    Okay, so normally I'm a fan of Florio and his website. I find he has the best sources and tends to break news before anybody else. Also during the off-season, this site is updated more fequently then any other. But this recent 'rumor' or post or whatever you want to call it is pure opinion. I'm sick of this "running up the score" bull****.

    Would the Patriots have been ready for the Colts if they had sent in the reserves in the 2nd quarter of every game during the first half of the season? Would they have been ready mentally and physically for that game if they had been in pre-season mode through the first 8 weeks? Give me a break, as has been said multiple times on this site so far, there's no crying in football and the defense of the Bills is paid millions of dollars to stop the Pats offense. They should be ashamed of themselves, not the Patriots.

    Anyway, I think the booze is starting to talk more right now. Here's to the Pats running the table.

    yeah he talks about karma...... like the pats are going to pay for this.


    this IS karma.
    This is what happens when you rob a team or their first round draft pick for doing something that every nfl team does.

    Everyone pays.

    I 100% agree with you man. I am so tired of all this whinning from all the non-Patriots fans and idiot "experts". This is freaking Pro Football, these guys play to win and try to score. WTF are they suppose to do, take a knee in the 2nd quater??? Oh we are up by 5 TDs in the first half, we don't need to play anymore. Does anyone think that would be ****ty for the people in the stadium if Patriots start sending in their backups in the 3rd? This is not ******* pre-season!!!!!!

    Florio has a "feeling" that the Patriots won't win it all. What a fact-based site.

    Dont you guys know that the media just likes to try and make stories up, just to try and get attention. I wouldn't pay attention to them, and I am sure you guys could care less what they think.:cool:

    I have a problem with the announcers analysis with this "running up the score" nonsense. When your in the endzone territory, not kicking a field goal, and going for it instead, thats not running up the score. The opposing team can still stop them. What are they suppose to do punt so the opposition might "feel better" about themselves?

    It just shows how people can ignore logic and just say things based on pre-conceived notions, without any thought.

    It's running up the score in the 3rd quarter now. Soon it will be the 2nd quarter, and eventually the pats should just not play their starters for the entire game. What amazes me the most is how the pats managed to NOT score with 13 minutes left in the fourth quarter. I think it was harder to NOT score than it was to score.


    The going for it on 4th down stuff is so stupid, it's getting quite annoying. A field goal is ONLY GOOD FOR POINTS WHEN YOU NEED POINTS. When you don't need points you need time off the clock and field position. Going for it on fourth down is not only the best option, it's the smart option.

    Me and my brother said it right when they went for it, "and there's another running up the score article". lol. I'm waiting for someone to say the DEFENSE is running up the score too. Then for someone to suggest the defense just LET the other team drive and score when up by so much.

    If we don't play for 60 minutes we can't expect to play for 60 minutes when we need to (like I dunno against the COLTS).



    And of course no team ever takes out their starters when they are DOWN by a lot against us, but we have to stop trying, not them? BUNCH OF SISSIES!

    This from the site trying to raise a stink because Viniateri was dinged up and the Colts didn't report it on their injury report. EVERYONE is dinged up this time of year.:rolleyes:

    Then a little while later he's stinking on the refs in the Balt-Cleve game for using replay...one problem-they didn't.

    He once was pretty good but now I think he just makes stuff up for hits.

    I agree with your gripe man, after the last drive of the third quarter, me and my buddies who watch these games religiously laughed our asses off of how much better this team is than any other in the league right now.

    Coming from three guys who have the entire Pats team on our fantasy team with a lucrative pot, we were all rooting for Brady (who is my QB, BTW) to not even play the fourth quarter, have Evans and Eckel run it out, and 2nd and 3rd string QBs to just "run the offense."

    I'm happy as a Pats fan at our "class," even if I was rooting for Randy to get 5 TDs.

    I think we played this one pretty fair. I mean, he TB and company played like 3 quarters. What else can they do?

    Can we just get a sticky for one big merged thread for all the whining from opposing team fans and the "experts"?

    I have to admit, the thought of playing Green Bay in the SB has given me the willies.

    You made two points in your email. He will respond just like everyone else does when faced with two questions - only answer the easier one.

    He'll respond to the 3rd paragraph there, and completely ignore the first two. Guaran-freaking-teed.

    My apologies if these have been asked/answered already, but I have a couple of questions:

    1. Does Florio do all the writing at PFT, or are there multiple writers? I've noticed that everytime the author of an article there wants to express their opinion, they say "we think", as if to say that there are a group of people that feel the exact same way.

    2. Did PFT call out the Packers last week for "running up the score"? Under six minutes left in the game and up 27-0 at home, Favre was still on the field and threw another TD pass to make it 34-0 before they finally put in Rodgers, who threw on two of his first four plays with less than four minutes remaining.

    Well I am a "non-Patriots fan" and i'm not whining. Sheeeiiiit...run up the score on my Chargers and I won't complain. (BTW pats are my 3rd fav team) I hate to even call it "running up the score". It's called playing the game. The object is to win. When you play monopoly you don't give the other guy some properties so it can be close. Who doesn't want to win anything with a massacre? If you can kill 'em...do it! People who complain about it are just frustrated at their team. F 'em!

    How come the only people that get respect points are the ones that agree with you? Doesn't make sense to me, just because someone disagrees makes them an idiot? The simple fact is that image in your signature signifies that you will never respect me simply because of the team I root for.

    Belichick likes Dick Jauron. If the idiots think we're running up the score now, wait till we play the Jests.

    Anyone remember this play?

    4-1-BUF 31 (3:57) (Punt formation) PENALTY on NE-38-K.Eckel, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at BUF 31 - No Play.

    This was in the fourth quarter (3:57 remaining), with the Patriots up 56-10. Instead of gambling on fourth down, or sending Gostkowski out for a 49-yard field goal attempt which, if made, would have set a team record for points in a game, the punting unit was on the field.

    The next play, Hanson punted it through the endzone... didn't even look like he was attempting to pin the ball deep.

    I wonder why PFT didn't mention any of this. :rolleyes:

    I jsut don't think I should have to fellate your team to earn respect, that's pretty narrow-minded way of thinking.

    It's because you're one of those people who feel justified in hating the Patriots for the spygate incident even though they were penalized and the issue resolved. You use that fact as the FALSE basis of your disdain for the Patriots even though many, many other teams have committed similar violations (like the Dolphins). Then you saw how much the Patriots have dominated the league and you see stories on how they shouldn't be running it up and BINGO!...you have another false fact to add to the justification of your hatred.

    The bottom line is that every fan like you just LOVES to hear and read media articles that criticize the Patriots because it VALIDATES your hatred for them and actually makes you feel RIGHTEOUS in your hatred.

    To sum all this up in a way you can understand, here is what has happened to you:

    -You were sick of the Patriots beating the Dolphins every year
    -You hated that the Patriots have 3 Super Bowl rings and the Dolphins have none
    -You saw all the talent the Patriots got in the off season and that pissed you off even more because we stole Welker from your team
    -The stage was now set. Your hatred was boiling, but you couldn't blame it on anything but your own jealousy and you couldn't admit to that.

    Then...SPYGATE!!! and you said YESSS!!! Now I have a legitimate reason for hating the Patriots! Then you saw the media criticizing the Patriots for running up the score and you felt even more RIGHTEOUS in your hatred.
    Add in a couple of fines (that most teams commit) for various violations and there you are Aqua4Ever!!
    You now feel you can prove your hatred is just and right.

    But oh, wait a minute, you already hated the Patriots before all this even started!!

    Don't feel bad though, there are millions just like you!
