...But understand this, they're still one of the best teams in football and will be again next year. Life goes on. They will rise again.

Hmmm, interesting. The only thing I would say is that maybe u'd better take that ostrich head out of the sand. The Patriots have been at the top of the second tier of teams since 2004.....and have basically performed much like the Colts of old. Win lots of regular season games.....lose big games in the playoffs.
Here's what bothers most of us fans who are in the middle and like to discuss different things on this board - are fans like you who actually think they're a better brand of fan. Think about it.
When I read a post like this I feel like I'm in a parallel reality or some such thing.
Define "second tier." They came within one fluke play of having the greatest season in NFL history, the've set team and individual records galore. 106-37, including playoffs since 2004. Came within a few points of winning two Super Bowls and making it to a third.
Who's in the first tier? San Fran, they haven't won anything since the mid-90s. Baltimore won once in 2000. Teams make great playoff runs and then fade back to mediocrity, very few are consistent winners year after year.
And your last paragraph? Huh? What's a fan in the middle? You should change your screen name to Malcolm.
I said in the first post, talk all you want about ways to improve the team. It clearly needs changes in key positions and I'm not ignoring any of that. The defense is still a work in progress (although they seemed to be performing fine before Talib went out). Need a better pass rush, better secondary play, speed/size at receiver, better return game.
What's this "better brand of fan" reference? I said that if you're a Patriot fan you're better than trolls. I stand by that. I may disagree profoundly with you or Babe or whoever, but you're still 1000% better than the trolls, i.e., fans of other teams that only come here to stir the pot. Screw them. Better yet, ignore them.
