Mercury Morris likes the 2011 Packers better than the 2007 Patriots

When the 2007 Patriots came within a hair’s breadth of joining the 1972 Dolphins as the only perfect teams in NFL history, former Dolphins running back Mercury Morris made no secret that he was rooting against New England.

But now that the 2011 Packers are 9-0, Morris says he’d be happy to see them win 10 more games, culminating in the Super Bowl.

I have nothing but good things to say about the Packers. If they [end up] in our neighborhood, they’re a credit to the sport. They don’t have a bunch of guys out there who view themselves as entertainers,” Morris told FoxSportsFlorida.com. “I didn’t like the way [the Patriots] came across. . . . They were too much in your face. They wanted you to bow down to them and kiss the king’s ring.”

The 1972 Dolphins have been described as insufferable because of the way they constantly remind everybody that they’re the only perfect team in history, but former Dolphins coach Don Shula has said he and his old players don’t really drink champagne when the final undefeated team loses each season, and Morris says he likes this year’s Packers just fine.

Still, if the Packers do win 10 more games, Morris doesn’t want anyone to claim that makes them a better team than his 17-0 Dolphins.

“I don’t want to hear from the pundits that they’re going to pass us,” Morris said. “We were the first team to do it. They’d be the second team. They won’t be better than us just because they won 19 games.”

    Finally, I can exhale now. I was wondering when Morris would open his yapper.

    Hey Mercury, last I checked 19 is passed 17

    Oh come now, you’re telling me one of Chris Berman’s most predictable groaners every year is based on an urban legend? Nothing is right in my world anymore.

    Go away, Mercury. No one cares about you.

  8. rushmatic says: Nov 16, 2011 3:47 PM

    Contemporary Pack fans will realize, pending further success, that this type of crap comes with the territory.

    The only reason the 2007 Patriots were “in your face” was because that’s the way it was projected with the media. The team would have much preferred to keep that stuff quiet. I remember Brady would come close to throwing up when asked about it toward the end.

    Mercury Morris likes himself better than the 2011 Packers or the 2007 Patriots

  14. JohnG says: Nov 16, 2011 3:53 PM

    When did the pats ever get in everyone’s face about their run? All I ever heard out of them were pleas to stop talking about it.

  15. trbowman says: Nov 16, 2011 3:53 PM

    No….this is not better than the 2007 Patriots. People must have short memories

  16. uwsptke says: Nov 16, 2011 3:54 PM

    I’m a huge Packers fan, but who the hell is Mercury Morris and why should I care what he says?

  17. i3addog says: Nov 16, 2011 3:55 PM

    I like the Packers chances, especially with Mike McCarthy running the show. He won’t let the Pack get too overconfident. 18-1 Would suck worse than 0-16.

  18. pftstory says: Nov 16, 2011 3:56 PM

    I agree 19 is not better then 17. It was impossible to win 19 in 1972.
    The topic is undefeated season, not most wins in a season. Undefeated is undefeated.

    People not liking the Dolphins reaction to seeing a challenge to them being the only ones is also different then undefeated is undefeated.

    Its probably harder to do today. But again, that is different then undefeated is undefeated.

  19. dvdman123 says: Nov 16, 2011 3:57 PM

    Who cares?

  20. packersrule12 says: Nov 16, 2011 3:58 PM

    “I have nothing but good things to say about the Packers”

    Until they (if) get closer to 17-0, then watch out.

  21. wikidpissah says: Nov 16, 2011 3:59 PM

    Morris doesn’t want anyone else to go undefeated because he’d never be quoted again.

  22. spreadthecheese says: Nov 16, 2011 4:00 PM

    As a Packers fan, it’s cool of Morris to say that, though I find it odd he’d be defensive about which team was better. If Green Bay goes 19-0, I’d say they’re better because of how the NFL works nowadays with free agency and the like.

    That being said, it doesn’t matter. Green Bay isn’t going undefeated, and I don’t really care if they do. The Super Bowl is what I’m after. Part of me, in an odd way, would rather just get a loss now and get it out of the way so the undefeated talk can stop, and the real goal can be focused on.

