No other way to put it: this season was a failure. If you go 14-2 and lose in your first playoff game, it's a failure. It's just so fuucking disappointing. It takes an entire year of waiting to get to this point, and then your favorite team lets you down, after so much buildup and so much promise - I honestly want to shoot myself right now. I won't, but to know that I have to wait a whole year to wait for them to get to this point again makes me insane.
Who knows if they'll be this good again. Who knows, who knows, who knows. A great season, gone to waste. Many sleepless nights to follow, and many weeks of "what ifs". And the worst part is that the chances of getting to the super-bowl every year are slim to none, and this year is now wasted. Time for another year to roll around, and likely anther playoff loss.
Worst of all, the Jets get to run their mouths. Look, they outplayed us and outcoached us, but no team that rude and that immature should be allowed in the NFL.
I suppose we have reason to be optimistic. We have a very young, but very improved defense. We still have Brady, and we still have the best coach in the league. We have defensive starters returning, and we have plenty of draft picks.
It just stings.... a lot. Well, time to move on. What is over is over. There will always be next season, and the one after that... etc.
