In Response to The Pats' Best Friend is Also Their Own Worst Enemy
[QUOTE]It's obvious the hurry up works great for Brady & the offense, BUT... it gets them off the field faster too. And, then what's next? The Pats' D comes on the field and we hold our breath because we know what's coming next... a long, time-consuming drive that may end up in 7 points for the other team. Then since time is slipping away, TB has to go back into the hurry up to hopefully put up another 7 points, not just 3. Then here we go again, back on the field comes the Pats' D. The Pats had better develop a running game to help eat some of the time off the clock or they're in serious trouble. And, the O cannot turn the ball over. Almost every offensive drive needs to end up with 7 points. So what do you guys think is the answer for the playoffs? Can the Pats win a shootout against playoff teams? And, if they make it to the SB, can they win a shootout against Rodgers or Brees? What can they do to win if we all know the D is never going to come around in time this season? If run-of-the-mill QBs put up 300 - 400 yards against this D, what will Rodgers or Brees do? Somebody please give me hope.

Thank you for blessing us with such an informative peice of writing. I actually totally agree but good luck finding anyone outside of Rusty to agree with you.
Most people here, just being Pats fans, have forgotten what a run game looks like, and the importance of one.
I will show you the post I started last week about this so you can read, but I dont think anyones gonna give 2 shyts. I swear half these folks are brainwashed by watchin this team. They think the only way to win is to pass, pass and pass some more....
Seems to me all the experts say we need to run. We are usually dusting off the run game in December and this year we are still chucking it around close to Christmas time....Not good!
I hope its more a result of our backs being dinged up more so than a blatant disregard of the run game.
Teams will have their ears pinned back , salivating at the chance to come after Brady in January, and Oh! let me guess, Brady is also gonna have a bad foot.
Mark it down....lol
