[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Babe Parilli vs Rational Pats Fans : I deal with bottom lines TP. I don't know about home-town officiating or divine interventions. I know when you let inferior teams stay in a game any kind of bad break can beat you. Woulda shoulda coulda is just not something I lean on.

Cut it out.
The Patriots overachieved in 2006 by beating a then superior Chargers team, and, but for some horrid officiating (PI call on Hobbs, which handed the Colts TD, and was such a bad call that the NFL sent the Patriots a "letter of apology" after the game...the B.S. offensive PI call against Troy Brown, which cost the Pats a TD...that's a 14 point swing right there), the Pats would have beaten the Bears in the SB.
The 2007 Patriots were one of the greatest teams ever...but they were derailed by a divine final drive, the execution by the Giants' defense of a great defensive game plan, and a monumental distraction launched by the media on the eve of the game. That's not a bunch of excuses. That's a bunch of facts.
How can you criticize either of those squads, even though they didn't win. They weren't one and done in the play-offs...and they both were beaten by the eventual SB champ.
You know, I defended you for your stance on the draft, and your right to be free from personal attacks when stating your opinions. But...is winning an argument so important to you that you're willing to say anything to come out on top?
As for not leaning on coulda, woulda, shoulda, that's exactly what you have done in criticizing BB as you have.
Sorry...you can make a case against BB about what happened in 2009 and 2010...but prior to that, you don't have a leg to stand on. Your seeming insistence that every time the Pats didn't win a championship from 2001-10 was an abject failure on BB's part is ridiculous.
