Too many fans ignore the momentum factor. Yeah, we won some games in OT and have shown resiliency. Resiliency won't do crap for you if you're down 24 points midway through the 1st half. You can take resiliency and blow boogers into it at that point, it'd be worth that much.

The Patriots have been absolutely brutalizing opponents. Almost flawlessly. You have to go back to the first few weeks of the season to see a Patriots team that stumbles enough to let the opponent have a crack at 'em.

So in the meantime, I got trolls telling me my worries are unfounded. We've got young fans not understanding that a 10-1 record doesn't mean squat when you're dealing with a franchise such as the Patriots that has 10-1 records at this point of the reg season almost every year for a fugging decade now. Yeah, ummm, I think the Patriots are due some massive consideration for their chances at beating us.

But we've got a 10-1 record. We beat the Lions and the Jags in OT the past two weeks. Meanwhile, people bag on the Ravens for squeaking out a win in OT vs. the Chargers (who SUCK as bad as the Jags and Lions, btw).

Any Given Sunday is real. These next two weeks determine the AFC #1 seed, as well as maybe even our fate as AFCS champs, IMO. If Houston wins the next two games, IMO, we're the lock for it. If we stumble and the Colts keep winning, it's going to get REAL in a hurry around here.

I love confidence, I really do. But like you, I'm looking at a Patriots team that is a whole 'nuther beast from anything we've seen so far. It could be the same outcome as the Green Bay game was. Spread us out, throw it all day, and watch Watt get nullified the whole way. That's what the Patriots will try to do, what will Wade do to stop it???
Great post GP. I agree. We should just pack it up now & go home.

er.. stay home.
