ESPN...those letters make me laugh.
I have no probelm with people predicting, or even pulling, against the Patriots.

I'd be interested in why you thought the Patriots might win more than 10 games (they won 12 last year and most people would say they have gotten better this year) but then fail to win the SB - picking against one team is pretty safe.

Who do you think will win it all?

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.

The Pats have to be the favorites right now. They are going to win alot of games the one thing I could see being a problem for them is their LB. It is a long season and their LB are all on the wrong side of 30 except for Thomas if I'm not mistaken about that , but their age could catch up to them come playoff time (even though they will probably have a bye).

Of course ESPN wants you to think the Patsies are the favorite going into the season. That way when they manipulate the games it will be less noticeable to the masses who have already been drinking the kool-aid all year.

Oh how I long for the good old days when the Patsies were the doormats of the league, you know, pretty much thier entire existance until ESPN became larger than life (Theres your first clue) and began to control the outcome of sports in America.

The ESPN conspiracy is alive and well, at least in my mind. lol
