I still can't believe we ALMOST did the same thing last year (I think at one point in that game Belichick was confronted with a similar 4th and 2 situation again trying to kill the clock lol)

God if we could've just won that game last year it would've been our best win of the season

I was there in section 512 with a bunch of friends. When Welker ran that punt back we got ready to leave. I told my wife when they scored we were gonna head for the door. Maroney fumbled it taking it in and we had it.

We had a bunch of LOUD and arrogant Pats fans in our section. (I know, it's hard to imagine those kind of people exist, right?) They were giving us crap all night. In the last half of the 4th they got real quiet.

Then came the 4th down. We were going ballistic because we were getting the ball back, and when everyone realized they were going for it, it was like a panic set in...

It was the right call. Billichick knew that Peyton getting the ball back meant we were going to win. It didn't matter if he got the ball back on the 20, the 50, the far 70, or all the way up on 96th street. He was going to score and win that game. To punt was a loss. The only way to win was to get the 1st.

When he juggled it we went nuts. The Pats fans in our section were sitting down, their heads in their hands, and it was our turn to stick it to them.

Then we started to drive. As we were lining up for the play that Peyton threw the TD on, one of my buddies went "OH GOD, ANYONE REMEMBER 2003 WHEN EDGE COULDN'T SCORE ON 4 DOWNS FROM THE 1?!"

Yeah, as you can imagine, that didn't go over well. I thought Andrew was gonna get lynched for that one.

Luckily enough, though, Peyton threw the TD to Reggie, and the place came un-freaking-glued.

I just sat down and cried. I was that happy. That game is better than the one we beat them in the AFCCG IMO. I got to be there for it, and I believe we beat a much, much better Patriots team in that game than in the AFCCG. Best game of all time, IMO, and I still have it on my DVR and I watch it every couple of months.

I was at that game in the north west corner... Cant remember section but I think (or at least felt like I was) the first person to scream fumble because I saw the ball drop to his waist before he was hit... Had so pats fans yelling at me from behind about my 21 jersey and him not playing.... Make fun of my injured colt... I preceeded to verbally lash patriots fans all around throught the amazing comeback...

Loved every minute of it!

    • Then begs the question. Do u want to say draft a MJH at 4 and turn around in 4 years or would u say draft Turner and pay him 30mill in 4 years? All day every day for the franchise rush end. I am not a big believer in 30 mill for a wr. Reid is a fantastic coach and look what he did with Hill.
    • I literally just posted that clip, it's where the conversation about QBs started.
    • Funny you brought this up.  I just listened to an interview Ballard did today with Rich Eisen.  He asked him if he has given any thought on how many quarterbacks will be taken before our pick and how many does he think.  He said sure we go through those evaluations.  It helps us with for planning purposes.  He asked him how many.  4 or 5 or 6?   He laughed out loud at 6.  He said Rich if it’s 6 we will be so excited.  Let’s hope so.  He also said the draft board is not yet set.  Won’t be until the night before the draft.  He also said he has had multiple conversations with other GM’s concerning the draft.  Preparing themselves for opportunities that could take place.  And they will continue up until the draft starts.  He said trade conversations won’t really materialize until you are within three picks of any trade.  Giving you time to finalize it.  Interesting interview.  Oh he pretty much ruled out moving up for Harrison.   Going up into the top of the draft would be very costly for him he said.  Thinks he’s a great talent but he thinks he’s pretty much out of our reach.
    • I personally wouldn’t touch Williams with a 10 foot pole. He seems like a distraction and cancerous. He may be Uber talented but I don’t feel like he is a winner, and don’t feel like his heart is in it. I think he gets the bag and just sets it on cruise control. There is absolutely nothing to base this off of aside from my gut feeling.  Maye Daniels  Penix Nix McCarthy   Maye is your prototype passer and I think his deficiencies are easily fixed with good coaching.   Daniels seems the most limited to me, proficient and will be very dependent on where he goes.    Will always have a soft spot for Penix, he throws such a pretty deep ball. His 40 time should have opened some eyes.   Nix is probably the safest pick IMO. I think he’s got the tools to fit nearly any offense. Has the athleticism, arm talent and I think he’s got the between the ears to excel in most offenses.   I see the appeal with McCarthy, he was as unselfish as they come allowing the run game to shine instead of checking to pass plays. I think his ceiling is a solid game manager.  
    • I'd imagine he's going bald. Most men his age usually are when they start sporting the caps 24/7.
