    [QUOTE]Oh yeah, can we stop asking for Price now... He didnt look too impressive. He had a chance for a big play but Brady had to step aside after the play fake and threw a bad ball on the run that was behind him, but besides that, dude just didnt look ready for prime time and throwing him in against the Steelers while getting whooped isnt exactly ideal 1st real game action conditions.. Now his confidence is lower....Maybe now that Ocho is pretty much a no show...maybe he plays more....but its not gonna solve our problems. I would rather just keep Hernandez out there as the 3rd option.

    Price was only on for six plays, though. That play you mentioned should've gone for a touchdown, but Brady was under too much pressure.

    [QUOTE]Very frustrating game to watch.  I kept waiting for some screen passes, maybe even some trickery, i.e. a reverse and even, God forbid, trying to run the ball.  Instead all I got was the same crap of trying to throw the ball each time, trying to gain 10-15 yards each time.  The Patriots used to be good at making adjustments, not trying and trying to keep doing something that clearly was not working AT ALL. This game made me ill.

         Yep...it was tough to watch. The Patriots' lack of a deep threat was telling yesterday...as the Steelers' secondary played close to the line of scrimmage, and beat on Wes Welker, Deion Branch, and Aaron Hernadez...taking away Brady's short, safety valve throws. Dallas did the same thing. You can bet the Pats will see more of this type of pass coverage in the coming weeks.

    Great Questions to Ponder as we search for answers as to how this occurred:

    Can BB and his staff be this bad?


    Is BB just trying to get into the playoffs, showing nothing, where he unleashes schemes no opponent has seen?

    Are the outcomes of some NFL games determined in advance, and this is one the home team was supposted to win.

    RESPONSE: There's nothing wrong with BB the coach. But, there's alot to be desired with BB the GM. His poor draft selections have come back to bite him. No matter how good a coach a guy may be, he still needs talent to be successful.

    Is BB just trying to get into the playoffs, showing nothing, where he unleashes schemes no opponent has seen?
     
    RESPONSE: No. You can't turn it on and off like a light switch.  

    Are the outcomes of some NFL games determined in advance, and this is one the home team was supposted to win.

    RESPONSE: No. Short of Green Bay, there's a lot of parity in the league. The old "on any given Sunday" addage holds true this year. This loss can't be blamed on the officials. The Pats were simply outplayed, and out-coached.
