For all you Bears visitors, take a gander at this article in SI this AM, Michael Silver is writing about how the Pats are gearing up for their SB run...this is the short version, for the long version click on the below.. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/writers/michael_silver/11/22/patriots/index.html We'll be double-fisting drumsticks, supersizing stuffing and manhandling mashed potatoes like they're about to be outlawed. But you'll be happy to know that a certain star quarterback will be limiting his portions at his Back Bay condo come Thursday evening and waving off that oh-so-tempting slice of pumpkin pie. "Knowing Belichick, he'll probably have a weigh-in Friday morning," Tom Brady said Tuesday as he drove home from the Patriots' practice facility. "So no, there's not too much enjoyment planned. He doesn't care about holidays. His holiday is Monday, after we win." Brady was laughing as he said this, and if you're a New England fan, this is a very good sign. For one thing, it means the star quarterback and his head coach -- despite a rocky summer fueled by Deion Branch's holdout and subsequent trade to the Seahawks -- are on good enough terms for one to goof on the other publicly.... Brady was even more juiced by a deep route Watson ran on the Pats' third play of the game in which the tight end started toward the corner and cut back to the post, then made the catch for a 36-yard gain. "That was probably the best route of his career," Brady said. "He was double-covered and ran a great route to get himself open. Early in the season we struggled a lot with the passing game, but we've come a long way in the last eight weeks." As Brady knows, those first 10 games were just the appetizer. Now comes the main course -- and, if all goes as planned, a big helping of gravy to follow.
