    I say the game against Denver.This game is going to be a grudge/bloodbath match.The fans are going to go crazy in the Razor.The pats should be ready to kick some Bronco Ass on that day.I'm praying for a shutout.Payback is a B**** Denver.What game are you all looking forward to the most next season?

    I'd say the Super Bowl :D Short of that, it's tough to decide between Indy and Denver. I dunno, I still say Indy.

    I'd say it would have to be Denver. Throwing some other games out there......Cincy should be interesting to see if that team has really arrived, and the Miami games because they seem to be a media favorite to challenge the Pats in the division.

    1) Broncos
    2) Colts
    3) Dolphins

    In a masochistic kind of way, I keep on watching the tape from that January night. Bailey running down the sidelines. The flag flying out at Asante. Belichick frustrated after Troy's fumble. Brady hanging his head on the sidelines. BusterTBronco, and the other Bronco trolls. Mile High.

    I want a beat down. Shut them up. Close the door. Lock it. Throw away the key. Never think about the way 2005 ended again.

    #1: 1st Buffalo game.....how can you not love the opener?!?! You see who gets the nod at contested spots (#2 WR, #2 CB, 4th LB, RT), who is going to hit the ground running and have a break-out year (I'm guessing Colvin), and a million other things you've been waiting for all summer.

    #2: Chicago.....I find the games against teams we rarely play to be the most exciting. Adding that element of the unknown gives the game a bit of an edge.

    #3: Denver.....obvious reasons. However I'm not sure how much it will mean relatively early in the season as it is. I mean, even Indy plays well early in the year, it's what you can do at the end that counts.

    Denver more so than the rest. However, I also look forward to the game down in Jax on Christmas Eve. They will be out for revenge after the beat down in the playoffs. This also falls into the "we don't see them much" category.

    At Green Bay will be fun, if for no other reason than it should be a blow out in favor of the Pats and a game at Lambeau is an experience. When was the last time they were at GB?

    I agree with this order. Though I think the Denver game will be a great chance to make a statement by pounding them early in the season. Indy is always a big game and even moreso with Adam. I'd like to see him get a nice round of applause then not leave the bench except to make a short kickoff at the start of the game. I really think this Miami being a media darling this off season is gonna cool off quick. Saban may be a Belichick "disciple" but he's made some questionable moves this offseason - Culpepper over Brees, signing Marcus "relation in name only" Vick. In all likelyhood they're looking Joey Harrington at QB for half the season and no Ricky Williams (who took a lot of the load off Ronnie late last year). Their D will be solid but when has that ever not been the case? They'll win 9 games but it's gonna take 13 to win the division.

    That cycle didn't begin until 2002 when they went to eight divisions. Before that it rotated every three years but you only played four of the five teams. I cannot comment on how the rotation worked of who was skipped and who was played.

    They seemed to have played the NFC North/Central in 94, 97, 2000, 2002. (I wasn't much of a football fan before about 92 or so.) I recall the 02 game at the Razor vs GB, the Super Bowl (obviously), and 94 at home around halloween they won on a fg (ot?) in throwback unis. They also in 97 they hosted GB in a super bowl "rematch" on MNF and lost. In 2000 they played at Chicago, at Detroit on thanksgiving, and home vs Minnesotta and TB; so no GB then.


    Edit: According to the media guide, the pats last played in GB in 1988 and lost 45-3. Their only other GB appearance was in 1979 and they lost 27-14.

    1A. DENVER - I think about this game and that playoff game every single day. I am going to be a nutcase in the stands that night. Denver is going to feel what it's like to play on the road in this series. Plummer will fear THE RAZOR! Remember to chant "IN-COM-PLETE" every time Denver misses a pass play (in case you're wondering, that's what they chant at Invesco).

    1B. PITTSBURGH* - anybody else here think the Steeler's SB title has gone to their collective heads? Ward, Porter, who do they think they are? If we could get them at Gillette in the playoffs that would be one HELL of a battle and we would dethrone the champs on the way to our 4th SB title. I'm still bitter they didn't play us but that was our choosing.

    2. INDIANAPOLIS - I say every time we score we go for 2. Seriously, why go for 2 when you're up 19? Manning, what a prick.

    3. at Miami - we could lock up the East w/ this game, plus I'll be going so extra anticipation there.

    4. at Cincinnati - good test for our secondary, should give us an idea of what's to come against Indy

    5. at Green Bay- I just want us to kick Brett Favre's ass one time, really, really bad.

    6. at Tennessee - could be a junk game, but David Givens probably will realize that he made the wrong choice when Chad Jackson is burning the Titans' secondary and we're heading to the playoffs AGAIN.

    7. at NY Jets - am I the only one who is bitter at Mangini for our non-existent D for half of '05?

    Colts and Denver, for obvious reasons. I'll be in Europe for the Colts game, but I've already checked- my hotel has ESPN, so I'm all set!

    The games at Jax and TN, because I'll be at those. . .

    I don't understand how anyone can consider a regular season win in the year following a playoff loss payback. I don't understand it when the colts trolls come in here and say it and I won't understand it from Pats fans. Beating Denver will be nice but so won't beating the other 12 teams on the schedule. Revenge would be beating that same team in the playoffs again the following year, not week 3.

    With that said, the Jaguars game because I bought season tickets to the Jags to ensure that I had 5 tickets to see the Pats play them. I take the family on a road trip every year and the past two years were in Cleveland and Buffalo needless to say I wanted to go some place warmer this year. So we will spend Christmas in Florida.

    Everytime they get lucky enough to beat us they act like they get one of our Superbowl trophies.

    In-season rematches are more appropriate for "revenge" or "payback". You're exactly right, how will we have avenged that loss by winning in Week 3?

    The more appropriate word is "redemption". We have to redeem ourselves for what happened in the playoffs, against the team that was there to witness our meltdown. More importantly, we have to redeem ourselves for our ugly history against the Broncos.

    You should hear Denver fans...

    Bragging about being 4-1 against Brady and emphasizing the one loss was with Danny Kanell. Bragging about ending the Pats' dynasty and being better than the Pats every time we won the Super Bowl.

    I know a guy that goes so far to say the Broncos would have come into Foxboro in 03/04 and whipped the Pats based purely on last year's playoff game IN DENVER.

    In summation, they think they "own" us - they really don't "own" a clue.

    Stop being so articulate! :D

    Yes, redemption is a better word. But either way last year is last year and we have to move on. It would only serve to make a victory over the Broncos in the Playoffs a bit more satisfying.

    You're right, but it's just semantics. The fact is the loss in the playoffs to them last year makes this year's regular season game against them more meaningful. Redemption, revenge, retaliation.. wha'eva- let's just make them pay.