  23. usmarine75 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:02 PM

    And the 2007 Patriots like the 2011 Packers more than Mercury Morris…

  24. lionsfanatic84 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:03 PM

    Diehard lions fan here, and diehard packer hater, but I gotta admit I like the 2011 pack over the 07 pats, and they have a young deep team, not sure if they’ll be 19-0 but they have the best chance at a super bowl….. now before I wash my mouth with soap for patting the pack on the back, just wanna say the last team to beat them was the lions, don’t mean much now, but it feels good to say and it’ll feel better if I can say that on Thanksgiving

  25. theslex says: Nov 16, 2011 4:04 PM

    I was indifferent toward the Patriots until Brady publicly laughed at a Giant player’s prediction the Pats would core less than 20 points. You don’t see that kind of arrogance coming out of Green Bay.

  26. itsmammoth says: Nov 16, 2011 4:05 PM

    2007 Patriots would’ve killed those Dolphins.

  27. vuudu says: Nov 16, 2011 4:06 PM

    Really? Has he seen the arrogance of Rogers? The way he talks, the way he takes shot at people. He is playing good right now, but I doubt the level of his hubris will make him last like Manning.

  28. statbastard says: Nov 16, 2011 4:12 PM

    What Mr. Morris forgets is that, counting last years Super Bowl run, if GB goes 19-0, they’ll actually be 25-0 dating back to last year.

    Yeah, best team ever (if it happens).

  29. djmoore914 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:14 PM

    Are Mercury and Don the only two guys left alive from this team? No one else talks like they do. Why doesn’t he just shut up. No one cares.

  30. tombradyswig says: Nov 16, 2011 4:17 PM

    HE HATH SPOKEN!!!!!

  31. kindbass says: Nov 16, 2011 4:21 PM

    “They won’t be better than us just because they won 19 games.”

    Uh, what? That’s exactly what it means. And people forget, but the 2007 Pats were by far the best team of the modern era – until they played the Super Bowl, which they lost on an epic 2-minute drill that included one of the craziest plays in football history. One bounce goes different in that game and the 2007 Pats are football immortals. If the 2011 Packers go 19-0 and played the 2007 Patriots, what would happen? I don’t know, but I know they would both smash the 1972 Dolphins, who had one of the weakest schedules is NFL history.

  32. Zach says: Nov 16, 2011 4:25 PM

    Well stated vuudu. Brady did awesome that year, and is a great QB, Montana had many good years and is a Great QB, but neither of them live up to Manning and Marino. If Manning had half of the talent Brady did that year and Rodgers does this year, than it’d be a different story. To bad we’re learning just how bad the Colts are and just how good Manning is.

  33. tfbuckfutter says: Nov 16, 2011 4:25 PM

    Interesting.

    Because I like Mercury Poisoning better than Mercury Morris.

  34. committed2excellence says: Nov 16, 2011 4:26 PM

    They’re better even if they don’t win another game because ancient teams couldn’t beat today’s Colts let alone the Packers, what nonsense….. you’re no longer relevant Morris, accept it and do something else with your life than pretend your opinion matters.

  35. bing253 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:29 PM

    I think it has more to do with fact the Patriots and Dolphins are in the same division.
    So the idea that he likes the Packers better than a team that embarrassed his former Dolphins team twice that year is more of the reason.
    People in Chicago, Detroit and Minnesota probably like the 2007 Patriots better than these Packers because they could never root for a division rival?
    Also I never saw Tom Brady do the championship belt TD celebration that Rogers has made famous enough to be in a State Farm commercial? I hate to break it to Morris but most fans watch football to be entertained so I don’t think that is a bad thing and the only reason it’s “in your face” is because that’s the way media is today.

  36. jakek2 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:30 PM

    Both the 07 Pats and 11 Pack will have something in common. The G-Men will have ended both of their streaks.

  37. jvibottomline says: Nov 16, 2011 4:32 PM

    The 2009 Lions would beat the 1972 Dolphins

  38. wagn0404 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:33 PM

    “They won’t be better than us just because they won 19 games.”

    Sorry Merc, but the exact opposite is true. First, because 19 > 17, but also because the Packers will have pulled it off in a league in which factors such as free agency and an increased number of teams have made building a dynasty (or, at the very least a team talented enough to go undefeated) much more difficult than it was in 1972.

