Its funny reading all of this and then thinking back 4-6 weeks ago, when half of this board had the Patriots dead and buried. Comments such as "If this team makes the playoffs it has NO CHANCE to win a playoff game" were the consensus around here. The idea that the team, under BBs guidance would improve by playoff time, was met with something like, thats a dreamworld, the players will be the same, so they won't improve. About that time were the posts, with wide agreement that Brooks Bollinger was a lock to throw for over 300 yards against us. (I think he got about 110) Where Brady is saying the team was given up on he is correct, because it happened HERE. What Brady is really saying is that at 4-4, or 6-5, nobody believed the team could play as well as it has since then. And he is saying now that, basically, underate the Pats all you want, because you will be wrong. Or, out a different way, "No one thought we could do what we have done 6 weeks ago, and we are just getting started"
