Heard today on Sports Talk radio some jocks saying the Pats will be better off as the 4th seed. Are they right? Is the playoff picture clear enough as to who they will play as the 3rd or 4th seed? Not saying the Pats should throw games, but resting some beat up starters, or trying out projects like Tony Logan might not be bad if the 4th seed actually offers an easier path.
I thought that too last night, and I actually wrote about it.
However, after seeing who Denver played after they played teh Pats, I can comfortably say now that it does not matter whether Pats go 3 or 4. Dever is a pretender. They won all their game sbecasue tehy played really bad teams all the way
I wouldn't underestimate Denver. I think they will be the toughest test for the Pats should we come to a matchup.
Patriots played with probably an equally bad schedule last season and made it all the way to the Super Bowl.
I think second half denver is different from first half denver. And yes, they have had an easy schedule, but that does not necessarily make them a pretender. They can only play who they have on the schedule. Second half, they had no tough tests. So we don't know how they will measure up.
All I know is that they've won the games that they have been supposed to win
i hear depat. i am just saying pats should not be more concerned about denver than houston. after the den vs. nwe game, who were the quality teams that den played?
cin - who i think is not a very good team
bal - which was a much better team when nwe played them than when den played them.
since their meeting, nwe had to deal with...
sea, who turns out to be the real deal (and only lsot to them by a point).
stl who is playing at least as good as nwo
ind, hou and sff.
