    Everyone was saying the same thing about us last year, too old, no receivers, no speed etc...don't give up on this team.

    Whats the difference between calling TO immediately or waiting if you get a positive first play and then use it ?

    Think about it.

    No, they got the bye at 11-5, they did make the SB in the 80’s and 90’s without the bye.

    As bad as that was, once again the offense gave up more points than the defense.

    It's been a while since we've created a turnover. Were due.

    Just don't turn the ball over on offense and I will not complain.

    Saints up 35-0. Here's to New Orleans wining playoff games by 40-50 points and meeting the Pats in the Super Bowls, with the Pats limping in, look ripe for the taking..

    Thankfully they didn't waste a 2nd rounder for a scrub WR in what is described as deepest WR draft in a decade.

    The defense did their job - only gave up a field goal and held the Dolphins to 1/6 on 3rd down. Fitzpatrick was on the money all half.

    The Patriots should come out pissed and running off left tackle where they had success in the first half. I'm not sure what Brady needs to do to get on track. He threw a couple of great balls in the 1st half (back shoulder o Harry and the long ball to Dorsett) but threw a slew of floaters.

    It is discouraging to sit on the ball before the half. But this offense only chugs down the field when it has balance between run and pass. With a limited amount of time and Brady's elbow looking suspect, I guess Belichick worried that the odds were higher for his quarterback throwing another pick or getting demolished versus helping rally us to a field goal.

    In a pass happy league, when you don't have confidence throwing it is a sign it is time to overhaul the offense. I hope we evaluate that side of the ball this offseason with all positions up for grabs.

    BB is getting ready for the playoffs, by acting like Andy Reid with TOs to try to understand how his mind works.

    Its obvious man.

    Yes, I think saying the team is playing bad is fine because they are playing bad. Where people do get into the troll/whiner/loser lane is when they start saying the season is over and all this nonsense. That's not how men (or women) face life. You go into battle and fight to win regardless of the odds.

    I'll admit, after the monster punt I was glad we didn't call timeout. Starting out around our own 20 could have been dangerous whether we went 3 and out or turned the ball over, figured either of those on this day would be just as likely as us driving 50 yards to get into decent FG range.

    That second down run was too predictable
