    Brady's broader point DOES make sense. As much as Florio is a douche, at least he does point this out.

    Here's what I suggested on another thread (http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/showthread.php?t=68087&page=5 post #45):

    OK, here's a sample of things he should have said...

    "Gee whiz, I thought, really thought, the whole point of the game was to score points! Oh, well, I'll talk to coach about it."

    "It really, really bothers me that we're not 5-5, or maybe even 4-6."

    "You know, you gentlemen may have something there. I'm gonna talk to Randy and Donte and Wes and see if we can't arrange it so they'll drop a few passes here and there, ya know, just so we get invited to the post-game beerfest and can mingle without having a lot of tension in the room."

    "I have absolutely no intention of 'killing the other team'. Cripes, that would be akin to killing puppies!"

    "Since everyone in the league makes pretty much the same money, I guess it's a good idea that we all have pretty much the same records, and pretty much the same points-for totals and points-against totals. That would undoubtedly do a lot to expand the popularity of the league."

    "It's obvious to me, and has been for some time now, that what the NFL is really all about is mollifying sports writers and TV talking heads. Frankly, I don't know what's gotten into us, but you can bet your bottom dollar that that's going to stop - pronto!"

    "I've got to admit all this whoop-de-doo about our games brings back memories of my rather painful youth, when I'd come home from playing football with the guys with big grass stains on my jeans. My God, how my mother used to blow up over that! Yeah, that's what this reminds me of, and to tell you the truth, I'm feeling kinda guilty right now."

    PFT would benefit
    from some competition in its niche.

    Yeah, Brady wants to destroy other teams as opposed to the other 31 QBs in the league who find 3 point nailbiters MUCH more enjoyable.

    This is so overblown it's not even funny.

    It seemed to me to be pretty tongue-in-cheek, unless you think PFT was actually insinuating that Brady wanted to kill people.

    Don't take PFT so seriously. It's just a rumor mill, with some humor.

    I think all this anti-Patriot talk has made most Pats fans extra touchy. When you’re the big dog in the NFL everyone likes to poke fun, it comes with the territory.

    Enjoy the Patriots season. It's special.

    I'm sick of the complaining about the Patriots running up the score. I think Brady is bringing the right "thought process" to every game and I think Gay put it all into a (although odd) perspective. Hey, if the opponents want to put their "B" guys in at the start of the third quarter, that is their decision. They can't expect the Pats to follow up the move of their opponent and put in Cassel et al. The Pats gotta stay strong for four quarters and if their opponents want to prepare for the next week by sitting their starters for a quarter or more, than they shouldn't wonder why they play below their ability.

    And I'm not saying that they all pull their starters, but maybe the defense should have some respect for themselves and play hard for all four quarters. It ain't easy to play your heart out when your losing by more than 20 points, but Gay said it right: you need to earn that paycheck no matter what the score is (at least that is how I take it to mean).

    And who can deny the psychological warfare going on when your following opponent sees that you demolished the team before them and the team before that. And who can deny that there is some kind of effect from having your opponent a 16 point under dog or 20 point under dog.

    Critics can stuff it. Their not going to like the Patriots if they pulled their starters or took a knee for the entire fourth quarter. They came down on the Pats for the camera thing, they are all in love with Peyton and they have had a field day with Belichick's on field attire since day one. I beat it is pretty popular to not like the Patriots right now and scoring a few less touchdowns isn't going to make a difference.... so stuff it!

    PFT: UPDATE: Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe has contacted us to explain that Brady actually said "we're trying to kill teams" not "we're trying to kill people." So Brady apparently wants to commit murder 53 people at a time.

    What a moron. Next he will go beserk when he finds out Brady is throwing bombs, and invoke the Patriot Act.

    I can only assume that he is failing miserably at trying to be funny.

    I couldn't agree more. PFT is joking around. Not the greatest joke or anything, but the pats fans response to this is as oversensitive and wussy as those fans who whine about the running-it-up issue in the first place.

    That's not true at all. It is much, much easier to criticize those that are on top. But criticism should be expected when you're are on top. You're right about that. But NO team should have to take insult after insult and be called cheaters & classless all season long.

    Patriots fans are as proud as any fan base in the country and to have to listen to all that we have endured all season long is unprecidented in NFL history. How can you say we are over-sensitive? Have you no pride?

    Name one other GREAT team that has had to endure the criticism the Patriots have received this year. No matter what your perspective, you can not say it is deserved, that would be an outright lie.

    I'm becoming numb trying to keep track of the hatred.

    Patriots haters fall into several categories IMO....

    Agenda holders:
    - Prisco (hates us because our fans constantly e-mail him)

    - Peter King (Manning ball washer in chief)

    - Merill Hoge (Steeler homer)

    - John Clayton (Manning ball washer).

    - Mortensen (Manning ball washer)

    The righteous indignation brigade:

    - Mike Florio PFT (hates the team because of a perceived lack of class)

    - Skip Bayless (loathes anyone or any team that is successful.)

    -Greg Easterbrook (bible thumper, says the team is "evil")

    The semi-literate:
    - Shannon Sharpe (I often have trouble understanding his version of english, but I gather he does not like the team)

    to be honest i dont mind shannon sharpe. he criticizes any team he chooses to and praises anyone. he speaks his mind and isnt biased or afraid of anyone.i honestly like him for that.i remmeber when the pats played the cowboys he was asked to pick the game. He asked ."which team does roy williams play for?" Everyone answered the cowboys , he goes "then i go with the other team " -his point being williams cant cover anyone. Thought that was hilarious.

    Wake me when Tom Brady says something that makes no sense to the NFL where the concept is to dominate and play well at all times.
