    How long can we keep it up?

    brady has yet to throw for 300 yards, just last week we had our first 100 yard rusher, and we have only had 2 players with 100 yard receiving in a game (hernadez and tate, 101 yards each)

    how long can we keep winning without putting up the numbers?  we are the opposite of the chargers this year, all wins, no stats.  sooner or later i see the chargers getting hot and winning some games.  sooner or later the pats will have to start putting up some numbers or i feel they cant keep winning

    Our Super Bowl teams put up similar box scores and the one trait we have in common with those teams up to now is: the win column.

    2007 was the only year where either side of the ball completely dominated the league.

    Maybe we should be worried ...

    But Laurence Maroney has run 36 times for 74 yards this season.  

    Hahahahaahahahaahaa

    You do realize that 300 yards passing is only important in Indianapolis and completely useless in the real world.

    Well, considering that in the past four weeks - all wins - the Pats played pretty legit defenses, I think they'll be okay going forward.

    when everyone is playing the way they are you dont need stats. defense is playing a lot better than i thought they would. witht he offense we are getting good play from every player on the feild for the most part. and we are getting good feild position most of the time. when we play with good feild position as often as we do then having big numbers as far as yardage just isnt gonna happen. as far ar receivers having games with 100 yards or more....im surprised we even ahve two. brady is getting the ball to everyone so no one person gets the chances to have the ball enough to get that much yards. so dont worry about stats with this team cause its not gonna matter at all.  the way they play is to win games not to makes people with patriot players in fantasy leagues happy.

    I think whats helping this team is that this year they seem like their having fun. Its always better doing something when its fun. As long as its like this I dont see it going away.

    Re: How long can we keep it up?

    The only numbers "put up" that really matter are in the "W" column. And so far they've put up more than any other team. They're also #1 in scoring. I could care less how many yards they get. The offense is efficient, and they're giving the defense time to rest. They also are sustaining drives in the second half, and especially late in the game. I'm not too concerned about the offense being able to do their share in winning games. I was a bit worried about the defense, but they're improving. The O reminds me of the 03 and 04 teams. If the D can come even close to the guys back then they have a great shot at getting to the show. The real tests have yet to come. How they do against the Steelers, Colts, and Packers will be telling. The team is full of young talented players. They want to learn how to be champions from Belichick and Brady. I think they can keep it up if they continue to play smart, and all three units contribute. The three games I mentioned will give us a better idea, though.

    There are concerns, but not the ones you mention. This team has many young and inexperienced players. I want to see them handle some adversity, like a losing streak. (No, I'm not hoping for a losing streak.) But I don't think 15-1 or 14-2 is realistic. There will be a letdown sometime this season. Then we will see what this team is made of.

    Re: How long can we keep it up?

    I think there is some concerns with the team despite their record. I'd say running game, but Law Firm looks more than adequate and the loss of Taylor hasn't hurt them yet. I'd say the receivers, because Branch is hurt, Edellman has done nothing but get hurt and besides a nice return and long catch Tate has been a little quiet...and yet they move the ball when they need to. The line looks a little thin, but they just got Mankins back. The D line I thought was going to be a joke and they have held up ok. The pass rush is not there and they still have gotten them off the field in crucial situations. The secondary is young and injured and yet they don't give up dumb big plays. We knew the tight ends would be good and they are. Welker is still going to catch 80 plus passes despite everything. And they have gotten all their wins against good teams with very good defenses. Who knows, maybe they actually get better (they are young) and avoid anymore injuries and take advantage of the fact that there is'nt many good teams out there.

    If Bill B doesn't play Taylor till Pitt or Indy they won't have much tape to go on. I wonder if holding him out is by design. Second half of the season Fred. He's the smash mouth answer we need. I want to feel for a change that on 4th and 1 or 3rd and 3 we can run the ball.

    NO YOURE STUPID HAHAHAHA

    see, doesnt really get you anywhere

    i agree with many of you, the only stat that matters is the W.  however, sooner or later i fear our lack of numbers will lead to lack of production (makes sense, no?)  im all for keeping it as it is now, just as long as we keep winning

    If the Pats keep playing they way they are now, we may just have to accept 15-1 and homefield throughout the playoffs.

    Re: How long can we keep it up?

    As long as we continue to play smart football, and minimize the mistakes, there's no reason this streak cannot continue.

    The keys to the PAT's league-leading record.

    1. Minimizing turn-overs (Especially since #81 hs left the building)
    2. Getting the points in the red zone (much better than 2009)
    3. Key Stops in the Red Zone (Holding opponents to 3 poiints instead of 7)
    4. Different Players making key plays every week. Especially on Defense.  Opponents cannot focus on one player.
    5. 2nd Half Adjustments much, much improved from 2008/2009.....

    Just look at the defenses we've gone through. This offense will continue to be the most underrated unit in the league...until the playoffs.

    When everybody else (I.E. Rivers and Manning) will be missing the powder puff defenses that padded their stats in the reg. season, the Pats will be ready to roll.

    Re: How long can we keep it up?

    flutie...  why so focused on numbers?   Seems a lot of games in which QBs are running up the gaudy passing numbers are in games in which their team was behind and it was garbage time.  You are not seeing these numbers when a team is controlling the game and winning.  If you are for style points, be a Colts fan...  they are into stats and gaudy personal numbers.  Not the Pats!

    Wow some of you guys need to relax.  Flutie isn't saying that numbers are important, he's just asking, if we get into a shootout, can the offense put up enough points?

    But the answer is yes.

    Or, lacking that, create an army of bits so you can talk to yourself, like Sybil does.

    Re: How long can we keep it up?

    Dear Flutie - 

    You want stats that will put it all in perspective? Here's one you overlooked: turnovers. 

    Pats: 6 turnovers in 7 games. 
    Chargers: 16 turnovers in 6 games (not sure about the 7th, you can look it up). 

    Those 16 included three turnovers in the other teams' red zone. 

    So I'll make it simple for you: if the Pats continue to hold onto the ball, they will keep winning. If the Chargers keep coughing it up, they will keep struggling. 

    i realize turnovers aren't as sexy for you to track as piling up 400 yard offensive days, but they are far more important to winning.
