To be clear, I did not take offense. It's not like you insulted my family.
To say they were the worst SB champ is emphatically wrong. Look at the roster again. Player by player again and the careers they've had.
The debate is about talent.
2001 was a freaking talented team. History has proven it.
I'll go on record and state the 01 team would beat 1/2 of the SB champs.
Ok I will prompt you, I'd like to hear 01 Pats vs 06 Colts
I don't think the 06 team was that great. Manning played like crap that postseason. Pats 01 pass D was incredible.
01 had better receivers as well in a prime Brown and Patten. Smith was better than LoMo and sluggish Dillon
01 wins 20-16
I read this often in opposing team fan forums. They don't get it. It's not about individual talent. It's about how the 11 players on the field function as a single unit. And as a unit they were extremely talented. That's all that really matters.
Really? So now we are saying that Troy Brown and David Patten are better than Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne (two guys that will get Hall of Fame consideration)?
I bet Keyshawn Johnson is still cursing the Patriots for that. I remember him lamenting the fact that kids growing up who dreamed of hearing their name announced at a Super Bowl no longer were able to experience that. Did they stop announcing individual player names the next season in the Super Bowl?
Sorry. Better than Reche and Gaffney.
I can't say for sure about SB 37 but I know for a fact that in SB 38 both teams were introduced as a team.
It's tough judging teams from different eras but if they're allowed to play 01 rules I think the Patriots handle them fine, 24-10. If it's 06 ticky tack bs, close one score game that could go either way but definitely winnable for that 01 team. JMO
I agree but offensively they weren't the juggernaut they eventually become. They had clutch players on offense led by Mr clutch himself.
The 03 offense was worse.
I remember someone (and I cannot remember who) saying a bunch of players on the ‘01 team would not have made the roster on the ‘04 team - the upgrade in talent was that large.
In retrospect, I’m shocked they let them do it. Funny to think of the Rams, they probably felt stupid they didn’t do it.
Did they let them? I thought the Pats said that was how it was going to be.
The 2001 team is by far my favorite team of any sport. I've seen the the Super Bowl season dvd far more then any other dvd, vhs or bluray by a long ways. On line I found the dvd's of all that years wins except for the Bills games. I really don't care what other people think of that teams talent to me they were an amazing and special team.
04 is in GoAT discussion .
I thought they forced the issue as they had already done it a few times during the season.
