http://www.jaguars.com/news/article.aspx?id=6434 Andy from Palm Coast, FL: I was wondering where you stand on this new debate that the Patriots are running up too many points. My opinion is that the job of the offense is to move the ball down the field in the most efficient way and get it into the end zone. If you don't, you have failed your task. What do the critics want the Pats to do, take a knee once they are ahead by a certain number of points? Maybe we should just end the game at that point. Or better yet, give the opposing team the same points the Patriots get on each score. Vic: Why werenât there complaints in 2004 when the Colts were running up the score on teams? During one stretch, the Colts scored 49, 41, 41 and 51 points in consecutive games. They scored more than 40 points six times that season before their season ended when they scored only three points against New England in the AFC title game. Peyton Manning set a record with 49 touchdown passes that season and it was obvious he was going for the record at the expense of his opponentsâ dignity late in games. I remember watching a 41-9 win over Detroit on Thanksgiving Day and thinking to myself, âThose poor Lions,â yet, I donât remember reading one word of criticism that the Colts were running up scores. In fact, it seemed as though most media and fans were cheering Manningâs every touchdown pass as he closed on the record. So why isnât it that way for Tom Brady and the Patriots? Iâd rather they not run up the score because I donât find blowouts the least bit entertaining and statistics mean very little to me, but whatâs good for one should be good for everyone, right? I can tell you this, thatâs why Bill Belichick is doing this. He wants it all; the Super Bowls, the stats, the records, everything. When the Patriotsâ run is complete, and it will end some day, Belichick wants there to be no doubt who the best team, the best quarterback and the best coach are.
