Patriot's Vs The Worst Backups In The NFL.
December 19th, 2010
This is one of those games where
it is a lot easier to be a fan than a coach. I can sit here and say there is
Our defense has been playing better lately, and their defense has had a better overall season. The big difference is the offence. Our offense is the best in the NFL, even Marshal Faulk, who proclaimed his hatred for the Pats live on National TV said, “Brady is the League MVP.” The Packers offense is a mere remnant of the offense they had hoped to unleash on the NFL this season.
These to teams are an interesting opposites of themselves. In the beginning of the season the Packers looked like legit Super Bowl contenders, and the Pats clearly didn’t, unless you lived your life with Patriot blinders on. I didn’t really pick a number this year, but I kept saying they would be lucky to go 10-6. So I guess I picked them for 9 wins, and I think that was a good objective number. The looked like a mostly average team with two advantages, Brady and BB. Little did I know that those two would turn into the two biggest advantages any team had in the entire NFL this year. Most people now have Brady as the clear cut choice for NFL MVP, and I have been saying for weeks that no coach has done a better job with their talent then BB, and it is not even close. No team has come close to improving as much as the Pats as the season went along. Meanwhile at the Packer cave, the exact opposite has occurred. No team has gotten worse as the season went along as the Packers.
The team we are facing tonight is
not a legit contender. They are not even a legit Playoff team. They are just
a mug. I’m not trying to disparage their coach or their team. It is a
matter of injury. You lose the leader of your defense Nick Barnett for the
season. Sure they have some nice receivers, but when you lose your brilliant
young tight end. Your Pro Bowl Running back, and I pleaded with them at
draft time on my silly website to draft a backup for Ryan Grant, and they
didn’t listen. Like I said earlier, it’s not just the loss of a player
that matters, it is the quality of the back up that might be more important.
Just look at Connolly. If he didn’t develop into a good O-Linemen where
would out offense be? The Packers
are not the same team that started the season. The final straw is the loss
of Aaron Rogers. Without
