The players are great, Belicheck is a great coach, although I don't like his willingness to cheat.

Very well said.

so if your team went 16-0 and didn't win the Superbowl it would mean nothing, too?

It only means nothing to those whos team did not make it.

Look at it this way. If my team was not going into the playoffs, I would not even watch the Superbowl. I could care less.

Same with baseball or basketball. Hockey dont even count. The few people left who watch that all live north of us.

I could care whether or not he cheats, but for great coaches of the season like McCarthy, and rookies like that Dallas Coach, and Mike Tomlin, to be riped and the honor of coach of the year given to a man who out right cheated. Who knows how long he's been cheating, could this go all the way back to the three superbowl rings, questions like this will always plague us and the league forever.

How long have you had this built up anger, and does your therapist know?

Hell hath no fury as Bill Belechick scorned. With the Pats off this weekend , he should be able to convince his club that it is them against the world-again. Props to the Pats for coming back big in the 4th quarter and taking care of business, and also to Eli Manning for giving them a hell of a battle. It was easily the most entertaining TV game this year IMO. One other thing; great post game comments by Tom Brady, one of the class guys in the league.

It must be real hard living with a sore loser. Maybe you should try the Thrashers. They will keep you calmer.

Nah, the Baltimore v. New England game was much more entertaining.... Though the officiating down the stretch was a tad suspect (Not saying the calls weren't necessarily correct, but more a matter of whether you make some of those calls in key situations like that....).

Either way, that was a better game IMO. Baltimore dominated for most of the game and found a way to lose anyway...

How one of the classiest QBs in the league remains so with one of the most classless coaches in the league is beyond me, but........

I mean one of the resident Bellichick ball-washers here please explain to me why he's a jagoff and snubs Tony Dungy after the game??? If you can't be civil with Dungy you have to really be an ultra-pr*ck in my guesstimation....

LOL, its not anger but to reward him coach of the year, thats just like giving McNabb best quaterback of the year, after missing half the season because of injuries, or even better giving Vick MVP. Bobby Patrino was a better suite for coach of the year, you just dont reward someone for cheating. And I hate Hockey, and the Braves are a disappointment!
