Point Proven
The critics have blasted them all season, but Sunday night the Patriots defense proved that they really are better than people think.

ICYMI - https://t.co/zdZKzKfWnU The roster turnover since then on the Patriots illustrates why NFL can be short for Not For Long.

Patriots have achieved tough task of earning Bill Belichick's respect, as coach tips his cap to players. https://t.co/VCG47CCvP9 #Patriots

@ryjacques U watch stupid. they pay nfl because you watch. so stop watching. do us both a favor.

@rtmcnamara @ryjacques Then why you writing to me? I didn't write u.

@ricked82 Not that I've heard of. I doubt it.

👀👀👀👀 this was my show back in the day lol https://t.co/PRT0rWrFqm

@PeterIBreen it's weird because he knows football. Just a strange blind spot

@ricked82 By every statistical measure, any analytic, Ryan and Brady were 1-2 this season.

RT @MiamiHEAT: #HEATwin ! Your @MiamiHEAT defeat the Golden State Warriors 105-102 for their 4th consecutive victory! #HEATwin https://t.c…

RT @PlayersTribune: "Pats fans y’all are spoiled. Yeah, I said it. Spoiled. Winning will do that." https://t.co/PFxrazZJfH

@MarcusPapas he whiffed on at least back-to-back plays, but I haven't gotten there yet

Did you know that Mike was asked to coach? 92. ... 93. ... https://t.co/F4wsYrzaS0

Patriots knew exactly how Steelers would react, to the point that Edelman never stopped moving, started walking to new spot.

RT @SportsCenter: Tom Brady is on the cover for ESPN The Magazine's Super Bowl Preview Issue. https://t.co/u5NKMkgtbw

That was the Patriots toying with, out-coaching the Steelers. One team was playing chess, other checkers.

    The damage has been done. The NFL is now arena football.

    New regimes = new quarterbacks.

    Manning will probably not be on the Colts next year. I hope he isn't wearing green and white.

    Me too. It's a ri-OT.

    Re: Polian(s) FIRED!

    Wonder if those mid-day guys on 98.5 still think the Colts and Jets are the model franchises the Pats should be modeled after. Kind of been their schtick whenever I had the bad judgment to put them on the last couple of years.

    He had a pretty disappointing performance on the rules committee this year. He really tried to eliminate the forward pass a week before the season started, but some others resisted his suggestion.

    Not surprising to me at all.

    That team has zero talent on defense outside of Freeney, Mathis and Bethea and hasn't been able to draft to save its life.

    The offensive line is also a mess.

    The loss of Manning exposed the Polian's poor talent evaluation abilities.

    IMO Irsay made a wise choice.

    Waiting for the other shoe to drop with Caldwell.

    I imagine it may take a couple years to get that ship righted. When you see other teams have success when a QB goes down, I guess ownership figured the problem came from personnel.

    and I'm good with it, even ifthe team improves over the long haul.

    EDIT: Does this mean Indy still maintains it's position on the competition committee?

    Re: Polian(s) FIRED!

    I heard differently. I had heard that he tried to take defenses off the field when the Colts offense is on it and replace those defenses with Fatheads of themselves.

    Bedard: The Polians got fired? Somewhere Belichick has his feet up with a stogie cackling like De Niro in Cape Fear.

    With the Polians gone, are Kraft and BB the most powerful management combo in the NFL?

    If so, nice... :cool:
