    Message to Josh McDanials

    As documented by a previous post Tom Brady's 4th quarter qbr rating is rather pathetic when trying to protect a lead, well I believe it's attributed to a lack offensive tempo.

    When I watch the Patriot offense play up tempo they're very difficult to stop but when they are trying to protect the lead the offensive play calling and predictability becomes exactly that....predictable with zero pace or tempo.

    While everyone is pointing a finger at the defense I believe much of the blame falls right at the feet of the offensive execution and play calling during the 4th quarter.

    So Josh.....keep the temo UP when executing the offense in the 4th quarter regardless of the score.

    totally agree. Take a page out of the 2007 season and run up the score.

    Josh McDaniels playcalling didn't cost the Pats the game.  This was a total team defeat.  Offense, defense, special teams all contributed to the loss.  All in all, I thought McDaniels didn't do a horrible job of playcalling.  As fans, we all reserve the right to second guess coaching but let's get a grip on this.  Brady committed 4 serious mistakes that hurt the team.  Solder, who had otherwise played well against a very tough opponent let Brady get badly hurried contributing to (not causing) one of the two intentional grounding calls.  The defensive secondary, particularly the safeties were inconsistent; yes inconsistent.  They were not horrible throughout the game but they did have bad lapses at precisely the wrong times.  Mesko didn't boom that final punt and the punt coverage was just plain horrid allowing Seattle to begin the winning drive near midfield.  The allegation that McDaniels 'cost the Pats the game' is entirely too simplistic in my view.

    His red zone play calling was horrendous. Out of 6 trips the only one we scored on was run, run, pass ( unexpected on the 1 ). Out of the other 5 trips he called two running plays which gained 3 and 5 yards. The rest were all passing plays. They resulted in 1 9 yard gain (which was 1 short after two incompletions) 2 for losses, one INT and one intentional grounding. The rest were incompletions.

    Don't disagree with your assessment on the red zone playcalling in any way, shape or form.  My assessment was (and remains) that all in all he was not horrible.  And I also have to attribute some of the red zone failure to a combination of inexact play execution and just plain good Seattle D.

    I thought McD's play calling should have resulted in a 40-17 score. The players did not properly execute the play calling. The o-line is tired and beaten up, limping to the bye week. TB made some bad decisions and bad throws.

    I like the Pats chances with McD calling plays and TB executing them....I think this team continues to lead the league in scoring.

    I have a problem when the offense is injured or having a bad day, the defense is not making the stops needed to win. Granted, the defense was beaten up, but the Seahawks took 56 snaps. WHere was Vince with the pressure? Wasnt this Cunningham's time to shine?

    When a play works it's a good call. When it doesn't work it's a bad call. Is it poor coaching or poor execution?

    I won't disagree with you but I'll never understand why the run/pass mix was all but abandoned in the red zone especially when it worked so well the first trip. It's not like nobody knows that passing inside the 15 is harder since everything is compressed and Seattle has big corners to cover our small receivers.

    Can't be a combination of both derpending on the play?

    Getting back to the topic.

    The Opnion

    "So Josh.....keep the temo UP when executing the offense in the 4th quarter regardless of the score."

    is spot on...

    Not the only reason for the loss...but playing with a lead the offense becomes predictable, alot of things have to go wrong to leave 21 point on the field on O and allow 14 on defense...but we know they will work on execution. Will they change their philosophy on playcalling when ahead in in the red zone and late game play calling??

     They did not show the replay untill after a commercial break but if i remember the pass was a little high. Brady sometimes throws it way too hard on these short routes. Welker has good hands so he might have been screened by someone. He did have his hands up but the pass looked a little high (I never saw a slow mo replay of it and I wasn't in the mood to watch ESPN highlights later).
