The New England Patriots, no matter how much everyone may love to hate them, obviously don’t care what people think. After a 38-35 drubbing of the Giants, the question is brought up, are they the greatest of all time? As I presently get some help from the NFL Sunday Fox Crew, my answer is yes, IF they can win the big one. And how can anyone argue? They’ve had to overcome a more balanced league then the 1972 Dolphins, and have not just beat teams, but blown them out. A season that continues to be overshadowed by spy scandals, many continue to question, me included, how valid have the Patroits’ accomplishments been the past decade? But after personally witnessing this team play, it just awes me. Tom Brady carves teams up as if they were high-schoolers, and when he tries, Randy Moss is easily the most talented player in the league. What added to the mystique was Brady and Moss hooked up for two more TD connections, placing Moss on top of legendary Jerry Rice as the NFL single season touchdown record holder. Consequently, that same pass was Tom Brady’s 50th, launching him ahead of Peyton’s unprecedented 04′ campaign. I still question if anyone can challenge them, and even as a die-hard Packer fan, all I can say is good luck.
