We're on to Pittsburgh.
Don't get me wrong, I hate seeing my teams lose. But there are two things I absolutely live for after a disappointing loss: the Bill Belichick post-game press conference, and beating the piss out of the sorry suckers that happen to play the Pats the following week.
Belichick's postgame with the press was on for the ages. While we didn't get any soundbites as good as "We're on to Cincinnati", he did give us something almost as good, deafening silence. One ambitious reporter asked the coach if he thought they might have been looking past Miami at the next game on their schedule, instead of focusing on the Dolphins. Belichick shook the question off with such disdain you would've thought the reporter asked if Bill thought the Dolphin's used voodoo magic to win the game. He responded with 10 seconds of silence before asking the room of reporters if anyone actually had any questions about the game. Classic Bill, but the only person more pissed off than Belichick after any loss, is Tom Brady.
Activate angry Brady mode!
Since 2001, The Patriots are 40-11 in games following a loss. The last time they lost back to back game was the end of the 2015 regular season, and it's only happened seven other times in 17 seasons. Only once have they lost more than 2 in a row in the Brady-Belichick era, when they went on a four game skid in 2002, their down year sandwiched in between three Superbowl titles.
Every time Brady falls, he picks himself right back up by his own bootstraps ready to strike down the next opponent he faces with fiery vengeance.
I'll tell you one thing for sure, next Sunday is gonna be a bad day to be a Steeler.
