and now the anti draft grade article. everybody gets an A!:
88 out of 100. thats pretty impressive.
I got 89.
I mean...8 or 9.
I thought the Steelers had a solid, unspectacular draft - the kind that doesn't always sit too well with the guys who write draft analysis articles.
The Patriots often suffer from the same critcism.
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.
