Now we are a few days out from Sundays game. I've read hundreds of posts for and against, Brady, Welker, BB, Offense, Defense etc.. So after I've digested this I can only come with are we in it to win it, or just be real good?
So if everyone can agree BB is in charge I feel he should say to Mr. Kraft the following:
"Boss I run the team as coach, D coord, GM, I picked every coach, player, & ball boy. I have maybe the best QB of all time, but just can't seem to win the big one without that D I inherited 10+ years ago. With that said is being a really good team good enough?"
your post would be valid if the offense could actually score in the big postseason games....in their last 5 playoff losses the pats offense has scored 13, 17, 21, 14, and 14 respectively....now you're trying to tell me the defense has been the problem? the numbers dont lie.
Here's what's sad about those numbers: The 21 was vs the Jets, correct? That TD came late in the game when it was over. In SB 42, they scored late, and it was for barely eeking the 14 points!
So, they either barely score late when they wasted so much time elswhere in the game or they go dry for entire halves like on Sunday or in SB 46.
As I've been saying for almost 2 years here, the real problem is actually the offense, not the defense.
yup, ive felt that way too.. a lot of the offensive problems are forgot about when they score 50 plus against a bad team but they have shown for several years that they can't score on good teams in the playoffs. hate to say it but the same thing is going to happen next year unless big changes are made.. they could even keep brady but they have to change their scheme, become more physical, be able to run the ball down teams throats.. if you watch other teams that run the ball, often times they get stopped early in the game but they stick with it and wear down defenses. by the 2nd half they are able to do anything, run , pass whatever,.. if you look at the patriots offense they struggle in the 2nd half.
