What can you say the New England Patriots Football team is now an official Dynasty. Sunday they broke the NFL record (or defacto record) of consecutive wins without a loss (19).
To this day the Pats get no respect. They weren't even the lead story on ESPN yesterday. Wheather you like them or not they are now a bon a fide dynasty in an era of football where the pundits say that with free agency the concept of dynasty is exstinct. Then the Patriots come along. Tom Brady and company are the perfect example of TEAM and Bill Belecheck is the perfect example of the General of the Dynasty Army called the Patriots.
`The Patriots achievement is not only unprecedented but also remarkable when you consider how competitive our league is today,'' commissioner Paul Tagliabue said in a statement. ``Congratulations to the entire Patriots organization on this extraordinary milestone.''
The NFL officially recognizes records only set during the regular season. The Pats, whose current streak includes three playoff wins, can tie the NFL's record for consecutive regular-season victories (17) by beating Seattle next week.
