    Hmm, the pass was behind sudfeld yet he touched it with both hands, arms fully extended in front if him. Surely you know the difference between front and back.

    A win is a win.  They went into a hostile environment on OPENING DAY and came out with the win.  Was it pretty?  No.  They surely have a lot to work on.  But I will take a win against a division rival in the first game of the season every time.  Growing pains were evident for the young WRs but they will progress.

    In other news, Danny f*cking Amendola, Julian Edelman, and Shane Vereen look like they are primed to step up for the lost production from last year.  Excellent game from those three. 

     




     

    did anyone else make a play ?

     




    On offense? Nope.  KT has a long way to go still.  Dobson and Boyce should start getting more snaps.  Once we get Gronk back, this offense will look completely different.  I'm intrigued at the thought of Gronk, Amendola, Edelman, and Vereen on the field at the same time.  Any production added by KT, Dobson or Boyce will be the icing on the cake.  It's the first week.  They will be fine.

    Manuel didnt even throw for 150 yards, this was too close for a team that made no real plays on offense. Dobson and Gronk were missed.

    New England deserves a better class Slot Reciever, so I'm going to give it to them. I am the Patriots very own Amendment.

    Week one, Amendola > Welker

     



    Welker had 2tds in week 1.

    I really need someone to state some kind of case why Ridley should be the starting running back over Vereen. Right now... he does nearly nothing better than Vereen. 

     

     



    Exactly. Vereen is superior in every Way. My fear is Vereen can't take the pounding Ridley can. He might wear down fast if we over tax him.

     

     

     



    Well, he is slightly worse in heavy traffic. Ridley has ten to fifteen pounds on him. But any of Ridley, Bolden, or Blount can be a short yardage/kill the clock guy. 

     

    But he is faster. He is quicker. Better at chipping. He has better open field vision. Way better at recieving. And it seems he has gotten a hold of running between the tackles.

    Above all, he isn't a fumble waiting to happen. 

    Vereen's gotta get the lion's share of the touches. 



    Can't Tebow finish the game?

    Oh god yeah. It's not even worth responding too. Like every single person didn't see Sudfeld trip over himself, and ... AND, everyone didn't hear the announcer call it out when it happened. 

    There is a limit to the amount of fiction one person can spin up. That statement is a mile over that limit. 



    How can a person be so delusional? Is it a mental disease? It has to be. I just haven't nailed the diagnosis yet.

    What I saw was an O needing more reps to nail it, and some really nice play by the D.

    The D gave up one serious drive - the first of the 3rd quarter - but otherwise were solid. They didn't give up 21, they gave up 14, and 7 were from a short field.

    Arrington was great in the first half, DA throughout, Edelman is gonna have a great year. The rookies were shaky, but they are rookies and will settle down.

    The ball was still BEHIND his route, though. It wasn't a squat route, professor.

     

    He tripped because he was forced to adjust to a god awful throw.

    GEt it?



    Yah .... spin and Lie some more... we all seen the play... give it up... He sliped during the CUT, before he even looked for the ball!

    Jesus Christ.  Someone get to Brady.  I cannot take this stupidity anymore. He is costing us games or almost costing us games all the time.

    So tired of it.

     




    You know what?  You need to shut the F up rusty.

    You are one sick, dck.

    Brady is the LEAST of this teams problems.

    The problem you are seeing is 4 f'n  ROOKIES on offense, thanks to the crappiest GM in history.  Who the hell completely blows up a record setting, # 1 offense?

    Without Brady, BB is a LOSER.  Just like you.

    Back to the weeds again BB.  Rusty will be right there to join you.

    Re: Game Thread- Pats VS Bills- Here we GO!

    An ugly win, but Amendola played with heart. Edelman and Vereen put in great efforts as well. Let's hope the Pats will settle down and improve.

    I am not a coach, and certainly do not have the experience, knowledge or ability of BB.  But I am just thinking out loud: What is the best way to handle a player like Ridley, who supposedly is the feature back, but committed some costly mistakes early in the game? He fumbled one ball, which fortunately was recovered by Connelly, and then he lost that big one that resulted in a Buffalo TD.  Is it better to sit him a bit and let him settle down, and then let him play with a chip on his shoulder to try to redeem himself? A person with pride in himself and his work often will shine in those circumstances. If he blows in the next few series, today is not his day, and he should be benched for the rest of the game.  By benching him pretty much the whole game, you might be robbing yourself of the service of one of your top options.


    Living well is the best revenge.

    The only weak areas today was really tthe middle zone and coverage out of the back field.  BB will get it squared away.

    Quick turn around for Pats in getting ready for Jests Thursday night. BB and McD shouldn't get much sleep between now and Thurs. game.  Finns and Jets both win their openers too.  Buckle up, this season looks to be a wild ride.
