09:03 pm - Running it up
At least the Pats can't be accused of running up the score.

This weekend was not a huge success for me. I did get a bit of cleaning done, and some bead organizing, but I've had a migraine for most of the weekend. I wanted to get some shopping done and that didn't happen. The Patriots decided that the world was tired of watching them blow out the opponents and decided to play from behind, Indy style. It worked.

It was a good game. Colts defense got a bit tired there near the end, and likely figured that being up 2 scores with 9 minutes to go was enough cushion...

At least we can now stop all the BS talk about the 2007 Patriots being the "best team ever to be assembled in football". This game showed that the Pats were indeed human when they have to play a good team.

(Case in point: Coming into this week, the Patriots' opponents had a winning percentage of 41%, while the Colts' opponents had a winning percentage of 54%. The Patriots' schedule gets a little bit more difficult down the stretch -- 46%, but the Colts' still remains high.)

Well, I never believe any "best team evah" hyperbole. You'd never appreciate the REAL best team ever until history has had a chance to put into perspective. And anyone who tells you different is either a total homer, or a media slug pumping up a story.

That said, I do think this is a quality football team. I know bad calls are part of sports, but the Pats got a few bad breaks in this game, and still ended up on top. (The holding call that moved Indy from midfield to the red zone, for one; and not getting a defensive holding call against Indy later in the game for another.) On the other hand, they had some good defence, like the tip on the first Indy field goal attempt, and the Payton sacks.

Indy's defence is stellar and I think I've been saying that for awhile. They play brilliantly and it's always kind of a pleasure to watch them, even though I'm not an Indy fan by any means. I still feel it was their defence, MUCH more than their offense, that got them to the Superbowl last year, and they haven't lost anything on that this year. I think they got to the Pats offense as much as anyone this year will and probably more.

In short, if the power had to go out last night (and obviously it did), I'm glad it waited for the Dallas game. I think I would have cried if we'd lost it earlier.
