    W're only 1/2 game out of the wild card. Many teams are declining (Pitt/Balt). Don't lose faith just yet.

    I don't think Phibin would let that happen, if we can play ourselves into that position. Also, I like the veteran makeup we have now too. Not the same lockerroom that had guys like Vontae Davis, and Brandon Marshall acting as constant distractions.

    They are the best team on the AFC no doubt. Brady is going to light that Texans secondary I watched last night up like a friggin Christmas tree. The jets had street free agents and CB's getting open all night.

    Not sure about that one. I'd put the Ravens ahead of the Patriots right now, and the Texans ARE the best team in the AFC until proven otherwise.

    Don't remind us. That's a scary proposition. Let's hope not, but I don't think these group of players want to go down that road again. Only time will tell.

    Looking a teams schedules I don't see any reason why at the end of the season we can't be in and around one of the two wildcard spots. There are a lot of bad teams in the AFC... Last year Cincy got in with 9-7 ......

    Definitely saw some weaknesses in the Texans defense against the Jets. They struggled to cover Cumberland who's a fairly athletic TE...wait till they have to play Gronk and Hernandez. And their special teams coverage units...we got a punt return for a TD on them and then they give up a kick off return for a TD to the Jets...that's an issue that could really come up and bite them.

    The AFC is definitely weak this year. Outside of Houston, Baltimore and probably New England, there are no other clear cut teams that are a lock for a playoff spot. The NFC is where it's at this year. You've got 5 teams with 4+ wins and the Giants who are still the defending champions. Hell, one division has 4 teams with winning records! The NFC has become what the AFC was for the majority of the past decade.

    I respectively disagree. I could never cheer for the current Patriots to win any game unless it directly puts our current team into a better playoff situation. There are plenty of other teams out there that can ruin their undefeated record.

    But I agree that I hope they lose soon, same with the Falcons!

    At the risk of inviting the resident troll to spin his way into this thread, I couldn't help but laugh at this one...

    Musket fire, huh. There really are patriots fans out there, i've never met one before or seen one, other than on tv. They do exist, I just assumed they were like a 3 dollar bill.

    nope, patriots represented the afc in the super bowl last season. They are the team to beat until proven otherwise.

    Last season is last season. Right now there are at least two teams playing better than the Patriots in the AFC...the Ravens (who beat the Pats, btw) and the undefeated Texans. If the Texans can beat the Pats, then you can make that argument, but in no way is a 3-2 Patriots team better than a 5-0 Texans team.
