I've been following the Patriots religiously since Bledsoe took over at helm. It's been 28 years and I'd love to share some of the memories we've had with the 90s patriots, then Brady years up to now. Let's use this thread to discuss some amazing plays, memories, games, moments since.


I'll start...how about the Vikings game in 94. 3-6 record...Down 17-0 at halftime Bledsoe told Parcells "**** it, let me sling it". He went out and threw the ball an NFL record 70 times and carried us to victory in overtime. We went on a run finished 10-6 made playoffs.

Another...Belichick's intentional safety call against Denver down 24-23 late in 4th quarter in 03. Genius Play Call. We punted and pinched them deep. They punted back to us, Brady threw the game winner with 20 seconds left. Unbelievable monday night victory at Mile High.

Terry Glenn's leaping impossible catch in 96. Anyone remember that? I swear Glenn in his early years looked like a 4.2 game speed out there

In terms of 90s memories.....the back-to-back comebacks against Miami and Buffalo in '98 when Drew had the broken finger were pretty awesome. I remember the Buffalo game had a somewhat controversial pass interference penalty that led to the game winning TD pass, and the Bills walked out leaving no defense for the extra point. Vinatieri ran it in for 2 which I found funny.

when my friend got PCd after the Baltimore game in 2000. I've never seen an individual consume as much beer as my buddy did that day - we're talking a 3-4 beer/hour pace from 8 am until we all stumbled up the hill to the stadium around 1230. it's no wonder he got locked up. it was doubly funny because when we got home he had left us a message to pick him up at Foxboro PD. he was barely speaking English at that point.

Already listed were the Vikings comeback in 94 and the Miami / Buffalo comebacks in 98, and the SB's. All amazing memories. Few more from the 90s:

-Curtis Martin's first run as a rookie week 1 against Cleveland, similar to Corey Dillon's first run as a patriot. Just knew good things were coming from him
- Comeback vs NYG in 96 to wrap up the #2 seed, no super bowl run without that. I think we were down 22-0 in that one. Meggett returned a punt for a td and I remember thinking we actually have a shot here.
-Crushing the Steelers in 96 divisional round - Curtis Martin's huge TD run, stuffing the Bus (recurring theme into the dynasty years lol), one of the most dominating wins I've seen.
_ Otis smith fumble return for a TD against the jags to wrap up the super bowl trip in 96

The 2000's just have too many to list

As far as games go it's all of the Super Bowl wins. The other thing that sticks in my mind that I'll never forget is the first game after 9/11/2001 when the FDNY Andruzzi brothers ran onto the field with their brother Patriots guard Joe Andruzzi. The brothers were carrying American flags. The team IIRC followed. It was special because I lost my brother who was also a member of FDNY. My brother was in Tower 1 when it fell.

For me...I think it was the goal line stop versus the Colts in maybe 2004ish....

I was travelling for Thanksgiving...and taped the game on my VCR...yes...a VCR....

IGNORED all the news all day....didn't even look at a TV in the airport....I didn't even have a fancy smart phone then....

Got home late...put the game on the TV without watching ESPN or the news...fast forwarded through all commercials and half time...then just let the 4th quarter play it out at normal speed...

Wild win....one of my favorites.....

I'll keep it off the field. Way too many on the field ones.

The day Parcells was hired was a great day.

The day Bledsoe was drafted was a great day.

The day Kraft bought the team was a great day.

The day the move to CT died was a great day.

The day Pom Pom was fired was a great day.

The day BB was hired was...meh...but it was back to Tuna DNA which I was excited about.

The day Bobby Grier was dismissed was a great day.

Physically leaving Foxboro Stadium the last time after THAT GAME was a great day (night).

Opening night at Gillette was a great night.

The day BB said it was Tom's job was as great day (I was done with Drew)

The first Duckboat parade was a great day. BB and Ty dancing at City Hall Plaza.

Every banner reveal was a great night.

Watching the rest of the league **** themselves when BB traded for Corey Dillon!!
That team in 2004 was so dominant. In fact, 2003 & 2004, the Pat’s combined record was 34-4, winning back to back SBs. Probably the most dominant two year run in the SB era. One of those playoff years, I think it was 2003, the Pats didn’t give up ONE sack in the playoff run (3 games).

I was at the NYG game in 1996. Troy Brown with an unbelievable catch over the middle to keep a drive alive and the Meggett return towards the end zone I was sitting behind are great memories

That when Big Willie got ‘hurt’ and then a few plays later contributed to the stuff and sprinted down the field in celebration ? Loved that. In the Colts’ face.

I started watching in 90’s which I was a young teenager.

The ‘98 season was a wild ride. My favorite season aside from 1996 during the Bledsoe years.

I think the Pats secondary in the late 90’s were ahead of its time because they had the best group celebrations after an INT. I don’t think any other team did this.

Any time Ben Coates caught the ball. That dude was a damn beast!

Glenn catching a deep bomb from Bledsoe.

Watching Curtis Martin run. That may be the biggest mismanagement of a player in a long time.

The day Bill was hired. Yep, I bash the guy a lot. But I was really excited to get him back as he was getting lots of praise for derailing the red hot Pats passing attack in 1999 and him slowing down the Colts who were tearing teams apart in 1999.
The first Super Bowl win.

The Brady comebacks in 2002. They didn’t make the playoffs, but that was a wild season.

Teams getting frustrated trying to move the ball on the 2003 Pats D. That was truly a no ground or fly zone.

The Edgerin James stuff in 2003 at Indy.

Trading for Corey Dillon. Trading a 2nd rounder for a 30 year old RB wouldn’t happen today. He had an amazing season, but he was cooked after that. Underrated RB who was wasted in Cincy. Was also one of my favorite backs before he was with the Pats. Couldn’t believe they got him.

2004 revenge game in Pittsburgh. Bettis losing his cool as he was getting stone walled.

Trading for Randy Moss.

Going 16-0.

Putting a run together with Cassell in 2008.

Anytime Gronk caught the ball.

Trading for Revis.

Malcolm Butler ending the 10 year drought.

Comeback vs Atlanta.

Curtain call vs Rams.
