    ...is it? We'll see. Some players will be lost. Key players will be back. Playmakers should return.

    Talk is cheap, it really is. This team can say it is tough til the cows come home but are they really?

    We have hit another low spot in our teams history which has been filled with both highs and lows in the last decade.

    After the next couple weeks are over, talk will fade, the combine will start, free agency and the draft.

    Let's see just how "tough" we are. Being on the canvas is on thing, staying there is another.

    Just how tough are we? The next six months or so we will start to find out, and on into the 2012 season.

    The season is draining, let the boys party Patriot nation. They deserve it, they work hard and they deserve to blow off some steam.

    However , when the SB 46 buzz starts to fade and the new team starts forming, let's see just how tough they really become.

    And when or if they get another opportunity, let's see if that mental toughness comes out.

    People can talk about the dynasty being over, their dominance fading, but here they were yet again this year in the mix. That is a fact.

    The bandwagon always gets lighter after the end of the season. We have a very very competitive team. Let's hope they gain a bit of toughness from being so low, and start clawing their way back up.

    I for one think we have a very bright future....no homer glasses, just looking at the facts.

    Boston, New Englanders and their fans are tough SOB's. Let's not just say it, let's be it.

    You have to wonder if this game broke or will break this team. This team has lost a Championship twice in a four year span with less than a minute left in the game. They were "this close" to FIVE titles. What's the other sport equivalent to blowing fourth quarter leads inside two minutes in the Super Bowl? I guess the Bruins blowing a 3-0 lead to Philadelphia is similar....but, that wasn't for a title. A likely similar situation might be blowing a 3-2 series lead with games 6 and 7 at home - has any team ever done such a thing twice in the span of four years?
    Has any other team in the history of sport been so close to winning a title twice in four years only to let it slip away in the final minutes? It's going to be very hard to get back to the super bowl next season, especially when you consider the "super bowl loser" jinx, even though Pittsburgh made the playoffs this year after losing the title last season...
