I think it will be a toss-up with the favorite currently trending down.

Hopefully the Football God is out of the equation just to let them play.

I'm just mature enough that I have the ability to read between the lines on this comment. Of course it was a reference to me. Your denial is just more of you choosing to be argumentative.
If you just woke up this morning feeling like you wanted to argue with someone, maybe you (we) should take it to the NSZ. God knows we have enough differences there to keep us busy for a while.

Your overreaction to his opinion, questioning his ability to comment on others opinions is somewhat commical. In your expectation for others to read between the lines it seems you don't have any ability within yourself there could of be some sarcasm in his post. The post he quoted was overly descriptive and I actually found some humor in his response. I'm sure he didn't mean "calm down or I will **** your mother"

Yep, doesn't matter your from East or West. We all are same human being and we appreciate things which are about the same. However, West women tend to have a bigger breast in general in comparison with East women but the rest is like I said about the same Grass Hopper76!

Go Texans!!!

Interesting recycle, per Boston Herald.

Quote:
Wide receiver Donte Stallworth is set to join the Patriots for the third time, according to a source.

The Patriots have a need at the position due to Julian Edelmanís foot injury, which caused him to leave Sun Life Stadium yesterday with crutches and a walking boot.

Some interesting factoids going into this game.

Quote:
New England Patriots

I donít often include post-game quotes in my analysis, but this one from Bill Belichick really stood out to me. ďItís always good to win. Itís not about the stats, itís about wins.Ē Thatís the core of the Patriots philosophy. With 12 straight winning seasons and nine division titles in the last 10 years, itís clearly been proven right. And this win over Miami was the epitome of that thought process.

No team in the league is more willing to change their offensive approach depending on the opponent. Last week against the Jets, the Patriots had 39 rushes and only 18 completed passes. This week against Miamiís strong run defense, they spent the game throwing very efficient dinks and dunks. Other weeks, itís all about the downfield passing game. Tom Brady and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels live by the cliche ďtake what the defense gives you.Ē

This defense is clearly getting better. The pass rush was there all day. The linebackers did an excellent job stuffing the run and the secondary didnít allow many open receivers. And the playmakers were making plays Ė Brandon Spikes, Aquib Talib, Jerod Mayo, Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich all stepped up. But as the defense has become Super Bowl worthy, there are offensive concerns now Ė particularly up front. OL Dan Connolly got hurt here and the line didnít get much push up front against a quality defensive front.

Brady took four sacks after only one in his previous four games. A good pass rush is kryptonite for New Englandís offense. Bradyís sacks were the primary reason why New Englandís extended streak of OVERS Ė nine in a row dating back to Week 3 Ė finally ended.

The last team to return to the Super Bowl the year after a loss was 1993 Buffalo Bills (and the Ď92 Bills, and the Ď91 Bills). It doesnít happen very often. In fact the only NFL team to reach back-to-back Super Bowls in the last 14 years was the non-spread covering Patriots from Ď03 and Ď04.

I pretty much expect this.
Sounds like a game where "may the best team wins".

I like it.
