    Are you guys watching this now? That team was pathetic compared to this years team.

    Offense/Defense/ everything.

    Wow. Eye opening.

    That offense was freaking terrible.

    The best way to describe that team, IMHO, is front runners. They played very well with the lead and when things were coming up roses for them. Games against the Falcons, Baltimore, the second Jets game, etc showed this.

    However, when met with the slightest adversity, they caved. Denver, Indy, at Miami, etc.

    Another thing that really gets me about that team is how they didn't listen to what BB said. Faulk earlier this year had a comment, something like, "At some point these guys will learn that when Bill says something is going to happen in a game, it happens." You can see it in that show too. He goes over what to take away from the Jets and then no one does what he says as it unfolds in front of them. I think any parent or anyone who works with kids/teenagers can empathize with this. You try to prepare them but they act like they know better and then look at what happens. You were right and it is so frustrating.

    Yeah, it prob didn't matter if the Pats beat B-more that year. They would've lost the next week or prob against the Saints in the SB. Yeah, this team is WAY better. Next year they will be even better especially when BB rebuilds the secondary in the offseason.

    BB is so funny in this program. Stark contrast on the man in the interview room. I think he just hates the two-faced media..lol

    I still remember him mumbling to Brady "I just can't get them to play the way they need to play." It looks like he spent the next two years cleaning out everyone who couldn't play the way that was needed, even if the moves looked bewildering at the time.

    What's hilarious???

    ...Fred Flinstone, Sponge Bob, and the division goes through us (especially sarcastically repeated by BB)

    Hey -- anyone know how much Brady was around the team after he was IR'd in '08? My impression has always been that it wasn't much, and that's when the chemistry of this team went downhill. Brady must have come back and thought, "what the ..." I always felt like the off-season between '09 and '10, BB and Brady set out to reclaim the locker room. As far as I can see, they succeeded.

    I find it amazing that the defense this year is entirely different than 2009... just 2 years ago.

    17 of 22 starters will be different from that Ravens 2009 playoff game (though one is Wes). Brady, Mankins, Light, Wilfork, Mayo are holdovers.

    I'm disgusted watching the highlights of that last game. That team had no heart.

    Belichick knew it. Brady knew it.

    09 was a pretty craptastic season. Besides Brady's 2 TD comeback win against the Bills and the Beatdown of the Titans, there wasn't a ton of stuff to enjoy. Constant collapses or blowouts on the road, bickering and whining in the papers, and dogs being faked at every turn. I'm glad the pieces we still have left are some great players, but a bunch of that roster was a Who's Who of Me-First Football. All these guys that came 'looking for a ring' must have forgotten they would need to earn it.

    We knew it too even though not many would admit it at the time. Theres definately a different feel to this team, this team has a legitimate shot to win the SB.

    That 09 team had Adalius Thomas who had nothing to offer at that point,Randy Moss was whining about getting a new contract and had Brady only one year removed from his injury and you could just tell he was looking for a low hit any moment and was easily under stress when the pocket got tight...he certainly was not himself that year.
