Telling stat: The New England Patriots All-World (formerly All-Thug, purportedly All-Rehabilitated) wide receiver Randy Moss was held to a total of two two! catches in the Pats playoff wins against the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Diego Chargers. This was planned. As one TV sports sage wagged, sagely, the Patriots are so deep that Moss was used as a decoy, drawing a shroud of double coverage and opening up the rest of the field for Joe Montana Jr., QB Tom Brady. It was perilous strategy by the Jags and the Bolts, but what isnt? The Pats are 18-0 19-zip if you count their victory in Super Bowl XLII.
Oh, oops, they havent won yet. Oh, oops, yes, they have, though the final numbers have yet to be posted on University of Phoenix Stadiums Herculean scoreboard. Eli Manning and the fated-darling New York Giants aint gonna beat these Cinderella manglers.
