2005 AFC Divisional playoff New England Patriots at Denver Broncos complete game (by dipsomaniac1976) A little Friday Patriots viewing if you’re feeling up for the original Tom Brady/Bill Belichick playoff loss. In many ways I think this game was one of the initial sparks for this blog. It was after this loss that I realized Brady/Belichick only had a finite number of shots at another Lombardi. Winning Super Bowls brings people on the bandwagon, but losing when you know you have all the pieces to win brings out the obsession. Hard to say the 2005 Patriots deserved to win a Super Bowl though. Along with 2009 and 2002, it made up the holy triumvirate of ****** Patriots seasons. Still think 2009 takes the cake, but 2005 was just a sloppy mess from the moment Chad Brown and Monty Beisel were our starting inside linebackers.
