    There are a lot of people who want the NFL to expand into
    Europe.
    A one sided or low scoring game would probably not be as good
    as a game lot of scoring but not a blow out.

    Think BB would listen to such pleas for the "Good of the NFL" ?

    Maybe he'll just substitute players a little differently this game.

    So...are you saying the NFL will tell BB to allow Tampa some points?? REALLY....I do not think so...it's one thing if it were preseason...but a REAL NFL game...I think BB would do just the opposite...

    And, personally, I think that defensive games are more exciting to watch (especially in the 4th quarter). But, then again, I'm one of those "wierd" defense-minded guys. :cool:

    What do you think happens first?

    1) BB resigns
    2) BB shaves points in an NFL game

    Thread over.

    Wow. Yeah, I can see Belichick telling them to play down to the Bucs' level for a good show.

    Even if this "doubtfull" thing were to happen, do you think BB would give a rats *** about that and honor a request like that?


    Cold day in..........

    Won't lie - this one takes the cake.


    BB gets paid by Kraft... not the NFL. He doesn't care about the 31 other teams (haven't we heard that enough ?). I don'T think there is any way he would purposely "allow" points. Tampa will score - not because BB feels they have to - but because they are an NFL team. Take Tenn for example, I mean...

    They love soccer where sometimes nobody scores. I think they'll be more interested in seeing a good game.

    No way the NFL or BB or the Pats are going to "allow" points for the "good of the game." If the NFL thought it was that important, they wouldn't send Tampa Bay over.

    I don't think high scoring really matters anyways. You're talking about a country that is crazy over soccer, where you're lucky to see 2 goals over 90 minutes.

    With the return of Seau I think this defense is jacked, they want to prove they are an elite group. They will love to have consecutive shutouts going into the bye week. Longtime lurker and virgin poster thanks patfans for a lot of info and links over the years.

    He thought about it, but didn't pull the trigger.

    In a rather odd coincidence, he was apparently thinking of buying Liverpool FC, which will tomorrow be playing Manchester United, which is owned by . . . Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer. :eek:

    Patriots blowout wins actually bring in great television numbers.
