José Vizcaíno quote
Because they are the Patriots. That's why (you don't count them out). Because it doesn't happen to them a lot, ... You don't win three Super Bowls in the last four years without overcoming some adversity and responding to the loss of key players. I would take exception to the thought that they are in trouble.
