My bottom line was that ,despite all the upheavels of the offseason, you came out week1 and got it done - a slight over-reaction with Willie Parker I reckon...again just my opinion.

Well, a couple observations from the "inside".

Plex was a loser from the time he stood up w/o being tackled and spiked the ball away..I always figured him to be an underachiever, and when the Steelers cut him loose, I think they sent 2 messages A) He's not a team player and, B) We need his big salary gone so we can pay Hines Ward. I still don't see what all the controversy over Ward was about, except maybe the fact that the Steelers practically never have anybody sit out and we aren't used to it as fans.

As for Willie, in his last 2 games he's rushed 41 times for 363 yards (averaging nearly 9 YAC), with 102 of those coming against an excellent Buffalo defense who desperately needed to win to make the playoffs. After watching him in camp, it was pretty obvious he was for real.

I'm also not sure why some people were ready to jump off the nearest bridge based on Ben's preseason performance...most of us realized it meant almost nothing. He worked hard in the offseason, and all the kid has ever done is win.

The only real concern I had was the right side of the OLine, and that was answered pretty early on in preseason. We are a better team then we were last year, more experienced at QB, just as dangerous defensively, with more weapons on offense than last year (Speed kills, and Wilson and Parker both bring a ton of it).

Simply stated since the start of 2004 the Pats and Steelers are 34-4 combined and two of those losses came against each other.

A lot of the guys who are fans from other teams are pretty cool guys. Living, Dirty, Hardwork. They bring some good insight with them.

Hey Lloyd,

Thanks for sharing your 'thoughts' with us - I put the word 'thoughts' in inverted comma's because despite knowing that potatos have eyes and corn have ears, I still find it remarkable that ANY vegetable can have a consciousnness!!

I also presume that your name is Lloyd and that every since school you have been hearing the phrase that you have now taken as your handle on here....

Good job the rest of the posters on here dont share your penchant for childish, inane
scribblings.

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.

Maybe Im the only one, but in this particular thread, I didnt think it was meant to come on in a sarcastic way; but rather just an observation of the way an NFL season tends to go.. please enlighten me past..or maybe us..
