    Not the real deal?

    Dallas didn't get a first down until the second quarter!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dallas vaunted offense scored 17 points on New England and was beaten into a 27-3 run to end the game!

    Not the real deal?

    This kid must be hitting Randy Moss' krypto stash...

    Sounds like Crayton and TJ Douchmanzadah are cut from the same cloth.

    I guess I won't have to worry about losing to the Cowboys in the Super Bowl now - what a bunch of idiots.

    Maybe Crayton needs to go review the tape and see how his offensive line had to resort to blatant holding on every play in order to stop the Pats D.

    Blasphemy!!!

    Ya'll thinking about scheduling them again, just cause you're so pissed off and motivated???


    Good point though, sounds like the Bengals after the Colts get done with them. Palmer, Housch and the like. Actually, it was a hell of a shoot out in Cincy 2 years ago. Trouble for them is, they never made it to meet us (too bad Palmer got hurt though-he really screwed things up!)

    He has a point. When Romo was on, he pretty much passed at will. Some of that was probably "prevent" defense, but the pats secondary is slow. Especially LBs and safeties covering over the middle.

    Probably good enough, but needs a lot of work next year.:mad: :singing: :(

    Gotta love the anger and indignation the Pats vanquished opponents always seem to vent. Reminds me of a scene from the lousy "Conan The Barbarian" movie:


    Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?

    Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.

    Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?

    Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

    Mongol General: That is good! That is good.

    I think it's hysterical that a guy whose team has just been blown out at home is talking as if the Pats will be the lucky ones if they make it to the Superbowl. Seems to me, Patrick, that the only way you are going to see the Pats in AZ (if they make it to AZ) is from the stands. Goofball.

    From yesterday's Dallas Morning News game story:

    The Cowboys' offense, which entered the game as the top-ranked unit in the NFL, put up season lows in yards (283), first downs (13), plays (46) and points (20). It had the ball for only 21 minutes, 45 seconds.

    Let those weak fools talk all the trash they want, It just makes us more unstoppable. It just goes to prove that whenever teams lose, thier first instinct is to blame the other team. Although i cannot stand Peyton Manning, I have to give him props that whenever he loses, he only blames other players on his own team.

    In fairness to Dallas, a large contributor to Dallas' season lows was the fact that NE's offense was so good. Turn two of NE's TD drives into punts and Dallas has more opportunities to generate yards and points.

    Even if Crayton is a jackass, I don't necessarily disagree that NE's defense looked a little vulnerable. But I just think that Dallas presented some matchup issues with their size that most other offenses, including Indy's, don't present.

    Boy, they just never learn do they... :nono:

    If the Cowboys manage to get a rematch Crayton better have his brainless head mounted on a swivel.

    Sure the offense keeping the ball always helps a defense, but the Cowboys only put together two drives really. And we just needed to make adjustments in the middle of the field to fix it. The defense isn't in playoff form yet, nor should they be, but they are still performing very well and very much the "real deal".

    They had about 3 good runs and aside from that not much. One of the runs came to Wright's side where he just couldn't/didn't get off his block and close his gap soon enough. Seymour will surely not let that happen.

    Going just on memory, it seems that TE's and the middle of the field is where MOST passing yardage comes from against us. However it seems to come in spurts during a game after the other team makes adjustments and before we do. It's also a small factor of protecting against the big play and forcing the defense to have sustained time-killing drives to get points, nothing quick.

    Dallas had two long scoring drives - one at the end of the first half and one at the beginning of the second quarter. Otherwise, the Cowboys accomplished little on offense. Once Dallas took the lead in the third quarter, the NE defense dropped the hammer, including holding the Cowboys to 3 after the long kick return.

    That wasn't the best game the Pats defense has ever played. They had some poor tackling, some communication issues early in the game in the secondary and didn't control the LOS as well as usual against a very big Dallas OL.

    That said, Crayton is a tool. He should realize that if he does play the Pats again, they will probably be playing a completely different defensive scheme. Belichick never does the same thing twice, and they always are greatly improved later in the year as opposed to early on.

    And two of Dallas' drives were stopped after getting first downs by unnecessary penalties.

    And weren't the three points they did get during the 27-3 run off a nice defensive hold after the botched KO return?

    EDIT: Sorry, Zeus. I missed that you already wrote that.

    In fairness to Crayton, he plays for the Cowboys. That means he has first hand experience of not being the real deal.

    And whenever the Pats lose, You can bet BB is up there saying how we were beaten by a better team. How many other coaches do that?
