FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — This is the greatest team of all time? This is the team that’s going to have its team photo bronzed for posterity? The team that’s supposed to make us forget about all those other great teams: the ’72 Miami Dolphins, the ’27 New York Yankees, the ’01 Wilbon and Kornheiser?
The short answer is yes. The longer answer is that the 2007 New England Patriots are one game and one victory from the kind of perfection that no team, including those undefeated Dolphins of 35 seasons ago, has ever experienced. Win Super Bowl XLII — and they will — and the Patriots will have no peer, no point of comparison. <A href="http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/columns/story?columnist=wojciechowski_gene&id=3206063&sportCat=nfl" onmouseover="statusIn(‘Woopig.net’);return true" onmouseout="statusOut();" style="color: #cc0000" target="_top">[read more]</A>
