    Re: Mercury Morris on the Patriots: If They Win, They're the Second-Best Team Ever

    Mercuray Morris.
    Loved him when he played football. Now, he makes an ass of himself everytime he opens his mouth.
    You would think the time he spent in prison for drugs would have humbled him but I guess not.

    How do you feel about Al Harris and his band of Bounty Hunting lynchmen?
    Honestly, that was blown out of context by the media.. they weren't bounties.. Could they hold the Opposition under a certain number of yards per game. Not trying to take a player out or stop a single player.. NFL took a long look at it and let it go.

    It amounted to nothing more that a QB or RB buying the Olineman a watch at the end of the season because they hit a certain production level.. and that is without the Green and Gold glasses attached to my head.

    Much to do about nothing..
    I hear ya, pack, but this guy had more hits in that game than Al Harris.

    LOL... I heard Al called All State right after the game, he wanted a couple of good hands people to help with his lack of coverage Sunday night.

    It's not even close man. The Pats have beaten all of the best teams in the league. Even if they lose the Super Bowl they're still better than that Dolphin team. They've already won more games against much better competition.

    Re: Mercury Morris on the Patriots: If They Win, They're the Second-Best Team Ever

    When i was out last night Gamenight on ESPN Radio had this joker on and he still said the Patriots aren't quite on his block yet, they are circling it, but not quite there, not quite to the driveway, and not parked yet.
    Enough with the freaking car, driveway references, it's annoying, and you sir are a jackass.

    I guess there is nothing wrong with that ... but it is not really a toss up. The Patriots have A LOT more things on for the side if there really is a debate. They are the best offense of all-time ... with the best PPG total and the top single-season QB TD and WR TD totals. They will have won two more games. They play in an era where parity is the name of the game.
    The Dolphins were the No. 1 offense and No. 1 defense that season ... which is VERY impressive ... and they did go to three-straight Super Bowls (winning two) ... so they can argue to a point, but nothing about them is close to as dominant as this Patriots team.
    The most telling statistics. 72' Dolphins opponents: 105-136-4 (.429), they topped three teams total that were in the playoffs, and NONE of the teams on their regular-season schedule made the playoffs. Their average game finished with the Dolphins winning 25.9-12.3 (13.6 points)
    IF THE PATRIOTS WIN: 07' Pats opponents: 163-161 (.503), the would have topped NINE teams total that were in the playoffs and their regular season schedule included matchups with SIX playoff teams. The average game finished with a score of Pats winning 35.6-17 (18.6) points.
    By almost all accounts, the Patriots are a better team.

    Great post Mid.
    The 72 Dolphins were a gfreat team.
    There's no doubt about it.
    Really the only thing you have to compare here are the stats that mid provided.
    They will never play each other so we can't go by head to head.
    The bottom lin here is Morris is a jackass when he opens his mouth.
    This Pats team is a better team regardless of how you look at it.
    I'm not degrading his 72 Dolphins in any sense of the matter.
    It's just that this Pats team scored more points and had a much more potent offense.
    The 72 Dolphins I think had a better defense when you look at points scored against.
    Then again, the offenses these days are geared more towards passing and scoring more points than that of the 70 NFL teams.
    Sorry Morris.
    Time to shut up regardless of what happens in the superbowl.
    If the Pats lose they can still say they finished it but as far as better and in the same class, Pats win in that area.

    Thanks for the kudos ... but I am going to disagree with you a little. If the Patriots lose then I have little choice but to place them as the 77th best team of all time. Since the NFL started playing Championship Games in 1933 ... 76 other teams GOT THE JOB DONE ... does that mean I think the Pats would lost to all 76 of them ... probably not, but the point of the season is not to go 18-1 ... the point of every season is to win a World Title ... and I can't place you near the top of my list if you fail to do so.
