In response to agcsbill's comment:
Uncle Rico, there is NOTHING wrong thinking your team can win the SB. Are you saying Pats fans should lower their expectations and not feel the team could win the SB? That is the sign of someone who is willing to lose instead of striving for the top. Since I like to play golf, it is like a golfer who immediately thinks that shot over the water is going into the drink instead of having the positive thoughts one can make the shot. Just sayin'!
Are you serious?
I have been a winner at every sport I have participated in, don't let my silly avatar and screen name fool ya. As a QB I did lead my HS team to a state championship, that's why I used Uncle Rico because it is so funny considering what he wanted to do, I actually did it. So don't talk about sports psychology with me.
The problem here is we aren't playing, we have no say in the outcome of the Patriots season. For people to simply just come on here and say 12-4 and win the Super Bowl is ridiculous. That is homerism at it's finest, especially considering all the problems with this team.
I keep reading on here that we are 6-2, 6-2!! WOW!! We expect to get to the playoffs so records really don't mean much, do they? Look at the Giants. They were 0-6, they could actually still win their division. How crazy is that? So don't talk about records to me, talk about talent. And please, just stop making foolish statements. Based on what we have witnessed from this team over the last 8 weeks if you really think we are going to win the Super Bowl then you are nuts! Absolutely nuts and you need a reality check! We are lucky to be 6-2, we are not a 6-2 team. Looking at past years are we really a better team? Heck no! But if you really think we are going to be Super Bowl Champs then please put your money where you mouth is. Come on!! If you are so easily convinced we will win the Super Bowl lets put a wager on it? Talk is cheap because if people had to actually back it somehow there wouldn't be so many people making these silly claims.
Sure we love our team and we want them to win it all every year, but to say we will this year so matter of factly with all the problems we have, it is homerism at its highest level.
The Patriots have to make huge improvements over the next half of the season to even be considered a Super Bowl contender.
