Ron Borges gives us a detailed feature on Bill Parcells, who even though he failed to bring a championship to New England, is still a compelling personality around these parts. An enjoyable read. Michael Felger looks at a very productive Sunday for the inactive Patriots. Alan Greenberg looks at how the Patriots have gotten themselves to 7-2, and where they go from here. Dan Pires gives us a midseason recap. Bill Burt tries to make a case for Tom Brady as the best QB in the NFL. Nick Cafardo looks ahead to the return of Ted Washington and what it means for the second half of the season. He says:
But now it's time to set the stage for the final seven games. The remaining schedule is easier, you say? Maybe on paper, but in reality it could be harder.
While Patriots supporters are quite naturally enthusiastic, the true greatness of a team (see 2001) is how it finishes. Will the Patriots be strong in December? Will they have momentum going into the playoffs?
Drat, the Patriots have been foiled again by the evil genius that is Tom Donahoe. He’s gotten the Bills in a perfect position to reel off a strong second half after getting their struggles out of the way early…I wring my hands and curse Bill Belichick for getting the Patriots to 7-2 at this point. How could he be so foolish? The Globe gives us a section on Tuna Bowl Reviews. Felger gives us an update on Rosevelt Colvin, who wants to reassure everyone that his injury is nowhere close to the one that essentially ended the productive career of Bo Jackson. George Kimball has a pay column on the Tuna, and the job he’s done in Dallas. When the Cowboys play the Patriots next week, it will mean that four out of the last five opponents Dallas has faced has been coming off their bye week and have had an extra week to prepare for them. The Cowboys have won the first three.
Frank Dell’Apa and Gus Martins look at the Revolution advancing to the next round of the MLS playoffs. Mike Biglin looks at key reserves stepping in to play big roles for the Revs. Susan Bickelhaupt looks at rookie Pat Noonan, who scored the only goal for the Revs yesterday.
John Molori reminds us that football is king of the TV ratings.
ABC has Eagles/Packers at 9:00.
