The look on Eric Mangini's face said it all.

I remember very well that afternoon at the Meadowlands in September of 2007, when Jets quarterback Chad Pennington came hobbling off the field after Jarvis Green rolled up his ankle on a third quarter sack against the Patriots.

As if my life as a Packers part-owner wasn’t miserable enough watching Brett Favre every Sunday through his final half-dozen years in Green Bay (the first 10 were pretty good), now I’ve got to suffer through at least one more crucial situation with the rest of Patriots Nation on Sunday.

The Patriots have taken care of business so well and made so many marginal teams look so awful this season that you can’t help but wonder: Why they couldn’t have saved some of those plays for the good teams?

As you know by now, I have some topics near and dear to my heart -- and I'm not even referring to MILFs, cougars, Madonna or Randy Moss.

The conventional wisdom for the Patriots going into Sunday’s game in Oakland was that all they had to do was give the Raiders a reason to pack it in early and they would do it. As it turns out, the Pats didn't even need to give them a reason.
Michael Felger
12/14/2008 - 10:18am
Agonizing. That's the only way to describe yesterday if you're a Patriots fan. We're not talking about the actual game out in Oakland, of course. That was a breeze of epic proportions.
Michael Felger
12/10/2008 - 10:18am
Yes, I would take Deion Branch over Randy Moss. That’s no joke and not something I say just to rile you up. I’ve been saying it for over a year. And in this mailbag, I’ll prove to you why I’m right.

The recently retired and Patriots Hall of Fame-enshrined Troy Brown carried the moniker of “Mr. Patriot.” It's a lifetime title.

We’ll talk about the level of competition some other time. The Seattle Seahawks get paid. The NFL logo is stitched onto their jerseys. The game counted.

Call me a d-bag, jerk-weed, contrarian, but I’ve never really bought into the old Bill Parcells’ adage that all you need to do is "make the tournament."

Here's something that’s been lost in the wash of the Patriots' brutal second half Sunday night at Gillette Stadium. The Steelers did not come ready to play this game.

FOXBORO -- The opportunity was there for the Patriots Sunday night. The opportunity to not just jump back into a tie for first place in the AFC East and strengthen their postseason position, but, perhaps more importantly, establish themselves as a team that deserves to be taken seriously.   As it turns out, they probably don't.  
Michael Felger

Let this be a warning: There's a lot of pure Wisconsin cheese in the bag this week, where we get to re-live the childhood of little Mikey Felger and find out who he roots for and why. Get your barf bags ready.

Say this for the 2008 Patriots: They’ve given us some really compelling football.

We thought we wouldn’t see it again until next September. But it turns out we don’t need to wait until the 2009 season for the return of the most dangerous weapon in the NFL.

My name is Michael and I have a problem…. I can’t stop criticizing Randy Moss. Let this mailbag serve as the first step in my recovery.

A positive storyline is emerging amid the injury-induced rubble of this 2008 Patriots season.     We're getting to see a glimpse of the future.

Things that make me want to puke and things that give me a pleasant tingle down my leg (yes there are some) after the Patriots’ ridiculous, 34-31 overtime loss to the Jets at Gillette Stadium Thursday night: Puke: The Patriots pass defense.
Michael Felger
11/12/2008 - 9:18am
What a weird bag, folks. I don’t know what’s going on, whether it’s the dog days of the football season, a post-election freak out or just that time of the month, but we’re all over the place this week.
Michael Felger

The worst bit of Patriots news since you-know-who got hurt eight minutes into the season came down Sunday night. Yes, the Adalius Thomas arm injury is an absolute killer.
Michael Felger
11/09/2008 - 1:15am
FOXBORO – How far can the Patriots go the rest of the way? I think it comes down to two essential factors: 1. Can they continue to cover up for a shaky secondary? 2. Can the offense start scoring from the red zone?    
Michael Felger
11/06/2008 - 9:18am
I guess there are no moral victories in Patriot Land. You guys were out for blood after a frustrating loss in Indianapolis, and just because I wouldn't cut up the carcass you've now turned on me. Savages. You get your say this week while I meekly try to defend myself.
Michael Felger
11/03/2008 - 12:18pm
I think we’ve all got mixed emotions after this one. The Patriots really played well on many levels Sunday in Indianapolis, yet they also made a series of pull-your-hair-out mistakes that cost them the victory. I don’t consider the result so much a bad loss as a missed opportunity.
Michael Felger

Good night for the Patriots. Bad night for Bill Belichick.
