bmaninc;4512339 said:You overestimate the Patriots. They smell of one and done. They haven't given up less than 350 yards to an opponent yet.
bmaninc;4512420 said:If I had to pick between the 49'ers and the Patriots, I would take the 49'ers. They'll get a home playoff game, and they have some semblance of a defense.The Patriots look like the Colts of old. All pass, barely any run, no defense to speak of. Losing Mayo is going to have no effect on the defense. The reason? They're already the worst, can't get any worse than that.I've read macamatic's post three times and it still makes no sense to me. I guess there's always next post, sunshine.

macamatic;4512979 said:I'm saying "one and done" makes no sense. "One and done" implies that they're like the 07 Giants, achieving something great once and never being able to pull it off again. They've won three Super Bowls in four years and went to another to cap off an otherwise undefeated season. And with respect to this season, since 2004 was admittedly a pretty long time ago, they've already beat down three teams by double digits. To be "one and done" you need to have done something once. I'm not sure what that is for a team that, save for a terrible showing in Buffalo, is an absolute juggernaut on offense (by the way, Brady still threw four touchdowns).Will the Pats win the Super Bowl? Maybe not. Hell, only one team can so the odds are pretty rough. But from what I've seen, they're for real. If they keep losing, then I'll buy it, but when I see a team that is winning by an average of two TDs per game, it's going to be tough to convince me they're not actually that good, at least until we see them play some more. Honestly it's way too early in the season to be determining who's a true contender anyway. Oh, and they're 9th in rushing - not what I would call "barely any".

HeyRiles;4513081 said:One game, done in the playoffsThat's what he meant and I didn't realize there was any other way to interpret that
bmaninc;4513105 said:I'm gonna start calling you Vanderjerk. You're missing the point, and it makes me smile.You're basically telling me what I am supposed to mean when I say one and done. I've never seen it said in the context you're using. You're just making yourself look like a tool.
macamatic;4516414 said:That's not my understanding of the term. I don't care enough to look it up, but if it's what Riles said, it makes even less sense. Prognosticating playoff performance from four weeks of play? I guess that's why the Saints went to the SB last season. Wait...

Thanks for the contributions that you made to the sport and society in general. (Al was the first owner to require his team to stay together, no separate hotels for white and black players.) RIP Al.
