Patriots Patriots Patriots

Well, how is this for a season so far? I must say this is quite interesting to say the least.

The Patriots, who have been condemned and ridiculed by fans of other teams as a team who was “9 points from being the Bills of the 2000s”, have been pretty much pounding every team they play.

Why? I think that is the question, why are they doing this?

Well, the whole Patriots organization has been pretty tight lipped about pretty much anything, all the time, since Bill Belichick took over as head coach, so they don’t give us much to really use to speculate on their thoughts.

Then the cheating scandal earlier this year, while I do not approve of it, I also don’t think it was really that big of a deal either. The likliehood that they were able to ever use any of the info from those tapes during the same game they taped the stuff is so highly unlikely, that it is just not worth thinking about.

I think the most telling statement made by anyone on the patriots came from one of my favorite players, Tedy Bruschi, who has been one of my favorite players since he came on board the team and started playing back in 1999.

“If someone questions your integrity, someone questions who you are and someone questions the organization you’ve been a part of ever since you walked into the league, would it upset you?” linebacker Tedy Bruschi said. “So, yes, it does upset me. If they want to keep saying those things, maybe we just need to play a little bit harder.”

So what does that tell me? It tells me that the Pats hear what is said out there, they hear what people talk about at the water cooler, and they hear what is said on sports message boards around the internet. No, this doesan’t mean they are checking them all out, but it means they know, and it inspires them to prove people wrong.

They want to be the dominant team, they want to prove everyone that they can be the big bad guys and dominate their opponants instead of just squeeking by each game.

As a fan, I am loving it, you see offensive fireworks, and you see key defensive plays.

and to all those who are complaining about the Patriots running up the score, sorry, but this isn’t Little League where everyone gets a trophy and a pizza party after the game, this is a professional league where players are paid to play and their pay is based on how well they perform. Would you condemn a consultant for not taking on all the work they can and earn the most they can? No different, they are paid to play the game and that is what they are doing, you don’t like they scoring, then stop them from scoring.
