    The vikings loss reminds us of an old adeage, on any given Sunday any NFL team can win. I know it's cliche, and I know it gets old hearing it over and over. But seriously, everyone thought minnesota would easily win that game. My point? Don't give up hope! Is this the best Pats team this decade? Not even close, but neither was the team in 2006, and look how close they were to winning it all. As another wise man once said, screamed really, "Anything is possible!"

    well there are only a couple weeks left so teams better start peaking if they haven't.

    the pats have alot to work on with execution... this week was one step closer.

    they must stay committed to the run. the long ball is nice but timing is everything. for instance the long bomb at the end of the game to aiken was not needed on 2nd down. they need to be smarter and take what the defense gives you there, run time off the clock.

    We need to work on putting the nail in the coffin in the fourth quarter!

    it is more fun now at lest. two weeks ago the colts and saints looked like a lock to be in the SB

    now if a had to pick a team from the NFC and AFC that are playing the best right now i would say. san diego, and the eagels

    the key to the nail in the coffin is being smart. use all three down to get a first rather than trying to get a first down on one down.

    clock management is key and taking what the defense gives you

    Agree one hundred percent, We haven't peaked just yet, Maroney is coming around, TB needs to be sharper though.

    If 2001 hasn't taught people about any given Sunday, then nothing will. There's a reason they play the games :D

    I would like to dream that this team can make a run come the playoffs but its all about defense and timely offense.I still have major concerns about this defense.
