In the Starting Line-Up
Season on the line next week
Well the OL did suck. Whether they are the normal starters or not doesnt change that.Your assessment of the O-line and Harry are laughable.
O-line - Wynn is playing hurt. They lost Ferentz and Mason less than 48 hours apart. So they had a makeshift line that had ZERO f'in practice together. Add to that Eluemenor going down early and you had 3/5 of an O-line that hadn't taken regular snaps to this point.
In terms of Harry, he's doing excellent in his run blocking and he's getting open. You clearly missed Cam missing him ridiculously in the final series and it had nothing to do with a CB bumping him off the route.
The Patriots didn't exactly call a lot of passing plays early on because of the makeshift O-line. They went to calling more because of the hole they were in.
Cam is accountable for 2 of the sacks he took because he should have thrown the ball away. Beyond that, it was clear that the team had only had 2 practices in 14 days.
YOU and every other person throwing out assessments who don't take that into consideration don't know jack about the game and are just spewing in a vain attempt to look smart.
It has been a long time since a Pats team was dominated like that. Denver even tried to give is the game at the end and we still messed it up. Horrible game from Cam. This offense will struggle anytime they face a good defense.
When was the last time we were 2-3?
Blame Cam all you want (and he does deserve some of the blame) but I put a lot more on McDaniels.
The play-calling was absolutely atrocious all game long. Save for the first 2 weeks of the season, McD's play-calling has been terrible for the better part of a year, going back to last season. You have a 6'3", 215lb WR and you can't throw one single, f*cking fade/back-shoulder throw? You know, the ones Cam is good at throwing?
McDaniels gets stuck in a certain type of play-calling and has no nuance/tact in adjusting. Take away what he does well and he has no alternatives. Today they tried to run the read option, once that got shut-down they had no alternative plan for running the ball. They tried quick hitters in the flat, but the DEN DEs were all over batting those down. And after that, he fell into a long-developing, downfield passing attack with an injured o-line.
Infuriating - absolutely should've won that game.
The offense is built around QB running plays. Pretending otherwise is a waste of your timeThe offense is largely built on precision and you can’t be precise if you don’t practice and the players can’t/don’t execute. We saw a ton of that today. There‘s a lot of blame to go around.
Similar to real life.There are a lot of annoying toolbags on this forum.
If they saw enough with Sanu to get rid, what are they seeing from Harry in practices? Dude is not an NFL WRs period. It is disgusting how defenders just crowd the LOS against us. WTF BB? Is this the plan? I understand they did not practice, but one on one is just mano a mano and these WRs could not do jack.
Did he say that today?

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.
I said "time, time, Time, TIME!" in my head on both sack plays.Cam needs to have better pocket awareness. Yes the line was terrible today but he held the ball way too long on multiple plays. That and the batted passes which are becoming a big problem killed us. They need him to stop side arm slinging some of these underneath routes and they need to bring in someone who can make a play in the passing game. Maybe the Eagles take what they can get for Ertz or maybe the Texans are willing to part with Fuller and we just hope he actually stays healthy. At this point I wouldn’t even mind getting Dede Westbrook or see if AJ Green has anything left (which I doubt but whatever take a shot).
