Re: What to Do - Root For Pats or Bengals?
Another masterful demonstration by the Patriots - but the Bengals were handicapped by the loss of so many LBers its hard not to feel a little sorry for them.
Its should be remember that this 4-0 start was achieved without the likes of Richard Seymour and Rodney Harrison - its comforting to know that my team won't fold the minute a couple of starters fail to take the field - and all this without the starting RB too.
Next stop : Cleveland.
For those who wanted the Patriots to win (whatever the reason) congratulations - you backed a winner (50% on the weekend isn;t bad)
And for those who didn't - I admire your optimism.
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.
