    I mean, seriously.....when Tom went down I felt sick to my stomach, I wanted to see him (this offense) play since February, and when he didn't play in the pre-season, I was like, fine, but it will be exciting to see him in the regular season, and now this.

    To be brutally honest, I was thinking and partially think now that we are not going to win near as many games as if Brady would have played.

    It just sucks to be deprived of not watching this offense with Brady in it. I am sure Cassell will do an o.k. job.

    It just sucks, you know, it just sucks.

    Let the swelling go down, and the do the MRI to see what is what.

    As fans it is o.k. to be aprehensive a bit. I hope if Brady is out the team will rally behind each other like they have in the past....

    Good luck Matt and bring us through this sucky sh!ty time. I am looking forwar to seeing Brady back on the field, whenever that is....

    I puked. Literally got so worked up that I puked.

    The 2.5 beers and nachos I had already eaten helped, but I literally got sick to my stomach... missed the toilet a little too.

    I felt numb. there goes the bye week, there goes the redemption. it made last year's shafting all season long and in the last drive of the SB and losing the #1 pick who would have been a corner that much worse.

    I thought cassel was gonna be a train wreck, but he brought me back and gave me help. that goal line close to a safety had me dejected and then the moss catch was like a ray of sunshine in a thunderstorm.

    i don't see a bye week which makes the sb road that much tougher, but i think he can improve to manage the team and get a playoff spot.

    if any hope for a SB this has to be a total team effort and every single player needs to step it up a notch.

    I dont know, its just I dont have that much faith in Casell.. He could beat the chiefs, the raiders and zona , but he is not going to beat the jets, colts and chargers.. Im sorry just being.. I cant even talk, was at the game, the place was not the same, the energy was drained out of the team and the fans today, you could see that and feel that.. But we will press on , and hope for the best.. But its one week at a time now.

    Honestly I felt as if time stood still and I had just died or so. I felt pain in my heart and soul and barely even watched the rest of the game with much interest- I just couldnt get over it and the thoughts of what could have been...Typing this now is making me feel that way again,so I am outta here.

    How do I feel? Disappointed. Sad. For sure.

    But also, that we don't know whether this is a "Few Games" injury, a "Season Ending" injury or a "Career Ending" Injury. If it's an ACL, it's probably somewhere between a "Few Games" and "Season Ending."

    I also feel that Brady has brought so much more to this team and this franchise than any of us who have followed the Pats for as long as I have could ever have expected in our wildest dreams that I can only be grateful for what he has brought us.

    The future will be what the future will be. Five AFC Championship Games, Four AFC Championships and three SB wins in seven years, in the Cap/Free Agency Era... I'm fine with that. I'd like more, but I'm fine with it.

    Let's just say a prayer for this guy who has given us so much.

    ...yeah I was gonna say that in my post and forgot. You could almost hear a pin drop when Brady got hurt.

    It's almost like it's disbelief, going to bed now it kinda sucks just thinking about it.

    i wish I never liked this stupid team so much...:mad:

    Anyways Patriots nation, onwards are upwards....we will survive. Other parts of our team are solid, defense is good, the running game was good, ST was solid.

    We can compete. Let this serve as a challenge to the rest of the team to sharpen your focus and edge, razor sharp. I am sure Tom, if out, will help the team out in any way he can.

    We will not go quietly into the night!! Our season is NOT over primetime, you a-hole.

    this team will fight for each other.....you'll see.....

    I feel weird. Weird as in, ok.

    I was totally anguished until Cassel threw that first long pass to Moss, which may have been the most thrilling first-half moment of an early-season game I've ever witnessed. And some lightbulb came on.

    I'm a Patriots fan. This team probably won't resemble the imaginary team I'd conjured in my head, but it will be oh-so easy to root for. I feel just terrible for Tom Brady, but I'm not going to spend every Sunday until he returns living in what-ifs. Here's to a good season.

    Seriously, I'm excited. I want to see what Cassel can do. I'm tired of rooting for a team who blows people away 75-0 and feeling like it's a loss if they don't. The defence and running game looked good enough that we might see some old fashioned New England Patriots football before this season's done.

    I'm 100% serious with this post, I'm excited.

    First of all, I feel really upset over the loss last year. Because if we had won then maybe I would not have felt so numb today. However, I am curious as to what this team and coaching staff are truly made of. Go Pats!

    If you want to know the honest-to-God truth, I feel awful right now. The moment Brady got hurt, it felt like Super Bowl XLII all over again. Just a sinking feeling of helplessness.

    Now, I've been a Patriots fan long before Brady came into the league. The team has and will always be there. But I've believed that as long as the Patriots have Brady and Belichick, a Super Bowl is within reach. Take one of the two out of the equation and that casts some serious doubt in my mind.

    Perhaps I'm just mentally weak, but I'm angry that I've invested so much emotionally in this team. Because as high as the highs have been, the lows have been very, very low. My brother was talking to me on the phone, in denial about the injury. He said that he hated hearing me sound so pessimistic. I told him it's not that, it's just that I don't want to get my hopes up again, especially under these circumstances.

