    Hold on everyone! I've been reading the board and have absolutely no clue why we are all freaking out about losing this year. Now is not the time to jump ship. OK so we play the Jets on Monday Night in their house. I think we can win this game and keep the dynasty alive. The Jets either stink it up or they look like the greatest team. I hope some Pats fans brave the weather, travel to the Meadowlands, and buy tickets from scalpers so we can show them we are great fans win or lose. Plus we will spend lots of money at their concession stands so Jets fans don't complain when you see us rooting and munching away at your stadium. I admit we are not as good as we were during the Super Bowl years, but unlike the majority of people in New England I am not going to just pack it in and talk about the Red Sox and Celtics. My uncle in Boston says the guy who sits in the cube next to him at work thinks the Pats are not in good physical shape and he is looking ahead to draft day. This also seems to be the attitude of many who post here. C'mon guys, we have to stick together and believe we can win, even if things look bleak. Go Patriots!

    That is so true... out of my friends down here, I think im the only fan who actually beleives a 3 peat is not only possible, but highly likely.

    Even if we DO loose... i will remain a loyal pats fan

    Well that was very rude of you to call me a bad name like that. I thought all of us PATS fans are in this together. Just because I'm not saying the politically correct things that you want to hear, ok I get that, freedom of speech for all. But at least I am not afraid to call out my brethren when I see the majority of them panicing about this season and want to throw in the towel. I should think you would applaud that.

    Forget this character guys. It's someone from the Indy Star BB who is doing his best to impersonate "ManningsArmy" - a poster over there who claims to be a Colts fan but does his level best to instill fear in Colt fans regarding the Pats. He's right of course, but that's for another discussion....:)

    Just forget this Pat Summerall guy here on our board.

    By the way, PATS are Points After Touchdowns. The team in Foxborough is the Pats.

    Indy Ken....Please retract as that is a highly unfair assumption. I have never ever been on an Indy Board as you claim, let alone post there. Geeez, is this the welcome I get here. I thought we were all rooting for the same team. This is worse than friendly fire. Maybe I am a little scared of the Jets game on Monday night, but at least I am honest and just as God made me.

    Thanks for asking the question. I'd like to know too. It's a little hurtful, that's for sure but this is the NFL and I can take a hit or even a sack. All I ask is that you do not blindside or facemask me. I have feelings too. We win and lose together. That's what a team is all about. I just hate it when we have been winners and now all the sudden, so many are giving up after 14 games and that's my whole point. Memo to the pessimists......we're still alive and not eliminated. So until we are, I'm gonna believe this is a good team and nobody can tell me that is isn't.

    Get out of here, troll.

    You're fooling no one, and making a fool of yourselves, along with the rest of the Indy Colts community.

    It's a curious post and has a somewhat contrived feeling to it. I always try and give people the benefit of the doubt, but.....I'm not sure about this one. If we see this poster is still active in a few weeks, we'll know he's for real. On a side note, his observation about everyone giving up is a few weeks old. If anything, I sense many posters now seeing us as Super Bowl bound.

    I don't get it. Why can't he express an opinion? I almost sold my tickets a few weeks ago after the Chiefs game.

    BestPansFan? Noooo, not really! A BestPatsFan does not give up on his team like that, not after 2 consecutive Super Bowls, not understanding that the potential and a solid core of veteran players could make a run in the play-offs.

    Hell, if the 2001 team could pull it off, no reason this team can't.

    You've got me turned around on this point. I just get very frustrated when my team doesn't live up to their potential. The Chiefs have an "Old School" coach in Vermeil--- and I respect that--- but, that doesn't mean I can't blow off a little steam when they beat us. Frankly, I'm still smarting from that old-fashioned spanking they gave us a few weeks back.

    Maybe the fact that he comes on a board and blasts everyone for their devotion to the team in his first post? Nice way to get a reception.

    I really would like to ask this question. Last night a post was started by someone named Mr. Tibbs (Senior Member). The post was titled "Johnny Damon Is A New York Yankee" When you read the post, he says, "Red Sox are falling apart."

    Why isn't this guy getting the same treatment as me? All I said was "Why are PATS fans giving up." Is that really much different than the Red Sox are falling apart?

    Plus why is this post about baseball on this forum. I have no problem with Mr. Tibbs at all. My point is why is there a double standard?

    I'm gonna try to be polite here, Patsummerallofthe80s.

    Your premise is wrong. You're asking a "have you stopped beating your wife question".

    The people on this board haven't given up on anything--they never did, even at the worst point in the season. They were discouraged, but they are loyal and always will be. And from loyalty springs hope eternal.

    The people who post here know the quality of the Patriots' players, coaches and management. They also know that football is an unpredictable game, in which injuries and luck play a large role. We understand that victory isn't inevitable or predictable even for the best team in decades, which is what this is.

    Even in the team's darkest days, we knew it would be back. We didn't know it would be back so soon, but we knew we'd be in the fight for the championship, if not this year, then next year. That's because we know those three Superbowls in the last four years are no accident. They are the product of intelligence, determination and class.

    So asking us why we've given up our team is insulting. We haven't come within a light year of giving up. We haven't even considered giving up. The thought hasn't occurred to us. We've felt BB's and Brady's pain, not to mention Rodney's. We've seen the frustration. But we have been and we are confident that better days lie ahead.

    Will we win the Superbowl this year? Well, we've been weakened by injuries. But the heart and spirit of the Patriots is as strong as ever. If we lose, the team that beats us will feel damn lucky to have gotten out of the game alive. And we will have nothing whatever to be ashamed of. But anyone who bets against the Patriots this year is taking a risk.

    I feel bad for people who take the time to sign up for multiple accounts just for trolling. It's very sad.
