I am very proud of the Patriots. I know there will be a bunch of negativity posted on this board. Palycalling, coaching, knocking players, etc, etc. But to win 3 SBs in 4 years, 5 divisions in 6 years, and get to a 4th AFCC is a tremenduos accomplishment. I am grateful for everything this team has given me as a fan over the last 6 years, and think it is moronic to tarnish it with negativity over ONLY getting 3 and half minutes away from yet another SB. This team plays like a Champion. Tonight the team on the other side also played like a Champion and we came up short. I don't think you could be a fan of any team, in any era and have gotten more pride out of being one than this team over the last 6 years. Tonight the better team won. They werent better by much, and we will be back to challenge them next year. I have absolutely no doubt there are more Championships in this run. 3 times we were the best team in the NFL. This time we happened to be the 2nd best. You can't win everyone and when you have absolutely nothing to do with the success that you take pride in as a fan I can think of nothing that is more distasteful that ripping the team, organization, players, coaches, or anything else to do with the team that came up one play short of going to get #4. I hope that doesnt happen on this board. Congratulations Colts. And I must say if we had to lose to the Colts, it feels a little better after they finally realized that running the football and playing the run rather than ignoring it to rush the QB is what wins. On to next year, and the priority must be to get homefield advantage in the playoffs on the way to ring #4.
