[QUOTE]Wizardsjag, about the running game, it's what killed us in 07, and the blitz just came and came. I like Moss, I still feel he drops way too many passes and doesn't get himself in position on the long throws which allows these DBs to break up the play. His stats are good, but his strength is in opening up the field, and he isn't doing it.

The running game "killed us" in 2007??? Really? Please stop typing. Just read for second.
The Pats lost one game of 19 in 2007. One. Nothing "killed" them. If the running game killed them, they would not have made the play-offs., let alone came within one play of winning the SB. Clearly, you do not understand that BB reserved the runing backs, which had been hurt all season, for the latter part of the season and the play-offs. Once at that point, the running game was solid.
The reason they lost the SB is because the offensive game adjustments were not forthcoming. Cleary, Brady needed more dink-and-dunk passes, instead going for one bomb after another. This would have kept the Giants pass rush in check and kept them from pressuring Brady. In the one series in which they employed this method, they scored the go-ahead TD. Unfortunately, it was too little, too late. After the Giants socred nexty, the Pats didn't have enough time on the clock to dink-and-dunk, hence they went back to the failed long-ball strategy and lost.
You seem to be a pedestrian football fan, maybe fairweather, and have not picked up these subtleties. It's OK to voice your opinion, but please be a little more responsible. We don't need a curious Moss reading your ill-conceived posts and be put off of his game. But if I am right about you trolling, then I guss that is your objective afterall.
