Cap Problems

The New England Patriots heading into March are starting to look like they will be without WR Troy Brown and/or CB Ty Law, all because of the salary cap issues. I am sure both these player would love to stay on this team, but the problem is; are Ty Law and Troy Brown willing to take a pay cut and reconstruct their contract.

The Patriots are about $3 million dollars over and cutting Brown would give them a $4 million dollars in cap relief. Law on the other hand is due for something along the lines of $12 million dollars in 2005.

Dynasty

The Patriots did it again. The Patriots have now won 3 of the last 4 Super Bowls and have established them self’s as a dynasty. After watching the game, I have come to believe my self even more, when I say “Offense wins games, Defense wins Championships.” The Pats D really should have got MVP.

That is not to take anything away from Branch, but the D really stuck it to McNabb. If you look at the play of Harrison, Bruschi, Vrabel, Seymour, and McGinest, you can see these guys all over the field.

There were several times the Pats defense had to bail out the offense with some important turnovers early in the game. Although the Pats didn’t capitalize off of all the turnovers they still produce enough points stay ahead.

Brady is a great QB don’t get me wrong but why does every think he is better than Montana. Montana has 3 MVP trophies Brady has two. Besides, it is two different quarterbacks in different eras, so there is no comparison. Both are great QB's for there time, lets just leave it at that.

Congratulations to the Pats OC Charlie Weis, who took the job as head coach for Notre Dame and to DC Romeo Crennel who is now the head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Question now is... is that good for the Pats?
