I don't have a doubt in my mind that the if someone on the Patriots team had a custom jacket made and then a few other players wanted one too that could happen but you'd never hear about it. Nobody would do a story for the paper about it. Nobody would suggest that they all wear their jackets to a road game and then make a big deal about that.


They've been there before. Bob's guys never have and don't appear to be threatening to change that condition anytime soon. It tells you where their heads are and what their minds are on. It ain't winning football games. Not to the degree it needs to be.
True. I thought the same thing the year each receiver had his own TD dance. Such a big deal was made of it that I thought it was embarrassing. To me it made them look like they truly hadn't been there before.

A lot of that is just me though. Most fans suck that stuff up.