  39. freewayjim says: Nov 16, 2011 4:36 PM

    Mercury Morris accusing anybody of being “In your face” is laughable (Pot meet Kettle), he just wants some attention.

    I wonder how he’d feel if the Jets were 9-0?

  40. minkytails says: Nov 16, 2011 4:36 PM

    Isn’t it ironic that Mercury Morris forgets that the 73 Dolphins were better than the 72 Dolphins.

  41. sleazysnake says: Nov 16, 2011 4:40 PM

    Hey lionsfanatic84, you better check the schedule from last season again. The Lions were NOT the last team to beat the Green Bay Packers. That would be the New England Patriots, with Matt Flynn playing for a concussed Aaron Rodgers.

  42. hendeeze says: Nov 16, 2011 4:42 PM

    Lions fanatic…. im sure it does feel good to say that the lions were the last team to beat the packers. But you’re wrong. Just saying.

  44. thankheavenfornumberseven says: Nov 16, 2011 4:46 PM

    He’s right, going 19-0 doesn’t make the Packers better than the 1972 Dolphins. The fact that they’re better than the 1972 Dolphins makes them better than the 1972 Dolphins, along with at least 20 other teams in NFL history that did not go undefeated.

  45. Zachariah Claybaugh says: Nov 16, 2011 4:47 PM

    The one thing I hate about an undefeated team at this time of year is the inevitable emergence of Mercury Morris into the discussion.

    ….. now before I wash my mouth with soap for patting the pack on the back, just wanna say the last team to beat them was the lions……
    —————————————————–
    Actually, the last team to beat the Packers was the New England Patriots one week later. The Lions knocked Aaron Rodgers out with a concussion, and the Matt Flynn-led Packers nearly upset the Patriots the following game only to lose at the end.

    As difficult as 19-0 would be to achieve, I think it would be more impressive than the 1972 Dolphins only because the Packers came into 2011 riding a 6 game winning streak. The ’71 Dolphins lost the prior Superbowl, and the ’73 Dolphins lost their second game, giving them 18 straight wins including playoffs. The 2003-04 Patriots currently hold the longest streak at 21 games. If the Packers go undefeated, they’d have a winning streak of 25 games.

  48. weepingjebus says: Nov 16, 2011 4:50 PM

    Pats also had that little 21 game winning streak, including a Super Bowl win. That’s like a season and a half of old timey games.

  49. comeonnowguys says: Nov 16, 2011 4:53 PM

    2007 Patriots “greatest team in the modern era?”

    The greatest team in the modern era doesn’t lose the Super Bowl. Automatic disqualification.

  50. committed2excellence says: Nov 16, 2011 4:53 PM

    If the Packers go 19-0 they are the undisputed best football team in history because they would be undefeated back to back Champions. That’s unfathomable in the modern NFL. The Dolphins were far and away the best team in 1972 but they would get destroyed by LSU today, it wouldn’t be close. Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky would make Earl Morrall and Bob Griese look like a joke, and more importantly modern high school offensive and defensive lineman dwarf NFL trench warriors of the past. The 1972 Dolphins might not score a single point in today’s NFL, let alone win a game. Just stop talking Mercury.

  51. justadude71 says: Nov 16, 2011 4:53 PM

    I wonder how much faster, more athletic and bigger the 2011 Packers are compared to the 1972 Dolphins…

    Ummmm, no.
    The Patriots were “in your face” because after their coach was caught CHEATING for the second time (Spygate) he decided to take it out on the league by running up the score on every team, including throwing on the hapless Redskins in the 4th qtr after being up already by several td’s.

    To hell with Mercury Morris. I do like the Packers though. I look to the 2010 Packers as inspiration for my Chiefs. Yeah I said it my Chiefs. They had a losing record in mid season. Lost their starting running back,Tight end, defennsive back and at one point their QB while having a tough schedual during the second half of the season. Throug all that they some how managed to make the playoffs and run the table from their. Not saying where going to the superbowl but the playoffs are not out of reach seeing who is in our division.

    I’M JUST SAYING.

  57. punkyqb says: Nov 16, 2011 5:03 PM

    Isn’t Mercury Morris the running back that went to prison for coke or pot a number of years back. At the very least he got busted with some of it.

