    I never bash the patriots over a loss, but lets be honest the pats D is going to give up some points, which means that the Brady is going to be throwing all year just like the last few games. We also know that for some reason they are really not going to run the ball even if they are winning by a few scores. I think all of that translates into a ton of TD...I also think this may translate into more pics than we normally see from Brady. (Hopefully that part is wrong though)

    This backs up the thread I started a couple weeks ago that this defense will be leaning on Brady and the offense once again.

    Whether people like it or not,the truth is that we are now what we were laughing about over 4 years ago......we are the Indianapolis Colts of the mid decade.....all offense,little defense

    Any team plays to their strengths.. and the Patriots are no different.

    Could their Defense be better, of course, but with Brady at the helm that is where we will place most of our assets.

    That's the truth. Every one fears this offense, no one fears this defense.

    In fairness to the Colts (who I hate), they did win a Super Bowl in the mid decade (2006). Just saying ;)

    Ironically they won that super bowl because of defense. Bob Sanders went on a freakin rampage that playoff run. Maybe Pat Chung will be our Bob Sanders. I'd be happy with one more super bowl :D (for a while) .

    Pats defenses always get better throughout the year and in the second half of the season. This has been the trend for the past 3-4 years

    Defense usually wins champisonships. Just sayin'.

    Brady could throw for only 20 td's.....I don't care about the individual accolades. Just bring me a championship. Screw gaudy records. I want the trophy.

    I sadly think our Lombardi days are over. Those 01-03-04 teams were different...great defense, great leadership, great intangibles, clutch play.

    I see a one and done again this year...I'm not even getting myself worked up over it.

    I just watch because I love football and the Pats are my home team.

    To get back to the OP...I see about 40 TD, 14 INT, and 5,000 yards (possibly breaking Marino's single season yardage record.) But I would trade all of that and last year's MVP and stats for one more Lombardi.

    You expect 34 yr old Brady to keep up with projected 709 Pass attempts this season and somehow be able to match his 2007 stats ?

    His avg year in his 9 full seasons is 533 attempts, 11.4 int's. So far he has 133 attempts. So, basically you expect him to throw 39 TD's and 9 ints in 576 more attempts over 13 games

    @ 50 TD This would mean 3TD/game throwing to couple trio of 30 something WR's, a TE, and another TE who is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

    Wow, you sure do have some lofty thoughts.
    At the rate Brady is throwing his arm will be a wet noodle by week 12, provided he does not get injured trying to have 200+ more pass attempts than last year which would equate to passing attempts of 5 more games vs his avg season.

    Your logic makes sense. That said, I do think the D will come along. I don't think you can flick a switch and change schemes and personnel, especially with no offseason. I know I'm in the minority, but I think we're going to see a good push and more blitzes by seasons end. I don't care if he doesn't throw another TD, just give us winds and a shot in the playoffs.

    To be more specific, we may have a ton of offense, but it wimps out in the clutch. THAT is what we are now and what PManning and the Colts have been for the better part of the past decade.

    I wouldn't call one game a trend. The offense had moved well. It was 4 picks that cost us the game, especially when we were driving for scores.

    Actually it was the inability to play balanced ball control offense that cost the game. Up 21-0 and if the OC does not know how to milk the clock and mix up play calling with balanced pass and run, knowing his defense is depleted then he belongs in HS football

    There wasn't an INT on the Bills last drive of the game when Brady made up for his picks by tying the game only to have the defensive front look like scrubs from a college team as Fred Jackson went practically untouched to the goalline.

    The defense didn't help the cause,thats for sure and who knows if NE wins the coin toss in OT and wins the game.

    Brady was only a partial reason for the loss.

    You think the 3 scoring drives Buffalo had when starting with field position of their own 10 or worse had something to do with it too?

    we all know everyone would trade stats for a ring bla bla bla..I was just pointing out something that could happen..

    also, saying Brady's arm wont be able to hold up is a joke. He is a well conditioned athlete.

    No Jersey Selected

    With the defense struggling and injured the way that it is, I would hope that we turn to the run much more than we have in the first few weeks to burn up T.O.P. as much as possible and keep the defense off the field. The fact that Belichick actually WANTED the defense to give up the TD yesterday says a lot. This team is all offense right now and the offense is all pass. If we stick to that formula and keep relying on the opposing offense to shoot itself in the foot in the red zone, we aren't going to sniff the Super Bowl again any time soon.

    WITH that being said, all of these problems can be corrected. O'Brien can turn to the run more (I liked the way Ridley looked yesterday and was baffled when they took him out of the game) which will also open up the play action pass. On top of that, key injuries to the defensive front should be returning. Further, this is a great coaching opportunity for one of the best in the game, ala the Browns loss last year. I expect Belichick to act accordingly.
