[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Like I wrote before, it's a rebuilding year. : Your Quotes: "For me, it is too close to call, but I would love a Pats win. It would make them one of the last remainining winning teams of those that were in the play-offs last year." "...I think it is a toss up . I want the Pats to win, but I don't think it is a foregone conclusion . Great predictions, you didn't choose anybody to win and you predicted Sanchez would have a bad game. I guess you'd come in here no matter who won and tell us you knew what would happen. You have more in common with Griswold than I do. You both think you know everything about football and can predict the future. If you have the ability to know who will win every game than don't waste your time bragging here, go get rich in Vegas. I don't know the outcomes of games, I make my guesses, often I'm right but not always. I'm not amazed when I get a prediction right or wrong because games are too unpredictable for anyone to know what will happen for sure. I said I thought the Pats would win, but games in the division are unpredictable and are decided by emotion as much as talent. Your right, didicated fans don't need to wear blinkers, I'm not questioning whether your a fan or even whether you know the game of football, but to tell me you knew the outcome...No you didn't. Your only fooling yourself if you believe that.

I guess you didn't read my comments from the late PRESEASON...you now...as I referenced in my first post. If I could find them from that long ago, I would post them for you. But my available history only goes back a few days.
After they way they plastered Cincy in the first half, did I hedge a little? Yeah, I did. In comparison, about 90% of the posters here had the Pats winning, and about half of those had them winning handily. If you read my late pre-season post, I wrote that they would lose because of a weak DL, a weak OL and a weak running game (back to the OL). I wrote they would keep the D on the field too long and as a result the D would get tired. I wrote that the weak pass rush would result in the DBs getting burned, especially as the game wore on and they tired. I wrote that the OL would not run block well, forcing the O to become one-dimensional. That's pretty much what happened, as you likely noticed.
By the way, when I was part of an office pool I usually finished first, second or third from week-to-week, year after year, out of about 12 people. The person who picked the w-L outcomes most accurately, with the MNF point total as the tie-breaker, won.
But YOU CONTINUE TO MISS THE MAIN POINT MY THREAD, that homers calling people out and shouting them down because they disagree with said homer's ridiculously rose-tinted homer predictions, the kind that make the fan base look silly. Observe here tonight what is happening at this board, where Pats fans are turning on other Pats fans that dare question this teams 2010 fortunes. It's juvenille.
