In response to garytx's comment:
Brady has always said it's hard playing in the NFL. I've heard him say that for years on WEEI. Maybe some haven't picked up on that.
This team is mediocre. Face it. Two starting OL retired. That hurts. Past drafts, especially the Pioli/Belichick era. Being at the end of every draft hasn't helped either. I don't know what kind of defense the Pats are running. I don't get it. Everything seems to be about containing instead of getting after it.
RESPONSE: Amen! QAnd that goes for the offense, too. This team is so worried about its "D" that they're trying to go with ball control. That's not the way this offense operates. Spread 'em out...and attack!
We may be at the end of what we all feared would come. This was one hell of a run. Nobody else in football can match it. Nobody. But I believe it may be coming to an end and we're just seeing the start of it. It happens.
RESPONSE: The talent still remains. But, the will appears to be lacking.
