    No, it'll be a slap in the face, if the Packers game wasn't one. We lose tomorrow, we're gonna beat the Dolphins 59-0.

    We're 24 hours away from the game even starting and you're trying to figure out if you should panic if we lose??? :bricks:

    Just start panicking now. Might as well get a head start...

    Every game thread has the same who panic through the game ... at every negative play.

    We've won 6 games in a row, overtaking the previous division leaders with a 45-3 win, then gaining another game the next week. Please explain how the division is "slipping" away???

    Yeah, I'll be panicking with Tom Brady playing a must-win game at home in January against a team from south Florida that's out of the play-offs. I'd bet my house, both cars and anything else I could get my hands on...

    Bills winning combined with the Bears loss equals only a half game lead....

    No, it will just mean that we lost to a fired-up Division Opponent in the snow on the road after a series of tough victories.

    A loss would just have the "Cleveland Effect" and put these guys in an ornery mood for the Miami game, when they will already have already clinched the Division and a Bye and Home-field because the Bears are going to beat the Jets tomorrow (take it to the bank).

    The only real problem I can see coming out of a loss to the Bills is that Belichick might have to play some guys that he would otherwise have rested against the Fins in a meaningless game so the Pats head into the post season with some momentum and not just backing into the Playoffs, like the Colts did last year.

    It wouldn't be a must-win game. The Jets are going to lose to the Bears in the wind and snow in Chicago tomorrow. So, the only question, hypothetically, would be whether BB would start guys he would otherwise have rested if they were coming off a loss, which I don't think they will be doing anyway.

    nah, When you wake up in bed after a spectacular night of drinking, and find a naked and sweaty Rex Ryan next to you, and you have no idea where your wife is – it’s time to panic…

    Nope...........Bills could surprise, but, I do not see Jets beating the Bears, so, we wrap it all up anyway.

    That is the benefit of taking care of business as this team has done in Nov & dec.

    Even if jets win and we lose, KNOW WAY would the Dolphins win.

    I do not see any indication of a total team collapse from this years group.

    So, to answer your question - NO WORRIES and I will see you all in Dallas!!

    :rofl: I don't think I've ever heard the term oxygen thief. And I can't believe I've lived this long without using it. Thank you!

    Whoa whoa whoa. The game hasn't even been played yet. You cannot say something is happening before any of it happens.

    Today, you cannot say the division is slipping after we win 6 games in a row and go from a half game back to 1 and a half games up. That is NOT slipping. That is the exact OPPOSITE of slipping.

    It's like saying the stock market is down right after it goes up. Or saying it's raining when the sun is up. It makes no sense whatsoever.

    IF we lose tomorrow AND the Jets win tomorrow, THEN you can say it's slipping. But today, no. Today, you can only say the team has gained 2 games in 6 weeks in the division. That is the truth.

    You know, i don't think the Bears care much whether they win tomorrow or not since they already win their division. So they probably lay it low and let the Jets win, and the Bills probably know how important this game is to the Patriots so they gonna probably go for every 4th and 1 in their own 40 just so we have to fight like hell to win...it's gonna be a tough game tomorrow...I hope we in though..

    Of course there will be panic - can you imagine if the NYJ go into Chicago and win and the Patriots lose to Buffalo? People will be going off the deep end. The media will go crazy with stuff like - the Patriots are trending down, the NYJ are trending up; the patriots will be a one and done team, etc., etc.
    I just don't want the division and first seed to come down to the last week against Miami. Wrap it up now, with one game to go. Get people some rest. Think of it - if they can wrap it up Sunday they can give people EXTRA rest next week against Miami - not saying don't play guys, but play them a half or a quarter. The last few games of this series have been awfully close (save for 2007 blowouts), and I don't think I can handle another one!!!!!

    Chicago is still in the hunt for a bye week, no???? Methinks if that's the case they'll go all at it tomorrow against the NYJ.....

    Yes, they've got a good chance at the #2 seed and technically they still have an outside shot at #1.

    Ummmm, this.

    Remind me again, why are we already talking about a losing a game to a 4-10 team we play twice a year, and haven't lost too since 2002?

    wtf?? This place is unreal.

    I can't imagine this forum in 2007. It must have been near comical near the end of the regular season.

    Oh don't worry, we've seen your act already. Here, let me help you out for tomorrow's game:

    Situation - The Pats don't score right away

    Your Comment - "Not feeling confident right now"

    Situation - The Pats get a penalty

    Your Comment - "Get him of the field, that just probably cost us the game"

    Situation - The Bills score first or get the lead in the first quarter

    Your Comment - "I hope the Bears can take down the Jets because this one is over for the Pats and likely the division"

    Situation - The Pats win the game

    Your Comment - Great game, I knew they'd win :rocker:
