5. Perspective

Okay, let’s take a step back, and put this into perspective for a second.

Was this an awful loss? Yes. Did the Patriots look like absolute crap? Yes. Do they have a lot of problems that must be fixed? You bet they do.

But you know what? They are going to get through this. I am not saying right now that they will win the Super Bowl. In fact, they are a long way from doing that. But a team this talented will not let their season go down the gutter that easily. They have a lot of quality players on defense, and if Bill Belichick can ever figure out a way to use them correctly, they will become a solid unit.

And of course, we can’t forget about Tom Brady. The Pats have one of the best quarterbacks of all-time on their side, and not only that, they have one of the best fighters the NFL has ever seen leading their squad. Brady is not going to give up. He is going to do his best to get his team off the ground, and lead them to a win next week against the Bengals.

One step at a time. The Pats aren’t dead.
