What is SO sad and pathetic is that the only way to beat the Patriots, is if their top players are injured. If I knew this team could be relatively healthy for just ONE season, I would put ALL my money on them winning the SuperBowl. ALL my money. It is absolutely disgusting to see that our top players have been dealt huge injuries over the past several years, all involving the SAME player causing them! First Brady, then Welker, then Gronk, now Ridley. Arguably all of those were caused by the same player, Bernard Pollard. Not only that, but injuries and plays in general have come at the absolute WORST times for this team and I hate making excuses but I cannot even explain how UNLUCKY they have been. There's a fine line between making excuses and stating facts but it is definitely NOT an excuse when you look at how unlucky they have been.
