    This guy nails the Pats workmanlike approach to the game. This is the center of what makes the team successful:

    I love these lines:

    We see 28-6, they see 286 things they could have done better.

    and

    The Pats aren't content unless they're holding the Lombardi Trophy, and even then you have to wonder how long the euphoria lasts. They're not given to savoring lesser victories, especially, one presumes, those over teams outside their class.

    That was a really good article, good find. Though I think it is a sign of things to come about the Patriot Praise. We are no longer going to be the "other team", the Pats are back in the "elite" teams and the media is about to tell us why. For better or worse.

    I know what you mean. I wish that they would just leave us the HELL ALONE!! :mad: I like it when we are under the radar.
    Those two faced bastards. If we lose next week, I'll bet they will say something different.

    If I had a dollar for every time I confused you and BB, I would have much more time to post on this board.

    These two quotes would make great sigs for those who use them.

    One for those who get it:

    "What the New England Patriots have over everyone else is the understanding that they're a perpetual work in progress."

    And another for NEM and all those who can't understand or appreciate why they will never be what they want them to be:

    "They execute simple, low-risk plays with assembly-line efficiency. They're content to put the square peg in the square hole time and again, whimsy rarely leading them to see if the circle fits instead."

    The difference between NEM and BB is the NFL HC believes in the game plans based on his understanding of his teams strengths and weaknesses as well as those of the opponents, and sees improving execution within them as the ever present goal. NEM doesn't spend much time rationally evaluating player execution, preferring in his position as a MB OC instead to criticize the play calling and game planning (that doesn't feature the plays he believes in hindsight or merely due to pre-existing personal preference should have been featured or at least "tried" and would have been executed to perfection by players who always execute in his fantasy game plans). :D

    Wow, there's so many good quotes in there:

    That's one of the best descriptions of this team that I've ever read. I wish we had writer's like that.
