    Absolutely love reading Prolate and zbellino's posts. Each one is thoughtful, insightful, well written, and thought provoking. It's clear that both have a strong understanding of the game of football, and they're in a select minority here who seem to understand that football is indeed a team game; they don't blame a philosophical approach, or one particular player. Rather, they look at the whole picture, attempt (to the best of their ability) to analyze what happened, and determine why we won or lost.

    Objective, intelligent, thoughtful.... doesn't get much better than that. Two guys I'd love to have a beer (or a coffee) with and talk Pats football

    Thanks dreighver.  You're relatively new to the board, but I've noticed a bunch of your posts as really good ones too. Nice to have you here.

    The flaws with them, which really compromises what you  just said, is they think Brady can do no wrong and they transpose his flaws and poor play recently over to the younger and inexperienced defense.

     

     

    I've said it many times..They are clearly intelligent people, which is why they're refusal to admit Brady has let our team down as much any player on our team lately, is so annoying. They just gloss right over it and then scapegoat others, eventually putting it on BB's plate as if BB can control Brady's in-play QB moves or passes or Welker's drops.

    It's just bizarre to see two intelligent people sort of not care why this continues to happen. 

    Then, a troll like Gunty whips in and sees an angle and says something like "my D played great!  You just can't admit the other team played well!"

    Well, no, Gunty, our own team, our own offense literally choked on slam dunk, EASY plays which let your overrated SB winning teams off the hook.  

     



    I disagree Rusty. I think Prolate ZB tend to acquit Brady of any fault, because as of late, he hasn't been deserving of any significant blame.

     

    I understand that statistically speaking, and as far as the eye-test goes, Brady's play has dropped off in the playoffs. I will grant you that. With that said, I feel confident saying (although I haven't looked at the statistics myself) that this is the case for most quarterbacks in the NFL. When the playoffs begins, nerves kick in, and as a result players drop more passes, timing is thrown off, and you begin to play better defenses in an environment and under circumstances that lend themself to defensive football. Naturally, offensive production drops, and the production of the quarterbacks drop as well.

    To win in the playoffs, and this has been demonstrated time and time again, you need to have a strong defense, and perhaps more importantly, a defense which can force turnovers in big games, and bow their necks in crunch time. Unfortunately, recent iterations of the Patriots' defense has failed to do this. They're wonderful at forcing turnovers in the regular season, but when the playoffs kick in, they seem to lose their magic touch. 

     




     

    That's fair except they really don't say that Brady must improve. They just gloss over it.  They want to focus more on 1st or 2nd year players on D who just graduated college.

    Brady's 2011 AFC title game or SB 46 isn't enough for him to get some blame? How does that make sense? BY his own admittance, he said he sucked and then he made colossal errors in the 4th qtr in two crucial spots that were actually easy decisions not to make or being somewhat lazy on a throw to Welker.

    As for the D, Spikes picked Flacco in 2011 and that should have pretty much been the game, but what did Brady do on 1st down?  An INT! 

    Last year, I think we all can agree if Talib and Jones are there, that game is clearly going to be closer and we might win it.

    Our D is strong and getting stronger and deeper in every year since BB started the rebuild with youth into the lockout in 2010.  What hasn't happened is Brady is not shedding his repeated mistakes and flaws as a QB.

    The D is trending up and quick and the offense, led by Brady, not so much.  Offense wins championships in Goodell's era. Sound, balanced, smart offense.

    [/QUOTE]

    I don't think Brady is perfect Rusty.  I just think that there are lots of other (and far more significant) reasons for the playoff losses.

    show me any post where i judged someone based on their job? their education level? age?

    show me where i have been banned a dozen times- show me where i routinely engage in name calling, personal attacks and a consistent condescending nature- show me where i boast of my supposed 152 IQ, my paycheck and my overall "superior" abilitiy to think

    and really what kind of a person would have a problem with a thread celebrating a coach fightng cancer and his team rallying around him by saying "stop trolling, this doesn't belong here"

     



    It's my thread and I asked the question what poster from this forum is most like you.  You posted about rusty. I realize you were responding to prolate and I was just having fun with you. This was supposed to be a feel good thread. So be good.

    Get out your toolbox. Troy Brown should be up on that mountain before Stanley Morgan and I loved Morgan.

     

     

    Either Brown or Matt Light.  You don't protect Brady's blindside that well for 12 years, go to 5 SBs, win 3 and not outdo Stanley Morgan's accomplishments.

    Add another face!  Add Troy Brown!

    Z requested this photoshop in the mt rushmore thread but that thread has pretty much died.  When I seen that he mentioned it here in this thread I posted it here for him so he would get it, just in case he didn't check the other thread again.  If people have a request, I like to try and do it for them.

    Living somewhere where there aren't many Pats fans its nice to come on here and be part of the community. I enjoy reading everyones posts on here and I feel like I get a lot better insight from all you posters about the Pats, as compared to reading any sort of columns from writers and such. It is amazing to see the level of football intellegince on here even though not everyone agrees all the time. It's always a fun read. I know a lot about football, having played it growing up, but I do not know near enough about the NFL as most of you. It helps me keep a good tab on the Pats everyday, even though I'm so far away! Keep it up!

After reading Sask post it does give me hope we can bring in some new perspective instead of scaring it away. Sask, please post more it's always fun to have someone post more often with a different perspective. Doesn't matter how much football knowledge you have it's always fun to debate with people. I mean look at Pro, he really knows nothing about footbll and we love him anyways (he tries). J/k Pro, you know more than I do

    I've been racking my brain trying to figure out who you are most like TBF12 and I can't do it. You are way out there. You are on an island all by yourself. :) You are what makes this a fun place to come to.


    By the way, I agree wholly with you about losing Wes Welker. He was an important part of the team that can't be replaced. We may not know the whole story but it appears the Patriots dropped the ball, not Wes.
