Brady is a baby who rips his chinstrap off if anything doesn't go his way. Even when his sucky team is stacking the points, he still whines to the officials and acts all huffy.
That is one classless team, folks.
More late breaking news: Patsies still suck.
How about a Patsies SB with an asterisk next to it:
Patriots win 2007 SB*

Your thesis was both good and original. Sadly, what was good was not original and what was original was not good.

so......apologies to the fine people in NE this type of INDY "So-Called" fan is not truly indicative of the more refined...in our great state...please don't judge too harshly. Back to football though...I've said this before as a Colts fan we got beat by a much better team against the Pats...much better. And lets not forget that this "Superteam" did not just appear they evolved.

“Please remember that the Patriots won their first three Super Bowls with flawed teams.”
Those flawed teams also won 21 games in a row counting two playoff wins and a Super Bowl victory over Carolina.
Their 2001 champion had the worst defense of the Super Bowl era (24th in the NFL). Their 2003 champion had the worst rushing attack of the Super Bowl era (27th in the NFL). Their 2004 champion ranked 17th in passing and 21st in special teams.
Those flaws are gone, this year, they excel on offense, defense and special teams.
The Patriots rank first in the NFL offensively in yards and points. They rank second in passing and seventh in rushing. Defensively, the Patriots rank sixth against the pass, sixth against the run and fourth overall. They're tied for sixth in the NFL in sacks, sixth in takeaways and fifth in points allowed.
Tom Brady is ready to break the NFL season record for touchdown passes (has 33 this season already). Randy Moss, Donte Stallworth and Wes Welker give him the best set of receivers of the decade.
“16” different Patriots made tackles in the 24-20 victory over the Colts. Five NE defenders have been to the Pro Bowl, they have a LB named Mike Vrabel…
...we should be thankful Tom Brady kneeled down for us in the fourth quarter like he did instead of us being resentful. Let's "try" to pick up the pieces of this broken season and forge ahead we owe it to these guys...go Colts!!!

Sorry for the ranting post but I'm so so sick and tired of Patriots fans posting on Indystar Topix newslines. No intelligent discussion. I think there's been like one Patriots fan who actually posted something honest. However, I've yet to see a single posting from any fan saying they are dismayed at what Bellichick did (taping). Instead it's all denial and trash talking.

For a while, I didn't post anything because I was so sick of hearing Patsy fans go on and on. I checked on the Boston Globe site and could find literally no postings by Colts fans on the Patriots.

So I'm fed up. I used to try to semi intelligent stuff (pretty much the best I could muster), but now I've slunk down to posting basically what the Patsy fans post: idiotic rantings. Tit for tat. Eye for eye.

So - I beg your pardon to the Colts fans, and to the one or two intelligent Pats fans who post here.

Go Blue!
