Buffalo News Changes put Pats to the test "Few teams in NFL history deal with and overcome adversity like the Patriots. Take last season, for instance. Due to a severe rash of injuries, they went through a post-merger record 45 different starters, including 13 in the secondary. And yet they still captured their third consecutive AFC East title and fourth in five years. They won a playoff game and almost reached the AFC Championship Game for the third year in a row." http://www.buffalonews.com/editorial/20060909/1061320.asp This article should have been written by a Boston Scribe but then many of them are too busy knocking the team. This one paragraph above tells any sane person that "LUCK", which many other Fans claim is the only real reason the Pat's are successful, is anything but good too us.
