New England Patriots captain and special teams ace Matthew Slater had a message for fans ahead of the team’s season finale.

The Patriots are 6-9 and they’re out of playoff contention. It has been a strange year for the team, which is so accustomed to winning games and making the playoffs. With that hanging over Slater, he wanted to apologize to Patriots fans.

“I know that a lot of you are disappointed in the season that we had, just as much as we are. We’re sorry we didn’t represent ourselves in a better way in terms of wins and losses,” Slater said Wednesday. “There’s never going to be a moment in time where we settle for this type of season, this type of outing. Like I said, the leadership we have here is always going to push this organization to be great, and to be great in all areas. That’s not going to change Sunday, and that’s not going to change moving forward.

“So stick with us. I know the demands are high, as they should be, and that’s why we love you guys so much. But stick with us, and we’ll keep fighting.”
