Quotes of the day: New England Patriots edition

... defensive passing yards allowed don’t tell the whole story, particularly when a team’s offense is as prolific as New England’s. Consider that the four teams that have allowed the most passing yards this season are the Packers, Patriots, New York Giants and New Orleans Saints, four division champions with a combined 50-14 record.--John Parolin

Statistics are like a bikini. What they present is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.--Aaron Levenstein

After losing to the Giants to fall to 5-3, the Patriots ran off a string of eight straight wins to get to 13-3 and grab the AFC’s first seed heading into this week’s opening round bye. Following that Giants loss, Bill Belichick cut ties with Albert Haynesworth, one of his notable off-season pickups. So yes, the Pats haven’t lost since Big Al got the gate. Might there be a correlation between the winning streak and Albert’s departure? ... For what it’s worth, Tampa, who picked up Haynesworth, went 0-for-Albert. They didn’t win a single game since picking him up off waivers.--Rap Sheet

Some statistics present something vital.--Cav
