    Again in my opinion that Edelman fumble is not where momentum was lost. Pats came back and scored a td to make it 24-20 ravens. It was lost in the ravens possession where this so called great defense allowed a long drive for a td. They couldn’t get the stop. A 4th and 4 and the ravens went for it. They had no respect for this defense. Frankly if the other team has 37 points you deserve to lose!

    Didn’t Brady throw for 285?

    Except the Patriots also have two weeks to prepare for the Eagles in this case... which should take away any Eagles advantage.

    It doesn't matter because Tom is only looking for Edelman, Sanu and White. Edelman was gassed, I have to believe that Sanu and Watson were gassed also. Yet, Myers and Izzo didn't get in the game (1 snap combined). Izzo could have dropped the seam pass. Meyers could have fumbled. Bill, Josh and Tommy are the best but every once in awhile they outfox themselves. If Myers and Izzo are so terrible they couldn't be trusted at all then they shouldn't be on the team.

    Wilson and Jackson seem more durable

    If the patriots ran a regular offense (with lots of substitution), the defense of the ravens would have been better. Sure, Edelman, Sanu and White were tired. However, the defense of the ravens was much more tired.

    Rotating our WR's and TE's, and rotating defensive players of the ravens would have benefitted the ravens.

    I thought the lack of rotation among the WR and TE was perplexing especially when they made an active effort to rotate the RBs..

    There is no reason the Pats couldn't have rotated in Izzo for Watson and Meyers for one of Dorsett/Edelman/Sanu to give them breathers and without interrupting the momentum. Especially since they rotated White/Burkhead.

    So, was keeping the same personnel in purposely gameplanned, or was it an attempt to stay vanilla for a potential rematch in January? I’m guessing a bit of both, although Brady just came out and stated that he had never experienced a game where they were forced to use the same personnel the whole time, a couple of weeks ago.

    I don't believe any of these theories about "saving something for January".

    The 4th and 4 play was a blatantly illegal pick. Like 5 yards from the line, pick. Even Volin called it out.

    Thought I'd put this here...I'm down at Disney, watched the game in the ESPN club.

    The next day, in my Pats' hat, several people gave me a bit of grief. Finally came up with an answer.

    A lady from Baltimore good-naturedly rubbed in in (while I was taking a picture of her group as a favor), so I said, "I envy you. I miss the days when I gave a crap about football games not played in February."

    The entire Baltimore contingent tipped their hats to that one. it's my new go-to.

    More likely....
    Same personnel so as to be ready and on the same page for the no huddle attack , a necessity to minimize Brady’s chances of getting pounded into middle earth

    I think there’s definitely some thought to facing the opponent in the postseason, although who knows if it had any bearing on this particular game.

    The 4th and 4 call wasn't about not respecting our defense, it was about Harbaugh and his love for analytics. They've been aggressively going for it on 4th down and going for 2-pt conversions all season. They look at those win probability stats and make a lot of calls just based on that. If the numbers told them that they'd have a higher % chance to win by punting, regardless of opponent, they would have punted.

    Same. There’s no guarantee we even see Baltimore again. If this was KC, maybe. Baltimore? Nope. Their defensive strategy just didn’t work. Next....

    I heard that BB held strategy back for a possible later date. That sounds logical.

    I can only imagine the pain it would have been had we not faced them in the season and rather faced them during the post season where. Now we know who they are and can be better prepared for them later, we may not win in the rematch but we will not be all over the place on defense. The plan will be well understood.
