    Need D line help and pass rush first. A good D would force Sanchez into errors. Watch Pitt get at him next week

    In Response to Randy Moss/Larry Fitzgerald/DEEP THREAT:
    [QUOTE]The offensive line underperformed today and that's an understatement. However, when Brady did have time, I saw Brady scanning the field multiple times because nobody was open. I was ok with trading Moss when we traded him because I believed in the addition by subtraction theory. I also trusted Belichick with his personnel moves. When Moss was released by the Vikings, I started a thread on getting him back and I was told that it's pointless to take Moss back because our new "Bradys' favorite guy is the open guy" offense is better. For a while it was. I also said we should try to trade for Larry Fitzgerald and again, I was told we don't need a true deep threat because our new "Brady's favorite guy is the open one" offense is better served than having a deep threat. Now that we lost and now that we saw Welker and Branch are NOT good enough to get us a big play or two when we need it, let's open up this conversation again. I'm not whining or saying "I told you so" because it's easy to start these threads after you lose. Now that we see we weren't good enough to win a Super Bowl this year, it's easier to analyze our offense.

    The Jets played awesome on D today. I don't think the deep threat would have helped much just like it didn't help earlier in the year when we lost to the Jets. Brady needed to be top notch today and he wasn't. The pick he threw in the first quarter changed the momentum and we never got it back. I don't want to over simplify what went wrong today but I'm hanging this one on Brady. He's the dude making 20 mil per and he's the one we count on to step up in these games.

    That being said, yes I would love Fitzgerald if we could get him. I like his game much better than Moss'.  I don't know whether the Pats are Counting on tate being that guy or not but from what I saw this year he isn't capable yet.Stretching the D can only help this offense.

    I've said it a thousand times on the draft thread ... PATS MUST DRAFT A STUD PASS RUSHING SPECIALIST OLB!!!!!

    And clearly a tall deep ball threat WR is required ... draft, FA, whereever, just get one.  Jets went out and bought all the free agents ... its an arms race, spend some money!

     I knew a post like this was coming. They won 3 superbowls without a deep threat. They were 14-2, they creamed this team a month ago 45-3, they had the best offense in the NFL. They did not lose because of Moss, they lost because the Jets were better and the Patriots played some mind boggling dumb football. If we still had Moss it would have been even worse. Didn't you guys watch the Patriots play the Jets in week 2.

    our first need is some pass rush - d-line or olb. - we had ZERO sacks today - ZERO!
    second need is shore up the o-line - brady was sacked like 58 times today !

    Can we please stop the "They won 3 Super Bowl Stuff."

    That is in the far flung PAST! Let it go. It's a new reality out there, and we have to figure out how to adjust.

    I agree that the whole "we won 3 super bowls without a deep threat" isn't good enough anymore. It's a different league now with different rules, philosophies, and personnel.

    I'm not saying that Moss or Fitzgerald would have gotten us a win today. All I'm saying is that the season is over now and we know how it ended. So it's a good time to GO BACK and discuss a deep threat or lack thereof.

    Re: Randy Moss/Larry Fitzgerald/DEEP THREAT

     I repeat, did you guys not watch the Patriots play the Jets in week 2 with Moss. Cromartie would have covered him and Revis would have taken Welker away. With Moss on the roster their would have been no Branch. Brady, except for 2007 has never been a great deep ball passer. Tate was open on that deep ball and Brady just plain old missed him. The Patriots had the best offense in the NFL this year! They clobbered this team a month ago.

    we need o/d line help and we need a dependable reciever it doesnt help that the safties r playing in the box basically so a deep threat would be nice ....moss wouldnt run his routes so im glad hes gone but ftiz would be nice or through draft idc we need someone plain and simple

    A deep threat also opens things up for the tight ends

    Frequently, the Jets didn't even have a safety deep over the top of one side of the field because they knew that the Pats don't have a legitimate deep threat

    I do think pass rush was an issue but...  We should have beaten them.  We just picked a really poor time to have a bad game.  They played excellently, we played poorly.  That's about the size of it.
