    Catch seals it.....

     



    Simply ignorant take on the play. Tom threw a perfect pass and the D was better and knocked the ball up and out of his hands. Thats NOT A DROP. A drop is an uncontested failure to catch the ball with no real physical influence on the ability to make the catch by the defender. You may want to watch more games or review some Welker replays. That would help. Again, give some credit when the defense makes a good play. Ignore those here who pretend to know how hard it is to catch the ball when a defender makes a good play. It is different than getting both hands on the ball and dropping it with nobody around. Thats a drop. This one was merely a good D play and incompletion. That play deserves credit for what it was, a great play by the DB. .

    Re: Amendola drop costs game - he is Welker

    Belichick said in his comments that they didn't make enough plays in any of the 3 phases of the game. This is true, and why they lost. Defense played great until the last drive of the first half, but couldn't make a stop (multiple times). Kicking game missed a fg and kicked off out of bounds, both critical mistakes. And the offense went through a long stretch where they didn't do anything, going from 10-0 up to 17-10 down in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Most of you will blame that on the defense, but the offense had issues as well. They need to find a way to score TDs, not kick FGs...

    MCDaniels cost us the game, not running it near the goal line and with the play calling at the end.

    3 and 1 near the goal and he is in shot gun ? so we settle for a fg

    - maybe with gronk

    are you serious... amendola's drop? if he caught that ball, that would have been AMAZING.

    here's something to think of... that 4th & 8 catch where he got CLOCKED, I said i bet Welker would've dropped that.

    cant blame a drop on great coverage as he's getting hit trying to bring it in. BOyce had drops, those are drops

    Had it in his hands.  Should have tucked it.

    [/QUOTE]

    yeah tucked it into the defenders helmet? dude, that was a tough play.

    Why don't you ignorant hicks ever blame Brady for throwing a bad pass.  It was high, hot, and outside...not many receivers could have caught the ball very many times.  Yall are a bunch of losers that over analyze every play and then make excuses.

    [/QUOTE]


    That pass to Amendola was in the spot you need to throw it in to avoid INT's. Amendola just sucks and good WR's that make less than him would have strong hands to pull that in. Like any QB Brady will make bad throws and have aveage games by his means. Lack of WR talent and 3rd string tackles blocking will do that.

    The defender knocked it out but that shouldn't have been a  snow cone type of catch. He should have easily had both hands on it and been able to tuck it before Thomas had a chance to knock it out. Don't forget he dropped another ball earlier in the drive too. But in the end the D couldn't hold a 4th and 5 so just like the SB's with less than 3 mins and the lead the D couldn't make one last stop which cost the game

    Will give that DB credit on making a great play on that indefensibleball. Good WR's pull that in though to prevent kncok down.

    The real problem is the injuries.  We do not have enough big receivers right now to be a serious threat in the passing game in the redzone.  Got to hope that Thompkins and Dobson get back on the field, because we need those guys along with Hoomanawanui when we get near the goal line.  The defense has been decimated for weeks.  Now the offense is looking just as thin.

    I would say Boyce's drop in the endzone that hit him squarely was more of a failure.. That could have changed the landscape of the game.

    The defender knocked it out of his hands and made a play, very different than Welker's drop.

    So, it wasn't a drop and this is an outright troll thread?  Not surprising considering the troll work of this troll in recent days.

    Again go watchmthe game before you call anyone a troll or interject ... it just makes you look bad man.  Can say I didn't watch the game but then take sides.

    Re: Amendola drop costs game - he is Welker

    I don't blame Welker on that catch since it would have took amazing body balance just to be in position to get his hands on it whcih he did. I think WR's should catch most passes thrown their way. Good WR's make clutch catches which in that play showed me Amendola isn't clutch in big situations when getting a perfectly thrown ball. Brady isn't perfect but he's among the best ever and has shown ability to make mediocre to bad WR's better than they really are. Brady has made Dobson look like a WR when he clearly didn't belong starting the first 8 games of the year running the wrong routes and dropping easy balls. Anybody that makes Reche "Eyes" Caldwell catch 60 passes in a season and carrys a team with Reche as a number 1 WR to plays away from a Superbowl birth gets my respect and pass on a couple average to bad games.

    Tough play but he could have turned his body after catching the ball to tuck it away. He was in the air which allowed him to use his body to turn and shield the ball after securing it.

    Agreed.  Would have liked to see Develin and the power game down by the goal line.

    No drop. Amendola did make the catch. Defender knocked it out of his hands

    It's a tough catch but the bobble allowed the defender to strip it. So little margin for error. Ghost missing a FG kicking the ball out of bounds, d can't stop nobody when it matters. Receivers dropping balls ( Boyce) they need Tompkins or Dobson back just for the height that is needed in the red zone. If ghost doesn't kick the ball out Miami doesn't get brave going for it on forth down. Not blaming him for this is on the D.

    Boyce droped a TD.. that was more of a drop then DA's drop.  Would have changed the game there..
