[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Can we be Honest and Say who the Lost Ultimately Falls on : Does BB, a defensive coach, micromanage Charlie Weis? If that answer is no, which I know it is, then why would he hire and then micromanage McDaniels or O'Brien? He wouldn't. They're hired with the title for a reason. Sure, he might bring them along slowly before giving full power, but they're hired for a reason. So, I am complaining basically about the hire and his lack of interevening when he needed to, I suppose. We always hear BB talking to his defense, right? We hear clips RIGHT NOW on 98.5 which showcases BB speaking to the D. WE NEVER SEE BB TALKING TO THE OFFENSE OR O LINE. BB is not an offensive coach. He's deferring to much to Brady to make final choices. Yes, that is my premise. I disagree with that and so, yes, I do put blame with BB on that. If this is not the case, which it may not be, then we have a simple ideological failure on offense via BB, a defensive minded coach, which would mean we need a Charlie Weis in here or a mature McDaniels who is not going to treat Brady like a buddy. O'Brien didn't succeed, overall. 2009, no big deal. He was learning. 2010, great job until the playoff game. Most of this year, AFC title game and SB = Fail I can just see now, after the AFC Title game in 2007 or this year and it's probably almost the same conversation, something like this going down: Tom Brady - "Just give me another chance to make it right. I know I was bad in the AFC title game, but I know if I just try harder and we execute better, I can be a better QB and win the game with a pass based gameplan." We saw Brady tell Kraft "I'll be better in the SB". But, he wasn't, YET again with a lead, a horrendous INT and 40+ passes. How much evidence do we need here?

He wasn't better????
He completed 16 straight passes with 2 tds during that run. How is that not better?
"horrendous int" ??? He had a 6ft 6 90 catch TE with 27 tds in his 1st 2 years down field with a fuking DE/LB on him....How the heck is that a horrendous int?
I just heard Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan( 2 of the best) slam all fans and media who say that was a bad decision. They said they would "make that throw a 1000 out of a 1000 times"
The only part that upsets me about our team is we don't run the ball enough, period. Especially when Brady clearly aggravates his previously sprained left shoulder and we still throw with a lead as much as we did.(Game plan and coaching staffs fault not the QB)
The Giants won because they ran the ball with there lead back 7 times more then we did for less effective yardage. It didn't matter they weren't running as well because they won T.O.P by doing it, and got the ball in the end because of it.
Watch the end of the 3rd qtr and all of the 4rth. we go 3 n out with heavy pass offense. The Giants ran the ball 4 straight times in the 4rth and played the clock perfectly( btw those runs didn't end up in great yardage but they did it anyway)
Brady played a great game as did our defense. Our predictable one trick offense was eventually slowed to a halt.....just like it has been in every big game since 07.
