Thanks for starting a positive thread. I was just reading through the panic threads which are sort of hilarious. Trade Brady, get rid of Welker, Bill should retire!!! Do these people want a 3-13 team next year! The Pats fan base is so spoiled it cracks me up. Maybe if they suffered through the 1-15 and 2-14 seasons they would understand. It was a great season with some bad breaks at the end!!!!
I did suffer through a 1 - 15 season. With the Patriots.
Boy, do I remember those years. Even the pseudo-glory days of Chuck Fairbanks and Plunkett.
In a way, it would be a positive for this team to take a nosedive to 8-8 and out of the playoffs to stop the chest-thumping.
The thing I like about how the NYG or PITT do things is they can miss the playoffs, roar back win a SB, miss the playoffs again, roar back win a SB.
This perennial Atlanta Braves of the NFL is starting to tire me out.
Well, I think you are right. I didn't get th efeeling that this team was excited about the AFC championship this week. The build up was terrible.
Where is the fire and excitement? they have lots of players who have never won a ring but they act like they are 3 time champions.
I think that is on the coach. Sports is a funny business - but even great successful HoF coaches wear out their effectiveness. the fact that BB had this team sleepwalk into an AFC championship is unacceptable.
Can anyone point to a single emotional play by a patriot today? Remember when Bruschi would play?
There is no emotion. It is all business and it's on the coach. they play football, an inherently emotional game, like a bunch of robots.
then when they get slapped in the mouth the robot keeps saying "That. Does. Not. Compute."
