When did George Steinbrenner take over the Patriots?

By Steven Lienert
The Phanatic Magazine

After sleeping on it, I finally figured out why the Eagles drafted Kevin Kolb.

They obviously had inside information that Randy Moss was about to become a Patriot, so they figured the 2007 season was washout anyway.

If it's possible to win a Lombardi Trophy in April, the New England Patriots have accomplished it.

Sports Illustrated has already starting running commercials for fans to get their 2007 and 2008 New England Patriots Super Bowl Champions commemorative DVD's with any paid subscription.

Coach Bill Belichick liked coaching the AFC Pro-Bowl team so much last season, he decided to make them all Pats.

Wide receiver Kevin Curtis, the Birds' answer to the departure of Donte Stallworth (who went to the Pats), would have to battle just to make New England's roster.

Oh, wait a second.... this just in... The Phanatic has learned the Patriots just acquired Reggie Bush from the Saints in exchange for an old Corey Dillon jersey.

I blame all this on Peyton Manning. If he didn't rally the Colts past the Pats in last year's AFC championship game, the Patriots would have won another Super Bowl and not gone all Yankees on the NFL.

Maybe the Eagles should consider putting Donovan McNabb on the IR for the season and let Kolb earn his wings. After today, the end result seems like a foregone conclusion.

This is a rather uneducated rant. The Patriots work within the limits of the salary cap and do not spend more money than everyone else, unlike the Yankees.

Yep, the Patriots have all the resources that everyone else has to sign players. I understand the rant as it seems like they must be doing something unfair to take a very, very good team and add so much talent to it.

Don't forget the games still need to be played. I believe the Rams had their DVDs all printed in 2001 when the Patriots came along. I'm sure that the Patriots were printing AFC Champion hats when they were up 21-3 last year against the Colts. Talent can be wiped out by one slipped pass and/or a couple of questionable referee calls.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
