Enough is Enough

 

 The Red Sox traveled to Japan and now the Patriots are playing in London.  What’s next, the Bruins strapping on their skates and heading to Alaska, or how about the Celtics playing in Australia while eating a little shrimp on the Barbie.  Truth be told, I don’t care where the Pats play today, all I want to see is a well-played game that they can build on.  To the entire nay Sayers out there crying that the Patriots ran up score, enough is enough.  This is a professional game with professional athletes who get paid millions of dollars to perform at their best.  Brady lost an entire year with this offense and needs all of the time that he can get, even in lopsided games.  If the Yankees were losing to the Red Sox 10-0 because C.C. was walking the ballpark; and trust me that is a big if, do you really think that the gentlemanly thing to do would be for the Red Sox to swing at every pitch no matter if it were a ball of strike because sports etiquette dictates they should?  How about the 32-point comeback the Buffalo Bills displayed on the Houston Oilers with backup Frank Reich in 1993, or the Jets miracle versus the Dolphins in 2000 to stun the league with a 40-37 victory.  If you don’t think that they would like to have a mulligan and go back and maybe keep up their intensity because they thought the game was over, well you are wrong.  The point is, that when you have a team down, keep them down.  To many times in sports we have seen comebacks because other teams have let up.  Trust me, if the Pats were to let up last week and somehow the Titans came back to win the game, there would be mass suicides in the streets of Boston questioning Bill’s decisions from the sidelines.  Why is nobody questioning the Giants romp over the Raiders two weeks ago?  I will tell you why, because people love to hate the Patriots and Bill Belichick.  It is okay for Manning to tear up the league in route to his 49-touchdown season in 2004, but not for Brady in 2007.  There was a four-week stretch were the Colts blow teams out by the scores of 49-14, 41-10, 41-9, and 51-24.  I don’t remember writers and fans screaming out that Coach Dungy was running up the scores, or Peyton Manning should let up off the gas peddle because it was the right thing to do.  No, everyone was enamored because Manning was going to break Marino’s touch down record that had sat for twenty years.  The second Brady and Belichick break records it’s bad for the league and frowned upon.  A note to everyone, take your emotions out of the game and just enjoy what you are watching.  Remember, it is just a game.
