    I wonder if Brady and BB will be called "chicken littles" after the post game presser.

    I really have nothing more to say than thank you Tom Brady and would it kill the Patriots defense to close out a game and clamp down against an inferior and pathetic opponent?

    Why do they insist on playing the prevent crap at the start of games and at the end? Last week and this week showed that in the middle of games they can perform well as a defensive unit...then as soon as the 4th quarter starts everyone starts playing off and the linebackers hold back.

    McCourty was just starting to come good again before his injury, today he looked a bit rusty so the game time will do him good. Hopefully Spikes, Chung & Fletcher are back next week and the defense puts in a 60 minute effort, not 30 minutes.

    The 4th QB to hand them a game this year, and the morons on JI have the nerve to say the Patriots are lucky.

    I wish I had this kind of attitude.

    I can't help but be concerned about the defense's poor play against the league's worst offense.

    Downright horrendous. I'm just glad we won and got out with any major injuries.

    Major props to McDonald for playing a flawless game under center.

    If they have a 4 TD lead they can.

    In that vein, TFB and the offense were asleep their last 2 drives

    I agree with you. Belichick took his foot off the gas and the team overall got complacent. The Pats still do not have a grind it out running game (ala Corey Dillon) late in the game to keep drives alive and the clock running. Bring in Hoyer to run out the clock and hand off the ball....only problem is...our OL can't get it done...ridley goes nowhere and we have to punt. Although Colts came back in so called "garbage time"....they were one onside kick away from possibly tying the game and heading into OT. Our secondary was pathetic late in the game....just downright embarrassing.

    Glad for the win, but the 7 pt. margin, the way it got there and the impending Jets win rob me of anything resembling enjoyment... On to next week!

    they wont, the defense took their foot off the pedal because they were leading 31-3

    200 of their yards were in Garbage time..Its dissapointing that they wont play full 60minutes, but too much is made of the yards given up when the game was already won...Why Risk injury to any of your players against the colts?

    people complain when we run up the score, they complain when we take our foot off the pedal

    All I can say is One and Done looks likely right now unless the offense puts up 40 points in the playoffs in their first matchup.

    This defense gives you hope one week and then sinks to lower depths the next,I think this comes from a variety of things including injuries which spawns new players in positions almost every week thus inconsistency will continue until we get 11 guys on defense that play together at least a few weeks in a row.....I don't see that this year,it will remain a topsy turvy defense until next year at the earliest.

    BTW: Matt Slater needs to remain on STs,he is not as multi talented as Edelman has shown in a few plays.

    surely because Baltimore and Pittsburgh have comparable defenses to the Colts.

    thats it, McCourty didn't want to risk injury so he let himself get beat and decided not to look for the ball...

    I've made up excuses every week for this defense, and I've held the truth in way too long. The defense sucks. The only reason they appear to be better than the stats suggest is because they are playing poor offenses, who are dropping passes or just plain playing poor. I can't take anymore of this. Brady can't play every game perfect or score 30+ every game, especially when playing good defenses in the playoffs. They gotta start finding talent - other than Wilfork, Carter, Mayo, Arrington and Ninkovich, this defense sucks. And it's getting painful to watch, this game should've been a blowout. Even the Saints D continued to play in garbage time against the Colts, that's just no excuse to me. The Eagles game should've been a shootout but the wide open DeSean Jackson kept dropping all the passes, another reason why this Pats D sucks!

    Wasn't his point that the Patriots will probably not have a 4 TD lead against the leagues 3rd and 4th defense in terms of PPG and 2nd and 3rd in terms of YPG?

    Very disappointed in the defensive effort in the 4th quarter. They guys up front weren't pressuring the QB. The zones were sloppy. As were the jams.. I will say this, Orlovsky and Garcon made some very nice plays.

    The game is 60 min for a reason and you gotta play the entire game. You can guarantee that BB is going to be giving the Defense an earful and they won't get the extra day off.

    You won't win every game by 30 that you should. GB struggled with some bad teams like the Vikings, the Steelers barely beat this same Colts team. We got a big lead and got lazy, not a major concern to me as a game like Pittsburgh where we kept having shots to get back into the game and the D kept giving up play after play.

    Running 5 WR sets with a huge 4th quarter lead is taking the foot off the pedal? I thought it was strange (stupid) offensive play calling.

    Maybe they were practicing something?

    You clearly don't know what the prevent defense looks like. The Pats were not in the prevent early and late.

    I wonder why Edelperson wasn't playing the slot receiver or did I miss him?

    Then it's horrible coaching if the defense can't come into a game ready or keep concentrating in the 4th quarter and make sure the game is won.

    They show it in the middle of games pretty much every week that they can stop offenses, then they just give in once the 4th quarter starts.

    I think it was because of Las Vegas. Whoever bet on that Pats can cover 21 pts probably hitting their heads in the wall right now.

    exactly, anyone think they are going to play that soft against a good team? they took their foot off the pedal Offensively/Defensively when the game was won.

    they stopped giving an effort.

    the game was NOT ANYWHERE near as close as the score looked.

    Slater was one of the better players on defense today. I agree that he's not as talented as Edelman, but he's better than Sergio Brown.

    That being said, I didn't understand the Pats going with him at safety over Sterling Moore, who'd been back there the past few games and looked solid. Heck, a combo of Nate Jones and Ihedigbo would have looked better back there than having Slater there.

    The defensive game plan was a head-scratcher to say the least since it seemed they got away from what had worked the past 3 games..

    Yeah I didn't see a lot of prevent. I thought both the defense and the offense were still trying to dominate. They just couldn't execute.
