The Pats did have a winning record last year though (9 - 7) and was left out of the playoffs because of the tiebreakers. The Bucs and Rams went 7 -9 after their Super Bowl appearences and the the Raiders went 4 -12. Carolina was 7 - 9 last year. An arguement can be made for the Patriots that a dynasty is actually in the making (as long as they beat Carolina). The Patriots could actually have a better team next year as long as they can keep Ty Law. With Roosevelt Colvin coming back and all those early draft picks in April, I could see the Pats winning two in a row easily.

Well Dan, it's not that far fetched. With that coach, Brady and some other key players, you guys could be in the playoffs every year for the next decade. It's amazing what ya'll have done with out a solid running game and a #1 type of WR.

You only have 15 draft picks this year!?! Is that enough? Geez, and I'm sure you will trade some away for additonal picks in next years draft. The Pat's have away of doing that and collecting extra picks down the road at a better value. They will be a tough team to beat.

I did and it makes no sense. The next Superbowl champ will be either the Carolina Panthers or the New England Patriots. Maybe in your bizarro world, the Titans are going to turn back time and not choke.

I wonder how much of why teams have such a hard time repeating, or even making it to the playoffs, after being in the SB has to do with all of the praise and distractions that come their way. It seems like between the lure of the talk show circuit, Campbell's commercials, and other promos there is no time left for football. Even if it's just thinking about football. How much time is spent getting there, and once there do you dedicate yourself as much during the offseason? With all the publicitiy and the love for the mic or camera athletes are more concerned with maximizing themselves, rather than the team. Call it the Leon affect, or a Sapp syndrome. Too easily lured away from the game for the cash and the fame.

yes, i would love to see the Pats win a few more after this year, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Let's just focus on winning this year.

After all, would you consider the Rams to be a dynasty?
They won the Super Bowl three years ago,
made the playoffs the next year with a 9-7 record,
then the next year went into the Super Bowl with a 16-2 record but lost to us Pats.

I wouldn't consider them to be a dynasty. Hopefully we don't fall into their trap and that we actually win the Super Bowl twice in three years.
Go Pats!
