    Finally, someone said it! So true! After the Giants game all the haters were out in full force. The Pats were considered an after thought in terms of competing for the AFC let alone the SB. It was all about GB, NO, Pittsburgh and the Ravens. No way the Pats could compete with those teams right?Now everyone is on the bandwagon.:rolleyes: Regardless if they win or lose on Sunday, I love how Deion called them out on it now!

    Its not about Vegas but the public perception, IMO! The Pats have been favored in every game, but they were not considered legit threats in the playoff picture.

    Finally the return of "us against the world".

    I, for one, missed it.

    No Jersey Selected

    Linkopotamus.

    A vintage call from past Super Bowl years, nicely played.

    Not really...

    The Pats were practically picked to win the Superbowl with a revamped defense to compliment the offense, then we realized defense sucked, THEN they went under the radar after the back to back losses.

    There is an important distinction that needs to be made between 'disliked' and 'disrespected'.

    IMO, this team is disliked across America, but not disrespected. Fans and pundits are going to hate on us, take every opportunity to doubt us or hyperanalyze any potential flaws, but at the end of the year we are always in it to the surprise of no one.
