    The media has already wrote Denver vs San Fran into the super bowl and Miami winning our division. Grading Free Agency as a failure while applauding big moves as if they ever pan out. Local sports radio couldn't be more pessimistic. I can't wait for the under dog Patriots to shock and awe.

    This thread actually provides a solution to the NFL on the injury front.

    Each year after free agency the media will tell us who will win the division, conference and eventually the Super Bowl. No need to play the games thus solving the injury problem.

    Unfortunately a little less exciting for us fans, but who are we to complain. The media has all the answers just ask them.:rolleyes:

    Hey, I enjoy a little "media is out to get us" paranoia as much as the next guy, but where the heck are you seeing ANYONE picking Miami to win the division??!?

    Agreed, I did not even hear a Miami fan say they were going to compete for the division.

    And this is not the first year that the pats were not favored by most to win the conference. SD, Pitt and Indy all at times were the preseason favorite

    I wasn't aware that being #5 out of 32 in the Power Rankings constitutes being an underdog, but sure, I can live with that.

    It is always a good idea to guage the opinion of forum members. It is not done enough IMO.

    I don't think we're by any means, underdogs, TB=TD. I will say unlike the last two years we won't be considered by many the favorites. The media's gonna hype up "The Forehead, and his new target Welker." and "How the Texans are SB favorites for getting a 35 year old safety." And no matter what, even if we load up everywhere in the remaining FA and the draft, they'll still be saying, "Oh, but they lost Wes Welker, how will they ever survive??"

    The media just becomes predictable to me anymore. I wouldn't ever buy into it.

    Oh, and on NFLN last night apparently according to Darren Sharper, our window of opportunity is shut. What's funny is he didn't give many good reasons, he just kept barking on losing Welker, and how we haven't won a SB since 2005, so therefore we never will.

    Kneejerk media is always fun this time of year. :cool:

    Pleeeease!!! This is another case of Mediots stirring up something anything they could get knock Pats. But All Pats keep doin is winning. Their always right there and this year won't be any different.

    And Denver is a Lock to win out AFC? Well why bother playin this season just hand them trophy now?! Lets see PMann another year older with neck & arm and hosting a game in Denver in Jan winter when his throws go as far a whiffle ball. remember boys & girls it would be nice to have a FULL SQUAd with Gronk & Talib etc etc etc actually all playing together in a Playoff Game because we we're 1 1/2 Gronks away from having 5 SB Wins.

    Must be the same guy on NFL.com who thinks the Jets will go 10-6 this year.

    Denver's never going to when the uper Bowl with this squad. I guarantee you. Like Tedy Bruschi once said, "They ain't got it." They built a team that can go 13-3, but not a team that will win anything in the playoffs.

    Joey Exactly! There is no good reason it all about ratings good cop bad cop It's my turn to Slamm Pats then It's your turn to Slamm Pats. Memo get handed out at NFLN meeting so who wants to SLAM Pats today? Welker departure just gives'm more material to mess with us. Nothing new here. It's like Gronk & A Hern are now non factors & our running game is an after thought.

    We can ALWAYS count on a critical pick from P Mann in a BIG TIME moment when it counts!

    even if people think we are done and underdogs it would be over 4 weeks into the season.

    As I said when the Pats were stumbling through their 10-6 2009 campaign, if they're underdogs, it's for good reason. Right now, if anyone views them as underdogs, I would guess that it's because they don't actually have a starting caliber WR unit. It would seem as if Belichick is relying a whole lot on the draft at the moment when he should probably make at least one more move in free agency first (that being for either Cruz or Sanders).

    Oh, and I have to think that TB=TD is some sort of post bot.
