    As bad as the defense has been its the O that has let us down.

    Zero points against the Rats and Denver. 7 against the Fish and NO. and 10 against the Colts.

    We could have won all except the Saints if the Offense put up some points.

    This offense scored 7 total points after the 1st quarter. zero points in the last 25 minutes.

    In all 5 losses the offense has been non-existent in the 2nd half.

    This team was #2 in scoring after week 10, but it still has zero road wins, zero wins against teams with a record above 0.500.

    The offense is soft n has no fight. Miami wanted the game more then the pats did. They deserved to win today n deserve to be afc east champs. They don't have the talent we do but they got more heart n fight then the pats do. I'll take that over all the talent in the world. Like big mouth porter said after the game, times are changing.

    I agree with you here. The offense is to blame for the Denver loss, Jets loss, Dolphins loss. The Colts and Saints losses were due to the lack of defensive execution in the 2nd half. However, all of these losses had something to due with the offense. We have gotten away from the running game when we shouldn't have and ineffectiveness in the 2nd half. That's why we are in the situation that we are in right now.

    This offense can definitely pile up yards. It did so again today.
    Someone who didn't watch the game would be fooled just looking at the box score and how many yards we generated.

    They wouldn't see that this offense did nothing in the last 25 minutes, and also through 12 games now all season is in the bottom of the league in red zone scoring.

    The opposition knows once the Pats get behind all they do is pass out of the shotgun and they can put pressure on Brady with a 3 man rush. All you have to do is double cover Welker in the second half, Moss won't even try for a ball unless it is perfectly thrown to him, and we have no real 3rd WR.

    That statistic means as much as time of posession, just look at the Pats record.

    Here's an interesting stat for this 7-5 team.

    Brady 13/14 in the 1st half.
    Brady 6/15 in the second half.


    That pretty much explains not just this game, but is a microcosm of our 5 losses this year.

    I was thinking this as well but didn't want to say it. Brady has his rings now and maybe a little of the FIRE is gone. This is not a good thing if true.

    Look at the ridiculous 1st half stats of this offense, even in this game. This offense piles up tons of yards and points, especially in the 1st half.

    The 2nd half struggles are about coaching, scheme, and play calling, not talent.

    Brady is more concerned with the birth of his child in a few weeks than he is football.

    Nothing to do with FIRE, whatever in hell that is. He didn't play for a year. He is not confortable in the pocket since the injury. His comfort level and movement in the pocket was his greatest asset and skill. He's not seeing the field well because he's not comfortable. He may get that back or he may not. That's the issue. It has nothing to do with "Fire".

    I mentioned this a few weeks back and was laughed at.
    Married does change some people. I am not saying its the reason but it does make you wonder.

    If you are going to state facts, they should at least be correct. The Ravens are 6-5.
