In response to TripleOG's comment:
These post game breakdown this year have been great to use and go back and look at things not visible from the Tv game. He does a good job breaking these downs. He is mostly on page with what I saw except I didnt realize at the time how hard the catch was that Amendola made at the 1. He think the pass could have been much better. My bad. I had previously thought the pass was catchable.
Other than that, he points out which plays he thinks falls on who. He does howeve point out that the Pats offense requires WRs to read defenses and so its hard to really know who was supposed to be where and all that. Good Read and sheds some light on WHY we looked so bad and also gives positives going forward. He credits a lot of it to the Bengals have a very good defensive unit.
Good post, Shizzles. Thank you for being genuine and honest this time. Your meds must have kicked in.
I told everyone here, we aren't even having this discussion, because that's a TD with Amendola and we kick a FG art worst at the end to go to OT.
Or, we win the game on that last drive, outright, because we wasted about 30 seconds more on the goal line plays we didn't convert.
It's something as simple as a Brady throw or decision that has cost us close games. Playoff games, SBS and on Sunday.
It's not just to pick on him either. But, to ignore this factor is becoming ludicrous. I could see if he was rushed or hurried on that throw, but he was not. Same thing on the high and wide throw to Welkie in SB 46. If he had stepped into that throw instead of being lazy with it, we win the SB and Welker isn't forced to flip around and reach for the stars like he had to.
The othe bad throw to Amendola was the one about 15 yards downfield where Amendola jumped as high as he could, but wasn't tall enough. That's a 15+ yard catch there with Thompkins blocking for him down the sideline and a possible TD for Danny.
There was no CB or Safety outside of the one guarding Thompkins about 10 yards deeper.
If he hits him on the hip in stride, Amendola's stat line looks a lot better than the actual good return day he had for us.
I fully expect this to improve from Brady. Sounds like Brady texts and leaves VMs for Thompkins (and I am sure the others) with words of encouragement and constructive, supportive criticisms to articulate the WHY something was wrong on a route, or whatnot.
But, the bad throw thingy is not on the WRs.
Get help. You're a mental case.
The guy calls out 6 Brady negatives. One is a 4.28 second sack; hardly some crazy amount of time to hold the ball. Another he admits was likely due to a wet ball. Two were not seeing an open guy. So, he is calling out TWO bad passes on Brady out of 38 attempts for a rainy day on the road!
Meanwhile he calls out 6-8 drops.
Get a clue MEGATWIT!
