Because that was the atrocious NE defense we saw week 1 against KC, and they still went 13-3, 7th straight AFCCG and SB appearance. They aren’t going to win all of them. TB’s post was a “bring him down to reality” comment when BB is in a league of his own.

Fraudlin isn’t getting us back to the SB b2b, it’s time we all face it.



They also got handed three games this year on BS calls such as James' TD reversal. (by the same ref)
Not to mention all the times they got CAUGHT cheating. No way you can really think there wasn't or isn't more. No fucking way.
Fuck NE and fuck people for all of the nonstop ballwashing. I can't wait for the NE lovefest to fucking end already.

Didn't get to as many either.


The level of competition in the AFC was much greater then than now. Oakland, Miami, Denver all prevented the Steelers from getting to more. Not to mention Houston, Cincinnati and sometimes Cleveland all fielded postseason ready teams in those days.


That’s nostalgia-fueled nonsense.

New England - Inarguably the best team, coach, and QB of all time. A dynasty spanning 17 years.
Indianapolis - Peyton Manning, a top-3 all time QB.
Denver Broncos - aforementioned HOF QB and incredible defense.
Ravens - two-time SB champs, historically great defenses, division rival, always played the Steelers the hardest. Either the Ravens or Steelers generally won the division and the teams met several times in the playoffs.

Why is it dumb? I'll add this: belichick had the GOAT at QB and almost lost as many SBs as he's won. 5-3, and some very close calls in all of the wins.


Belichick's teams have been to eight Super Bowls and won five. Yes all were close games but so were all the Steelers' victories in their Super Bowls. Should we say they could have gone either way given a play or two as well?

Our man Tomlin has been to two and is 1-1. Hasn't been since Feb '11.

Pats SB runs

2001 - Tuck rule; return repunted punt for TD and blocked FG for TD
2003 - Chargers intercept pass to clinch victory, but knucklehead returns ball instead of falling to ground, Pats recover and win
2004 - Eagles 6 min drive with 7min left down two scores (a Tomlin/Ben staple btw)
2015 - Pete did what? interception at goal line
2017 - Falcons did what? Give up 25 pt 3rd quarter lead

You're full of shit as usual.

You call that AFC East the Patriots have as strong? A bunch of fuckin' weak sisters for sure.

The Colts were strong a decade ago certainly not since Peyton left.

Peyton was a shell of his former self in that Super Bowl year. The defense won that year.

While the Ravens had the Patriots number a few playoff games they weren't anything special.

You compare those teams with the ones Jack mentioned? Laughable. Like the majority of your posts.

I’m not really ball washing the Pats, I’m just saying this year they were gettable and we fucked up sk royally that we didn’t even have a chance at the rematch. Total failure.

Amen. Now, let's go out there and for ONE TIME be a player in free agency. Eagles and Pats both signed big name free agents and it worked out fine for them. There is no dishonor in signing a FA rather than building your entire team (or most of it) via the draft. Colbert needs to step up his FA game and get with the 2018 program.

Agreed. We need a big time FA pick up on defense.

2001 - Pats were up 17-3 in the fourth quarter. Ty Law pick sixed Warner for a 24-3 lead, but the idiot Willie McGinest got flagged for a defensive hold. Rams come back to tie, but the Pats made the plays to get into FG position.
2003 - That Chargers game happened in 2006.
2004 - How do you penalize the Patriots for Andy Reid's and Donovan McNabb's stupidity?
2015 - Malcolm Butler made the play. Pretty sure he was a Patriot.
2017 - Patriots made plays to come back.

Again, we can play this game with the Steelers Super Bowl victories as well.

1974 - Frank Lewis near fumble that wasn't called when the game was 9-6. Huge turning point. Lucky that ref saw that Lewis hit the ground first as there were no official reviews then.
1975 - Steelers went for it on 4th and nine leading to a near repeat of the miraculous Hail Mary pass in Minnesota.
1978 - Barnes called for interference? Really? And Jackie Smith drops that sure pass? Really?
1979 - Ferragamo's brainfart leading to the Lambert INT. If not for that, the Rams were rolling over the vaunted Steel Curtain defense.
2005 - Lots of questionable ref calls that could have gone either way. Hell Leavy even admitted it. Turns out this was the Super Bowl the Steelers won by the most points. Amazing that.
2008 - If not for that final last minute drive after the Steelers defense shit the bed against Warner to Fitz.

See how silly it is?

And in 2001, as Swiss will remind everyone, why did the Patriots get that re-punt?

Because BILL BELICHICK noticed from film study that Troy Edwards repeatedly ran out of bounds when going downfield on punts, and alerted the officials to watch for it.

THE OPPOSING COACH noticed...our own coach didn’t. We had STs problems all season long, and they were never fixed.

Minor nitpick...we won Super Bowl XIV by the most points (12), not Super Bowl XL (11 points).

The theme that the opposing coaches were stupid while the Pats coaches were smarter is a theme though.

John Fox chasing points in Super Bowl XXXVIII. Had he not done that, the Panthers are leading 31-28 when Casey’s kick goes OOB, so at worst, the game is headed to overtime.

Andy Reid and his horrendous clock management, assisted by a puking Donovan McNabb.

Pete Carroll eschewing the run against the worst short yardage defense in the NFL that year.

And Dan Quinn being STUPID AGGRESSIVE late in Super Bowl LI. Run three times...bleed Patriot timeouts...kick FG...go up by 11...win game. That’s all he needed to do there.

Even Doug Pederson...as smart as he was the whole game...made a critical error that luckily was negated by Bill Belichick making a dumber one on the ensuing kickoff.

Pederson had an opportunity to make sure the Patriots never got the ball again and secure a 38-33 victory.

2:03 left- 2nd down and 5. Pederson should have called a safe pass play to try and get the first.

He gets the first...game over. Three knees and run out the clock. Win.

He doesn’t get the first...the Eagles are in the same position as they are if they run the ball on second down.
