i thought to myself. where are the trolls and remembered Ian's hard work. This board has been therapeutic. almost all are pats fans and the ones who aren't have been classy. yesterday was frustrating with the board congested and not being able to get on. it's only football but it's nice to hear other people's comments and we still have alot to look forward to. I know deep down the team was taken for granted. I expected easy victories. Every week is gonna be a nail biter on the edge of the couch. I'm looking forward to the Jets game to see how the Pats will deal with adversity and what they have cooked up on offense and defense. Also how many will elevate their play. Thanks to Ian for circling the wagons. and to the dedicated posters stay on the train because out of the station and hopefully will pick up steam each week. I hope pats1 is back eating. so thanks dedicated pats fans.
