Nothing benefits a wide receiver like having Tom Brady flinging the ball your way.


Belichick could probably line the Bruins backup goalie out wide in the Super Bowl and his over/under would be 50 yards receiving...

Side note:
The Patriots have two Pro Bowl starters this year. That's the fewest of any of the previous six New England teams to make the Super Bowl under Belichick. And they're still 16-2.

Yes, yes and yes.

Please go over to the Buffalo Bills thread and explain that to my negative nancy fellow board member Thundarr. I can't seem to get that through to him.

Pats fans, will Belichick defer if he wins the coin toss? I've seen a few Patriot games this year but I don't remember them throwing many corner or safety blitzs at the QB. No doubt there will be some but how often did those corners/safeties get to the QB?

I don't think so. That decision was specific to the Steelers. Belichick trusts his defense and I think he will want to set that tome early and try to take away Atlanta's first possession. But then again, with Belichick you never know.

Yeah, the Pats always defer so that they can score going into half-time and starting the third Q.

Congrats to the Pats! 14-2 after a pretty good year in 2015? Amazing!

No doubt the best team in the league. That is who usually wins the Super Bowl. As it should be.

I still may root for the underdog this year. Seen enough Pats in the SB.

It's been confirmed that the Patriots and Raiders will play at some point in Mexico City next season. Oakland will be giving up another home game to play in Mexico City.

Patriots will play Raiders in Mexico City in 2017 | ProFootballTalk

This was kind of a surprise to me, but maybe for Pats fans not so much? I'm still waiting for Packers to play in London!

This news had been leaked earlier in the year so not so much of a surprise....its an away game anyway for Pats

For Raiders, do they even have a home? Not so much for them to give up a "home" game in a city they plan on abandoning anyway....

Figured Pats fans knew about it, and no doubt an away game! Popular teams don't want to give up their home games and some teams can't fill a stadium unless a popular team is coming to town to play!
