..."tradition is the illusion of permanence."

Our ongoing collective illusion for 6 years is that the team only needs a few minor tweaks in order to win #27.

6 years.

Today, the New England Patriots played about as ugly as possible against the Miami Dolphins, an inferior opponent...and won by 10 points. The difference between championship franchises (like the Pats) and merely very good teams (like the Yankees) is that champions find a way to win.

In my opinion, everything (and everyone) is on the table. Torre, Rodriguez, Sheffield, Mussina, Giambi...everyone.

The team's culture must be changed.
