Maybe I'm the only one so far on this thread who is a Pats fan from the Boston area, but I have to tell you, I've been a fan since 1970, and man, some of those teams were the suckiest bunch of sucks who ever sucked. Here in NE we've put our time in with these guys: 1976 rip-off by the officials against Oakland, 1986 rout by the Bears, Desmond Howard/Parcells in 1997, Blew Dredsoe (ugh!), Victor Kiam, please. These guys do play with class as a team, and I'm glad to hear many of you saying this. Never before 2001 did any other football fan from elsewhere admire the Patriots, unlike, say the Cowboys, Steelers, 49ers, etc. Now we're lovin' it up here, and if you want to watch a winner, feel free to jump on board, 'cause Belichick, Kraft, and Paoli know how to construct and run this organization.
