In response to Schumpeters-Ghost's comment:
The last point is the Patriots need to "stay hungry" for a SB
How can they not be hungry? No one even remembers the last SB victory it was so long ago! There are hardly any players on this team that won a SB.
It's a joke that the media acts like every year the patriots have tons of people who have "been there before" - they don't
Last year - teh Patriost should have been desperate for a championship. But tehy have a lot of guys who aren;t desperate for a championship - and that is a problem that needs fixing.
This group of Patriots - over the last 5 - 6 seasons - are under-achievers; they are chokers. How else do you describe a team that always loses the big games?
Forget the ancient history - this team, the current players, haven't won squat. They have coughed up a lot of big games and been physically dominated.
Once the media starts playing that angle (and the fans demand more) - maybe the team will finally wake up and play hard again.
The free pass this team gets is amazing; they have choked repeatedly.
Hungry to me would be Brady running for the first down when Ngata was chasing him instead of taking the flop. Looked at that play..a straight arm would have done the trick.
Yep. That was very frustrating to watch. The nastiness and attitude also applies to the offense as well as the D.
When the Pats are on offense, I'd like to see them go out there with the mind set that they're gonna punch the defense right in the face.
Physically beat them up so when the fourth quarter rolls around the defense looks like it wants to be somewhere else. Anywhere but on the field at that time in the game.
To me, that would be a beautiful sight.
