    Exactly! The Bengals have an even larger black cloud that follows them and they can't win on the field and in the pocketbook (they are one of the lowest revenue generating franchises in the league).

    USA Today is just trying to make the best of a slow news day in the NFL. No big deal in my opinion. They have already done 100 stories on Cincy's problems.

    Whatever.

    OTOH, isn't it funny that both Mannings have won Super Bowls, only to have those victories overshadowed by the Patriots anyways? :)

    If we have a black cloud following us, the Bengals have a hurricane following them.

    What is wrong with asking that question? I have asked myself the same thing in the last couple days. Other than pointing out Brady's "child out of wedlock" I don't really see anything wrong with this article. When your are one of the most successful franchises in all of sports the light does shine that much brighter on the Patriots and I hope that Kraft/the FO/coaching staff can stop things from progressing. How many more arrests before we start being called the new Cincy?

    Troll...

    How many more arrests?

    We've had two over the last several years.

    Are you serious?

    Re: USA Today:What's wrong in New England? Pats' bad luck keeps growing

    Would I prefer not to see these things happening to the Patriots? Of course.

    But I would much rather see something like marijuana possession, Kaczur's situation, and an illegitimate child (whose inclusion on this list seems ******* insane) than DUIs, assault, shootings, or hit-and-runs.

    So all you are saying is that the Bengals have more problems than us. That should make us feel better. What about the 30 other teams?

    Re: USA Today:What's wrong in New England? Pats' bad luck keeps growing

    They also do.

    This is easily one of the cleanest teams in the league.

    Just look at the rap sheet over the last several years.

    Let's see:

    Kaczur
    Harrison
    Andrews

    Over the last three years.

    Care to add to that?

    If we have one incident per year, that puts us easily into the best of the league.

    I'm very happy and very proud that the Patriot players are doing so well.

    No Patriot players are shooting at innocent people with Belgian handguns. That's something to be proud of.

    They are being caught with painkillers, human growth, marijuana,all of which are used by 90% of the players in the league.

    The problem with this is that all three of those incidents occured in one year, not three.

    Re: USA Today:What's wrong in New England? Pats' bad luck keeps growing

    Dallas: Pacman Jones, TO, Romo (his Jessica Simpson stuff is the same as Giselle for Brady), Ellis is biatching, Terrance Newman is callign Roy Williams soft

    Tampa Bay: Garcia is threatening to retire because he is disrespected, Jerramey Stevens is in trouble again, Bradkowski is cut and uncut

    The Chargers: Half their LB corp have been caught taking steriods, former Charger's dog attacks a woman

    Indy: Harrison may be charged with attempted murder at some point

    Miami: The Jason Taylor saga, Will Allen getting into a brawl outside of Bed, Bath, and Beyond

    Should I go on? I am not happy about the Patriots problems, but there are plenty of teams with their own problems.

    Amen. And I'm sick and tired of the media making an issue out of Brady having a child out of wedlock. They should go look around society in general before casting stones at ONE PERSON just because he's famous.
    Brady is not the only player in the entire NFL to have a child out of wedlock, and he certainly won't be the last. (Travis Henry, says HELLO!). I also doubt highly that he's the only PATRIOT that's in this situation.

    I forgot about him. I'm sure that there are many more. Does it make it right? No. But these things happen. They happen to the average joe as well as the most famous.

    It's not funny that the Patriots have "overshadowed" the Mannings and let them start a family dynasty on our heads.

    Personally, I'm more concerned about on-the-field "bad luck".

    Re: USA Today:What's wrong in New England? Pats' bad luck keeps growing

    Then don't act like an asz and whine about it -Pass it over

    Its whiners of articles like you that make it worse than the article itself - If you don't like reading negative threads -DON'T READ THEM! DUH :rolleyes:

    No one really cares if you don't like them and it won't change anything - And I say this without being the one who actually posted this stuff

    I myself enjoy hearing the pros and cons about this team from people who love the Pats and those who hate them,It makes it interesting and passes the long offseason even if negatives articles are stupid.

    Besides it does not matter what negative or in fact postive things are said,Its what this team does ON THE FIELD - So get a life and chill.

    Week 1 is only 12 1/2 weeks away.....
