In Response to Re: Tom Brady is on pace to.....
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tom Brady is on pace to..... : The D has been better than our offense, overall, the last month. The root cause of why the D ins't even better is because of the offense pretty much not doing this: 1. Not scoring for long periods of the game. 2. Clock management 3. Field position 4. Not dictating by even getting a FG on easy drives/poor drives to start game or out of halftime. 5. Taking pressure of our D/giving them some rest to help. There is a myth right now by the media (Dungy and Rodney just said this), that claims Brady is pressing to much FALSE In Oakland and against the Jets, Brady threw less than 40 times, we ran all over those teams, and we scored 34 and 31 points, with 31 likely being more if Brady doesn't throw an INT when Hernandez dropped it. So, compare Buffalo's game, why we lost, and why we responded in Oakland and against NY. We changed how we played because of Brady's mismanagement in Buffalo, throwing the game away. They clearly adjusted, told Brady we ain't passing 40 times against Oakland and the Jets, and we won. Gee, what a nove concept. Then, Brady gets back to playing the way he wants, and we deserved to lose to Dallas. This isn't rocket science here. For some it is, but for the ones who have a clue (like us), it's not. We ran it, our D gained confidence, players played better, actually battled very well against Dallas, had a C game in Pitt, but again battled, and then last week collapsed late due to being on the field so much, some late injuries, and PI calls. These are all facts of what happened, not opinions or misrepresentations. I saw this with my own two eyes. Our D was outstanding last week for 57 minutes. Is it too much to ask for our offense to do something better for at least 3 more minutes in that game last week? Really? The talent on that offense? Hmm. At some point our offense simply must show up to work somehow, some way. This will not happen unless we run the ball, see better gameplans from O'Brien and Brady and better execution from our offense. We got Logan Mankins playing like absolutely dog dung after holding out for 9 mil per, and Tony Dungy/Rodney Harrison think Brady is trying to do too much to score 30+ points. It's a farce. They're making excuses due to Brady's greatness in prior seasons. Brady is playing far WORSE than 2006 when Reche Caldwell was his #1. It's true. Run the ball, take pressure of Brady, the O Line and your D, and let's get back to methodical, basic football here. This debate was dead in 2009, was fixed in 2010 when Moss was dealt where everyone breathed a sigh of relief, sort of like when you break up with your girlfirend but waited so lonng to do it, only to get back with that girlfriend last January, which was a clear mistake. It's like a fungus. Rid the team of the fungus (shotgun spread at 60% of your plays aaginst good Ds) and I can pretty much guarantee our team looks closer to the Pats of 2003 or 2004, then what we've seen. We have ZERO continuity and it STEMS from the offense being absolutely HORRIBLE over 60 minutes. They might look good a times with eye popping Welker plays, but that's not good enough. Let's act like we know what Pats team is supposed to look like instead of listening to stat and fantasy geeks like Babe Parilli and Mt. Hurl. If they want to play with their Brady dolls, play 10 fantasy leagues and MAdden video games, that's their business.

Again with the Brady has hi-jacked Bill Belichicks control of the team Rusty?
You are here incessantly informing we the unwashed that we can't possibly appreciate the genius that is Bill Belichick - and THEN going on to tell us that Brady has taken control of the offense - that Bill Belichick has no say in the matter
Rusty - did YOU get past the 10th grade? If so, did you happen to take any logic courses? If so, how did that go?
Rusty - you simply cannot make the Pats D better than what all of us see every week by repeating over and over how good they are - that is not how it works
Rusty - your posts are start to sound like that golden oldie - Louie, Louie
