Man does this hurt as a Pats fan. But I was on here last week asking Q's and giving predictions, so here's the final view from one Pats fan:
1. I thought all the talk would motivate the Pats as much, if not more then the Jets.
I was very, VERY wrong. The Jets wanted this game more, they were much more physical and proved EVERY word the said leading up to the game.
2. I thought the Jets D would do much better this time against Brady but also thought the Pats D could confuse Sanchez.
Right on the first, off on the second.
Sanchez played pretty damn well and make terrific throws in clutch situations.
Holmes made another absolutely spectacular catch, Edwards and LT made big plays as well. All the big time players, making big time plays. Last when when a bunch of you were saying the Jets were the more talented team, I believe this is what you were referring too.
The Defense played incredibly smart and sound, frustrating TB and getting into his head early. The only thing I can really say poorly about the Jets is your punter is awful and dropping it inside the 20 ;) So um....we got that going for us, YEAH!
Congrats, enjoy it & I think we might get 3 games in season next year when the season goes to 18 games. With the way the last two or three years have gone between these teams, that will be some very interesting football.
Enjoy the rest of your run, see you dudes next year.
