Felt like by a certain point in this game, the players blew it off and gave up.  Zero desire to continue.  No effort.  Handed McD and team a victory they really didn't deserve (not like they exactly dominated).  The Pats players know certain things - they know they will get hosed on every penalty and thus need to score more to overcome it. Strip sacks? Trick plays? Mixing it up?  Bupkis....

This team needs to stop assuming it will beat other teams....every team needs to be treated with respect.  It's up to the players whether they want to stink or not during the season.  Is there pride or not?  Maybe one sign of commitment from senior management - say, signing Wilfork - would boost their spirits/jumpstart the morale.  Because right now this team doesn't give a rat's a and is mailing it in.  And Gisele the man doesn't help.
