    I posted this before:

    Team of...

    1970s: Steelers
    1980s: 49ers
    1990s: Cowboys
    2000s: Pats
    2010s: Pats

    That's nuts, especially considering its the same coach and QB both decades.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Exactly. Sustained excellence is one thing. Sustained alpha status across 2 decades is another. Granted, it helps that the run started in 2001 which aligns nicely for team-of-decade crowns, but it's truly amazing what we've witnessed.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Looks like the pats only need 10 wins in the next 26 games to hold the record for most regular season wins in a decade, held today by the colts at 115. They have 106 currently.

    As fans, because we are so close to the day-to-day maturations of bad draft picks, big wins, tough losses, mistakes, league-driven agendas and media drama, we sometimes overlook the sheer volume and longevity of this franchise's success.

    I contend the length and dominance of their success is only superseded by the late 20s to early 60's Yankees, late 50s to 60s Celtics and 50's - 70's Canadians.

    Placing the current Patriots with those three teams/franchises is an incredible achievement. It won't truly be appreciated in full by either Boston area or national fans and media for many years, after this run has long ended.

    In my opinion - admittedly not completely objective - the success of the Patriots in the 2000s and 2010s is actually a more impressive achievement than that of those three great teams.

    The reason I say that is because the Patriots are the only one to accomplish so much long term success while playing in an era of the double edged sword of free agency and the salary cap. Also factor in a sport with the shortest average career, with replenishment of quality players hampered by the annual draft based on inverse order of the previous season's record.

    In addition injuries - which are more plentiful in both severity as well as quantity in football - play a larger role in the outcome of NFL games than in other sports.

    Consider all those components. A team is absolutely not supposed to be able to have sustained success in today's National Football League. With four-team divisions, teams and owners were supposed to never have long droughts of missing the playoffs - with the caveat that their team would also only have a few years of success when they were king of the hill.

    Unless we see dramatic rule changes, I don't believe we will ever see this kind of sustained success in either the NFL or even in any of the four major US team sports ever again.

    This record will never be broken unless the cap gets abolished, even then it would be a long shot to be topped.

    When the league goes to 18 game regular season and 2 preseason games, then almost all the records will be shattered, except Tom brady’s wining percentage.

    If you utilize the formal definition of "decade" based on the Gregorian calendar with a 1st decade of 1AD to 10AD and the 200th decade spanning 2001-2010....NE is 2 games shy.

    If you deploy the pop culture definition of decade.... "years that share the same "tens" digit"....NE set the record

    And if you define decade as any 10 year period, NE gets credit for wins in 1999 as well.

    Andy....you never seemed like a pop culture guy :)

    Yes, many championships and wins and such : but shouldn’t we be angry about Gronk’s back ? Or even « we defeated an unbeaten KC team many were saying was unstoppable » but did we like the WAY they did it ? I just feel this thread is too uplifting, like we should be grateful or something....
