is that a record? We probably could have had 8 for 8 if we went ofr the 4th and inches
if you don't rush Brady this season you got zero shot, Andy...that much is apparent
I guess cold weather won't slow down the offense too much.
The only thing that could slow this team down would be to kidnap Brady. But good luck kidnapping Tom "Superman" Brady.
Not just 7 drives, 7 TDs...
7 drives, 7 TDs, no sacks, no fumbles! That is a perfect performance by the starting offense. I've never seen anything close.
How the heck is Belichick going to bake any humble pie out of these ingredients? The larder is bare! ("We left some points on the field...oh no, wait, we didn't.")
He's gonna rat on Stallworth for dropping a pass and Moss for dropping 2. He has plenty of humble pie for the defense.
Felt like a record to me. Perfection!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Realistically yes, you can find mistakes by every player in any game. But 49 points on 7 possessions with no sacks or fumbles is the functional definition of perfection for an offense. (Just as you can achieve a "perfect" QB rating while throwing some incompletions.) And it's not like the Bills were tripping over their own feet -- they were just outmanned.
On defense, I see 4 sacks, 2 FFs, 1 INT, 1 TD while allowing just 10 points and 229 total yards despite playing vast swaths of junk time. That's good stuff.
Maybe this is the week to lean on special teams?
But we coulda scored faster!!!
How can we forget that Brady took an intentional grounding penalty? I hope he's made to run a lap or two for having his head so far removed from the game as to make such a terrible error. Humble Pie, Tom!
You can add no false starts* and no holding penalties to the list, too.
*Yeah, there was a false start on Kyle Eckel on the punt, but that's not the OL's fault.
Finkle is Einhorn! Einhorn is Finkle!
You are right, Hansen couldn't drop the punt inside the three....from the thirty-three....lol
Another target for humble pie: Ellis Hobbs. I feel like I've seen him give up reception after reception all year - and I'm not just saying this b/c of the long TD on which he got himself completely out of position. He has looked WORSE this season than he did over his fine second half last year.
I'm sure he'll get some (TOTALLY DESERVED) attention this week from BB, even with his heady (completely easy) fumble-return for TD.
