I agree with you, HQ. The amount of Pats fans who are resigned to Brady/Belichick era being over is staggering. Maybe Brady is gone but I think one if not both of them comes back for one last run. The Pats Dynasty is ending with another Super Bowl or a crappy sub .500 season. I just don't see it ending with a middling Wild Card round loss.

How many people said The Patriots were over when the Ravens clobbered them in 2010?

Was it just me or were there a lot of anti-Pats fans at Gillette last night?  Seemed like there was a noticeable roar particularly when Edelman dropped that pass and when the last punt got pinned at the 1.  Was I just hearing things?

Not just you. Seemed like there were a lot of 'road' fans for the two AFC playoff games. I heard on the radio that Houston actually had to use a silent count at one point because of the Bills fans at the stadium.

It's certainly possible. There was a lot of doom and gloom regarding this team. I think honestly a sizable portion of the fanbase wishes they'd gone 4-12 instead of 12-4. Even when they were 8-0, people thought the sky was falling.

belichick is not what he used to be, when you guys realize that it's gonna be p. sweet

Good effort from the Bills. Youth and inexperience cost them, but they seem to be taking the loss the right way, especially Allen:

Quote
"There's some things we should have hit on," Allen said postgame, according to ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques. "I put that on my shoulders, especially with how well our defense played today. Teams go how their quarterbacks usually go, and I've got to be better for this team."

good maturity from this kid, feels like the team has a bright future. It doesn't feel like the losses from the past, this time it feels like a learning experience. Next season will show what's what, but with all the high-performing rookies on this team, it's hard not to think they take a step up.


I can't believe a guy can be that big, and jump around like he does what a great athlete!

also, it's awesome that the pats dynasty ended in a game where Brady's last play was the pick-six, and Belichick had his own rule manipulation used against him to cost him the game.

1:36 is the new 4:20 LOL

New England sports talk radio is doom and gloom and saying Belichick is washed so maybe this is one case where Sully from Revere was ahead of the curve?

This is great stuff, Imagine celebrating like it's the first time they ever lost a playoff game. Brady or no Brady, as long as Belichick is running the show they will be a threat to keep winning going forward. He's far from perfect, and his mistakes are magnified bigtime because he's held to a higher standard than every other coach/GM in the league, but he's far better at what he does than anyone.

Whyyyyyyyyyyyyy!?




Not saying I'm hopping on any teams' bandwagons but I do like Kirk Cousins as a person and won't be bothered if he gets a ring, once I calm down.

I might just go all in on the Ravens, though, until the offseason.

That chart just tells me that Jim Plunkett is the GOAT. A lot of those games he was expected to lose, unlike Starr who was a favorite for pretty much all of them.

The Raiders also had one of the best supporting casts in history for their 1983 win, and none of those playoff games were close. Cliff Branch should be in the Hall of Fame with the defensive players who got in.

I had a sick thought at work today: The Raiders should sign Brady. He has to be an upgrade over Carr. Think of all the shops on the Strip selling silver and black Brady jerseys.

Of that list, I think it's equally telling that Brett Favre only won 1 Super Bowl and went just 13-11 and those Packers teams were deep at times on both sides of the ball.
