In response to agcsbill's comment:
Sheldong, it was a general statement and not directed at you. Yes, harp on the performance of a game, but, many make it look like the season is doomed already.
As for the game.. the second INT went right through Welker's hands and the Seahawk defender happened to be in the way before the ball went out of the endzone. Also, I concur with what some have said here about the passes Wison made which were over 40+ yards as they were heave and hope for the most part and, if I recall, there were three PI calls on the Pats on some completions which were declined while the Seahawks did not have a SINLGE PI call against them with all those passing attempts on the part of Brady? Either way, game is over, the Pats lost and I am passed it. Onto the Jests!
OK, general statement. As for the game, yes it went through Welker's hands. However, a rocket from three yards away isn't the easiest thing to catch. Welker had an excellent game -- as usual.
As for the PI calls, it doesn't matter. The receiver was in the right position and the (??)denfender((??) was totally boxed out (sorry for the basketball reference, but it fits). Now if the receiver had made some amazing catch, well that would have been a different story. But, for the most part, those heave and pray throws were VERY easy catches. For a while looking at the Seattle receivers I thought I was watching Brady to his receivers.
Again, "all those passing attempts" by Brady? Why? For two games, and against strong Baltimore and Denver defenses, we ran it down their throats and around their sides. Is Seattle's defense THAT much better? Also, where was out hurry-up.
All around, their play sucked yesterday.
Now on to the Jets. That is a crucial game.
