In response to yakv's comment:
As much as i love the team , every year the same old outcome , whether its the AFC championship game , divisonal round SB .
something is go to give , rusty will come and bash brady all day he had his miscues missing some passes and throwing a couple of errant ones over all he played a good game not his best but a good game where the OL was under pressure all day he was sacked twice in critical situations and hurried and hit while manning had all day .
The Issues that have to be fixed :
1. DE - Can we blitz at all
2. OL -A center is needed , wendel gets over powerd against the bigger DT .
Mankins - over paid and gets beat too much ,can we contain a 3 man rush ??
3. solder whiffs a lot of tackles .
4. Blount is great against medicore and poor run defenses like the bills abd the colts ,
thats why all year we didnt use him.
5. ridley has an upside , and vereen is getting open a lot and runs well in the draw.
6. Amendola - shoud be gone take the cap hit and sign a FA WR or draft one .
7. Boyce Thompkins over hyped and over rated.
8. dobson has to stay healty .
9.TE - first or second round in the draft has to be addressed , no production at all not sure if gronk can be healty all year .
10. DT - what can be said need to draft a stud , no more UDFA , 31 in rund defense say's it all.
11. LB - hightower needs to drop weight , collins may be the real deal , i would sign spikes to a friendly team offer.
12. CB - talib isnt worth the money dennard isn't a starting caliber CB , arrington has cost us more games than i can count needs to go move ryan to the slot , please BB sign a FA no more first round draft picks on CB.
13. SS/FS - gregory has to go cant cover cant tackle , DMC isnt worth an extension ,
adrian wilson washed up , tavon wilson second round bust again draft or FA .
14. need DC - patricia isnt just a BB puppet ,the defense is putrid .
15 . MCD - we need to bring a creative QB Coach that can call some plays , bombs on 3 and 3 to slater are mind blowing.
Biggest Needs .
1. DE - can we rush the passer does BB even blitz ??
2. CB - dennard and logan have potential but we need a stud CB not named talib .
3. SS - DMC might be a plug and play solution - gregory is a liability , draft one or get a FA , TJ ward night be a good fit.
4. OL - wendel too small to play center , volmer - can he be healty ??
5. WR - sign collie and edelman draft a Speedy tall WR , if we can trade for fitz i would do it .
6. TE - need to draft one and pray that gronk comes back healty.
7. GM - i like BB but he's draft picks of late have been marginal , not sold on hightower yet .
8. a read DC - wad phillips can help if BB can let his ego go .
thank you all and the pats to great year .
I hate the offseason and two more weeks of forhead talks.
wiTH all THIS YOU WERE BOUND TO GET something RIGHT. But there are things you say that are just crazy wrong. FOr example, while Mankins killed us on that 4th down sack of TB he was great all year. Fantasy football fans dont get that even THE BEST players have bad plays and even bad games. And there are other points you are very mistaken about too.
If one reads what you say HERE it would be clear that this years Pats team should ahve won no more tha 8 games and with the injuries should have won maybe 5. But they were 12-4, and won a playoff game against a team with one of the top 5 QBs in the league.
There are CLEARLY problems to fix. But you have no clue... its just FIX IT ALL... as if this team is... just not a good team... Try rooting for CLeveland...
