Jeez. That first quarter was the Denver playoff game of a few years ago times twenty million. What an absolute fiasco. --The loss of Welker hurt as much as the worst-case predictions said. Just an irreplaceable guy. Edelman definitely has a future, thoughâ€”how about that 4th and 7 that was called back? Guy would Not. Be. Denied. Awesome. --Brady is hurt, and if he isnâ€™t, he oughta be. Just looked lost out there. Is it the lack of receivers? A lot of this is hard to tell on TV. He was pressured a lot, but other times he had all day. And I feel I have to say this, if only because his leadership has been praised for so long by so many. Where is the passionate leader of years past? I know heâ€™s not a kid anymore, but the guy did not exactly look inspiring on the sidelines. --Itâ€™s been said everywhere, but itâ€™s true. The offensive play calling is so painful, I still wonder if changing coordinators alone could have made a difference. Just no coherence whatsoever. --It didnâ€™t help that the offensive line didnâ€™t play well. I was confident that would be an absolute strength of this team through the playoffs. Guess not. --And I thought the Pats could stop the run? You tell me before the game the Ravens pass for 34 yards Iâ€™d assume weâ€™d be planning for the Chargers. --The flat, abysmal, pathetic display at the start certainly called out for Kevin Faulk. The guyâ€™s just a pro. You wonder how much longer he can perform at this level. Still, having him be the top back the whole game? To me, the game effectively ended with the first series of the second half, when they ran that little delay to him again. And again. I mean, enough already. --Iâ€™m sorry Maroney fumbled a couple of times, but one carry? Did he murder someone? Taylor had 2? --Tough to miss his only FG of the playoffs. Bad ending to a good year. --Get a punter already. --I hate to think it, but I canâ€™t shake the feeling that the Bill Belichick of 2001 could have gotten a lot more out of this team. --I donâ€™t know, sure thereâ€™s a lot more. Thereâ€™s a lot of specific offseason stuff to discuss, which Iâ€™ll leave to other threadsâ€”I suppose some of this could be a jumping off point. Good to vent anyway. --BTW, maybe I'm a homer. Never thought I was, but this game surprised me.
