    I love how all the sudden Jax is a dangerous team. It's the same team (minus Marcus Stroud) that we pasted last year in Jax with a playoff berth on the line. They've shown they can play Indy tough, but they're 0-2 against Indy this year. I give them roughly a 0% chance of winning in Indy or in NE.

    Their quarterback is serviceable at best, not championship caliber.

    Don't under estimate Jaksonville guys. Excellent running game, physical defense, and a QB that doesn't make mistakes. Leftwich was the QB last time around.

    As for the poll, the AFC playoffs are going to be tough. SD is playing very well, and Indy is always a threat. Ideally I'd like to see a SD/JAQ 1st round playoff so that one team knocks the other out.

    Here's one: Which network is most likely to start the next meaningless poll about the Patriots? Everyone's trying to get some of that win mojo!

    We played them last year in Jax, beat them handily, with Garrard as QB. They have the same team this year, except Marcus Stroud is out for the year.

    This year, it's in NE, and we're much much better. They don't worry me.

    No David Garrard (he fumbled in the last minute to preserve the victory)was the QB in last year game. Jacksonville has the 25 raked pass defense witch doesn't bold well for them also.

    We beat them 24-21 last year in Jax. I remember watching that game, and nobody would characterize that game as "winning handily".

    Jones-Drew ran wild (Tayor didn't play) and Garrard had a decent game, though nothing spectacular.

    MJD didn't run wild. He had a fluke 74 yard touchdown (he fell down when he ran into his own man, the Patriots thought he was down by contact), got up and ran past the defenders who stopped before the whistle. Otherwise, he had 57 yards on 18 carries (3.1 ypc). They kept it close with good defense and a couple fluke plays.

    Exactly, everyone thought he was down, but he wasn't. Without that one carry, his yardage totals weren't impressive at all.

    If the weather that game is like it was vs. the Jets then think again.

    Who here honestly thinks Jack "I make Herm Edwards look like a daredevil" Del Rio will outcoach Belichick?

    Enough with the talk of the Jags.

    As to your statement "SD is playing very well" i don't agree, are they winning yes but they have only one threat LT and if BB schemes to take him away then they are the same divided team they were before their coach discovered that running the football is actually in the play book. They will not be real contenders only pretenders.

    "My opinion that Brady has apparently topped out is based on his subpar play this year. Spare me the "new receivers" chant." -- PF1996

    "Sorry, but this dynasty that never really was is dead. Brady isn't getting any better." -- PF1996

    "Bill was "grinning from ear to ear" because the Pats pulled out a win despite the terrible play of the so called "greatest QB ever". I guess we can now finally put that fairy-tale in the same trashcan as the one about Santa." PF1996, Dec. 16, 2007.

    Great sig Sooner Patriot, PF 1996 shows hes just as ignorant about football as he is on the political forum. .

    Ignore stupidity.This person obviously doesn't know anything about football.The Jags are a very good team.How ever the Pats match up very well against them.We beat them with Caldwell last year.The Pats now have Moss,Welker,Stallworth & Gaffney.Wake up & smell the roses.NE will do damage in the playoffs.It will be very interesting if the Jags got to play the Colts for a 3rd time in the divisional round of the playoffs.The Pats,Jags & Chargers are Colt fans worst nightmare.They can't run or hide.The Colts will just have to take their buttkicking like men.

    Re: CBS Poll : Which AFC team is likely to be able to beat the Pats?

    Did you watch the game, or are u just looking at the stats? MJD had a flukey long run where the Pats thought he was down. Other than that, he did nothing.

    The Pats contolled that game. They led wire to wire. I don't remember being nervous at all during that game.
