Quite often in here people refer to the Pats opponent racking up yardage and stats in 'Garbage Time' as Meh,no big deal. Why is garbage time stuff acceptable to the average fan?,Doesn't the average fan want the team to keep focus and play the full 60 minutes?,is there a reason to just totally let down the guard and let the other team slip in a little closer?,I find it concerning when the team does not go full throttle and keep the other team from doing anything that it didn't do for 3 quarters. Is it maybe some of the guys getting tired or is it just not mentally focused?,that concerns me down the stretch when playing the next 4 teams that are not exactly world beaters. In just today's games involving playoff contenders,Pittsburgh kept the pedal to the metal against Cincy and won going away,Baltimore built a lead and crushed down the Browns,The 49ers kept on getting farther and farther ahead of the Rams and didn't let up and shut them out.....I would like to see the same here on both offense and defense and not give the other team a glimmer of hope. No reason why a score like the 45-3 drubbing of the Jets last year should not occur often when the team is in position to do so unless someone is not playing hard late in the game. I just think that a good team,a team that is worthy of making it to the playoffs in hope of a Super Bowl title would be certain as well paid pros to not let up,good teams ram it down the opponents throat and don't take the foot off the gas. To win a playoff game against a MUCH better team than the Colts,this team if having a decent sized lead,better keep going until the gun sounds...I hope Belichick rams this down the guys throats in team meetings this week.
