    Tom Brady stays healthy: New England Patriots champs

    Seems like a sure thing to me.

    Most likely a team to bet on 1st half every game to win ATS.

    Patriots window is closing. I don't think they win it this year or for a long time.

    This is an exciting Patriots team. It is not the defensive powerhouse of old, but the guys on D are capable, and the team still has veteran leaders at important positions. Even if they've lost a step, unlike their Super Bowl Winning teams, their offense is insanely potent when operated with a full deck. Throw in the best coach in the game, who happens to be one of the best defensive minded head coaches in the game, and I kinda like New England to at least have a very good chance to lock up the #1 seed.

    You guys gonna trust Rivers + Turner, or Manning + his new coach come playoff time more than Belichick + Brady? Yeah yeah, more players define ballgames, but when the pressures on the line and the game is close it'll be QB+Head coach that can either tank or carry a team in the 4th Q.

    The Patriots are the 4th best team in the AFC behind Steelers, Ravens and Chargers. They are also a couple NFC teams better than them. I'm looking forward to big spreads favoring the Patriots so I can fade them again. With so many squares following the NFL this year it will be very profitable for me as usual.

    The Giants won the game, but it was close and let's not forget New England still found a way to score when it mattered most to take the lead with <2 minutes left, but the Giants answered..

    Personally I find how New England drove the length of the field to be more impressive and efficient, there were no flags on the Giants final drive despite the clear, clear holding on that 'David Tyree' helmet catch, Eli would've been sacked or a flag thrown if this was a 3rd Q play, but zebra's didn't want to dictate the out come. Also, the play-clock was malfunctioning that final drive giving the Giants extra time, all moot if Asante Samuel caught that game ending interception but the point is the game was a low-scoring battle, let's not act like the Giants were the clear side by any stretch of the imagination.

    Folks,

    Lets me honest....There is no way the Patriots or the Vikings are going to the Superbowl. Steelers are by far the best team in AFC and the NFL. The team that will shock everyone will be the Packers to win the NFC North. In his sophomore season, Rodgers will be much better.

    I'm considering but that RB you sent was on my squad last season and very useless for the most part. Maybe different this year. Quite a decision, but I'll consider for sure. Not sure about Peyton, but I'll review an offer.

    Thanks
