    Malcolm won't admit to wrongdoing because hes a FA an BB would never throw him under the bus publicly.

    Do you think accusing BB of football malpractice without knowing why Malcolm was benched is unfair? That's despicable

    With all due respect... I think he is referring to what happened in the game immediately after the fact, not as a whole season. Unfortunately, there is a not an entire season of games ahead of you to work things out when it's the Superbowl.

    I don't believe Milloy was THE reason they lost 31-0. They lost b/c they started the year with new players and played like inconsistently the first 4 games

    The secondary play wasn’t nearly as bad as the front 7
    The run gane put the secondary at risk in down and distance issues and the lack of pass rush allowed philly to call any route combination in the book and let plays take forever to develop yet the secondary was close enough to contest the majority of the throws.

    Right, but that game was lost because of it. This time it was a one game season.

    They made adjustments they just didn’t help. It’s hard to cover up a front 7 getting demolished with scheme.

    For whatever reason belichick felt butker wasn’t an option so that change just wasn’t going to happen. It’s too bad because if butler hadn’t made himself persona non grata Or actually took preparation seriously maybe he cuukd have contributed.

    They made adjustments. They only have the players they have.

    And beat the Bills in the last regular season game by.... the exact 31-0 score from the opener. Poetic Justice.
    I got chills watching that game because I wanted that shutout really bad- and you could see that the Patriots players wanted it just as bad.
    And the Bills were desperately trying to avoid being shutout, even when down 31 points with a minute to play.
    And we freakin stopped those bastards. One of my all time favorite regular season games.

    I feel bad that you blew your money for this garbage when they sunk their teams chances to win on ****ing purpose. Also the refs giving them 3 touchdowns which gave them 20 points instead of the 9 they would have had from them. A new picture came out of the first TD against Rowe and the guy didnt even have control when he hit the ground. Ball is touching the ground. I was going crazy live saying it wasn't a touchdown and what do they do? Call it a TD within 10 seconds. No way they were letting us win this game

    Actually, I was listening to some more of Didinger and crew. They again said the Eagles game plan was to stay away from Gilmore and Butler. If the matchup was wrong, they were going to run. They also talked about the Pats O basically doing what it wanted against the Eagles D, which they were not shocked by as Brady is the GOAT. The coaches kept telling their guys they need to hit Brady, hit Brady. That was the mantra on the last drive. I think in the end of the day, we are going to learn that BB just out thought himself.

    No. He's credited with the 50+ yd run and others.

    If BB deserves blame it's playing that chump. He's terrible

    I don't feel like I blew my money. I enjoyed the city, the stadium and the game itself, when the offense was on the field. It was just unfathomable how bad the defense was, and that they couldn't do anything to fix it. Then to come out of the stadium and learn that BB was the one who blew it. Wow.

    Not buying Milloy was the sole reason.

    I'll grant that it didn't help

    Not only BB blowing it, but the refs literally giving them 3 touchdowns. 2 that were on 3rd/4th which would have caused them to kick a field goal, and the 3rd happened on either 2nd or 3rd and long I think

    BB trying something unorthodox on D in a key game can almost be expected.

    Remember putting Rodney Harrison at cornerback (covering Marvin Harrison), not safety, and playing Ty Law at safety, not corner, vs. the Colts?

    The Colts were dumbfounded. Marvin Harrison was blasted over and over and made one catch for 6 yards in the first half and finished with only 3 catches for 19 yards. Law had three interceptions. Rodney Harrison had a game-high 10 tackles, an interception and forced a fumble on Marvin Harrison.

    The mystifying thing, of course, is that when your unorthodox strategy in not working, why won't you change it?

    I'd guess that we won't know that, ever.

    Good god man you've gone off the rails with this. With some of you guys I swear it's like a freaking cult. A couple of these other guys it's more or less what I expect. But you're usually at a higher caliber to be honest.

    probably. and then a bunch of insecure board bullies, whose lives revolve around this very board, will swoop in and tell everyone what to think since they have “been here longer”.
