patriots getting ahead of themselves

If anything, that's the exact opposite of what the Pats do.  You rarely see the Pats make gestures like this or go out an do trash talking in the media.  This is just some fan or a few fans who had some extra bucks and decided to have a little fun

I agree 100% 21isSuperman. The Patriots never say any derogatory about a team or player publicly. Typically, they praise Flacco. Sing sweet complements of him all over the airways. Pour metaphoric perfume all over him in the locker room media sessions,  & then confuse, sack, & demolish his psyche & body all over Gillette Field in Foxboro. Like a beautiful who turns on her feminine charms of seduction you then & then takes you back to private room to throw you around in a bloodthirsty MMA cage match. Kill their adversary with kindness & then pulverize them. It's their stellar football business model & it actually works well for them.

 

Regarding Ray Lewis, I agree his years of superior play as a LB in the NFL deserve a more esteemed level of appreciation that than sign makes a mockery of. Robert Kraft & Bill Belichick had nothing to do with this short sighted act of stupidity. I can promise you that.

I never understand why a business slams a HOF NFL player with a giant countdown sign anyway just to generate business. It's counterproductive, foolish, & can easily backfire. Teams may need additional motivation to put their warrior paint on during game day once in awhile, but blatant disrespect for 1 of the best LB's this league has ever produced is not a wise move. Ever! Again NE as a franchise played no part in this disrespectful sign in my view. I blame the private citizen or corporation that paid for the sign not the NE organization. The vast majority of Foxboro fans admire Ray Lewis as a competitor too who never quits as well.

Just so everyone is aware, Clear Channel is a national media company that happens to have an office in Boston. I don't believe any fans paid for the billboard, or raised money for it, and the Patriots certainly would not participate in something like that. Ever.

 

So this is one national business responsible for it... not even just a Boston-based thing. Which struck me as odd. Don't they also have billboards down in Maryland?

 

They obviously did it for the publicity. Success there.

 

But they in no way "speak" for the team, Patriots fans, etc. This is just like the Dan Shaughnessy article about the Texans last week. No like-y.

I don't know, I think the Broncos got ahead of themselves more than anybody. The Seahawks second, all you ever heard about was how both of them were going to the Super Bowl.

Right, even Manning admitted they were "planning to play next week" in the postgame news conference. So not his style.

    • 1 less than glowing complement about our GM does not mean that I am throwing out the baby with the bathwater CC1. You will recall that I complemented Grigs on Kelly, Anderson, & Parry correct?    Not exactly demanding that Grigs be tarred & feathered am I now? It's a little hard to make the case that SW1 is Mr. "negativity" after that. Also, there's a difference between crucifying a GM & pointing out that no front office execute gets gold stars for failures that never came to fruition BTW. The NFL isn't Kindergarten; No one gets a participation ribbon for just trying or showing up. 
    • So you have joined the ranks of the negativity just completely overlooking the positive?
    • Thanks for the prediction Clubber Lang AKA Mr. T.  So, that's what it means when they say a picture is worth a thousand words... Bah! Ha! Ha! Way to flip the tables there M-432. Comedic genius that I never saw coming. Take a bow please.
    • And that right there says it all, doesn't it? Nobody cares if all our GM produces is duds on the line now do they?    Placeholders that flame out or never materialize mean absolutely nothing. I will give Grigs props for Ryan Kelly our Center, Henry Anderson, & David Parry all good selections on his part. 
    • I felt horrible for #18 when he got humiliated on the field by the Seahawks in the SB during the 2013 season.    I disagree with that female professors assessment that Peyton always answers tough questions after a devastating loss because he never took ownership for his less than stellar performance during that Lombardi loss either during the post game press conference or on the David Letterman Show a few weeks later. He used the "we" didn't have our best game tonight analogy vs "I" could have played better tonight & came up short line in the end perspective.    Now, to his credit, Manning was much better in 2015 acknowledging when he played lousy throwing too many picks & I respected this candor in his final season winning his 2nd SB ring. It was nice to see the Sheriff end his NFL career on a high note with no regrets.   Peyton's always been gifted when it comes to humility & that guy could sell ice to an eskimo. He just has a knack for moving things on TV. It's no wonder corporations love him. I'm happy to hear that he made that family's day.
