    Are the Patriots the Yankees?

    Are the Patriots the new Yankees of the NFL?

    They win a few championships in a short period of time, the right way. Built through the draft, discovered and promoted talent from within, great coaching, good defense, and a solid running game.

    Then they go out and start acquiring big free agents, not just in 2007 with Moss, Stallworth, Welker, and Thomas, but Seau
    in 06, and probably a few others I'm missing.

    Now they can't get to the Super Bowl, or they get there and they lose.

    This is just comparison though, I think the free agents they brought in are completely part of the team, unlike Yankee FAs who were never really accepted in the clubhouse.

    So are they the Yankees? Only time will tell, we'll see how their Super Bowl quest for the next few years go, and if they can't win it. They're the Yankees.

    Re: Are the Patriots the Yankees?

    I think we saw the best "Team" win last night. In fact I think we saw the best team beat the best bunch of "Stars" ever assembled into a team concept last night.

    So much for the idea of running out and buying a team (ala the Redskin way).
    Gonna be some serious issues next year on this team as they try to put something back together.
    Alot of these

    Re: Are the Patriots the Yankees?

    I just can't see the comparison because of the salary cap.
    I mainly hate teams like the Yankees because if they have an injury to a player they can just buy one of the best from another team.
    The salary cap was the best thing to happen to the NFL and made it so any team has a chance any year.

    You're aware that Troy Brown were inactive for the game. So he didn't show his age that much, beside being on the sideline

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    More to this point......

    Gonna be some serious issues next year on this team as they try to put something back together.
    Long story short, they won't be the same team next year.
    As with the Yanks and other teams who go out and break from the norm and buy a bunch of vets, this team was built to win this year.

    It will be interesting to watch them try to put this back together next year.

    I think their only serious problem will be with the LBs who is an entire group of old guys, and of course they have not the best DBs, but they got them somewhere this year.

    No, the Pats play football while the Yankees play Baseball.

    Re: Are the Patriots the Yankees?

    The Pats will NEVER win 4 championships in 5 years...heck, if things go like I want them to, the Pats might never win 4 championships total.
