I'm not saying they could go 16-0 but to me they are never over-matched. IMO the Steelers could score with the best of them. Plus they have a dominate defense they can shut down the most potent offenses. So I vote the Steelers.
I would say you were pretty much over-matched in the Championship game last year.
I think you just about listed every possible way to lose your average football game ...then said 'if we didnt do this we woulda won....'....kinda obvious if you ask me.
When is a fumble not 'ill-advised'?? (Running fault)
INT's for TD's (Throwing fault)
Penalties/ Bad coaching (Preperation fault)
Yep..I think its fair to say that if you avoid all these in future you will go 16-0 on a regular basis and waltz off witht he SB too.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
