Re: Is Miami that tough or did NE and SD take them for granted?

I don't know what Miami team will be out there any given week but I do know Ronnie Brown is a beast and Chad Pennington should NEVER have been ousted as a #2 QB in NY - Clemens over pennington at #2 was a dumb decision for Mangini.
I think its a combination of a well coached team and FO teaching thier guys to play better than the talent is on paper and Parcells is doing his magic once again.
NE and SD just as well could have been using Miami as a stepping stone and counting the game against Miami as a likely win - Can't do that in the NFL anymore - You don't play hard for 60 minutes against ANY team and you will lose.
That makes this weeks matchup that much better and this game could go far as in looking ahead to the playoffs with this weeks winner having a jump up in tiebreakers regarding seeding even though its only week 6 both these teams need this game big time.
I think Chad makes them a better team, however I don't think they are contenders.
San Diego seems to be fraud, lots of hype preseason and no production - However this start is similar to 2007.
I think we fell into a classic trap game. That being said, our defense had never looked worse than in that game and the only way we can hope to be competitive with a "rookie" QB is to stretch the field with Randy, and Josh and Bill had no intentions of trying that, which baffles me.
It's fun and painful to think what Tom's presence in the NFL at this time would be - I think we, along with the Giants, would be monsters in our respective conferences.
