    Belichick: Patriots Loss to Seahawks Was Just 'One of those Days'
    By: Ian Logue

    Sunday's loss to Seattle left Belichick with little answers for what seems to be a team full of questions recently....

    This "easy" schedule doesn't look so easy anymore. At 3-3 with 10 games left it's going to a struggle to get to even 10-6, which means 7-3 over the remaining games. Does anything from this team lead anyone to believe they're a club that can put together winning streak? At any rate to have any sniff of a bye week they need to finish at 10-0 or 9-1 - anyone see that happening? Yeah I know Baltimore has injuries, but so don't the Pats and Baltimore's defense isn't a sieve....

    One of those days where his clock management was losey at the end of the first half, and play calling turned conservative with good field position with 3 minutes to go in the game.

    You could add forgetting to at least try and run the ball more.......58 throws by a QB usually spells LOSS more than WIN

    A very misleading title, that makes it sound like BB is not assigning any blame to the loss, when in fact he is saying the usual:

    We didn't make enough plays,

    we need to play better,
    the offense needs to be better,
    the defense needs to be better,
    special teams needs to be better,
    and coaches need to coach better.

    The defense has needed to play better for several years now....they must not be paying attention :bricks:

    I'm sure BB is way more pissed off than any of us could ever be. BUT, he's smart enough to not lose his cool in front of the press. Hopefully, behind closed doors, he's beating the **** out of the team.

    Like June 26, 1876 was just one of those days for Custer at the Battle of The Bighorn.

    I guarantee BB is rip$hit, they wonr let another game that they should win slip away again this year, this is why hes the best coach in the league.

    if i hadn't thought the same thing after the Cardinals game and then after the Ravens game, I would feel better about that.

    i'm going to remain optimistic. Belichick and Brady will turn this around.

    Thinking the same thing. If he would've been saying that no one was to blame, I was gonna suggest he get out of coaching.

    I didn't think they ran against Seattle very well. They weren't getting into great 2nd/3rd down yardage on the ground. And what was that crucial series with 3 straight runs going nowhere? I'm not complainin' about it, mind you... tough game, blown opportunities everywhere.

    For a guy who preaches situational football I hope he figures out they award points for field goals and being up by 10 heading into the locker room at the half is preferable to leaving 3 points on the field because you wanted to squeeze 7 out of 6 seconds with no TO's remaining or margin for error because you already ballaxed time management in the waning seconds of the half.

    Probably because Seattle is tough but more likely because as Josh stated today they didn't game plan to run all week, it was passing game all the way because the safety in the box apparently concerned them more than the sizeable corners. Then when the passing game hit some bumps and they needed to move the ball on the ground to close Seattle out they couldn't. Because it's not just a switch you flip. If you only run when it's easy to you can't really expect to be able to run when you have to.

    Couldn't understand why with so little time on the clock (which was another one of BB miscues yesterday) he didn't take the three points, its not like seattle is some offensive jugernaught. In the end it would have won the game.

    Yes, but Mr. Belichick....with all due respect...IT SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE DAYS!!!! If you and your coaches had made SMARTER decisions during this game, worked the clock better, and TAKEN THE POINTS That were sitting on the table to be taken....WE wouldn't be having this conversation!!!!!!! SO much of this had to do with coaching....the other areas are Brady making dumb a## decisions that killed drives or led to TO's.....or, Sorry Bill back to you.....players in our secondary that SHOULD BE working at Home Depot right now (You need a paint stirrer with that?) and not starting for the best NFL franchise in the history of the game!!!!!

    It wasn't just one of those days Bill. The coaches crapped the bed being too cute and the team followed suit.

    That's what I said after the AZ game, then after Baltimore. This is beginning to look like 2002. A fatally flawed defense and post Superbowl hangover. May be looking at the same record as that team.

    Because they actually prepare for and practice that situation, and know that 6 seconds is enough to run a play and leave time for the FG.
    There is no reason not to run the play and try for the TD. Brady made a poor decision. That doesn't make the correct decision wrong, unless your argument is putting the ball in Tom Bradys hands is stupid.

    Seriously, I hate coming here after a loss because its just a stupid exercise of so many fans feeling entitled to have a win, so they decide to come up with thier own favorite personal reason to rip someone,and feel better about it, whether it makes sense or not.
    Running a play there was the right thing to do. Blowing the 10 seconds before that was a vital error.

    A harsh lot we have here at pats fan.com

    While it always sucks to lose a game, you have to figure it is going to happen. If we brought our A game, how many teams in the laegue would actually be able to compete (maybe 1-2).

    The only way we are going to lose is if we bring our C- to B- game and other teams bring their A game. Basically, the only way we lose is if we make mistakes. If this was baseball and it was a best of 7 series, there would be a handful of teams..maybe...that could take a series from us. Football is juts less forgiving because it's one game only.

    Good teams win games when they don't bring their A game.

    Not always.

    Are you saying this team isn't good because they didn't win or just weren't good enough this last sunday. I mean it's one thing to be outclassed and lose with dignity and its another to muff enough plays to lose you the game. Would you feel better if you switched the 2 halves around so they had a terrible first half, but showed some play making ability in the second half, but then lost a close game?

    Ive mentioned talking about, clock management during the last minute or so before we got the ball back. And again seattle isn't a high scoring team, (they are however on of the top defenses in the league) theres not a need to go for TD's every time we get our hands on the ball. The bottom line not grabbing those three points cost us the game. Don't bother jumping in to answer any of my posts, your nothing but a blind homer (the biggest on this forum) that will make any excuse for anything BB and the team does. I want a little balance, a little Objectivity, not what is in essence, a troll in reverse. While some here Never have anything good to say about the team, your the opposite, BB and the team, the organization can do No Wrong, they Never make a mistake
