Pats in need of clear minds By Jim Lazar/ Bet Box Friday, September 22, 2006 - Updated: 09:22 AM EST One day these Patriots will get it. Bill Belichick will get it. Tom Brady will get it. Wesley Britt will get it, and he wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even here last season. Forget beating the Broncos. Forget anything remotely related to beating the Broncos. And definitely forget about revenge. If one thinks beating the Denver Broncos Sunday night - which is not going to happen - avenges last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s playoff defeat, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re living on Happy Street. The Patriots do not beat Denver, never have, never will. Yeah, they have beaten the Broncos 15 times in their 47-year rivalry (lost 25 times, too), but that win number sounds extraordinarily high. Consider that nine of those victories came before anyone of todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Patriots was even born. The Broncos are the PatsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ all-time nemesis, the ultimate back-breaking, season-spoiling, curse-provoking, mother of all heartbreakers. Always have been, always will. Even Belichick canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t beat Ã¢â‚¬â„¢em. Three Super Bowl titles, and his teams are 2-4 against the Broncos, losing four of the past five, including that awful, 24-13 debacle in January. Revenge? Ya kidding me! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been a lifetime of revenge against these guys ever since the PatsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ first game, a 13-10 loss on Sept. 9, 1960, the AFL inaugural at BU Field before 21,597 forever-cursing fans. Their revenge that season, a 31-24 loss in the rematch. From Frank Tripucka to Jake Plummer, the Pats have not, do not, can not, will not beat the Broncos. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s history, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ordained, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s over.
