    From the Tuck Rule, Adam Vinatieri, Malcolm Bulter's INT, to the Falcons blowing a 25 point lead, all of their SB victories were solely based on luck & opportunities IMO.

    Even though Brady is a talented QB, all of their SB victories could've gone either way, just like the regular season/playoffs as well. Matt Cassel lead them to a 11-5 record, yet they still missed the playoffs. And on any given week, the Patriots either win or lose, depending on what happens during the game.

    Finally, the bottom line is that they don't make costly mistakes as often as other teams. They also have discipline, except for AB, & even though they cheat/are favored by the refs here & there, who else is surprised that they never had an "off year", yet? Even the best of teams have an off year or two.

    That's something I always wondered. It seems by general rules of probability that what they've been doing seems impossible. Most dynasties last around maybe 7 years in most sports. Idk sometimes I still think something doesn't smell right here.

    Have you gone back and watched the Steelers 6 SB wins? Other than the complete domination over the Vikings in the 1st one (with little offense of their own point-wise), every one of those SB's were filled with twists and turns that easily could have gone either way. And while so many despise him at this point, but for #92's Immaculate Interception TD, Steelers lose that game to the Cards. It cuts both ways. Sometimes it helps to be lucky rather than just good. Wouldn't want to be a Bills or a Vikings fan. Lots of SBs between them without a single W.

    exactly.

    There is no such thing as luck though, it's just a probability statistic. Patriots are like flipping a coin that keeps landing on heads and you thinking tails should definitely come up the next time, and it doesn't.

    Belicheat is in a league of his own compared to ALL the other HCs the last decade. Doesn't hurt to have Marsha either.
    That's the problem for the entire league.

    BB is obviously the kind of guy who takes something from every game win or lose and saves it for next time. He probably has a file on every team with tendencies, strengths, weaknesses, best players. He has it down pat if they do this we do this. Tomlin and Co don't know what to do when they do this.

    It just seems like most other coaches in the league don't try that hard or are overwhelmed with the position.

    They've had a gosh dang horseshoe up their ass.

    How do you not run Beastmode from the 1
    Falcons just had to run 3 times up the middle and kick a FG
    The Tuck rule, started the whole run
    Dee Ford jumping off sides last year

    They did end up on the wrong side of lady luck once, the Tyree helmet catch. I'd take that trade off though, remove 3 of their SB's an give them 1 back :hehehe:

    Love em or Hate em They seem to get everyone drinking the same Kool-Aid!!!!! and if you don't your outta there!!!! that's what you need to collect those chrome plate Footballs on a pedestal!!! I'm a fan of the game and always have been I love good Football match ups where both teams are going at it and its decided by a field goal. They have this motto that says "The Patriots Way" and that simply states that if your not buying into the whole teammate concept get your arse out of town!!!! It was in full view Sunday night Tomlin in his usual stance: arms folded make numerous facial expression like he was constipated, where as Belicheat was taking notes, view photos and communicating with his team even though he was up by 3 scores 60 minutes. Folks get mad because they beat up on helpless teams they just play to their game plan that's all until the whistle blows. I hate the PATS because their that mosquito on our butts year after year and now their tied with the Steelers with Lombardi's!!!! The Steelers organization needs to get, that fire in their belly again and get back to a win,win organization and get that 7th Lombardi!!! Go Steelers

    I will never fully respect them as a great dynasty no matter if they get to 10 super bowls... Same with calling Brady the GOAT, I don't consider him because this team was caught cheating red handed. Call it sour grapes or whatever you want