    Yes, this is football and injuries happen.

    Yes, I am but a fan, just like the rest of you, and these types of things are beyond our control.

    But it still sucks, to go through a whole season like last year, to fall short and have the scum of the world all pointing and laughing at your misery. And then to wait all spring and all summer for the Patriots to get redemption, only to see the MVP go down in the first quarter of the first game. It's unfair, and the reality is we will get no sympathy from anyone else. Not with the sick society that tap dances when a player gets injured.

    I'm angry. I don't want to talk to anybody about it, and it's taken me some courage to even discuss it on this board with you guys. At the same time, I'm loyal to a fault, and will still root for the team, through thick and through thin. Even though I feel devastated, even though I'm holding a shred of hope that there will be better results from the MRI tomorrow.

    I didn't want to see a season without Tom Brady leading the way. But it looks like we may have no other choice. The season is not over, it's only just begun. But I've never felt so miserable after a win. Never.

    It hit me in phases. First was disbelief, next was elation for Matty. After the game I was bummed and now I'm back on top again. The Pats have the best coach in the known universe and a lot of talent. It's going to be positively over the top if they beat the Jets next week.

    BTW Patchick...you rock!

    It's still a bit surreal, this whole thing. Opening day, new season, and 15 minutes later I felt like someone died.

    It's sickening what happened to our Tommy- the very thing we've dreaded all along. I guess the dreading part is over now:(

    Thankfully we won today and Matt did a great job which helps a little bit. We have no choice but to move on and hope for the best.

    I think this is the worst 2 game stretch I (all of us, most likely) have ever experienced. My stomach still hurts, and even with the Vicodin I doubt I will sleep well tonight. And I know this is probably dumb because he already has SB rings, records, millions of dollars, a supermodel gf, and a beautiful son; but I really feel bad for Tom. Playing is what he's all about, and he must be ridiculously frustrated.

    BUT...

    I think this will weed out alot of the fairweather fans we've seen lately. I remember what it was like just hoping to get into the playoffs and see what happens. Also, expectations that have been on this team for the last few years have to have been rough on everyone, and this will almost be like a break.

    I feel like I have been robbed of one of lifes greatest pleasures, the NFL season. I'll still watch with Cassell, but it really sucks knowing that winning the superbowl is nothing more than a dream.

    heres what I'm thinking: Who is the number 1 pick next year?

    now here's what I mean: Cassell looks ok actually pretty good considering. This team is still extreemly strong easily an 11 win team with a little bit of effort. What would an 11 win QB fetch from the likes of SF, TB, MN, and maybe STL? if not a 1st pick at least a 1st rounder

    in other words maybe not a SB victory but we may come out of this yet smelling like a fist full of roses

    I agree, but the inj he has its now saying a acl and mcl tear, he may not be the same for 2 yrs, and that is 2 prime Moss and Brady yrs gone.. That is what hurts the most.. Not saying brady will not play next yr, but its not going to be the same for 2 yrs..


    Its the beggining of the season,but right now it feels like the end, again we will move forward .. Im trying to be positive, 1 week at a time

    Except that Cassel is a FA next year. If he performs well, I expect the Pats to re-sign him. As someone else posted, right now, maybe I'm numb with disbelief, but I feel better.

    This team needs some good old fashioned adversity, and they now have it in spades. They can still make the playoffs, despite an improved division, and it's not like the Chargers & Colts are looking like world beaters week 1 either.

    It certainly will make for an interesting and memorable year, and that's what sports is all about.

    I feel nothing. Just like the superbowl. I watched the superbowl and just sat there feeling numb, the entire time. It didn't even seem like I was watching the Patriots. And now, I feel the same way. Moss has maybe one year left at his peak and then will most likely decline. Who even knows if he'll play at 110% for Cassell? He's probably just as upset as anyone!

    I looked forward to today for so long. I took punishment from every Giants fan I know this offseason. I knew that when the season started, things would turn around. This is NOT what I expected, however, it's part of the game. I'm not sure what to think. 8-8? 11-5? Anything could happen.

    I feel enormously sorry for him. He's just suffered a serious injury, how can you not? All the money in the world doesn't mean you don't need two good legs to walk on.

    The worst I ever felt after watching a football game was the Stingley game. This doesn't come close. It's about on a par with Gale Sayers tearing up his knee against the 49ers back in the 60's.

    I didn't even notice Brady was hurt at first. I was watching to see if Moss was going to catch the pass. My GF had her binoculars and saw the hit. That's when I noticed because she yelled "Brady's Down!" I just pray it's not too serious, for his sake.

    I agree. Plus I feel bad that he MAY have to miss a year in which to add to his HOF credentials. As a Pats fan I hope for the best that can be expected from tomorrows MRI. From the team standpoint I feel confident that if Brady could do what he has in the last 7-8 years I can only hope Cassel can be half of that. Go Pats!
