The perception of the Patriots is that 'The End is Near.' Ben Maller thinks if you believe that perception, let them embrace it.
Patriots have shown signs of decline this season, but they've also shown they can compete against the top teams in the league. Patriots did not lose to any team this season that made the playoffs. If the perception is that they're falling off, they've shown no signs of it so far, so the perception is already irrational as anyone thinking Patriots don't have the right to play up the story the perception created.
