the best part of the rats loss is they will live with that "just if" and "woulda, coulda, shoulda,..." for the rest of their lives.
it will haunt them and burn in their guts forever. they were so close to their dream, had it in their hands, and completely dropped it. had that one second, that one instant ended differently, they couldve achieved the glory they so desire.
the other good part is that the patriots didnt win that game. the ratbirds handed it to them. the patriots know they are lucky just to be there and at some point with a horrible defense that luck will run out (just like it did in 07).
