    anyone heard him today ? Holley seemed to have a problem with the scoring of the pats and kept asking Bruschi. He asked "What do you want us to do on Defense ? Let them score ?"

    thought it was a great line.

    Yes - having our football players play football is an embarrassment to other teams.

    From now on, once we've built up a 4 touchdown lead in the 4th quarter, both the offense and defensive squads will play Frisbee on the field.

    Otherwise the opposing team players might think we're showing them up.

    This is my problem with the running up the score stuff. The last few weeks the Pats have been way up with tons of time left. What are they supposed to do? I am pretty sure that taking a knee for an entire quarter or quarter & a half is impossible. If you intentionally go three and out on every drive, then you wear out your defense unnecessarily. The only thing I really had a problem with was Brady throwing it so much on the last drive he was in, and that was more because I thought it was foolish to put him at risk for injury. But, we saw the week before what could happen if you put Cassell in too early and he screws up. The Pats have already figured out that they can't win in the court of public opinion, so they are going to make damn sure they win on the field.

    You continue throwing because the defense is playing the run. They expect you want to runn out the clock by running.

    In reality you can run just as much time off the clock by making complete passes and staying inbounds.

    Did you see Brady intentionally spkie the ball to stop the clock or receivers run out of bounds to stop the clock?
