    They were 2-0 in it until 2007, obviously that meant a whole lot.

    Jersey color isn't going to impact the game in a jinx fashion. If anything I'd think it would give a (minimal) psychological edge, as I long ago read that dark jerseys make a player look more physically imposing.

    Was it the uniforms running wild through our OL that hit Brady 20+ times?

    Re: Patriots to wear the blue Jersey again!

    As much as no one will probably agree with your statement, at the time in 2007-2008, I think it may have some merit.

    When you consider that the NYG's were the "road warriors" that yr, winning 11 straight on the road, I may have chosen to force them to wear their home blue jerseys too.

    Sadly, Belichick did not agree, which is quite predictable since he would never get into that kind of nonsense.

    In the end, no I don't think the jersey color had much to do with the loss, but I do think the NYG's were more comfortable playing in their road whites, so why allow them to remain comfortable.

    In this yr's case, I don't believe it matters in the least.

    Personally, I like their white road jerseys when not @ Gillette, but I don't have that as part of my superstitions, BUT BB wearing that red hoodie, now that's a different animal! :eek:

    Just speculating but Belichick may be of the mind set that wearing the whites shows a psychological weakness given the outcome of the last game. Wearing the blues shows that it has no meaning.

    Or maybe he just doesnt care which ones we wear and we wear blue since we are the home team and its the default.

    We do know that Belichick isn't above psychological stuff with the uniforms as the Dallas game showed.

    As long as they don't wear the the throwbacks. I do like the throwbacks, but I still think they are cursed.

    BB needs to dig up the oldest most tatterred grey hoodie he can find in his collection.

    I was hoping the Pats would wear the whites just to give the game a different look than the 07/08 game.

    Looks like BB was in a no win situation here.

    If he opted for the Away uniforms people would say he was still haunted by 2008. By choosing the Home uniforms he has people all over him for re-creating some conditions from the "scene of the crime."

    IMO, he did the right thing by choosing the path of least resistance; they're the Home team so they wear the Home uniforms.

    I thought it was an obvious joke on my part. I guess not.
