    Has anyone else noticed that Michael Silver has become the Pete Prisco of Yahoo Sports. I used to enjoy his writing when he was with SI, but now he is very confrontational and biased to the point of stupidity with Yahoo Sports. If you listen to him on the WBCN pregame show, he usually comes off as a huge ass. Granted, I might be a little surley if I had to be be interviewed by Andy Gresh.

    I don't know if SI forced him to turn down his rhetoric when he was there or he is trying to be controversial because he wants to draw attention to Yahoo Sports and his pieces, but he has become almost unreadable.

    Here is his weekly bash the Pats segment from his "Morning Rush" Column today:

    Bashing the Pats for a fake spike and trying to score in the first half? Come on! You can't run up the score in the first half.

    Criticizing the Patriots for running it up when a team came back from 35-7 down in the 4th quarter this week, AND then lost the game.

    That's the textbook definition of stupid. Thanks David Silver.

    Exactly! I continue to be baffled why many of the 'experts' don't even bother to take a step back to inquire if what they are suggesting makes any sense at all. I am prepared to give a pass to unprepared comments or off-the-cuff remarks made on air. But these guys write!

    If the Pats truly wanted to run up the score in yesterday's contest the scoreboard at the end of the game would have read 70-21.

    Yeah, how is 7 second half points running up the score?

    Michael Silver does realize that Sage Rosenfeld threw for four TDs in the fourth quarter yesterday for the Texans while the Texans only scored 7 points the rest of the game doesn't he? The Titans almost lost that game. Anything can happen in the NFL.

    Michael Silver is, and has always been, the ideological half-brother to Dan LeBastard.

    You got that backwards. That was Law standing up for his boys...

    As for Silver, he went over the cliff when Bridget made her announcement. I don't know if he was jealous that Tommy didn't confide in him or what, but thereafter he seemed to go on a vendetta - his rant about how disappointed he was that Tommy lobbied for that stiff Moss and then on to the implications of spygate. He either had a mid life crisis or a Felger epiphany where he decided he was blocked behind Peter King and a second fiddle at SI so he started positioning himself as another off the wall attention grabbing contrarian to secure a new platform from which he may land some loudmouth multi mediot gigs.

    Ty's got it sussed out. By December Goodell is going to be under pressure to stop the Pats from continuing to embarrass the rest of the league. He'll be lobbying Kraft to have Belli call off the dogs. But it ain't going to work. If he wants the Pats to start backing off, he's going to have to very publicaly apologize for not sticking up for them when the witch hunt was at it's height.

    Something to the effect of

    "Anyone who thought that any of the Pats previous achievements was under any kind of cloud, and I'm thinking especially about Peter King here, doesn't know anything about football. Quite frankly this was the shallow-minded bleating of defeated opponents and jealous aspirants who want to be where the Pats are but can't achieve it on the football field."

    Yes , there! I like it. That should do the trick. What do you think?