  58. skinsrock says: Nov 16, 2011 5:03 PM

    19 > 17… just saying… Mr Morris.

  59. nfloracle says: Nov 16, 2011 5:04 PM

    Mercury Morris gets to be more of a tool every year. Thank God we haven’t had to listen to him for a few years. But now that he’s opened his yap again, it seems like yesterday when he was everywhere pissing on the Pat’s fantastic season when they came so close to making Morris’s Dolphins a footnote.

  60. sschmiggles says: Nov 16, 2011 5:05 PM

    Flavor of the week mentality.

    The 2007 Patriots had the 4th ranked defense in the NFL in addition to one of the highest scoring offenses of all time.

    At this point in the season that year, Brady had already thrown 35 touchdowns. Rodgers has 28. And Brady didn’t benefit from the lockout effect: NFL defenses are giving up record numbers against the pass this year across the board.

    Not to mention the Pats played six playoff teams in the regular season.

    “One bounce goes different in that game and the 2007 Pats are football immortals.”

    That’s exactly why 19-0 hasn’t been done and why the BCS system is so stupid in college football. One ill-timed injury, one bad bounce, one tipped pass, or one bad call and perfection is gone (along with the shot at the championship in college). 19-0 would be cool, but in the era of parity where repeating almost never happens, I’d be ecstatic with just back-to-back Lombardis.

  67. grogansheroes says: Nov 16, 2011 5:29 PM

    I remember the 72 Dolphins, I think they beat one team with a winning record in the regular season, and I think it was Buffalo at 7-6. It’s funny because they had to play the AFC championship game in Pittsburg. But Mercury Morris is a felon drug addict. It was so funny they had the 20th anniversary of the undefeated season, and he could hear the crowd from his jail cell.

  68. nomesayin says: Nov 16, 2011 5:33 PM

    Back in 1972, professional football players might be seen doing a commercial for Tareyton cigarettes. (They’d rather fight than switch).

    The NFL players of today are so much bigger, stronger, faster, & better trained. They have access to cutting edge science & technology which assists them in being the most skilled athletes in NFL history. Today’s NFL players are like freaks of nature compared to the ’72 team…& could you imagine the ’72 Dolphins playing against the 2011 Dolphins with the meagre equipment they used back then? lolol. Even Csonka might have to be carried off the field on a stretcher!

    Thus, even the 2011 Miami Dolphins would merely wear down the ’72 squad, 10 times out of 10 if they played…nevermind the ’72 Dolphins vs 2011 Packers!

    It wouldn’t even be close.

  74. jrmbadger says: Nov 16, 2011 5:49 PM

    As far as Morris goes, I want the Pack to go undefeated just so we don’t have to hear from this guy again.

    As far as Rodgers’ belt celebration – If you know the history – it’s not an arrogance thing at all. It started when he was on the practice squad at a time when he was known more for his draft day fall than his big arm and laser-like accuracy. It was just a way to inspire his team-mates on the practice squad to play better. A way to have a little fun. If you notice – he’s only done it once or twice this year (excluding the State Farm commercials) because he doesn’t want it to be focused on so much. But, hey, he also has the right to do it this year – they are the champs aren’t they?

  75. glac1 says: Nov 16, 2011 5:51 PM

    __________________________________
    Running up the score on the hapless Redskins, huh? Guess you missed when that same HC, Gibbs offered to put his QB Rypien BACK IN THE GAME to get a td record when they were up by like 30 pts then? There’s no running up the score in pro football. I am sure Gibbs remembered that and that’s why he had 0 problem with what the Pats did when he was asked about it.

    Also Brady wasn’t laughing at Plax’s prediction itself, he laughed because an offensive player was commenting on what their defense would do. That’s what’s called “writing checks you don’t have to cash”. He laughed and said “Does Plax play defense? But of course, it’s very classy of Plax to talk trash to begin with. It’s only not classy to have a laugh at it in return.

    Really? Has he seen the arrogance of Rogers? The way he talks, the way he takes shot at people. He is playing good right now, but I doubt the level of his hubris will make him last like Manning.

