I know it hurts now, and it hurts bad. For me, this is worse than 07, because this year it was personnel. This year was for Mr Kraft and especially Mrs Kraft, and we came up just short. But after giving it a few hours to vent and gain some perspective, I am really proud of this team, and I am proud to call myself a Patriots fan. Earlier in the year I questioned this teams character and heart. Well, they sure proved me wrong. They are tougher and a lot more resilient than I thought, and the way they battled through the season was fantastic. Obviously they didn't perform in the big game, but that doesn't take away from the great season they had. There were far too many individual performers this year to name, but this was a really special year for so many. Young and old, some cemented their legacies while others built theirs. This team has a lot of positives going foreward, and I it sucks that we have to wait until next season to see them again. BB once again proved he is one of the greatest coaches in the NFL with what he was able to do with the amount of talent on this team. There is no doubt that they have been lacking in some areas all season, but BB was able to get the most out of the guys he had and do enough to be one of the two best teams in the game. I also wanted to say good luck to Bill O'Brien at Penn State. I think he has been very underrated this year and really added a lot to this team. So thank you to all the players and the staff of the Patriots who made this such an enjoyable season. And thank you to all of you guys (and girls) here at PatsFans, because you too are a big part of my enjoyment of football season. But most of all I wanted to say thank you to Mr Robert Kraft and his family who are without a doubt the heart and soul of this team. What this man was able to do while his wife was fighting for her life is truely inspirational. Without him, who knows what would have happened to football this season. He is truely a great owner, professional, but above all a great man. We all know Myra is gone, but I'm sure she is looking down and is as proud as I am of this team. She will always be a part of this franchise and we will always remember her. MHK.
