[quote user="lttaylor56"]It's insane. I loved B's post. I feel like I'm a pressure cooker these past two weeks-having so much trouble concentrating on anything other than the game. I have never been so freaked about a game. It all has to do with the fact that it's the Pat's and what happened in 2007 for me.[/quote]</P>
yea i hear ya. different expectations this time around, am i right? like in 07, we were just so amped to get to where we did!! The Patriots WERE the better team back then. We pulled off THEE greatest underdog win in history(ok thats the homer in me saying that, but it's definitely one of the biggest since Jets/Colts).
This year, we are running on all cylinders and playing awesome football! So yea....I personally have expectations. So it is very nervewrecking.</P>[/quote]Precisely, there's an entire history/drama surrounding this game. In 2007 it was a true David vs. Goliath thing. We had a team that came together at the end of the season, a defense with heart like a lion and a QB who haplessly made the #1 play in Superbowl history. In 2011 our team features a QB with the most 4th qtr td's in the league, a wr salsa dancer who broke a franchise receiving record in his first year, a 2nd year phenom defensive end with 16.5 sacks. It's a totally different story now. The drama is still there saying that NYG took a season 1 game away from complete perfection away from Brady and Bellicheck. Man!!!!!!! This could really not get any better.
