I know that I'm not the only one who after that game spun the loss as a "learning experience." That the loss was going to be a "teaching lesson" for the rest of the season that the coaching staff could use. All the positive ways to spin a loss etc etc. But after reading this part of Belichick's press conference from Monday, he was asked about the play of the team since the loss: "Well, sure, I think that game was a real life example of not being ready to play as a total team â€“ coaches, players, everybody â€“ not doing a good job and not having a good result. But, again, each week we have a big challenge. It is a huge challenge this week against the Packers. This is a really good football team. But, we played a good team last week and before that and before that and we got them ahead of us. So, each week, we just try to isolate the opponent and look at ourselves and try to find the matchups and understand the game plan, understand how we want to play the game and then go out there and practice it and try to get to the best position we can by Sunday to execute it." There is more to the answer but that's enough to echo my point from that game and those who were thinking along the same lines as me. 6 - 1 at the time and most people saying they were the best team in the league or in the conversation, young athletes who come from winning college programs can think it's just as easy as in the NFL...lesson learned! When this season is over (hopefully the way we all want!) I'm at least going to look back at that loss and believe that the next day THIS Patriots team was born. thoughts?
