Hey there Yehoodi,
I always admire your balanced objectivity about your Massachusetts football team every single yr since I've known you. You know how formidable the Jags are with their LBs, secondary, & ability to collapse the pocket up the middle when necessary. No easy path to victory as you suggest.
Yep, the playoff Gods can make anything happen this time of yr. I know I said in another thread that NE has enough hardware already, but I also understand why loyal NE fans would like to go out on top with this coaching staff since McDaniels, Patricia, & so many integral parts of this 2001 dynasty ride will be gone next season. I get it. Win or lose on Sunday, major props to Bill, Robert, Tom for all the success this franchise has pulled off over a decade. 5 SBs with a possible 6th in the midst is nothing to sneeze at or dismiss outright. It will be a dogfight for the ages regardless of the final score.
