    Snow in Foxboro is beautiful.

    Snow is to the Patriots what spinach is to Popeye- the cure all.

    We are 10-0 when it comes to playing in the snow.

    It also has given us great miracles.

    Who can forget the snowplow game? The tuck rule game? The Bruschi interception that set off that snowball orchestra?

    Tonight it gave Brady his long game back.. his mechanism was impeccable; he even came off his backfoot completely, a number of times.

    It gave Lomo the cojones to put together a great game (16 carries, 123 yards).

    It gave Pees the ability to call a defensive game that had little vanilla to it.

    It gave us an intersellar D performances with 5 turnovers, 2 FF and 3 INT.

    It gave Butler and Chung their first interceptions.

    It gave Vollmer a great, solid game in which he executed great blocking (a key block up the middle that gave LoMo his first TD).

    It gave Green-Ellis a chance to put in a great game, 7 carries for 67 yards and a key pass completion, and a role in that great flea-flicker.

    It gave Hoyer a chance to show us he is for real: 9 for 11, 52 yards and 1 TD, and quite a few sharp passes. His pressure and blitz pickup was sharp and he shows he has a far better grasp of the playbook than we realize.

    And it gave us, a good game..

    How I could wax poetic about snow, snow, and snow!

    I can't believe the Titans only completed two passes all game. That ineffectiveness is just crazy.

    Great game all around by the Pats today though.

    Gotta love stats like that.

    Personally, I loved the stat that Brady never lost a game when he was winning going into the second half, but that was shattered this year.

    Great stat....and look at what the D did in those games...four shutouts, and two other games where they didn't give up a TD, and two other games where they held the other team to under fourteen points.

    I was at the game yesterday, and when the rain changed to snow prior to the kickoff, you could just feel the mood of the crowd change. I think everyone was even happy it was snowing...I know I was. I told my son at halftime, remember this game since they will be talking about it for as long as you live.

    Bruchi said of the Miami snow game "It was magical." Love a good snowfall.
