All right everyone - back away from the ledge.
I can't wait to see Vollmer and Light bookending the line. I think with a bit more time, we'll still see Brady circa 2007. The only way we will do anything this year is to keep the other team's offense on the sidelines.
2nd seed? 4th seed? Does it matter? This D is not going to get it done anytime soon.
Charlie Weis come on down! Also, can we kick Dean Pisses to the curb now and let Bill run the defense? Ugly game.
Nothing to really say, you need to win a quality game on the road, and we better beat Miami next week or we are backing in the playoffs, and then back right out..
We are not a great football team anymore... We have a great coach ,and a great Qb.. .Both had bad nights...
This was probably the worst performence of the Brady led Pats since, I would say 05 in Denver.. Tonight was the most big plays the defense has given up...
If dont get the bye, its going to be a early exit , except if we play Cincy on the road..
Congrats to the Saints .
I think we do not have,this year, that extra weapon this year to beat elite teams.
Our D isn'tvery bad , but just average , maybe they will be good next year.
We need fresh blood in management too .Moss has shown his age today.
I still think Nunn is superior than stanback.
Kaczur resigning was more of an insurance than a vote of confidence. We could lose Neal, and makins and then Light next year. We needed a vet presence ala Sanders.
Mankins needs to be resigned...
i miss Matt Cassel. the Pats had a bright future with him at the helm. they were also a better team last year.
:rofl: good one Ian ! I can go to bed thinking about that !
I wont get into fire Dean Pees, but Al Groh and Charlie Weis are coaches Belichick needs to help him out..
They laid an egg, but I'm not convinced that this game represents what the Pats are. It's an outlier for sure. Our D isn't really that bad, and Brady isn't really that bad. It was a big game and the boys choked.
None of the next five games scare me. We go 12-4 and get the 2 seed.
Some of you guys have to remember who we played tonight. We won't be seeing an offense like this again until the Super Bowl.
Hey look, we have a running game. Well, let's get away from that now that we have the lead, and let's get predictable!
LoMo played his ass off, especially in the 1st half. Sadly, the lack of consistent run blocking and abandonment of the run game eventually reared their ugly heads.
3rd/4th down playcalling is getting so predictable if we need more than 2 yds. Dbs are just not afraid of our Wrs getting behind them. Short crossing routes and that's it.
I just don't know what our D is built for. D-line can't rush the passer. CBs can't blitz well, can't hit well, and can basically just get in the vicinity of WRs. LBs seem too big to really handle passing teams. Our safeties are a bright spot, as is Big Vince.
Ok ask did you ask your mom if you can stay up tonight???
[sarcasm] "BUT, BUT, Kaczur just got an extension and Dante REALLY likes him! That means he's really good!" [/end sarcasm]
Kaczur's man was constantly in the backfield tonight when Neal was out of the game. That said, I'm not sure if Vollmer would do any better. We need an OC in the game that can actually call plays that aren't completely predictable as well.
We can beat any team. We out played the Colts whom most believe are the best in the AFC without Banta Cain. We can beat them in the play-offs and get lucky with the Saints in the SB...Remember we played them in a dome. Those fans were over pumped. They are better but in neutral grounds, we can get lucky.
Your right, we will be seeing it when the Colts do it to us in the AFC title game..
BTW, holy crap the Saints are solid in all 3 phases.
The Patriots had an easy schedule last year.That team would win 8 games with this years schedule.
Neal hurt again tonight?
Seems like he gets hurt CONSTANTLY, and they suck bag when he's not in there..they REALLY need to fix that OL, it is HORRIBLE, and it's inexcusable.
11-5 last year and we go home
... this year we can go 10-6 and coast into the playoffs ... who wouda thunk it?
You really replied him?
Brady simply does not have it vs. good teams anymore. He is def not top 5 anymore. Looks like Moss has either lost it or doesnt care anymore also.
I think listening to Belichick , he sound like he knows they were out matched.. he is more outgoing for a loss in his press confrence...
we got our asses kicked by a better team. Bury it and get ready for Miami, but this team needs to improve tremendously if we want to do anything in the playoffs. We'll need an 08 Cardinals like run with the way our defense looks right now.
So brady is the entire team? Yes he sucked but so did the oline.The entire team played like ****. NOT JUST BRADY!!!!!!
BB press conference: " WE MADE JUST TOO MANY MISTAKES."
I agree with you , coach.
Congrats to the Saints .
Thankfully i only saw the first half....and i had the sound off. That was a good thing becasue i could watch with out being distracted by the three stooges.
Obviously we don't have a pass rush.
Brady uncomfortable, the saints didn't seem worried about our passing game they seemed to know what to expect.
Conversaly WE didn't seem to know what was coming from the Saint's offense. And if we did we couldn't do anything about it.
This is not a SB team as constructed, it just doesn't have the D-line to put any pressure on the QB.
Brady didn't suck. The o-line sucked. His last pick wasn't bad but we needed to score fast to stand a chance...The O-Line got schooled. Maybe because Light missed some games but Kaczur was a turnstile.
The analyst set is on the field or blue board?
