are not going to lose this Game. "It’s an emotional game,"
Brady said. "So I think I got a penalty in 2002. I think I only got one penalty for an unsportsmanlike conduct and I kind of pushed someone back against Chicago. That might be my only unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Probably deserved a few
more. But that was the only one that I got called for." This is going
to be one of the most emotional games for the Pats in a long time.
Patriot Veterans are still not over Super Bowl Lii (that's right I'm
pronouncing it Lee;). "It’s a different team. It’s a big challenge for us to go in there and play a great football
team. So there’s nothing about that game (Super Lii) that’s going to... you
know..." Brady stammers through the memory of Lii, "... that’s not going to impact the outcome of this one. We want to
win. They want to win. It’s a big game. It’s a tough game.
"They play well at home and they’ve got a really good team and they’re tough to beat. They’re good in all three phases and they’ve been a championship-level team the last couple years. So, it’s going to be a great test for us."
And he is not alone in the painful memory of the Malcolm Butler Super
last week, and they never lose two games in a row in November and
December. "Yeah, I think any time you play in that game..."
Devin McCourty stammered "...I still remember [Super Bowl] XLVI when we lost to the Giants, still remember when I lost the state championship when I was 12. You don’t forget any time you play for a championship and you don’t win it. It’s just something that sticks with you. You always want plays back; you want to do things differently. It doesn’t control your day-to-day, but you always think about it."
The Pats had this game circled for a long time.
going to be another rough and tough game like they had against Baltimore.
"I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s going to be an advantage, but it’s something that we can look
at," Jason McCourty said calmly (he didn't player in Lii;). "Like I said, they have some similar players from when we played them a few years ago. Just look at it a little bit, but you have to watch the tape from this year. They have some new guys out there playing. They’re a good football team. It’s going to be a great challenge for us."
So we add
some revenge, pain, and scars to this games equation. "You assume I'm
over it? Come on now," Brady said on 'EEI. "That's a lot of
mental scar tissue from that year. They deserved it. And now a couple
years later, we get a chance to play the organization again. Huge game for
us. Big game for them. The better team is going to win." Do
you think Belichick remembers the Super Bowl Loss were he was the most
criticized for his coaching decision to bench their best CB?
any loss that keep him up more at night? "I think you remember those
games. I mean, I remember games I lost in high school. I remember games I
lost in peewee football. I remember games I lost at the Giants and
said, and then starting stammering. "And
I mean... yeah... those games... (that f-ing game!) Sure.... They stick
with you. I mean... you remember some of the wins. But I think the losses
stick with you more." Pain and defeat can be the best
is true for most of the coaches and players. "It
was heartbreak," Duron Harmon said. "It's the Super Bowl. It’s
the last game. Obviously how we lost.... (It came) down to the wire. Great
game all the way. It was a tough pill to swallow."
Aaaahhh... the sweet taste of revenge,
what is on the line this week in Philly. "All
I’m really focused on trying to beat the Eagles. That intrigues me a lot
right there, is just trying to get our team as well-prepared as possible
to go down and play a good football team that’s playing very well, that
obviously we didn’t do very well against the last time we played them in
a competitive situation. So, that’s really what I’m focused the most
on. Not last night’s game, last week’s game, something that happened
five years ago, something that happened 10 years ago. I mean, I don’t
really think that’s that relevant." And this is the game where
revenge will play a big role.
Eagles are run first play action second team. The Patriots defense has to
be tougher at every point than they were against the Ravens. But the
Eagles don't run that wacky option scheme with that wacky running QB. They
run a basic NFL Offense. So you have to beat them physically or they will
pound you to death.
Pats D has to out physical the Ravens... I mean the Eagles, in the
trenches. That won't be a problem. When you add in the the extra motivate
of the revenge, and the embarrassment of the Ravens game? And a Defense
that desperately wants to be the number one defense in the NFL

“Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad,”
wrote (LIED). “She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. it is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.”
Marie L. Yovanovitch recounted in powerful and personal terms on Friday the devastation and fear she felt as she was targeted first by President Trump’s allies and later by the president himself, saying she felt threatened.
Removed from her post as ambassador to Ukraine, Ms. Yovanovitch said she was bereft when she came under fire from the president’s personal attorney and eldest son last spring, but was even more stunned in September when she learned that Mr. Trump himself had disparaged her in his now-famous July 25 phone call with Ukraine’s president.
“It was a terrible moment,” she told the House Intelligence Committee on the second day of public impeachment hearings. “A person who saw me actually reading the transcript said that the color drained from my face. I think I even had a physical reaction. I think, you know, even now, words kind of fail me.”
