What a load of BS. This isn't high school football. Grow some balls. If you don't want to be beaten by 45 points, then get a god damn defense. It would be far more disprespectful for the Pats to feel sorry for your pathetic team that they'd just hand the ball over to you and treat you like a bunch of spoilt soccer mom kids who need Effort Trophies. There is nothing respectful in trying NOT to score. In fact, there's nothing more insulting. So grow the eff up.
