Honest opinion?

Reconsituted garbage that I think Tony Hipchest and myself have covered in our previous couple of posts on this forum.

More tedious BS about the Patriots having to concede the 'moral high ground' - which they have never actually claimed to own in the first place.

The SuperBowl introductions the Patriots used has even come in for some abuse - Banks probably doesn't like the Patriots very much - and thats fine.

Heres a quick quote, to show you what I have already stated.

But I'll tell you this: I sure am sick of hearing the Patriots portrayed as the sole NFL team with principles and integrity, while their 31 competitors are depicted as heartless mercenaries who'd employ, say, Mel Gibson if he could run a 4.3 40 and play press coverage. (He definitely knows how to backpedal.)
Banks is part of the media who im sure bleats unendingly about the Patriots high-character , low talent, hard triers - its a myth created by people like Banks because they can't explain how the Patriots keep winning.
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.
