No one believes in our team. They bring up Spy Gate. They make excuses. NE is expected to fail. They don't care from when or where it comes. As long as it happens. Its even better when it happens in the Super Bowl.
2013 was THE year that Tom Brady was supposed to be vulnerable. His targets from previous seasons were gone on to other places or awaiting clearance to play. But here they are. The number 2 seed in the AFC playoffs with a home game. And number 1 with a target on the front, back, side, and head of the franchise.
No one believes in us. Save the faithful. The fans who have endured both losing tough games before Brady was ever thought of. To the winning and consistency this organization has given us over the past 13 seasons.
This game is a magnified step in the process of securing the NFL's most treasured prize. The aptly named Vince Lombardi trophy. The pinnacle of the sport.
Lots of people are still trying to figure out how Bill Belichick has done it. Some have said it is smoke and mirrors. But most believe its only a matter of time. Its only for but so long that NE can keep defying the odds this season.So they can say we told you so.
Tonight the Patriots will continue to prove that they still have heart inside. A toughness and character that the team has lacked for a while now. Until this season. Backed by a bruising running game, Tom has a little more help.
The Patriots don't care if other teams hate them or not. They just try to put the best possible product on the field when its game time. They are encouraged to put aside self for team. They don't hear the accusations, the haughtiness, or see the eye rolling. They just see what is in front of them. A tough Colts team who will come to play tonight.
