Patriots Dominance: Careful What You Wish For

Marcus WycheCorrespondent IOctober 29, 2007

IconI'm so tired of hearing how the Patriots ran the score up on the Redskins.

Isn't it the job of the offense to put points on the board? Isn't it the job of the defense to stop the offense from putting points on the board?

If the Redskins didn't want the Patriots to hang a 50 Burger on them, why didn't they stop them?

Oh, that's right—they're not as good as they thought they were.

I'm not sure whose offense is worse—the Redskins or the hapless Ravens. Okay, I guess I shouldn't be so hard on the 'Skins, but if you ask me—and I know you didn't—Bill Belichick is doing exactly what he should do:

He has his players play the whole 60 minutes, and thumbs his nose at the NFL for even suggesting that his past championships were tainted.

In my eyes, this is a prime example of getting what you ask for. When the Videogate story broke, many NFL observers questioned the Patriots' legitimacy. Now, Belichick is sending a message to the rest of the league:

If you play us, be ready for the butt-kicking of a lifetime.

So, I say to the Colts, Bills, Eagles, Ravens, Steelers, Jets, Dolphins, and Giants—you'd better bring your A game, or hope the Pats' bus breaks down...because you're all in real trouble.

Good luck—you're going to need it!
