    The Patriots gave me the most interesting and exciting football season of my life. They won as a team and lost as a team. Have noticed some of the negative thread titles, of course I won't waste time to read them because they have been posted by trolls, fair weather fans or band wagon types who of course are not true Patriot Fans. We lost the super bowl in fitting fashion, going right down to the wire and of course by 3 points. Thanks again to PF.COM for great a great site to follow the Patriots. Go Pats.....

    I hear ya. I can't even bring myself to watch or get excited about the Celts. I'm too afraid of the heart break again.

    Same here. Maybe I'm crazy to let a football game affect me like this, but I really can't help it. I don't know that I'll watch any sports anytime soon.

    I agree, the loss sucks. But as I tell my kids,winning is not everything and you should learn to deal with losing. I need to lead by example. THis year what makes it easier off course is that my youngest was just diagnosed with diabetes type 1 a little over a month ago. So our new hectic life was ready to continue the next day... I am more depressed that the season is now over, and I won;t get to buy the dvd special on 19-0 to play every sunday :p


    Go pats 08-09!!!!

    I sucks that much of America thinks an AFC championship means absolutely nothing. All just because half the people who watch the Super Bowl don't watch any other games. The reality is that 30 teams wanted to get there and failed earlier. And it was not a blowout...

    There were about 6 plays that, if any of them go the other way, the Patriots win-- the Samuel non-INT, the 4th-and-1, the amazing catch after an almost sack, the Toomer catch on 3rd and 10 that set up the 4th and 1, the fumble that got wrestled away, and I'm sure I'm missing many more since it will be a long time before I can watch the video, if ever.

    The Giants D outplayed our O-line and out game-planned us.

    But it was still a coin-flip game at the end, and our side of the coin did not come up.

    I am proud of this team and the way they competed all year. We will be doubly proud next year when they come back, play well despite the F-in media continuously asking about how they can posssibily deal with such a "devastating and humiliating defeat" not to mention spygate. There is a Super Bowl winners hangover effect and also a Super Bowl loser's hangover effect. We beat the first one in 2004 and will beat the second one in 2008.

    It was the Giant's day. We've had days like that, and we will again, and soon.

    Through it all, I am proud of our players and our organization.

    No Jersey Selected

    I am still physically/emotionally hurt from the loss. It doesn't feel real to me, like a movie whose ending changed. Definitely a memorable season but one that will be hard for me to remember fondly because of how it ended.

    All that happened in the regular season and playoffs was rendered inconsequential after the Super Bowl loss. This was the biggest choke job EVER. Wasn't that what they were playing for to be a part of EVER. All this perfect team, best team EVER bull**** made them forget the real reason for the season. Win the last friggin game.

    I think we could handle this better if we lost to a better team, that we were not outcoached, and we have not lost a game all yr before .. Sorry again in six months the sting will wear off, but for the next month its going to hurt..

    Fabulous, fabulous season !

    It's been 36 hours since pigs learned to fly
    and now it seems the numbness is wearing off.

    One fan i met who took it even harder than i did is
    a young woman who grew up neighbors with Logan Mankins
    in Mariposa, California.

    We still have our health ... our jobs ... our true friends ... our loved ones and family ...
    and only six months or so until training camp !

    It was not a great season.

    Since when is this team about numbers? Since when is this team about regular season stats? Last I checked, this team was all about winning Super Bowls. And we didnt win the Super Bowl. So if this is now a team that considers it a great season to set regular season records and then tank in the Super Bowl, then I say we have lost our identity.

    My New England Patriots are the hardnosed, blue-collar bunch that grinded it out against the odds, hit hard, played hard, and never got caught up in hype when they won three Super Bowls in four years. The New England Patriots of 2007 were not the same guys.

    So I hope this offseason the coaching staff pops in some of those ol' Three Games to Glory DVDs, watches what those old Patriots were made out of, put away that ridiculous air-it-out offense and go back to basics. Basic Patriots football, that is.

    Umm . . . they couldn't get caught up in the hype because there wasn't as much hype.

    I'm serious--the media coverage today is probably double, if not more, what it was in 2002. Don't believe me? Look at all the anal-ysts [sic] covering the game.

    FWIW, there are two ways of looking at the season: the destination, and the journey. Do you see this season as a failure? Apparently, yes. And that's your right. It's also my right--and that of a lot of other posters here--to see it as merely a disappointment, rather than a failure.

    I'm as disappointed as anyone here, but this season was one I will never forget for many reasons. The records, Randy Moss, Wes Welker, nailbiting games, blowouts, you name it. I will never forget any of it for sure; just wish I could forget Sunday night.
