I sure hope nobody thought I wouldn't show up after the loss, especially that one.
Bad, BAD game on our end as well as a GREAT game on your end...as the saying goes, no team is as bad as they look in a loss, no team is a great as they appear in a win. I think that sums it up pretty nicely.
Patriots just had the right gameplan offensively and tore apart the Broncos D.
It's hard to say whether or not the defensive gameplanning was great, because Denver was forced to run the ball a lot more than planned in the first half...and by the second half, it was too late.
--Patriots better hope Morris is alright, that game was great for his confidence
--You can thank us for helping Cassel's confidence skyrocket...wouldn't be surprised if he puts up decent
numbers this year.
--Patriots pass blocking is horrendous. What did we have, like 6 sacks? And that's usually our weakness!
--I doubt, and I'm sure you agree, Moss does that well if Bailey doesn't get hurt and Bly never covered him.
--Patriots should make the playoffs, though I still see them as a wild card losing out to Buffalo, but finishing 10-6 or 11-5.
I'm pretty disappointed we couldn't show you the typical passing offense the Broncos normally have, but stuff like that happens and we couldn't adjust offensively, so no excuses here.
I still think Denver makes the playoffs at 10-6. Whether that's a wild card or a division title I don't know, but I've said it since Week 1 and I'm sticking with it.
However, if it is the division title, we'd likely be the fourth seed. If the Patriots finish 11-5 and don't win the division, they'd be the fifth.
Which means a rematch. In Denver. Hopefully with Cutler, Marshall, Royal Stokely, Scheffler, and everyone else healthy.
It's a match up I'd ABSOLUTELY look forward to.
