I thought we were hated. We were cheaters, dirty, unsportsmanlike, evil...suddenly there's all this love coming from the media. Peter King has been knpcking Belichick all year, now he's backpedaling. Wilbon was advising teams to go after Brady's knees last month, know he's saying "let him score, how can you not love to watch." Madden is comparing Brady to Montana. Elway stating Brady is better than Elway. All of Boomer's comments about the "legacy" year. What is going on? Seems every profootballtalk segment tonight ends with "not that it matters, the Pats will win by 30 anyway." So, at what point did we go from heels of the NFL to America's team? I sure as hell missed it.
