In Response to Re: Jets Fans Are Morons
" So your high on the Jests but Moss is your "Main Problem" with the Patriots ???" TrueChamp and ALL : TrueChamp ~, My pops just got back from Florida, So I decided to go back to my parent's house a couple of towns over in order to visit... Don't know how exactly We delved into the subject on Patriots & Football, maybe just because thats usually the most benign & safest topic for us not to argue. Either way, I in passing brought up The Jets, noteable it must have been in a derogatory and negative light, 'cause my father quickly said something back like, " WhatTH are you TALKING about?! I LOVE what New York did this offseason, sheez! While Bill Belichick has been resting on his laurels And Drafting NO-bodies, THEIR Coach has been out makin' stuff happen...He's signed Superstar after Superstar this offseason-Tradin' for Cromartie, Pittsburgh's Wide Receiver, signin' LaDamian, Heck-he was even able ta get Taylor from Miami of which Belichick AND Kraft were NEVER able to do...Their D ALONE is gonna be a Force !" Attempting to pacify a usually dedicated through the many awful New England Patriots's years, but apparently simply- presently ill-informed (perhaps temporarily insane) long-time Patriots Fan (before they were EVER a success)- And without jumping into my obsessional knowledge from following the NFL Draft all year long, I start by simply saying (so there's no firestorm between us): "Look, Did'ya get to SEE their preseason opener, The Jets's Defense was suspect at best without Revis's ability to utterly shutdown ANY team's #1 Wide Receiver, single handedly without initial LB, double CB, and/or ANY Safety help?" My father then exclaimed: " Ya wanna know what NY's Coach said? He said- I'll give Revis MY Salary...TRUST me people Revis is as good as on the field, It'll get done ." Opting not to bring up LT's slowing-down, Pittsburgh's WR's suspension, A lesser O-Line from the Jets, losing a couple of RB's, an older Defense, suspect Special Teams, or a 2nd year QB on a .500 club who I believe DOUBLED the INTs he threw vs his TDs...I went the "nice guy" route... I said, " I'll personally now take your Patriots Jersey and any and ALL Pats memorabilia...So- should we head inside for that now, or Can I simply dub you as a turncoat until the end of time towards the great New England cause while securing the rest via Fed Ex ...?" His face just turned red... So in the end, I just decided ta hit 'im up for 30 bucks, which I'm gonna use momentarilly, When I go out right now in order to get myself a few Montecristo's, Padrons, and Cohiba Churchill anniversary editions (Jeeba long-filler, if I'm not mistaken). Now, In the end, I'd like to say that THIS present, THIS victory was secured for ALL dedicated New England Patriots Fans Everywhere, but alas...IF Tom Brady himself, happens by, I will not be sharing my stogies with no other living soul- although in my defense RE: Brady comin' by, I'd give'em a moderate priced Perdomo, & tell'm it's a Padron so mine'll be free. < If you'll ALL take note- I did my pop's quote in Jets p#ke green, and mine in blood-victory red...this will be the standard henceforth...don't even get on my bad side people />

I have noticed that for those fans who are less didicated (obsessed) and for the general non-patriot specific pundits the moves of this organization have gone completely unnoticed. I don't expect everyone to follow training camp and analyze the 4th round picks, but that's what you need to do to see what this team has done.
Most of the stuff I've read has been "Pats made no offseason moves on defense and Welker is injured and may not be 100% this year so the Pats are going downhill. On the surface, that is true but as anyone who knows football knows picking up names that are known does not equal success.
I heard that at one time Brady, Brandon Marshall, T. Gonzalez, Vollmer and alot of other players were rookies with little name recognition. As it turns out right before players were big stars they were all rookie prospects. And that is how teams are built, not by waiting for breakout years, and paying top dollar for a guy whose best years are typically behind them (given the short life of NFL careers).
On a side not I picked up Hernandez in may fantasy league (late draft pick) despite reports that he who would likely not play much. He rated as like the 50th TE. Since fantasy doesn't count blocks, just yards and TD's and as we all know he has been used as a WR I would expect his fantasy value to be high. But that's the sort of inside info you get from obsessing over a team.
