  1. 3rd and 15! Failed in '06 title game, failed in superbowl and failed again. It makes me sick to see the defense fold when it matters most.

    However, I will say Cassel is the man. I will eat crow on that.

    At some point, getting burned over the middle by tight ends starts to wear thin.

    Expect all the homers to bash you, but there is no excuse for that 3rd and 15 situation. After all they did to come back, and you can't stop them on 3rd and ******* 15? Give me a break.

    Keep McDaniels out of the draft room, stop wasting top draft picks on offensive skill positions.

    Rebuild the defense and its depth.

    Defense wins championships. You can find a WR and RB off the free agent list or with low draft picks. Only use high picks for defense, or offensive line or TE.

    The homers will makes excuses, but here are the facts: The patriots defense is poor. They havent been able to get off the field in 3rd and longs for over two years. There is NO excuse for giving up a 3rd and 15 with the game on the line.

    We're terrible with them aren't we. Chad Jackson. Maroney. Graham. Watson. Some decent players but not a single real good pick there.

    Bad, bad, bad defense agian...too many 3rd and tens 3rd and ******* 15 and we give up first downs???
  14. They had a chance to stop them in overtime with a third and 15. They let the Jets walk right down the field. If you really want me to die, that just shows your pathetic.

    That's the thing about football. Yes, the D blew it, but it's not like they are the sole cause of the loss.

    Seriously AWEFUL OT series on the D. No getting around it. They did some good things tonight, just not on that series.

    Dan Pees: if the offense has to get X yards for a first down, don't freaking give them X yard passes on every third down.

    I am so freaking pissed right now. Super Bowl all over again (divided by 1,000,000). An amazing last second amazing catch by Moss. Another complete freaking meltdown by our secondary.

    On the upside, Cassel was a'ight.

    You need to calm down, guy. You are the typical internet tough guy, who talks a bunch of crap, because in real life you are a little wimp.

    The D sucks, deal with it.

    If you're looking for a trend, look no further than who the defensive coordinator has been for the three major collapses.
    Why the HELL did we change our base defense in the fourth quarter? The team with Guyton and Jarvis Green was terrorizing the Jets for the third quarter and into the 4th until we tied it. Then we went back to the defense that gave up 24 in the first half. Unreal.

    Yes the offense made those mistakes.. yes it cost them yards and probably points.. but they scored 31 points.. and the D gave up 34.. Overall in the NFL if your O gets you 31 points? Thats a job well done.. a D that gives up 34? Failure..
