In Response to Re: scoring differential by half
We're young on defense, we didn't adjust at half time and we were very hurt. Our defense against good teams was Paper mache' in the second half which is a true sign of youth and lack of nuts. We're also young in the Coaching end which led to the most predictable play calling I've seen since Dick McPherson held the reigns. This is also good proof why some of the stats we throw out there to show how good the Pats were last year are very misleading. We compiled a good majority of those stats in the first half and against the More $h!tty teams in the league. And....We still made the playoffs..I expect better results this year on defense and from our Make-shift O-Coordinator.

I think the excuse of blaming the New England defense for the team's short comings isn't fair.
Buffalo - 14 points in the first half, 10 in the second.
NYJ- 3 in the first half, 13 in the second. (0 points scored in the second by NE.)
ATL - 10 in the first half, 0 in the second half.
Ravens - 7 in the first, 14 in he second.
Denver - 7 in the first, 10 in the second. (0 points scored by NE in the second)
Tennessee - 0 points scored
Tampa - 7 in the first, 0 in the second.
MIA - 10 in the first, 7 in the second.
Indy - 14 in the first, 21 in the second. Only 10 points in the 2nd qt, but 24 in 1st
NYJ - 7 in the first, 7 in the second.
NO - 24 in the first, 14 in the second. (only 17 points by the offense, all game)
MIA - 10 in the first, 12 in the second. (only 7 points in the second by NE)
Panthers - 7 in the first, 3 in the second.
Bills - 3 in the first half, 7 in the second.
Jags - 0 in the first, 7 in the second.
Texans - 13 in the first, 21 in the second(only 14 points in the second half)
Did we have a dominant defense last year? No, but the offense didn't help much.
