Just looking at the scoreboards this weekend and seeing Chi 40 Buff 7 & Jax 41 Jets 0 I just have to ask the question are we in one of the weakest divisions in football, just feasting on our weak sisters, and going to get pasted come end of the season??? Now I know the Patriots traditionally dont blow anyone else away; but is there any cause for concern that we have kind of eeked out wins versus Buffy and the Jesters and while the fish weren't real close in the whole second half; it was still a 1 touchdown game for most of the game. Meanwhile teams like chicago and jacksonville are killing these guys. Early on we have had a lot of unwarranted negativism in the forum; so I dont want to go there; the Patriots are traditionally a better second half team so I think they will only get stronger. But just considering the state of competitiveness in the AFCE ------- ----------- is it a bad thing for us to be playing such tight games against 'lackluster competition'; would the Patriots be better served come playoff time to have faced stronger teams within the AFCE- even if that means we had another loss within AFCE right now instead of 4-1 and running away with it?
