    On Thursday’s NFL Network’s Point After, former Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest gave his take on who will win Sunday’s Colts–Patriots matchup:“Really, I don’t think it’s gonna be close. I think New England is going to pretty much dominate this game. I think, if it’s close and it comes down to a field goal, you’ve got [...]

    Actually, I'd LOVE Willie back as a coach. The man is a champ. His heart, his mind, his passion, i couldn't disagree more -- i would LOVE Willie back in the fold. Not as a player, but .. man, that guy is a Patriot.

    I agree, the Pats are being low key but we are so much better than when we last met.

    The fun will be once the game starts.

    You know Willie is rooting for us. :rocker:
    I bet he wishes that he could be a part of this. Man, it really sucked to see him go. He'll always be a Patriot as far as I'm concerned, but I'm glad he's with RAC.
    I don't think that I could have handled it well if he ended up with the MANGENIOUS. :rolleyes:

    Willie is correct. And it doesn't matter if he says it out loud or not. We're going to CREAM them. It's no problem whatsoever.

    I would have preferred an edorsement from Emmit Smith:
    "The Colts are gonna get blowed out"

    ... but I guess the confidence of McGinest is the next best thing.

    Willie is the one player who has left New England that I feel has helped his team the most... both from his play on the field and as his role as a leader on that team.

    Some guys who left played good for the new teams (Woody, Milloy, Law, Bledsoe, Branch), but none of those guys have the leadership of McGinest IMO.

    Seems like Cleveland is starting to turn a corner. I was worried about Crennel floppy, but I think he turning the ship around and will actually turn out to be a pretty good coach.

    Ratgini, on the other hand, is f.cked!

    Wasn't sure where to put this and I have much respect for the Pats team, but I really believe that this is a MUCH bigger game for the Pats than the Colts.

    They are studying like its a Superbowl? Don't get me wrong, it's very big for the Colts, but not nearly as important as this seems to be to the Patriots.

    It's one of sixteen games for the Colts. I think if the Pats lose, it could really effect their psyche the rest of the season, so its almost like a MUST win for them. It's like they've put their whole season on the line for one game.

    Anyway, not trying to start trouble and won't respond to nonsense, just my humble opinion.

    Willie knows what the NFL will not be able to deny by 7:30PM Sunday.

    The Patriots study for every game like it's the Super Bowl.

    Of course revenge is a factor for the Patriots. But I don't think a loss will destroy either team more than the other. We've lost to teams in big games before and came back to beat them in the playoffs. The Patriots are not like the Chargers or Cowboyz who were both very shaken by their losses to the Patriots this year. You just know they're both still thinking about it.

    Brady has been waiting for this game from the moment the gun sounded to end the game the last time these two teams met.

    Brady never forgets a loss, and a loss in the playoffs is about as bitter as they come when you have run out to a 20-3 lead in the first half.

    Hell, I'VE been waiting for this game since last year. That game left a rank taste in my mouth. Give Indy and Peyton their props -- they are a very good team -- but we had them beaten and let it slip away.

    If people are sincerely interested in knowing *why* the Pats have shown no mercy this season, that game with the Colts in the playoffs is reason #1. Mangini/Jets/Goodell is a distant -- but still potent -- #2.

    Good point about the Chargers, it seems they are JUST now getting their feet back under them. Regardless, the outcome of the Colts/Pats game if the Colts go into San Diego next week and win handily it may send them right back into that hole that the Pats started them off in.

    Another thing I hadn't considered is I forgot the Pats have a bye week following this game, either way it turns out they may have a chance to get past whatever the outcome is, win or lose.

    With all the hype surrounding this game, it'll be interesting to see what the Media pundits say either way, they'll have to be hungover from the over exposure.

    Thanks for the support Willie, but I really don't value former player's analysis of games involving their former teams. They are biased depending how they left. Look how biased Marshall Faulk's analysis is in favor of his former team, the Colts.
