In response to yakv's comment:
The defense also gave 507 total yards ,
once the run game was not existent , the pats midget WR coudlnt get seperation
not dobson , not amendola can we win games throwing fly routes to edelman or collie with no TE over the middle , we need a big TE and a tough slot WR to run over the middle ,
a Tall imposing WR would help strech the field and no boyce or thompkings arent the answer
not sure how long will brady carry this team , with no defensive help or offensive play makers , 2007 was the only year the pats went to take risks in FA and it paid off ,
but what the heck we can find another Adrian Wilson ,Jonathan Fanene , Visanthe Shiancoe .
The GM (name BB) has to wake up this offseason
Your analysis is god awful. Of course you will give up yards to the best offense of all time in an offensive era.
What did our offense do to help the D? NOTHING!
We lost 5 or 6 Pro Bowlers to injury early in the season, mid season or in that game right there.
That has nothing to do with BB the GM.
BB and Caserio are the run away Execs of the Year but you're whining about the GM? LOL!
Brady wasn't very good. Again. Mediocre ain't cutting it. He just can't see to string two good games together in the postseason. It's been like this for years and years.
He missed so many receivers and he threw over 35 times in a low scoring game. The only good news was no INTs.
Run game not existent? LOL! Teams know we won't be patient with it and we didn't even show we would be with Brady using play action and throwing so much so early.
All it takes a few run stops and you've got Brady baited.
I agree with you that YAKV comments were mostly gibberish. I also agree taht TB continues to do some stupid things... like throwing deep to Slater... and missing an wide open Julian... TB has one real weakness - he is not good throwing beyind 25 yards. He will hit some, everyone does. But he just is not accurate deep.
But he is still a great QB nonetheless. First of all his pass blocking has been sub par. Even Mankins blew a big play v Denver and Mankins is exceptional. We need a real solid C. We could use an upgrade at RG. We need a second option at TE - a solid all purpose starter who can be bother a 2nd Te and a starter if Gronk is out. Those upgrades will make the running game better to the point of being close to dominant. They will make the pass blocking better so not only TB but the WRs have time to do their thing. Give TB time... and protect his body... You saw Mannning.. they hardly touched him all game.. give TB the same protection and he will slice and dice... And better run blocking and you have a real offense to rival any others.
Center... Right Guard, alternative at TE. Let the rookie WRs develop....
Do this and your O problems are history.
As for the D, upgrade DT and DE. I like Nink and he should be here and will be here. He is good at too many things. But I would like to see a very good DT/NT and DE to up the pass rush and the dominance in the front seven . Even consider going back to a 3-4 with Nink and Collings on the outside and Mayo and Hightower on the inside.
