Full story: Lowell Sun 11

Yeah, that's it loudmouth. The Pats wouldn't just be smart about not getting their starters injured. No. You're right, it's a big conspiracy to avoid playing teams like yours that aren't good enough to control their own destiny. Please tell me you can't reproduce. The gene pool already has too much chlorine.

True. The Pats don't have the depth to overcome a lot of injuries.

Actually the Steelers are horrible this year, the Pats would rather play them than the Jets, Baltimore, Denver or even Oakland.

Ain't that the truth. Add in the internal dissension, and this is a fragile team heading into the postseason.

Maybe so, maybe not. We've just collected two wins versus playoff teams (GB and BAL).

Sorry, LaMarr, it's not all about the Steelers. If you controlled your own playoff hopes on your own, you wouldn't have anything to whine about. We won 11 last year, without Tom, and still did not make the playoffs. We weren't whining. And if Pittsburg had to play in the wildcard game last year without Big Ben (because you are too good to protect your starters), you might not have made it to the Superbowl.

thanks to some late penalty calls .... the ref has decided most of your wins ...
Please provide evidence. There were some incorrect calls against the Steelers as well, or do you just pick and choose which apply to your satisfaction?

I agree with all the chowder-dribblers that Woodley's comments aren't going to have any effect on Brady and Belichick. They might prompt Ocho Cinco to get out there and prance for an extra quarter or two, though. And in any case, I think the Bengal backups are probably capable of beating the Jets.
