    I disagree. The Panthers were never going to be a good team this season thanks to Delhomme and their D-line situation. That was plainly obvious from before the first ball was snapped this year.

    The Pats however were still a good team despite Seymour not being there, you always will be with Belichick as your coach, Tom Brady at QB, and Randy Moss and Wes Welker at WR. The division title on the back of a pretty tough schedule backs that up.

    The Pats won their division, made the Playoffs, might have gone deeper but for losing Welker (and having a competent run game), and still have the Raiders pick.

    The Panthers got nowhere, went 8-8, and will probably trade away their 2011 first rounder like they did with their 2009 and 2010 drafts.

    I didn't get this. Reiss is comparing apples and oranges. Pats had VW and Sey up after 2010 and could only slap the tag on one. Peppers is the only guy of substance worth slapping the cap on for 'Lina.

    He's a better man than me. The last time I tried thinking while shoveling, I accidentally impaled my neighbor with my shovel. Well, that is the story I told the cops and they seemed have bought it. So all is good.

    I am usually cussing while I'm shoveling, so for Reiss to be calm and analytic at such trying times is exemplary.

    You got me. I think there is something in Massachusetts law that says killing a Colts fan is justifiable homicide, but I didn't want to risk it.

    its not THAT hard! :D

    but in all seriousness, Reiss is a superb reporter, I didn't realize how good he was until that idiot breer took over with his blog (which I really prefer not to even look at)

    The writing styles of both Breer and Rappaport bother me. The write like a 24 year old blogger. Nothing against that but from a newspaper I expect better.

    Always liked Reiss.

    Reiss is a good reporter. But as a critical football thinker, there is a reason he's blogging for BSPN and shoveling his own driveway and this is it.

    Couldn't agree more. Reiss takes time to methodically address questions in a thoughtful, well-thought-out manner.

    Breer, on the other hand, appears to be posting entries as he is rushing out the door to eat more cheeseburgers :D
