How many times are we going to have to hear this dreck? Even if the Pats don't win this year, are they somehow prohibited from playing next year? If they bow out in the AFC championship game, then go on to win next year's Superbowl, does that somehow disqualify that victory from being part of the dynastic run? No, the Patriots are going to continue to be loaded, with more young talent supplementing the already terrific base that's in place, a young franchise QB, the best coach in the game, and a battle tested team that's proven it can get it done. The Pats aren't going anywhere. That said, they're going to kill the donkeys in that miserable city. I spent three months in that backwater, hick-laden, ghetto, filthy, disgusting excuse for a cesspool of a city, and I wouldn't shed a tear if it burned down.
