[QUOTE]It's funny I'm a huge Pats fan but too many people think we are just going to walk in and get W's. I was at the Monday night game. They played like garbage. Based on that and the fact that are O line looked like trash I would be inclined to bet against that Pats away at the Jets. We haven't won a SB in 5 years and we should have won 2 more and it freaking pisses me off. The Indy meltdown and obviously the Giants game. Our defense is average and that isn't enough to just walk all over teams especially when our O Line has gotten worse the last 2 years. I just find it amusing that fans think the Pats are so good when the D was dominate when we were winnig SB's. Apparently people think names on offense offset that and it's been proven that it doesn't. Take your blinders off. It's not easy to win in the NFL.

Guess you really DID miss a good game; spending most of your time at the beer garden. What did the stats show? By my count, the Pats shoved the Bills all over the field on offesnse, and did remarkedly well on D seeing how 4 starters are gone from the past 4 years. Possession ? 37 - 23, Pats favor. Yards? 414 - 276, Pats. Plays? 77 - 48, Pats. 1st downs? 28 - 17 (You guessed it). Passing yds? 368 - 186, Brady. Sacks: 4-1, the maligned Pats D. Score? Well, one point may look close, but there was actually a 10 ppoint difference there, the missed FG and the INT for a TD, that was obviously played out just like the BIlls brain trust drew it up in the dirt. Sure, Brady was somewhat tentative early on. Who can blame him? He OWNED the 4th qtr, when the game was on the line! What about scoring 2 TDs in the last 5 minutes, including forcing a TO on a kickoff, when all the "experts" were calling for an onside kick? Well, so much for that. Then, these same experts said the Pats caught a break. Looked to me like they MADE their "break" . All those dropped passes early in the game? Out of Sync? Or is that not allowable wither? Finally, how badly did Evens and TO light them up? How's 5 total catches for 71 total yards? So much for a horrible secondary.
May I suggest you enjoy your next visit to Foxborough from, let's say, your seat? AT least that way, if you actually pay attention, you'll be able to know just what you're talking about come the Day After.
(BTW, I watched the game at a sports bar in Kansas City. It was obvious that I was the only Pats fan in teh place. The best part was when the Chiefs fans kept asking me why the Pats were letting the Bills hang around. I told them to keep watching the game, and the 4th qtr. When all was over, they were amazed that Brady was able to do what he did when EVERYONE in teh bar, the stadium, and the world knew what he had to do. Unfortunately, the Bills D staff must have been watching your game too. )
