Default Fear the Patsies

After this weekend I came to realize that of all the good teams in the AFC Playoffs still there is one team that should be feared. Not because of their stiffling defense or the high potent offense but because of who they are and what they've accomplished in the last 5 years..

And I hate to say it...but the team that people should be worried about..

The New England Patriots!

Of course better them to win it all then the ratbirds! or the suckhawks!

Some people will tell you that the Patriots were due to be 'washed up' this year after losing their top 2 WR's, a big play OLB and a couple of other 'depth players'.

Thats a case of wishful thinking, people believing something because they want it to be true, rather than applying any serious logic.

The Patriots are designed to have the best depth throughout the 53 in the NFL - its why people accuse them of being cheap when negotiating with marquee FA's - the money is spread as evenly as possible with a couple of outstanding exceptions.

Give me Brady and Belichick over any combo in the league - with those two you have a punchers chance in any contest.

Add in a stifling D, a fresh pair of RB's and a WR corps playing above itself and you have a big playoff threat....to anyone...even the San Diego Chargers - who have hardly been posteason regulars recently.

Stlrstruck gets it.

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.

Good win last night LITP!!!

I have to admit I was cheering for them...(Mainly because I feel the Jets were undeserving of a playoff slot)
But to be totally honest...I dont see you beating the Chargers....and If Indy shows the defense they showed saturday...they will be formidable also. But If the Pats can knock off those two teams ...then NOONE will be able to second guess the Pats worth and desire!!
Good luck...I know this is cool for you and to be honest I miss that playoff rush.

Thanks man.

As awesome as San Diego have been this year they have to obvious potential weak-spots - a QB with no playoff experience and in his first year as starter, and a coach who has a poor postseason reputation.

QB and coach - two of the most important areas, I think.

LT could play the game of his life and take the game away from us almost single handed, he's that type of player without a doubt, but I wouldnt take any other D in the league if I knew I had to stop him.

In all honesty I think alot of what you seen from the Colts saturday was down to KC's general ineptness - there is no way KC's vaunted O-Line should have been bullied like that - against such a lightweight unit.

I think Baltimore/Indy will be a great contest, I give the Ravens the slight edge.

I can't wait till Brady sparins an ankle, and your stuck with Testeverde and Belichek, just ask Browns fans how that worked out.

The offensive coordinator for KC should be fired....and I agree that Indys defensive showing on saturday was not typical of what I have seen the rest of the year.

I agree...KC's offense was pitiful!

Actually, Cassel could probably be starting for most of the rest of the teams in the league.

If Belichick can pull it off THIS year, then his status goes off the charts.

Yeah I agree, if Belichek wins it all, this guarantee's a first ballot HOF for him and Brady.
