    Could this get any easier?

    I mean, seriously? The planets are aligned and the tomato cans are in place. The fraudulent Houston Texans are the only team standing between the New England Patriots and a trip to the AFC Championship game. All the Patriots have to do is beat the terrible Texans. One week from today. At Gillette Stadium.
    Pass Go and collect $200. The Patriots are in the AFC title game

    He can't help himself. He fancies that he's some omnipotent sports writer, but he's just another opportunistic hack ala Borges & Felger.

    Heck, one could be forgiven for thinking that he writes this stuff IN ORDER to help opposing teams. He's like that.

    Could he be any more of a clueless a-hole? Carl Everett was right.

    What the heck does he gain from this?

    Honestly the article is far from objective journalism and just fires up the other team. What an unprofessional piece of work.

    Now not saying I disagree with him but I certainly don't want my opinion in the Boston Globe!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have lost all respect for him.

    Exactly.

    Double TE, I appreciate you including a link for attribution, but I am going to break the rules here a bit and erase the link in your post so that no one gives any more clicks to that shallow delinquent. If anyone wants to know what Harpo Marx wrote please use the link Ray Clay provided.

    How is this relevant? None of this extra BS won't mean anything when the Pats & Texans take the field on Sunday.

    re: fans soDan Shaumething to post about ...UGH

    I'm just curious what research has been performed that indicated that we want media people who bash our teams during the regular season and go all over the top homer during the post season (or continuing their bash fest)?

    Seriously, I've never met a single fan of the Patriots who actually liked more than a few people in the sports media.

    "What the heck does he gain from this?"

    Seriously? Do you know what Skip Bayless, Lindsay Lohan, Donald Trump or the clown that did the "Leave Brittany Spears Alone" youtube vid "gain"?

    Money and attention. That's all.

    If the Texans need something from Larry Fine to motivate them, then the Patriots should start game planning for the AFCCG right now.

    re: fans soDan Shaumething to post about ...UGH

    I can't speak to any research, but he's going "all over the top homer" for the Texans game to set up his next bash fest column.

    If the Patriots win, it's because their opponent was terrible. And if they lose in the AFCCG, it will because they finally had to face a "real" team. If the Patriots lose to the Texans, then it will be due to Belichick's arrogance in overlooking an opponent.

    Eh, can a COLUMNIST really provide "bulletin board material," when the actual TEAM is busy rattling off respect?

    Besides, if Houston wants to feel disrespected, all they have to do is take a look at the Vegas line.

    Is he a glory hound? Perhaps. He is always so soft spoken and stupid sounding on all the radio and TV shows. I agree that the Texans should already be motivated but why add fuel to the fire. Especially to JJ Watt!!! Last thing I want is for Houston to come out fired up and draw penalties of ROUGHING THE PASSER and hurt the Pats SB chances. I get it..one simple article from a simpleton. But in the world of Twitter and Facebook it will be everywhere now!!! I bet the Pats coaching staff HATES seeing it.

    Looks like some of you forget that bulletin board material can only come from the opposing TEAM and not from opposing media.

    Don't let it happen again.....K?:cool:

    Carl Everett, as RayClay mentioned. Psycho who played for the Sox awhile back.

    The guy didn't believe in dinosaurs, but he nailed it w/that nickname.
