This frustrates me also.
People ring me up after the game as well as post on my (facebook) wall with lots of trash - some Chargers fans, some Denver (Tebow) fans, some not even fans of the game!
My philosophy in losing is that I will first congratulate the other set of fans. Should they...
I think the point the OP is making is that we should be grateful of what we have as fans, because there will come a time when we may not be winning, may not have HoF Coach or QB & players - and in those times we will look back wishing for those times when we were getting to the SB, or competing...
Got to agree with a lot of what was posted.
Considering the lockout last year - it was brilliant to watch my team play and seeing them go from constantly dismissed - to getting to the SB and playing their guts out - this is why I love the Pats.
Invariably now I can't wait for Opening Day...
Welker drop. I couldn't believe it was going to come down to the same finish as last time.
That said I had a lot of hope when we converted on 4th down and drove to midfield. After the 12 men penalty I knew it was going to be a decision from upstairs.
- 2nd all time receptions as a Patriot
- 3rd in all time recieving yards as a Patriot
- 80+ catches in all 5 seasons as a Patriot
- 100+ catches in 4 of those 5 seasons
- More catches than anyone else since 2007 and top 5 yardage
Yes - we should cut Wes Welker :rolleyes:
Re: Once again... for the 5th time... CAN WE GET A PASS RUSH PLEASE???!
I think what the OP wants is something like the Giants Dline. And the chances are, you're not going to get it unless you break the bank. Even if you want a JPP or Tuck, it's going to come at a high price.
In my opinion...
In a weird way, just because you're good at something (i.e. 5 wide) doesn't mean you should keep doing it in football. Especially against the Giants. Becoming 1 dimensional against a team that can pass rush 3 with the force of 5 and hence can drop 8 back with no threat of a run is not...
OP - the thread title does sum it up.
I look back at the game and also wonder where we lost it. I do not believe it was because our gameplan was bad (we nullified Cruz, pass rush was limited to 2 sacks), or because we did not systematically stop the Giants (their run game was mostly limited...
You can't be in the hunt for the SB if you're not in the playoffs.
I wanna see the Pats win every game. But I'll settle for guaranteed playoffs and just a chance to fight for the getting to the Superbowl.
Anything can happen in that scenario. From thunderhorse teams making and not making...
Glad you had a good time Paul, much like I did as well! I couldn't believe the Meriweather pick, I went absolutely beserk when he tore it up towards the EZ I was at!
As for the comments about sports over here - we pretty much get coverage of anything and everything, from Soccer to NASCAR to...
I had a chant for Mike Vrabel that I would sing in my house when he was still with us... it went something like:
Coming through to sack the QB!"
It can be done... just requires some creativity and fan organisation.
Whaddya say fans coming to Wembley? Defensive...
Re: Slighty OT, For the Brits Amongst Us..
I'm seriously annoyed with the deal situation right now. With the NFL coming to the UK for a 3rd consecutive year, I really can't believe they're going to be cutting their investment into a game which is increasingly becoming popular on the University...
I disagree with the list. I don't disagree with all the players (e.g. Tate), but for guys like Tate I just don't think it will be this season where he breaks out.
IMO, the list is:
Ray Ventrone - could be very important with Izzo going going gone.
Seabass - If injuries plague the OL like...
