, who is a Broncos fan. He said the Patriots are playing the game the way it should be played and he has a lot of fun watching them.

    More than anything that we can say about our team, The above post gives me the greatest satisfaction of all. To hear it from your enemies.

    I hope I have the same class as those posters who put into words what I have had trouble doing this year.

    Great post Amazedbyitall07....

    Wow is right. They're 23.5 point favorites (against the Eagles) for a reason.

    I may have already said it on here, but when myself and my buddies get together every week, we have a few constants.

    I'll be wearing my Tedy Bruschi Jersey, comfortable sweatpants, and my Boston Red Sox hat.

    My buddy will be wearing his Moss jersey (Vikings jersey, from years ago).

    We'll drink beer and order food.

    And until this year, now, every game, we laugh. I can't get over this team. My mind can't grasp it. It's a perfect storm of talent, career (and possibly all-time) years by Brady and Moss, an absolutely outstanding offensive line, and a defense that would be getting ridiculous hype if it wasn't for the offense scoring touchdowns on 50% of their drives this year.

    We laugh during games. We laugh how little time it takes them to score.

    And I'm so glad I have Brady and Welker (and for a brief time, Sammy Morris) on my fantasy team.

    That might just be the best and most informative first post in the history of this board.

    Nice job and welcome.

    I frequent the forums at footballguys.com which has fans from all around the league. It's fashionable over there to hate on the Pats and amp up the whole cameragate angle, but several of the haters have turned and are rooting for the 19-0 season. Do you know what the biggest factor in their turn? Having to read post after post from fans of the latest Pats victim whining about the Pats "running up the score". It's getting old for everyone.

    I will say this, though. It appears that the biggest holdouts from making this turn are Steelers fans. A good lot of them absolutely hate the Pats and us fans.

    Regards,
    Chris

    This is the way all football fans (not to mention competitors and commentators) should feel about the Patriots if you truly are a fan of the game at it's best and not some knee jerk with a fan boy mentality who just wants his team or the team he picked to win even if they don't deserve to.

    Admire excellence rather than jealously sniping at it like it isn't something in your wildest dreams you would kill to be capable of or have your team or the team you touted be capable of. And then demand your team - from the FO to the waterboys as is the case here - aspire to it and refuse to except excuses for why they can't achieve it.

    and the real possibility is, if the second half of seasons in past years are any indication, that this team should keep getting better, barring any major injuries. awesome!

    Line from Megadeath song "Architecture of agression"

    "You know you sweat your worth when your enemies praise you Architecture of agression"


    Now that I think about it, the whole song sounds good when discribing the Patriots

    Born from the dark,
    In the black cloak of night.
    To envelop its prey below,
    Deliver to the light.
    To eliminate your enemy,
    Hit them in their sleep,
    And when all is won and lost,
    The spoils of wars are yours to keep.

    Let's not congratulate the Eagles' fans too much...later on in the same thread there are calls for Moss and brady to have their knees taken out, for BB to be targeted with an out-of-bounds ht, and even for Brady to be "Darryl Stingley-ed".

    Very classy and warm.

    Here's something from ExtremeSkins (in a sea of "Classless!!!!! Brady will get his knees taken out and I'll watch it again and again!" posts, that is):

    Personally, I admire just how dominant the Patriots are.

    It's amazing that in this day and age that a team could be put together that is this far ahead of literally everyone else in the NFL. They keep pounding you and pounding you until you literally give up and just don't want to play them anymore.

    Let's face facts, we'd all be singing a different tune regarding "running up the score" if it were the Redskins demonstrating that kind of superiority.

    You all had better just sit back and admire it because we are witnessing one of the greatest (if not the greatest) team in the history of the NFL.

    If the Patriots want it, there is no doubt they are going 19-0. None.

    Disable Jersey

    Go read the Bills vs. Patriots gamethread on Two Bills Drive if you want to see some real vitriol. Heck, it's not even just there, it's all throughout their threads.

    You're right!
    And i hadn't noticed how strange that is.
    Like you ... i LAUGH a lot
    at the implausibility ... the EASE ... of so much of it.

    Someone once wrote (about Joe DiMaggio),
    "The great ones do the impossible,
    and make it look easy!"
