    In Response to Re: I Hate To Be Here : Not that it had anything to do with why they lost, but I agree that wasn't a Safety. He was stepping into a throw deep, released it, and then was hit.  There is no way you can call that since it's never called and you can't prove it wasn't a broken route or a miscommunication. How awkward is it seeing some dorky ref come over after the play is dead and then call that? Really? I get why the call is made, but they seriously never, ever call that. I said that aftr happenedd and then even Collinsneck said it. Also, the clock control on thre last drive was incorrrect 3 times: 1. Bradshaw scores, clock shows 1:00 even when he falls in the end zone, then it shows 57. Odd. I am pretty sure I wasn't that drunk. 2. 19 second on an incompletion, it ends up being 17 seconds.  3. I may be wrong here, but when a play runs and a team has too many men on D don't you add seconds back on in that case?   I thought you did, because in those situations, teams can just continue to use that to their advantage on D, sabotaging the yards for clock. That's like 10 more second of clock. Not a huge deal, but I wonder why we see such basic management of a game just not done correctly in a game like this. Is it that difficult? Even the announcers were commenting on it.

    Rusty, I missed all those clock blunders but the 12-men penalty.  That had to be 10 seconds lost on that play alone, right?  I think that was very fishy in what was generally a fairly called game.

    As for the safety, Brady was under pressure just before he threw it.  I am positive.  He should have rolled out, tried to run, then tossed it away if he was not clear.  Or he could have thrown it away a tick or two earlier and they would not have called it.  But he was definitely under threat of being sacked.  It was regrettably the correct call. Just like the one in the Falcons game vs. the Giants.  Brady blew it big time on that whole play.

    In Response to Re: I Hate To Be Here : Yuppp...God forbid you give any credit to the Giants "D".  After the two straight TD drives, I was sure Brady was on one of those streaks where they can put up 28 points in a row.  But the Giants "D" held tough.  The Tuck sack was the turning point.  I believe Brady was gun shy after that.

    The Giants D!?!?!?!? Really???? Really???

    Here is what happened in the Pats last two possessions (exlcuding the Hail Mary):

    1. Gronk (an injured TE) gets open deeeeeeep. Brady grossly underthrows him and the ball is picked off. Giants D blows the play altogether and gets lucky. Play was on Brady not Giants d
    2. Welker WIDE open on the Giants 20 yard line 4 minutes left Pats with the lead. Brady makes a poor throw - though still catchable. Welker gets both hands on it but cannot hold on to the tough catch. No Giants D on that play. No D. ZERO D. Wide open Welker (a guy who lead the league in catches so you would think they would not leave him open). Giants get lucky as both Brady and Welker choke on the play. ZERO D
    3. Very next play Branch drops a first down throw. You can give a little credit to a DB making a quick hit on Branch after the ball got there but it was a drop. No big D play.

    Giants D was just not very good. Pats O had two drives. But Brady and Co. choked down the stretch. There was no big time D form the Giants. No eye opening play by any player on their D. Just choke by Pats O.

    Yeah, Brady even refuses to look Ocho's way, even when's burning right by a guy (ocho still has some speed, which catches corners off-guard at times).  Then he throws a terrible pass to a hobbled Gronkowski.  That's definitely playing favorites, which is bound to happen I guess, but Brady has always been his own worst enemy.  He is remarkable at changing plays before the snap but he is only average at adjusting after the snap (especially if the d-lineman are not giving anything away).  He is too honed in on what he wants to do and doesn't take advantage enough.  But that's a lot of nitpicking - his 16 straight completion streak was a thing of beauty.

    Riiiiight.  Which is why you're on a Patriots board commenting when you're a fan of the Colts.  "No dog in the fight" means you could care less who won.  You obviously wanted the Pats to lose, or you wouldn't be in here poking and prodding and twisting the knife.  The Giants outplayed the Pats, but your presence here today serves nothing more than to troll and enjoy the unhappiness of others.  You're not offering any insights.  You're not a respectful fan.  You're a troll.  Enjoy the rebuilding process and go away!

    btw - UD - I find it beyond entertaining that a Colts fan is on here blathering about pass interference calls the Giants deserved.  Your pouty QB and GM had the rules of the game changed so they could win.  Love it.  Love it.  Go back to the cow pasture.