    ******************************

    Hillarious. Have you ever seen the man do an interview or talk for more than 22 seconds on sportscenter? Aaron Rodgers goes out of his way to always say the right thing and is the most humble/chill guy I have seen on a superstar level. I suggest you look up the E:60 on Rodgers it shows how big of a boss he is off the field as well.

    Really? Has he seen the arrogance of Rogers? The way he talks, the way he takes shot at people. He is playing good right now, but I doubt the level of his hubris will make him last like Manning.
    ___________________
    Dumbest statement of the week award goes too vuudu. How is Rodgers arrogant. I watch Packer clips, highlights, and interviews galore and have never seen Rodgers be disrespectful to other players unless they had it coming. I don’t think Manning had a particularly long career either though.

    I guess I need to go back and ask my Math teacher about this.

    Isn’t 18-0 > 17-0?

    I realize the Pats went 18-1, but 2 weeks before the Super Bowl when they were 18-0, isn’t that “greater than” 17-0?

    In my math book, 18 will always be “greater than” 17.

    I would love for the Pack to go 19-0 just so Mercury Morris would shut up. When did he get out of jail anyway?

  85. granadafan says: Nov 16, 2011 6:17 PM

    Ah, the inevitable crawling from under the cracks by the 1972 Dolphins. These guys are insufferable and bitter and just can’t be happy for the guys playing the game today comfortable in their own retirement. The fact that they crack open champagne every time a team loses a game is just ridiculous.

    Flavor of the week mentality.

    The 2007 Patriots had the 4th ranked defense in the NFL in addition to one of the highest scoring offenses of all time.
    ———————————————————
    THE highest scoring offense of all time, by a decent margin. In 2007, they scored 589 points and, like you said, were 4th in the league in both scoring defense and yards allowed. The 2011 Packers won’t even come close to that. They may, however, win a Super Bowl.

    Patriots fan here…

    Not this guy again. Why do people interview him. That was barely the same sport he was playing in the early 70s. Please don’t cover these idiot ex-dolphins, including Shula who is the biggest idiot.

    If the Packers go 19-0 that’s better than the 2007 Patriots. The Patriots were a great record breaking team and statistically may have been better, but they didn’t win the Superbowl so you can’t compare. As great as 2007 was, 2001,2003 and 2004 were better. Gotta win it.

    That said, the Packers can still lose one easily. Their schedule is not crazy, but a few tough games coming up.

    I’d love to see Brady and Belichick have a chance to stop them in the Superbowl.

    sschmiggles: Let me put you in your place with a little statistical schooling. FYI, Brady had 33 TDs to this point in 07. He only had 17 his last half which is pathetic for him. They ran the score up on everyone. GB doesnt. They did have 4th ranked DEF but they played washed up scrubs. Look at the schedule. 6 of their games were against AFC East teams which were a combined 12-52 that season.We wont know how many playoff teams GB has played bc nobody has made the playoffs yet. Thru the 1st 9 games, GB is ahead of NE by 6 in points scored. Im pretty sure GB’s offense would destroy the 07 Pats. Hell, they almost got beat by AJ Feeley. I hope you remeber, bc I sure do. I remember that beatdown they gave the G-Men in the Super Bowl…oh wait. Remeber your 07 season means nothing, because you won nothing. Rodgers is a far more superior QB than Jan Brady, even after only 4 yrs as a starter…just ask anyone blitzing Jan Brady.

    You’re dreamin’ jnbnet, I haven’t missed a play or an interview of the Packers this year. Rodgers hasn’t done “the belt thing” in weeks. And the only time anyone on that team talks 19-0 is when some reporter sticks it in their face, and then they say “we’re 1-0 this week, trying to go 1-0 next week”!
    Go ahead and hate on the Packers if you must, but don’t make s%&t up to do it. You’re obviously still pi$$ed about your Steelers gettin;’ their a$$es kicked.

    I don’t know if the ’07 Patriots are the best team of all time, but for the first 12 games of that season, they were the most dominant professional sports team I’ve ever seen.

    They faded, and so can the Packers. Especially when the weather gets cold, and the passing games slow a bit. James Starks doesn’t scare anyone. I’m rooting for them, but if I were a betting man, I’d bet they get in one of their track meets and get nipped at some point.

