Let's get to the losses. Indy, Carolina and SD pounded us. Denver and KC were pounding us until late game heroics made the scores respectable. We were never really in those latter 2 games. I don't even consider the Miami game a loss. It's obvious winning the game wasn't our goal. Brady stole 3 games for us. Pittsburgh,Atlanta and atMiami. He was the reason we won those games. Not all of these guys we're lamenting the loss of. Significant changes have to be made. Our defense played well at the end of the season. But, you have to admit it wasn't against stellar offenses. Our biggest problem was getting off of the field on 3rd down. Which I attribute to diminishing team speed. I love Willie,Troy,Adam, Ty Law,Milloy,Hamilton,Washington and Andruzzi too. But, again. This is football. Getting younger is key. Plus, there's this little thing called the salary cap. You can bet the mortgage Mr. Kraft will field a team that has a salary of 100m(I think we lose 2m because of stuff Miguel knows which I have a hard time comprehending sometimes.) Can we just wait to see what changes are made by the end of April before we start questioning Kraft's willingness to pay players, Belichicks skill at developing a winning roster and Pioli's skill at evaluating players? The Super Bowl isn't a given. It's damn hard to win. You have to be very good(03 and 04) and a little lucky(01). Took us my whole lifetime to win one. I was born in 61. I'm in for the long haul and am not going to question the integrity of this organization. It's fun to 2nd guess trades,free agents and draft choices. I do it too. But, I don't like where this is all going about us being cheap,stupid,non-caring etc.
