    Just remember that we won the SB, that should make you feel better.

People are hanging their hats on the past and the prior SB wins, as if they'd rather bask in the glow of those instead of seeing them win another one. No one should be giving them a free pass. I dont expect them to win the SB every year because that would be stupidly unrealisitic, but I'd sure like to see them be a legitimate contender for one every year, and folding after week 8 each and every year is not going to make it likely. I saw a lot of folks crying about the media not giving them "enough" respect in the past couple of seasons. While some of the perceived disrespect was in fact a bit harsh, look at the numbers. Up and down, up and down.....a good team, or even a great team, doesn't allow that kind of performance, and no one who gets paid for their opinions is going to slobber all over a team who cant consistently play 2-3 games in a row with good results.

          Now you are just being petulant. While a SB shouldn't be used to gloss over seasons of mediocrity, the fact that a couple have been won very recently cannot be overlooked because people are being prisoners of the moment.

              Everything you've been complaining about? Thats been Coughlins MO ever since he's been here in 2004. Look at the Giants history in that timeline. That's just the way it is with TC. Nothing will change that.

                Sorry, but that's not okay with me in my book.
                I don't think he's horrible enough to fire him, definitely not, but I will never just be like "eh..THAT'S FINE!".

                      9-7 is mediocre. I don't care if it's over .500. Not making the playoffs is mediocre as well.

                      If you think they are successful, that's fine.

                      And Tom Brady is Tom Brady lol.

                        I dont think thats success lol. but I wouldn't say its mediocre either. Mediocre is like not having a chance to even get 5 wins.


                        But if you want to call it that then that's your prerogative.

They are loaded with talent across the board. Thinking they wont make it back to where they were for a while is a ridiculously misguided statement.
                          They aren't gonna be able to afford all the FA's that make their team great. Any 49er fan will admit, these past two years were their best shot. It is extremely hard to get back to the SB after losing it as probability has shown. The Pats made it back after 5 years, taking advantage of an extremely weak AFC. SF doesn't have that luxury. Seattle is on the rise and poses a huge threat within the division. The Seahawks creamed them last year. The Packers, Falcons, Seahawks, Giants, Saints, Bears, heck even the Redskins are all threats in the playoffs and hungry. It's not that much of a ridiculous statement as one would assume. The niners won't just coast back. Also they might not be as lucky with having hardly any injuries throughout the season like they did this past season.

                              • Ask yourself in the 2007 season, would you want to be 18-1? How much would you trade for a 19-0 season if you are in the brink of it? Would you rather make all the playoffs for the next 5 years or win that perfect season?

                                My only point is that if you put yourselves in a Patriots fan's shoes, you won't be happy with just making the playoffs for so many years, being so close and not winning the whole thing. I believe there will be more frustration than the frustration people feel now. I can honestly say I would be extremely frustrated and would have been depressed for a couple of days if we had a chance for a perfect season and squandered it and that that loss would have always lived with me. I'm glad we were not at the receiving end of that loss. And I have to admit, being the underdog and robbing them of the perfect season was such an amazing feeling. It makes me happy every time I think of it.

                                There is a disappointment because we don't make the playoffs every year, and that disappointment comes from the fact that we have two recent Super Bowls so people have high expectations. But hey it's so much better than be in a "given up" state or "acceptance" state where failure is just a norm and you suck it up. Like being an Eagles fan, I would say you probably have hopes (some high) start of every season, but when you ultimately fail to win that trophy, it's just business usual, and you're just able to accept it easily because there was never precedence of success. In other words, this could have been the dark days of the 90s for us, but it is not and we have higher expectations, thus probably more disappointment. If you do ask yourselves honestly, I don't think you'd like to be the Patriots fan for most of these last 10 years either because I don't know of any fan who will just be happy of making every playoffs and not winning one. I do think among all fans, we probably have the best experience these last few years because we've won two and made the best of our opportunities given how precarious our chances to get there in the first place. If you think there is another team who's had better than us in the last five years, lemme know.
