You thought it wasn't nice to fool Mother Nature? Try running your mouth at Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots!As if the Patriots are going to be intimidated by anyone, let alone the mediocre Dolphins. I'm tired of hearing lower tier teams complain about the scores of ballgames they never had a chance to win anyways. Did anybody bat an eye when the '85 Bears ran roughshod over the Patriots in Super Bowl XX, winning by 36 points? How about Super Bowl XXIV where the 49ers beat up the Broncos by 45 points?Accusations of running up the score are the equivalent of the referees complaining that wide receivers run faster than they do. It's a lame excuse for not being able to stop the other team's offense.Do the Patriots really need more reasons to extend their scoring dominance against a division rival? No... but they'll take whatever they please.Maybe we can pardon Ryan Tannehill for thinking that the Patriots "...are just another team." And should we really care that...
