After reading some of the posts here time for something positive. I think we should just relax and thank the Patriots for their effort and giving us an entertaining year. When this year started, expectations were really low for the Patriots. Consider that we lost starters Nick Kaczur, Ty Warren, Leigh Bodden, and Brandon MacGowan at the start of the season. During the season we lose Kevin Faulk, Stephen Gostkowski, Stephen Neal, Mike Wright and Jonathan Wilhite. We didn't have Mankins to start the season. Starters Randy Moss and Laurence Maroney get traded during the season. We have a roster loaded with first and second year players and a bunch of undrafted free agents, all who were expected to contribute. We end up going 14-3 with a very tough schedule. We went 6-2 against playoff teams. This is a big accomplishment for a team that supposedly was rebuilding. I think the future looks bright for the Patriots. With all the experience the young guys got, and with all the draft picks, the Patriots could be setting themselves up really good for the future. Brady has shown that he has a lot left in the tank and Belichick is still the best coach in the NFL. Instead of whining and moaning about the last couple of playoff losses, it makes me appreciate the Super Bowls we did win even more. So many things have to go right just to get there and to do it 3 times in a 4 year span is amazing. Call me a homer if you want. It is a moniker I will wear proudly. All chicken littles can get off the bandwagon if they want to. Right now I am looking forward to the draft.
