    Like I said , excuses are lame. Now, we are hearing that Talib getting hurt was the difference. What a joke. He was not even a part of the team all year. And , how did he get hurt ?  What happened ? What a joke.  The Pat's could not even convert numerous third and short opportunities. They were thoroughly whipped. The Ravens dominated the line of scrimmage. If you think this is going to get better next year, you are delusional.  Like I said , it was a great run. But it is over. Face the facts.




    3 points in 3 quarters.

    I'm tired of this!  Brady's best days are long gone.  I seriously think they should trade him - chokes way too much and can't seem to win the big games anymore.  Heads need to roll on coahing staff as well.  Really, really tired of this sh*t.

     Patriots need a couple of pass rushers. My guess they'll go out and get them.

     Defense wins Championships, and this was not a Super Bowl Defense. The offense is fine, although today they made too many mistakes.

     

     When the Pats won their Super Bowls they did it with great defense and with takeaways. We got none today. Ravens defense did today. And so thats that.

    Well, the Ravens are who they thought they were- a few thugs and "huck it up and hope for the best" QB. Pats moved it at will against this "vaunted" D and a few drops and injuries took what should have been a laugher for the Pats and made it possible for the Ravens to win. Nothing really to see here; we learned nothing and the NFL has been made less compelling by the fact that we're going to have to wait until next season before Brady gets his 4th ring.

    Agree with Sporter81 (9:53 PM).  Time for a new offense including the quarterback - Brady is becoming less and less relevant and that will continue to get worse.   Pat's Nation will be begging the media not to hype up acquisitions like Brandon Lloyd as the answer to the wide receiver deep threat - he's not the type to go up and get the ball away from a d-back - the best teams have 2 or 3 guys that can do that. Gronk is great but is injury prone.  Hernandez gets alligator arms after he takes a hit - notice Pitta for Baltimore takes the Mayo hit and scores on the next play - that's part of what the Pat's are missing. Is Bill shopping the wrong groceries?  

    By the way, Shalise, was the fumble tonight by Ridley "unavoidable" as well? Couldn't have been that he was out of control again tonight like he was against the 49er's........

    Plenty to look at on defense too - starting with the pass rush.

    In response to John W's comment:

    Ravens have a better quarterback, better receivers and a much better defense. 

    Brady's just a great regular season quarterback now



     Ya right don't delude yourself. Brady will be a Hall of Famer, Flacco won't be. You're nuts if you think othetwise.

    To help put things into perspective, after a big loss and far more tragic head and other injuries, here are words from the inimitable Noam Chomsky on sports:

    Well, in our society, we have things that you might use your intelligence on, like politics, but people really can't get involved in them in a very serious way -- so what they do is they put their minds into other things, such as sports. You're trained to be obedient; you don't have an interesting job; there's no work around for you that's creative; in the cultural environment you're a passive observer of usually pretty tawdry stuff; political and social life are out of your range, they're in the hands of the rich folks. So what's left? Well, one thing that's left is sports -- so you put a lot of the intelligence and the thought and the self-confidence into that. And I suppose that's also one of the basic functions it serves in the society in general: it occupies the population, and keeps them from trying to get involved with things that really matter.

    Folks bottomline here is Wes Welker killed us with that drop and it is two year in a row now.  Also, Talib injury hurt and seems he can not stay on the field.  In the end, the performance was dreadful and they should be ashamed of themselves.  Need to look at bring a DC in since the defense once again was a paper tiger.

    Complete devastation from that loss.  Very difficult to watch that team lose like that.

     

    There has to be a season of honest reflection at Patriot place.

    Bottom line is   No Pressure On Flaco..

    He was having fun  :(


     I do agree with this. The Pats need a pass rusher. ' Havn't really had one since Seymour left. Flacco's 2 second half TD drives were with no pressure in the pocket and with Talib out in the secondary, the Rasvens went right after the short Arrington back there and that was that.

    We lost and the Ravens won.  And I say that BCOSTIGAN is correct in stating that "Pollard is a PSYCHOPATH!".  He must be kicked out of the league and Super Bowl.  It is horrid that the NFL allows this psychpath to distroy the spirit of the game and the level of competition.

    Bradys passer rating was 63% so one single dropped pass by Welker doesn't make up for all the passes he threw in the grass.

    They stunk in the 2nd half. They were sucking wind.

    Pats offense sucked. Welker drop changed the game. Welker gone, played his last Pats game.  2 critical drops last 2 years. They will not sign him. Talib injury killed them also.

    Well, this sucks.

    Anyone have an explanation as to why Ridleys drop was a fumble when he was on his butt?

     



    watched in slow motion frame by frame and ball started to come out just before he was down - very close.
