    Yeah, that's a pretty bad azz video! I got chills too...(Even though I started following the Pats when they drafted Bledsoe)

    There was a person or two, maybe Italian Pat, asking if anyone has video of the Sugar Bear Hamilton hit on Stabler in the Ben Dreith game. This Youtube by Uncle Buck has it. Thanks to Uncle Buck! Great job on that Pats history vid. From Harvard Stadium(?)/Fenway Park shots to the Brady to Moss double record breaking TD. Man, misty in here from a guy that remembers all of it.

    That video is SWEET!

    I started following them when Eason and Grogan were the QB's. Didn't realize (or remember) ol' Gino was so multi-talented.

    I didn't know the Patriots use to play at the old Nickerson Field/Braves field. Wow.

    Anyone ever watched a Patriots' game there?

    Great video (I think the Bledsoe hit can be removed however).

    You da man Uncle Buck. I started following Pats in 76. Punt return my Mike Haynes was awesome. Him Russ Francis and J.Hannah were my faves.

    Anyone ever see the video of Hannah doing a spin move and nailing a Jet cb? Checked inside gap nobody coming. Spun outside and caught a Jet cb blitzing. Jet cb never saw Hannah and landed about 10yds from where Hoggie hit him. Swear to god it's not urban legend. Jerry Girard Ch. 11 sportscaster from NY showed the clip on his show the night of the game. And threw it in about 5-6 different times throughout his highlight show.

    I'm only 24 so I, too came on when Bledsoe arrived. I wasn't around for the Grogan days or for Mark Henderson, but that video still hit home. I had forgotten about the throwback pass to Brady..........what a great play. Also, how amazing was Ty Law's 3 pick performance against Manning........just incredible.

    Re: "How far we've come" video.. a must see

    Outstanding video! Of particular note were the clips of:

    - Sugar Bear Hamilton's roughing the passer (boo!)
    - Mosi's late TD to ice the AFCCG in '85.
    - Grogan's late TD to Morgan to win the AFCE in '86.
    - Bledsoe's OT TD to Timpson to knock the Dolphins out of the playoffs in '93.
    - Martin's 78yd playoff TD vs. Pittsburgh in '96.
    - O-T-I-S' fumble return to seal the AFCCG in '96.

    And of course everything since 2001.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Are they going to remake the ending after the game whether win or lose?

    FWIW, that was the first time I saw the infamous roughing the passer call from that angle; BY FAR the biggest horsesh!t bogus call in NFL playoff history, just pathetic and sad..................

    Good stuff... just put it on mute though.

    Music is of Jets quality.

    No, it was from Faulk in the last regular season game at Foxboro Stadium against Miami. We took over first place that day and clinched the bye the next week by crushing the Panthers.

    Well said. That's a great video. Wish there was a way to download it.

    The really cool thing for me was i remember going to a couple of games with my dad when i was real young and couldn't remember which stadium. Now I'm certain it was Harvard.

    I wish NFL Films would put together a 4 hour history on the Pats. I can't get enough of that old footage even though I only saw my first home game in 1999.

    Sheesh, I was totally in love with Tony Eason as a kid...was that him with the headset on? Because he is so not as attractive as I remember.

    Anyway, that's a fantastic video.

    That gave me some chills, too. Good stuff, and I'm really glad Gino, Tatupu, and Curtis Matin found their way into this. I didn't notice if Sam Gash was featured, though?

    One of those highlights in particular, the Curtis Martin TD against Pitt in the fog, is still one of my favorite memories as a patriots fan.

    Re: "How far we've come" video.. a must see

    A....MA....ZING...That's instantaneously my favorite YouTube video of all time, and as soon as I'm done with this post I'm sending it out to all my friends and family. I'm too young to remember alot of that, but knowing the names and having previously seen the clips, it's just amazing to see the progression and then the climax when it gets to 2001.

    One particular moment that I thought was particularly well done (as artistic as any football video you'll ever see) was the moment at 3:57 of the video, when Bledsoe went down. The lyrics go like this throughout the scene:
    And though I walk through the valley of Darkness,
    I am not afraid,
    Cause I know I'm not alone...

    Bledsoe goes down, then you see the proverbial 'changing of the guard', as Bledsoe turns away from the field and Brady trots on to lead the team. I just loved that part, very poignant, and it was fitting because it was everyone's thought at the same time. While some will gladly admit that they had tired of Bledsoe, he was still QB1 of a team that was about to go 0-2 and was now playing an unproven, 6th round QB. I know I was worried.

    God damn, I love that video.
