It's a bit hard to compare the Patriots to those other teams because they're so different. They're probably either number one or number five, depending on how you look at it.
I'm tempted to put them at number one. They may lack the brilliant individual performers (although New England's players deserve far more credit than they get), but their schemes, their creativity and their game plans are farther ahead of the rest of the league than any of the other great teams ever were.* Watching the Patriots is like seeing a glimpse of what NFL football will be like a few years down the road.
* Packer fans might argue this one.
