Kraft: ‘Tommy’ The Greatest Of All Time
CBS BOSTON ^ | 15 JANUARY 2014 | CBS BOSTON

Posted on 01/15/2014 6:49:53 PM PST by Extremely Extreme Extremist

BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is reflecting on his 20 years at the helm and looking forward to Sunday’s AFC Championship.

WBZ-TV’s Lisa Hughes sat down with Mr. Kraft on Wednesday.

A season ticket holder, he said buying the team was a dream come true. Since then, Kraft has brought three championships to New England.

But after this season’s rocky start, can they bring home a fourth Super Bowl title?

“There’s something pretty special down there in this locker room,” Kraft said. “It’s not really how you start your season, it’s how you finish.”

Brady's certainly *one* of the best.Deciding who is *the* best is a pretty subjective proposition.

I root for anyone playing the Patriots. I remember telling my wife how amazing the Pats defense was against the Rams in the 2001 Super Bowl..."It's like they know exactly what play the Rams are going to run". Come to find out they did know.

Got no love of cheaters.

Kraft is an Obama contributor, so another reason to not like.

As a Rams fan, I couldn’t agree more. Also the outright mugging of Holt and Bruce that never was called once had a lot to do with that outcome. And, for the record, that puny slap on the wrist they got didn’t stop the practice. They still do it, just better at not getting caught. Pay the video guy more so he won’t sell you out!

Pats were, and are, as far as I’m concerned....cheaters.

The Refs also refuse to call penalties on the Pats in important games, it happens every single game.

It is of note that the New England Cheaters have not won a Super Bowl since they were caught cheating! LOL

I love whiny morons, the thing is that this will be the 4th conference championship the Patriots have been to since spygate.

Also their winning % since spygate is higher than it was prior to spygate.

Losers always whine.

Then there is Jimmy Johnson saying he did the same thing and that everyone in the NFL tries to steal signals. Bill Cowher came out today and said the same thing.

http://espn.go.com/blog/pittsburgh-steelers/post/_/id/4294/cowher-dismisses-impact-of-spygate?

But for losers excuses are the way to go.

Now as to Brady as the GOAT, there case can be made currently when you look at his complete body of work, he has won more playoff games than ANY QB in NFL history his record is 18-7 as opposed to Montana’s 16-7,

Brady has led his team to 8 conference championships, not other QB has accomplished this.

His winning % as a QB is 77.4%, Montana is 71.3% and Manning is 69.8%. This is for QB’s with over 100 wins. Staubach had 85 wins and a 74.5%

J Elway has the same number of wins 148 as Brady but almost twice as many losses (82 vs 43), Montana had 117 wins but 4 more losses than Brady currently although Brady has 31 more wins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NFL_starting_quarterback_playoff_records

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Most_wins_by_a_starting_quarterback_(NFL)

When Brady wins his net SB (probably not this year, very possibly net year, Pats have 2nd youngest team in the NFL)he will be the best QB to have played in the NFL hands down.

I have seen them all from Unitas & Starr.

I just watched that drive on Youtube. SFO had six turnovers in that game and Montana had 3 ints. Not that anybody remembers that part.

-— Got no love of cheaters. -—

Or excuse makers.

Every team was doing what the Pats did. Then the commissioner sent out a letter warning the teams to stop using video equipment. Belichick continued for a few more months before they were caught. It was the end of the world as we know it.

But since then, the Pats have lost continuously. No wait, they continue to win, year after year.

Teams still continue to try to steal signals, using lip-readers, etc.

Pats, with all the injuries and with no one but rookies for Brady to throw to, completely changed their offense this year and still are one win away from the Super Bowl. Win or lose, Bilichek is the coach of the year.
