    OK. Please keep your rants to yourself. Focus on the facts of the game please. Give credit where it's due.

    Enjoy..

    THEY WON


    There. No more saying that this was a "weak win" or that "this team is destined to fail." You would be wrong.

    The tackling today was some of the worst I've seen from this team in the BB era, that needs to improve.

    The middle of the field is always wide open when we're in zone.

    The offense yet again has an opportunity to ice the game and shoots themselves in the foot.

    That said a win is a win, learn from it and move on to Indianapolis.

    Not all wins are created equal. This win shows the team still has the same deficiencies that have been detrimental to them winning another title in the last 6 years. It IS discouraging to see such a porous secondary put us on the edge of our seat once again. If you say you feel just as confident about this team's perspectives after this win as you did two Sundays ago against the Rams, you are probably lying to yourself.

    It amazes me how many people assume late close games are automatic losses. More often than not this season, the Pats have gotten a clutch play right when they need one.

    Patriots need to do something about opposing TEs running amok through their zone D.

    Tackling could have been better but CJ Spiller is quick and shifty, he makes people look stupid.

    Fouts is an azzhat

    Some people in this thread will also try to pin this one on the offense, so I'll just get ahead of them here and say that when you score 37 points, you should win the game. They had what? 2 drives in which they didn't score? They did their job.

    I do because they have a new cornerback coming aboard and last year they improved quite a bit in the second half, once Talibs here they may start to play better as a unit.

    Very frustrating win. But a WIN. I'll take it.

    Not feeling optimistic for the rest of the year with this D. Patricia? What, there wasn't a coordinator available named Sally? ;)

    They got a clutch play against the Jets and the Bills, and they let the other team march right down the field and score against the Ravens and Seahawks. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect that a team that has been moving the ball on you defense all game long will score when down 6 with 2 minutes to go.

    I cannot wait for Hernandez to come back. Branch and Edelman are so bad. And Welker is right where he left off the last super bowl....dropping everything. So many drops today my gawd!

    On the bright side, LOLphins got blown out and we're in full control of the division.

    Agreed mostly. However, this one really comes down to a Fitzpatrick anti-clutch moment rather than a clutch defensive moment, doesn't it?

    But those are all circumstances that may or may not happen. Watching this game, if you were cool all the way thinking "don't worry, Talib will get here soon and the secondary will improve as the year goes on, I'm pretty sure", you might be a robot.

    Rough day for the Lb's. Mayo, Spikes and Hightower all had a bad day at the office. Now having said that. Spikes at the end of games that are close is clutch. Popped the ball lose on Jackson(tho recovered by the bills)..

    McC was huge. Two forced turnovers to stop 2 TD's.

    I've been on McCourty's side all along this season. This game has to buy him some leeway from the haters.
