[QUOTE]In Response to Re: This doesn't make any sense : Riigght.... seem to remember the exact same prediction last off season. Keep up the good work. So, what you are saying is that it is better to win 11 games rather than 9 and lose in the first round instead of going to the championship game and to win 14 games rather than 11 and lose in the first round AGAIN instead of going to the championship game. That sounds like a patsie fan take on things. I just love the overachievement excuse. You're good enough to win 14 games, and beat the likes of Pit & GB during the season, but you were actually expected to choke in the playoffs? You have one of the best QBs in football who again is on the best offense, but that was actually overachieving, so you were actually expected(except by EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON THIS FORUM) to lose your third playoff game in a row. Basically, what you are saying is, the pastsies did not belong in the playoffs.

"Excuse"? It's called a fact.
They weren't a 14-2 dynasty era type team. So, yes, they overachieved. We all know they don't have a legit pass rush.
Until that happens, we aren't seeing a SB here. That was their main flaw last year.
See, we're realists and are honest.
Meanwhile, you are delusional.
I had them at 12-4 and then when Ty Warren and Bodden went down, I adjsted it to 11-5 with their tough schedule. I don't think anyone had them at 14-2, stupid.
Hence why BB was coach of the year, yet again.
And rightfully so. The team had 15 people on IR and had a boatload of issues/distractions to deal with all year.
The Pats belonged in the playoffs, but I think even the biggest homer fan knew they were on thin ice. They were counting on a lot of 1st or 2nd year players at key positions to rise up even more.
What I like or any Pats fan should like is people like Sebastian Vollmer, Pat Chung, Rob Gronkowski, Devin McCourty, Jerod Mayo, Dan Connolly, BJGE, Danny Woodhead, etc, etc, are younger core players, but now have some experience under their belts.
They'll be far, far less holes in the playoffs in the coming years.
And DEEP DOWN, you know this. This is why you come here. Fear of the reality.
My same prediciton is the same one every year: The Jets are not winning a SB with that team building approach or in your lifetime. How old are you anyway?
