    The boneless wings I had during the game were really good. Does that count? :)

    The Pats have allowed just one sack in 120 minutes of football.

    Boneless wings are for the JV team ... real men eat the wings with the bone.

    so no ... you cannot get on the stats list with boneless JV wings.

    And seeing we have played two highly ranked Defensive teams and are missing a pro bowl lineman that's a big positive!

    ** We are one game out of 1st place.

    ** Tied for 2nd in the AFCE.

    ** Control our own destiny.

    ** Four out of nine of the last superbowl champions were either 1-1 or 0-2 after week 2.

    ** We have a hall of fame QB

    ** We have a hall of fame HC.

    ** Our team is young. The youngest it has been in years. We will see more week to week improvement out of players that are in their first or second year in the league than you will see out of someone who has been playing for 10 years.

    But I didn't pay for the wings. Does that make a difference?

    We also have a HOF WR who made one of the best catches of the year yesterday.

    I like Chung a lot and think he's going to be a good player once he settles down in coverage, but having my safety at the top in tackles is not necessarily a good thing. I remember Willie Clay used to be high in tackles each season.

    Here's a couple of more:

    - Jermaine Cunningham looks like he has what it takes to get on the field more...and keep Captain Whiff (Ninko) off the field.

    - Ghost will surely get better on longer FGs.

    - We have so much offensive talent to throw the ball to that Brady has epileptic seizures trying to decide who to throw to. The long bombs to Moss were just muscle memory.

    If we beat the Bills and then can get a tough road win down in Miami, we'll be no worse than tied for 1st in the East going into the bye.

    The last few years our secondary usually has a good share of the tackles.
    There are games where the defense is for the LB'ers to make the tackles.

    But this is a trend of the defense for at least the last 3 years or more.

    Last year the 3 to 5 top tacklers were Meriweather (52), McGowan (50), Bodden (47).
    Mayo (70) and Guyton (55) were 1 and 2 respectively.

    Also ... when we beat Buffalo next week we will be 2-1.

    If we win 2 of 3 games all the way through we will be 10-5 going into the last game ...

    which would be a very good record for having so many 1st and 2nd year players.

    finishing strong usually means great things ... starting strong usually means very little.
