They Are Who We Thought They Were

Here is the link to that great video from "The Soup". Here are my thoughts on this football weekend and the basic lack of surprises, just like every week:
  • The Patriots are in the driver's seat for the Super Bowl. It was a great comeback and I don't take anything away from them. Just answer me if anyone would give Brady a chance to win if Moss and Welker were out, which happened after Anthony Gonzalez (not anywhere close to as good as Welker) got hurt and Harrison missed the game. I don't care who won the game; the race for the best QB in football (overall, not just this year) is not a race as far as I'm concerned.
  • The Bengals and the Eagles are pathetic underachievers. Dare I say they've stopped trying? The defenses are atrocious and put them in situations where they become one-dimensional offensively (which the Eagles always are, thanks to Andy Reid's hatred of the run).
  • Adrian Peterson really does look like a man among boys. Watch him run -- he looks head and shoulders bigger than anyone else and it looks like the defense is running in slow motion while he's going full speed. Last year, LT was getting praise as the greatest back of all time and the mantle has already passed.
  • Football is just really boring this year. With the big game now past, what do we have to look forward to? The AFC title game. That's it. Everything else is just a meaningless vehicle for fantasy stats.
