Bleacher Report: New England Patriots: This One Hurts Even More Than Last Time

This one hurts more than 2008.  That team played in the wake of the Spy Gate revelation.  They annihilated almost everyone.  Everyone rooted for them to lose.  And on the biggest stage, they complied, underperforming and allowing an overachieving Giants team to win an improbable victory.

This team on the other hand, showed grit, a lot of appealing overachieving players and a cause in the collective grieving for Myra H. Kraft.  Despite mediocre stats, they hung together and just kept winning, defying critics who dismissed them as Brady and Co., and who kept waiting for their defense to collapse in the clutch.
