What is really important is that the SEC lost last night, making them 0-2 in BCS games this year.  Maybe all the SEC talk can quiet down in the off-season, but I doubt it.

It's not like they haven't earned their praise. If this is an off-year for them they are doing alright.

Yes, they certainly earned their distinguished title of best conference of the most convoluted championship system ever created.  It'll be fine, though.  Next year, with ESPN creating the SEC network for 37 quintillion dollars, they will be sure to have two to four teams in the "playoff" every year.  Really, they should just make an all-SEC playoff, because we all know they are the best anyway.

Sorry OSU :(

Seriously now. How many snaps does Deion Branch see with Indy or is he just there for game-planning?

At the same time, Pats defense is more depleted.  Brandon Spikes is done.  The middle of that defense is looking awfully soft right now.  Hopefully Luck doesn't torch you with 5 TDs.

It's gonna be a good game tomorrow. It is supposed to rain in Foxboro. I think this gives the Patriots an advantage if they can keep up what Blount has been doing, four touchdowns in two games with over 260 yards rushing. Colts haven't been the best at defending the rush.

I like Blount a lot. He reminds me of a smaller, faster Jerome Bettis. Go Pats. I want Luck to shave his neck beard.

If their run game is strong, their play action is strong. I read this today:

24.6 percent of Brady's passing attempts came via play action. On those passing plays, Brady accumulated a 99.8 passer rating.

And because he went to Oregon and punched a Boise St. player in the face on national TV.

EDIT:  Just in case anyone was interested...

The Pats looked solid tonight.  I am still undecided if it means they are really good, or if the AFC is generally weak.

SF and SEA on a collision course for the Superbowl.  To me, next week's game is the Superbowl.  I don't think anyone in the AFC can play with either team.
