ESPN...those letters make me laugh.
I have no probelm with people predicting, or even pulling, against the Patriots.
I'd be interested in why you thought the Patriots might win more than 10 games (they won 12 last year and most people would say they have gotten better this year) but then fail to win the SB - picking against one team is pretty safe.
Who do you think will win it all?
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.
