We are not the Patriots we are not the Steelers, we are not even the Bears so I can get the guys that blister the moves Detroit makes, I even agree with some of them and it makes the arguements and opinions better but thats just my take
Well once upon a time the Patriots were pretty much the Lions. I remember always having hopes of maybe making the playoffs and they'd go out and win 3,4, 5 games. Those were the good years lol. Similiar to the Lions lately...have a good year, expect to improve the next year but noooooo....I never gave up on them(life long mass w hole, they're 'my' team!) but I did become more of a fan of the game. This was the 80's so I liked watching the 9ers and Giants, or great players like Elway and Marino...I appreciated excellence/dominance which doesn't seem to be very popular these days. Everyone hates lol. But it did get to the point I figured I'd never see them (Pats) win a SB. Same with the Sox....So if teams like the Pats and Saints can win SBs, anything is possible. Sticking by them just makes finally winning that much sweeter. I'm not a very emotional guy but the first SB win and the Sawx breaking 'the curse' both brought a tear to my eye lol. 30 years of heartbreaks before that.
1 thing you'll never see me do is rip on a fan for rooting for a 'crap' team.(well maybe the Jets, I'm only human) If anything I have total respect for those fans.(again, cept for the Jets!) I used to be one and I'm sure at some point, eventually, waaaay down the road I will be again
Good luck next season.
