The teams I've been watching this year most closely have been the Patriots and the Chargers. It seems instructive to compare the two. The Chargers came into the season with, presumably, every reason for high hopes. But they stumbled when their star, Lt, was injured and could not sustain his high level of play. The Pats, on the other hand, have sustained crucial loss after crucial loss. Who knows how they will fare in the post season, but they had every reason to write off this year and just getting to the post season seems a tremendous achievement.
Coaching fillip, and veteran leadership, two critcal elements to keeping the younger guys focused on the job - winning football games. It was a travesty that San Diego lost to Miami, good for us and an embarrassment to them.
