I am going to wait until watching again to comment on the SB. My state of shock seems to have affected my memory of the game. But, a few thoughts on my mind outside of the game itself -At first I thought Dynasties dont lose SBs, then I realized all of the dynsaties that won every SB they played in lost before getting to it in the other years. -I would trade as many of the 18 wins as necessary to have gotten the last one. -I think of this season as a failure, because we did not achieve what we had every opportunity to. -I will think of this season as a success from a long view, however. I can't discount 18 games that were, IMO, the best 18 game stretch any team has ever played. Altohugh they disappointed in the most important one, they still only disappointed one time in 19 tries. -I've come to associate big game clutch charateristics to the Pats. But now 2 years in a row they have not had them. They simply didnt do any of the things I would have expected on sunday, after last season ending with a poor job in the clutch in Indy. -I dont know how or where it happened, but the Pats have lost that big game edge. THAT is what needs to change going forward. We will be in the hunt for many years, but that clutch play attribute is what we need back. Overall, its hard to call this anything but a good year that ended disappointingly.
