...But there's a "nasty" in "dynasty"

Bill Belichick is the key ingredient to the Patriots' success over the past decade and it's his unwillingness to budge from his coaching and managerial blueprint that has New England atop the NFL once again this year.

Credit the O-line, running game

While Tom Brady deserves much of the credit, New England's offensive line and running game have helped the 2010 Patriots' offense reach new heights.

Doing the right thing

With his youngest team yet, Bill Belichick has the Patriots playing the best football in the NFL and when it's all said and done, this year's team could rival the 2007 team that went 18-1.

Patriots are peerless

Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are in a class of their own atop the NFL.

Belichick the mastermind

Bill Belichick remains a step ahead of the rest of the NFL and the 2010 Patriots are proof. The star power is nowhere to be found but the wins keep piling up.

George Young's lesson

Bill Belichick learned under former New York Giants general manager George Young that teams win championships as often as stars do.

Parity reduces disparity

Star quarterbacks and shrewd front office decisions helped the AFC win six out of 10 Super Bowls, but this season's overall parity has reduced the AFC's dominance over the NFC.

Give Moss a break

Great players, like Randy, need to dog it sometimes. That's price of all that talent.

Hate not essential to rivalry

The Colts and Patriots already have a terrific rivalry, not because they hate each other but because they divvied up history together.

A media rivalry

There's no hate between the Colts and the Patriots because it's not really a rivalry.

Players are pros

"Hate" or "respect" as the basis for a football rivalry is a matter for fans and the media.

Great QBs, not a rivalry

After Brady and Manning decline and then retire this so-called rivalry will fade and fizzle.

Respect tackles hate

Today a great rivalry has to have an air of respect, and it's for the best.

Too much love

A rivalry really needs to be based more on the dislike for one another than the mutual respect teams have.

Bet on Brady

For how successful he has been in his career, this decision is an easy one. I'd take Tom Brady.

Not Drew Brees

Drew Brees is a good quarterback, and has been great so far this season, but his qualifications aren't nearly as good as Brady, Ben or Peyton.

By Sean Moroney | October 19, 2009; 10:46 AM ET | Comments (4)

Peyton's in First Place

With one game to win, I'd rather have Manning than any other QB in the league.

By Tim McHale | October 19, 2009; 10:17 AM ET | Comments (0)

Brady No More

This whole business of dating starlets, dumping pregnant starlets and marrying supermodels can't help but be a drain on a quarterback's resources.

By Sean McCann | October 19, 2009; 09:58 AM ET | Comments (1)

Manning Still the Man

What has separated Manning from Brees this season is consistency.

By Joe Baker | October 19, 2009; 08:55 AM ET | Comments (0)

Brees at the Top

Drew is without question the best quarterback in the league. If it takes a few more wins for the country to realize that, so be it.

By David Cariello | October 19, 2009; 08:50 AM ET | Comments (1)

What About Big Ben?

The reasons I'd take Ben Roethlisberger is his ability to keep plays alive, his fearless attitude and his comeback capabilities.

Manning's the Man

Peyton Manning may never model men's underwear or date Jessica Simpson, but he knows how to read defenses, connect with his receivers and win games.

Golden Brady

The golden child of the present-day NFL, Brady has proved that he can always be counted on to lead his team.

There's a Bunch, but One Brady

Only Matt Millen wouldn't pick Brady number one.

Brady's Still the Best

All things being equal, if I have Tom Brady, I'm taking the Lombardi Trophy home.
