    Yeah it sucks that we are not going 16-0, 15-1, 14-2, or even 13-3, but at least no matter what the games are going to mean something. It's going be fun to have the us vs. the world attitude once again.

    Next week will be a lot of fun. The Jets are already marking it down as a W. I think we'll win on hatred and adrenaline alone.

    After that, who knows. It's week to week now.

    This is what I've been saying. There's so many bandwagon/spoiled baby Pats fans, this will either thin the ranks or make them appreciate the team more. Now maybe we won't piss and moan after "only" winning by 14. Maybe now people will appreciate every win. Who knows, maybe Maroney will become a running monster, maybe Moss will become a team leader, maybe the D will step up and be smothering. It sucks Brady's out, yes, but maybe this will instill more appreciation into a decadent fanbase.

    The Jets are extremely overrated. They barely squeaked by a Miami Team that almost went win-less last year.

    The Pats play the weakest schedule in the NFL. They will be fine, even with a back up quarterback.

    It PROBABLY will be fun. If the team rallies around this, plays good defense, runs hard, etc, then it will fun and should be between a 7 and 10 win team. There's a small chance the team will quit without Brady and that will suck - I don't see that happening but it's not impossible.

    I agree and each game will have so much anticipation

    This could also heighten the bandwagon base, if Cassel does well and we continue to win like I think we will, everyone will be a Cassel fanatic

    "You have to admit that it's going to be fun."
    I admit. I admit. I admit.

    It's the kind of fun I prayed against having, but now that it's here, let's party like it's 1999!

    P.s., when we Catholics fall, we fall hard.

    Well it will be nice not having to win by 40 points every week or else risk people questioning if the team is slumping.

    This is not fun for me.. If the Pats were just a good team, maybe I could see it as fun.. but not now.. This is a year of my life I'll never get back

    No. Fun for me is when they're winning big. Now its going to be hours of nervous tension.

    I have to admit that there's a part of me that kind of thinks it will be fun too. Obviously I would vastly prefer it if Tom were at the helm, but at the same time we've gotten so used to seeing this team dominate, and so much of that come through Brady, that at the very least it will add an interesting dynamic to the season.

    I try to remember that this is just a game, so it's pointless to feel sorry for ourselves for being deprived of Tom Brady for a year. I do feel sorry for Brady, for losing a year out of his brilliant career, but I'm not going to enjoy the New England Patriots playing football any less this year, I don't know about you.

    I think that KC game had me on the edge of my seat more than any other Pats game in the past year, Superbowl and Baltimore game withstanding. It's not good, but it could be an exciting year, the Pats are still an awesome team even without Brady, I don't buy the "season is a total loss and life sucks" crap.

    Go Matt! Go Pats!

    +1 on the Brady sentiments. You have to feel for a guy who works that hard. And it was pretty clear he was in perfect form pre-injury as well. :(

    I think this season will be enjoyable if Cassel continues to play reasonably well. If he starts to suck sweaty balls, then it could become depressing real fast.

    So I am gooing to be shamelessly optimistic and hope that our 2009 season starts out with a Brady - Cassel QB controversy. :cool:

    Amen to that. What was fun was watching the Pats utterly destroy quality NFL teams, totally demoralizing them after pounding them into dust.

    This will be intense, as the Pats will have to slug it out week after week now. I love this team and am behind them 100%. My expectations about end results are a little different (I thought they were a 13-win team before, and now I think they're probably no more than a 10-win team), but my expectations about the character, toughness, and effort of this bunch is still off the charts.

    Put it this way: No way on earth that Belichick lets them wallow in their misery. He's gonna ride them hard to show the world that they are not a one-man team.

    Fun is probably not the word I'd use. Interesting is probably a better word for me. I'll definitely be rooting hard.

    No, it won't be fun. Not at all.

    This will be like torture.

    I've sat through every kind of Patriot season except one.

    The kind of season in which the Patriots' offense blew the doors off everyone and then won the Super Bowl. That was fun. And I was hoping to have that same fun this year.

    The torture will be watching teams celebrate our loss of Brady, even if we win more than our share over the next 3 months or 4 months.

    Your right, it is gonna be fun ( I hope).
    Could be worse, down here in Nashville they have to deal with Vince Young. Guys at work went to the game saying Fisher and Young got into it on the sidline because Young didnt want to go back in. This was before he got hurt, The feeling here is that they wasted ANOTHER draft pick and Young probably wont be with the team next year. At least Brady will be back next year (I hope) and thats a much better situation then whats going on down here.

    The three years we won the super bowl we weren't slaughtering teams. We won scrappy games where we wanted it more than them. I guarantee we are going to want it more next week. Injured teams are dangerous.

    The attraction of sports is it's real life drama with the unscripted outcome unfolding as we watch.

    What probably would have been a cakewalk of a season now becomes a dog fight.

    I seriously believe the Pats are going to overcome this set back and beat the crap out of a lot of teams...just maybe not by such a wide a margin.

    This team has an ***** kicking defense and run game and they will wear out their opponents.

    Yes, back to the real NFL. This team is going to have to scrap and claw for every inch. It should be interesting, one game at a time.

    Yeah, its going to be fun. Plus, we will no longer be super anxious of any injury happening on TB, as it has happened already. Go Pats. Kick some ass.:singing:

    I agree, it will be kind of fun. I was amazed how un-upset I was when it became clear that the injury was a season-ender. Now our season doesn't start in December, it starts right now and is going to be an exciting, up and down ride.

    And frankly, call me naive but I think we're still going to the playoffs.

    If we do, it will be so ****ing sweet and I'll be having some very satisfying words with the guy who bored me senseless telling me how the Pats are a one-man team. (And how BB is not a good coach, he just got lucky having Brady and blah blah blah)

    How do you know they won't go 16-0, 15-1, 14-2, or 13-3?

    HOW do you know?

    How DO you know?

    How do YOU know???

    I sure don't know.
