Posted on 10/28/2007 3:53:21 PM PDT by KayEyeDoubleDee
They're beating a 4-2 Redskins team by a score of 45-0, with plenty of time left in the 4th quarter?
In game 8, of a 16 game season, Brady now has 31 touchdown passes for the season? Which puts him on pace to throw more than 60 touchdown passes in a single season?
Can the Colts beat this team?
If they stay healthy, are the 2007 Patriots the best team in the history of the NFL?
Not sure if I've ever seen anything quite like what Brady is racking up in the first half of this season.
They're making very solid NFC teams, like the Cowboys & the Redskins, look as though they were high school kids.
They have a weak schedule.
Because they don't have to play New England?
just kidding (I think)
Until a couple of weeks ago, I’d have bet that USC could maybe beat the Pats....now it looks like they’d get whomped by the Skins...
As I said, should be good.
Well ... the Pats are easily as good as the Jets are bad.
No. They have a "weekly" schedule. One at a time. So far they are not so weak. We will see next week when they play Indy.
Irrespective of their football prowress remember the illegitimate child bred by Tom Terrific and the cheating.
They may be good players but they are lousy humans.
Hey! That's for another thread. This is about football, not humans! LOL!
Guess we’ll find out next week how good Brady is (my personal opinion is what we’re watching in comparisons of Colts versus Patriots is Dungy ball versus Belichek ball...the tortoise and the hare...Dungy wins games slow and steady with time management, Belichek goes for the pizazz.) Brady’s numbers are better, outcome is the same, both teams are unbeaten.
Yeah, every time I look at him I think of that.
For a while there, it seemed like he was flirting with being a Republican.
Shame he decided to become a sc*mb*g instead.
Still, though, I've never seen anything quite like what he's put together in the first half of this season.
Maybe when Broadway Joe led the Jets past the Colts in SBIII, but I'm too young to remember that.
Immovable object meets irrestable force.
Can God make a team so good he can't beat it?
Got a feeling the Pats are gonna be favored. The Colts have won, but they've looked human, unlike the Pats.
Death by angle brackets: ...(Mumble) Arizona (I-forgots)...
IMHO, the Pats have looked better than the Colts in seasons past, but if memory serves me right, the Colts usually win. It will be fun to watch!
Well just wait till the play someone in the SEC. Oops...wrong thread. LOL!
I’ll predict a Colts win next week. Of course you don’t want to peak to soon. I’m sure there are some Charger fans out there who can understand that.
The answer is yes and no. As I stated before, the disparity in the talent this year is so great that New England is one level ahead of everybody else.
Washington has nothing to worry. Once the season is over, which will probably be in early January, they will cut Brunel. At some point in time, after McNabb is waived from the Eagles, Dan Snyder will over pay for McNabb, and the cycle will repeat itself.
I would not have drafted a QB from a run-dominated SEC team like Auburn. Campbell is a good QB, but he has yet to develop his instincts as a QB in the NFL.
Have you seen Bridget Moynahan? Tom Brady and Jeff Garcia are living the fantasy.
Who can blame TB for dating actresses and super models?

I think NE has a better chance going undefeated.
That's when NE goes down the only time this season....
If, and that is a very BIG if, they can get by Indy.
Now, as for a team leaving their starters in with a 45 point lead in the 4th qtr... Bellachickadee will have that come back to haunt him. You just do not do that in the NFL. That is done in college ball to impress the poll voters only. There are no polls in the NFL, there is only the poll of public opinion and it was not a good thing to witness today.
Can you tell I do not like the Patriots coach. Will yes I don't.
P.S. if in some way NE gets by Indy, my prediction is that the Bills beat them in Buffalo. Mark my words.
It’s funny. When I complained at New England running the score up against Dallas, I was accused of whining
Republicans don’t have illegitimate children?
I gotta wonder if Belicheat is going to get a bad case of Steve Spurrier karma at the rate he’s going. Going for it on fourth down at the 6 when you’re up 38-0? Oookaaayy. You gotta admit, that’s a very Spurrier-esque thing to do.
As a Skins fan, I’m glad I didn’t see the game. I’m not surprised the Pats won, but I did think the Skins could keep it close enough to cover (the line was 16 1/2 last I heard, which is absolutely insane, even at home, against a 4-2 team with a solid defense). The Pats are just in a completely different gear from everybody else right now. They remind me of the 1985 Bears—one side of the ball absolutely dominant, the other very good.
Get a life.
Oh yes. They are evil, wretched human beings. /s
As if it really matters in the question of who wins the game next week, or if you would really care about that if it were your team.
You need to get a life, because you probably don’t realize how stupid and sanctimonious your post sounds.
You can set up your own priorities.
Really...which is why you sift through professional football threads in the early hours of the morning to impart your sanctimonious opinions on unrelated issues?
I think they can. The Colts may not be as flashy, but I think they have a better defense than New England. I just hope the game lives up to the hype.
Which reminds me...
The Bustard's an exquisite fowl,
With minimal reason to growl,
He escapes what would be
By the grace of a fortunate vowel!
Obviously you're not concerned or you wouldn't be calling a kid who did nothing wrong a bastard.
You can set up your own petty moral priorities, but I'd be concerned going through life with the name of IDIOT.
Of course the child has done nothing wrong. But he's gpoing to be damned throughout his life by the action of his low-life parents.[And that includes Tom Terrific.]
He's only going to be damned by idiots and idiots don't count.
that's part of it. It also appears that they are causing teams to implode after having been destroyed on the playing field. Cleveland (a team with low expectations) did O.K., and Dallas managed to get it together against the Vikings (late in the game), but otherwise teams have fallen apart after playing them...plus there's the Fins.
San Diego is getting it back together, as are the Bills.
Your memory serves you wrong. The Colts are on a current three game winning streak, but in all three games came in with the better record. Previously, the Pats had beaten them 5 of 6, including both playoff matchups - where they made Manning and the Colts look silly. The Colts finally beat them when it mattered last year in a squeaker.
The patriots are bad for the game of football. Belecheck’s rubbing the NFL’s nose in catching him at his “spy-gate” seems to be something to giggle about.
If Buddy Ryan was still the coach of this week’s Patriots-”Iggles” game, there would be a bounty on Brady.
The best scenario I could think of is the surging Cleveland Browns make the wild card...and play the juggernaut Patriots in the first round of the playoffs.
With three interceptions turned into touchdowns, the game takes on the picture of the Jets - Baltimore Super Bowl.
Up by 14 points with 3 seconds to go...4th and 1 on the Pats 30, the Browns call time out. Brady Quinn comes in for his only play of the season, drops back and hits Braylon Edwards in the corner of the end zone on the game’s final play.
Pats QB Brady hangs his head as he stands on the sidelines with crutches from the broken leg he received on a fluke hit during a 4th and 10 pass play at the end of the Pittsburgh game where the Pats had a 35 point lead.
