    The golden rule: he who has the gold makes the rules. From the moment I heard the Kraft story I said the video will never see the light of day. Surprise, surprise.

    the owner “own” the league. Goodwill works for them.

    I think this I where a lot of people forget it isn’t Goodells league. He is just the face of the owners.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    true.......
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.
    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.

    I was already counting on NE to get one of the slots because of their D. As much credit as people have wanted to give Brady, NE success has always been built on Billy B's D.

    But how many games did Tom win late in the 4th or OT? D was a big part, but TB was a huge factor. The D wasn't the prime reason for a W vs. ATL in the SB a few years ago, down 28-3.

    I haven't checked their stats but seems to me NE defense benefitted from weak opponents last season. Dunno.

    Yes. Their D was very usually stout and forced turnovers and FG’s but the second half of last year they stunk.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    low risk exercise for the pats. will be interesting to see if BB just 'punked' the rest of the league again or if the 30 teams who took a pass on cam (I heard the stains were interested) were correct.
    2014 MNF EXEC CHAMPION!!!