    Re: I Hate To Be Here

    Actually, I thought the defense played well enough to win the game.  Given their shortcomings, BB and his staff came up with a plan that allowed them to stay in the game, putting the team in position to win it.  Unlike most of the season, the offense was incapable of producing when it needed to.  That being said,  Brady - for the 2nd game in a row, throws an unbelievably stupid pass late down the middle of the field - same result, turnover.  Welker misses a completely catchable ball that was a near perfect throw.  The O-Line at times, struggled with protection.  And special teams gave up yardage on a kickoff.  BB blew a timeout on a stupid challenge with the play happening right in front of him, I saw it from the couch.  Overall, a tough game.

    But, here is really no other way to do it.  41 pass attempts by Brady, no BJGE as lead back, a moronic INT by Brady with control of the game, and then just missed opportunities on offense with the Welker drop on 3rd and 11 the ballgame. They literally giftwrapped the game.  I don't mind losing to a better team, but that's not what this was about. This about two teams ebvenly matched, with one literally refusing to do things to seal the deal on offense.  They were lucky to escape froom Brady's poor AFC Championship game and to see it basically manifest itself again? What do they do all week in practice and why do they continue to act like they're ready when they refuse to run the ball? Their only TD drive was in a hurry up in the first half.  You cannot have a base offense be a wrinkle like a hurry up.  It cannot happen.  I think we should know who had control of this gameplan and how much power O'Brien had to alter it during the game. Note how NE scored a nice TD out of halftime. Who was the lead back? Congrats to the D. Great job doing your job and really putting the team in position to win the game.  Holding down Cruz, Nicks and Manningham was really good, the Run D locked down in the second half, and if just one of those strips bounces the other way, we may be looking at a win.  Battling and allowing NE's offense to finally do something before half was big. Congrats to the Giants, even though I think you know you got away with one yet again.  I am just not that impressed with Eli Manning. He does a nice job not making major mistakes, but he really did nothing of note to win it.  Some are calling it luck, but the fact is, NE turned it over once, NY did not. Brady and Welker pretty much gave he and the Giants offense a sniff to take the lead and NY played like they had nothing to lose, which is what I would be doing at that point, too. The only blame is on the Pats.  Welker may need to be on suicide watch. I am not sure how he lives with that.  The guy catches 100 balls per year, most of them on the run, some tough ones, and he drops that? Tough.  I feel for the guy because he's right. He sort of did let the team down. Still love the guy, but call it like it is. Sucks, but without an ideological change, maybe hiring someone outside the organization to sit on on the Brady led gameplanning on offense for honest and objective opinons on the approach, may be of help. Someone has to be able to tell Brady, "no, we aren't passing 40+ times" anymore. It's his offense, his show, his approach. I would have been demanding we get BJGE 20 carries and use him as a lead back. No way on earth Woodhead is lead back material and with Gronk not 100%, it boggles the mind why BJGE gets carries 10 carries and Ridley wasn't even used once? I can't imagine how BB and Brady can continue to toss games away by simply believing you can win SBs without really ever committing to a run game. I would ask them point blank, how can you do this? How can you not see it? It's to the point now where I don't care anymore because without them acknolweding that in fact, yes you do need balance and running, you will in fact never win a SB ever again. Logan Mankins collects 9 million per year and we throw 40+ times.  You tell me.

    The answer is clear Rusty.  Bill Belichick and Tom Brady don't know half as much about football as you do.

    I agree Rusty, how bad is Matt Light?  Some plays he cant even get a hand on the player he should be blocking!!

    Don't blame me, blame #12 who is the lead gameplanner for this offense. Blame BB who didn't see that 40+ passes is a loss. . . .   Posted by RustyGriswold


    Don't worry Rusty.  No one is blaming you.  In fact, no one with any football knowledge at all would ever mistake you for a lead gameplanner.
