In response to coolade2's comment:
After calmly explaining to jintsfan after week 6 (3-3) why NE was a top 5 team by way of flukey last minute losses by total of 4 points, along with Brady being Brady , and an improving defense.
Well it took until week 12 to be acknowledged by ESPN... But there it is, jints and watch out Houston and Baltimore, here come the 2012 patriots...
Interesting, but I don't care about rankings much. This team is as good as any in the league and is trending up. That's all I care about every year.
The media hates to give NE credit as we know so there is no point in wondering why. We know why.
They spent the first 10 weeks overly-praising every top flight AFC team, but NE. They ignored that the replacement refs and the incorrect FG call in Balt was WHY Balt won, too.
Denver, Balt, Houston, Pitt, Indy, etc are all teams that are apparently superior to NE even though it's really not the case on paper or how it appears on Sundays.
I think you'd be hard pressed to find even a casual fan who thinks Indy is better than the Pats this year, but imagining these fantasies fuels you for the coming day, have at it.
That said, I am not surprised that you can conjure up mountains in the everglades.
