    I sure hope so! I love being the underdog and I think this team prefers that role anyways. but I doubt the Pats will be dogs according to the oddsmakers.

    Good! Being the favorite is less fun.

    I don't think they will, but the NFC game is only in the 1st. The winner there could even be considered lucky.

    The Pats did show (although with a little luck) that they could win playing the game the way the Ravens wanted it to, not the way the Pats wanted it to. I think people don't think Brady will have two bad games in a row.

    I've said this before and I'll say it again. I don't think this team can win a SB if they can't hit something over the top. The Ravens were defending a 15 yard window all game. Looked for a while like Ocho could at least provide a threat, but now we're back to Matthew Slater. I'm hoping against hope that Ocho can at least have a package of plays that he can run in the SB.

    Maybe, but let's see what happens this game. The winner of this game could win sloppy too.

    Yeah, I am still shaking my head at Ocho being inactive ...like seriously..They need a legit deep threat and a new secondary..

    From what I've read it'll be Pats -6.5 vs SF or Pats -4 vs NYG

    With the exception of the injuries, this is EXACTLY the game I hoped for all week.

    It is a huge advantage in my mind for us to have our bad game this week, and eat humble pie for two weeks. Overconfidence is officially not an issue.

    I wanted the sloppy win and I want the underdog status in the media if we can get it.

    I did not want a blowout.

    Ocho was inactive due to the death of his father. He'll be back there for the SB.

    You mean like the one to Branch last week, and all the ones in the seam to Gronk?

    Intreresting comments within an hour of winning the AFCC. And what in the world makes you consider 85 a deep threat? Have you watched the games this year?

    I highly doubt it. Especially if SF wins. I'd bet it opens at 7 vs SF.

    I'm trying hard to whomp up even a wee bit of caring about the betting line in the Superbowl. Trying...trying...

    Nope, sorry, don't care at all.

    (Or was this thread just an attempt at bitter negativity toward a team that went 13-3, earned the #1 seed, and just accepted the Lamar Hunt trophy? If so, may I suggest that's being, oh, maybe just a little hard to please?)

    The seam was defended today and the Giants and 49ers have the ability to do the same. I think that's great that you can point to an example or two when the Pats have gone deep this year, but the fact is you can't count on Branch to get behind anybody and you can't count on Slater to catch anything. IMO, their best shot to hit something deep is with Ocho.

    I can point to more, only one of which was to 85. Its been 18 weeks, give it up, he isn't any good.
