Please tell us you are not a Patriots fan who is upset by our margins of victory....PLEASE!
If we were to maintain our scoring pace, the Patriots have a "chance" to break the Minnesots Vikings season scoring record. This means that the Vikings must have run up the score quite a few times themselves.
Keep in mind there are several teams that barely fell short of the Vikings record and we all know they could not have been in 52-34 type games all season.
I would rather have the most dominant team EVER than a team that was the 4th or 5th most dominant team ever because their coach was nice and let up at the end to keep "honor".
If I had the personnel the Patriots have and a chance to be the most dominant team of all time, I would try my absolute hardest to be the most dominant team of all time.
ANY COACH WHO WOULDN'T DOESN'T DESERVE TO KEEP HIS JOB!
So who out there would rather have;
1. A nice coach who "maybe" could have had the most dominant team ever, but didn't want to do because he'd hurt people's feelings?
2. A coach who saw that he had perhaps the best team ever assembled and decided to try and become the best team ever and could care less about hurting peoples poor wittle feelin's?
Which is it? 1 or 2?
