Dear New England Patriots:

Way to choke on your own overconfidence, and way to forget the history that put you where you are in the first place(1). Enjoy your offseason, knowing that your 18 victories were for absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Much Love,

(1)- Pretty much no one (Outside of the Patriots) expected the Pats to win their first Super Bowl victory in Super Bowl 36 against the Rams. Likewise, just about everyone, forgetting this fact, all but crowned them Undefeated Super Bowl Champions before Super Bowl 42 was ever played. Dennis Green would’ve been proud.

    I like what I saw on MSN: “19 and Oh-No!!”

    And who was it that made this possible – could it be the “don’t-even-bother-to-show-up” Giants? MY Giants???

    Ha! I’ll admit, I can’t help but root for the Patriots but as an eternal supporter of the underdog (I.E> E.T.) I was ok with the Giants winning. For one reason, they were clearly the better team. Secondly, the “Tiki Theory” and no Jeremy Shockey probably helped the team actually concentrate on actual football. Finally, no matter if he does a “Reche Caldwell” and drops every pass that comes his way for the next 10 years, I’ll always think David Tyree is an incredible receiver thanks to the ball-against-the-helmet desperation catch in front of a big talking pro-bowl calibur player.

    And apparently Tom Brady’s contract wit the devil has officially expired.

    Okay, who’s soul does the devil want now?
    I’ll let you judge that James.

  1. […] Patriots–I’m pretty sure there were very few people happier than I was when they chocked hardcore in last year’s Super Bowl–I’ve decided I want them to make a 2001-esque miracle run to a Super Bowl […]
