What's the deal with the Patriots' playoff offense

  1. There is nothing wrong. It's just a small sample of bad luck.

    Can't use Gronk's injury as an excuse for a few reasons.

    A. We were dominating all season without him on Offense and just destroyed the Texans with him playing like one drive

    B. We all knew he wouldn't be playing against the Ravens and everyone and their mother still picked us to win that game(and many said big).


    That offensive performance was flat out pathetic

    We were able to beat everyone except the two SB teams with a TE injured. Not a coincidence.

    Obviously Gronk and AH together round out the offense and give it balance.

    Personally I thought that it has been a personality driven issue. I feel like the team and the offense in particular lacks an emotional spark plug and the other half of the equation is that Josh McDaniels isn't as flexible with his gameplan during the game as Charlie Weis was. Weis seemed to have an intuition about when and how to change the tempo, scheme, etc. during the game to maintain or regain momentum. If you look at the stats posted in the original post, the Weis years show a + in the playoffs and the McDaniels years a -.

    They did. But the Super Bowl was a different game. Do you really think that the Pats only score 20 points with a healthy Gronk in the game?
