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.
I get your point but the head cach delegates according to a gameplan. I think Mcd has a lot of restraints I'm sure ... mainly that the plays fall into a conservative category that is approved at one time or another.
The fact that certain plays are run and there is a lack of imagination when certain players (your best athletes) are not utilized is ultimately Belichicks fault not only in game but all week in preparation not being able to emphasize the players that should be getting the ball and designing plays to do that. Also it is Belichick who hand picked McD as the OC after Weis left and has shaped the offensive philosophy of this team.
McD gets blamed for not having the backbone to implement his own signature and philosophy on the offense. This is his job . The fact that he has BB lording over his every move is no excuse. Have some balls. Show some creativity.
ONe play comes to mind... It is the stretch play action play. This play went in early in the year when the pats were struggling on offense and suddenly this play gave Brady al kinds of time because the pass rush was washed down the line of scrimmage.
It worked again yesterday but Brady missed the long throws. The point is why not run different patterns off this basic dropback and hit them. Keep running it until they stop it. Run screens off it. Dopn't always go for the home run.
Another formation was the opening series. They opened with Vereen and Develin split in the backfield. I was like thats different... Then brady threw to Edelman for 4 yards. first play of the game. I dont remember that formation again so I don't know why it was used .... I thought maybe Develin would get some catches since he has shown good hands. ... not so much. thing is , just too much fail and not enough attacking strategy.
I thought the whole game was disjoined untill they spread and let Brady go a bit. Also why did they not take the field goal or have a real RB in during the Two point conversion?
Its plays like the 4th and 2 sack and 2-pt conversion when you really understand how Tom's lack of mobility limits the team nowadays. It just doesn't help that everyone on D is getting faster while our QB at 36, going on 37, is only getting that much slower.
I agree Tom is one of the slowest QB's but that 4 down sack is on the O-line not many could avoid a DL getting back there that fast... that was a wiff of a block. Mobile QB's like Kap and Wilson still get sacked. On a Key downs 4 man rush got two sacks... both due to bad blocking.nPats D didn‘t sniff P, so sad to see.
