Undefeated!

So we all got to witness history last night.. The New England Patirots have gone 16-0 in the regular season . YIPPIE!  I’m sure I should be more enthusiastic about the history I saw last night.. sorry..if you want a touchy feely story about how great the Patriots are.. You should go read elsewhere.. If your a true Patriots fan, and not just someone that jumped on the band wagon when they started winning Superbowls… or even about halfway thru this season.. then I’m sure your hungover somewhere form the celebration. Watching this Patriots team over this season has done nothing other then prove the punishment handed down by Roger Goodell for the whole *spygate* scandal was a JOKE!  It means nothing for a team that is stacked at every position to loose a draft pick, and a fine.. no matter how big.. means nothing these days!  So congrats to the Patriots.. Here is your real story from last night..

Eli Manning! That is your story from last night.. Eli looked damn good, and must have read our debate a few days ago.. WOW! Eli made all the throws he was supposed to, and managed the game very well.. I won’t say that I am 100% sold on Eli yet.. but I will say this.. If he played like that consistently.. because thats the key word with Eli.. I would worry every single time the Cowboys played the Giants!

Congrats to the Patriots for their undefeated season.. I send major kudos to the New York Giants.. they played at a 110% level in a meaningless game!

Now the real fun begins.. The Playoffs.. 16-0 will mean nothing if the Patriots don’t win the Superbowl!

*EDIT* Had to link this one.. This is All Talk Sports take on the Patriots 16-0 season.. Great video clip!

    The numbers are in and the preliminary ratings indicate the 29 December 2007 game between the Patriots and Giants was the most watched broadcast in U.S. television history.

    Up to this point, the most watched program in U.S. television history was the M*A*S*H series finale: “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” which aired in 50.15 million households on 28 February, 1983 with a 77% share of the entire viewing audience. The M*A*S*H broadcast had 105.9 million total viewers. Since 2000, the most watched program was Super Bowl XLI Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears), which had 93.1 million million viewers on 4 February, 2007 .

    Overnight ratings of the Patriots-Giants game show 53.2 million households watched the game. In addition, Nielsen Media Research is reporting overnight viewers totaled more than 107.3 million on the three networks broadcasting the game (NFL Network, NBC, CBS) and an 83% share of the total television viewing audience.

    After weeks of insisting they wouldn’t cave in, NFL officials did just that Wednesday. As a result, all of America saw the Patriots’ make history. Saturday night’s game between New England and the New York Giants on the NFL Network, was also simulcast nationwide on CBS and NBC. It was the first time in NFL history the same game was broadcast on three separate networks at the same time.

  2. I’m a life-long Patriots fan. I grew up 20 minutes south of Foxborough. I froze my teenage/early adult butt off in the real Foxborough Stadium. Most of my hats have the crouching patiot logo. Like the Sox, Celtics, and Bruins, there has never been or will be any another team. I’m 48 years old. I’ve laughed, cried and just about everything else in between watching New England sports during those years.
    I enjoy listening to all sides of the debate about the 2007 New England Patriots’ place in NFL history. The one thing I totally disagree with are the statements that the 16-0 means nothing if they dion’t go all the way. It’s been 35 years since a team finished the regular season undefeated. For certain you can’t use “Best Team in NFL History” until they win the Super Bowl. Then, just accept it and move on. But come on, they’ve already played the best regular season EVER. Yeah in a soft division, I know, blah, blah, blah. I know I’m getting old but if my memory serves me it wasn’t the strongest division 35 years ago either. People seem to want to forget that, as of this post, this team beat all the 1st place teams in the AFC, they beat the only 2 teams with a 13-2 record AWAY (actually beat up one of them, which, oh by the way, happens to be the best team in the NFC) and beat the only other teams both those teams lost to. This is a great TEAM. I sincerely doubt that in the age of “The Cap” that my 6 year old son will ever see this happen again. It’s NFL history, the Patriots stand ALONE – it does mean something.

  3. To further expound on your punishment comment. Yes they lost their own draft pick, but many people forget they own the 49ers pick as well…a top 5 pick I believe. Now if the NFL really wanted to punish them, they would strip that pick as well. So they lost a pick in the early thirties…big deal. Still all in all I stand by my comment that Indy can beat them…congrats Pats

  4. Yeah, Sean…the pick looks like it might be #8 based on the way the season is finishing up. Not really punishing the Pats if you don’t take that one away from them as well…I agree that the Colts can beat them and I’m even gonna say the Jaguars have a shot as well. JSasksA? – no doubt in my mind 16-0 means the world regardless of what happens in the post-season. All this crap in sports about regular-season accomplishments meaning nothing unless you win it all is a joke. They ran the table and ran it like no one else even belonged on the field with them most weeks. I hate Belichick with a passion but have nothing but admiration for the job he and the team executed this season. Congrats to the Patriots and here’s to all of us who will enjoy rooting for their demise in the post-season as well!

  5. History yes.. but no one can deny the fact that if the Patriots dont win the superbowl the media and fans will eat them alive.. they have a huge pressure put on them to win it all now, after going 16-0.. More so then if they had lost one or two along the way.. Sure every fan that supports a team either expects, or wants their team to win every season, being hockey, baseball, football, or basketball.. You as a fan especially expect it if your team does really well in the regular season.. Look at the Mavs.. 2 years ago they were in the finals, were up 2-0 and then lost 4 in a row.. the next year they win 62 games in the regular season, and looked damn near unstoppable.. and then get bounced in the first round of the playoffs!

    This Patriots team will go down as the best team in NFL history.. I agree with that, Brady has done an amazing job during his career… I think my biggest problem is the coach, but hey thats just me.. Honestly.. Im a die hard Cowboys fan, but I fully expect the Patriots to win the Superbowl, The Celtics to win the NBA Championship, to go along with the Red Soxs World Series.. 🙂

    Thanks for the comments guys.. keep them coming.. this is the great thing about sports.. there is always something to debate.. and always various opinions!

  6. 4th one for pats man…4th one….i love my boys i really do and i hope we do put up a good fight but 4th one for the pats man 4th one.
