I have not seen anything here but complaints about Mercury's comments but I caught a replay of an interview with him today, and was blind-sided by how much sense the guy made. For one thing he pointed out something that is often overlooked about the tough games the Pats have won. His point wasn't about how vulnerable they looked. It was about how much character it showed to win those close games. He also pointed out that the Pats' job is tougher than the Dolphins' job in 1972. He said that the Dolphins had little pressure on them because as the season progressed nobody thought they could do it. They even went into the SB as underdogs. I had forgotten that. How weird is that? In contrast he said that the Pats were called out early in the year by some people to go all the way with a perfect record, and that type of pressure would be horrible to endure compared to what the Dolphins endured. Now that I think about it, yeh, it did start early and often. This has been very difficult for the team, I am sure. Nothing but props from Mercury for the Pats though. He also skewered his own team - the current team - and because the interview was old, he predicted that the Pats would bury them in their rematch. I like a guy who is straight forward about his own team. That is called "negative" in some unrealistic circles, but don't you think it's refreshing to hear the truth? He spoke the truth and didn't even flinch. He also said it would be nice to have somebody else on the mountain top with the Dolphins who can speak their undefeated language. This surprised me because I had gathered that Morris was nothing but a jealous pissant from comments I've seen here. It did not sound like it. He also said that it's a myth that they get together to do champagne. They don't do that. I thought it was a cool story, but guys do live in other cities or states, right? It's just a story. He was not the Mercury Morris that I thought he was going to be. He did admit to being a jokester and being outrageous in order to have fun, and I am wondering if this contributed to his bad image around here? He is really the first guy that put forth the idea that the Pats have endured far more pressure than his team did. He said it. He seems to not be afraid of the truth even if the truth makes the Pats look bigger than his own team.
