Agreed. The injuries are just legendary at this point. I've never seen a team lose their best starters right down the middle and continue to battle and play pretty well through some other injury issues.
BB has to be in line for Coach of the Year.
When your team is built around Tom Brady, a top 5 QB for his ENTIRE career, as long as you don't lose him, it's fine. You bash Brady at every turn, but he's the reason why the team has won 10 games. You're inability to recall the pre Brady days, makes you think that no team has ever had it as bad as the Patriots. It's arrogant and pathetic all at the same time. In your twisted opinion, you think that the Pats have these top5 players at every position and it's so dreadful when they go down. It's just not the case. We're not talking about a team loaded with stars here, now or at the beginning of the season. Get over it and stop your freakin crying.
I certainly appreciate what TB has done and what he continues to do, but the fact is that you can't honestly say that he is the reason that this team has won ten games, to this point. He is as culpible as anyone on this team for some of the slow starts and poor play this year. His overall play, this year, has been sub-standard, for him. The one thing that I am most excited to see from him, this year though, are his strong finishes. If he can keep that up in the playoffs then it's all good! Hopefully, he can find a way to get it going before half the game is over, that's all.
Exactly. I don;t understand why the Brady Ballwashers can't accept our point of view.
It's fair to factor in rookies, Gronk and Vereen out, etc, but that has little do with missing wide open receivers, poor throws or at times, poor leadership on the field. He also brainfarted two fumbled snaps earlier this year in games we could have lost and then said "we need to work on that", which basically throws Wendell under the bus, which is really weak. Each of those were Brady pulling back too soon, obviously.
ANyway...no need to rehash more, but it's tiring watching disingenuous Brady Ball Washers here. They will do anything to deflect, spin, lie and shape a situation back to his favor. It's quite sick.
Meanwhile, the rest of us just call it like it is.
He and McDaniels just need to have a better plan/chemistry and feel for the game and how the opponent shows itself earlier in these games.
I would try to be very efficient and diverse and get the OL moving more instead of just doing these playaction drop back plays when the run game hasn't been established. Keep Mulligan mostly in line, but also run a designed check down to him and Develin at some point out of the I Formation in the 1st qtr if you can.
Obviously, those guys are mainly blockers, but if you can show diversity with the player early in the game it sets you up in much better position later on in the game.
The first half vs Cleveland was an abomination. Way too many play calls that featured Gronk in the gameplan.
Against Miami and Baltimore and in the AFC Title game, I want the rock hammered until there is some momentum with it.
The team they face in the divisional rd likely won't have that capability, which is why Brady's best postseasn games since 2007 came in the divisional rd, minus the Jets match up in 2010.
Jax in 2007 and Denver in 2011. The Jets had the advantage of being in the division and being slapped by the Pats twice, so the drive was certainly there with nothing to lose in their mind.
I was on here saying what the Jets should do before that game. Did the same thing prior to the December match up, but stupid Rex had Cromartie on Branch. lmao
Yes moron, a lack of chemistry and players that are just not very good don't contribute to missing throws. Because, after all, you know all the plays and what each guy is suppose to do and where he should be. Right?
