Thats how confident I am this is NOT gonna happen. Brady will grace the front page of Sportaphile if his team can win every game this season.
The media hysteria with New England is getting unbearable, last week the topic was Brett Favre’s divinity, now they’ve moved on to the immortal Patriots. How has everyone forgotten this very same team was caught cheating four weeks ago? I know it’s a good team, I know it’s a great team, I know they’re playing amazing football, but to crown them as undefeated after five games is a little much.
“This is the best offense I’ve ever seen.” – Keyshawn Johnson
During last nights broadcast of Football In America, Chris Collinsworth said this was “maybe the best team I’ve ever seen“. Really, Chris? After five games? What is it about broadcast journalism that makes everyone want to overreact and draw wild comparisons to get their point across? Do we all fully comprehend how tough it is to go undefeated in an NFL season? Do we all recognize that it’s only happened once in the history of the league?
Every year, around week 8 or so theres an undefeated team and everyone starts yapping about breaking the 1972 Dolphins record. Like clockwork that undefeated team always succumbs to the pressures and loses. The law of averages and history is on my side here, the Patriots will not win out.
The further illustrate my devotion to anti-Patriotism, I will be rooting for Indianapolis to defeat Brady & Co on November 4th. Some of my visitors may remember my declaration of contempt for all things Peyton Manning last month. But I will make an exception in this case.
