Heck of a job by Bill, his assistant coaches and all the players.

Unreal to be 10-6 after last season. The QB is in place, some great FA picks up and draftees, the future is bright. Too early maybe for a SB run but if we win in Miami next week we'll have momentum.

Just to be in the playoffs is huge.

The question is , has this team developed the maturity to handle a play off run ?.We certainly have the talent , no one questions that.But as we all know , talented teams sometimes crumble under the stress of post season.In the past we had old man Brady , the vitual " been there , done that " guy to calm the troops but without a pool of vetern leadership it will be interesting to see how we handle it.I am optimistic about or chances but even more so of a future with Mac at the wheel.

We have old man Belichick. I'll take him.

Just like to point out that it's quite posible to lose without "crumblimg under the pressure"

I got out of the fortune telling business quite a while ago. I'm very happy that they made the playoffs
Just want to take it one game at a time.
Next up, the Fins.

Well obviously , we could just play terribly as other parts of the season which does'nt speak at all toward the difference of post season mentality vs regular season 🤔

Yeah, sometimes the other team is better. That's why they keep score, even. :coffee:
