I'd be happy to lose to the Pats if it's our third or fourth loss.
I'd never be happy to lose to the Pats.

Yes. The Pats used to be the team that I respect, cuz somehow they manage to come out on top most of the time we played them. But now it's different. I didn't know they were using cameras and all.

This year is tough that now they are trying to win all the games out of frustration because of not being able to use cameras. The game against them would be tough.

I agree, we need to worry about our own selves. Each team plays every other team different. I stil go by the "Any given Sunday" . Remember, the Steelers never make it easy on themselves!

We aren't in their division and we aren't trying to go 16-0. I'd be happy to lose to the Pats if it's our third or fourth loss. Reversal of Fortune.

The bigger game at that juncture of our season will be Jacksonville if the Ravens won't cooperate and go away.
Great post! I agree 100% I really believe in the whole "reversal of fortune" theory. It's so very hard in this day and age to beat a good team twice. We rode that theory all the way to the trophy in '05. The Colts made us look silly on Monday night that year only to have us return the favor when it mattered.

We have also been on the other side of this when we destroyed the Patriots on Halloween in '04 only to be clobbered at home by them in the playoffs.

I know it's un-thinkable that a loss could be good, but it would also have all of the blow-hards in the press writing us off as pretenders if we lost to the Pats. We always seem to play better as underdogs. Someday I would like to see us buck that trend and just purely dominate but right now, I think we still need that little motivation that comes with being dis-respected. So with that I say .....*gulp*.... go Pats?
