In Response to Re: Thoughts on Pats Season Record:
[QUOTE]Drunk1, I have lived out of market with the NFL Ticket for 6 years. Please do not talk down to me. While you are paying $150 to go to Kraft's games, I am watching more football than you ever will on a Sunday. I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, but you are again leaning towards troll status. If you have a son in college at age 18+, this means you are at the very least in your late 40s, which means you were born sometime in the 1960s, growing up with the 1970s Pats. And 1980s. And early 1990s. And now, here you are in 2010, a supposed season ticket holder, with this litany of complaints? How you can say Brady is not as good as he was is so beyond irratioinal, you definitley come off like a troll more so like someone who is telling the truth. Maybe Brady made poor throws because he has a surggically repared ligament in his leg, where doctors say you don't fully recover from it for 2 years? Maybe missing a full season has an effect? Maybe Bill O'Brien's first year as offensive coordinator hurt the rhythm of the offense? Maybe Matt Light, Koppen and Neal all being hurt at different times hampered the consistency of the line? Maybe the lack of a decent TE or 3rd WR option hurt Brady as it would ANY QB in this league, including Gomer Manning? Maybe Brady's 2nd best statistical season, with all of these issues, is A LOT better than your claims say it is? Brady was worse in 2002 than he was in 2009. If you actually saw him play in 2002, you'd know this. Who cares if Gerard Warren was available for some time? Maybe his price was too high, and in an unknown CBA market, when NE came calling, he realized his price was too high and took less or what the market would bear? Ever think of that? Is Damione Lewis better than Warren? I don't think so. They signed Lewis first. After a handful of top tier high priced FAs, this wasn't exactly an aggressive FA market like it normally is because of the economy and CBA issues. It's sad that you are in your 50s and I am far more intelligent than you. Sad.

rusty, guess its best to see how it plays out. right? btw, check out I Rappaports article in the herald today and Breers article in the globe today on what to watch for tonight. tekll me if they are as optimistic as you?
yes, in my 50's and a season ticket holder since the 80's.
not as smart as you but glad you drank the cool aid and feel Pats can do no wrong. But can the stats as Brady had a very p[oor year for him last year. Welker and Moss truely inflated his stats, he was off target all year, more than I ever saw of him.
Why do you lean on injurioes last year for sub par performance, but feel this year they will not have an effect? depleted depth, always a Pats strength, and inexperience could derail the season.
If you feel you are being talked down to, that is your problem. I am only telling it as I see it, and I have been seeing it over the past 18 months, including preseason the past 6 few weeks. If you think it will be same old/same old this season, I think you could be very wrong. This is truly a rebuilding effort, and I have so far been not that impressed with the youth being ready. I also saw way too many holes last year that I fear have not been plugged.
Glad your Dish Tv tells you about Calvin Pace and Terrell Suggs, but I am at Pats practice almost dailey, and I just don't see what you think you are seeing.
Does that make me a troll? I dont know, lets see if ewhite has to say. Oh yeah, he has nothing to say
