"...win the whole f**king thing." - "Jake Taylor", Major League Alright, we're all in the dumps b/c we can't watch our SB DVD's anymore without trying to fast-forward through those clutch kicks BUT if you think about it, this will actually INCREASE our chances of winning the SB next year. What's happening this offseason is that we're letting go of the "fat and happy" players that showed they are content w/ their rings and are chasing the dollars. We need more hungry players on this team. Last year, we weren't hungry enough to get the job done and it showed. We need a "cleansing" and this is it. Also, the loss of these players is sure to have the media declaring the end of the Pats as we know it, you know what - good. Last year everybody thought we were better than we actually were, thinking we were a sure bet to beat Denver - and then the Broncos used that to their advantage in beating us. The Pats NEED everybody to doubt them to play their best. We're all hurt, and we should be. But it doesn't have to be the end of the world, perhaps the beginning of something new. BB is going to be coaching this team and Brady is going to be QB for a while, so we'll have to keep the faith and rally behind our 2006 Pats!
