Since I think we can all agree that the overall goal of this season is to win another Super Bowl (regardless of how special a perfect season would be) I'm contemplating as to which outcome would see the team more driven and inspired to take home another Lombardi? Should the team win next Saturday they'll be 16-0. A perfect regular season - which is a quaint footnote in NFL history but only that if the team falters in the playoffs. Indeed the opportunity to go 19-0 and the pressure NOT to come so close and lose in the playoffs might debilitate some teams but I suspect it will create a high degree of focus and drive for the Patriots. Should they lose next Saturday they'll be 15-1. Some of that pressure they'd otherwise face will be gone but the team I suspect will be exceptionally driven to "salvage" the season by picking up another SB Ring for their collection, and I think they might have some frustrations to take out against any team they encounter in the playoffs. Both scenarios in my opinion create a situation where the Patriots are exceptionally motivated to attain excellence on the football field, so in that sense it's a win win for us in watching our team's drive for a Lombardi no matter what happens next week (much to every other team's lament.) But overall I think they'd be an angry team even more driven to a SB championship if they lose next week. Which scenario do other's think gives the Patriots the most drive to return to and win the Super Bowl?
