    Just What BB Expected

    I think BB was telling the truth when he said it was what he expected.
    He spends all week lauding the next opponent.
    I think he really believes it.

    We all know about Any Given Sunday. Bill takes that to heart.
    It's just that, on most Sundays, they haven't been coming near the Patriots.
    That doesn't mean BB was wrong to think Cleveland ... Dallas ... Indy ... and each of the others ... COULD.
    It's just that usually they don't.
    Eagles almost did.
    Just as he knew they were capable of doing.

    Sure going to be easier to hammer that into the players now!

    I think the grades were fair given the performance. The Patriots need to step things up. I think this is a wakeup call game. They need to be ready for the Ravens.

    BB will never admit this, he never admits anything. The Eagles game is exactly what BB wanted and at the perfect time. His constant lauding of opponents can often be filtered by the players as the team reels off success after success. He needed a game like this to get the players' attention, particularly against a team that had been struggling. Now he's got their attention and can hammer home the idea that every opponent will be ready for the Patriots for the rest of the season. Perfect timing.
