    the offense is an absolute machine when it is clicking, there is no doubt about that. but thats why its so frustrating when they always cant close the game out.....the numbers say the offense is spectacular and the defense is average. but this season in crunch time, its been the exact opposite.

    I blame Brady for this awesome Offense.  Just imagine what our record would be without the Defense constantly bailing his great azz out.

    I know right!

    The defense was so clutch when the Pats were ahead against Baltimore and Seattle late in the 4th quarter.  And the D was so clutch when the Pats came back to tie it against the 49ers in the 4th quarter.

    So the Defense isn't responsible for closing games out?  What exactly is a Defense suppose to do?

    you are right about the seattle game.....but the ravens game the guy missed the kick and they said he made it. and the 49ers game it was the special teams that really dug them in a hole at the end of the game. i see why you would support the offense over the defense, but its just frustrating watching the offense stall at the end of games.

    when a defense gives you the ball back with little time left against the 31st ranked defense....you would expect them to be able to close out the game. it has just happened too damn much and even brady was pointing to it in his interviews. the defense does need to play well, its a team game obviously, but the offense are supposed to be the world beaters. the offense is where a huge majority of the money is tied up in, so if they are depending on the defense to save their a.ss every game, then they just arent getting it done. i understand there is going to be close games....its the NFL, but they just have done it too many times where they havent made the clutch play at the right time to seal the game.

    Re: NFL Drive Stats

    I wish someone kept a stat for how often offenses run out the clock when ahead by a touchdown or less.  I haven't seen it happen very often, usually the other team always gets it back with 2:00 or so to go.  I know the Pats have historically not done it very often, going back to the 2001 playoff run.  The only playoff game they've ever really done it was the 2007 conference championship against San Diego (the year of the much maligned pass happy offense).

    the pats have done it once this year against the dolphins. that was beautiful. if they do what they did in that drive the rest of the way at the end of games, this team will be super bowl bound.

    Ever heard of the tale about the guy whose head is in the oven and his feet are in a bucket of ice and claims that the room temperature is just perfect? Therein lies the problem with averages. The averages kinda cloud the story that really matters.

    I'd love to see what those numbers are, split between opponents with >500 record versus those with <500 record. Their numbers against those with >500 record are probably a better indication of how they'd do in the playoffs.

    Well football outsiders do compile weighted stats that take the strength of the opponent and game situation into account.  Here's what they say:

    Offense overall:  2 (Seattle is #1 unbelievably)

    Pass offense:  1

    Rush Offense:  4

    Defense overall:  16

    Pass Defense:  24

    Rush Defense:  6

    Tom Brady:  1

    Re: NFL Drive Stats

    the rush defense at 6 is nice considering there are alot of good run stuffing teams in the league. obviously the pass defense at 24 is an issue, but they have improved alot since the addition of talib and the ability to put DMC at safety and put arrington in the slot.

    The O is what it is - beyond amazing.  Apart from occasions when they seem to inexplicably get out of sync, they are a joy to watch.  

    The Defense, on the other hand can be truly frustrating.  The D is clearly capable of making plays often at the times they need to be made.  Unfortunately, they have extended periods of time when they don't seem to be able to stop the Little Sisters of the Poor.

    With respect to the SF game, the O put the D in a number of pretty tough situations early in the game.  Then, in the 2nd half, seemed to flip a switch and went into overdrive only to have the game slip away as a consequence of special teams gaffs and defensive lapses.  I see the SF game as a total team loss.  

    The team has lost 4 games by an aggregate of 11 points.  On the glass is half-full side, they don't ever get blown out.  On the glass is half-empty side, they have a tough time in close games.

    Brady sucks because he doesn't score a TD every time he touches the ball like Fitzpatrick, Tannehille, Sanchez, McElroy, Flacco, Dalton, Weeden,  Roetlisberger, Schaub, Luck, Henne, Locker, Payton, Quinn, Palmer, Rivers, Romo, Eli, Foles, RG3, Cutler, Stafford, Rogers, Ponder, Ryan, Newton, Brees, Freeman, Lindley, Kaepernick, Wilson and Bradford.

    thanks, mighty.

    top 2 o and middle of the road d... that is more than good enough to win the sb.

    people need to take seattle more seriously. everyone thinks they are just a strong d. they found their o too. the stats you bring up are the first i have seen say that, but i believe it. i have seen enough of their games to be impressed - more so than denver and houston in the afc or atlanta, greenn bay or sff in the nfc.

    noone is saying brady isnt good. he is a great qb and will go down as one of the all-time greats. im just frustrated with how they seem to sputter when the game is on the line. the defense isnt perfect in those situations either, but the offense needs to step up.

    Maybe the opposing Defense is stepping it up in crunch time.  If scoring were easy every team would be in 1st place.

    Each of those games minus ATL, the Offense was ahead by 2 scores,  (twice in the Baltimore game) which the D wizzed away.  NO ONE scores in every quarter.   The Pats don't score in every quarter even when they score 50 points.  Their second quarter is actually their lowest quarter, not the 4th.  Teams score on average once in 3 possessions. ( and not TD's either)   Pats O is better than that but you shouldn't have to be ahead by 3 scores, or score in every quarter, or score 40 pts a game to win. 

    Being ahead late in the game says the O is doing their job.   They score much more points than anyone else.  Wizzing away leads late in the 4th is not.  Look at the stats......One is great, the other is not.  They're ranked that way for a reason and it isn't because of poor offensive play.  It's because the D can't close a game with the lead and constantly give up 43 yard, one throw TD's, to Joe Shmoe. 

    Losing games against some of the worst offenses in the NFL, while scoring 31 and 34 pts is a travesty.

    Making rookie and poor QB's look like Joe Montana is a sin, yet they do it ALWAYS! Always.

    You always fault the O for not closing out the game but I'll bet you anything that the D's stats in the 4th are Much worse.

    Just as an O scores on one of three possessions, It's the D's job to not let the other team score on 2 of three possessions.  How often do you see that happen?  Not with the Pats PFTTTT