    LAME

    But typical of an idiot Patriots fan who will try to spin any and every debate to pathetically try to pretend that their team is somehow superior to the team of another. 18-0 two weeks before the Super Bowl is USELESS if you can’t win the only game that matters. The Super Bowl. Which your team lost. The End. No soup for you. Go home losers.

    There is only ONE undefeated champion in the history of the Super Bowl…and it’s the Dolphins, NOT the Pats. Second place is the first loser..which is what the Pats were in 2007. The first loser…EIGHTEEN and D’OH!!!!

    LOSERS…just like their fan base.

    And as for Morris, drug problem or not, he is still a better man than your mommy’s basement living, welfare-collecting, crybaby arse. And given that you probably are a public school dropout, it’s no wonder that your “math” is as flawed as Bush’s “fuzzy math” was…which makes perfect sense, given that Dumya has New England roots.

Some, like the LA Bulldogs are defunct. None the less, the NFL is horrid in recognizing and celebrating its history.

    You must not have, because you’d realize the AFC East was laughably weak. Meanwhile, the Packers are playing in perhaps the toughest division in the league right now.

    It wasn’t them talking, it was the way they ran up the score late in games, how they refused to pull brady or run the ball. In my opinion, that is why Brady’s/Moss’s records from that year are tainted. Manning could have thrown 60 if he ran up the score instead of killing clock (ya know? like every other team in the league). They pissed off the football gods and karma came back to haunt them. boom.

  130. deadeye says: Nov 16, 2011 11:53 PM

    It’s apparent that some NFL will also go eventually undefeated with a 19-0 record. How many times did Manning get to 10-0? And of course the Patriots were one miracle catch away from 19-0 back in 2007. It’s gonna happen eventually.

    I think this year’s Packers have what it takes to go 19-0. The only thing that could interfere is an untimely injury. And I’m certain they won’t be “resting” Rodgers in weeks 15, 16, and 17. Green Bay remembers from last season that the playoffs are all about momentum, not being “rested”.

  131. kingkreg12 says: Nov 17, 2011 12:03 AM

    Man, I really cannot stand this dude any longer. 17-0 is not that same as 19-0 you clown. The Patriots went 18-0 in a season so they even surpassed what you accomplished in one year.

    Who is to say that you would have gone 16-0 in the regular season if when you played there were two more games. You can’t go around saying you’re the best when you didn’t accomplish the same thing, that is if the Packers do run the table.

    I look back at 2007 and remember the Patriots dismantling teams much like the Packers are. Packers are throwing late in games when they are up by a bunch. Got to the 1st and goal and Rodgers was throwing every down up 24 before his 4th TD.

    I remember the Pats being humble with the media the same way the Pack is this year, so for Morris to say the Pats were showboating is just clownish. These teams are actually eerily similar in many aspects so keep your trap shut Morris, you hater.

  132. edgerules says: Nov 17, 2011 12:04 AM

    I was wondering when coke head Morris was going to run his danged yap. I mean, enough already. If anyone was “in your face,” it was MORRIS. My goodness, in 2007, after the Patriots got to about 10-0 or a little after, he and that Shula moron would start their chirping about the Patriots “knocking on their door,” and all that crap. I mean, and he said the PATRIOTS were the ones who acted like people had to “kiss their ring?” I was wondering if he was on coke again. HE was the one who was acting like THEY should have kissed HIS ring.

    Now, I admit Coach Bellichick is not exactly Mr. Congeniality, and Mr. Modesty, but if anyone thinks the Green Bay Packers are not arrogant, they are kidding themselves.

    We already heard the aging Woodson yapping about going undefeated. If there were a horse race for the most arrogant, know it all NFL Head Coach, I would say it would be a neck and neck battle between the New Orleans Saints’ Sean Payton, and the Packers’ Mike McCarthy with McCarthy just nosing Payton out at the wire. I have never seen a head coach so arrogant as McCarthy. He just comes across as a know it all, and in that game last season against the Patriots, he tried to out coach Bellichick, and got his rear end kicked.

    At the Super Bowl, actually a week before, McCarthy and the Packer organization had the COHONES to have some jeweler come in and have everyone sized for RINGS. Now, how arrogant do you have to be to do that? The media revealed this nugget AFTER the Packers won, whearas before the game, they just bombard the Steelers with last minute distractions. How convenient.

