    Reading a few articles and listening to Brady, there doesn't appear to be any easy fixes to the offensive lack of production. Brady has been not so subtly complaining about this for months, but no one has been listening. He is tempering everyones expectations.

    I have to believe they must get the running game going on Sunday if they have any chance of winning. Sony needs to rush for 100+ yards to help Brady out with the PA.

    Don't see defense holding KC under 24 pts.

    Guess we now know the center situation until/if Karras is back from his knee injury.

    If our offense cannot put up more than 25 points vs. this Chiefs D.....we are DOOMED.

    I still have faith and confidence in our defense even if I think we got exposed by some deep passes on SNF...still think they will make a game out of it, but the offense needs to get its collective head outta their arses!!!

    Expect the chiefs to load the box to stop the run and as it their achilles heel as well.

    So, our weakness (passing game) will be matched against their pass defense. Brady and Josh will have lots of opportunities.

    Harry and Meyers can't be made into vets overnight. Their routes are limited. That can be OK; they just need produce within their current limits.

    Sanu and Dorsett need to step up. I believe Sanu already has had a 10 reception game. He need more and more work with Brady. IMO, he is the key in the playoffs. Dorsett needs to recover from injuries. He is very fast and on the same page as Brady.

    I asked this about a month back, didn't get an answer so asking again.

    Scar has always fielded a line that's great at pass protection, and by God with Wynn in, it's evident. What years has he fielded a line that has amazing run blocking?

    Like I said last time, I'm not suggesting any blame on Scar. Last year we had great running in the playoffs, but we also had two phenomenal blocking TE's. This might sound like a stupid question, but does scar coach TE's on blocking schemes, too?

    Just a few Q's going into a game where we want to see running get better!

    Meyers actually looked pretty decent in hindsight. I suggest you check out @patsinthesnow's post in the rewatch thread. Got his fair share of rookie stuff to clean up but promising.

    The NFL is such a "what have you done lately" business. More so than any other sport IMO. If the Pats O is decent and they win we will all feel so relieved. If it's not and they don't, we won't.

    This is the kind of game they usually win, but occasionally they lose it... and that is a VERY bad sign.

    The offense has been on life support for a month with multiple system failures, and the defense has been unable to sustain their record setting pace. They have no credible PR, KR, or K. There are no reinforcements on the way. So there is little reason to be optimistic. But if I have learned anything over the years, it is that nobody can accurately predict what will happen Sunday. They have not yet played their best, and Bill is pretty good at getting the team to play their best. I will not be surprised if the light goes on.

    Very well said.

    There’s no reason to believe and I do somehow.

    He should just stop talking. No one believes him or in him.
