I'm with you. It's all about matchups in this league, and we just don't match up well with their personnel, IMO. The Pats have learned that a balanced offense will take 'em further than Brady's right arm. THey've lost 2 SB's as a pass happy team and won 3 with a balance of running to lean on as well. Ridley and Woodhead are slippery and dangerous. The Pats worry me immensely.
