    The way I see it, The Pats dropped some passes, the Pats fumbled twice and Denver matched it.

    I'm just glad the media doesn't get to cream over Manning excuse my french.

    I dunno...a few of you have the right sentiment.  At some point, I'd like to see our guys just defend straight up, knock down passes, and get off the field.  I think there were only what...two passes defensed cleanly?  (both were Dennard I think).   We've invested in the front seven and they are masking a lot of defensive breakdowns in the secondary.  That's good - a good pass rush and solid LB play is key.  But at some point...I just want a 3rd and 15 not be as easily attainable as 3rd and 1.

     

    I'm really starting to think Josh Boyer's defensive backs coaching lessons need to be revised.  Most of our defensive backs are playing with really crappy technique...they don't jam at the line...even when defending the last two yards in the redzone...they continue to line up five to seven yards off the WR.  WHY?  The guys don't look for the ball...at any point.  WHY? 

     

    Maybe DMC played with more of his more collegiate technique his rookie year...and was better off for it.  They coached him to play the Patriots way...which has been terrible.  Do all players play without looking at the ball?  Do all players not have the ability to jam guys at the line?  That's coached.  Our safeties have looked just as lost over the years...whether its Chung, Gregory, Merriweather, Sanders, etc...

    thanks for asking.

    been saying the same myself for a long while.

    a top team in the league should have top coaches (beside h.c. bb). no reason not to.

    First of all the Broncos are a pretty good team. All their losses are to Super Bowl quality teams (they have probably played the toughest schedule in the NFL so far). They won a tough game against a quality opponent. Both teams made mistakes. Teams that make the fewest amount of mistakes usually wins. Broncos made a valient comeback but they still lost by 10. The Pats will most likely be better if they face each other again.

    i agree wiht everything you said, however becasue our offense is so talented they can overcome a -poor at times, spotty at times off. coord (and our def. good enough to 1/2 the time), does not mean this cannot be corrected (and our chances of winning a super bowl much greater).

    It's not fair to say "if only...." for one team without saying the same thing for the other team.  In most every game you have plays that "almost" made a difference.  I think it's why you always hear BB say "we made a few more plays than they did" or "they made a few more plays".

    [/QUOTE]

    why are some of you not understanding what i said.

    i am not sayng if only about ANY plays

    im saying "if only" about the job josh mcd is doing.

    The Patriots played very well and could well have won by even more. The first and goal inside the 5 should have produced a touchdown with this offense. Drops happen, it's part of the game. I think if anything the Patriots. Could have won by more.

    I agree that Dennard should play more and I think he will. I'm glad they didn't cut him and try to sneak him on the practice squad, we would have lost a good corner. Wonder if Dowling is going to see more playing time too.

    [/QUOTE]

    Was nice seeing dowling on the field and looking ok.

    agreed on dennard

    re your frst paragraph, that is my point, all of that happens, tho you cant count on it happening on  a given day for the opposition. so you dont need yoru team handicapped by an O. C. who is spotty or calls a bad game.

    please re-read the actual topic and my comments in the thread. this is about the fact that this was almost a giveaway (like arizona and baltimore) despite domniating 250 running yards, etc

    several here have missed the whole point of the thread

    tried to change game thread so that those not understanding the point would get it.

    bdc doesnt allow that

    so i changed the beginnig of the post below the thread topic.

    let me know if that clarifies it.

     

    ie:

    please read this before replying: 250+ yds running plus 2 turnovers, record number of first downs and josh's game calling almost made this a game to be decided in the last moments (and potentially lost). the game had no business being this close.

    I have read and reread all you have stated. However you put all the blame on play calling. Were they not playing another NFL team and a good one at that? You give no credit to the Bronco's defense. You blame it all on the offense and play calling and that is so dumb (sorry). It is a game of cat and mouse, ying and yang. Sometimes the D out plays the O and some times it goes the other way. Don't you see them looking at every play during the game. They are looking for tendencies on both sides and sometimes one guess right and the other wrong.

    Without Ridley's fumble the last Mcgahee fumble would not have happened. One was the result of the other. Was Ridley's fumble the result of bad play calling. Were the sacks the result of bad offensive play calling or good defensive play calling?

    It is not a one way game.

    As I stated to only look at half of the equation only gets you the wrong answer.

    WOW! You actually mentioned the 2 turnovers by the offense. Are you sure you and Babe want to admit to those? After all you'd have to admit that the defense bailed out the offense by forcing a fumble to get the ball back. Oh wait the Denver turnovers were 'lucky' weren't they? No one stripped the balls.

    Do you and Babe actually watch the games?

    Football is a "game" and 60 minutes in length.  So called "key" plays do not dictate the end result of the game!

    I actually think the key play of the game was the forced fumble by Moore on the pass  he gave up in the first 3 minutes. The fact that he did what he did change momentum very quickly and early. see sarcasm
