I wished the Patriots did what they did to Jets yesterday in their first encounter. It is one thing being confident. But it pisses off people when someone is really arrogant without achieving anything. I would have been fine if the Saints were as cocky as the Jets. I read some sports writers support Rex Ryan’s cockiness by saying he is trying to change the Jet’s losing culture by bringing in a new attitude. Well, if he was trying to do that by pissing off rest of the teams, their coaches and fans then I think he has accomplished this. They barely go through their previous 4 games and finally ended up in the hands of a team that is peaking. I am still weary of their defense though.
Even after two years I still can’t get the 2007 super bowl out of my head though. I hope they win this one, now that they have lost a few and probably would not have the burden of going 19-0 on their shoulders.
I was a little surprised when I read that Randy Moss has been traded to the Vikings. It was not shocking though. It has been a drag for the last couple of years after the initial fireworks. I believe he still has got the talent, just disgruntled with the way things are run by coach BB.
With Wes back and the TEs stepping up, Pats may probably not miss him as much. But I think the big play phobia of the teams playing NE might be put aside, at least for now. Wes will become an easy target for the defense since there will not be two players that they need to double team.
Favre got his wish fulfilled, even if it is just for one season. One has to wait n see how that combo works out though. It is probably fitting for Randy to get back to where it all started. It will make a good story for his HoF career.
