In Response to Re: NY/NY reaction! : What's with all of he insults? Are you not able to express yourself otherwise? So, a brief period of success in the Patriots history and you are somehow knowledgeable about the relationship between bravado, confidence and winning? I find it difficult to believe that the best defense and playing in the conference championship was mediocre. Clearly, for a first year HC, that is something to build upon. And what is the next step? I don't think for a second that Bill has a team that doesn't believe they are capable of winning the Superbowl. You, however, seem to believe that there is some harm in saying it from merely believing it. As if, that statement somehow weakens a team or improves another team. Are you aware of just how ridiculous that is?

You really are something else ... just what that is, I'm not sure. Apparently you are as obtuse as you seem or you are totally disingenuous. Which is it? So, your insults are more subtle than mine? Perhaps, but you are insulting none the less.To begin with, you could try to stop putting words in my mouth ... though that wouldn't serve your inane arguments, would it? You said "So, what you are saying is, either the Patriots don't believe they will win the superbowl or are afraid to say it. Which one is it." Of course I said no such thing, and yes it's insulting and a lie to claim I did. Geez, even for a jest fan you're not too bright (Yeah, that's an insult. See, not subtle. Direct and to the point). You find it difficult to believe that your 9 -7 team from last year (who everybody outside of ny knows backed into the playoffs) is not mediocre because they actually played two good games in a row. I mean you've heard the thing about a blind squirrel and the acorn ... right? And then you say, "So, a brief period of success in the Patriots history and you are somehow knowledgeable about the relationship between bravado, confidence and winning?" Once again, you're just making stuff up to try to win some absurd argument on your part. I never said or intimated any such thing. Let me simplify things for you (though you probably still won't understand it). It's low-class to be a blow-hard bully, which describes your coach and your fan base, particularly when you've yet to do anything to back it up. Sure it's one way to go. However, when you fall on your face (and you undoubtedly will at some point) and the rest of the league is laughing at you don't be surprised. You see, if you had a little class, as an underdog, aside from their own team, other fans would be pulling for you (You know, like the Saints last year). It's human nature. BUT, it's also human nature (anywhere except for ny apparently) to dislike blow-hards. Clear enough for you?
