The 70% DIS-Solution

There is but one stat that tells you all you need to know about why the Pats were sucker-punched last night by the Colts: 70% of the time an opponent enters the sacred Red Zone this year against your defending World Champs, they celebrate. Not good.

And for all the quaint optimisism that was generated by the Pats quickly answering Manning's easy roll to a 7-0 lead, it really shouldn't have been there at all in the lop-sided 40-21 loss at Foxboro. Not exactly the kind of international display you want on Monday Night Football.

What can you say? No Harrison, no Seymour....no Mas!!!!! Thank God for the AFC East.
