I think the Super Bowl 46 loss has to be high on the list... that season seemed like destiny, with all the Myra stuff going on. That one really bummed me out... my hopes were high... probably too high. Just seemed like the perfect storm, and in the end it didn't work out.
Let's go Pats!
It's the worst for me. They had taken the game over. The D nailed it down in the 2nd half and set it up for us to take it.
Our best players let us down, unfortunately.
Many say SB 42, which makes sense, but I can't ignore the Giants great effort on D and gameplan and our lack of execution or sense of urgency, with the helmet catch just something that can't be explained. It's the luckiest play I've ever seen in sports in my life and probably always will be, but that's why people love the SB. It's one game. It's not a series.
It's when they kind of hand games away or underperform from their capability with their own doing, that's when you feel like they blew it.
Ya bozo, the D nailed it down in the second half by allowing scores on 3 of 4 drives with a 9 point lead. They allowed SCORES ON 75% of the drives including the fatal blow with 35 seconds left, and that's nailing it down?
Not one turn over, not one 3 & out, not one stop in jints territory, a 75% ELI FREAKEN MANNING 75% completion, were on the field for 2/3rds of the game.
That's what you call nailing it down?
The only thing they nailed down were the nails in their own coffins.
Worst passing D , worst DPR , of any team to ever play in a SB. FACT
do do do do do do do do....What planet do you live on?
Two FGs in one half, waiting for 4 drives for our offense to do anything, is absolutely handing the keys over after a job VERY well done, and watching the offenese do anything for the team.
Don't try to change history. You can't do it. After the Brady/offense choke job (you clearly have NO friends who aren't Pats fans), where non Pats fans revel in his choking to this day in SB 42, Brady had a chance to slay the dragon in that 4th qtr. He was staring down the barrel of another SB ring and flat out failed in execution on two key plays (INT on 1st down for no reason other than he did not want to run and slide or be tackled or throw it away AND the high, lazy throw off his back foot to Welker who was wide open).
He will took those decisions/plays to his grave.
Yes, NE's D allowing 7 points in one half, and then 2 FGs in the other, with our supposed GREAT offense playing like crap, is something you want to see as a Pats fan to help us finish the game? Everyone in the room was thrilled the D had allowed 13 points through the whole game and kept yelling at the offense to not turn it over and just try to get a FG at mnimum. On the last 3 drives of the 4th, even after the INT he therw so stupidly, this is what everyone was yelling at the tv with there.
Why does everyone in a room watching a game know what to do more than Brady does? Just get a drive to the Giants 30! It's a dome! You have a big leg kicker!
"Do not turn it over, at least get a FG!" That was AFTER he threw the INT in early in the 4th on 1st down. To this day, I have no idea who kidnapped Brady on the field and put Tony Romo or Jay Cutler on our team at QB. I have no idea who kidnapped Brady. Do you?
Our offense can't take just take a nap for the whole 4th qtr in close games like that. This is not debtable. Excusing the offensive work in either SB is a joke.
You are obviously the one trying to re-write history as you conveniently leave out the last "6" in all your conversations.
3 scores out of 4 drives is the reality. 1 punt in our territory is the reality. A 2 score lead squandered by the 3 scores out of 4 drives allowed, is the reality ( FG's are considered scores). A two score lead is NEVER enough with this D, is reality. Allowing Eli a better pass % than Joe Montana , is reality. 26, 1st downs allowed in 8 possessions, is reality.
Allowing an average of 9 plays (mostly 10) per possession, is reality.
An 8 possession game ( causing a low score) due to the D's inability to get off the field, is reality.
No T/O's, no 3 & outs and no stops in enemy territory. is the reality.
Worst Defensive passer rating of any team to play in a SB, is reality.
That's a whole lot of NOTHINGS!
What is the"JOB" of a defense, again? Do you even know?
