Jet Blue offers one-way tickets from Boston to Oakland for $414, which is much cheaper than the ticket Bill Belichick and the Patriots would have had to pay to keep Richard Seymour in New England. In the meantime, the frequent flier miles for the Patriot Express continues to pile up as Richard Seymour flew the coup yesterday for the Oakland Raiders. As a reminder to all who play for the Patriots, Bill Belichick will do what ever is needed in securing the future of this football team for years to come. Since their last Super Bowl win, the Patriots defense has become slower, older, and more predictable. No longer is the mad scientist able to disguise flaws in his ever-changing defensive schemes. Father Time reaches all eventually and as much as Vrabel, McGinest, Bruschi, and Seymour were great players, their value to their team diminished. As cold as it may seem, once Belichick sees this he severs the cord. Football may be a game but in the end it is just business. Most fans are emotionally attached; they wear blinders while reminiscing of players performances from years past instead of seeing what is actually in front of them on the television. And from what I have seen, the defense that has brought us three Super Bowl winners and years of excitement has finally run out of gas. So don't panic Patriot fans, for as many flights depart Logan there is another one arriving on the Patriot Express.
