In response to ghostofjri37's comment:
As a rule no one play can be soley attributed to a loss. That being said in most sporting events there are a handful of plays that contribute to a change of momentum or are significant to the outcome. SB 46 is a perfect example.
The Brady safety... leads to 2 points and continued field postion for the gints
the 12 men on the field ...negates a turnover and leads to a TD
Brady pick intended for Gronk... tremendous momentum killer
The welker drop... could have iced the game
The nink offsides on 3rd down... cost them field position and time.
Perhaps if one or a combination of any of those turned out different and we are having a different converstion.
and this is exactly what I was trying to address to people blaming Welker but much better said on your part. To label Welker a chocker and not other players who had similar moments or acknowledge it was a series of plays that lead to the lost is foolish. Yes Welkers drop was a critical moment but it wasn't the only one that could have lead to the lose so why place blame on that single moment? Because that player is no longer here?
