The Patriots are self-proclaimed "underdogs" ... WHAT?

Jan 11, 2014; Foxborough, MA, USA; New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) gestures at the line in the second half during the 2013 AFC divisional playoff football game against the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY SportsBefore I get into this, I by no means am trashing the team, their quarterback Tom Brady and the greatness that is the New England organization. Not at all ... I just have to chuckle when I hear Tommy and the Pats call themselves "underdogs."

Underdogs do not win their division five seasons in a row and like 15 of the last 20. Underdogs do not make the AFC title games three seasons in a row. Underdogs don't have the best quarterback and best head coach of all-time on their roster. They just don't. I don't care if you trot out the little giants and put them on the same team as Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, I am NEVER betting against that tandem.

I understand that Tom maybe doing this as a motivational ploy, I get it. But when the media gets their hands on that, it becomes drilled into the average fans head and it becomes as true as the sky being blue and the grass being green. It's painful.

Oh and Mr('s). underdogs opened up as 6 point UNDERDOGS and the line has come down to 3.5. Seems like the "underdog" term is dying out a bit =).

To be honest with you, I think the Patriots will win by at least a touchdown in Denver on Sunday. I do. Tom has found a new way to motivate his guys, everyone is on the same page, and Belichick has his troops as bought in as the puppets who follow as Miley Cyrus stick her tongue out and JayZonce throw up the illuminati diamonds. They're BRAINWASHED. The underdogs will be in their 10th Super Bowl in the past 11 years (I know it's a bit dramatic ... I kid) ... UNDERDOGS!

I think "they" are underdogs, Tom Brady is not.

I mean… they're not "self-proclaimed" underdogs if Vegas is favoring the Broncos. That's what an underdog IS.