    That’s neither here nor there, it was a very arrogant move. If the Packers had lost, it would have looked stupid.

    As for some saying the Super Bowl Loss DQs the 2007 Patriots from being considered one of the best teams ever, I disagree with that. Man O’ War lost a race. Does that DQ him from being the best horse ever? Secretariat never won a race he entered that started with the letter W. That means he is a lousy horse? Those 1990s Bills teams never won the SB. ARe they lousy?

    What I am saying is that it is not black and white. In the fourth quarter, Tom Brady did, what Tom Brady does. Brady put that team in position to win. The team ultimately lost because of a couple of unlucky bounces due to 1. Asante Samuel dropping an interception that surely would have iced the game, and then a couple of plays later, 2. a very, VERY lucky play (the Tyree catch) that lead to the game winning TD. That is the way the ball bounces, and unfortunately, it didn’t go the Pats’ way.

    I just don’t think that wipes out an entire brilliant season. I have them as one of the best teams ever in my mind anyway.

    Well stated vuudu. Brady did awesome that year, and is a great QB, Montana had many good years and is a Great QB, but neither of them live up to Manning and Marino. If Manning had half of the talent Brady did that year and Rodgers does this year, than it’d be a different story. To bad we’re learning just how bad the Colts are and just how good Manning is.

    This has to be one of the most ignorant things I have ever read. Peyton Manning has had Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne on his team for his whole career, sometimes both at the same time. Brady had Moss for 2 years essentially and has put up eye popping numbers with him. If he had a WR like that his whole career he would be king of stats over Manning.

    In 2007 Brady had Moss and that’s pretty much it. Welker was a slot devil but outside of that there wasn’t much there. Try to name a weapon other than Moss that Brady has had throughout his career. Gronk is a beast now, but Welker is not a go to #1 WR… he is just too small.

    Manning has had Harrison, Wayne and Dallas Clarke for most of his career…. I guess you’re right, those are not good weapons.

    Mercury Morris , is correct in one regard. The Dolphins are the only team to be PERFECT. Now to his dislike of the Patriots . He didnt like the way they came across. Well then he needs to stop being a blindsided idiot and get his glasses fixed. It was the way the media made the Pats look. They are the most heavily talked about team in the NFL. No matter what they do its front page news. They start the quest for a perfect season by the time they were 7-0 thats all you heard. Look at the amount of points they are beating teams bye. Atleast the PAckers got to this point before they started. Then Spygate the point the media always forgot to mention was that the memo for video tapping was sent league wide , but they harped on the patriots. You always here about what the Pats are doing no matter what. Greenbay is a small market team so the media coverage of them wont be as intense as in Boston or the Northeast as a whole. Arron Rogers is having a great season I dont see as many cameras or interviews on him as was Brady when he was putting up those numbers, or the fact the Packers have the 31st ranked Defense. But the Pats = Ratings .MR. Morriss you are more of a media Puppet than any Patriot then or now.

    Patriots fan here…

    Not this guy again. Why do people interview him. That was barely the same sport he was playing in the early 70s. Please don’t cover these idiot ex-dolphins, including Shula who is the biggest idiot.

    If the Packers go 19-0 that’s better than the 2007 Patriots. The Patriots were a great record breaking team and statistically may have been better, but they didn’t win the Superbowl so you can’t compare. As great as 2007 was, 2001,2003 and 2004 were better. Gotta win it.

    That said, the Packers can still lose one easily. Their schedule is not crazy, but a few tough games coming up.

    I’d love to see Brady and Belichick have a chance to stop them in the Superbowl.

    Too bad your mediocre Pats won’t get that chance.

    “As for some saying the Super Bowl Loss DQs the 2007 Patriots from being considered one of the best teams ever, I disagree with that. Man O’ War lost a race. Does that DQ him from being the best horse ever? Secretariat never won a race he entered that started with the letter W. That means he is a lousy horse? Those 1990s Bills teams never won the SB. ARe they lousy?”

    You cannot be the greatest team in history if you weren’t even the greatest team for the year in question. It’s simple logic to anyone west of the Connecticut River.

