    It was sad when the Pats were eliminated last week but just as I begin to recover from the sadness,the freaking Dolphins get manhandled by the Ravens and proving that even though the Phins were deserving of the great turnaround and won the division,the Patriots were 'off paper' the best team in the East and would have given the Ravens all they could have handled today.

    I could sit here and pull my hair out knowing we would have had a 10x better chance to be heading to Tennessee next week than Miami did,but I can't let it get to me.


    Oh,Well life goes on ....

    uh yeah, very fair. I'd say the Pats win a close one. Chad pennINgTon was atrocious today...MVP-caliber my azz....oh well the bullseye is on your back Miami!

    Please don't remind me :mad::(

    Just further proof that this year just wasn't meant to be when you see this garbage in the playoffs instead of us.

    We had our chances.

    Clearly we're the superior team and I really thought we were capable of making a run, all that could have been...

    Don't forget the fact that 2 winnable games we had that were decided by a total of 6 freaking points (@ Colts - Jets) were the difference between 11-5 and 13-3 and would have been the #2 seed :mad:

    People in here want Asomugha IN 2009 but I would give much more $$$ and draft picks away for an Ed Reed in our secondary than to give it to a CB from a bad team.

    Pats would've given them a game and even casual fans would have watched it as opposed to probably flipping that baby off and watching something else instead. I hope Goodell's happy. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a crappy,one-sided SB.

    Well actually, Miami had 0 chance of going to TN because they'd have gone to Pittsburgh (Pitt plays the higher seed). Just a minor point, but I share your frustration.

    Look at another way: If we were to supplant Miami with the Pats then a very physically worn Pats team (Baltimore can do this to you) would be going to Pittsburgh. IF we somehow beat the Steelers, we'd be traveling to TN or hosting SD with probably 3/4 of our squad either questionable or out on the injury report.

    Put Asomugha in a good team such as ours and watch to see what happens...

    It's a salivating proposition.

    If Pennington played like he played all season they would have won. Just like if the Patriots played like they did all season they would have one. Good defensive teams makes their opponents not look like themselves. Ravens earned it
