they did not step up one iota. The defense up front cost them this game.
They're pretty worn out man, you can't just toss the blame on them. Plus, they're not getting any younger.

The are showing their age. There is no shame in that. We need to get young and fast in the LB core. We lost thats it give credit to the Colts they played to the end.
If we had some sustained drives on offense than maybe our D would have had a chance to keep pace. Trying to lay blame on two of our all time greats is just ignorant.
They played horrible but so did the entire defensive line. However the defensive line is a young group. Bruschi and Vrabel are not. Bruschi, in particular, needs to be replaced ASAP.
This was a game where they needed to step it up a little PLEASE they could not Teddy, retire for yourself and for us.
What 3 SB's in 5 years just not enough? As just a fan of football, I'm happy for you Pats fans, as a rival fan I feel nothing but joy you lost. It's amazing to see the attitudes here, some fans are respectable, but many here think winning is just their right. You need to take a step back and look how much fun football has been for the Pats fans the last few years, because it's only been fun for you, it won't last forever. When it's finally over, you're going to be crushed by division rival fans.
What are you saying, they weren't trying?
You're an idiot.
Mon Amie I don't settle for less than victory, Those guys could not help bring it. every other unit helped, on both sides of the ball. It's time to replace these aging longtime friends.
The Dolfan has a point. Winning Super Bowls has been taken for granted by all of us. We had a dynasty and, like all dynasties, it's starting to slip off. It's been a great couple of years and we're very capable of rebuilding during the offseason and going at it again next year.
If I heard 1 Pats player make an excuse like that I'd ***** slap him into next month. I don't give a sh*t about next year!
Don't blame Teddy and Mike....We win and lose as a team....I agree we need to draft a young stud at LB....Like some one to teach the young stud.....
I'm upset just like everyone else here... but, the season is done now.
Sad but true.
That's all I'm sayin, when the Pats lose they lose in the AFC title game, for goodness sakes, it must be horrible to have a chance every year as a fan. Enjoy how good your team is, don't throttle them for losing a well played game and season. How quickly some fans forget being the worst team in the division.
the harsh reality of the offseason is beginning to set in...
whether the loss can be attributed to Vrabel, Bruschi, or the offense not coming up big, I am very thankful that I am not blaming poor officiating
Last year's loss was TOO much to take, at least this year it was decided on the field, even if it was in a painful fashion
Good God I hope you choke on your own vomit in your sleep... did you not see Bruschi slap down a HUGE pass???
BS it's slipping off... eff off... none of us want you here, we have NOT taken this team for granted, how many threads have been posted about how special this team is???
just go to hell, we were all attached to this group, to tell us we took it for granted... just f*** off and die already
Go F yourself. Please don't ever post here again.
You tell me what they did to help to win the game when they blew a 21-3 lead? The defensire front 7 is 100% to blame PERIOD. f*cking invalid!!
Bruschi had a HUGE slap-down like, 30 yards downfield, for one thing
Also, they basically stopped the Colts from rushing most of hte game...
we were beaten by a better team, plain and simple. Calling them turds is weak. they've won us 3 Super Bowls and you will call them turds??? just go juggle knives in traffic and spare us all
You need to learn more of what you speak before saying things like that. They played their best, but were dog tired. Two coast to coast flights, the flu, a very short week, then another flight to hostile territory. Half the team, including Brady, looked like they were on heavy cold medication. Give 'em a break. They gave it their all. They were spent.
If they didn't have the flu, and be asked to play out in steamroom 20 minutes in a row, they might have played better. In the end Brady had the ball with over a minute to go.
I don't much care who had the flu, how hot the RCA dome was, and who was tired. They've both come up big all year, and for whatever reason, played like okay starters but not stars.
Every player at every position gets evaluated in camp, and get used to it, that's the next stop on their journey as Pats (if you're lucky enough to see both come back next year). "What a couple of turds..." might not have been the best way to open this thread.
Nice way to introduce yourself. Good to hear from you, now the season is over.
