were not physical. He said that everyone talked about how he and Muhammad would get pushed around and that they didn't play physical at all.

He also said Poole spit in his face.

Just another classless player.

I HATE the patriots.

The Patriots played dirty all night. I wouldn't be surprised to see the NFL pass out some fines later for things they did after the whistle blew.

I saw Bruschi throw a punch after the whistle was blown. I thought you were supposed to be kicked out for actions such as that? The refs had to have seen it seeing how they were standing right behind him when it happened. I don't think this should be used as an excuse for them winning but really, with all the penalties being called, they should have been consistant there as well.

Just another example of the league looking the other way. They'll apologize later and maybe fine some folks...regardless...where's the trophy going?

The Patriots were blessed this season and look to only improve next year. All the while we still have Wanny. I REALLY hope this guy experiences some kind of epiphony (sp) and learns how to be calm and in control during a game. That's what really scares me about Wanny....stresses out too easily and loses the tactical picture.

Yea i saw the ref looking straight at PATRIOT players taking shots at the ballcarrier after the whistle, absolutely ridiculous, i never bought into the garbage that the refs want the pats, but that kind of event makes me ponder hte possibility...

the league may not help the patriots, but they certainly don't hurt them, and with 2 #1's and 2 #2's, these f-ers might be starting a dynasty. it's up to the finz to save nfl mankind from patriot domination:rolleyes:

I hate the patriots as much as any one else in here but they got screwed with that fumble it was a fumble and should have been called one. That being said Brady was not the MVP and was not even the best qb in the game he almost cost them the game throwing that int and then recieved a gift from god with that freakin kickoff. Delhomme had like 40 less yards and no int's. I think vrabel should have gotten mvp with his 2 sacks a forced fumble and a touchdown he was the real mvp.

The game looked consistently called to me. There won't be any fines handed down.
Carolina played some dirty football throughout the playoffs, so seeing the Pats play basically the same was refreshing.

Patriots offence of all things impressed me the most. On defense, they were uncharacteristically "awful" blowing coverages repeatedly. Letting an offense like Carolina score that many points against you is embarrassing.

I just hope the Phin's become players again in the playoffs. We're so close -/

my beef is not so much with the Pats as the league... the players will do what they can get away with. and the Pats are allowed to get away with more than other teams, it seems. Vinatieri's hit out of bounds in the 4th after a kickoff and the flag being picked up is an example... but the biggest thing to me, is that they absolutely never get called for holding. and at times it is just blatant. it was even more so against the Colts, but there were numerous examples last night as well. i dont think they were called for holding more than once in the playoffs. that is simply not possible.

I agree on the officiating.

They didn't let that physical play all year, then come the playoffs, and they turned a blind eye. Be consistent is all anyone good ask.

Hate to disagree w/ almost everyone in this thread...but....the Pats won because...well..they are F**king GOOD.

How about we pick up and learn from the short controlled passing attack, smart personnel moves and outstanding coaching?

In fact, I'm willing to "learn" from the Cats..who I think probably outplayed the Pats and certainly have accomplished more in the last 2 years then just about anyone in football.

No more..."lucky" crap...or "the refs are unfair" BS. Call a spade a spade...the Pats OWN, not only the AFCE, but the F**king NFL.

Now, excuse me while I puke....and pray for next season.

Patriots could have easily lost alot of games they won this year dont expect them to get all the breaks again. They are a great team and maybe even a dynasty for this day in age. but by no means are they one of the great teams of all time. they couldnt beat the cowboys of the ninties the niners of the eighties the steelers of the seventies or the greatest dynasty of all time the first team to go to 3 consecutive superbowls and not only go to 3 in a row but also win 2 back to back.
the only other team to go to at least 3 in a row is buffalo and they didnt even win one.
also their is not one great team in the league right now not one complete team i guess the closest is the patsies however their are a few teams that are close to being a complete team like the chiefs who need some defense the colts who need defense and of course the closest of all who really dont need that much help the DOLPHINS BABY
all we need is a couple o lineman and a qb who doesnt have a wet noodle for an arm and were in baby yeah go MIAMI 2004
dont forget patriot fans you barely beat miami this year if mare makes his chip shot field goal which he usually does you go home. and you couldnt even score a touchdown on us at home with your offense you squeeked that one out cause we have a crappy qb you won those games but you could've just as easily have lost them. you did not dominate by any means. which means your beatable. but i give credit where credit is due and the patsies deserve it. enjoy it while it lasts
