I thought before the Bears game we would know where this team stands as far as elite teams in the NFL..I am still wondering where they are, I have more questions than answers about this team.Don't get me wrong a win is a win but the 2-9 Lions looked like a playoff team against the Pats.. Pro's : They find ways to win,but can they do it against good teams ? Con's : No passion,emotion or sense of urgency When was the last time you saw so many penalties and mental mistakes on a Belichek coached team? The biggest concern is takeaways New England was always a team that protected the ball,not anymore. The Patriots defense allowed John Kitna 3rd and 21, 3rd and 23 and another long 3rd down play which im my opinion was horrendous. The 4th quarter when their backs were against the wall they woke up but you can't turn the switch on and off like that against a good team. My concern is Bill Belichek may be losing this team,you don't mind if they get beat by a better team,but I look at the little things like penalties,protecting the ball and tackling.The basic fundementals of football they seem to be struggling with..
