    The chargers having nothing to do with this. Pats got lucky a little bit in that game but I clearly recall the chargers were outcoached. Marty decided (god knows why) to go for it on 4th down in the first quarter instead of taking the FG and the chargers were 3 points short at the end.

    That non-call on PI was so obvious there's no point even arguing about it..

    I'm saying we would have won the AFCCG with Branch because the only WR worth something on that team was Troy Brown (considering all the others weren't picked up by any team the following year..)

    I have it from a reliable source (LT) that the Chargers would have won 9 times out of 10. Please, give the Chargers some credit. :rolleyes:

    BTW, we're now up to the Chargers winning 36 times out of 40 (after the subsequent 3 games have been played ;) ).

    This thread is a ban-worthy offense in this forum. Because to imply the Patriots would have been better off having kept Deion Branch all those years ago, maybe even to the tune of another championship, implies that Bill Belichick actually made a mistake.

    If you publicly apologize to all members and the moderators and give yourself 100 lashes with a wet noodle, you may be allowed to continue to contribute.

    ...and the Giants were lucky to beat the Pats in SB 42. So what.

    Sometimes the best team doesn't deserve to win because they screwed up in critical moments. That is the legacy of great teams that don't win it all.

    exactly. I agree. Pats won in 2001, Giants won in 2007. It just the fact of the NFL.

    It swings both ways.

    They had two 1st round picks in 2007. Had Branch been a Pat, I still believe the Pats could've traded up for Merriweather with their assigned pick instead of trading with San Fransisco.

    If they took somebody in 2007 and Branch was still a Patriot, Mayo's playing for the Lions (or so they say).

    Agreed. Dunno where all this revisionist history is coming from, there was nothing wrong with the 2007 offense. If either Neal or Brady is healthy for SB42, or if Mankins doesn't decide to go and have the worst game of his career, the Pats win it and go 19-0 in style. Because that didn't happen, now we're inventing random reasons why the 2007 offense couldn't get it done? No thanks, count me out.
