Default Good news from the loss!

Ok yes we lost and by alot, but we played a very good game on most aspects of the ball.
1.Ben had a great game with 69% of completions with one TD and no INT's!
2.Parker goes over 100 yards on the night looking very strong
3.The o-line has a B+ day only giving up 2 sacks, but making wholes for Parker.
4.The defense causes pressure, but not enough for Brady
5.ST still lacking shortly

If we would have played any other team we would have had an easy victory!
I guess it just shows the pats abilities!?

I don't like the way the D packed it in after the trick play. We were still in the game at that point.

Yes, there were a few positives, but the very simple truth is this. . . .

The Pats played 60 minutes of football while the Steelers played 30. Can't do that and expect to win no matter who the opponent is.

One potential mental edge for any potential rematch will be Troy starting in place of you know who at safety and the D drawing strength from that..

It was a butt whipping but ask yourself this - did you think the Steelers would win twice this year in Foxborough?

Remember 2005 and the Colts

[B]lYou can try to put a positive spin on the game but in my estimation, we didn't belong on the same field. Some personal observations on the slaughter:
1. We had the momentum right from the beginning, but due to poor play calling, we had to settle for a field goal. NE was charged up and came down the field for an immediate TD. Brady and Moss made us look like patsies!
2. Where were our safties in this game?
3. As usual, Vrabel killed us. He's constantly making us pay for not keeping him and seeing his potential when we had him.
4. I have never seen any QB get rid of the ball as quick as Brady does.
5. They didn't have to run the ball at all. Where was our pass defense?
6. We needed to knock Brady on his a---, but we couldn't do it.

I believe we've also clinched a playoff berth despite the loss, so that is good as well. At least, that's what it said on the ticker after the game.

Great point!

We were just scouting today for our trip in January!
