First, a caveat: maybe that gang, Shula and the rest of 'em, are flapping their gums as much as 2007 when the Pats went 16-0. I would not be as attuned to it because it's the Saints and Colts making the run, not the Pats. But are they out there talking %$#@! this year at all? It sure seems like they're being quiet. Maybe the Pats having a perfect regular season changed things for them and they'll only get vocal in the playoffs. Or did the media just seek them out more in 2007 because it was the Pats, and the Pats are the tail wagging the NFL dog?
