I guess Wade is due
Next someone starts a thread on game day "Sun to rise in East before the game!"
Frankly, I thought the comments were more of a "diss" of Peyton Manning than of the Patriots, and I don't think they were a diss of Manning at all. However, your team is crying about an article by a writer, so let's not play this game. When it comes close to game time, teams look for motivation anywhere they can perceive it. The play is usually about a lack of respect. While I agree that Philipps' words are getting some good twisting this week, this is what happens, so don't pretend it's only in New England. The only way to avoid becoming fodder for teams/fans is to say something pretty close to "We're playing a great team this week. We're going to prepare hard and do our best".
Pretty much anything else is going to get twisted.
LOL 3 games in 13 days.....how did they do it?
all teams regularly play 3 games over a 14 day period
he looks 9 months along
The Patriots were missing the greatest Tight End of all time on that game, so it kind of trumps all the circumstances you listed there. And that game was 42-7 when the starters were playing. It was as much of a blowout as a 12 win team will ever be involved in. Sure, everything you said played against the Texans, and I don't expect the Pats to steamroll you guys the same way, but you have to improve A LOT to win this game, based on the prior meeting between both teams.
OK, the Patriots do have Brady at QB. But if you take away Welker, Hernandez, Gronkowski and Lloyd, who is he going to throw too? Yeah, alright, the RBs can catch the ball too. But the point is, if you focus on stopping the run, then Brady is left without a good 6th receiving option.
Personally I couldn't care less about the "we feel like we should win" bit, but it always baffles me when opposing coaches discuss game planning before a game. And given Wade's history re: gameplans, I have to assume he's being forthright.
