[QUOTE]In Response to Re: All the haters of our defense... : Glad I could give you a chuckle, like so many you and others gave me over the season predicting gloom and doom for our terrible defense. All season I suggested BB was saving his D tackles for the post season, this isn't something I came up with after one playoff win, others here will attest to that I've been saying this all season. And like a few others here I don't subscribe to fantasy stats as the end all be all, you don't get points for gaining a lot of yards. If you feel a tad bit foolish because the defense held the Broncos to one TD, held the #1 rushing team in the league to 3 yards a carry, probably set a playoff record for stops in the backfield, sacked Tebow 5 times and intercepted him once looking otherwise dominant exclusively running a 3/4 base defense don't feel bad you are not alone.
You were probably one of the lemmings parroting the national media and other posters all season about BB changing to a 4/3 defense, all the while I insisted he wouldn't. I know it smarts when you're wrong, but I wasn't thinking of you when I initiated this thread, try not taking it personally. As far as the rest of the post season goes, if the Pats run the ball and stay unpredictable on offense then we won't lose to anyone. If we lose it will be because we passed 50 times, got sacked 5 and intercepted 3 times... that's not a prediction just a trend. I have had San Francisco meeting them in the Super Bowl since before the playoffs began, though it won't surprise me if Green Bay gets there but then I don't claim to be an expert on anything, I just post my thoughts, try not to attack genuine Pats fans and admit when I'm wrong, something you should try and emulate. I sincerely hope that makes you laugh as well, I love spreading joy...

Wow, I'm late to the party but I'll start by saying, "Nice Retort Sir" Anybody here trying to take away from what the defense(and the offense) just did must be trying to back up previous comments...as in they have an agenda.
This team looks like the most complete team left in the playoffs. It is not a coincidence we had one of our best defensive games of the year in our first post season game. We have talent, we have the best coach, and we have the best QB. If we can limit our own turnovers I believe we will win the big game this year.
A glorious time for the empire. Go Pats.
