Are you a member of the Maroon Platoon? There seems to be a bunch of fans who are still a long way from Reality, who think that if only OC had played tonight we would have won. I keep thinking people will realize how silly it is to blame tonight's defensive play on an offensive player, but there you go. If I were masochist enough to log in this week, I'd expect to see a week of stuff like this (there are others): You folks (Not just IH, but all the others who think that playing OC or some vet like Simms or Culpepper would have changed the outcomes of the Dolphin or Charger games) were misguided then, and you have learned nothing since. If you replace all the players who did not play well tonight, there would be about 8 players on the team - the inactives + Ghost. You have become spoiled by a 16-0 season, and forgot how we played in 2001-2007. You don't will every game in today's NFL. Get over last year. Seriously. Only a maroon would blame zero pressure on Rivers on Cassel. We got bad play tonight from the: QB DTs DEs LBs Ss CBs P Punt coverage KO coverage OL TE WR Looking at that and saying the the problem is ONE of the 40+ plyers who sucked tonight is simply a display of football ignorance. Cassel is the QB because he gives the Patriots the best chance of winning. This wasn't true last year, and won't be true next year, but it is true this week ane next week and the week after, and until you comprehend this simple fact, you will remain a member of the Maroon Platoon.
