Not scoring a td before the half was horrendous, however saying BB is not a good coach is ridiculous. Patriots were 1 Gronk away from winning it all.
I didn't say he's a bad coach, but something is not right with him. We can't blame Patricia because when Pees was the DC the d played the exact same. The defense is terrible as usual. A couple of good games to tease us, a few blitzes during the regular season, and the BAM: Dropping 7 into coverage and getting picked apart. Every. F'ing. Year.
Scared to lose isn't the way to win a Super Bowl. Its the way to blow an important game.

Re: After Talib went down, and Arrington took over, Patriots were done..

Also, being shut out in the 2nd half? That is embarrassing. Pats offense sets records in the regular season and plays like crap when it matter most at least starting in the 4th of the Colts AFCCG, the two superbowls and of course today. thats why they lost, not b/c of Talib.
Sorry but you lost because we outplayed you. Period. Eat some crow. We felt like this last year except we WERE the better team. Good game but give respect where its due.
Zolak just said it: This isn't about the defense! The "best offense in the NFL" just put up 13 points.
Something needs to change. Consistently falling short is unnecessary and we need to do something to fix that. Does that mean throwing money at a Greg Jennings? Maybe but Tommy has been out of sync the past 5 postseasons (excluding Denver last year and maybe Houston) and he needs help. As the great Giselle Bundchen once said, "My husband can't throw the ball and catch it at the same time!"
For all the over reactionary lops, please read that again and again. The Patriots method for victory is offense...and they laid an egg on offense today!
The offense wasn't terrible in the running game and the OL was giving TFB decent amount of time mostly. This was a TFB lacking performance or a poor Patriot receiving group performance or a superb Raven coverage performance or a combination of two or all of these. Choose whatever makes you feel best. But saying the trenches were somehow manned by 'un-physical' Patriots is a flat out joke.
I'm done with brady......I'm convinced his offenses will fall flat on their faces any time an opposing defense decides to play rough
between the pats offense and the ravens defense, pollard was the smartest player on the field.......he know what it takes to make the pats offense run scared.
the pats played afraid on both sides of the ball, and if it was a street fight, the pats took so many lefts that it was ready to beg for a right.
an embarrassing folding of the tents, and ray lewis and ed reed get their last laugh against the pats.
between the coaching, the playing and the toughness, the pats swept them all in a pathetic manner.
I really hope brady does not hang around for another 3-4 years.....starting to remind me of the celtics big 3 in the late 80's......everyone knew it was time to move on, but nobody could.
this team will not win it all with the current scheme
I would agree with you on the first part, but the Ravens didn't do anything that I would consider playing him rough. Brady just **** the bed like he always seems to do in the Championship games and Super Bowls, and the defense followed his play in the second half.
I've been saying all year that our defense is one year away, and I still feel that way. Baltimore has explosive physical guys on both sides of the ball, we don't. Also, just too many injuries, Gronk, Edelman and Talib were too big to overcome. Staying healthy is part of the luck that goes along with winning Championships. We need a healthy team to win it all.
IMO we would have no chance against the 49's because they have
something we forgot we need like a defense to win in the post season's better to lose the AFCG the to lose another Superbowl which IMO we would have..
Instead of starting a new thread, I'll just toss this in here....
As frustrating and as much of a let down that was, there is no team on earth, in any sport that I am more proud to be a fan of than the New England Patriots.
I get the disappointment but the blow it up now and other such feelings I see here and on twitter are baffling. There is a world of sport outside of Foxboro, the majority of which would trade an entire history for the last 12 years of New England football and we are closer to joining that majority than I'd care to think about.
Take a step back, take some perspective and be happy (not satisfied) with what we've got.
