Phil Taylor's review of the Patriots' dynasty over the past 10 years (POINT AFTER, Feb. 13) isn't quite complete without mentioning the ridiculous interpretation of the tuck rule from the 2002 AFC divisional playoff game that kept the Pats, who were down by three points with 1:50 left in regulation, alive against the Raiders. How might everyone's fortunes have changed had Brady's obvious fumble actually been ruled a fumble? If not for that call, would there even be a New England dynasty to speak of?

Dave Barncord, Granger, Ind.
