    Why can't we all be more level headed? After week 1, some of you people wanted to prematurely crown the Pats as Superbowl winners. Now after this loss to the Jets, some of the same people are acting as though the world is ending.

    Chill out. It's one game. They got beat on the road in a tough environment. I'm not making excuses for our favorite team here. They played a poor second half of football. But let's not over react and start acting like they suck and the world is over. They will learn from it and be a better team from it.

    It's so disappointing to see how fickle some of our fellow Patriots fans are...

    Seriously, The Pats should cruise to an easy 2-1 unless something goes HORRIBLY wrong next week. Then it is time for the next huge test of the season away at Miami. If the Pats can win there and go into their bye 3-1 then they will be in great shape. The next game will be a difficult road game at the Chargers and going 4-1 there, knocking off perhaps our two toughest road games, will put us in a great position.

    ill write this year cuz i dont feel like starting a different thread for it:

    the jets came to play today, and we did not, the jets treated this like what it was, or like more than it was...

    they treated it as a heated division rivalry game, they treated it as a playoff game, they treated it as a superbowl


    we came in thinking of it only as another game....for us it was simply week 2 of the nfl season, win or lose there are another 14 games to go

    the same approach is taken by many ppl on this board, and its taken by belicheck too.....

    unfortunately when a team plays like the latter when facing a team that plays like the former chances are it will get its ass handed to it, and thats what happened

    they were fired up, we were mellow, and in football that is all the difference that was needed.....

    we dont suck as a team, we just didnt want this W as bad as the jets wanted this W, and that goes back to the head coaching styles....Rex will passionate his players for a specific game...BB will not, its not his philosophy


    were better than we played today, but well be MUCH better once the players start acting like playing football is not just a job

    This team no longer has the mentality to win big road games. That was proven last year time and time again. Today was a continuation of that. They can play well for a time, then when the rubber meets the road -- in the second half -- they piss down their legs.

    Heh, blind homerism in your mind = anything other than utter contempt for the team. I'm convinced you're simply one of our resident contrarians who is too afraid to post under the regular username while you revel in the Pats loss.

    On ignore.

    Do you even know me? Don't call me a homer again. I didn't say they played well. I even pointed out that they played very poorly. Sorry that I'm not freaking out and acting as though the world is over. If that makes me a homer, then yeah....OK?


    Idiot. Just go away. Imagine if BB or Brady freaked out like little school girls at the first sign of adversity like some of our fellow "fans" here do...

    And it's also quite annoying how people toss around the term "homer" WAY too easily. Just cause someone doesn't piss all over their favorite team and act like their life is over after ONE game means they are a homer? Man, the lack of logic with some people is amazing.

    Last year has nothing to do with this year. It really doesnt.
    If there are specific chokers on the team that are still here, then it might, If there were philosophical issues, it might.
    I dont see either.
    It was one game. While fans want every game to tell the future, they simply do not.
    The Patriots will improve, every team will improve throughout the season.
    The general consensus of this board was that the Pats and Jets would fight to the end for the division. If that is accurate, why are people dangling from the ledge over losing a road game to a team they consider a tough competitor in the division? In September? We lost division games in September, worse than this, in 2001 and 2003. There is no more meaning in this loss that 1 in the L column.
    If it makes you feel better to bemoan the doom that will follow, knock yourself out. If it makes you feel better to find the silver lining, go right ahead. At this point neither is any more correct than the other.

    It takes a mind greater than yours to see how stupid that comment is. (Thankfully, we all have one.)

    I said that I have been saying for a month the Jets may have the worst offense in the NFL. Today I was wrong, but bad offenses have good days. I predicted the Jts would score 10 points today. What did you predict?

    3 to perhaps 5 more times this year we'll have this thread.

    9 to 14 times we'll have didn't _______ play great today threads.

    So this is the inevitable chill out thread probably written by a fan who needs some chill out support themselves.

    EPIC RERUN of a thread.

    Maybe we should rename these threads ... "Ernest goes to camp again" thread.

    when we lose we get the running game, OC, DC, etc ... threads.

    When we win we get the we're moving in the right direction threads.

    Yeah, I love how nobody can make a prediction unless it's on this board. Fantasy land, man. Fantasy land.

    When the schedule was announced I saw the Pats opening against two playoff teams from 2009, one at home and one on the road. I hoped for 2-0, feared for 0-2, and expected 1-1.

    There was probably more optimism than what was merited a week ago, and over the next 48 hours there will surely be more pessimism than what is deserved as well. Yeah, of course we all wanted the Pats to beat the Jets, but after all is said and done the two teams are both 1-1 with 14 games to go. It's a loss - there will probably be about four or five more this year - so hopefully the players and coaches will learn from it, make corrections, and quickly move on.


    With any luck, fans will do the same.

    You could link to where else you made it. There is a prediction thread on this board. You have made numerous posts.
    If you are unwilling to state what you predict, you are a hypocrit for calling someone else out for theirs.

    I'm surprised you actually bother to make predictions each week. I guess the big drama is when you pick the Pats to win by one TD instead of three.

    But yeah, I'll be making them from now on big guy. Bank on that. :D

    It's cute and underhanded that you several times tried to imply that I am a bandwagon fan because I am not freaking out about the loss today... True fans, you may be. But logical? Nope. Some of you get too high with a win and too low with a loss. It's just illogical....Just because I don't agree with saying the world is over after a loss does not mean that I am a homer or not a good fan. Only a bandwagon fan or an idiot would even suggest that. It's not a contest of fandom like some of you like to believe sometimes....

    I made this thread because I think fans need to try to keep a more even keel, so to speak...It's one loss. Let's see what our favorite team is made of and how they react to this loss...This is a different team than last year.

    It's suprising and pathetic how much the term "homer" gets tossed around here. And it's lame how people try to compare fandom around here. I'm a real fan, don't question it again.

    Strong e-thuggery as usual. Keep using patsfan.com as a catalyst to talk sh't to people. Hopefully there will come a point soon where you no longer feel it necessary to do so.
