Here we go: 1.) First and foremost, I am damn proud of this team. It is disappointing that their season ends today, but most teams wouldn't have had a winning record with all the things that went wrong this season. Hernandez being a scumbag murderer. They lose Wilfork and Kelly in the first few weeks. Amendola tears his groin. Mayo gone. Talib injured for most of the year. Vollmer gone. Gronk gone. Spike injured most of the second half and could barely walk. Dennard, Dobson, and a few others out for long stretches. This team had no right to be in the AFCCG. Their heart, players playing over their heads, Brady, and Belichick are the reason they got there. 2.) With a few moves and a bunch of players returning from injuries, this team should he the favorite in the AFC. A small consolation, but at least there is hope. 3.) With Wilfork and Mayo already gone, this defense had Talib holding the defense together. The second he went out (just like last year's AFCCG) this defense fell apart. Dennard was schooled by Thomas and the rest of the defense were constantly out of place. 4.) That said, they still played tough in the red zone (the Broncos were 2 for 6 in the red zone). This team would have been a rout if not for the red zone stops. 5.) Brady came up small too many times today. He overthrew Edelman for what probably would have been a TD early in the game. He threw the ball out of bounds to Collie when he was open. 6.) I don't know why they put Slater in on that go route. I guess they figured that their CBs suck and would never expect he would be a target. 7.) This team missed an outside receiver today. I assume Dobson was not close enough to 100% to be a big factor. They need to get another outside guy in the offseason and hope Gronk can make it through the year. I know people will probably say that it was the loss of Welker or Woodhead, but today they wouldn't have made a difference. 8.) Congratulations to the Broncos and their fans. The Broncos outplayed and outcoached the Pats all game.
