I guess it took a few days to sink in, but the Patriots were up 21-3 and Brady had the ball at midfield. Brady and the offense also had the ball and the lead with around 3.00 minutes left and they were unable to run out the clock. I greatly respect the Patriots, but I wonder if this loss will have any lingering effects. Sometimes bad losses are the harbinger of bad things to come. I wonder how we will all look at this loss 10 years from now. It's the biggest collapse in conference championship history, but will it be one of those defining moments that changes the whole direction of the franchise? John Freidah (in today's Providence Journal) has the sick feeling that Tom Brady has played in his last Super Bowl.
