    Yup! Don't have to look very far back to find evidence that the defense would have stopped Lynch. They stuffed him dead earlier in the game on a 4th & inches... A 4th & short at mid-field in a Super Bowl is a big deal, its a huge play that everyone is going absolutely balls out on... their coach put faith in the offense to get a few inches, and they failed.

    It's one of the perks that comes with the Pats being in and winning so many Super Bowls, it's become comical listening to people's best attempt to explain away the wins... it was annoying when they only had a couple, but now its just hilarious.. "Well, Seattle WOULD have won if they just ran Lynch at the end of the game instead of throwing a stupid interception!", or "Well, the Falcons WOULD have won if they just ran the ball in the 4th quarter instead of throwing it like idiots!", or "the Chiefs SHOULD have won, but the NFL called a bogus 3 yard offsides on Ford who wasn't even near the play!", or... or .... or....

    they could spend an hour going down the list lol

    Belichick's like, "We keep on winning with these stupid uniforms..."

    Ted Washington blew it up.

    If by Rudyard Kipling

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too:
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

    If you can dream — and not make dreams your master
    If you can think — and not make thoughts your aim,
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same:
    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss:
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much:
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And — which is more — you’ll be a Man, my son!

    If no Ben Dreith;

    Steve Grogan is properly recognized in history, and Tom Brady only repeats in 2001 what was accomplished in 1976

    If Victor Kiam simply keeps Doug Flutie;

    The Patriots remain competitive up to Kraft's purchase; Bledsoe isn't drafted by us...

    Does that jeopardize what happened later with Belichick & Brady? Yes. To an unknown extent.

    But, it does lessen the degree of inaccurate on-field Patriots denigration hyperbole. Makes it harder for the media to spin their story of what a joke, disaster and disgrace the franchise was.

    Sure, it's his vintage 1976 Sears & Roebuck Christmas Toy Catalogue (featuring GI Joe with the Kung Fu grip) but still...

    During the SuperBowl that occurred a year earlier, Seattle torched the Broncos with "slants" when they needed short yardage. Our coaches and players properly scouted them.

    If Raymond Berry PLAYS Doug Flutie instead of going back to Eason.

    So what happened was that Kiam FINALLY fired Berry in '89 after the season.

    Eason was also belatedly shipped out of town to the Jets and then was out of the league a year later.

    Kiam, obviously, as the owner, had all the authority and opportunity to sign Doug to an extension, or a new contract, and keep him here. From a PR standpoint, it was a no brainer, as Doug is and always will be a local hero, and a nationally popular celebrity.

    From a football standpoint, the football people who recognized and understood and appreciated Flutie's proven ability - including many in the media - were of course vastly outnumbered by NFL morons who dismissed him due to his size [5 ft 10 in, 181 lb.] and unconventional style (no, I'm sure most of them never heard of Charley Trippi [6 ft 0 in, 186 lb.] or Eddie LeBaron [5 ft 7 in, 168 lb.]). I don't thing Doug lost a game at Foxborough in college or the pros until Tom came back to beat the Chargers in '01.

    So, Doug spends the prime of his career north of the border, setting records that, even if they're ever broken, should still put him in the PFHOF.

    Oh, and similarly to Tom Brady, I must include personal character, dedication, determination and durability.

    Did Doug ever miss a game?

    Also, IF that Mathews guy didn't make that absurdly ridiculous catch to put Seattle in that position in the first place.
