We've got to make some sort of bet, Notorious. The bet being that Chandler Jones won't win the DROY over Kuechly, or that Kuechly will at least garner more votes than Jones does. Barring injuries on both sides, of course. If Jones wins/finishes higher in the standings for DROY, you win. If Kuechly does, I win.
It cuts both ways (just wanted to get a cliche in here). If you force a team to become one dimensional by getting a large lead, then you get to tee off on the QB. The Patriots were bad last year, end of story. There's no sugar coating it. I mean the Patriots offense isn't the first one to ever get big leads pretty much all year. Plenty of other offensive juggernauts have blown teams out, but they also had sound defenses that kept the margin of victory. Maybe the Pats should take the cues of those superior offenses of old and RUN THE BALL late to preserve a victory.
