In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
So in points scored since Weis left, the Pats have ranked:
3rd in 2013
1st in 2012
3rd in 2011
1st in 2010
6th in 2009
8th in 2008 (without Brady)
1st in 2007
7th in 2006
10th in 2005
This compares with the following under Weis:
4th in 2004
12th in 2003
10th in 2002
6th in 2001
25th in 2000
And the conclusion is the entire offensive system needs to be blown up and the coaches replaced? Wow. Just wow.
Wow, just wow is right. Oh my. You clearly are new to football. You keep proving it. You try to come off knowledgeable but clearly show signs of being new to the game.
1. Rogie Goodell took over in early 2006 and has since altered rules all over the place to favor offenses. BB knew this was going to happen, so he started to the offense to be able to score points, mainly through the air. Makes sense. Play the style of the offense that the league is promoting.
Problem is, like the 1980s Chargers, Dolphins, or the 90s Bills or 2000s Colts and then our Pats recently, YEP, I just checked, all those teams finished high every year and then Fouts, Marino, Kelly, Gomie and Tommy all underachieved when it counted or went home earlier than they should have. Remember? Or, did you not watch the NFL pre 2007 season?
2. Amounts of points scored over a season doesn't mean anything. It's HOW you score them that matters.
7 points for a 6 minute drive is better than 7 points in a 3 minute drive?
You'd have to be a moron to say it doesn't matter or pick the latter.
God! You are pathetic and stupid and a pathological liar.
Drive times are more or less dictated by situation.
You ever hear of a 2 minute offense? How about a 4? Dumbazz!
There are times when you need to slow it down and speed it up.
Teams wanting to keep the offense on the bench are going to slow it up. The counter to that is to go into a 2 minute type offense that doesn't slow the game down further.
You want to slow it down, like in the 4th with a huge lead, ( or like Both Mannings did to BBs, pathetic D) then you waste all the time you want or can.
You freaken dope! How many times do people have to explain this to you.
When you have a pathetic defense like Bills defenseless, D, that is on the field WAYYYYY TOOOOOOO much, you have to go to a quick strike offense that can score in as little time as possible.. A seven minute drive is going to eliminate another possession. If you are needing to score, THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO DO IS REDUCE YOUR POSSESSIONS. DUH! . The game is timed. Both the D and O CAN'T waste it. Somethings got to give, and that something is usually the O, because the D is sooooo easily exploited.
The D has to be playing well to play a ball control offense. Allowing scores and minutes on 6 of 7 possessions is not going to cut it.
Are you really this stupid?
You play like time is running out because basically it is, because your dopey D, is limiting it for you.
More and more teams are doing this to the Pats and will continue to until SOMEONE fixes the D.
