It was harder than anticipated, but the Pats finished off the regular season undefeated, scraping past the Giants, 38-35. In the process, Tom Brady set the record for TD passes in a single season (50) and Randy Moss set the record for TD catches in a single season (23).
It’s an impressive run, which needs to be capped with a Super Bowl win to make this a truly historic team. It also brings up a bunch of questions…
Are the Raiders the dumbest organization in football? They traded Moss to NE for a 4th round draft pick. I say YES.
Did the Jets and Spygate provide the emotional spark for the unbeaten season? I say NO. Much has been made of the incident, but the Pats were a dominant team to begin with and a bunch of players, including Moss, had something to prove.
Are the Giants defensive coaches and players really that dumb? I say YES. With a chance to blow up the Pats record-breaking run, they allowed Moss to run untouched down the field to catch the go-ahead TD in the fourth quarter. I guess they didn’t expect Brady to throw deep to Moss, since he hadn’t done it much all year.
Will the Pats win the Super Bowl? I still say YES. But I won’t be surprised if they don’t. The Chargers, Colts and Jaguars all have the elements to defeat them.
I hope everybody has enjoyed the holiday season. Have a safe and Happy New Year celebration.
THERE IT IS!
