THE STREAK IS OVER
FAST FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
10-0 postseason run ends
with a 27-13 loss in Denver
- 5 turnovers are truly uncharacteristic of a Belichick team
- Ben Dreith would have been proud of the phantom pass interference call on Samuel that changed the entire game.
- Had the officials gotten the Ben Watson freight training of Chump Bailey correct, it would have to be considered one of the most incredible clutch plays in postseason history...
(National media outlets have reported that the overhead camera angle was inexplicably unavailable during the review, and that subsequent viewing of the angle showed that it should have been a touchback, Patriot ball on their own 20 yard line).
Knowing that the Pats did not win it this year means that Doug Flutie will retire without appearing in a Super Bowl. So, to me that is the only negative feeling I have tonight.
Pats will be back stronger this same time next year.
See you in Miami, SB 41

As for Doug, I wouldn't count him out just yet. He is in the perfect situation for this stage of his career, and would be welcomed back by Belichick and the team.
