People were shocked when Clayton all of a sudden picked the patriots to go 10-6 and for the steelers to win the Super Bowl. Personally, I expect to see a lot more of this from other writers. The patriots were almost consensus Super Bowl favorites with Seymour. Now patriots have removed one of their best players from the team to be replaced by some backup (Wright or Green). We shouldn't be shocked if analysts actually think that Seymour would have been impact player for the patriots in 2009 and that we will feel his loss by losing more games than we would have with him here. It is not unreasonable to believe that Seymour might have made the difference in a playoff game or in the Super Bowl. We believe! We drink the kool-aid! We understand that even if Seymour is gone and a couple of key plays go down to injury, that we will still win the Super Bowl! However, you should be prepared for the writers and analysts who made the patriots favorites just weeks ago might just change their minds.
