    45-3

    How much do you think this will help.

    I think about that game everytime the Patriots blow out a team that we have the potential to meet again.

    There was a quote that I read about Wilfork, during a meeting, pulled out names of great statistical teams that fell short of the Super Bowl.

    I don't think this is lost on the Pats. 2010 should be a clear reminder of a team rolling only to lose to a team you beat 45-3.

    If the Pats find a way to win the Super Bowl this season. I'm going to look back at the 2010 season as a lesson learned for the young core of this team (Gronk, Hernandez, Spikes, McCourty, etc).

    This W is officially just another one of ten for this team. The score of the game doesn't matter anymore. Need to look at the next game as a 0-0 Patriots vs the 0-0 49ers, because as we all know, last week does not guarantee anything for next week.

    If we meet Houston again in the playoffs (hopefully at home!) you can bet BB will let them hear it about 2010 all week.

    Nothing you did in the past really matters.  It is about that game you are playing on that day.

    We will have to show up and show out

    Yeah... Had that same thought... Or similar like, this game doesn't mean much, and that the result 42-14, could end up helping to motivate Texans if they meet again for all the marbles... Like in 2010.

    And then I remember Schaub has won 4 big games his whole career and Brady has won about 30.

    I would love to see Peyton in Foxboro in January...with the same results as the old days of course.

    Disagree a bit. Otherwise, that's like saying big game experience does not matter (which a lot of people say was a huge difference in the Monday Night Game). Yes, you have to show up that day, but you need to use past experiences to benefit you. Otherwise, you're just playing as a rookie.

     

    Even Giants players will admit that the 38-35 losses in 2007 and 2011, respectively, helped them.

    The nucleus of this team was part of that 2010 disappointment. Patriots absolutely demolished the Texans. Almost human nature for them to go into a rematch and let up a bit because theyre overconfident. I would think the Texans would come into a rematch with more will and fight (then again, this looks like a team of quitters)

     

    Point is, that 2010 was a learning experience. And I feel that it makes it LESS likely that a similar thing happen to this team again. It's called learning from your mistakes.

    This nucleus of this 2012 team has been humbled by a playoff upset in 2010 and a disappointing end to a Super Bowl in 2011. I don't think of this as a largely young and inexperienced team like I did in 2010 and 2011. This is a playoff tested team.

    The greater point is that the 2012 Patriots have improved on both sides of the ball since we lost to the Jets. I'd contend that the current team with the blance we have on the offensive side due to our ability to run the ball and the improvements made on defense is the best team we've had since our Superbowl runs. In 2008 if you had a stout front seven that didn't need safety help in stopping our run game with the ability to pressure Brady and had corners to play press on Moss and Welker (Ravens & Giants) we were in trouble...The same could be said of last years team too.

    Yes, the Houston game is now history. Today, the Pats begin to prepare for the 49ers. Concentrate on only the next game in front of you and let the chips fall where they may.

    GRONK SMASH!!!!

     

    2010 was different, we were cocky and we took the Jets lightly. Rex then pulled out a fabulous game plan to limit Brady and we had nothing else to counter it. Now, Wade Philips can bring out his all-star gameplan and it wouldn't matter worth a damn. We dominated them with our best receiver out, we're going to be 100 times tougher once The G-Man is back.

    Plus, in 2010, our defense play a great game against a team that always plays us tough. The defensive play that night of the blowout was an abberation and we found out in the playoffs. This year, our defense, thanks to Talib, is good enough to make plays for us if everyone stays healthy. 

     

    BB doesn't even start gameplanning until the AFCCG.

    Actually, the Jests won in 2010 because the Pats DEFENSE couldn't stop their offense.  Did ya even watch the game?

    [/QUOTE]

    Neither side played well, Brady had a bad game too.
