    Dear Bill:

    Please put my fears to rest. Tell me you've taken the fake punt keys away from Chung and got Doug Flutie to drop kick them into the Charles River.

    Funny how no one seems to remember the Denver (rematch) Divisional romp last year, but every last details of 2010 sticks.

    The fake punt is a big detail of that game, but your point still stands. Maybe it's because people find HOU to be a lot more talented than DEN last year, therefore more of a threat? I'm confident the Patriots will win and I'm not going to delve into any playoff rematch game they've lost (DEN 2005, BAL 2009, NYG 2007, NYJ 2010). This year is this year and if the Patriots play like they're capable, they will win.

    The play was there for the taking, he just screwed it up.

    That being said, I do not think we will need any gimmicks. Houston will, and we need to be ready for THOSE.

    Maybe the OP couldn't decide between the "Anybody Else have a Bad feeling?? " thread and the "What's with this board come playoff time? " thread.

    It doesn't matter if the play was open, it was a dumb decision at that point in time of that game. It should not have been tried at all.

    Apparently challenging for second year players too.

    I thought I read that Chung made the wrong call. That's why he wasn't ready for the snap: he was expecting the ball to go to Mesko.

    Hey, if during their preparations this week, they see something and they know when it is to be called, go for it!
    If its Nate Ebner, so be it.
    I trust that the play being called is the right now, it simply comes down to execution. I would never allow my current strategy to be determined by a play that occurred in 2010.

    Play smart! Play aggressive! Execute!

    Yup.

    Between Katula and Chung, Chung is the one still on the team.

    I considered Denver a bye last year…never in the history of the NFL has a team had a weaker Divisional opponent (except the 2010 Jets and we stuck that up).
    The Patriots have only 2 home playoff losses in THIRTY YEARS. To have one to the Jets makes it that much more painful. So yes, I will remember 2010 like 2006, 2007 and 2011.

    Who will be his replacement? And I do agree. Just need a better replacement first.

    We need a thread where those two argumentative guys criticize someone's argument and/or logic. That's why we all come to this board and pay $18 a year for the privilege. More pissing matches!

    James Sanders was a better safety than Chung.

    Chung kills me sometimes but he's had his moments.

    Good for a Rodney Harrison hit every once in awhile. It's not my money and it sure rattles the other teams receivers.

    Bad call but, had it worked pats may have another lombardi. One play can make all the difference. Hopefully not this week and pats get accused of running up the score again.

    Bostonians are just naturally negative.


    While we are on the subject of Patrick Chung, however. I've been going through a lot of my own self created highlight tapes.

    In Miami in 2010 Patrick Chung had two blocked kicks (one FG, one punt) and a pick six. Quite a good day.

    Certainly had some good hits against the Jags this year. Not to mention a great hit on Hakeem Nicks in last year's Super Bowl.

    If I'm not mistaken he didn't catch another ball the rest of the SB.

    That's what he's here for. He'a got a terrible rep because the past couple years he's been playing more coverage when he's more suited to be a SS.

    The dude needs to stay off of special teams and any other play that is designed to get the ball in his hands.

    He makes me very very nervous.

    Thank god for Nink. yesterday cause were the Texans to get that ball yesterday that game gets way more exciting than it needed to be.

    He is a SS, let him play SS. Let him hit people.

    Oh how much I'd love to see Chung lay a hit on Kaep.

    Doesn't cover well and not big enough to be a consistent force in the box. That's why he's a backup.

    Uh yeah keep this guy as far from the field as possible. That was almost his 2nd KILLER ST play in postseason play. Texans get that onsides at 5 minutes in just a 10 point game and we're in a world of trouble.
