PATS KEEP ROLLING
Like them or not, watching greatness is special–and a lot of fun. So it was on Sunday as the Pats ripped through the Steelers winning by 21 points. Most of it was thanks to a young safety who should have kept his mouth closed during the week. I loved it when Brady was talking to the kid after Moss burned him in the end zone.
“To tell you the truth,” Smith said, “if [Brady] was talking to me, I didn’t notice him.”
What a joke. Maybe because his head was still spinning. He also got roasted on the play to Gaffney. How fun was that? Moss threw back a duck to Brady and he caught it as if it was a tight spiral. Then he merely loaded up and let it fly. Smith was out in front, tried to recover but couldn’t knock it away. It looked as if he should have made the play.
Then even Belichick had some words after the game. Speaking about Smith he said, “He’s just not very good. I’m sure they would like to have [Polamalu] back in there. He’s a good player, a really good player. I mean, those two guys…..”
Dan Pompeii writes: After the game Smith spoke without remorse, claiming the Steelers were beaten by “gadget plays.” He even talked about getting another shot at the Patriots in the postseason. He really should hope for another fate.
No doubt. And is it any better to be beaten on gadget plays?
I’ll tell you what I want to see–what we all probably want to see. Pats/Colts in the AFC Championship and Cowboys/Pack in the NFC title game. My Super Bowl preference is Pats/Boys, but Pats/Pack would be special too.
