GOD I HOPE SO! Please, say the PATRIOTS ARE IN TROUBLE!!!
You mean like in 2001 when Drew Bledsoe went down for the year and in came some lanky nobody to take them to and win the Superbowl?
You mean like in 2007 when "Spygate" rocked their world so bad that they went 16-0 and made it to yet another Superbowl?
You mean like in 2008 when Tom was lost in the first game of the season and some guy who was so bad that he hadn't started a single football game since HIGH SCHOOL lead them to a 11-4 record the rest of the way?
Yeah, I really hope they think they are in trouble this year, because if you haven't noticed, the New England Patriots take tragedies and use them to galvanize the team, to display laser-like focus, and to feed off of the adversity like no other professional sports organization. Afterall, what else could motivate the most successful franchise in the NFL over the last 13-years more than being told that "THEY ARE TOAST!"? Keep the nay-sayers comin' and we'll C-U in New Jersey on 2/2/2014! CAN'T WAIT!
You know that in 2007, the lost the Super Bowl in what is considered one of the biggest upsets in NFL history, and in 2008 they did not make the playoffs...
What you said here has absolutely nothing to do with the point.
THE POINT AS STATED ABOVE: "the New England Patriots take tragedies and use them to galvanize the team, to display laser-like focus, and to feed off of the adversity like no other professional sports organization."
Yeah, I know they lost the Superbowl with the help of one of, if not THE most bizzarre play that any of us have ever seen. That has nothing to do with how the TEAM and organization responded to the Spygate, THANKS!
