    After that SB win against the Eagles

    2005-6 against Broncos
    2006-7 against Colts AFCCG
    2007-8 against Giants (SB)
    2008-9 season lost to Brady injury
    2009-10 against Ravens
    2010-11 against Jets
    2011-12 against Giants (SB)


    Most crushing losses. Emotionally drained rooting for our team. We do the irght things, we play the way game is supposed to be played with class, yet the these crushing losses after another


    I just feel totally empty. Not just the losses, but the way Patriots continue to lose in big games. Yes, luck has lot to do with the way ball bounced tonight, but............I dont know what else to say.

    Absolutey sad.

    But sun will come out tomorrow, life goes on and world has many more problems than just one game. Selfishly I suppose I wanted our team to win but not in the stars.......

    Nothing else but emptiness :(

    At least we made the super bowl. That's something that most teams can't say.

    After watching how bad we were the first few games of the season, I consider making it to the super bowl and losing quite a good season.

    Brady clearly has some psychological issue that he needs to overcome in these big games. He simply doesn't look like himself. I suspect it is likely over-preparation, where he's too busy THINKING and not reacting.

    Disappointed, but I thought that was one heck of a good super bowl. Pity the other team made more plays than us. But that's football.

    The only good game Brady has had in the past five years is against a bad Broncos team. What happened to this guy?

    I just didn't see the awesome catches being made by our guys.someone has to catch the ball, you know. Our guys just don't seem to do it at the right time.

    Hey, maybe if we had Tiquan Underwood....

    Did luck have anything to do with our win against Baltimore? Why didn't you include the wins against Denver and Baltimore on your list? How about going to SD in 06 and stealing that game? Hey, things seem to even out over a long period of time. No one feels worse than I do, but we have a team that's in the hunt every, single effing year and will be until BB and TB hang them up. And that's not happening for a while.

    Thats the way i felt after the last SB loss to the Giants, it ruined me as a sports fan. This game wasn't so bad for me because i never allowed myself to get emotionally involved anymore. After that loss i became numb. Plus i never thought the team would make the SB, the way things have been going i considered winning a play off game as a successful season.

    This...........Although i didn't think he played that bad, certainly not like he did against B-more. There were a lot of dropped passes

    As exhillarating the Pats 3 Super Bowls were, these 2 loses to the Giants are such a punch in the gut I don't remember the joy of those Super Bowl wins.

    The tough thing for me, is that its not only me, but my teenager daughter. She is still crying her eyes out, and is inconsolable. I sort of feel guilty for turning her into a Pat fan. She wouldn't have to go through the heartache I am feeling.

    Its unfortanate she was too young to enjoy the Super Bowl wins, now she only remembers the loses. I really pray she gets to experience a Super Bowl win, but I am starting to lose hope.

    Yes there have been frustrating losses, but how many teams have 5 SB appearances and had a legit chance to win all 5. It sucks. You win some, you lose some. However, I am proud to be a fan regardless even though I will avoid all the media shows for about a month.

    It is scary. During the regular seasons he is incredible. In the playoffs he really feels the pressure and the team must overcome his mistakes in order to win as in the Ravens game.

    In the story line that is the NFL, a year by year story telling. We have watched the Power of the AFC, lined up, and disappointed.

    After Dominating the the Champioships sine 01, the AFC sent 3 teams to win them all. The Colts, Steelers, and Pats all went and won Super Bowls as the continual dominant team.


    Pats, Steelers, Colts, and Pats all have lost in the biggest stage. Showing that although they are talented and strong teams, they are no longer the class of the league.

    When you consider how bad the D was back in sep, oct, and part of nov just making the SB was pretty good.

    Agree 100%. There will be posters who will say how lucky we were to have won Superbowls 8 - 11 years ago. But that doesn't help the kids.

    Same story for me. I watch every game and root for them but I don't make a dime if they win. I did not expect anything from them this year and they got me through half the winter. I am happy. Would have loved it if they won but its not like I lost something because of it. Its a hell of a lot better than being a Colts fan :D

    3 things.

    You need a bit of luck to win one.
    We will be back in 2/3 years.
    Thank God we not the Bills. Lost 4 in a row and never won any.

    They have it rough? You mean going to the play-offs every year except for 1 since 2000? You mean going 27-5 in the regular season the last 2 years? You mean winning 2 play-off games this year and going to the SB? Yeah, they have had it rough, you're right...
