    Re: Patriot and Colts game thread

    I guess it is very easy to pile up on BB here..But dont forget he did the same thing against atlanta earlier in the season when the game was on the line..You can understand the rationale behind todays decision. the defense was completely gassed and we were anyways playing our second line with main players being injured...there was no possibility of a pass rush being generated even if we punted the ball...add to that the fact that the colts had easily moved the stretch of the field on the previous two drives..if the pats had converted, BB would have been hailed as the master tactician...this gives an opportunity for all the BB haters in the media to pile on him..But remember this is only a reg season game and you can rest assured this will only fuel the pats more.....IN BB I STILL TRUST

    the NFL should have to play out-doors.. after this game, with all the hype and who's better? Brady... he plays with natural conditions and wins. peyton stays at home in a dome to win. right there, it's simple. btw, bill... come on, what the heck was that, go back to your plays in 02-05 and relearn what made you great. in the end, its not how you do it, its the W, you used to understand that. greedy on 4th down, c'mon 28 yard line! you don't do that.. trust your defense, its what made you in the first place, get back to it cause you aint winning now

    Another stupid excuse.

    Brady's got nearly a perfect record indoors.

    "My question is if you go for and don't make, why not let them score. Then you get 1 minute plus to go down and kick a field goal. If you gamble, go all the way."

    Exactly. Argue the 4th and 2 call all you want, but the biggest mistake was not seeing the gambit all the way through. You have to accept the full implications of the gambit and let the Colts score. Then you take your chances with a minute or so of time left. 

    I really liked the call but you have to see it through to its miserable low or ecstatic high if you make it. 

    Posters in this forum seem to think this was a playoff game. It's a regular season game folks. The Jets lost today and the division is looking good if we can beat the teams we're supposed to beat from here on out.

    Congrats to the Colts for a heck of a game.

    In Response to Re: Patriot and Colts game thread : Came to check in, and how did I know that you guys would be carping about officiating calls?  I thought the game was called perfectly, except they missed a Mayo int. call.  What you guys are complaining about was a legit PI call.  If anything, the Pats got some breaks on the officiating.  Just admit it: the Colts legitimately won the game on this particular Sunday.  After all, the Pats can't get ALL the calls!
    Posted by JulesWinfield

    Sure, that call was legitimate. It just isn't a Colts win without one. Both players playing the ball and contact created by the offensive player is not DPI. But whatever. It wasn't the whole game though it was significant.

    Please explain, if you can, how you feel it was legit.

    The sad part is that you really know the Pats lost that game - the Colts didn't win it. There is a big difference.

    Maroney...The guy is a travesty.  Moss should have ran it in instead, for crying out loud.
    I trust many things that BB does, but offense is not one of them.

    I still cannot believe we went for it on 4th and 2.  At least punt it and make Manning EARN the TD.  Don't hand it to him on a silver platter.  And we had plenty of opportunities to win this game and just didn't put it away.  What a shame to lose like this. This is a hard one to swallow.  Good night fellow Pats fans!
    Posted by kelleym

    Sorry if I choke back an ironic laugh here. The refs gave them 33 on the previous drive. They didn't earn that TD. I am not so sure they wouldn't have "earned" another one the same way.

    Coming from a guy who's team didn't lose today only because they didn't play. 

    I remember a few years ago (2007) the Giant fans screaming for Goober's and the coaches head's at the midpoint of that season.

    In Response to Re: Patriot and Colts game thread : You know, I think many Patriots fans (myself included) did have the brief thought "F this BS, do a slant with Welker on 4th down and end this nonsense"...but then we dismissed it. 
    Posted by NoHoldingCalls


    That play call on 3rd and 4th down is also extremely iffy.  You need two yards on 3rd.  How can you not do one of those draws to Faulk that was picking the Colts D apart all game?  Slant to Welker or Moss works 95% of the time.  To throw to your shortest eligable receiver instead of your 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd option on a 4th and 2 is such a horrible idea. 

    On another tangent, am I the only one who thinks it's completely unacceptable to let a spot of the football ultimately decide the game?  Shouldn't there be a rule to review the spot of a football if it has such an instrumental impact late in a game of this magnitude?

    You are SOOO right. My husband and I said that after we turned the ball over after the 4th and 2 call that we should have let the Colts just score right away. Then we'd have about a minute to play to hopefully go down the field and at least get in field goal range.

    I'm so mad I'm shaking!  I waste my time and emotional energy for that BS!?  The fans deserve better than what BB has given us the last 4 years.  He has tried to win for the past 4 years with below average DBs and it hasn't worked.  We have trouble stopping average QBs with the DBs we've had.  Every week the QB we play looks like Joe Montana - how can you expect to beat the Colts - even when we have them beat we do whatever it takes to lose. 

    Still haven't beaten a good team this year - or last year for that matter ...

    yes, but he doesnt have an indoor homefield, thats more of what i meant. the stadium advantage shouldnt be that way, it should be all indoor or all outdoor personally. i understand both QB's are fantastic indoors, but peyton gets it more often, other QB's and players in general as well.

    Heh.  See, if they ran the ball on 3rd down, the 4th down play would have been within the final two minutes of the game, and thus would be subject to review.  Bad play calling and bad clock management led to our issue.
    And seriously, cut Maroney.

    There are rules to cover that - but if you stupidly waste your timeouts you don't get to take advantage of those rules.  It's almost like BB knew the future and purposely did EXACTKY what he needed to do to make sure the Pats lost.  The offensive play calling is terrible.  I won'r be able to sleep tonight.  I was so jazzed that we were going to beat fairy boy Manning and the pretty ponies and now I have to stew about the most ridiculous loss I've ever seen.

    Everyone is acting like it was 100% the Colts were going to score.  They almost blew the clock management and let too much time tick off.  Pats stone them on the goal-line = game over.  To just let them score would be even more questionable of a coaching decision and would have buried the defense's confidence even further than the 4th and 2 play ever could.  At least if they stone the Colts they can get back any shred of dignity they had left after the coaching fiasco.

    With whom?  The amount of line backers and defensive line people injured by the end of the game was too much to depend on who was left...we are really spread thin and hopefully we can recover some of the injuries today.

    Why does the NFL need yet another rule??  How about better time out management by Dr. Evil??  Then he has a challenge to use and you're not upset with hurt feelings.  Or if you need two yards, run a three yard route.  In the end it wouldn't matter anyway.  He didn't have forward progress because he was bobbling the catch.

    I thought the pats played a good game. Tough break at the end but i think they can hang with any team in the league. Vollmer looked amazing, the d played extremely well until the 4th. Im mad at the outcome but i cnat hate the effort, good job pats. Its just one game, i cant wait to see all the negative people eat their words when we beat the saints in a few weeks.

    They must have wanted the refs to be all comfy to see the PI and spot the ball the ball correctly.
