Its just a bug bear of mine - getting a players name wrong (and Seymour gets this worse than most) when its already there in the title..even the OP couldn't manage to spell it correctly two consecutive posts
Anyhow, I agree that the combined losses will definitely hurt - we will lose performance, that is absolutely guaranteed.... I just hope we can scheme and play well enough in other areas to counteract thise two losses.
Another poster PM'ed me on this subject before the thread went up and I totally agreed that those losses would hurt.
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.
