In response to AZPAT's comment:
OMG!!!!! ROFLMFAO!!!! Go ahead and excuse the last two games away as being "screwed". There is absolutely NO FREAKIN' WAY tha Pats should EVER score 18 points at home vs the Cardinals! Sunday? Too many lost opportunities in that game. Then, the offense rolled over and died after the first 50 seconds Sunday, when they attained their 9 point lead. A few more 1st downs, if not a score, and they win that game. Ray Lewis, incited by that bogus 15 yd bench penalty WILLED that team to win. That was the Pats's 2011 DFL version of defense gakking it up with under 2 minutes left. That game never should have come down to a FG attempt.
If they lose this week, what will your excuse(s) be? The sub refs are gone.... Hernandez is out, the D is still DFL...... Sorry, gang, but this team does not have the ability (maybe "desire"?) to just turn it on and off anymore. The league has caught up to them. There is absolutely NOITHING that this squad offers that scares other teams. They play to "stay close late in teh game", and have a great shot of pulling an upset. Hmmm.... it's getting to be common place, so maybe "upset" is no longer valid. They have to get attitude back and SHOW us something, starting Sunday.
THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS YEAR'S TEAM AND TEH 2001 AND 2003 TEAMS IS THE DEFENSE. THEY HAD IT BACK THEN, DOESN'T EXIST NOW.
But, you go on ahead and keep deluding yourself. As with a liar, soon you'll be believing your own drivel. Then, the fall will be REALLY hard. Reality sux after a while.
agree with some points. I think our offense can potentially scare people again, but a couple of things need to happen. Our OL needs to come together quickly. In addition, BB needs to pick Ridley as the #1 RB w/ spells from Vereen and Woody. McD needs to get his shyt together and be less predictable.
Defensively, is the tough one. If Jones is shut out, we are screwed. Not concerned about our Run D...but we need someone on the other side who can get pressure on the opposing QB. It's the only way for us to mask our secondary problems.
Peeps are gonna freak if one would suggest trading Brady for a shutdown CB in his prime, a stud LT and let Mallet take over....lol
