    Would be a rematch with the Giants and winning. I know we run the risk of losing to them again but the hurt, pain and anguish of 2007 can only be erased by one thing - beating the NY Giants in the SuperBowl.

    I would rather play the Niners but man, oh man, can you imagine if we take revenge for the 2007 loss. We gotta face the demons once again and defeat them. Then we will be cleansed of the 2007 tragedy and Tyree's catch will be finally put to bed....

    We don't match up well with the Giants, but we've had them beat the last two times and just gave them the ball with too much time remaining. I want to concentrate on this game first as we have a very formidable opponent coming up. However, I will say that if we win the AFCCG on Sunday, I will root for the Giants to be in it. I have a lot of friends who are Giants fans that I watched that wretched game with. It would be nice to watch that game again with a different result.

    Nothing will ever erase the hurt of 42 for me. Winning another Superbowl will help ease the pain.

    With Kontra though, would prefer to do a number on the Ravens before projecting ultimate success.

    I'd have to be put in an asylum if we lost to the Giants again.

    They wouldn't have a chance to put me in the asylum because I will have already died of alcohol poisoning.

    Ok I'm getting WAY ahead of myself here but imagine a hypothetical world where we win the SB this year, then re-sign Welker.


    In 2012, we would have Tom in his prime. All or nearly all of his 2011 OL would be back and healthy. Gronk, Hernandez, Welker, Branch, all still around. Another year of experience for Edelman. A year of experience for Ridley, and an NFL offseason program.

    If the 2012 defense can even do a passable impersonation of a speed bump, there is no reason that the 2012 Pats wouldn't be a favorite again.

    It's a shame Rodgers choked in the playoffs. I kinda wanted Brady to kick his ass.

    I don't think that we'll ever forget the perfect season that was so close and yet so far. Winning the Super Bowl would easy the pain, but the scar will always be there.

    I'll take a Super Bowl win, I don't care who they beat. Beating the '11 Giants doesn't make up for that loss, nothing really does. You can't change history. Winning the SB against ANYBODY would make me feel better.

    The scar would be a lot lighter in color, my friend.

    No longer would I have to turn away from the TV when David Tyree is mentioned.

    We would have new, more current and (hopefully) fonder memories.

    Now if they'd lose to the NYG again??

    I agree...I would honestly need a straight jacket.

    Let's just beat the Ravens first, and maybe SF will end up winning anyway.

    I'm surprised at how many are already counting SF out of this game. They are at home, and they'll be pumped up too. It's not out of the realm of possibility for SF to win.

    I wish more fans here could somehow find a way to wrap their minds around just how hard it is to even get there. Or to even get to where you can get to there from. And appreciate it.

    The last 4 years the Giants have been flailing at times. NO despite the Brees hype can't get past one and done. The Packers peaked to soon and faced no adversity and rested into rust once again underscoring how hard it is to even get a shot at repeating. The Steelers are entering their flailing period. Indy got back in 3 and has now disintegrated. Baltimore hasn't had a whiff in a decade. For the JETS it's been 4...decades.

    Yet here all we hear is ease my pain... From a fanbase that's become too impatient and entitled to appreciate the journey. Twelve years of consistent contention and counting. Knock us down and we get back up and compete again. In a 32 team league top 12 ten out of twelve, top 8 half of the time, top 4 six of the twelve, top 2 four out of twelve and counting. Yet the focus here is persistently is on the agony of defeat. Instead of the wonder of the Patriots ever becoming a franchise for the ages led by an owner to die for and two potential GOATs at the QB and HC position.

    Ian should scour the internet for a violinist smilie...

    I understand what you are saying but for me nothing will erase 2007. It happened. It hurt and the likelihood the opportunity the 07 squad had will never, ever come around again is extremely low. Winning a Super Bowl will help and the "revenge" factor is nice to think about but it really doesn't fix anything. Can't turn back the clock I'm afraid.:(

    It's like the 1986/2004 Red Sox. 04 was great but how I felt when Jesse Orosco struck out Marty Barrett for the final out was sheer emptiness.

    Go Patriots, Go Niners.

    I do not want to see, for 2 weeks of Super Bowl hype, constant replays of the lowlights of that game, the helmet catch, Asante's drop, interviews with Tyree showing what he is up to now (probably flipping burgers somewhere), more references to spygate, talk about the Mannings, etc.

    DO
    NOT
    WANT

    Let the mediots focus on the return of the 49ers, the fact that Brady grew up a Niners fan, that Brady is trying to eclipse Montana's number of wins.

    No helmet catches, no references to spygate, no mention of any Manning at all

    Exquisite. :cool:

    As a person I have absolutely no regard for you, Bledsoe's Near Death Celebrator ~ And don't bother trying to defend that, because it's indefensible.

    But you are an awfully good FootBall writer...and this one was prose.

    *In case anyone's wondering: Mo's the kind of guy who "1 Stars" another guy's thread, out of spite.

    Seriously!! :singing:

    And he's also the kind of guy who celebrates Bledsoe's near death with every single post.

    He chose that name.

    Nice. :rolleyes:

    But I refuse to lower myself to that level: I always give the Devil his due. :cool:

    And this post was one of many greats. :cool:

    Feel free to declare that you couldn't care less what I think, Mo, old kid, even though we both know you seek out and viciously attack my Threads. I, as always, won't be bothered reading your response on this Thread, either...But I'll look forward to you next post, elsewhere!! :D

    I love Mo's post too, but one thing: why do I keep seeing that NO was one and done? They did win last week.last year they were definitely one and done.

    It would be cool if Brady played against his former favorite team in the Superbowl.

    I disagree you will be able to tell your grandchildren the giants took out our perfect season with less than 2 minutes to go.. but we got revenge on them a few seasons later back in 2011!

    A bit of poetic Justice. The stars are all aligning for the Patriots. Unfortunately I don't believe in fate so they have to earn it and you have to say they are the favorites now.

    I don't want the Giants one bit, but think that's what we will end up with IF we win at the weekend. The Giants have a QB who has come on leaps and bounds this year...we kept him relatively quiet in the game we lost back in the regular season but I don't think it's much of a brainer when you have a choice between having to face Smith or Eli!

    Although you could argue the niners secondary that goes with their pass rush is pretty hot right now....at least with the Giants you risk being caught in a shootout if the rush can't get there...OI may change my mind before the week is done!

    EDIT: That didn't take long, I changed my mind. Bring on the G-Men :D

    I'd rather have SF. Giants are a better offensive team , IMO.

    First off... Nothing will ERASE that loss....... It would hopefully wall it off into the dark recesses of my brain, but it won't ever completely go away.

    That said..... I'm kinda in a quandary right now. Certainly not overlooking the Ravens and we have our work cut out for us, but if we were fortunate enough to make it beyond them and into the big show.... I'm not sure who I'd rather see.

    The football fan in me says that the 49ers are probably a better team then the Giants. Their defense is better and they are every bit a potent offensively as the Giants are. So logic tells me that we should probably rather face the Giants then the 49ers.

    With that says, we just never seem to match up well against the Giants and I would dread facing them again. So, the opportunity to "revenge" and old loss comes with the possibility of doubling the pain of it if we lost all over again.

    Not a pretty picture.
