    Déjà vu all over again

    Lasts year's Super Bowl vs the Giants. Patriots have the lead and are driving. Another score will make it a two possession lead and virtually lock the game up. Third down, Welker open, doesn't make the catch. From that point on it was downhill and we all know the outcome. Last night, third quarter, Pats up by 6 and driving to make it a two possesion lead. Third down, Welker wide open, drops the ball. After that plan it's as if all the wind was taken from the sails. All the air came out of the balloon. Again, it was downhill for the rest of the game. It's not always the errors that you make as much as when you make them. Welker's a damn good receiver and his contributions are so valuable, but you just can't count on him to make the big game-winning/game-changing play. So, when you have a roster that makes you have to rely on him to make that big type of play, basically you're screwed. Last year it was like ARRRGGGGG!!!!!, but last night it was so predictable that it wasn't even disappointing.

    The dropped passes were not of the "big play" variety.  They were routine plays that the receivers failed to execute and catch the ball.  True, when they happened made you cringe and they all added up to a poorly played game by the Pats offense.

    Well, in fairness to Welker, the team way over uses him, and he gets punished a lot, and Hern often has drop issues also, but the timing of those drops is brutal.



    The timing IS brutal. Back when Patrick Roy was goaling for the Habs, he used to have the habit of letting in a soft goal almost every game. But it always seemed to be early in the game or when it had lesser significance. When the games would get tight, he'd bear down and late in the game or in overtime he was almost unbeatable. That's what you call a winner. Completely different sport, but winners have the same qualities.

    What's a "DéjÃ"?  Cave writing? Hieroglyphics? Russian?

    I spelled it the way it's actually spelled in French, with accents on the e and a. It works on my keyboard, but this site can't decipher it, so it came out kind of weird.
