In the NFL, are some bootlegs fully clothed? Or are they all just naked?

Len Pasquarelli might be a senior writer for ESPN.com, but his story on a possible 1,000-yard season for running back-turned-dinosaur Emmitt Smith was nothing short of sophomoric. "Smith, who hasn't rushed for 1,000 yards since the 2001 season, is on pace for 1,392 yards, which would be his best year since 1999," Pasquarelli mused after Emmitt's 87-yard Week 1 performance. "Setting the pace early, of course, does not guarantee Smith will even be around at the finish line, and the broken scapula that cost him six games last season is all the reminder anyone needs to demonstrate that he is no longer an iron man." Len can qualify his projection all he wants. The fact remains that his premise was no more compelling than a baseball writer plugging a run at .400 ten games - or 1/16th of the way - into the season...

If his name is any indication of how he plays football, then newly signed Patriots safety Curry Burns should add fire to an already zesty New England defensive backfield. Not since Mark Spitz has a name had so much spice...and yet so much information...

Pardon my punctuation, but it's only fitting that in this age of "rejuvenated" American Imperialism, the "Patriots" are "gunning" for a "third world" championship in four years...

So maybe the Patriots aren't a Dynasty yet. Big deal. They've still won seventeen games in a row in an era of Parity. And with two of the four Super Bowls since the 2000 season to their credit, New England is the Team of the Decade, the Team of the Century, and - quite simply - the Team of the Millennium...

Well ol Emmitt Smith has rushed for 290 yrds in four games so far.

Has Len Pasquarelli got a crystal ball?
