Well, it came down to New England not making mistakes and Jacksonville making some pretty egregious mistakes. You can usually say that in New England games, just replacing the team name for the opponent. This is probably some really obvious that everyone knows, but I need to say SOMETHING to start this thing...

I should probably just predict them in the Super Bowl now, but I think I'll go ahead and wait for tomorrow's game and see if anybody impresses me.

It's going to take a lot tomorrow to convince me that the two winners today are not the Super Bowl teams.

The Tom Brady-bot strikes again.

Hey, I'm happy with the Jags season, and I'm glad they could at least stay neck-and-neck with the Pats tonight. Their offense played well and it looks like they have their QB of the future. They need some speed at receiver, though.

As for defensively...sheesh. Tackling was not good and they didn't get a whole lot of pressure on Brady, but who does? Their O-Line is great and they have so many targets in the passing game.

I'm still pretty convinced Indy can take out the Pats, so long as they don't look past this weekend. But who knows, it's probably just hope on my part. Fuckin Brady.

Sorry guys, but nobody's gonna take out the Pats. You know, I don't think I even heard Randy Moss' name during the broadcast. Not at all. That's how goddamn good this team is. You have a guy break the all-time touchdown receptions record in the regular season, and in the first playoff game, not a peep out of him, and they still win.

On a somewhat unrelated note, you know that Verizon commercial where the guy's unplugging his Christmas decorations, and he looks really sad? That guy must be a very good actor, because when he looks sad, it makes me sad. Every damn time.

I think it was Phil Simms that noted that the Jags defense was running on fumes during the 4th quarter. They just ran out of gas in the second half.

I was expecting the Jaguars to get eaten alive by the Pats, but they hung tough for most of the game. Garrard played great and the RB's ran tough, especially Jones-Drew, who was bulldozing defenders to get extra yards. This isn't like the past few years where the Jags had a good season and fizzled in the playoffs. I think this is a major moral victory for them and I could definitely see this crew in the Super Bowl sometime in the next three years. Is it too early for me to say that next year is finally the year Jacksonville takes their division?

I can say this much, though. When this season's over, Jack Del Rio deserves an extension for ultimately cutting ties with Byron Leftwich and naming Garrard the permanent starter. That's a decision that's going to end up turning the Jags from a perennial playoff disappointment to a legit Super Bowl contender.

Brady threw only two incomplete passes in the game, and they were both dropped balls. Good lord.

Yeah, that was a sick, efficent game he was playing last night. The only thing was that was messed up about it was that he threw to everyone BUT Moss (1 catch, and that was in the first half).That killed my fantasy team since I had him as my lead reciever and was just 15 points from taking the lead.

Anyway, I just can't see the Pats losing at this point against anyone... at least not without suffering a Simpsons Springfield power plant softball team-like meltdown. And even though I'm not a Pats fan, I want to see them finish it out and stuff it to those jackass 72' Dolphins. Hopefully, Mercury Morris and his chia pet hairdo will shut up once and for all once they win the super bowl.
