Honestly, there are pretty much ZERO stories in the NFL this year outside the Patriots. As much as the media and opposing fans ***** and complain about the Pats, guess what? At least they are giving you something to talk about! Not so much tooting the Pats horn here, but the NFL this year outside the Pats is pretty blah. You have Indy methodically winning in a ho-hum fashion. And that's about it. No other great teams. I suppose the Favre and the Packers would be the biggest story. So the way I look at it all those whiners in fandom in the media should be thanking the Pats rather than crapping all over them.
