everyone wants to blame our defense, especially because they gave up a TD on the giants last possession. they like to pick on them because they're old. and yes i have doubts about harrison and bruschi, but for the most part the defense as a whole played well enough to win. they held the giants to 17 points, their lowest point total in 4 post season games. our offense let us down by only scoring 14 and keeping the defense on the field too much. prior to our 2nd TD with less than 3 mins to go, we had only scored once, and that was a TD on our opening drive. i think 4 reasons explain the offensive letdown: - lack of running game - teams game planning against moss - brady losing some sharpness in the post season - uncharacteristically bad oline play of these i think lack of running game was the biggest problem. if we had a running game we could sustain longer drives, take pressure off brady and open up more deep plays for moss. the bad oline play i'm guessing was a combination of injured LG, giants strong front 7 and lack of a running game and RBs that can help in pass protection. w/o calling out names, all i can say is we need to upgrade our RB situation and fast. this isn't getting it done and we'll have a much tougher go of it next season now that teams have figured out how to game plan for us.
