    Over rated and Pathetic in the playoffs? WHAT?

    Didn't they win a playoff game last weekend and looked good doing so?

    Didn't they win in the playoffs last season and take the AFC title?

    Bad game today, it happens.

    +1.

     



    My issue with this attitude is that people want to argue that Brady and BB are the "greatest of all-time" at their jobs. If that were the case they would stop having "bad games" with the season on the line. The last five post-seasons (Giants SB 42, Ravens in 2009, Jets in 2010, Giants SB 46, today) they were supposed to be the better team (by 9+ points in three of those games).

    The pats now need to tweak the offense a bit...welker should not be signed. His money should be spent on a vertical threat who is big and can out muscle when needed. Ballard and Gronk starting te's, Hern and edelman play the slot, keep our current rb's. to me that is a more complete offense and opens the field up a bit. Keep Lloyd as a 3rd WR, let branch walk. 

    The defense is a diff story...

    Have to be realistic about Brady's  desire...had an open field  for 4 yards for 1st down and he took turf rather than risk contact. Also Had choice to run from the 10 and did not seem to have the 'dammit I'm getting in the end zone' will to score with his feet. credit ravens...they drove and took this one all around.

    You just don't get it. Welker opens up all the deep stuff.  You can dink and dunk to TE's to help out but you need that Welker type player and a deep threat, not one or the other.  Man, haven't you people learned that yet?

    When was the last time the offense played well past the divisional round? 

     



    I thought they played well in the 2011 AFC championship game. They won 23-20, isn't that what counts.

     



    umm no, being honest with yourself as a fan and realise that the Pats backing into the superbowl doesn't count for them playing well.

    It counts for us as fans being happy they got to the superbowl with a chance to win another one.

    Those are not the same things.

    The patriots have tried teh exact same thing SIX straight seasons and lost. 

    I'm betting that Robert Kraft tees up the same plan AND BELLICHECK DOES THE EXACT SAME THING AGAIN NEXT YEAR - and they fail again.

     

    They desperately need a new Coach.

    It's really obvious - but no one at Patriot Place wants to do it because BB is a Hall of Fame coach with a tremendous record.  (So was chuck noll and the steelers wasted 1980 - 1992 clinging to Noll and past glories).

    They need FRESH ideas from a FRESH coach.

    If Brady doesn't like that - too bad.

    do you ever have anything good to say and not in that wanna be bad a** tone, general patton? sheesh...

     



    He's one of the biggest negative nancies on this board. I rarely ever see him post something positive about this team.

    For once, I agree with you Jints.

    What deep stuff? You act like we have a deep game. We can't afford a legit deep threat, welker and our 2 te's. something has to give. How many short field receivers do you need on one team? No doubt welker is the best slot WR in the league, but my feeling is we have too much money tied up in the short game and no deep threats on this roster to speak of.
