Pats and Seahawks in SB.

Will be one for the ages. Still see Seattle winning it though.

My feelings about the New England Patriots game today ----

As a Patriots fanboy:
Where the hell were they today? They came out with no emotion. They looked lackluster. As with previous games, their first half offensive performance was terrible, but this time no 2nd half comeback. If they had won, they'd be the only team in the league with 3 losses - that would have been cool. And they blew their undefeated home streak. Couldn't even go 8-0 at home this year. And the Bills broke their winless streak at Gillette.

As a football fan:
Belichick had a quandary. A game that meant absolutely nothing. With a bye week next week, don't want the players to go cold sitting out this week too. But what about injury risk? They sat out key components of the offense (to rest them up and let them heal) on the O-line, and Gronk and Edelman Gray. Not too many options on offense. Their opponent had nothing to lose, and pride and a streak to beat to gain. They came in and played. To the positive, the Patriots defense only gave up 17 points. The offense with it's missing weapons just couldn't get anything going. This late in the season you can't expect continuity with new players.

Belichick is smart. The team is smart. They want to play for their fans, but they have one goal in mind, and that is to win the Super Bowl. So on this day, the fans had to suffer a bit. And don't think the Patriots came out to lose. They're probably mad right now.

Go Pats!!

The game had no meaning and they didn't play their most of their starters

It was a meaningless game. Good decision to sit some players and limit Brady's time.... Back in '09, the Pats lost Wes Welker for the playoffs when he tore his ACL in a meaningless game... Belichek remembers that...

As a Bills fan the game was pretty lame from my perspective as well. Puts a big asterisk on our first winning season in 10 years. And an asterik on going 4-2 in the division and beating the Pats in New England for the first time since who knows when. I guess on the plus side, Bills teams in the pace would have easily lost this game even with New England back ups playing in the second half.

But it was not a real win because the game had no meaning to the Pats.
