In response to coolade2's comment:
The patriots reliance on small recievers has caused their offense to sputter in the playoffs. Mazz listed all the leading receivers in recent years. All big and 1 year it was a tight end. Last year it was Boldin.
This isn't rocket science. There is less room to throw the ball in the playoffs . The defenses are better AND the referees tend to let the grabbing go to an extent.
THEREFORE you need bigger targets that will fight for the ball in the air. AKA a guy like Quentin Sims who was on the practice squad for a while and has since disappeared(inexplicably)in favor of AUSTIN frickn COLLIE.
Anybody else feeling this...?
No. That is a brady apologist deluxe premise. Patten, brown, branch amd givens were not big. bald and high pitched mazz exposed.
That is just excuse rolodex city. Moss was big and we lost sb 42. Hernandez played in sb 46.
Brady has never had tall receivers outside of moss akd now dobson at 6'3.
Well say what you want about Givens (who had decent size), Branch, Brown, Patten, but if we have those guys right now, we'd win the Super Bowl this year (well except for the fact that the defense hasn't been rebuilt in the last five years, but who's counting?).
I'm kind of amazed at just how ill informed you are regarding football...are you this bad at cvs?
