I loathe NE, Brady, and BB... but put that in perspective jealousy of the have nots. It isn't personal, and its grudgingly because of the success over the past decade or so. Same stuff I felt for Elway once upon a time.
As a fan of football, i was happy for Elway to get his rings etc... although I am not sure I can ever really like Elway and the Broncos because of the years the Hawks were in their division... but when its all said and done, I am happy I had so much to "hate" and there was something great I witnessed in the game of football.
I look back and say that about Montana, Rice, Craig, and all those great 49er's as well... but back then, the fans weren't delusional. I don't think NE fans are delusional today either, maybe in 20 years after the Brady, BB, era. Maybe in 20 years I will have the same delusion because of this Hawks team.
