I'm just sayin'.
.........I wonder if Tommy needs another point of comparison?
I've always thought Sam Wyche was a saint for keeping his cool after losing that super bowl that way. Of course, it was Joe Montana on the last drive. The "John Candy in the end zone eating popcorn" super bowl.
Never would have heard that on on ESPN.. until after the superbowl was over!!!
That team had a pretty good quarterback. Reminds me of ours!
Yeah Cassel has all those same traits!
Thanks for the thread. I knew a team had to have gone 10-6 and won the Superbowl, but I couldn't recall who.
You're forgetting about our other quarterback who is bound for Canton when his career is done...
Sorry, my mistake!
Still would have liked to have gone 11-5 ,but I think Belichick played it right, Kraft must have told him that good chance they were going to play Sat nite, which would be 3 games in a 13 day span. Need to be healthy ,going into the playoffs, and its not like we were not competitive... 10-6 is nice,but 3 loses at home, not nice...
The 1980 Raiders won the super bowl with the same number of post season games required as this year's Pats. Pretty good QB for them also, Jim Plunkett.
AFC Wildcard Game: won 27 - 7 vs. Houston Oilers
AFC Divisional Playoff: won 14 - 12 at Cleveland Browns
AFC Championship Game: won 34 - 27 at San Diego Chargers
Super Bowl: won 27 - 10 at Philadelphia Eagles
.... And they won the NFCC by beating a team they LOST to in the regular season ....
i dont think kraft needed to tell BB anything. 5-2 at home, plus one game when the backup QB was ordered to throw the last play away.
My own opinion is that BB didnt really think MC would get it that close. After next year, dontcha think MC is worth more than AJ Feeley (a #2)?
NFL Total Access tonight had a Steve Sabol piece on the Green Bay Packers winning three Championships in a row - coincidentally, Green Bay survived a slew of injuries to win their third. Whether this is a good omen or not, it is an encouraging reminder of how history repeats itself.
In 1934, the NY Giants won the NFL Championship after posting an 8-5 regular season.
