    Like most fans iam dissappointed. I lived week in week out with the pats. Friends told me get a life.The best part of the football season was the weeks leading up to the games and the +ve postmortems week after on this board and other media sources. At this point iam limited to just checking this board since i feel at home. i moved out boston last week so being out of the local land makes it even more tougher. No sports channels or newspapers or sports sites since last night.
    I simply don't know what to do .I really dont want to vent on ifs and buts of the game or call anybody out because the team gave me much joy throughout the season .Just nothing to look forward to right now which gives an empty feeling. Last i felt such was after the aaron boone walk off.

    Shockingly well. I am disappointed, of course, that our one chance for a 19-0 season is gone. But I'm actually in a good mood, energetic and having a pretty good day. Not sure why given the number of people who keep bringing up the damn game at work. Jeez, when their dog dies I'll have to remember to point it out to them. But WAY, WAY, WAY better for me than the playoff loss last year. No sports stuff, though, this is the only place I'm reading/watching related to sports for a while.

    I decided during the Pats last possession I wasn't going to let it effect me personally. I stated in a post last night, it's something that happened to a team I'm a fan of and has no direct impact on my life. It was a fun season and I'm moving on and looking forward to August when the Pats take the field again. :rocker:

    I was planning on staying away from here and PP for a few weeks so I could just get away from football but that has been the hardest thing ever. Like you I lived football week in and out. I honestly dont know what to do til next season, but other than patriot's sites im avoiding all football talks. I do feel a bit better coming on here bc being outside of the NE area not many ppl truly can relate to how I feel. However there is more to be said from this dynasty, so until then I shall hold my tongue. For now, I've decided to skip classes and possibly go shopping...that usually makes me feel better.

    Healthy outlook. It's entertainment pure and simple. Hurt's that they lost but it's doesnt really effect any part of my life unless I let it.

    i get how your feeling. i'm only doing a little better. but the cloud seems to lift a little with each passing hour. whatever you do, don't watch the news tonight or read a sports page for another couple of days. i tossed all of our papers unread. i live in manhattan and couldn't bear even to look at them.

    Like some others, I was determined to stay away for a couple of weeks. I am seriously bummed out and disappointed. I was sure that the Pats would roll on.

    My biggest issues were play calling, refs, and performance in that order. Giants have a very good D, but our line was terrible. Big non-calls by the refs.

    Think I'll go have a drink!!!

    i was shocked and i cried a lot. i cheered up at the end of school but since i live near san diego, all my friends laughed and did nothing more. i expected my friend, who is a buckeyes fan and knows what it feels like to lose the big game to comfort me, but turns out he's a prick.

    im not half as mad as i was right after the game but im just mad that we have to wait so long for next season to start..i hope this game didnt kill the teams confidence & they come out just as strong as they did this season. i still think the patriots are the team to beat even they though they lost yesterday..GO PATS!!

    1) Skipped classes.
    2) Used this outlet to express myself with other die-hards.
    3) Tried to think about the upcoming season.

    Frankly, I'm sublimating: every time I get the itch to check ESPN.com, or PFT, or any of those other sites, I step away from the computer, and do something else. It's quite liberating.

    Needless to say, I'm giving sports talk a rest for a couple of weeks: I've got dozens of CDs in my car, so I should be OK.

    Yo...did you ever go over to the Fox Sports Grill in the Spectrum Center to watch any of the games this year with the OC Patriots Fan Club? Upstairs loft.

    i have not but i live extremely close to the spectrum and i go there about every 2 weeks. it is only a ten minute drive. i gotta check it out next season. probably too young though. definitely probably too young if theres alchohol involved.

    I too skipped class today. This one was tough to swallow and I didn't want to hear it in person from everyone. Nobody will really know how we feel unless it happens again to their team. Funny thing is the people that have been talking crap most, aren't even giants fans, but now I have to go to work and face my boss who is an actual giants fan. I'm not looking forward to the rest of the evening. Regardless of what happened yesterday, I will still sport my pats attire and look forward to next season. The fact that there is not a football game for another 6 months is also very depressing.

    I was really pissed off and depressed last night after the game. Today at work wasn't so bad. I just kept busy and the one guy here who actually cares about football is really cool so he didn't give me any grief.

    I'm not about to log on to espn.com or read the sports section of the newspaper and let that bring me down.

    OMFG, I had the TV on some sitcom and they just started playing the Disney Superbowl commercial. I scrambled to shut the TV off but now I am pissed. Now I guess I have to leave the damn TV off.

    Very hard to let this one go. I think the more years you root for a team, the more you realize that it's not very often that the stars come into alignment like they did this season. The Patriots' next Superbowl could be in 2009--or 2039.

    I actually got compliments today from people about how well I was dealing with it. All of them were very cool, but unsympathetic...Eagles, Bills, Steelers, and Dolphins fans. They still hate on the other 3 we have. :D

    Man...I work at the Portland Press Herald and I couldn't avoid all the newspapers EVERYWHERE! The talk about wasted $$ on pre-printed wraps and sales cards. It was non-stop. It was a hard day but now I'm home, I control my environment and I only need to read some posts here to put things in perspective. It hurts. I'm shocked. It sucks, but I'm trying to move on. I love off-season stuff too. It should be another interesting year, to say the least. I find myself feeling bad for players like Seau and Brown and Bruschi but then I think...they're going to be fine! They don't worry about me and my sucky day w/dramatic front pages shoved in my face every second! LOL!

    Last night was pretty horrible. I was faced with the fact that all of my buddies are Giants fans and I don't have any Pats fan friends. So, I watched the game with 10 Giants fans. You can imagine how crazy they went and how much grief they gave me. Right after it was over my cell got lit up by my Colts fan friend. Luckily I had requested today off prior so I didn't have to worry about people giving me a hard time at work. This loss definately hurts. Losing to the NYG, losing the perfect season, giving up the game winning drive, the whole thing sucks.

    In terms of coping today, I figured I would feel better in the AM...wrong! Today I have been replaying everything in my mind. Maybe something is wrong with me! I shouldn't care this much! I avoided the television like the plague, checked in here, went grocery shopping, tried to forget about everything.
