    Is it bad of me...

    to kind of hope Brady or Moss gets popped a good one when they are still in the game up 42-10 against Buffalo? And Bele-runemup-check is still going on 4th down? If Buffalo doesn't start tee-ing off on some guys, I'd be real suprised.

    Not that I condone this sort of thing. Just saying that if a situation warrented this, this could be the time.

    I say run the score up. Brady's my FFL QB and I'll take all the points I can get.

    Re: Is it bad of me...

    I think its ironic that everyone is saying its bad sportsmanship to run up the score. What would teeing off on a player be then? I don't think it will happen, because purposely injuring a player is way worse sportsmanship than running up the score.

    Re: Is it bad of me...

    I really hate the Pats but it's almost comical at this point. They have so little regard for the rest of the NFL and nobody can do anything about it -ha! I'd be loving it if I were a Pats fan.

    The problem in wishing for something bad to happen, is that the NFL is too classy for anybody to do that. It's a big coaching fraternity, well -except Bellicheck has exiled himself now. My brother just lamented on the phone that the only player that would definitely take a shot at a Brady or Moss to pay them back (Rodney Harrison) is safely in the Pat's own secondary now! :)

    The Colts and Steelers and some other teams could just as well have scored 50 on a few occasions this year but they shut it down in respect to the other team, and league. It's so comical now watching the Pats say F you to each team they play.

    Ellis Hobbs just returned an INT for a TD to make it 56-7

    Re: Is it bad of me...

    If the Patriots want to leave those guys in, then buffalo has no reason to not just do an all out blitz and pop him one. Whats the difference in being down 32 and 39?

    I hate the Patriots, so from that perspective, I would have no problem with it....

    But I suppose Buffalo should respect the New England players, even if their coach doesn't deserve it.

    My new theory is that Bill Belichick is a serious fantasy football player and Brady is on his team as well so he needs the fantasy points as well.

    The Colts will take them out in the playoffs, so I'm not too worried about it. I really wouldn't mind seeing Bob Sanders put Moss out of the game.

    Okay, not a Patriots fan here but what evidence could you possibly have to think that the Colts are going to win in January?? Just a hunch?

    Re: Is it bad of me...

    At the professional level I've got no problem with a team running up the score. But if I'm a Patriots player and Brady blows out a knee in the 4th quarter up by 5 TD's I'd be pretty ticked.

    Re: Is it bad of me...

    Bottom line is if team don't like it then STOP THEM! Personally I don't have a problem with it and I'm not even a Pats fan. They are a damn good team this year and I think it's a damned if you do damned if you don't situation if you "ease up" on a team just because you are up big already. Parcells talked about this a couple weeks ago how he's been in those situations where if you just knee the ball and give it to them, go for it, or whatever no matter what someone is not going to be happy with the play call and thinks that you are just showing up the other team. Just stick to your game plan. Everyone likes to whine when your team is getting your butt handed to you but the bottom is your defense isn't getting the job done and that's on you not the other team.

    I agree and I am no fan of New England.

    This is Professional Football! This is the NFL! If you don't like it go play intramurals, brother- go play intramurals!

    These coaches and athletes get payed millions of dollars to play football, so do your job. NE should never let up. The fans pay good money to watch these games-they don't want to watch the Patriots quit in the second half.

    In the business world would you ever hear anyone say- "We are making too much money. We're just too successful-it's embarrassing our competitors. We shouldn't try so hard."

    Everybody stop you're whining and if you can't stop them just sit back and enjoy watching history in the making.

    Ask the '92-'93 Oilers if they should have stopped running up the score on the Bills in the playoff game when they were up by 32.
