    At least somebody else is going to be wearing the freaking "Target" on their back next year. Two years of everybody in the NFL ramping up their efforts and laying their sights on us to knock us off was getting brutal! We played some really tough games as opponents played way over their heads at times trying to knock us off!

    I would have preferred to wear the target one more year but since it didn't happen we can look at the one positive of it. Most teams will be aiming at somebody else this time (while we quietly retool, refocus and go back to work again to get the target back!) :rocker:

    This is the most retarded post yet on the positives of losing. Give me a break. There is not a single fan here that would prefer no target over another ring.

    i wouldnt call it a positive that we have no target on our backs. I would say its more of a byproduct after giving up 5 turnovers in a playoff game and being eliminaited.

    I would have preferred the target, but it just didn't work out this year. We will be wearing that target again.

    Back off, the guy is just rationalizing, something we all do after adversity hits.

    Rationalizing should be based in reality or it should be called irrationalizing.

    I think that his premise is irrationalizing.

    I never made it to a Braves Field Pats game, but I saw the Boston Braves play there a few times (old fart here). First Pats game for me was at Fenway Park. That was a weird layout for a football game if there ever was one.

    You back off. The statement is retarded. There is no logic or rational thinking involved. The logic is sheer stupidity. You back off.

    The ONLY "positive" that I see from exiting out of the play-offs when we did is that it gives the Patriots and the staff an extra 3 weeks to recuperate. I honestly hope that Brady and Seymour turn down the Pro-Bowl game and stay home to rest.

    One of the biggest things people have said is that they believe that all the extra games that the Pats have played over the last 4 years (11 extra) probably took a toll on the team in terms of health.

    Well, here we go. The team has almost an extra month to get their schtick together. We'll see if it makes a difference.

    Should be a pretty darn good draft again.

    Edzo (2nd post of this thread) is right --- he said he'd rather wear the target. Stop bashing the guy.

    It is virtually unanimously agreed that it's tough to be the defending champs, everybody brings their "A" game against you, etc. etc. We've heard it a hundred times. Thus it seems highly logical that NOT being champs could be a bit easier in that department, as Edzo says. Of course we wish we were still champs --- he says so, too --- but since we're not, I agree that this is a small silver lining.

    Most importantly, MAYBE THIS WILL HELP KEEP DOWN OUR INJURY TALLY NEXT YEAR, with slightly-less-intense opponents. DaBruinz makes a good point on injuries, too.

    My first MLB games were at Braves field with Pop. I don't remember much except having a big bag of hot peanuts... After the Braves left, Pop never took me to another game until I went to Fenway as a teenager, myself. He couldn't abide the Country Club loafers & bums...
