    I wasn’t at Gillette Stadium this morning — thanks to the Sox, it was a late night for many of us media types — but thanks to the Patriots’ PR staff, here’s Bill Belichick’s Q&A with the media this morning: Did everyone get a good night sleep? What about you?*I couldn’t turn it [Red Sox playoff game] [...]

    I didn't even know BB was a red sox fan. But that right there is the difference between BB and many of the posters on this board. I bet the same folks that claim our 2 loses mean the season is over, turned off the TV when the sox were down 7-0.

    I had heard that there was some animosity between the two teams (Red Sox and Patriots). I assumed it was an ownership deal.

    Anyone know if there is any truth to that? They seem to get along well, with Guys going to Sox games and Red Sox players coming to Patriot games.

    In the past I recall hearing some things like that but I think it was more Kraft jealous of the Sox popularity and not really animosity between the orginizations or those in it. And I would imagine that the jealousy if it ever was truely in existance is probably long gone with the titles and continued rise in popularity of the Pats.

    I know in the past few years both Orginizations and owners have had nothign but praise for eachother. Inviting one another to share their triumphs with each teams respective fans at their Stadiums. I also believe they have many joint charity efforts as well.

    Ya think that might have been because when the Patriots have a sb parade the loudest chant is "Yankees suck"

    There ARE games that mean nothing that BB failed to mention

    Its called clinching Home Field Advantage throughout the playoffs before that particular game begins

    Apparently you didn't watch the regular season game between the Giants and the Patriots. BB didn't subscribe to the theory that the game means nothing.

    That was a rare circumstance so its dumb to even mention THAT

    It was a chance to go 16-0 - Only once was this in effect so of course it was meaningless to the playoffs but meant history so duh...:rolleyes:

    Otherwise guaranteed #1 seed and HFA in the playoffs is a sit down game for just about ALL starters and is a game that means N-O-T-H-I-N-G unless you are a dumb enough coach to play your starters and risk chances of injury

    What is dumber is calling out a coach because he says, "every game matters" and expecting he instead qualify "most games matter, some games don't matter cause it is the end of the season and your playoff standing is set" I would rather the coach just say "every game matters"

    our dumb coach played all starters VS SF in 2004 in the last game until the 3rd quarter even though they had locked in the 1st round bye. Same in 2003 vs buffalo.
    Trust me, if he sits the players and loses, you will be first to complain about rust.
    I would rather have them play instead of like the colts and titans having a handshake deal letting the titans win like last yr without calling a timeout at the end.
