In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
Babe I think there is some good news to come out of this.
Belichick seemed particularly humbled at the postgame press conference. I think he realized that his team was simply outmatched talent wise in significant areas. He realizes that while injuries played a part, he can't simply tag this year's loss on tough luck and players going down. Seeing his guys get physically dominated helped him to realize even though he is smarter at "coaching 'em up" than the guy across from him, that in the heart of the postseason, it's not enough.
He realizes that when the other team holds the ball for most of the game, he's not going to win.
I believe he will make some changes on his personnel philosophy as a result.
Fortunately, unlike his apologists in here who excuse his GM shortcomings, Belichick is not above reflection and change. And I believe he will change and that the roster we see on opening day next year will reflect those changes. This Welker thing is going to eat at him in the best way possible. Belichick is a champion and he won't take this lying down.
It wasn't tied to injuries? LOL!
Arguably the best LCB in the AFC and the best TE in the NFL not being there, didn't help Denver?
I think it's time to stop pretending. I've never seen a 12-4 team like that experience more injuries before, one of which simply could not happen in the title game.
Team was loaded and the rookies all contributed. If the injuries did not occur, I am not even kidding when I say the Pats are a 15-1 or 16-0 kind of team and the road goes through Foxborough.
This is becoming embarrassing. 90% of fanbases drool over what we have and somehow there is a lack of talent? LOL!
Some of their best talent on both sides of the ball wasn't available. Sometimes it's just not your year in that area. This was absolutely one of those years.
I've never seen a team lose so much and act like it didn't matter. Incredible year from BB and Caserio plugging holes in the roster. Absolutely incredible. Might be the best in NFL history.
I'd like to know what BB's shortcomings are at this point. Please explain, supposed Troll Spanker.
So loaded that they fell apart without Talib. Idiot.
