Re: Quality of Wins - Not Important
The last 6 (9 if you include the playoffs) games for NE in 2007's 16-0 run, they weren't DOMINANT at all.
Check it out for yourselves. After the 10-0 start:
Struggled vs. PHI
Refs screwed the Ravens
The PIT game was 17-13 in the 3rd
20-10 win over NYJ...Brady was horrid that day
Brady not sharp vs. ONE WIN Miami
We all know about the shootout in week 17 vs. NYG
JAX took them to the limit in the divisional round, SD had a boatload of injuries (Remember Rivers playing with an ACL tear; LT being out after 2-3 plays) and they lost the Super Bowl.
Looking for the Mona Lisa week to week just is unrealistic.
I guess this is where I say.....
