    Very satisfying win, and I'm stoked about the defensive and special teams TDs.

    Love it :cool:

    A repeat of the 3rd quarter for the full 60 minutes on Thursday would be perfect.

    Great win. Once the D made adjustments, hard to find anything but good out there. Excellent performance in all 3 aspects.

    That said, it's one win and we have a long way to go. No reason this team shouldn't be 9-3 heading into the showdowns vs. Houston and SF.

    That was awesome. I must say, though, that for all his struggling today, Luck is gonna be GREAT.

    Don't get too high, nor too low. Great game, but before we think the 2ndary is magically fixed, they gotta keep building and putting together good performances consistently.

    I thought after a rough couple of drives that the Patriots D settled down well today.

    Realistically, those two completions Luck made against Talib early (inc one for the TD) were just unreal throws and our new CB was in very tight coverage on both.

    Strange comparison but Luck reminds me of Fitzpatrick - he takes ALOT of risks with the ball - he slings the ball regularly into very tight double or triple coverage - eventually, as it did tonight, the odds are going to catch up with him with turnovers.

    I thought the D mixed it up nicely, although the Colts did run the ball well early they did a better job through the key moments of the 2nd and 3rd quarters when this game was still a contest.

    Some of our more critical posters may well point to the passing yards conceded today - though its fair to say alot of it was given up in garbage time when the result was beyond doubt.

    Ridley stayed strong today - as well as the replacement guards played in pass protection, they opened up vey little in the running game for him - he was regularly hit at the LOS or behind it - doing well to spin out of tackles and gain something positive.

    Good to see Gronk looking pretty close to 100% again - with his catch radius he is a machine down the seams.

    LLoyd has another nice game out-wide - its just a shame that the one part of game that Brady's game that needs improvement is the deep bomb down the sideline - he overthrows this so often I never really expect him to complete one.

    Excellent game overall - all 3 phases played good complimentary football when this game was being decided.

    Game ball?

    Julian Edelman.

    Stay well Edelperson.

    I'm sure this has been addressed in one or more of the other threads, but I'm on my way out the door and I was wondering if anyone heard anything as to why Gronkowski went to the locker room early?

    Now that JETSies won a game, we will be hearing from classless JETS and their loud mouth coach on how they will beat us.

    The Pats defense, when they finally starting putting pressure on Luck, really made things happen today.

    Talib showed why we picked him up.

    Dennard played very good today.

    The defense forced 4 fumbles today, recovering one. That was along with the 3 interceptions, 2 for TDs. This team leads the league in turnover ratio by a wide margin now.

    Ninkovich continued to play really well despite being overly aggressive on a couple of plays.. Same with Spikes..

    The call on Mayo was BS. It was identical to the one by Spikes on Fitzpatrick except that Spikes momentum tore off Fitzpatrick's helmet.

    Edelman had the 2nd best game of his career. 2 Punt returns for 49+ yards. One for a TD. A rush for 47 yards that was just 3 shy of a TD. And a reception for a TD..

    Gronk was Gronk with 2 more TDs.

    McDonald and Thomas had their good and bad moments. I was very surprised that they didn't do a better job blocking inside for the run. That was why Ridley's running suffered today. The inside run just wasn't there and it kept the Colts DEs out on the wings to stop the outside runs.

    Welker was Welker. I know they can't sign a new contract until after the SB, but give the man 3 years and 27 Mill with 15 guaranteed already. He's worth every penny.

    Lloyd played a good game.

    We didn't see much from Woodhead, but then, we didn't need to.

    I was surprised at how few 2 and 3 TE sets we saw early in the game.

    Assuming everyone's healthy, my only regret is that they didn't go for two to try for 60. Or that Luck's final INT wasn't run back for a score.

    Pats defensive unit was VERY VERY impressive!
    Talib and Dennard made big plays on defense.
    Luck was visibly deflated after Talib's pick six.
    Edelman made an impact on special teams as well as offense.
    Call me crazy but I kinda like that guy! ;)

    Brady was his usually masterful self, in control of the game from start to finish.
    59-24 final score. Just a lot of good things to take out of this game.
    The Pats can build on this and hopefully this is a momentum builder that signals finishing the season strong and possibly even running the table!

    I really HOPE that was not the ONLY thing you got out of this game. A Pats momentous victory and you managed to pull out the only negative? Fans in New England just can't be pleased. Do you realize how spoiled you sound?

    ST teams had a huge impact today...relative dif between the two was more than you would have expected.

    The Pats clearly did so much of a better job making Luck's youth hurt him than other teams have done. Once the Pats had it figured out, jumped his snap count constantly and as simple a thing as it sounds like to stop, once they started the Pats did it all game long.

    Considering the rust and lack of experience in this defense, Talib was terrific...truly had an impact. Should finally put to rest the idea that at least on defense, the problem is the coaching. It is and has been the talent.

    Going down when he did was the right call. The game was already over. No need to continue to rub it in..

    I agree going down was the right thing to do.

    Still wish he had ran it back. I wanted to see the Colts be even more embarrassed.

    Really liked what i saw from Talib/Dennard/Mccourty. Hopefully they'll build on this.

    We could use a LB with speed.

    I think that it's obvious (despite what some think) that if they can get him the ball in space, he can be extrememly dangerous.

    The bubble and jailbreak screens work great with him, and he is by far our best punt returner.

    He isn't going to see the ball too often lined up as a traditional WR running various options in the route tree, some due to the fact that we have so many weapons and some due to the fact that he doesn't fully seem to grasp the offense/have the particular skillset to be a "traditional" WR.

    They need to continue to be creative and try and get him the ball a handful of times though, because it will eventually pay off like we saw today.

    The kid has good effort, slick moves, and a good football work ethic. He made at least 2-3 very nice conversions on longer 3rd downs IIRC.

    Happy to win big. Talib looked good, even when he got beat on plays he had really good coverage. After the first two touchdowns I thought it was going to be 61-59 by the end of the game but Talib's pick-six changed the game.

    stupid reply. using rape in the context the poster did is offensive and ignorant. broaden your vocab and you won't have that problem.

    Great all-around team effort. The defense made plays. Special teams was tremendous and the offense did not take its foot off the gas.

    I know I am probably in the minority with my opinion of Luck but here goes.

    He is a really good quarterback with a chance to be great some day. I do not get how so many media pundits are already saying he is a hall of famer. Most of his best plays have come outside the pocket and running the ball in the endzone.

    He is not as bad as the Pats made him look today, but he is nowhere near the class of Brady, Rodgers, Brees, either Manning, Big Ben, etc. He did not really take over a "2" win team; the Colts tanked so they could draft him. The Colts had 5 or 6 win talent last year.

    Sorry about the tanget, but back to the Pats. The offense was efficient and the defense tackled much better and did not give up as many big plays. There are a few things I took away from the game:

    1) Edelman really stepped up and played amazing. He is dangerous with the ball in his hands in the open field and seems to be a threat to take it to the house at any time.

    2) Brady played great. He avoided pressure and made some great reads and throws. The best part was his efficiency on third down. I did not look up the stats, but he made several clutch throws to keep drives alive.

    3) Welker, Gronk and Lloyd. They all played really well and did not drop any gimmies. Gronk, in particular, was a one man wrecking crew.

    4) The secondary, especially Dennard and Talib, took advantage of bad throws and made Luck pay. The front 7 got some pressure and forced some bad throws.

    Overall it was a very enjoyable game and I look forward to win #8 against the Jets on Thanksgiving.
