11 & 5 - A Great Season

(first though) here is the video version of a few of the plays from the Christmas football game. Because I known you are literally dieing to known, the reason why I am in so many of the highlights are

1. because it's 2 on 2, do da math
2. and more importantly - I told Harold what I was doing before the play

Regarding the New England Patriots and them not making the playoffs... the very fact that this Patriots team, with all the injuries (Tom Brady, Adalius Thomas, Laurence Maroney, etc, etc, etc) was able to go 11 & 5 is amazing in itself. In my view, the Patriots last year were the best team to not win the Super Bowl. This season however, the Patriots were the best team ever to not make the playoffs. You only have control over what you have control over and the Patriots unfortunately couldn't make Brett Favre play like a Pro Bowl quarterback or Matt Cassel. Anyways, great season. It would have been nice to finish it with a Super Bowl victory but that's not going to happen. Next year.

No, I don't think so.

Unfortunately, I think the Patriots championship years are D-O-N-E.

Hey Aaron, you may or may not be right. A lot of people thought the Patriots were done after they lost to the Colts in the AFC Champ. game in 2007 - the next year they made a few great moves and had the 18 & 1 season and were one or two plays away from being the best team ever. This is a smart team that can rebuild, they won't win the Super Bowl each year but as long as Brady or Cassel and Belichick are on the team they will compete every year which is really all you can ask for.

Ummm... I don't really want to brag... but since you wanted to know I'll at least tell you that my team never lost or tied
