Wholeheartedly disagree. Vinatieri making the game winning FG just months after 9/11 will be the Pats most-remembered game.
And, sure, a perfect season would be remembered forever. But I think a 2-loss season with a Colts title would be remembered longer than a perfect regular season and a loss in the playoffs.
I'm sure the Colts organization would have loved to had a perfect season and SB title. But, with the team where they were in terms of health and injuries, they had a decision to make: Go for a perfect season or put themselves in the best position possible for a championship run.
