    What is your view on the situation IF we win sunday do you care if its just a squeaker 1 point victory or will you be dissapointed if we don't win by double digits like the Colts demonstrated last night.

    Personally to me a win is a win even if it happens by way of a last second FG but I am sure to some fans you want your team to show total domination and want garbage time players in by the early 4th quarter.

    What is your view?

    To quote the movie "Mighty Ducks"

    "It ain't worth winning if you can't win big".

    Blow these clowns out.

    a win is a win...but we need to blow them out and set the tone for the rest of the season. No, i am not suggesting throwing the ball when you have a super lead like some teams would, but we need to stomp them in the neck

    When your team's involved, you always want a 42-0 rout. When other teams are involved, that 27-24 squeaker is far more entertaining.

    The Patriots have won three Super Bowls by a total of 9 points. As long as they win, I will be happy. The Brady bunch knows HOW to win...that's all that counts.

    a win's a win, but squeakers aren't good for the ticker as I get older. If I had to choose, I'd pick a blowout.

    But, I'll settle for a 1-pointer :cool:

    win by 1 - 90% satisfaction
    win by 7 - 94% satisfaction
    win by 14 or more - 98% satisfied
    win by 14 or more and Fireman dude starts crying on national TV and Mangini has a fit and gets ejected and Gostkowski hits a 50+ yarder - 100% satisfied

    I just want to win. Everyone thinks we have it in the bag. Lets not underestimate Mangina.

    Winning is what matters. But I do care a bit how the team looks and a big win would increase my sense of optimism about the season.

    I always want the win first and the team to play well second. But I would greatly prefer they play like crap in a 1 point win than play outstanding in a loss.

    I love the close, last second victories. Excitement. That's why I watch the game. But then a blow-out against the Jets would be sweet!

    a win is a win.

    however, a blowout would definitely be more enjoyable.

    a 1-point win would not be enjoyable if we were up big early and pissed the lead away.

    that said, coming back on the Jets after THEY went up big early and winning by 1 point would be very enjoyable as well. I'm reminded of the "tale of two halves" game in 2001 when Freddy Coleman made that huge catch.

    Exactly. It's not quite as simple as "a win is a win" to me. This is our first real look at the 2007 Patriots, and the early part of their season is brutal. I'd like them to come out strong out of the gate -- win, and look good doing it. The score isn't a big deal, though. A solid 17-10 victory, well played on both sides, would be terrific. A sloppy nailbiter where they eke out a win on a couple of lucky bounces would not be so terrific.

    You've just described week 1s game LAST year against Buffalo - The D in particular Wilfork won that game in the end zone.

    I don't care about the points, but I want to see Maroney with 100+ on the ground and Randy with at least 3 catches.

    acording to Ricky Bobby if your not first your last! So 1 point puts us in first in the division. That would be just fine with me. However I do admit seeing the fireman cryin' with his hat in hand from a blowout would be priceless!

    I agree a win is a win. Winning while no injuries are the most important. But it would be nice to totally embarrass Mangini and the Jets. I won't be upset if we win by 1 though.

    At this time of the year a blowout means nothing. But I too would like us to have one of thoses games where we win easily,not a nail bitter.

    Well, I have a feeling there will plenty of people who will be all gloom and doom if it's a win by one point squeaker. I might even be one of them, but I'm trying to remain rational.

    You can't compare this game to the Colts game...we are playing a division rival coached by our former defensive coordinator who knows us well. We also tend to start slower and build up a really strong chemistry towards December. So if it's a little sloppy, well, it usually is at first.

    A big win, no injuries annnnnndddd I wanna see BB bust out some more devastating moves to clear out the Photographers after the game. A hip toss or two would be fine; but I think he's ready for a nice, running body slam.

    I just want a win that being said I wouldn't mind Brady and Moss breaking the most reception and yardage records in a regular season contest.
