    It made absolutely no sense whatsoever and became incredibly predictable.

    Did a chimp call the plays this week?

    Even the defensive calling appeared to be called by a lower level primate too.

    Did BB let his kids call the defensive plays?

    I thought come out throwing was fine because it has worked all year. But the Eagles defense stated to hit Brady a lot. When that happens, the Pats should run the ball to at least keep the defense honest. Running the ball once in the entire first half is a little odd.

    The Pats had three possessions in the first half. They scored two touchdowns and a field goal.

    Against the Skins last month, the Pats started out running Malroney, which ended up loosening up the Skins' front 7 pass rush.

    I kinda wished they would have done the same thing against the Eagles tonight.

    The offense was fine. The playcalling and personnel packages were fine. People here just don't seem to understand a simple concept:


    Brady (Best QB of all time) + Moss (One of the best WR's of all time) + Welker (tremendous slot receiver) + Faulk (Great receiving RB) + Stallworth (Good receiver with great YAC) > any running back in NFL history

    I think this was BB's way to get the team ready for the Blitz.Both
    the Ravens & Steelers are good at Blitzing,Pass Rush.

    Frankly I have more questions about the Defensive play calling than the Offensive

    I've been a big McDaniels critic but I've got to give it to the Eagles for running an agressive defense and executing well.

    There's a bunch of playcalling I question too - but in the end, the Eagles deserve credit more than McDaniels or anyone else deserves blame.

    I don't usually mind when the pass over and over, as I've always thought it tires out the pass rush. But to do it that much, and with no RB in the backfield I didn't think was good. Philly didn't have to consider the run at all. The O was passing into a talented defense that KNOWS they are going to pass.

    I dont understand the playcalling at all. Lets let them pin there ears back and blitz the crap out of our all world QB without even a threat of running or a draw to keep them honest. And Brady did take some big shots.

    Horrible IMO.

    I'm gonna wait for Reiss' breakdown, but the play calling seemed pretty typical of the formations they've used for the past few weeks. The problem was that the Eagles collapsed the pocket so Brady was throwing off his heels time and again. Also, the Eagles did a heck of a job of covering Moss. the offense did fine when it was on the field and i think things seemed worse because Brady wasn't on for much of the first quarter.

    In the end, the Pats possessed the ball for over 32 minutes and gained over 400 yards. it was an aerial attack, but not that different from other games. they also had a 63% third down success rate. the "interference" call on Moss, which I didn't see and which also wasn't seen by Madden and Michaels, didn't help. Gostkowski missed the ensuing 30 or so yard field goal.

    I think we have to accept that the Eagles played a heck of a game and would have won if not for Asante's picks. We couldn't get pressure on the QB and our coverage guys paid the price by having to stay on top of receivers longer than usual.

    Any Given Sunday, dude.

    The playcalling was fine; in fact the only problem I had with it was going away from it in the second half. We scored on every offensive posession in the first half. Brady runs the run and shoot great.

    exactly , inexplicably we opened the 2nd half with a faulk run up the middle and then maroney up the middle in the 2nd drive for 1 yard.
