    In Response to Re: Analyzing the interception. : Yea how dare they throw the ball to Gronk the beast who has like what 10 or 11 redzone TD's.  That' just crazy.

    Did this "Gronk" character or BJ G-E touch the ball on the 3rd and goal play?

    Hmmmmm...

    ...I believe the thought is, the Patriots have multiple methods they MIGHT count on to hit paydirt when they're in the redzone.

    Gronk would have been a better option as well but Washington appears to have shut that down, although Brady may have been able to squeeze it in there.

    An audible might be consider trickery by some but, as Tom Brady stared down "Gronk" and chose to not throw there he only had the one option in the back of the endzone because of the pressure from his left. Washington outplayed the Pats on that down.

    That's part of the point.  He ran a lazy route.  At the end of the day, the QB gets the blame. 

    The fact is Manning's throw was about the quickest timing route that can be thrown and given the great coverage, if everything wasn't perfect (and it wasn't) the pass was picked. 

    In Brady's case, he had all day to survey his receivers.  He chose his worst one who was just picked up and heavily covered.  Brady had options.  Manning didn't.  Brady still threw the ball and tried to pass off blame that the receiver should "go get the ball".

    In Response to Re: Analyzing the interception. : Western my response about Gronk was not tied to that play.  It was in response to Rusty saying how Green Ellis rushing TD's had gone down.   My point was of course they have because Gronk has become a beast in the red-zone.  I am not saying they need to throw to Gronk everytime but when you have something as successful as Gronk in the red zone, its just common sense that others will not be getting the ball as much in the red zone.

    I agree that the rushing TDs are down because "Gronk" has gone redzone crazy. The point you both bring IS that Gronk was OBVIOUSLY Brady's #1 "stare down" target on the play in question. Washington shut it down and forced Brady to go elsewhere with little time as he didn't roll or play-fake. He stood-in.

    Playing Baltimore or Pittsburg in January will likely result in the same.

    BJ G-E in a stacked back field FORCES the defense to manage more options.

    Sunday's play was stuffed...I wonder if Vrabel should have been eligible for the play...just sayin'...the Patriots are predictable.

    Re: Analyzing the interception.

    Watching the replay 100 times and looking at the stop action photos, if Brady had really throw the ball instead of trying to 'feather it in there', it would have either been a TD or an incompletion. If the ball had any zip on it, it would have been to Underwoods hands at second picture, when he is at the top of his leap, and the DB would not have had any chance at it. Either Underwood would have caught it or it would have been incomplete. The ball was floated which gave the DB a chance to make a play on it, and he did. Simple as that.
