    Re: Devin McCourty = Suck

    It's astonishing how bad he sucks, he's been sucking for the entire game, costing us plays throughout, I'm beginning to hate him.

    He needs to be benched. If he's in position to make a play he doesn't make it and the rest of the time he gets burnt.

    Jeez, the guy played solid for most of the game. He did have the most crucial PI which was his fault, but to say he needs to be benched or that he sucked all game is just not true.

    I thought he played well most of the game. He had some phantom calls made on him. That last one however, was tough.

    Could someone please

    Remind Devin McCourty how to catch a ball.

    That is all.

    Re: Could someone please

    .....and while we're at it could someone please let the offense know it is OK if they close out a game.
    How is it they can run 3 plays with less than 3 minutes to go in the game, lose yards when doing it and have to punt the ball before the 2 minute warning.

    Embarrassing!!!!!


    Meet the 2012 Patriots. Same as the 2011 Patriots.

    Defense can't stop anyone and are forced back onto the field because the offense can't close out game

    Agree with all this but BB doesn't ever seem to want bench him. I'd rather see Dowling out there, or Arrington and Moore

    It's clear to me that opposing offenses now flat out see him as a weak link, how many times did Flacco just lob it up down his sideline

    I wouldn't blame the entire loss on him but it's pretty evident McCourty is a heaping pile of trash at cornerback.

    I guess we apportion no blame to a front seven who could only manage one TFL the entire night?

    Granted, McCourty was up and down but I think there's plenty of blame to go around.

    Don't forget that the "best quarterback in the league" just threw lobs down the sidelines for the last two gamewinning drives. McCourty had his chances and he didn't come through. I think he will though. How about Arrington tripping all over himself on a lob he should have picked. Flacco got lucky our corners played as bad as I have seen in a long time.

    Saying "this loss is on McCourty" is about as useful as blaming Hernandez for being too injured to play.

    There's always 100 things that fgo into every win and loss but McCourty's horrid performance was critical to costing us the game, time after time he screwed up bad.

    "McCourty imploded"

    Really? REALLY?! Apart from a missed tackle and a PI he had a great game! He was unlucky with that bogus holding call on Smith and for the most part he took his man out of the game.

    All is right with the world...great Pats offense for three quarters, but can't beat the pass-rush pressure in the end...no four-man pass rush success and the secondary getting torched with McCourty being the anti-ball hawk. The world has righted itself.

    Couldn't disagree more. McCourty played well all night. You can only ask your corners to cover deep so many times before bad things happen. The Patriots front four got no pressure b/c they were being held all night, and the corners were thrown off by the god-awful officiating. Maybe if McCourty isn't called for a ghost penalty he doesn't miss his jam on Jones at the end, I don't know. All I know is that game was a mess and it's hard to evaluate the defense.

    I thought overall that McCourty had a good game.

    Chung is a nonfactor. His only saleable skill appears to be flying into a pile and injuring himself. Blaming this all on McCourty is asinine.

    McCourty seemed to be fine until he got horribly interfered with in the end zone on Smith's second TD. I can't blame him for not knowing what to do after that.

    Especially when #24 was giving up completion after completion all night long.

    I think McCourty played fairly well except for a few plays. He should have made the interception and he definately miss-played the deep ball on the final Ravens drive. He looked like Butler or Wilhite on that play, just grabbing the WR. I put the loss on the Offense not excuting in the 4th quarter, they haven't looked sharp in key situations.
