...just one thought. I don't want to overburden my mind with thoughtS since this is a big game.....and I'm old, It occurred to me that Monday night is going to be a bit chilly. Nothing much by NE standards, just in the low 30's, high 20's. Still I seem to recall that Senor Franchize isn't exactly in love with our weather. Wasn't the first time he played in the real cold the last time he played in Foxboro? No one has made mention of it, but Sanchez only played 2 other games besides that, in the cold weather. The first was against a Bengal team who was taking the day off, and that same hapless Bengal team in the Playoffs, where IIRC, he wasn't much of a factor in the win. So while the weather is "supposed" to be clear, we won't know about the wind until that day. I don't think the "sanchize" likes the cold, and he CERTAINLY doesn't have Tom's experience with bad weather. It might not be much, but its something I haven't heard much about this week....and its something. BTW- I can't help but notice that there are some OTHER people on this board and in the media, who are NOW lauding, yours truly's favorite CB. Sorry but I just couldn't stop myself.
