    The Oline.

    They continue to come up small in the playoffs. Cost us a title in 07 and they're straight getting their ass whooped here. We need to replace Koppen, the man is done he simply cannot handle an elite DT. We can improve over Neal, im tired of light wasting everyones time on this roster. I'd die for a line I could trust.

    Blame it on adjustments all you want, but all I'm seeing is Brady on the ground. Jesus could bless this team and they simply aren't gonna get 3 points playing this way. Yet again the line is killing us in the postseason. Just sayin.

    they get exposed later in the season? Have we not always said Brady makes them look better than they are? When it comes to elie defenses, this happens

    They demolished pretty much this same defense in Week 13. So, again, what changed?

    while the OL was bad today, I still think that the Pats win if not for 1) benching Welker in the first series and 2) fake punt at the end of the first half. Both were ridiculous, flat-out awful decisions by Belichick.

    Even when Brady had tome to throw he had no one open. The Jests blanketed the Pats skill players all game long and rendered them totally ineffective. Whether that is a skill player problem or a playcalling problem I don't know but it needs to be fixed going forward because the Jests aren't leaving the division anytime soon!

    Look, I'm ALL about the lines. Good lines, you win. But how bad did they play?

    I saw Brady multiple times checking out the receivers like a half dozen times. Nobody open. Is that on the line? Don't think so.

    I agree. Aside from the blind side blitz in the first half, the rest were coverage sacks.

    I felt Brady had a lot more time later in the 3rd/4th quarters, but didn't have much time prior to that, which is why the majority of our points were posted in the second half. The line seemed to stabilize a bit as the game went on.

    Brady has to play better as well, and so far Im still waiting for Tate to show any sort of consistency because the Jets had no fear of getting beat deep today.

    Brady had all day to throw AND he was sacked 5 or so times.

    That's a triumph for the defense.

    Needed to run the ball more. Too much running away from people today, not enough running at them. Brady $ucked tday. He checked to the pass way too much in the first half Quite frankly by the second half it was to late. Staf and the QB not the OL. Sure should they try to make a couple upgrades yeah. Not the lines fault today.....

    The whole offensive line sucked today when it mattered as did Brady.. not to mention the ridiculous calls to keep the Law Firm on the sideline with Danny Woodhead out there for lots of snaps.

    The Patriots were pathetic today. The Jets got into their heads and we tried all the bull**** tricks etc instead of sticking to what won us games in the first place.

    We had no answer for their defense, and our game plan played right into the Jets strength. Their secondary just mans up well against our WRs, we really had no one open, and when we did Brady was put in a situation where he'd have to make a difficult throw with poor footing, which is something he won't do.

    Too bad the o-line is only getting older without any replacements on board. Unless the Pats spend all of their 1st-2nd round draft picks on offensive linemen, which BB won't because he has to "outsmart" everyone else and trade down 20 times, the o-line will continue to be a problem in big games.

    They gotta get mankins back though. Wrestling that fumble away from 5 jets was clutch. Is that mike pouncey kid as good as his brother?

    The sacks were more due to receivers not getting open than the OLs blocking.
    Did Hernandez show up today?
