WTF!?!?!?! He has the Pats with the best record in the AFC!!! ALKJSDFIOE:RKLSJEE!!!!! I don't even know how to respond to that! That's one of those things that are so stupid, if you think about them too much your head explodes! Yeah, a team who's super bowl core is old, who lost their top 2 WRs, who's running game is depending on old washed up Corey Dillon and a rookie (who won't even start), who continues to lose big pieces of that offensive line that protected brady so well during their super bowl runs, who's secondary was what, second worst in the league last year? and who's linebacker corps are getting so old and depleted they had to bring back stroke/injury raddled Bruschi and RETIRED Junior Seau, and oh yeah, lost the guy who wone ALL of their big games, Adam Vinatieri, and was 10-6 last year, for the WORST RECORD OF ANY PLAYOFF TEAM last year, is somehow going to suddenly have the best record in the AFC??? What is this moron smoking? And he's worried about our lack of depth at RB and O-line? He gives the super bowl champions a record of 8-8, but the pathetic pats get 12-4?? Oh, it's because as long as they have brady and belidick they're always going to be good. Yeah. So then why didn't he say "as long as the Steelers have Roethlisberger and Cowher, they'll always be good"? After all, Roethlisberger actually has a team to play with, and Cowher has one to coach. Which is more than I can say for brady and belichick.
And proof that he knows nothing is that he says "Verron Haynes still has to prove himself to the coaches." Wow, that's funny, because I always thought that when your coach praises you all the time, and constantly mentions you when people ask who will fill a certain role, that usually means you've proven yourself to them. But I must have been wrong. All those times people asked about Parker and Staley, and Cowher always reminded them of Verron too, that must have meant that Haynes HADN'T proven himself yet. And here I was thinking it meant Cowher liked him. Silly me.
And as for the ravens, if they had gotten McNair 2 years ago, THEN you could consider them a playoff team. Now though, the offensive improvement McNair brings will only offset the defensive decline, and they'll end up being just as good (or should I say bad) as last year.
And he has the Bengals in the super bowl. Yeah, and I bet he'd also say, in a game between the Colts and Pats, that the Pats are better because defense wins championships. So obviously the "we can't tackle anything" Bengals would be in the super bowl!
God damn! This guy makes ESPN look good!
(Oh, and I like how he lists all the things he was HORRIBLY WRONG about last year at the beginning of his article, lol)
