Blah, blah, blah

This morning's entry attempts to set the stage for today's big game. It almost sounds like it is written for the uninitiated...those people who woke up this morning and for the first time in a year decided to check the sports pages because they heard something about the local football team playing in a big game today. Nothing original , nothing insightful...We get such analysis and tidbits such as this:

"The Patriots are expected to put a lot of points on the board."

"Patriots fans expect New England to score early and often"

"The Patriots have a lot of players who have been here before."
"[Eli] Manning is the younger brother of Patriots nemesis Peyton Manning"

"The Patriots...attempt to become only the second team in NFL history to complete a season without a loss (the 1972 Miami Dolphins finished 17-0)"
Holy cow - what a waste of space! Absolutely nothing original. Compare this to Kevin Paul Dupont's article on Bill Belichick and ask yourself if Dan is capable of writing a piece like that?

This column was a bit vanilla but it's much better than the smarmy "Yahoo" column before last year's AFCCG.

I expected him to write about the "new" cheating allegations...but I bet that'll be written about tomorrow.

Don't kid yourself: Kevin Paul Dupont sucks too.
