It’s that favorite time of year


It’s that favorite time of year…time to crap on other people’s teams!

The JETS are going to S-T-R-U-G-G-L-E!  The running game is appreciably worse without Jones.  The secondary is a wash losing Rhodes and gaining Cromartie.  So what do we have here?  A still very good defense, barring injury - as depth is a concern for the Jets.  So the defense is a big plus.  The offense is worse unless Sanchez makes marked strides forward.  So when all is said and done – they have basically the same team as last year, unless one of the draft picks emerges as a force.  What does that equate to?  9-7 or 10-6 and maybe one impressive win in the playoffs.  Not bad, but if you are being honest with yourself, this is a team that is not going to the Super Bowl.  The Jets only hope is if an unknown player on offense really emerges. 

Buffalo hired Chan Gailey.  That makes Wade Phillips, Gregg Williams, Mike Mularkey, Dick Jauron, Perry Fewell, and now Chan.  Thank you, Ralph Wilson, for the coaching decisions and the 19-5 record over the above’s tenure.   Chan should fall right in line. 

Miami actually scares me a bit.  I think they will be a competitive team.  Classic bounce back year for Parcells in year 3. 

Mr.  Rooney, please advise your team in a memo that any sexual assaulting should take place before the start of free agency. 

An open letter to Seahawks fans:  Pete Carroll was nicknamed “Christmas Carol” during his tenure in New England.  Also during his first year as coach the team was 10-6.  Then 9-7.  Then 8-8.  The season before Pete came to New England the Pats were in the Super Bowl.   Two years after Pete left, the Patriots won the Super Bowl.  The core group of players were present before, during and after Pete’s tenure.  The common feeling here is that Pete left at least one super bowl appearance on the table.  Your team as currently constituted is not as talented as those teams were.  You are going to stink for three years until you fire him.  These are just facts.

Without the selfish character that is LDT, SD now has a chance to win.  I hate the fact they released that guy.  Who is going to shy away from big moments when we play that team now in the playoffs?

Denver will be better this year.  Adding Jamal Williams is key.  That guy is a load.  For Patriots fans it reminds me of when Ted Washington came into the fold in New England.  Seems like a very solid move on paper. 

Indy is going to be Indy.  But when all is said and done will they be able to close?

Last but not least is us.  We have quite a few holes.  This is the least confident I have been for awhile in a Patriot's team.  Hopefully this will be a great draft.  We need it.
