Honestly, they should have won yesterday. Shot themselves in the foot too many times, and Miami fumbled three times and recovered them all.Brady was robbed of showing what he could do this season. When Peyton flamed out in his final year in denver we were sure he was done because he had weapons at every level of the offense and still looked like a JAG. Somewhere in a parallel reality Brady leads this years pats to a 14-2 record throwing to AB, gordon, demariyus thomas,and edelman.
And they should have beaten KC if not for the worst refereed game I've ever seen.
They should be 14-2 and the #2 seed.
But they're not.
As to anyone complaining that the Pats did not address offensive needs.... They DID. They signed Thomas, kept/added Gordon again, used a first-round pick on Harry, and even added Brown. And then they got Sanu who has been a solid WR for his whole career. For various reasons (injuries, relapses, utter idiocy), these moves didn't work out. I'd love to go into the playoffs with a healthy WR corps of Edelman, Harry, Gordon, Thomas, Sanu, and Brown.
And on the OL, they drafted several guys, and got Wynn back from IR. Turns out that their key OLineman (Andrews) went out for the year, and their best blocking back (Develin) got hurt and is out for the year as well.
It happens. They're still 12-4 which is pretty remarkable, all things considered.
