Time to start trading pieces for picks to speed up the rebuild, this team isn't good enough to win a championship so no way do i trade for Ertz or someone like that.

I would rather be trading Gilmore, Thuney, see if you can get anything for Edelman ect.

Bingo. Atlanta won so they are 1 win less than this team. Jets only need to win 2 and man, let that be against you. There is still time for Lawrence. If there was a time for Kraft to intercede, that time is now. Period. You don't f around when you have that player at the top of the draft.

It’s hard to talk about heart on offense when the only thing you did right was trick plays. Kind of like what we saw last year in games when Brady was stinking it up.

This is exactly what I saw too. The offense today looked like a spitting image of the late 2019 Patriots offense, which is why I don't agree with the common Patsfans opinion that Brady would have won this.

Every bloody team in the league can look back and say “if we did this or didn’t do that our record could be...”. That’s all BS. Belichick is certainly not sitting there saying “Gosh guys, we’ve played well enough to be 5-0, keep it up”

If you don't think Belichick is keenly aware of the circumstances and context that led up to today, then you don't really know what you're talking about.

Belichick isn't a myopic, short-sighted idiot. He understands the big picture and understands this is a 17+ week season.

If this team ultimately goes on to have postseason success, you can bet your ass Belichick (when discussing the season in hindsight) would note the circumstances around the early season losses, injuries, COVID, lack of practice/prep time, etc.

LOL. Belichick is the one that has consistently said that excuses are for losers and that his program is not built on excuses but competition.

The team is built this year on running the ball, and when you have a MASH unit on the offensive line the offense is going to struggle. What SUCKED was that we just burned our BYE week, which in the past we would use to fix things. Now we have to face Jimmy G and a pretty good SF team next week and hope to get key players back.

Brady “stinking it up” last year led us to a 12-4 record and had a much better TD-int ratio then Cam has this year.

Right, because Brady is the only player on a 45 person team and is responsible for all of their success ... oh wait.

And the Titans played with a totally shuffled OL and without their two key interior linemen as well ?

What the Titans did is absolutely meaningless unless you just want to troll around. Different situation, different team, different opponent and game that went in their favor with every bounce. **** happens.
Of course. When a counter point that completely blew up your argument happens, dismiss and accuse the other poster of trolling. The point stands, they didn’t practice either and were dealing with their own issues. They BLEW OUT a better team in Buffalo than the one we lost to today. Must just be easier to scream “tRoLLiNg LoL” than to admit that this team has personnel problems out the wazoo. Cam was holding the ball for 5 seconds at times today because nobody... NOBODY was able to shake loose downfield. This is the worst group of TEs in the league through five games and I’m hard pressed to think of a worse group of WRs in the entire league. They’re that bad. Practice or no practice - they’re still holding an L. Possibly a blowout if the Donks receivers didn’t drop 4 TDs in the first three quarters.

Harry is a Dobson clone. People didn't accept Dobson was a bust until he was out of the NFL. Have to accept the same thing about Harry

it's not Harry's fault he was picked in the first round.
...nor was it Dobson's he was picked as high as he was.
We need to accept we cannot draft receivers well (at all). It is what it is.

Obviously we are dealing with issues, but Belichick will never make excuses for the teams play. We’re 2-3. That’s a fact.

I like cam but not enough to get locked into big qb money for multiple years. It should’ve already started but next offseason we need to do what it takes to get our next qb and rebuild our wr core. Play on that rookie qb contract the next 4-5 years with a strong defense.

Simply put, we are not a great team. We are a grinding offense that can't afford creating turnovers. We are not build to chase leads. We are not a pass first team.

Defense is ok, but lives of creating turnovers. It can be expoited and teams can extend drives on that unit.

Also, there has to be some blame on the coaching staff.

The schedule isn't going to get any easier.

This I agree with. The last coach that will make excuses. I expect the team will be ready to go next week.

Does that mean the circumstances around today's game don't exist, because Belichick doesn't like to make public excuses for poor performances?

Seriously. I hope you realize how monumentally silly your argument is right now. Because the coach doesn't like to give public excuses for poor play, therefore all of the very real and legitimate circumstances that exist right now ... don't exist?
