Fuck that guy.

We had no business winning that game in 2006. And quite frankly, I don't care if people are saying the same thing come Sunday night. Just win.

Forecast changed today from dry to snow
3-5 inches of snow possible

Good thing we're not playing the Colts

Models are in good agreement that there will be low pressure forming along the East Coast next weekend but there is a bunch of variance on the track. Either way the evolution looks kind of ugly so I wouldn't expect a big one. It's possible we see a storm but also very possible we see nothing more than cold and cirrus.

Ron Torbert is the referee for the game. As these are all-star crews, it's rare to see crews stick together. But, 3 of Tobert's regular season crew members are sticking together on his crew for Sunday.
Like you mentioned the crews get shuffled but this article summarizes penalties called by each referee's crew during the regular season. Out of 17 crews Tobert's ranked:
flags per game - 16th
roughing the passer - 10th (tied)
holding calls - 9th
pre snap - 16th
pass defense - 16th

Good to hear. Hopefully the game will be decided with the play on the field and not by anything to do with the referees.

Hilarious segment on Weather Channel just now. They picked up BB’s skepticism of weather forecasts — expressed today on ‘EEI. Played the audio. Then they showed videotape of BB pressers from 2014 to the effect that forecasts suck and he would bet against them every chance he could. Then they documented on a chart how they nailed the forecasts for the WC games

No snow for the game currently forecasted. High pressure will be in place to block the coastal storm per the the National Weather Service’s latest discussion.

Posted this in the Ticket forum but if anyone is interested, ticket prices are dropping pretty fast now on StubHub. I've been tracking them for some buddies of mine and the cost to get in has dropped $30 in two days. Price-wise, this game is going for a low end regular season price. Price should continue to go down and as of now is testing low $160s before fees to get in.

Any other NYC area SoSHers going to watch this one at Tir Na Nog/Times Square? That's the Pats Fans of NYC Club bar.

Colts fans can thank the Pats for beating the Chargers that day. No way do the Colts beat the Chargers in San Diego the next week. The Chargers always had Indy's number as proven the next year when they beat them twice. Once in the reg. season and in the playoffs, and in 08 when a 8-8 Chargers team beat a 12-4 Colts team. Manning and the Colts only have a Super Bowl title in Indy because of this game. Thank the Pats.

If New England beats LA today, it will be the first major playoff victory of a Boston team versus an LA team since like 8 weeks ago when the Red Sox won the World Series against the Dodgers.

Decent amount of bolts fans on the pats train from South Station. Thinking the numbers are disportionate to reality as this would be the easiest/cheapest way to the game from out of town.
