    meriweather was in great position all nite but missed/blew by several what should have been routine tackles for him

    mankins, overrated like ive always said, struggled picking up his blocking assignments in run game..

    koppen couldnt stay on a block long enuf

    kaczur overall played quite well

    neal inconsisent

    vollmer nice job

    brady was f' n inconsistent again, missed huge throws in the most critical times



    men, we obviously know we should have won that game but didnt...although with brady playing down to his normal and missing two passes that would have been touchdowns and our pro bowl kicker missin that field goal and only losing by 3 in ot...not bad...we were def not outcoached..josh did a nice job obviously but defensively we missed alot of tackles that resulted in big plays for them...that rb slip screen kills us when we r n man coverage..bc our lineman usually blow by to get pressure and dont read it in time..big vince is quite good at reading the screen on occasion..orton played his best game of the season, made several huge accurate throws just in time unlike brady who played decent at times but not brady like overall

    mcgowan played terrific overall

    springs played well just unfortunate on the marshall touchdown, almost perfect position

    our rb's missed alot of creases on the shotgun draws plays

    mike wright struggles more than our other interior linemen n the run game but a good pass rusher

    adalius thomas played awful, especially setting the edge against the run..he could be outa here next year..i wasnt high on him last year

    mayo's weakness is obviously pass coverage, zone or man...guyton kills him in this department

    wilfork is beast

    randy moss is lazy sumtimes and could run block better and more consistently

    jonathon wilhite is one of our weakest corners and he's a pus# as well, but i will admit he has improved from last year and can be a pretty good backup

    patriots 12-4 superbowl champs if no major injuries in 2009

    Considering all the negatives that you found in the Pats team, why is your conclusion 12-4 and Superbowl champs? :confused: LOL. Just wondering.

    Didn't read the whole manifesto.. was Ghost in there some where?

    If he wants to be big time he has to make kicks that matter in close games not just 40-7 blow outs.

    Yep, that was almost as good as a game winner. I know he's a human, not a machine, but that kick has to be made.

    So Denver got very little pressure on Brady, and we ran fairly consistently, yet you conclude that 80% of the offensive line didn't do well? There are legitimate critiques of the team's performance yesterday... and then there's this.

    On a side note, I disagree with you on probably three quarters of what you said

    How can you say that? Kickers are allowed to miss once in awhile, it wasnt like it was a chip shot either. He made his career long 52 yarder earlier in the game and missed a 42? yarder. If he had missed the 52 yarder and made the 42 then we wouldnt have this debate, but please dont get on Gotz, the guy is a beast, all of his kickoffs are in or out of the endzone.

    I put my comments in bold. Let's hope we can make it all the way.

    Absolutely. I can remember Maroney completely missing on one attempt to block a blitzing LB

    I think the blame is that the offense is stagnant and very predictable. Yes, Brady is rusty. Every player who has ever missed a year has been "off" for the better part of a year after his return. My problem is that everyone seems to think that if we cross our fingers it will get better.

    Let me be clear. I think Brady is the best QB in the game today and should have his name mentioned in the top 5 best ever. But anyone who has watched this team regularly can tell what play is coming. There is ZERO CREATIVITY and I think the OC or lack of one is to blame. For all of Belichick's accolades, and there are many, I don't think offensive creativity is one. This team needs an offensive mind to help Brady out of his funk. And no, I don't wish Josh McDaniel was still here. He COST us a SB, don't forget.

    I bleeping hate those plays! Has anyone not named Kevin Faulk ever consistently done much on those? They look like a broken play. They don't fool anyone. I wish they were taken out of the playbook.

    If Brady is in the shotgun and they aren't lined up 5-wide it seems like it's almost always that play.

    Run draws with Brady starting under center, IMO. That way it's perfectly normal to have a RB in the backfield.

    Sorry, man, that was practically a game winner - a top, pro bowl kicker makes it.

    I give our offensive line an A grade---they were spectacular against Denver. Elvis Dumervill didn't do squat. Brady just missed his targets, plain and simple. Dean Pees probably coached the worst gm of his career

    Pro bowl players do miss FGs every once in awhile. Not many kickers can make 53 yarders. His kickoffs were as usual outstanding. Are you really blaming the loss on Gots?

    I couldnt agree with you more. Great post. First thing I thought about after the game was the lack of play calling and creativity from the OC.

    Randy Moss looks lazy with his pass blocking, Maybe it is because of his height/frame or he doesn't want to get hurt.

    No I'm not - he had a good game but you can't cost the team the game and not be included on the list of goats. It's the life of a kicker and I imagine Gotti agrees with me. He's a good kicker and had a great game until that kick.

    He definitely did not cost the team the game. You are being a little harsh. Did anyone else cost the team the game? or is this loss all on him?
