How do a few people, not just Rusty, constantly give BB a pass on how the team is coached and plays but can turn and place all the blame on Brady and McD. How many time does it have to hit them in the face that team is what it is... BB has his finger print on everything. This is more then a trend the results are years in the making, just accept this is what the Pats have become. This is a weekly gameplan, try to exploit weaknesses, and only run the ball if it is there team. Now you may not agree with this type of play but this is how the team is ran and you need to step into reality and accept it or but the blame where it belong at BB's feet.
Am I way off base? How can there be any real conversation when people are in denial over the fact the coaching runs the team the way they want, win or lose. Brady has shown if they call for running the team will run more, If the coaches don't think someone is not working out they change personnel. Brady doesn't tell the coaches in the 30 sec or less to get the next play ran what personnel to sub in. If BB doesn't like how the game is being managed by his OC he can tell him what his wishes are or change strategy at half time or during game... he could do anything but stand on the sideline like a wounded duck letting his team be ran to the ground by others.
It is so frustrating for every topic to get change with such a faulty logic argument.
CS, Yesterday was the ONLY GAME LOSSED ALL SEASON LONG that the PATRIOTS DIDN'T HAVE A LEGIT CHANCE TO WIN towards the end of REGULATUION. Believe it or not, its true. The other 4-losses were all very controversial, last minute type endings. The coaches and staff are responsible for preparing the team well enough to be in position to win the game. Yesterday, BB and staff had a sound game plan, but when your star, HOF QB does not execute on the throws/plays that are uncontested and he really should, you can't expect to win. Thats like uncontested drops....NO EXCUSE, especailly for a HOF, all time great like Tom. TB performs well, we have a chance to win and normally do. If not, we almost always lose. He didn't perform well yesterday, and this time in either half, with his many poor throws and that clutch sack, therefore, we lost. He never made his characteristic push the way he normally has. Its that simple. It was a TEAM LOSS including the coaches, BUT after all is said and done, if TOM completes his open throws, we keep the ball many more plays and likely score more points. IF YOU ARE THAT GUY whenever the team wins, then YOU ARE THAT GUY whenever the team loses. Fair or not, it is the way it works for eveyone outside of the organization, media, fans. Especialy when its clear that YOU didn't play the way everyone is expecting that you will. ITS THE PRICE OF GETTING MOST OF THE GLORY when you win in pro sports. Bill's selfblame is designed to take the heat off of his players, just like truly great coaches always do........
I yelled at the television when he missed a wide open Edelman...I did. I was in a roomful of people and I swore rather loudly...everyone said, relax, it's early, are you expecting him to complete every pass? Truth is if we were to win that game yesterday he had to. I swore again when he missed Collie. Other than that I didn't think he was bad. I'd give him a B, but we all know by now that a B isn't good enough with the way this team is built. I don't fault him on that sack. I thought the touchdown run was very good. I thought the miss to Edelman in the endzone was bad, but he followed it up with a bullet for the touchdown the very next play.
This guy really doesn't have anything to throw to right now...I'm surprised people don't realize this. There is no redzone threat. There is no deep threat. There is no dynamic talent teams have to game plan for. Look at what Manning has right now...he has time to throw, he's got two backs that are better than what we have, he's got a dynamic tightend, and three very very good receivers. Brady has Edelman and sometimes Vareen...not good enough. Nowhere near it.
All very true. Can't argure a bit of it. Its one thing, though, to make the throws he missed and have them dropped, and completely another to miss wide open receivers with nearly no defensive influence on the play. I agree that he needs more than he has, but at 36 going on 37, he won't be improving on how he throws and his accuracy regardless of who is there to make the catch. A poor pass is a poor pass. I hope he has at least another year in him to show at least he can be consistant, because this team when healthy should be very very good once again, and this time with more depth than any other. Fingers crossed that a 37-year old TB can improve upon his accuracy from this year. In all A GREAT SEASON! GO PATS!
