But now with a salary cap and all teams with the same amount to spend to see a team like this come along is very very rare and will probably never be seen again in our lifetime.
I think all teams are within 5-6million of the cap so not sure how much more competitive you can get. If you take the Pats out of the equation the rest of the league is very competitive so that argument is just sour grapes. Just because the Pats look so dominant does not mean that any team on any given Sunday cannot beat them.. Unfortunately for the rest of the league the Pats understand this and prepare very hard every week and it shows.
Game preparation is huge, it's not like they are taking 6 days off in between laying some smack down on the next opponent. They Prepare better than any team in history and thats why they are undefeated and will go down as one of the best if not the best team in history!
Sour grapes?? Are you kidding? That doesn't make sense, man!
If there's no other team at, or near, the level of the Patriots...The competition level is less than adequate! It doesn't matter if the other teams are competitive within themselves, if the Patriots are so far above the rest.
Come on, Pats fans. I know it's hard to admit it! I can understand. You think everybody wants to knock down the best team, for the sake of knocking them down.
Well, I can tell you one thing...I'm NOT one of those persons! I actually like the Patriots, and was pulling for them in EVERY SB they played in - XXXVI, XXXVIII, & XXXIX, which they won all 3!
Play On! ;-)
