Don’t see the humor. The afc is wide open this year.
Yeah, that's probably true. Brady is still good and still outperforming his cap number, but it's pretty clear he's no longer in his prime. He's a top 5-7 QB instead of the best QB in the league, and that makes a big difference when you're asking your QB to carry a team that, apart from him, just isn't very good. He probably can't singlehandedly pull 3-4 wins off anymore.
In past years, my response to the question about Brady's window was "let's see some actual slippage in his play before we start talking about replacing him". Well, 2018 = slippage in his play. Still a damn good QB, can still win a Super Bowl with him, but he no longer relieves the FO of the responsibility to put a capable team around him. At this rate, the Pats really should be intent on drafting his successor this offseason, or next at the absolute latest.
Josh likes his passing game.
But you are aware that Gronk has been doubled for 7+ years by now. This was happening long before Cooks even played a single snap of football in a college. Trying to blame this on Cooks being let go is a pretty transparent stretch to blame teambuilding instead of maybe acknowledging that so far Gronk simply not been the player he was in previous years.
The real question instead of pining for Cooks who never quite fit into this offense is wondering why Gordon is not used a lot more.
Cant run the ball consistently if you regularly get a presnap penalty and start out behind on first down. So lets not pretend that we went pass happy or something just for the kicks of it. When we finally were able to put together a drive it was on the back of a well working running game.
This is the NFL... You could put the worst team in the league in the playoffs and they could conceivably win the whole thing.
I think James white makes the offense much better and they barely used him until the last drive.
If they want to split carries with Michel and burk fine but white and Gordon need to be getting more touches.
You must have missed the Pittsburg game last week. But yes, this is the worst officiated Pat's game I can remember, worse than buffalo last year when gronk snapped.
6 points in an entire half but keep trying. Followed by 10 points in an entire game today. Also that brainfart at the end of the second half last week was pretty much a turnover but stay misleading by mentioning 0 INTs. Oh, and if you bring up Ghost lets not forget how he overshot a wide open Hogan for an easy TD just a play before ****ting himself on the play that made the time expire.
You sound so much like Colts fans who were defending Manning back in the day it is pretty funny.
The issue with White is you can basically just put your dime defense on the field anytime he subs in. He's not a credible threat to run the ball. That's fine when the passing game is working so well that you can show pass and beat them anyway, but when you're trying to use the run to set up the pass it's not going to get it done.
Jackson...and instead of Ray rice going for an 80 yard td on first play it'll be Lamar Jackson
Get rid of Brady? LOL.
I know we are disappointed, but...
The team as a whole, is just not up to the task this season. It will be a tough road ahead.
TB is working with what he has. Nobody is exempt from blame.
Oh c'mon! I saw this coming a mile away. NFL was going to pull the Steelers' chestnuts out of the fire with ticky tack calls. I gave us 0.0 chance of winning today and bet accordingly.
We have as good a chance as anyone in the AFC of making the SB.
I very rarely come on here during the season but blimey were the stripes intent on making sure we never won, never seen so many yellow flags.
I miss big ole Alan Branch.
He wasn’t great, but I see how important having competence at that position is now.
Lose out, have MIA win out (that will give MIA the division), and have any one of the whatever-and-6 teams make it to 10 wins.
this (the play above) is the new variation of the good ole 3rd and 10+ shotgun draw play up the middle.
Maybe I do. Lets leave it at that please.
Our run defense began to fall when he declined. Still haven’t recovered. I honestly think we need 2 DTs next offseason.
