    Heres a good article by John Clayton on how the Patriots played to win, and the Chargers played not to lose...

    The final straw came with 2:31 left in regulation. Brady spotted the Chargers in press man-to-man coverage at the line of scrimmage. He hit Caldwell down the sideline for a 49-yard completion that set up Gostkowski's game-winning 34-yard field goal.

    It was the last play the Patriots made to win the game. The Chargers played not to lose. The Patriots played to stay in the game and give themselves a chance to make winning plays. In the end, that's exactly what they did.

    Wow Clayton with a good article...thats a first.

    Oh yes I just remembered. Lets see what that bastard Bill Simmons has to say. I used to be a huge fan of his but he said we'd be knocked out by the Ravens easy in the second round. Instead we knock off "the best team in the NFL" in the second round. Eat crow *****!

    Yeah he didn't feel confident against Baltimore but he did pick them to beat SD.

    "Didn't think so. Maybe the Patriots can't win in Baltimore (we'll get to that next week), but they can absolutely win in San Diego. And they will."
