I find it interesting that they are "similar" players at this stage of their careers. One of them misses tackles, because his timing's a little off, he doesn't pack the punch he once had, & players tend to leap frog him far too often. The other misses tackles because he gets trucked, ran over, & at times avoids contact.
Hmmm... I don't think that's similar at all.

It's rare nowadays that the best team in football wins the Super Bowl. Who'd have thunk the Ravens had a shot at the end of December? Other than the shot that all teams have by making the play-offs. Not that I'm hating on the Ravens, but I thought they would be 1 & Done, especially since their first game was against the team I thought was the best in the AFC at the time. Denver.
We don't need the Patriots to slide (I know you said we needed them to be off their game last season for us to stand a chance to beat them & you were right.. I was wrong). What we need is for our guys to man up when they need to, on both sides of the ball when it counts.
