In response to brazilnut's comment:
Awesome is right. As long as Mcdaniels,can keep up the good play calling and not force things. He needs to continue to keep it basic and simple. We are good enough so we do not need to run any gimmick plays. I believe this defense is going to pretty good also by end of year. We will peaking at the right time.
Your assuming a lot here, what happens when the exalted one benches Ridley for his fumble? Or takes Welker out of the offense because of the "joke' . Or trades Spikes because of his tweet. Or has so little faith in his defense that instead of punting and at least make Manning start from the 20 yard line, goes for it yet again, with a lead this time,
and Brady gets sacked, almost bent in two. They won't run the table, they will be lucky to win the AFC.
Ridley will fumble , why because he runs hard, BB wants runners like the Law Firm, guys who put two arms around the ball, you try running hard with both arms wrapped around the ball, it restricts your ability to balance for cuts, can't do it. this guy is a stud running back, may be the Patriots best ever, given the opportunity. he never should have been benched in last years super bowl, what because he's human and fumbled? Even the great Jim Brown fumbled once and a while. BB probably would have benched Jim Brown.
Willis Mc Gahee doesn't fumble on the ten yard line for the Broncos, then Manning wins that game, or at least the exalted one sweats big time.
How come guys like Mc Courty can stink up the place , give up touchdowns, and Ridley gets benched for a fumble when the whole defense is trying to strip the ball from him when his is running his butt off in traffic. BB is a flawed personality, he wins because he is a great coach, his worst enemy is the other BB, the one would lets his arrogance get in the way. Whether it's his stubborness on draft day, or his penchant for benching players who make the slightest mistake.
They'll get to the trough, but BB will blow it with his inconsistent , arrogant decision making, write it down. The only thing Belichick has to fear, is Belichick, his arrogance is in a class all by itself. Brady should have at least 5 super bowl rings, there is only one reason he doesn't have them and it's name is Belichick.
re: "They won't run the table, they will be lucky to win the AFC. "
i disagree, but the gist of what you say thereafter is basically true. bbs personality (and shortcomings there) do hinder the overlall product at times in different ways. one area it is dramatic imo. is who he is comfortable having as coaches on his team. the best in the league vs who he can tolerate.
