1.) First, off congratulations Patriots for getting to the Super Bowl. Tremendous accomplishment with all the shuffling on the defense and players to IR. This season is a resounding success no matter what happens two weeks from now. 2.) The Pats were lucky to win, but they put themselves in a position to be lucky. I felt the Pats made some really stupid decisions like taking a knee with 56 seconds and two TDs at the end of the first half. That long bomb to the endzone to Slater after turning over Flacco was just idiotic. 3.) Brady was right. He did suck, but the defense and the rest of the offense did enough to win. 4.) Gronkowski is the toughest son of a ***** I have ever seen. I thought he broke his ankle and he just missed a series, 5.) The defense did break a bit, but they did step up in two critical red zone situations. 6.) I think a lot of people have a mea culpa to do after trashing Belichick all season for letting "the game pass him by", being a horrible GM, wasting another year of Brady, etc. He got this team to yet another Super Bowl when so many people had them one and done. 7.) Kudos to the Ravens. They played one hell of a gutty game and could have and probably should have won.
