[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Patriots vs Pittsburgh : [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Patriots vs Pittsburgh : Okay, I'll "step back from the ledge" when you can explain to me who we've beaten this year that would be concidered a "decent" team. Miami? Nope. San Diego? Nope. Dallas? Nope, and we could have lost that game also. Jets? Nope, but again, much closer than it should have been. So pray tell, what team have we beaten that was a "decent," or "good," or "better than average" team? Answer - NONE! Sure, I've had a few too many beers, but name me one positive we can take away from this game. Stop teams on 3rd and long? Nope. Offensive production against a good D? Nope. Face it, a tough loss may be a tough loss, but we've not beaten anyone of significance this year. And, given the ineptitute of our D, and our O's predictable play-calling to the point where the opponents' D looks like it knows the play better than our O, tell me where the "silver lining" is. Fact is, we need D and O coordinators, someone better at selecting draft picks, and someone - anyone - on D that sees third and long as an opportunity instead of a given for the other team. Until that happens, we'll be "okay," but not much better - but hey, if that's good enough for you, rock on with your bad self. I for one, expect a bit more out of this organization. Posted by gr82bme[/QUOTE Look around the league, pink hatter... Saints lose to the WINLESS Rams, the Ravens lost to the 1 - 5 Jax last Monday night... This is called the NFL.. did you really think every game would be a win for the Pats or the other team will not play well when they play the Pats? There is no "silver lining" if you are looking for one because there is another team on the field with the Pats. Like it or not, that other team is also trying to win the game and sometimes they do!!

I got your "pink hatter" hanging Billy. I don't expect to go 16 and 0, but I do expect to be competitive. If you want to hang on to "parity" as an excuese to not execute on either side of the ball - rock on with your bad self. I "get" we're going to lose sometime, but excuse me all to h-e-double L if I expected a better team effort, especially after a bye week.
