    No sh*t. Who cares about the scheme. It didn't work and it was awful! Richards on ertz on a critical 3rd down. Chung on agholor. It's ridiculous! Coaching staff blew it period!

    You need to realize even bill belichick can look dumb on a big night. He had a bad night. He's a great head coach

    i didn’t say he had a good night

    he had a great night in sb 46, though, and he gets roasted for it

    it can’t always be because bb is a big meanie when we lose. that is a felger/mazz childish agenda

    the players get paid to execute

    Off a bit? There’s another team lining up on defense. ATA a minimum they should have had 16 first half points (and in reality more if the play calling was better). That’s a pace for 32 by the end of the game against a good defense. Oh, and despite being off a bit at the beginn8ng they never, not once, had to punt.

    Then just stay out of threads that you didnt create and explicitly asked to stay on topic. There are enough other threads or you to post your grievances about the Butler bullshit.

    I disagree with you on the one hand saying players failed to execute consistently and on the other saying Butler would not have improved anything.

    But it does give me the impression that the coach thought the same way- that players as individuals don’t matter, they are just interchangeable cogs in the machine.

    How many times has Brady been benched for moping or throwing a hissy fit on the sideline?

    Agreed.
    33 points is the best we’ve ever had (20, 32, 24, 14, 17, 28, 34) in regulation in the TB12 era.
    It’s hard to expect more.

    Plus, as close as our margin of victories have been (3, 3, 3, 4, and 6); this 8 point loss was our largest margin of defeat.

    I agree. Any defense at all could win this with an offense scoring 33. Only needed one stop

    I don't think you understand what a scheme is.

    The
    I understand that the pats coaching staff laid an egg last sunday. The iggles got a late Christmas gift courtesy of belichick and his coaching staff. No adjustments. Nothing.

    I think the lack of logic dictates the issue goes far beyond butler

    I think it involves coach, owner, qb, qb...... I’m starting to think butler was just collateral damage
