this is endless
It's getting stupid. So now the defense got tired while the offense was on the field running up the score ?
No, no, no.
Had Steve not been worn out all season, having to kick a NFL record amount of extra points, he wouldnâ€™t be so tired during the game.
Then BB would have had the confidence to have him kick the FG on 4th and 13.
That has got to be the biggest crock of sh*t I have ever seen. Whichever moron wrote that should never, EVER be allowed to write about football again.
belichickfan is right. this makes no sense.
His argument only makes sense if our offense is too tired to do anything. The offense was running up the score on other teams.
It's not possible to have your defense run up the score on other teams.
What a stupid bastard.
â€“ "Belichickâ€™s aging defense couldnâ€™t stop Eli Manning and the Giants on two crucial fourth-quarter possessions. They didnâ€™t have the legs to keep up. I canâ€™t help but think that all the blowouts., all the times that Belichick ran up the score, played a role in this. So many times this season, the Patriots kept their starters on the field much longer than they needed to, as Belichick tried to humiliate other coaches in some bizarre act of revenge for being fined for his cheating. Well, on Sunday night in the Valley, the age and the arrogance finally caught up to Belichick and his defense."
Although I don't know your background, I can glean from your writing that it is devoid of any sort of organized sports or competition. It is plainly evident that you have never played or coached the sport of football. The fact that you are allowed to write about football is both wonderful and shameful at the same time. Wonderful because in this fine country, a hack with a limited knowledge base such as yourself can carve out a living inciting the locals into a frenzy with slanted journalism and verbal thuggery. Shameful because there is no one in your town to offer quality sports coverage thanks to your presence.
If you truly believe what you wrote in the above passage, and I have my doubts...you should never be allowed to write about the sport of football again. That paragraph has to be the most ridiculous, contrived and absurd piece of garbage yet. The fact that it was written in a season filled with nonsensical media spew makes it all the more disturbing. You truly have outed yourself as a man who has no grasp of the game he is paid to write about. You are a venomous jerk twisting the facts to support your conclusions. Please, do the sports world a favor. Walk into your Editor's office, turn in your employee badge and take a stroll to the nearest fast food restaurant to begin your next career. I would tear apart your entire article but I can't bring myself to repost any more of your uninformed trash. I am amazed that a city like St Louis doesn't have another soul to write for the St Louis Dispatch, perhaps one that has actually watched a football game.
Stop torturing yourselves by reading that crap
Any would have been better off losing/resting/peaking later, etc. talk to me is absolute rubbish.
what a total dip****...did it ever crosss his pee brain that if NE's offense wasn't staying on the field that their defense would? The Patriots keeping the ball, going for it on 4th down many times was actually keeping their defense fresh.
I don't buy any "they were tired after a long season" excuses.
This team earned a first round bye, then got a bye between the AFCCG and the Super Bowl.
If anyone should have been tired, it would have been the Giants with three road playoff games and traveling to London to play the Dolphins in the middle of the year.
A week later and people are still trying to break down red hoodie vs. grey hoodie and whether the pressure of 19-0 was too much (my vote- NO). That last Brady drive looked pretty strong to me. The game was lost on a fluky series of missed interceptions, missed tackles, and a crazy helmet catch.
It sucks, but I still wouldn't trade with a Buffalo Bills fans and their Scott Norwood missed field goal ending (also to the Giants) followed by 3 more SB losses.
The theory is truly bogus. All of our players can afford Gatorade.
The really bogus part amongst many, was te initial premise. The biggest failures on the last drive came from the younger players-Samuel. Merriweather, Green, Seymour, Hobbs. rodeney had darn good coverage for a broken play, Tyree just made a great grab!

I guess he appreciated my sentiments.
This is case of monkey see monkey do....
Last year when we lost it may have actually been due to the fact that they were tired and worn out...I think Worn out is the better term. If you go back to last year you can really see that this team was worn out from a tough season, a tough game vs the CHargers the week before, and they burned out in the first half of the overheated RCA dome.
This year That was not the case...I am sure they were tired as it was the last defensive drive of the game but they showed that there was still something left in the tank as they were all over the field trying to make plays it was just a case of the breaks falling the other way.
The ball was just out of reach 4 times(3 near picks and Rodneys near pass deflection on Tyree) and the QB was just out of reach once and than the coaches called the worst blitz ever.
That is one of the single dumbest things I have ever read.
that is a website DEVOTED to BB, right?
I was confused, because everything on there is absolutely brutalizing him. It's painful.
Has a franchise won more superbowls off freak plays like the Giants? A helmet catch/houdini escape this year and a most reliable Scott Norwood missing a makeable FG.
Dude, 6000+ post and you actually ripped BB? For the record your theory is weak and has no legs. From a fan's point of view, ummmmmmmmmmm maybe Eli could have been sacked had, BB not been on the Grassy Knoll.
oh yeah, GO PATS!
