I grew up in Massachusetts. Lifelong Pats fan - the last few years have eclipsed all the former disappointments. I would have liked seeing Favre in the Super Bowl one more time too but unfortunately, they didn't keep it together in the game that counted. The Giants deserve to be in the big one this year. I'm glad the Pats have a worthy opponent here, not someone who will roll over with a little pressure. Hats off to Eli - looks like he's developing into another hall-of-famer. You can count the guys playing today on one hand that show that "ice in their veins" poise when the going gets tough. Order your pizza early; get ready to settle down and watch history being made. This is going to be a good one.......

Spy gate - nothing new; they got caught and stopped immediately. You wonder why none of the other teams pushed the matter? They were too busy selling their video equipment on EBay. Countless comments from current and former players and coaches after that game confirmed the fact that it has been happening in one form or another for 20+ years. Good wake up call for all. It should make everyone pay more attention to the rules. P.S. huge thanks to the JETS for the motivation this season. Lucky breaks - If every close call this year went the other way, the standings wouldn't be close to what they are now. The fact is, after a lot of review, the calls stood. If you honestly think the Pats were the only team to get a break this year, you are probably a figure skating fan. Watch more football next year. Bottom line is, there are a few incredibly talented and well coached teams right now that will provide an exciting post season for true afficianados this year. bdaddy, Nakeman and Ghastly1 - spot on! Everyone just sit back, enjoy the ride, and for Pete's sake, if your team is already on a golf course in Florida, please quit whining.
