Just got back from the trip "down under" and can't sleep, hence a few observations from today's debacle: * The new stadium is really nice -- very similar to the old Giants Stadium only bigger, with much wider concourses. Very tight to the field and a fully enclosed bowl; holds sound well. Got loud in the second half when 'Beans fans began to realize they might win one. Egress after the game was horrible. It takes forever to exit the stadium as all three levels empty simultaneously onto the same ramp system. They really need to do something about this. * You all saw the game so I won't offer any redundancies other than to say that the Green Beans' second-half intensity had the Patriots on their heels. You've got to give 'em credit, they stuck it to us. * I watched BB a lot through binoculars and I think he took this loss pretty hard. It's no secret he hates losing to that bunch. There was a point late in the game where he was bent over hands on knees just staring at the ground for a long time. I didn't hear his press conference but can only imagine. * I have a few choice words for Jets "fans": you are a true disgrace as a fan base. You have a great new facility and a strong team, but you sure as hell don't know how to handle a win or treat visiting fans with civility. We were pelted from behind periodically in our seats by peanuts and pieces of food thrown by anonymous cowards somewhere a few rows back. The loud chants of "Brady sucks" and "Pats suck" wouldn't befit a group of 10-year-olds. The spastic childish taunts I can ignore; having crap thrown at me for no reason with my back turned is unforgivable. * Edwards' 15-yarder for taunting, the shot to Welker's head and LaClassian's over-the-top display behavior after "scoring" first downs are just a few more examples of why this team needs shutting up in a big way. Here's hoping it happens in Foxboro.
