Rex, you're contradicting yourself in every post... The Pats is 9-2 also. You guys laid an EGG vs Packers (9-0), so it was like 2 plays away really. Please elaborate on just how it would be a better assessment to use the win % of the teams you've lost to... The 9 wins Pats have provides a more body of work to judge their overall play then to use the 2 losses. This is very basic don't you think? Of all the common opponents we've beaten so far, we've beaten them in a far more dominating fashion on Offense. Sure we didn't play well for 2.5 qtrs yesterday, but we got in sync after having very little time to prepare for the game. Jets on the other hand had 2 wks to prep for GB and laid an EGG. If you're saying 9-2 is 9-2, then it's irrelevant how bad Pats' D is playing, because the standing isn't based on defensive stats. Jets are in a position to win every week, but so are they for losing. You still have to play the game no matter how bad the other team appears to be. The Pats learned their lessons along the way. We changed our offensive philosophy by trading Moss and since we were humbled by Browns we've been playing mistake free football. Did your parents not give you any pat on the back growing up, so you don't know how to just compliment other teams' success?
