You can't really isolate the reasons games were lost without recognizing they were also reasons games were won. When you are 14-3 its kind of hard to say scrap what caused the losses, because what you put in its place or what you subtract next to it, may create losses out of some of those wins. This mad scientist approach of trying to find a single reason that would win a SB is nuts. We need to build the best team we can, and they need to play a good game when its on the line. Since winning the SB the last time, we have had a team fully capable of winning another in 2006, 2007, 2008(if Brady wasnt injured) 2010. We didn't not win because of some inherent flaw in the team, we didn't win because we did not play well and the opponent did in 3 critical games (and Bradys injury was the 4th case). That is why teams win SBs, not talent collections. Are we really going to say the team that beat the Jets 45-3 a few weeks earlier, was unequiped to beat them in the playoffs? If they played well, they win. You can't rip up the blueprint because you lost when you didn't execute and the other team did.
