Tough physical hard nosed close game is a good thing for the Patriots to experience this time of the year especially coming into games against the Ravens and Steelers. It's good for this team to get punched in the nose. Keeps them grounded and keeps them focused. Belichick was on the Real Post Game show at 1:00 am this morning and sounded pretty darn upbeat about the team. He was far from upset by this close win. No team is going to win big every game and no team is going to win pretty every game. Just not going to happen. The sign of a great team is to win when you don't play your best and when you come from behind to win. All credit to the Eagles for playing a great game. All credit to the Patriots for making the big plays when they had to. The sign of a great team. Get ready for a weeks worth of "blueprint" and "exposed" talk. Didn't we hear this after the Indy game too? Nothing has changed except new talking points for the media. :blahblah: The ONLY team that's going to beat the New England Patriots IS the New England Patriots. Blueprint my ***!!
