    Accomplishment. When you lose your MVP of the team, it's hard to replace him.

    I am waiting for you to say you will donate $50 to this forum if the Pats get in as a wild card and $100 if they make it in as division champs and you will donate your house if they win the conference,Your first born if they GET to the Super Bowl and your (insert body part here) if they WIN the Super Bowl :)




    (To answer your question,ANY playoff entry makes for a successful season)

    Definite accomplishment. The last 3 champions were wild cards.

    A bye would be nice, but at this point I'll gladly take a spot as the 6th seed. As long as the players give BB a shot. Our offense is fine, they've proven they can pound you or they can spread you out and erase an 18 point deficit. The defense needs work, namely the pass defense. Good news is we have BB and Capers to work on improving in that area and we already can stop the run which is the priority.

    Does this season look a bit like 2002 or what?

    Miami,NE and the Jets were tied in the division late and NE was the odd man out at 9-7 even though they came from behind to beat a division opponent Miami in the last game.

    Deja vu perhaps?:eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Good Point! But we didn't just lose the MVP of the team, we lost the MVP of the entire freaking N-F-L!

    It all comes down to injuries this year and nothing else. Losing the greatest, most dangerous, and most IMPORTANT player in the league.....was enough to de-rail us from the get go......Then more key injuries.....and more....etc.

    If this group can somehow still make the playoffs in ANY capacity......It will be a tremendous accomplishment. I just hope no matter what happens at the end of this year....that the players can look at themselves and each other and say "Well we gave it everything we had"......Because all too often this year, seems like some players are taking a game off.....or going at it half a##ed........Hopefully they will all step it up in the next few weeks........

    Lastly, next year.....is a HUGE draft year and FA year for us........Need big time help in the secondary obviously.......and LB corps......probably another RB.....a fair amount of holes to fill on this team.....

    GO PATS!!!!!!!!!

    Ive been saying this for awhile now. I do think the outcome will be different, with the Pats on top this time, but it does concern me a little. Besides, we wont have Norv Turner to help us win our last game this time :D

    Yes it feels quite accomplishing giving up a 3rd and 15 in overtime.

    It's funny that people are questioning this at all - how spoiled have we been :confused:

    People aren't spoiled, they see the staff and players on the field and standards are accordingly raised.

    Prior to the season, had you told people the injuries we'd face this would be an overwhelming accomplished. Now that the season is actually in progress and after seeing us blow two important games in three weeks with a shot of being 1 game behind the 1st seed Titans, people standards are raised.
