The critics have blasted them all season, but Sunday night the Patriots defense proved that they really are better than people think.

@ryjacques U watch stupid. they pay nfl because you watch. so stop watching. do us both a favor.

@rtmcnamara @ryjacques Then why you writing to me? I didn't write u.

@ricked82 Not that I've heard of. I doubt it.

👀👀👀👀 this was my show back in the day lol https://t.co/PRT0rWrFqm

@PeterIBreen it's weird because he knows football. Just a strange blind spot

@ricked82 By every statistical measure, any analytic, Ryan and Brady were 1-2 this season.

@MarcusPapas he whiffed on at least back-to-back plays, but I haven't gotten there yet

Did you know that Mike was asked to coach? 92. ... 93. ... https://t.co/F4wsYrzaS0

Patriots knew exactly how Steelers would react, to the point that Edelman never stopped moving, started walking to new spot.

RT @SportsCenter: Tom Brady is on the cover for ESPN The Magazine's Super Bowl Preview Issue. https://t.co/u5NKMkgtbw

That was the Patriots toying with, out-coaching the Steelers. One team was playing chess, other checkers.

PIT had something cooking when out of I form, 11 went in motion (staple play). Then Brady audibled Jordan & NE went spread, 26y pass to 15

Hey, awesome. Time for another 'point of emphasis' on illegal contact.

    etc. etc.

    I dunno what to really say about this. If it ends up affecting the league to even close to the degree that the 2004 point of emphasis did, this will be an outright joke. I can't even count the number of conversations that I had last year with fans that took on some element of "wow, isn't it great to see defenses being allowed to play some defense again?". Also kinda sucks that this is coming right as the Patriots have finally assembled a secondary that is capable of playing dominant, physical coverage.

    On the bright side, if they keep this up it's only a matter of time before Matt Stafford throws for 6,000 yards (and probably still finishes .500 and misses the playoffs). Can't wait for that.

    Fantasy football is ruining the game. The whole sporting world is turning into a corporate-driven Bud Light commercial.

    What really irks me is that they enforce this ludicrous point of emphasis" during the season and then in the playoffs it's suddenly ignored. What does that say about the game? Will they ignore it completely or will there be some "situations" where the emphasis magically re-appears?

    Fortunately Revis is immune to DPI calls. ;)

    I was listening to talk radio the other day, and they were spouting incessant verbage about how much this will hurt the Patriots... but they never said why, I changed the station. If anything the Pats have as much experience in the D backfield than I can remember and know what you can and cannot do.

    Browner is a mauler, and both Dennard and Revis are clutch-and-grabbers.

    Accurate.

    Not too worried about Dennard unless the WRs have cops in the family

    i've already seen fans of other teams calling it "the Peyton Manning rule." That is bit misleading, as it really is the "fantasy football" rule, but I keep quiet. :)

    You're going to see every WR in the league flailing for a flag when a catch isn't made just like they do know, except 2-3 times as many will be given out. It's the "we hate defense rule".

    Where was the emphasis when Gronk got bear-hugged in the end zone in the Carolina game? The league puts out decrees all the time in the middle of the season. Looked like a violation of no contact after 5 yards from what I saw. To hell with the "he probably wouldn't have caught it anyway" theory (and I think he would have).

    what a home run...especially the Gronk bit...that is why I say, if I SEE this turd in public, grinning that jackass smile of his, I'm screaming about THAT hypocrisy as well as the "gate" BS HE let get totally out of hand.

    Even in the 1970s, that was a penalty. At least most people had the good sense not to deny it: it was clearly a case of the refs not wanting to end a MNF game with a game-losing penalty on the home team.
