In Response to Re: Can we be Honest and Say who the Lost Ultimately Falls on : But one of the reasons the Giants can throw successfully from run formations is they have receivers who can stretch the field vertically. We need to do a horizontal stretch because we don't have any deep threats. That requires more spread offenses. The problem with the Pats as I have been saying all season is they don't have the talent to do what you are recommending. It's not that running and running formations are bad things--it's just that the Pats' players aren't made for that kind of game. If you and Rusty are right, then BB either is an idiot when it comes to offense or (as Rusty seems to think) lacks control of his offensive coordinator and quarterback. Neither of those possibilities seems credible to me. There is another explanation for why we don't run much or used run formations that much: that explanation is that we don't have the right talent. Why people can't see that and insist instead that Belichick has had a five-year brain f@rt is beyond me.

Prolate no offense but you are constantly making excuses as to why we are a one dimensional offense. Sure we can use a guy to run deep routes but imo Brady no longer has the accuracy needed to throw the ball deep.
Plenty of QB's have been successful without the ability to throw deep. We did it for years before Moss, only occasionally going deep to Patten or Brown. Trick plays or gadget plays like the Dieon Branch td against Pitt in the playoffs years back.
For you to suggest that this team does not have enough/the right talent is crazy imo. We just broke Marino's record for passing yards. I don't think its crazy for BB to be enamored with Brady's ability to throw the ball. I am not trying to insinuate I know more then BB.
With all opinions aside, our offense has scored:
SB 07- 14 points against the giants.
November - 20 points but 3 in the 1st 3 qtr's against the giants.
SB 2012 - 17 points against the Giants.
The last 2 games we had a RB who ran 22 carries for 100 yards yet threw the ball too much causing 3 interceptions and a sack fumble.
Our offense has averaged 17 ppg in the loss. Down from 34 ppg
Our defense has averaged 19.6 ppg in there losses, less then what they give up on average.
138 pass atts to 55 rushes and only 17 ppg to show for it.
Proof is in the pudding broski.
