In response to jimmytantric's comment:
I know the pats are going to win it all this year---and they just may do this simply because they have Brady. I think I may have mistakenly joined the wrong forum. Is the the Pats forum for the blind? Because the Passing Defense that I've been watching over the past 2+ years is very OFFENSIVE. Can anyone on this forum say honestly that they think this Pass D is not Horrid?--Heck- Chad Henne and the powerful Jaguars Offense just threw for like 360 yards or something. When the playoffs arrive and Brady can't put up 30-40 points is there a fan out there that really believes this D will stop a Manning or Rodgers or Henne. The passing D for the Pats has made many an average QB over the years look Hall bound! They say the first sign of recovery is to see things as they are--are we as fans seeing what is real or pretending it doesn't exist. And I'm not talking about rooting for your team and wishing them wins--we all do that - but at some point we have to admit the Pats DBacks SUK!!!!!!!
Man, you are one heck of a downer. There are so-called Homers which at times I qualify and then there are downers, gloomers and doomers for which you quailfy. There might be positive posts written by you but I haven't seen any of late. I don't want to use the "T" word but there could be a case made for that too.
OTOH, I was really P. O ed at the Defense playing loose zone again. It looked like they were in "Prevent" most of the game. Perhaps someone with more knowledge than me could explain why if they are using that defense to avoid giving up the big play only to give up the big play makes any sense.
OTOH, the bottom line is that the Pats won. Also, I guess the 49rs defense and special teams su---ck too because they played Seattle a lot worse than the Pats did. And Houston Su--cked for only scoring 3 Points against the Vikings at home. The Giants won the SB last year and most likely wont make the playoffs this year. Oh, and it is still possible although improbable that the Pats could get the number one seed even with a defensive secondary that through sceme and execution is not good. "It is what it is" and "your record says who you are".
Do the Pats have a chance to advance to the SB? Yes. I think that's about the best any fan could wish for at this point. But that's just my opinion as a Pats fan who would rather look at the glass as 1/2 Full instead of half empty.