    It’s not like they lost some random regular season game. They lost the Super Bowl, the game that determines the NFL champion.

    If you’re going to ignore what happens in the Super Bowl, then why even play the game?

    Unless you want to admit the Rams were a better team than the Patriots in 2001 and revoke the Patriots first win. Near-exact reversal of 2007.

    The difference in the 72 Fins and the 07 Pats is that the 72 Fins actually WON the Super Bowl! hahahahaahahahahahahaha. Tom Brady is a female.

    To best the greatest, you have to be the champion. In the words of Ol Vince Lombardi, “At the end of the day, all that matters is whats on the scoreboard”.

    Giants 17
    Patriots 14

    Get over it. You lost.

    Patriots 3 Super Bowls

    That’s all that matters. How you win it gives you some style points, but no one cares but the idiots from that Miami team and any fans that are still alive and haven’t completely abandoned their useless team.

  151. quittsburghstoolers says: Nov 18, 2011 9:06 AM

    I hope that some team soon goes undefeated and wins the Super Bowl so we won’t ever need to hear from any of the 1972 Dolphins ever again.

    Been tired of hearing from those bragging guys for over 35 years…

    bozosforall,

    Wow! Do you really get so spun up that easily?

    For the record, I hate the Patriots, I’m not from New England, I moved out of my parent’s house at 17 when I went to college and in college, I passed 4 semesters of calculus. So I kinda like math and feel I’m pretty good at it. I also agree with you that Bush’s math was fuzzy.

    My comments were brought up from a purely mathematical standpoint… 18 > 17. Every day of the week. Nothing fuzzy about it. It has nothing to do with “undefeated”.

    The Dolphins didn’t win 18 games in a season and the Patriots did. I don’t like it either, but it’s nothing that would ever cause me to sling insults on the internet.

    Not “spun up” at all, harold. The thread IS about being undefeated. Your comments are moot, given that the 18 wins didn’t result in an undefeated campaign by the Pats. Winning more games merely because one has more opportunities doesn’t make the Pats better than the Dolphins, just fortunate that they had more chances to do so.

    And as for slinging insults on the Internet, stick around and I’m certain that you will find that the Pats fan base here is by far the most egregious slingers of insults on PFT. Just stop by any Jets thread if you want proof of this.

    Flawed logic in the 19>17. The Dolphins that year played most of the year with a backup quarterback. Griese didn’t even come back until the AFC Championship game. The Packers have a great team and forget about the h2h theory, the Dolphins that year had the number 1 offense and defense. They have every right to boast and take pride in something no one else has done. As far as the 07 Patriots vs this years Packer team in my own opinion this Packer team is better. Their overall receiver core is deeper and have a better defense. Both were great teams though.

    @comeonnowguys

    I will gladly admit the 2001 Rams were better than the Pats. We won that game because we were better that day. There is a big difference between a team choking and a team being better than another one.

    Ravens just lost to Seattle this past Sunday. You really think they were a better team than the Ravens???

    Please cut the crap with trying to reason with people in NE. You guys love to try and find reasons to call us unreasonable arrogant clowns. You are a clown if you think the Giants were a better team for that season. I believe the Patriots pulled off an undefeated season that year at 16-0. Was there anyone better that year? Or ever for that matter? NO! The Giants showed up on Super Sunday and got their championship. They were NOT a better team than the Patriots. It even took a ridiculous miracle play for them to win that day as it was.

    Yes they are champs, yes they were the better team that day….. NO THEY WERE NOT THE BEST TEAM THAT SEASON!!

    There are college teams that could have beaten the ’72 Dolphins. They played the most laughable schedule of any SB winner in history. The ’73 Dolphins were actually a much, much better team. It is infinitely harder to go undefeated in this day that it was when Morris played. Even the 0-16 Lions could have beaten the ’72 Dolphins.

    I just wish people would stop interviewing this d-bag.

    “85 Bears will always be considered the greatest team regardless of record”

    Not even the best team of the 1980s, can you get an easier SB opponent than the Tony Eason led Pats, no one can name more than a few players from that team unless they were a Bahstan fan.

    Eason, Tippett, Fryar, i’m stumped….
