Honestly reflecting today i'm not that upset. It sucks it really does especially since i drove almost 2 hours to a Super Bowl party and I had to sit and think about this the entire ride home. But honestly I hate to say it, when you compare personnel knowing Gronk was hurt, it was really hard to not be doubtful. The Giants running backs are gigantic, their front four are scary good, and their top three receivers might be the best trio in the NFL.
Look at it like this the Patriots played a sick game they brought pressure on Eli, the Punts were good, Victor Cruz was a non factor, and they fumbled three times. If the Patriots can't beat the Giants playing 110 percent. The issue is personnel.
Patriots need to fix some glaring issues:
-personnel (Defense and WR Corps)
-lack of defensive coordinator
-bring in guys who aren't rehab projects
-open their wallets next season
-draft draft draft
on a good note, 5 AFC Championships, 3 Super Bowls, 5 appearances, 10 great great years. Brady is still young and Hoodie isn't going anywhere.
