    Lewis is a great player, but it is as much all this NFL Films coverage of him shooting his mouth off before games and giving his "emotional" speeches to kids is what has garnered him his legacy.

    and within every dewdrop
    a world of struggle.

    Jason Taylor should be on that list. 6th all time in sacks and most touchdowns by a defensive lineman

    Csonka, Marino, Taylor and Thomas should all be on that list maybe a couple more.

    Does the list really matter? all that matters is winning a super bowl. records and being 100 at whatever doesn't mean **** unless you have a super bowl ring.
    Marino is about the only one. You could make a case for Stephenson, Little, Csonka, Taylor. That's about it. And let's say that they were all in the top 100. then what? who cares?

    I will never accept this sick, demented notion that Elway and Favre were better than Marino. I don't give a **** about the championships, Danny was a better player than they were.

    Everybody in the media loves the Patriots. Lots of conspuracy theories swirling around why. Undisputed is that up until the 2000s the Dallas Cowboys were called America's Team. One of the theories in 2001 was that America after 9/11 needs a new sports identity. The Patriots (Patriotism) playing mostly in red-white-blue is a perfect fit and with the silver representing the phrase "silver lining in the future/on the horizon". It is ironic that The Patriots just signed Drew Bledsoe to a 10 year contract and then lost him in the second game of that season. Brady was drafted the year before that and probably would have never seen the field if not for the injury caused by a New York Jets player.
    The Patriots finished dead last in the AFC East the year before and were expected to be again the doormat of the AFC East.

    That year the Patriots ran a 10-2 record with a back QB drafted in the 6th round the year before after going 1-3 to start the season. It was the year of the 'tuck rule' and without that gimme by the refs the Patriots would have been out of the playoffs. It is also the year when more and more fans and opponents complaint about the lax holding rules applied to the Patriots OL. This accusation has manifested itself over the years.

    I am currently reading the book Spygate, The Untold Story by O'Leary.
