Founded in 1960 as a member of the AFL and calling themselves the Boston Patriots until 1970, the Patriots were initially a mediocore team. Made the playoffs just twice in the 1970s and 3 times in the 1980s. However, 1985 featured a miraculous run in which they made the Super Bowl (as a wild card) after winning 3 straight road playoff games. However, they were crushed by the Bears in the title game (the Steelers became the first team to win a Super Bowl after 3 straight road playoff victories this year). Became a decent franchise in the 1990s with eccentric coach Bill Parcells and quarterback Drew Bledsoe with 4 playoff berths and a loss in the Super Bowl in 1996. Established a dynasty in recent years with Tom Brady, a former 6th round draft pick, as a superstar quarterback. Have made the playoffs 4 times in the last 5 years, included 3 Super Bowl wins. Won their 3 titles by a combined 9 points- Super Bowls XXXVI and XXXVIII on last second Adam Vinatieri field goals and Super Bowl XXXIX after holding off an Eagles comeback.
"And with 3 seconds left, Adam Vinatieri sets up in a tie game, trying to win the Super Bowl for New England. That kick is on the way, it's long enough and good! The New England Patriots have shocked the Rams and have won the Super Bowl."

A classless and arrogant NFL team who represents the New England Region and play their games in Foxboro, Massachusettes because they do not wish to be associated with the Boston area or the rest of Massachusettes. This is typical because they have the worst fans in the League, even if they are loyal. They are sore winners AND sore losers. They mock teams win they win and mock them when they lose. The Patriots and their fans believe they are entitled to win EVERY game. When they lose, they create all kinds of whiny little excuses including accusing the other team of "cheating," the referees cheating, the sound from the crowd being too loud to hear the calls (especially when playing in a dome), communications being interupted, etc. The team refuses to take responsibility for losing a game and believe they are entitled to win it all. The Patriots have been fined in the past for cheating and videotaping other teams making their plays. They are Classless with a capital-C and not as good or sportsmenlike as they come across. Getting 3 Super Bowls doesn't mean class.
The New England Patriots are the most classless team in the NFL with classless fans to follow, who will mock ANY team they beat.

A team who successfully pulled the greatest chokejob in the history of American sports. They went into Super Bowl XLII with a perfect 18-0 record after going 16-0 in the regular season and winning twice in the playoffs before losing in the Super Bowl against the New York Giants.
The New England Patriots won every game in the 2007-2008 season...except the one that mattered the most. Can we say that this is the most overrated team of all-time?

Team that was so full of themselves in the 2007 - 2008 season they actually made 19 - 0 gear before the Super Bowl against the greatest fucking team the New York Giants. A team that has asterisks after their 3 Super Bowl wins in the 2000's. Their coach is Bill Belichick, a guy who can show his team credit and say they are the best, but doesnt wanna give anyone else credit when their team gets their ass handed to them in the Super Bowl. Their Quarterback is Tom Brady, a guy who crys like a little bitch when his team loses and choked 5 times getting sacked and going 18 - 1 losing the "biggest game of his career". Their main Wide Receiever is Randy Moss who is another bitch just like his quarterback. Both Moss and Brady dropped out of the Pro Bowl to go cry in their beds about choking on perfection. Mercury Morris cant stand these guys and loves the fact his '72 dolphins are the only perfect team in "perfectville". Basically, a team full of shit who cant win the big one when it counts.
Retarded New England Patriots Fan : 19 - 0 bitch, yeah Giants aint gonna do shit they suck.

Giants Fan : We'll see you loser.

(After the Super Bowl)

Giants Fan : What was that? 19 - 0?

Pats Fan : Shut up, we still won 18 games!

Giants Fan : Ok, wheres the Lombardi Trophy at and where are your rings? Exactly, shut up and bow down to your daddy bitch.
