I don't think it's being cocky as much as it is a direct reflection of the bias the media has when referencing these two clubs. On the one hand you have a small market team with no trophies in the case vs. a media darling in a big market with multiple championships to their credit.

We all know that NE is a perennial contender and it's more of a shock when they don't contend for the playoffs but if you use the "each year is a fresh start" method you will see how their past just doesn't mean anything.

Does our past transgressions have any bearing on how this group of players performs? Does the fact that Mike Ditka coached the Bears to a championship in 85 give the Bears the inside track to a wild card spot? Or conversely, does the multiple playoff and championship failures the Patriots have endured recently mean that they are just a speed bump on the way to the Super Bowl for one team or another?

The answer to these profound questions is no.

These are different teams with different players and in some cases different coaches from years past. The past is irrelevant. It's all about now. These two teams must suit up on Monday come out and lay it on the line. The best team will win. And in my incredibly biased and homertastic opinion, that team will be us.

The Patriots have been to the playoffs every single year and a few superbowl appearances .. AFC Championship last year, so who the hell are you to start this thread?  What has Carolina done lately?  And who the heck is Cam Newton for Carolina to be favored to the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick led New England Patriots that are 7-2 and leading the division.  This thread makes me want to vomit, it is sooo arrogant and soo stupid and very disrespectful to the game of football.  You guys want to talk about a cake schedule, who have you all beat?  And what real quarterback other then Drew Brees have you beaten?  You guys better beat him, you see him in the division every freakin year, so it doesn't count.  You guys beat the no offense overrated San Fransisco 49ers and Colin Kaepernick, a second year read option quarterback? lol don't make me laugh.  You guys better be lucky San Fran can't score.  Go on a little winning streak and now all of a sudden you are the best team in the NFC? lol that is Seattle, hate to burst your little bubbles and boost of confidence.  Funny how I only came on this site because fans came over to ours first talking trash for no reason.  Well let me make this simple for you.  You guys are a one dimensional team, great defense and no offense that has not faced a Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady led team outside of your division, well let me spell it out for you.  ON MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL YOUR CONFIDENCE WILL BE SHAKEN and YOU WILL BE KNOCKED BACK DOWN TO EARTH.. because YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THE BIGTIME.  and Cam Newton will only DREAM of going toe to toe with Tom Brady.  Cam is a great athlete that is garunteed to throw a pick or two at least once a game.  I cannot wait for this game.. to humble some of this unnecessary noise from this site.

They're still The Pats. Respect is due to Brady and Belichick running an offense with so many limitations. Gronk or no Gronk, that offense can still put up points. We're facing an elite QB this week. Brady ain't no Kaepernick.

Because we been MIA for years and feel a little good about ourselves! You guys be talking "darn it, we didn't win the Super Bowl for the 10th time! Division Champs, Conference champs don't mean dilly doo to us if we don't win the superbowl" Ahhh… we lucky to just get a win right now (which we are currently doing) who gives a poo, we are winning and feeling confident right now. Sure, I believe you guys will win, but it won't be this Monday!

Lets compare shall we;

Patriots beat the 2-7 Falcpns by 7.. We beat them by 28.

You guys lost to the Jets and only won Buffalo by 2. Grant it we lost to the Bills by 1 pt BUT if the Patriots are as good as you claim, shouldnt it be more than a 2 pt difference in the Bills matchups? You guys lost to the Bengals and only beat... You know something, here.. Ill make it easier. Panthers have outscored opponents in wins 178-57. The Pats have outscored their opponents 201-132

Oh and here is Tom Brady's stats this year.. 2256 passing yds, 57% completion rate, 13 TDs, 6 ints 82 QB rating. Cam's; 1970 passing yds, 63% completion, 17 total TDs, 8 ints and 88 QB rating.

The Bengals and the second Jets game were losses. In fact they are 2-2 on the road, soon to be 2-3.
