    Unfortunately, Super Bowl trophies aren't awarded for charisma. Awesome quote by Bears LB Otis Wilson.

    FINAL TALLY: The Bears win seven charisma categories and split the eighth, in a horribly biased study. Perhaps I should try politics.

    Fortunately in real life this is a FOOTBALL contest and not a personality contest.

    That kind of openness is missing from society in general, but it's not hard to see why. Spygate is a good example of the media overblowing something to harmful proportion. Recent examples are the whole Cedric Maxwell/Larry Bird exchange and, well, the entire celebrity watching culture in general.

    Many deride Belichick and the Patriots for their closed door approach, but in today's overcovered, overexaggerated, and overhyped media era, it is the only sane and viable long-term approach.

    Only in the author's twisted mind. Because they played for the legendary franchise in NFL history, the press was disposed to portray them as charismatic instead of arrogant prick @$$holes.

    #24 Jersey

    Would we be more charasmatic if Brady mooned a camera during pre-game warm-ups?

    Given what's going on with random violence involving some from the NFL (see Sean Taylor, Pacman Jones, Darrent Williams, Ray Lewis, etc.), I find the use of this quote quite revealing. It's not transparent honesty that's missing, it's that these guys today are acting on this "honesty," and the fact that Kluck actually appreciates this "honesty" is obviously part of the problem. The term "idiot" only starts to describe this scribe.

    Compare what's going on with charity involvement from Wilfork, Warren, and other members of the team. The only time they want attention is when they'd like others to pitch in and help. Yes, I'll take the Patriot way over all those horses arses from the '85 Bears. They had a real dynasty back in the 80s, didn't they? McMahon compared to Brady? Please.

    Not to get away from the rather superserious trend developing in the thread already, but...

    Considering the giant potential humor in that column, Kluck came up considerably short--dwarflike, even. Did the aptly named Mr. Kluck chicken out? Or was it sheer laziness that prompted him to submit a column that was about as trite as a "that's what she said" joke? Can he even name eight Patriots?

    I enjoyed watching that Bears team--until the Super Bowl, of course. Perhaps I can submit my own version of the column, and get myself a writin' job.

    The Pats really need to go into the studio and record "Super Bowl Shuuffle '07".

    That should shut up the critics.

    I enjoyed watching that Bears team as well. As for replacing Kluck (who may likely turn out to be a nom de plume for Ronny Borges) go for it. He could have kept it light, and I may have overreacted, as I'm tired of the freakin' unabashed Patriot bashing that is awaiting the slightest sign of faltering by this team.

    For the love of gawd, come up with a better pen name than Kluck!!!!

    So the Bears made a stupid video and they suddenly have more personality? Who cares?

    The Patriots are possibly the best team of all time, playing the game of football inside the lines. They certainly have the most explosive offense of all time so far. Is this the best trolls can come up with these days?

    BB wear's a hoodie, he should be arrested by the fashion police! Again I ask who CARES?? Nobody that really cares about real football!

    Or wore a headband that read, "GOODELL" ? ;)

    Or wore a T-Shirt around town the night before a big game that said, "(Insert name of Opponent Here) Suck ? ;)

    all of which Jim McMahon was famous for. I for one, am glad that Tom Brady has more class than that! The Pats have their own unique personality that the media is obsessed with anyway!

    The 85 Bears and the superbowl shuffle set manhood in this country back 30 years.
