In Response to Media Hates the Pats
[QUOTE]I find the things I hear in the media absolutely incredible when these so called experts talk about the Pats. When they beat Tenn. all I heard was that the Pats were, once again, running up the score on a coach that was a goody-goody. I heard this comment consistently 2 years ago. Funny, I never heard any comments about all of the lopsided scores this year by other teams, especially not about the Colts score against St. Louis. Also, I keep hearing how the Colts and Manning are unbelievable this year but I also just heard that the Pats have not played anybody. Do these "experts" look at anything? The Colts won-loss numbers of the teams they played so far is 11-26, the Pats 20-25 and "we" have not played anybody! By the way, the Minn. team was already picked for the SB and the won-loss of opponents is 17-28. Bill B. does not give these experts anything so they really hate him! They have also turned the rest of the country into Pats haters although most Pats haters are just plain jealous! The Pats are the best team of the century but one would never know this listening to these bunch of clowns!

I never heard anything about the running up of the score. Someone did point out a couple of articles to me, but nothing in broadcasts. If something was mentioned, did they actually say the pats ran up the score or was it a question asked for discussion? And if the latter, did anyone actually say they were and if so who?
As to the comparison of the pats titans game 59-0 to the colts rams 42-6, there are a number of differences 1. the point differential is 23 points (3+ td's) so that is substantially different, and yet I didn't think the pats ran up the score. 2. This game was actually no different than the pats bucs game. In that game, Brady was in until the pats went up 35-7. In the colt rams game Manning was in until the colts went up 35-6. The final score was on a 30 yd stretch play (not intended to gain big yards) by our 3rd or 4th string running back and handed to him by our back up qb.
As for the colts being good. They are undefeated. The pats have lost 2. The colts did come back and beat Miami in Miami and only had the ball 15 minutes. They also beat SB runner up AZ handily in AZ. Other than that a very weak schedule, I agree. On the other hand, who have the pats beaten - Buffalo (through either good fortune or opponent stupidity or both); ATL @ home, Balt @ home (on a current 3 game losing streak), Tenn, and TB. I don't think that the pats wins can be seen as any better than the colts wins. And btw, I don't know if themedia is praising the colts as much as Manning and those are 2 different things.
