Big thing to watch out for is when using the "best available" option, it'll often times land in the club level, which is generally too rich for my blood. It's kind of a pita when you're trying to hurry through an order. But if you're looking at aftermarket tickets anyway, original club level prices might not seem so bad.
Then back in 2006 (for the Pats, before I had season tix) I found two single-seat tickets that were one-behind the other. That worked out pretty well. I think their system might be better at packaging those as a "pair" nowadays though.
I think I'm just going to wait until after the weekend, and try the ticketmaster route as you say. Hopefully the flight prices don't go through the roof by then....if they do, then I'm screwed and oh well.
Hmm, now I just wonder when the tickets will go on sale!
