I've never read a better Article about this magnificent Dynasty...and what drives its Leaders.
"There is no taking the Texans lightly.
There isn't just respect for the opponent coming out of Foxborough, there is respect for the moment, the precious moment when another year's worth of work is again on the brink."
Great read. You certainly get the sense from recent quotes that the team is very aware of how much work goes into getting to this point, and how fleeting it can all be. One slip up and it's gone.
Tedy Bruschi had his stroke 10 days after the Pats won their last Super Bowl. If that doesn't underscore how fragile everything can be, nothing will. Since that time the Steelers and Giants have each won 2 SBs and the Packers, Colts and Saints have won one each. The Steelers have actually made the Super Bowl more times than the Pats over the past 7 years, even though the Pats have been the #1 or #2 seed in the AFC 4 out of those 7 years.
Time to start closing the deal and winning some more Super Bowls, and cement a legacy. One game at a time. There is certainly no sense of complacency coming out of Foxboro. They know everything is on the line, and the Texans are gunning for revenge, so they need to come out firing and execute in all 3 phases of the game.

Attacking With Concentrated Force. THAT is what WINS. In the words ~ more or less ~ of General Patton: 'I'm fighting a WAR, here. Let the B*****ES worry about their FLANKS.' " - Off the Grid
"The key to any successful organization is to anticipate things, not react to them." - Michael Lombardi
This is a great article Grid, but the above quote still pisses me off. What they call a 7 year drought, consisted of 7 double digit win seasons, 6 Division titles, 3 AFCCG's, and 2 Superbowl appearances. That's not exactly NOTHING.
There are over a dozen NFL franchises who would love to have just ONE of those seasons that are described as "nothing", let alone 7 straight.
Hey I know all about "its the superbowl or bust". I know how painful a loss in this playoffs would be. HOWEVER, I also know what the Pats have already accomplished this season has been very difficult and hard won. I know that what they've accomplished in the 6 seasons before that was something to be proud of.
