The man, who once said he would rather flip hamburgers in a fast food restaurant than play for the Cincinnati Bengals, is beginning hismedia unfriendliness with his second NFL team, the New England Patriots. Corey Dillon is having a rough year with the Patriots.

Their rushing game was ranked last in the league going into this past weekend’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The game against the Falcons was one of his better games of the season so far. Dillon rushed the ball 23 times for 106 total yards and in the process he eclipsed the 10,000-yard mark for his career. After the game he didn’t talk much with the media, though.

Dillon is an excellent running back and has a Super Bowl ring to show for it. However, he is still very media unfriendly and didn’t talk much with the media at all following the game this past Sunday.

Dillon’s big game was a welcome sight to Patriots after they had a big letdown in their 41-17 home loss to the San Diego Chargers. NFL fans will have to see what the rest of the season holds for the Patriots. It is a sure bet that the majority will be rooting for them to lose every Sunday.

This happens in every major sport when a team builds a dynasty type of team. Just look at how Major League Baseball fans are with the New York Yankees, you either love them or hate them. They have a big game this upcoming weekend against the Denver Broncos in Denver. The Broncos are a force to be aware of with their 4-1 record and their first place position atop the AFC West Division.

The biggest game of the season for Dillon and the Patriots is their Monday Night Football game on November 7th against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts at home.

This game will be key for both teams. It will be interesting to see if Peyton Manning can finally defeat the Patriots after several unsuccessful attempts of trying to defeat the Patriots.

The Patriots are clearly banged up with cornerback Rodney Harrison on injured reserve and Tedy Bruschi on the physically unable to perform list and defensive lineman Richard Seymour out, also.

With the injuries to their defense it will be up to Dillon and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to see if they can lead the team deep into the playoffs again this year.
