This is just speculation. Just like the curse of the bambino. The Patriots are victims of their own bad karma. Spygate tainted their 3 Super Bowl wins and their claims of dynasty. The unfortunate and irresponsible printing of the 19-0 book by the Boston Globe. The book was printed the week of the Super Bowl before the game was played. Im sure everybody knows what happens next the Patriots lost the Super Bowl in the biggest upset in Super Bowl history. Let's look at last year the Golden Boy Tom Brady gets injured in the first quarter of the First game in a freak injury torn acl he's out for the season. That's ok the Patriots have Matt Cassel come in and lead them to 11 wins so maybe there's not a curse. But wait they don't make the playoffs and become the team with the most wins to miss the postseason ouch. Before Tom Brady recovers fully from knee surgery Bill Bellicheck outsmarts himself by trading Matt Cassel for a second round pick oh yeah lets just include Mike Vrabel to make the deal that much better. This year Tom Brady looks like he has Steve Young Syndrome that's when the the quarterback is scared to death of all 11 defensive players mistaking them all for the grim reaper. Tom Brady's case is not as bad as Steve Young's in his last season but once a quarterback loses his air of invincibility the fear grows with every hit. Only time will tell if there is a curse or not but looks like its gonna be a long cold season.
