Patriots

What now? After a loss to Miami some say it looks bleak for us Pats fans and that the Patriot Dynasty is over, or at least at a hiatus. But I disagree and not only because I'm a Pats fan but because isn't this exactly how our dynasty began. Everyone remember the mighty Mo Lewis' hit on Bledsoe and it looked like it was all over for a strong Pats team, but then came this backup QB named Brady who was picked not in the 1st or 2nd round but in the 6th and who didn't start at Michegan but backed up Brian Greise and only played a few minutes of garbage time here and there, but the Pats drafted him and had enough confidence after Beledsoe's injury to start him and they won a super bowl and became one of the most successful football teams and dynastys in history. (behind the Packers and Niners to name a few of coarse) We all know the story and many of you hate the Patriots and Brady for whatever reason and I am not saying that Matt Cassel or Kevin O'Connel is going to be Tom Brady and win the super bowl, But it's possible. I believe that because this team was built for success, because this team is coached by Bill Belicheck and we know how to win football games that you can never EVER count the Pats out. Even after a loss to the lowly Dolphins dont underestimate the Pats, we eat our humble pie each week and remember we love being the underdogs.
