In Response to Bellichek,I always try to do what's best for the team?
[QUOTE]Hello Pats Fans I did not write after the loss I wanted the Pats to hush Ryan Now I want to vent some thoughts on the loss. . When I see the Pats play so poorly, it reminds me of Neil O'Donell of the 'Steelers throwing 3 pick 6'sto the cowboys in a few yrs. ago back.in 3 Rivers Stadium no less. It reminds me of the Sonny Liston K.O. vs M. Ali . A DIVE. YOU DON'T LIKE THE FACT THAT THIS IS PROFESSIONAL ATHLETICS AND NOT SPORT? I enjoy the sport of football not players not playing at their best because of market influences. In censurng Wes did BB do the right thing? NO WAY He could have waited until the playoffs were over and fined the guy. Welker has demonstrated such desire and commitment to the team coming back from a knee injury in record time, iit is a terrible slap in the face to him-even if he was intentionally satirizing Ryan.,which cannot be proven. BB's timing is so far off key and afield that it had to contribute NEGATIVELY to the team's total attitude and performance. I think that he should retire next season and let some new philosophy take control while thrre is a championship nucleus.. Who that is , I don't know? This team which played so well during the season was not ready to win this game. And it was something other than the 2 weeks layoff. It appears to have been a mental letdown. I believe spawned by Bb's handling of this whole Jets verbal diatribes against the Team Don't be too optimistic in any future seasons. This team may dissapoint again with this coach in control. And be thankfull that Bob Ryan of the Globe can resurrect his 3 year old article on how to forget about this year's Pat';s early elimination.

don't ever utter that statement about Belicheck Retiring and giving up his head coaching position for the New England Patriots, you might give some of the "in Bill we trust" Pats fans a severe cardiac heart attack upon reading this. Seriously, they swear by this man that he can do no wrong and that this 14-2 season that was not supposed to be, was something of an accomplishment to be proud of instead of seeing it as a complete failure given the circumstances.
They don't think that any coach in the world can come into the New England Patriots, instill a new philosophy and make this team a winner. Somehow, Bill Belicheck's silly "Patriots way" is engraved in stone and cannot be duplicated by another coach.
I am not orverlooking and dismissing his accomplishments, i am not being greedy, wanting to win a superbowl EVERY YEAR because that has not been the case. We can tell which year was a superbowl bound year or not and this year was certainly one of them. What i am very upset about, and maybe the same goes for some fans, is the manner in which they loss, the opponent they loss to and the circumstances involved this year to have made it all the way.
the Pats were at home, they had beaten the Jets before, they showed no dam life in that game, they had 2 weeks to prepare. To hear Wes Welker say that they only prepared for one thing and saw another, thats a dam shame. what the hell were they doing during those 2 weeks. Brady and his Gislut went to see a broadway show while the Jets were playing Peyton Manning, that alone should tell you how much he really took this game seriously. when asked about it, he made light sarcastic comments. Given how Brady played like a chicken sht, looking unprepared and totally lost, you wonder if staying back home in the film room would've been better then strotting around with that.....arrggggggh. i swear, start preping a new QB already.
