    Brady’s great, but Patriots need a running game
    History shows pass-oriented, one-dimensional teams don’t win titles

    OPINION
    By Rich Cimini

    Updated: 10:26 p.m. CT Oct 14, 2007

    One of the worst-kept inside jokes around the NFL is Tom Brady’s weekly appearance on the Patriots’ injury report. For what seems like forever, he has appeared on the report with a mysterious shoulder ailment, which has caused many eyes to roll.

    The way things are going this season for the Patriots, they might have to tweak the ‘ol injury report. Don’t be surprised if you check your local newspaper’s agate page one day soon and see something like this:

    QB Tom Brady, right-arm fatigue, probable

    Brady is throwing like a one-armed bandit, leading one of the most prolific passing attacks in NFL history. The Patriots are 6-0, and Brady already has attempted 204 passes, including an NFL-best 21 touchdown passes. In Sunday’s 48-27 victory over the previously undefeated Cowboys, Tom Terrific became the first quarterback in history to throw at least three scores in each of his first six games.

    He’s scary good, but it raises a question: Can the Patriots continue to blow away the competition with such a one-dimensional offense?

    History says no. Sooner or later, it has to bite them, right? Every football tenet indicates that a team requires some semblance of balance to win a championship. I mean, you can expect to do the same thing over and over, and get away with it.

    Keep your opinions to yourself Rich "the New York moron" Cimini and research the facts prior to print.

    Re: New York Bias and New York Morons

    I guess he forgot that until this Sunday, we had a running game every week. Didn't we get at least 100 yds. out of Morris, Maroney, Faulk or some combination thereof each week until this one?

    Cimini is a joke - he is the one who misquoted Peter King & said Belichick wouldn't want Kerry Rhodes on his team (seems King has come down with the same disease since).

    Re: New York Bias and New York Morons

    It's kind of funny how the Pats seem to be in the NY papers more than their own teams. The Jets are awful, but the Giants are looking pretty good after a slow start. Why don't you write on your own teams, loser?

    Re: New York Bias and New York Morons

    NEP: 412 tot. plays, 204 passes, 202 rushes
    NYJ: 361 plays, 186 passes, 160 runs
    NYG: 386 plays, 210 passes, 169 runs

    NEP: 68.7 pl.pg (2), 34.0 pa.pg (12), 33.7 ru.pg (4)
    NYJ: 60.1 pl.pg (15), 31.0 pa.pg (20), 26.7 ru.pg (16)
    NYG: 64.3 pl.pg (4), 35.0 pa.pg (9), 28.2 ru.pg (13)

    Dynamically speaking, it seems that NE proportionally utilizes the run much more than either of the teams in his city. The Pats are still averaging over 141 ypg, despite the Dallas game.

    In summation:

    1 NE team: 6 wins
    2 NY teamS: 5 wins

    Re: New York Bias and New York Morons

    This was the funniest part of this football neophyte's column:

    "A pass-heavy attack also doesn’t use much clock, putting a heavier burden on your defense. That happened to the Bills teams of the early 1990s, when Jim Kelly racked up big numbers with their “K Gun” no-huddle attack. Problem was, they scored so quickly that the defense never had much time to catch its breath on the sideline."

    Did anyone show him the time of possession stats from the Dallas game?

    Pats had it for 38 minutes of that "too much passing, not enough ground control game".

    Cimini probably thought he heard Belichick "dissing" Kerry Rhodes again after the game!

    Rich Cimini is in the MISinformation business.

    Does Cimini realize how much of a laughable hack he truly is? My lord, I think he hates Belichick and the Pats more than Mangini. He constantly picks against them and makes up sh*t. It's comical more than anything. Eat another doughnut Richie.

    Re: New York Bias and New York Morons

    I dont understand why people keep forgetting this. We had one bad Running game. A game where our Starting RB was out, Our 2nd string played 1 quarter, and we had to go with our 3rd down back. One bad running game means we have no running game at all.

    Once again what are the requirements for being a sports writer?

    Yes! The Times sports section was amazing on Monday morning -- huge color photo and article on the Pats game took up the front page, while the Jets game only merited a small piece on page 5. I had to double check that it wasn't the Globe!

    The Globe???? The Times is WAAAAAAYYYYYY different than the Globe.

    The New York Times actually gives space to the Patriots.

    Going into Sunday, the Pats had the third ranked rushing offense with arguably their best RB out the previous two games. I don't know where the one-dimension comes from.

    Lest we forget, as was posted on another thread, Wade Phillips' game plan was to stop Sammy Morris, which the 'boys did (10 rushes, 14 yards). Faulk, however, did better (13 rushes, 50 yards).

    And apparently that Brady guy did alright passing, too.

    In regards to the whole time of possession thing, apparently Cimini didn't watch the game. :rolleyes:

    "If they get into a shootout with Peyton Manning & Co., especially in the sterile confines of the RCA Dome, the Patriots will lose."

    Because, um, why?

    Regardless, he's already up for Pigskin Detention on Cold, Hard Football Facts.

    Interesting. Our last game of the season is in New York. If everything fell into place, wouldn't it be something to get that undefeated season in NYC, and in Mangini's stadium (albeit not against NYJ)?

    The media for that would be fun.
