In response to bredbru's comment:
if you know football well pray tell, i think you will understand what im talking about.
no one other non coaching factor was more responsible in determining who won this game.
I would agree the play calling at times was strange and the use of personel on offense even stranger.
That being said the D at some point has to make a stop. They gave up 500 yards in offense, had 0 sacks and didn't have 1 qb pressure.
everything i read so far in this thread is true, but none of these reasons were more responsible than the coaches calls durign the game (just like the cardsgame ).
the sad thing is bb doesnt know, doesnt care or is powerless to do anythign about it, like he has been with obrian.
its my take, bb values his emotional comfort level with coaches and players (his personal level of security) over skill. therefore he overvalues some players (ie devin hugely over-valued, mayo a good player but paid like an elite lb - over-valued) and using coaches who dont have his gravitas instead of getting the best coaches possible (which the premiere elite team in the leagee should have). if bb didnt have this issue, with brady and what we have alone, we would be on our way to another afc championship game and would likely have won 1 or 2 of the giant sb games.
its a little saddening (of what could have been, ie a legacy unmatched in the nfl)
thanks for the read and any thougths.
