    i would also put the Bruins too many men on the ice up there too.

    for me, its still 1986, it would have been 2003 but the 2003 Patriots and 2004 Red Sox more than made up for it. And this Super Bowl loss....how can you get to upset when they've already won it 3 times.

    to me, this SB loss is like the 2001 Yankees blowing the 7th game at Arizona.

    What is the worst is your continuous harping on the SB loss with inane threads like this one.

    you might want to remember something. This IS a Patriots message board, so it is relevant. And they lost. Sorry if you dont want to remember that.

    I would have to say the 2003 Sox loss when I really think about it. I cried as that game ended. I was just numb at the end of this superbowl loss, although I did cry about it briefly a few hours later. Strangely, I find all the spygate crap & the Pats hate harder to take than the loss at this point.

    Hopefully the superbowl loss will just make the next one sweeter, as it did with the Sox.

    On to next year as far as I'm concerned. I just wish they'd get Matt Walsh in a room, beat the crap out of him & get on with it.

    My opinion is this SB loss is the worst by far...to me '86 was huge, I was a little young to appreciate the full weight of it, but, at the end of the day, it was still just a run at the world series, which we have since won and broke the curse et al. 96 (97) SB was bad for me, the Rison play is responsible for a dinner plate sized hole in my wall that was oddly shaped like my arm ;). However, this was THE chance at perfection. PERFECTION. Unheard of. Unheard of in this sport, unheard of in almost any sport. Thought to be a totally dead concept in the era of free agency. The keystone to the most impressive franchise in history, the icing on the Brady HoF cake (and probably the end of the "who is the greatest QB ever" question too). This loss took away more than any loss in the history of pro sports imo. With that said, every loss sucks, and hopefully this motivates the boys even more for this year, because, in my mind, only 19-0 can help erase the magnitude of this loss. Don't get me wrong, if they win the SB this year, I could care less if they do it with a 12-4 record or 14-2, but only 19-0 can really erase 18-1 and the loss in the SB in terms of historical relevance and "biggest loss ever" parlance.

    Screw the Red Sox. This was by far the worst loss.

    Exactly...so why would die hard Pats fans ever put a baseball defeat ahead of blowing the chance to go 19-0 :confused:

    86 loss was stunning - but you kind of expected it. Maybe not as brutal as it happened, but not exactly surprising.

    03 was terrible because they had somehow made you believe that they could do it.

    2007 was the most painful. It actually caused physical discomfort. Even though we were playing with house money - I just did not see it coming at all. I am still not 100% from this.

    One silver lining with this is how pissed it will make Pats fans until we win again. There was a severe sense of complacency at home games this year. A punch in the mouth like the SB really should make it louder in Foxboro next season.

    If football is the most meaningful sport to you then of course this SB.

    This SB loss was the antithesis of Pats playing with house money. Thats one of the reasons it was so bad...

    Definitely this loss, because we were by far the more talented team and there was no excuse for losing to such an inferior team.

    Games like the Super Bowl don't bother me as much and here's why - we didn't even show up. We half-assed our way to a 14-10 lead going into the final minute. The Sox games were hard-fought, just like the AFC title game in Indy.

    '86 Sox was the worst. I've learned to put sports in perspective since then.

    BTW, you know what you get for going 18-0?

    Nothing.:bricks:
