    WTF could he be thinking out there? What could possibly be the explanation for this:

    I don't think I've ever been so disgusted by a play since Tyree's catch.

    Huh? He was going for the INT. They went over this during the game on replay.

    Either that, or he can go for the hit and we can tack of 15 yards for hitting a defenseless receiver......

    Hey, how about this for most disgusting play?

    He didn't just make contact, but went and tackled him while the ball was still in the air.

    He had help. So he didn't have to worry about getting burned. So he went for the int. I don't have a problem with it.

    With all honesty, when I first saw the replay of this during the game, I was disappointed that he didn't attack the football.

    Never a fan of seeing a player waiting for an overthrow.

    If he goes after the ball its an INT or an incomplete pass.

    I'm generally a pretty positive fan, but I'd like to see more out of Patrick Chung. I think our biggest problem on defense is a serious lack of play makers on all levels of the defense. They need to be more aggresive going after the football.

    i know people wanted to criticize Tracy White for his play, but he was right on the tight end there and forced Eli to make a perfect throw. That seems to be solely on the Chung.

    He was playing pass defense the same way he always does; unfortunately he doesn't seem to be very good at it.

    I don't get 1/2 of the Patrick Chung hype, besides being a hard hitter.

    Imagine the state of the board if that had been Meriweather instead of Chung. ;)

    Our Safeties are terrible in coverage. It's not like these plays were unexpected.

    For the record he hurt his foot on the play that directly proceeded this.

    i was surprised there was actually a patriots safety even remotely close enough to feign make a play on the ball during that ballard catch.

    I think this is one of the most important rule changes in the NFL in a long time. It used to be if a receiver went into the air to catch a pass, a DB could absolutely drill him to jar the ball loose. No more. It impacts how a DB can play nowadays. I figure they'll eventually adjust, but it definitely changes the game.

    I agree 100%. If he attacked the football it may have decreased his chances of an interception, but it greatly increases the chance of a positive defensive outcome.

    So, the Pats-Giants was the first game you watched since SB42 then?

    To be fair, he bit on the play action which created more separation between him and the TE. Should have expected pass in that situation. No timeouts left for the Giants. It'd be risky to run the ball and try to get the field goal unit out there in less than 20 seconds.

    WTF people? If you don't expect your safety to break up that play, then don't ever expect to see a stout defense in New England again. 15 yards tacked on? Huh? How about a jolting, dislodging, clean hit instead? And, if the refs want to call a 15 yarder then fine - its 15 yards instead of 30.

    Had nothing to do with his lack of instict to dislodge the ball instead of going for phantom breadbasket interception. I don't even know how it's possible for a supposed hard hitting safety to react as Chung did in that situation.

    Chung is far from an elite Safety and is really not all that great,but on this defense there is not much else talent in the secondary that Chung can be worse at his position.

    On a good defense no one would practically even think about Chung being a good player

    He is an adequate player on a pathetic defense...nothing more

    One other thing...let's refuse to play the Giants if a player is wearing #85 out there

    First Tyree...now Ballard

    really, what about when they shut down the TE's in the first few games of the season were they terrible then.....Gates, etc?

    they aren't great in coverage but they certainly aren't horrible either. Was he too passive on that play absolutely, but heck everyone has an off play/games even Ed "all world" Reed.

    good throw better catch IMO it would take a ed reed type player to make a play on that ball, im not saying Chung is any better then a average safety who is better off playing neer the line stoping the run but that was a good pass and catch
