    I thought they could get there and they now have. I think this was a huge game and the team will be playing with a ton more confidence. The D continues to make plays and Brady is playing out of his head.

    If they lock up HFA, #4 could officially be on the way.

    The defense is playing better and better every game. If they bring this same A-Game every week with Brady playing like he is right now, I don't see a team out there that can stop us.

    Not to rain on your parade, but there is still the question of them playing a full 60 minutes. Until that happens consistently, I am hesitant to anoint them with anything else than "promising."

    Chicago will tell us some more

    Short week, on the road, after a big emotional win, against a very good team that's just getting its stride.

    They played a full 60 minutes tonight and saw what they could be when they did. There's no question that there's a ton to build on now, but they do have confidence in themselves. You can see it on the field.

    And yes, here's to hoping that they don't get complacent.

    It is near impossible for them to play a better game from start to finish than they did last night. They answered that question, at least for now.

    I am not ready to say this is a team of destiny yet, but it was a mighty good step in that direction.

    Brady has the look, you know he wants another ring and he can smell it. Hes playing like a man possessed.

    Yes they had a great start, but please note that I said "consistently."

    Bill better tear into the kids tomarrow because Chicago is no joke. Jay Cutler hasn't thrown a pick in 2 games, thats like a personal record.

    I think the whole team learned from the Browns game, and I think BB tried to reinforce that message when he huddled the whole team around while being up 28 points.

    Re: Chicago will tell us some more

    Chicago is another great test. They really only have one quality win (Philly) so I'm sure they are looking at this game as a serious litmus test for their team. One thing is for sure: take the over!

    I'm loathe to use the analogy, but it's similar to the drive Kobe had going into last season. All those rings, but still that monomaniacal will to win another one.

    Man. Brady has been compared to Jeter and Kobe tonight. It would have been a perfect day without that.

    No doubt they looked SB worthy tonight. But it is all pointless if they let Fitzpatrick look all world and put up 30+ again in a shootout. Or let Cutler look like he knows what he is doing.

    I would just like some consistency from this defense is all. I know they are going to be a force to be wreckoned with down the road. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Can't wait to have a pass rush.

    Wow, he's on quite a tear then. Sounds like he's due for a 4 interception game :D

    I want them to beat the hell of Chicago for Julius Pepers not coming here.

    This team is starting to remind me a little bit of the 2003 pre-Dillon SB club in that they are dogged in their determination to win. It's a mix of swagger, but also laser like focus on details. This team is more talented IMO which is bad news for the rest of the league.

    Your sore that he took a better deal than we offered? I wanna beat the Bears because they are next of the list... No more, no less...

    Home field advantage throughout the playoffs is all I care about now.....Not Julius Peppers going to "da bears"...............:cool:
