[QUOTE]In Response to All those complaining about the D tell me what the offense did Sunday : They won't be able to. Those are horrendous stats for a supposed all word offense off a Bye week. There's no denying it. If you showed me those stats prior to the game, I would have guessed it was the Skins offense not ours. Nice job, Evil. Contexts, facts and realities bring irrationals down a bit in the court room. The whole reason why it was even close was because of Guyton's INT.

Rusty - are you are fan on the Patriots or are you strictly a disciple of Bill Belichick?
Here are some stats, which may provide some context for a different point of view on this game:
The Patriots defense allowed 5 different drives of 10+ plays or more
The Patriots defense allowed the Steelers to be on the field for 33:44 in the first 3 quarters
The Patriots allowed 3 rd down conversions of 3/11, 3/15, and 3rd and 12 to sustain 3 seperate scoring drives
The Patriots offense did not turn the ball over
Tom Brady's passer rating for the game was 101.8
I'll be the first one to say that the Patriots did not look good on offense Sunday - but the defense was simply abysmal - I had very difficult time watching that unfold - they were truly terrible - the number of times Roethlisberger was throwing to WIDE OPEN receivers was mind boggling
Rusty - your sticking up for the D really smacks of nothing more than being a mindless shill for Bill Belichick -
Rusty - you've been harping on Tom Brady a lot this year - if he is accountable - and I think he certainly was for the Buffalo game, and he didn't have a great game against the Steelers - then BB has to be accountable too
BB needs some help - he needs to recruit a legitimate offensive and defensive coordinator - he is trying to do too much himself - and like most people who try that in leadership - is spreading himself way too thin and the details are getting missed
Rusty - I am not an overreactionary who is calling for BB firing - but would it hurt you to admit he is not perfect and has made some mistakes this year - and in the last few when it comes to not getting legitimate coordinators?
