What does the "if" statement have to do with the being fixed part?
It's pretty obvious, why play the game, if the Patriopts got that 1st down against the Colts they win the SB 40 against chicago..right..nobody can beat Bob Krafts team in a SB can they ???

I have heard this from hundreds of Pat fans the 3rd & 4th away from their 4th SB...not a once I heard a single word realizing they could have lost...and this is a team that couldn't beat the Miami Dolphins 2nd stringers ...

Well, the general consensus this year even before the playoffs started was that whatever teams advance to the Superbowl, the AFC was going to win in easily. That is where most of that comes from.

Didn't have much to do with the potential of it being the Patriots.

"Any given Sunday" man. They may have lost A game to the Phins, but they also beat those same Bears that went to the SB.

I guess you missed the 96 Superbowl?

As Undertaker pointed out, most people thought the AFC was much stronger than the NFC and whoever won the AFC Championship game would win the superbowl, that thought process was correct..

As a pats fan I have no doubt we would have beaten the Bears, could I be wrong about that? yes..

Good point & I agree, Bears looked like they had something happening for the NFC but Grossman ...I said it all....The Saints came on tough & they could compete...But I agree the AFC was no doubt stronger, But was that because of San diego, Colts & Baltimore...or the Patriots who got beat by those teams & 11 +.500% teams including Detroit & Miami ??????

The Bears had something like 19 turnovers in the previous 4 games against the Pats & had 4 in that game ...the Patriots had 5 turnovers & won as "Ugly" as you could win a game...

Is that game a good example?.. that was a 4 point gm that could have easily went either way 30-3....

1972 Dolphins

This Dolphins team was voted best ever by the NFL Films panel. Not when you take a closer look. The '72 Dolphins played a ridiculously easy schedule in a terribly weak AFC. Counting the division rivals -- the Colts, Patriots and Bills twice -- Miami's 14 opponents had a combined record of 70-122-4, a .367 winning percentage, the worst ever for a Super Bowl champion.




Sporting News Archives/Icon SMI

Don Shula's Dolphins beat everyone they played in 1972, but their list of regular-season victims included just two teams that finished over .500.

There's an old adage in sports: You can only beat who you play. Well, the '72 Dolphins beat a bunch of nobodies. None of their opponents reached the playoffs, and only two of them -- the Giants and Chiefs -- finished over .500. Each was 8-6.



The 1972 Dolphins are the only Super Bowl winner since the merger that didn't face a playoff team and the only Super Bowl winner ever that didn't face a team that won nine or more games. It looks like the Patriots will have beaten at least three teams headed for the 2007 playoffs -- the Chargers, Cowboys and Colts, and would have to beat two more: the Steelers and Giants.



What's more, that Dolphins team did not face a quarterback who finished that season with a rating north of 84 (that would have been Norm Snead, not exactly in the prime of his career).



There's something to be said for a team that knows how to win close games, but the Dolphins weren't good enough to blow anybody out in 1972. They beat the 7-7 Vikings by two, the 4-9-1 Bills by one, the 7-7 Jets by four.



And then they sputtered in their first two postseason games, overcoming a 14-13 fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Cleveland Browns, whose quarterback was the one and only Mike Phipps. That year, the Browns scored the fewest points of any playoff team. Phipps completed a lowly 47.2 percent of his passes during the '72 season.



In the AFC Championship Game, the Dolphins had to overcome a 10-7 third-quarter deficit to beat the Steelers.



In the Super Bowl, the Dolphins faced the Redskins. Washington's quarterback? Billy Kilmer, who was 2-4 in the playoffs in his career. Coach George Allen's offense was pretty one-dimensional. Kilmer did go to the Pro Bowl that season, but the Redskins' offense finished 17th in the league in passing. Kilmer couldn't beat Miami.



So, the undefeated '72 Dolphins were great, yes. But best ever? No way. If they go undefeated and go all the way, the 2007 New England Patriots will claim that title.
