    We lost, fair and square (mostly), to the better team today. The offense still needs to get their act together, they need to get Welker back and the OL needs to do a better job. The D, which we all worried about so much, did a solid job and will, one hopes, improve as much as possible until Mayo gets back and the youngsters/new vets get the system in their bones.

    If you want to throw a hissy about Galloway being a waste of space, go right ahead. I understand. But this team just has to make the playoffs. By then it will look much different, and much better, than it does now. In the long run, there is NO REASON to worry about this team's ability to score points. They will score. A lot. Just not today, and that stinks and all, but in the grand scheme, we'll be okay. We shall overcome.

    Breathe...

    Agreed.

    The defense played a pretty solid game. It was the O-Line that cost us the game today.

    It's a Long season guys. No need for concern just yet.

    Here, here, remember, the Jets just one "their" SuperBowl, so that's one less team to have to face...

    Seriously though, it's freakin week 2, lots more football to be played...

    To the bandwagon fans, the exit is that way ---------------->

    Thank you. Its bad enough we have the Jet trolls crawling out of their holes, but we have to put up with the nervous nellies and bandwagon jumpers jumping off.

    Very well said. I am certain we will learn a lot from this game and be the better team with the loss. We still have BB and Brady, and we are still in contention to go far season.

    GO PATS

    Great post - I was as frustrated as the next guy while watching the game. But reality is we lost, there is still a lot of football ahead of us. I'm not going to let it ruin the rest of my day.

    I will say this - I was pretty sure we would tie the game at the end there. I'm always feeling pretty good when Tom Brady has the ball in his hands with 2 minutes to go no matter how the offense looked for the rest of the game. It just wasn't meant to be today.

    With out the brady interception agaisnt the bills, the bills would only have scored 17. Today the pats held the jets to 16, so Iam feeling good about our defense.

    Did you guys watch the same game as the rest of the world? Our defense was awful. Guyton is almost slower the Bruschi. We really need another MLB, Derrek Brooks, please?

    Our O-line did the best they could, for as much as the Jets blitzed Brady didnt get sacked once. Welker not playing was such a big loss, Eidelman is no Welker but he had a solid game, the best on the team. Gallaway is a bust, he looks lost out there and Brady and him just havent clicked yet.

    Not time to panic, yet as its only week 2, but it shows how much we need Mayo to return and Brady and the WRs to click.

    To dump all the blame at the feet of the O-line is just wrong.

    The playcalling stunk tonight - anyone see Mike Martz on the Patriots sideline?

    They had good success running it...then couldn't help but go away from it.

    "We will beat you with the pass" was the stubborn mantra.

    You put Brady back there to pass 50 times a game he is going to get hit - teams are going to tee off with no threat to run the ball.

    Todays loss was a horrible mixture of lack of execution from Brady, awful penalties across the board and stagnant playcalling.

    The D did okay, in my book.

    Tom Brady was one of the worst performers for NE today. He left plays and points on the field. There was no pass rush because the Jets have a great O-line. Galloway made plays. He may not have made plays at certain points, but he caught some first downs and would have had a TD if the ball was thrown better.

    The Pats O-line was what everyone expects the to be...solid. Brady had time. Yes he was pressured, but always had time to throw before he was hit.

    A huge bright spot for NE was Edelman. In his first real chance to see action, he looked like a quasi-welker. You get this guy in there every week and he could create HUGE problems for opponents. Imagine it....the real Welker in the left slot, and Edelman in the right slot...teams would have to risk covering them with LBs, or put safeties on them and leave Moss and Galloway 1 on 1.

    A tighter performance today wins NE the game.

    Nov. 22 will be interesting.



    Side notes:

    Belichick clearly hates Ryan but still acted like a sore loser (ignored Sanchez, who said nothing all week)

    Sione Pouha for the Jets, no.91, is a dirty player....pushed Kaczur from behind onto a pile onto the ground twice after the whistle.

    Sanchez again looked like he is for real. He took a sack, Favre would have tossed it up for a pick.

    Pats are still tops in the division

    The Jets are not the dominant ground n pound running team they said they were going to be.

    It is too early panic, I'm not worried about the offense they'll get their rhythm back. The defense could be more effective if Peas decided to call a blitz once or twice a game.

    I think it's obvious that Brady isn't all the way back...yet. I think he'll be fine, but I think we were all a bit too optimistic about his recovery.

    Today, there were a lot of rushed throws, and a lot of throws off his back foot when he had time to plant. Some of that had to do with the Jets defense, which is pretty good. But a lot of it is just Tom working his way through the various mental hurdles that are a part of his comeback.

    He'll be fine, but he's not there just yet.

    We have plenty of time to get it together but the thing is im seeing alot of the same stuff that has bitten us in the past. 3 down defense (Soft Zone, No Pass Rush). And a few things that were very present last week, Timing, limited running game, O-Line play (To be fair the Jets sent everybody). We need to get it together and if I see more of the same next week i think we are in big trouble.

    That is what we said about the Miami loss last year.. Division games are crucial, we beat ourselves today... And it could come back to bite us in the end.. But it may not mean much in the end, because the defense is not a championship defense ... And the O is missing something right now..
