Julian Edelman doesn't tend to get the credit and respect he deserves around the league, but one former player took notice in a recent ESPN segment, putting him ahead of some notable names which created some controversy.

    So many emotions went through me tonight.
    Disgust with McDaniels on some of his play-calling, particularly short-yardage.
    Disappointment in Brady on the Interception in the Red Zone.
    Elation with the Michel TDs.
    Loving seeing Gronk as part of the game plan.
    Loving the Defense shutting down the Chiefs for the 1st half when the Refs were letting most things go on both sides.

    Loving the Defense putting 4 sacks on Mahomes.

    Disgust with the Refs in the 2nd half when they called every DPI/Holding against the Pats CBs and nothing against the Chiefs. The ridiculous non-call on the Chiefs player who tried to take Edelman's head off with a cheap shot. The BS calls on JC Jackson.

    The amazement when the Ref got the 1st two Replay Reviews correct. Disgust when there was no clear evidence on the 2nd Hogan catch that the ball hit the ground.

    The Rollercoaster of the last 5 minutes of the game where it went back and forth, though the Refs helped out KC ridiculously.

    I was honestly HAPPY when the Defense gave up the last TD to the Chiefs so quickly because it left so much time on the clock for Brady..

    I was shaking my head when they came out playing prevent on the 1st down of the final Chiefs drive. Knew that Mahomes was gonna get a big chunk because they were giving it to him.

    I honestly hate how McDaniels does the rotation with the RBs. He never seems to let Michel get any sort of rhythm going and I feel it hurt them tonight.

    That explosive offense (legit) got shutout in the first half of this game. The D stepped up big. If they can replicate that in the SB I like our chances.

    Their server load can't handle it. This has happened after everyone of their losses this season. They'll make the board viewable once everything cools down.

    I don't really get your point. He rode Michel in the first half until the Chiefs started to use stouter fronts and made the run game less effective. Again, as long as Michel is (for whatever reason) not trusted in pass pro means he is mostly in on run downs. Sometimes Brady checks to a throw based on the favorable look they get because the other teams also know the Pats tendencies.

    Once the Chiefs switched their defense up front we attacked them differently with more passes and some hurry up and that means less Michel.

    Add in that people saw him leaving with a limp on his final snap and there you go.

    Finally got to check in on them this morning. Sitting down to drink my coffee and read their game day thread, just amazing. A good read if you’re looking for some entertainment this morning.
    I do have to laugh at the Pats fan in there “cheefyweefy” letting them have it, pretty funny.

    I'll have to make it a point at sometime today to check the gameday thread, I'm sure the usual suspects were in playoff form.

    It still feels surreal to wake up this morning and realize the Pats are going back to the Super Bowl.

    It really sucks that the thread about heading to KC was locked, people talked some serious sh.t in it.

    Luuked - Go back and look at the play-by-play. I don't mean them taking Michel out on 3rd down for White. I mean them giving Michel 2-3 plays and then subbing in Burkhead despite there having been 7 plays in total. Then they went to Burkhead to start the 2nd series. Yes, they went back to Michel after several plays, but it still felt like they don't let Michel really built up a rhythm.

    I didn't notice a huge change in the KC defensive front, other than bringing a LB down next to the DE, but I was at the bar and not able to pay a lot of attention to substitutions by KC.

    I thought I heard Romo mention around the start of the second half that they were playing bigger dudes now. Since it coincided with the run game losing a bit of efficiency I assumed that what happened.

    I personally don't have an issue with that. Because one of the things that McDaniels when he has it going really is masterful at is never letting the opponents get comfortable so he likes to change the pace or type of calls often.

    Michel still ended up with almost 20 carries in the first half. Which for a rookie is a ****ton. I trust that they know what they are doing and as Sony goes through a proper NFL offseason he will be able to handle more next year by becoming stronger and bigger.

    You know it is like the 4th & 1 with Burkhead. I didn't like that he got the ball but I understand why he was on the field. He is a better runner than White but also trusted in pass-pro / out in patterns. So this way Brady had the option to check to a pass.

    Do the coaches nail the right mix of personnel and scheme all the time ? No of course not. But at this point I have grown to trust them a lot. But, hey, I get what you are saying it is just that I think Michel is physically not there yet AND also not trusted enough to be more than the one dimensional back that he is and sometimes you need more.
