Re: Strange Power Ranking
I especially enjoyed the rant about how the Patriots 10 game playoff run is 'overhyped'.
The logic being that is they had made the playoffs in 2002 they would have been soundly beaten by Oakland - gotta love them retrospective 'what-if' predictions.
A nice job of giving Willie McGinest a bit of love - just so no-one can accuse the author of being biased.
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.
