10 things you need to know about the New England Patriots in2009: - Pats Pulpit
11.) The Patriots' daddies can beat up the Jets' daddies.
"Moss, Welker slow down."
It's not like Brady wants to throw to Welker every down . . . it's just that he's so wide open.
At times, this article seems to be a serious look at the 2009 version. At other times, it's a farce. Whatever though. We'll see what happens.
I thought it was a decent list, but i don't think Faulk is done yet and I doubt Brady will wait until the end of the year to speed up, but other than that, okay list...
i don't quite see Neal getting beat out like he says, but at least this writer takes some chances and isn't so conservative with his predictions like so many others.
I hope he doesn't quit his day job...
Indeed. That's a terrible list, to put it kindly.
"Whatâ€™s the best substitute for not having Ed Reed on the Patriotâ€™s roster? How about having two Ed Reeds?"
"Whatâ€™s the best substitute for not having Ed Reed on the Patriotâ€™s roster? How about having two Ed Reeds? That is what Chung and Meriweather will be considered in less than three seasons."
What kind of Fanboy wrote this list? This is a ridiculous comment.
My kind of fanboy: all wishful thinking, but so nice if it were true ...
11. The Patriots will go 19-0 and will average 400.7 points a game while holding their opponents to 2.6. Brady throws for 300 touchdowns and 27,000 yards, Maroney scores 632 rushing touchdowns, and Patrick "Chuck Norris" Chung will force 203 fumbles
Sounds, at times, like a decent analysis - but other times it's over-the-top. If Chung is even 80% of Reed, they'll be happy.
I wouldn't be blown away to see the rookie replace Neal, but I wouldn't bet on it.
A fanboy that other fanboys go to his site, view the banner ads, so he can charge the advertisers more.
In other words, a smart fanboy.*
*based on real life, not his "analysis."
Maroney would be considered to have a historic season if he could rush for 632 YARDS! [/b]
Considering the only season he hasn't rushed for 632 yards was last year when he was out by week three with a broken shoulder, I'd say you're being a bit harsh. Heck, even with that sub par season last year, he's still averaged close to 600 yards a year, plus a few through the air. Hardly as bad as you make him out to be, huh?
I like the kid and I hope he does well this year. I'll be rooting for him the whole way.
The funniest part of that article is if/when some of those bullets do come true, how many ballbags will be ranting and raving; "I knew this guy was right", "I knew it all along too, but just didn't want to look like a homer", "what a sharp football mind this guy has", "this kid is the next great writer", blah, blah, blah.
i'll take that as a compliment
It's my sincere hope/wish that this team rips the NFL a new one this year, takes no prisoners, smokes Eli and the Giants in a Super Bowl rematch and puts to bed the foolish debate of who the team of the decade really is.
Make this happen.
I think he should rename this to 10 things i dont need to know..
I hope this guy is right, but that's a heck of a prediction. Oh, and if Meriweather likes to hit so much, how come he couldnt make that one stop in the Jets OT game?
They have UNFINISHED BUSINESS! 19-0!
Yeah, but how many games is ONE GUY expected to seal in a season?
2 Ed reeds....wtf.....LMAO! Let's hope so! If they are SO fast, maybe they should be corners. Corners need speed. Safeties need awareness and play recognition. When I see that this preseason, then I'll be happy with the situation.... Hope youre right!
Oh yeah! Great Point!! By the way, he makes that tackle, we're in the playoffs!
Pretty amazing thing about football; ONE play can decide your season.
He makes that tackle, they make the playoffs and all bets are off.
Just like the Super Bowl; Manning gets sacked or Rodney breaks up that pass, they win the Super Bowl.
That is why football is my favorite sport.
