.......huh? You're of the opinion they abandoned the run too quickly and have the audacity to talk to me like I'm mentally challenged, but you believe they should have ran more by throwing the ball? Brilliant. I want you to go look at the play-by-play of the first half of the game and tell me where they could have ran the ball more. By the time the Patriots got the ball back in the second half, they were down 3-20. The Patriots still tried to use the running game on the next drive.. a drive that was killed off by a sack. Not until the 4th quarter, when New England finally had to abandon the running game, did they score a TD. Same with next drive. A TD with only one running play. The offense didn't have an opportunity to play the style they wanted. The Broncos had too many clock killing drives. When a team has their two longest drives of the season in one game, they are winning. The Broncos were the better team, and the coaching staff knew. Brady was the only way they could win. It didn't work out.
