Point Proven
The critics have blasted them all season, but Sunday night the Patriots defense proved that they really are better than people think.


Current Patriots Twitter Feed:

@ryjacques U watch stupid. they pay nfl because you watch. so stop watching. do us both a favor.

@rtmcnamara @ryjacques Then why you writing to me? I didn't write u.

@ricked82 Not that I've heard of. I doubt it.

👀👀👀👀 this was my show back in the day lol https://t.co/PRT0rWrFqm

@PeterIBreen it's weird because he knows football. Just a strange blind spot

@ricked82 By every statistical measure, any analytic, Ryan and Brady were 1-2 this season.

RT @MiamiHEAT: #HEATwin ! Your @MiamiHEAT defeat the Golden State Warriors 105-102 for their 4th consecutive victory! #HEATwin https://t.c…

RT @PlayersTribune: "Pats fans y’all are spoiled. Yeah, I said it. Spoiled. Winning will do that." https://t.co/PFxrazZJfH

@MarcusPapas he whiffed on at least back-to-back plays, but I haven't gotten there yet

Did you know that Mike was asked to coach? 92. ... 93. ... https://t.co/F4wsYrzaS0

Patriots knew exactly how Steelers would react, to the point that Edelman never stopped moving, started walking to new spot.

RT @SportsCenter: Tom Brady is on the cover for ESPN The Magazine's Super Bowl Preview Issue. https://t.co/u5NKMkgtbw

That was the Patriots toying with, out-coaching the Steelers. One team was playing chess, other checkers.

PIT had something cooking when out of I form, 11 went in motion (staple play). Then Brady audibled Jordan & NE went spread, 26y pass to 15

    Why do you hate the New England Patriots ?

    Good stuff here... Poor education system or toxic gene pool, barely interested inquiring minds are slighty interested to know :D

    Awesome comments about us, the Pats fanbase.

    Comment #1, on why the OP on the Bills forum hates the Patriots:
    I can assure you it has nothing to do with winning and losing football games

    I can assure that person that winning and losing has almost everything to do with it. The only exception to that rule is hating the Jets.



    Comment #7:
    Anytime I am at a bar watching Direct Ticket with all the games on at the same time the worst fans are always Patriots fans. Brady can be 31 for 32 with 9 touchdowns and they still complain about the pass he threw away because no one was open.

    I think he must have been sitting next to former brother-in-law ... or perhaps one of several posters on this forum. :D



    Comment #9:
    For me it does have to do with winning and losing. Thats why Miami isn't as big of a rival now as they were in the Marino days.
    Comment #11:
    because they own us. that's the only thing i care about. i hate them because they're better than us.
    Comment #17:
    Because we've only beat them twice since 2000.
    Comment #38:
    1. Because they are in our division
    2. Because they win
    3. Because we don't

    Ahh, now we're getting a bit of honesty amidst all the predictable responses...



    The only one that I would characterize as "sour grapes" though is the Bills fan who claims that "making the playoffs means nothing to me". I can categorically say that any fan of any team that has not made the playoffs in over a decade would be ecstatic over getting to the post-season even though they ultimately did not win it all.

    I can't hate them. They live in Buffalo.

    I passed through the area on my way to Canada last month and I'm still popping antidepressants.

    Yup. Our hate is insignificant compared to what God already has done to them.

    The first one was a running joke for a while in their media... for some reason they kept making Chuck Norris jokes using Tedy Bruschi's name. :confused:

    Maybe the Pats remind them of the Curse of Flutie.

    They started Rob Johnson and benched Doug Flutie in that playoff game, and the franchise hasn't been the same since.

    The picture of Kenbrell Thompkins and the Easter Island statue in the "lookalikes" thread was pretty great.

    I can't blame them for thinking we get all the calls. They probably don't watch out games enough to get proper perspective and "confirmation bias" goes a long way to making people think otherwise.

    I'm sick of the belly aching out of Buffalo. Buffalo ain't got nothing on Patriots fans. We've lost four Super Bowls, too. But that doesn't slow us down.

    And the small market thing is bogus. How in the world can the Green Bay Packers in a city with a population of 106,000 field a competitive team pretty much every year and pack their stadium while Buffalo NY with an urban population of 261,000 and metro-area of 1.1 million be such a stiff year after year after year?

    Somebody should step up and pry the Buffalo Bills from the cold dead hand of 94-year-old Ralph C. Wilson who is successor to Al Davis as the worst owner in the NFL.

    Ralph C. Wilson is an absentee landlord who lives in Michigan year round and takes his greatest joy from attending NFL owners' meetings in warm cities and counting the parking receipts from home games.

    They change GMs and head coaches in Buffalo like Al Roker changes underwear. The Bills have had seven different head coaches during Bill Belichick's tenure with the Patriots. They have not appeared in the playoffs since Bill Belichick resigned as HC of the NYJ.

    Let's face it, you didn't pass through here. It is a pretty nice city.

    I hate Buffalo fans.

    Who cares the Bills are beyond irrelevant. They get a new coach every three years and its always the same. High hopes until it comes crashing down by October. Wash, rinse repeat.

    I said I passed through the area. How else does one go to Toronto from i90?

    And no, Buffalo is not a nice city. I attended a wedding there in November and I can't think of a single nice thing from the experience (aside from the open bar).

    I-90 doesn't go through the city. I-90 passes north through Amherst and Tonawanda.

    I've lived in so many places in the USA. Boston, Providence, Ann Arbor, Washington, DC, New York, New Haven, Hartford, Philly, Baltimore, Rochester, Albany, Pittsburgh, and the only cities that beat Buffalo for beauty are Boston and New York. The city here, its great parks, its incredible houses, and turn of the century architecture, make for a very beautiful town. There are dozens of recent articles out there of people who have this experience.

    There are a lot of bad things to say about Buffalo. The poverty, the lack of ethnic food, the Bills, etc. But the beauty of the city, the great neighborhoods, the waterfront, these are pluses.

    The Gronkowski family is from the Buffalo region.

    They were considered of the "intellectual class".

    One recurring theme I saw was "running up the score". Not just with Bills fans but with fans and players of about half the teams the Pats play. Now, maybe the point of the game was changed when I wasn't looking, but last I knew the offense was supposed to score and the defense was supposed to prevent scoring. Why be mad at the Pats because your own inept defense can't do their jobs? Furthermore, what is more insulting: to run a play on 4th down or to essentially say "we know you can't beat us so we are going to stop trying"? This isn't little league. There's no mercy rule. The game has to be played for 60 minutes. So if you don't like the way the Patriots offense is playing, do something about it on the field rather than complaining in a press conference after the fact.

    I realize that. That's why I wrote "passed through the area" and not "passed through Buffalo".

    I have been to Buffalo on separate occasions.
