Let's face it, our offense as a whole has been pathetic this year. Brady for the most part hasn't been great either. We are 5-2, but have squeaked out a few close ones. We could pretty easily be 2-5. I think this embarrassing loss to the Jets might be what is needed to put the pressure on our offense and force them to improve. We most surely are not going to go into Denver and win a playoff game if we don't improve in a hurry. The good news is that it is only week 8 and there is a lot of time for improvement. The road to the SB is most surely going through Denver, though.
Denver's D sucks, so I'll just wait until January when get healthy and get everyone on the same page.
There is a lot of time for Brady to get his head out of his rectum, but my concern, with Gronk back, Brady's poor habits are still there, which is what my premise has been the whole time.
He may never win a SB again because of his poor fundamentals through 4 qtrs. This was just like the Cincy game. The only difference was the Jets whined all week about us getting calls and Goodell made a call into Jerome Boger and Co.
I am sorry, but you cannot go on the road with a team like Jets who play that game like it's their own personal SB, throw a pick 6 give momentum over and then have the refs seek out chances to make sure the Jets keep momentum like that.
Admit it, in this league you cannot go on the road and give teams momentum over large swats of the game like that.
Ever notice, that's always the offense that starts this stuff? Balt last year, Seattle. In 2011, it was @ Buffalo, vs the Steelers, Giants, Cowboys, etc.
This year's Saints game was the Cowboys games of 2011 when Brady had to lead the team down at the end.
We throw games away on offense because Brady wants to throw. I liked how they attacked them in the first qtr, but they got away from running the ball in the second half. Did the same thing in Cincy.
I want to know why. Is it because Gronk is back and Brady is giddy to to throw to him again?
It's a matter more so of consisntency and health than quality for today's loss, outside of the obvious bagjob today.
Sorry, dude. But they look great one week with a balanced offense, the bad the next without it.
When you're throwing a pick 6, going 3 and out over and over and over and over like that, it puts your D in an awful spot, Jets or no Jets.
Funny, no concern about our D after losing Mayo? I saw a lb corps today that was slow, exploited by the jets. i was waiting until this game to see how they would play and its apparent to me the loss of mayo is huge, bigger than Vince.
Yes, Brady needs to pull his head out and the offense needs to get much better if we are going to the playioffs. But an offense that can't convert on 3rd down and a defense that can't get off the field on 3rd downs is a recipe for disaster. Both squads need to play much better.
You are correct. Our LB's looked horrible. Spikes and Hightower couldn't beat old ladies with walkers .
And I might add the following:
What happened to Arrington? Cole is just plain horrible. He sucks more then my kirby.
How many 3rd and longs did this defense give up. Our D sux, no depth.
O line should be ashamed
Brady cant throw the long ball with precision anymore
Brady has no confidence with these 2nd and 3rd string wr's. How can you expect to make a super bowl run with these jokes.
The play calling was a joke too.
This team has to bring in some receivers and LB's and d line. Worst Patriots team I have seen in Bellichick era. Maybe he is getting old too.
Hightower looked just plain awful in coverage. Jets TE dominated him. And Cumberland dropped a few too. Pats were very very lucky today. It should have been at least 10-14 more points and Jets should have won in regulation.
