It was a tough loss. But please don't fall from the roof of your houses just yet.
S##t happens. And please, don't try to over analyze why we lost. It meant to be.
It is what it is. No time for blame games. Look at the bright side. Big Ben
still keeps true to his progression. During the regular season I predicted
playoffs loss as per Big Ben's cycles.
So here it is once again:
2004 Playoffs loss
2005 SB win
2006 No Playoffs
2007 Playoffs loss
2008 SB win
2009 No Playoffs
2010 Playoffs loss
2011 --> hopefully SB win
See, its Big Ben's cycles. And nothing can be about it. Besides, Take a lesson
from John Elway. He lost his first 3 trips to SB and won the last 2 trips. So,
Elway visited the playing grounds of Superbowl 5 times. Big Ben is not 30 yet.
So plenty of times to repeat in SB wins, hopefully.
Another bright side would be, next year (if there will be a next year) our
offensive line would be better as we'll get Pouncey's brother. Our wide
receivers will be more mature etc. etc.
The third bright side is - our team wasn't blown out in the Superbowl as many
teams do. We had a strong and resilient team this year.
So please, with sugar on top, don't jump from the roof just yet.
With best regards,
