[QUOTE]"Brady has no excuse to fail in the postseason now" Poor Russ , you just dont get it do you. You should be referring to the defensive help we have now and the fact we may be better than 31st next year... What difference does it make how many scrub WR's are invited to camp. You are only gonna keep 5 or 6 of them anyway and only a few are gonna be on the field at a time. How about hoping Jones and Bequette and Hightower and Fanene and Wilson can help us get a 3 and out once in a while to give Brady the ball back instead of him getting cold on the bench while the defense lets the opposition slowly march down the field and waste the clock???? Get a Clue Buddy

Oh, I get it. Our D was "ranked" 31st yet totally outplayed our "2nd ranked" offense in the postseason.
So much for rankings, eh?
In the last 2 SBs, our all world offense has combined for 31 points. If they had just scored 25+ points in either game, we win at least 1 SB.
This is not a defensive era, but an offensive era, yet your arrogance (and others') wants to put more of the onus on the D? lol
Yes, let's ask for more from a young, inexperienced D over a veteran, all world offense and pretend that makes sense.
NE's 3rd down D was fine before Carter went down. That had no real bearing on having a 17-15 lead in the SB and our QB taking a Safety earlier, a moronic INT and our hold out WR dropping a game icing catch. NO BEARING.
The 3 majorly flawed plays on offense in that game led to the loss, not the D's inability to force a 3rd down. Now, if the D allowed TDs instead of FGs, you'd be correct. But, that wasn't the case. If the gameplan was to cover a myriad of explosive options and hold them down, to avoid giving up the big play, my oh my did it work to a T. Superb job even without forcing 1 3 and out.
Too bad Brady and Co couldn't have held up their end of the bargain.
