Re: randle el and plaxico's career days
Yah, Plex come up huge for the Giants - I remember thinking during that game that he would be an excellent weapon for Ben in Pittsburgh.
Did't see much of the Washington game, although the hail mary catch was a good one from Randle El.
Ben may have had a career day in terms of TD's but he still threw for less yardage than either receiver caught for - a result of playing a short field against a woeful Browns team, no doubt.
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.
