I have to say this is downright ridiculous. The convergence of events leading up to tonight is just too coincidental. Brady loses his first home game since 2006, and the first 2 losses in a row since 2009, and to whom? The Giants, Brady's nemesis. If that isn't pouring salt on your wound, I don't know what is. First, the embarrassing end to 2007, and the missed season of 2008, the slow comeback of 2009, the so-close call of 2010. This can't be a coincidence- I think it has to be some kind of character test. 2011 is still salvageable, but it remains to be seen if Brady can climb out of the dark valley he's been in since 2007. I have to say that the first thing that popped in my head after the game, was Aaron Boone's homerun in the 11-inning game 7 of the 2003 ALCS which was an insult on top of an insult on top of an insult. Perhaps the parallel is a bit stretched, but I can't think of a more psychological insult than what happened today; today was sort of a microcosm of the problems that has haunted Brady since 2007. It's just downright ridiculous; and that being said, I think we are at this point, past the X and O's- it's not this or that player, and neither is it a whodunnit or whatdunnit. I don't think it's fair to blame the defense. They played extremely well in the first half, and only unraveled in the last few minutes which is typical of a young team that just isn't quite there in terms of being able to mentally play 60 full minutes. But I think they are getting there. Losing Spikes was huge, but we also lost Mayo and Guyton on the last few snaps. That was White who gave up the game winning TD. I really don't think the team can sink any lower than this. From this point on, there are two roads to take- one is a repeat of 2009, and the other is to find a solution to the sudden increase in man coverage played against us, and for Brady to drop his balls and stop playing off his heels and to get his poise back, get back on track strong and finish this season strong. This is a character-defining moment. He didn't just have a bad day today, he also had a bad day last week. He has to get out of this funk. Also, when you look at the numbers, the playcalling was once more out of balance. I have repeated this so many times, but when the run/pass is not in balance regardless of how well Brady plays, it's automatically a loss, and has been for the last two years. Today: 75 plays, 51 pass, 24 rushes. BJGE had 12 attempts, and Ridley had 3, and yes, that's just three, attempts. That is unbelievable. I don't count Woodhead because he's not a true back. Until that changes, we're not going anywhere. That's the bottom line. I think the balance of the season hangs on next week's game. How we play in that game will show which fork in the road the team has taken.
