And let's reflect for a bit how big the Patriots have gotten. Before
Parcells/Bledsoe, they were a non-entity around here and went through a few
year spell of rarely having games on TV. An entire generation is now rabid
for the team, thanks to the Pats' prolonged success. Had someone said to me
in 1992 that the Patriots could one day arguably be the No. 1 pro sports
team, I would've laughed. Hard. For an extended period of time.
