    just b n picky, aimin for perfection...brady a bit more accurate, played alot better than jets game tho, all receivers pick it up whether it b route running, catching, or goin up and gettin the da*n ball when possible aka randy moss, pick up pass rush a little more, id like to c more quick agap heat blitzes...well played game but always room for improvement...we r going to have to get pressure on flacco next week, and i think blitzing will b beneficial n both the passing and run game...brady and receivers hopefully will continue to improve like they did this week...tightends and oline surprised me..everyone1 on the same page and this team is by far the superbowl favorite...btw obrien is fine as the coordinator

    Brady missed some open guys.

    Get away from the pass-run-pass pattern, always seems to leave us in 3rd and long.

    Less runs for Taylor when we're up 16 in the 4th quarter so I may breathe easier.

    brady needs to calm the hell down IMO. Everyone loved the fiery yelling he demonstrated, count me in the minority. He himself missed several throws with ample time. he needs to get in his mind that he hasnt played football for 1 full season and injury or no injury its going to take time.
    He has played with a worser receiving crew of caldwell and company and made it work so he should be patient with a better set of WRs now.
    Honestly if manning did this today we would be all up in arms about the attitude.Just my 2 cents. I know iam going to get killed now.:)

    Areas of improvement:

    1. Red zone efficiency
    2. Brady accuracy and sync with receivers
    3. Pass rush
    4. Special teams coverage

    Otherwise, pretty fine performance.

    It was a comedy of errors with Brady missing wide open WR and receivers dropping easy catches.

    We need more pass rush and the DBs need to get their hands on the ball, not only have we not had an INT, we haven't even had an "almost" INT all year. I like our DBs but it's getting a little disconcerting.

    Re: improvements needed from today

    I think others have nailed the needed improvements, but just to emphasize:

    1. Receiver's catching balls
    2. Special teams kickoff coverage
    3. Red zone efficiency
    4. Brady's accuracy
    5. More aggressive pass rush

    Likewise.

    Re: improvements needed from today

    red zone for sure, it killed em last week against the jets and it will kill them again if it doesnt get fixed. brady and the WRs do need to get their timing right..this is getting old. also brady tends to get angry a lot it seems when things dont go well. i remember a game in miami back in 06 where he was just screaming at his players. there are a number of other games as well. he just gets frustrated sometimes.

    Re: improvements needed from today

    You got it right with #1 (and it is #1). 1 for 5 with Atlanta, 0 for 3 with the Jets, 1 for 4 with Buff. 2 for 12 in the red zone. 17% TD conversion rate in the red zone? That is ugly! This issue reigns supreme over everything else. If we don't start scoring TD's I'd expect to see the "what needs improvement" list grow. Scoring TD's is a cure all (or a really good band aid) for other ills.

    yup, and i think with welker cumn back soon, brady getting back on track, brady running it in when the d only rushes three or four, galloway optimistically improving his timing and hands, and more effort from moss then we will b scoring a lot more tds from the redzone..

    Re: improvements needed from today

    I agree 100% with your 4 items and there order. I would add that, at some point, the defensive backs are going to need to break on the ball and make an interception. The coverage was solid enough today, but through 3 games we have zero interceptions. Maybe the interceptions will come with more of a pass rush, but it's been rare that we could even say a db was close to getting a pick this season.

    Re: improvements needed from today

    Generally, we've faced pretty smart QBs this season that don't throw a lot of interceptions. I think that as the defense gets more comfortable, they'll face more passers that make the occasional errant throw or try and force it, leading to more interceptions. Our offense putting opposing teams in the hole is a big factor in this, IMO.
