In response to wozzy's comment:
Wow, you are a trip. Talk about team sport yet you sight the running game as the sole reason the Pats O has improved (slightly). They were a top 2 O last year also. So, they've catapulted to # 1, awesome!
Again way to deflect from the obvious... The Bungles sux. When Ridley gets traded to the Jaguars and has to run behind that horrid offensive line, lets make comparisons.
The thing you don't get, will never undertsnad is that football is a team sport. To you quarterback play happens on an island, runningback play happens on an island, wide receiver play happens on an island... it's an affliction commonly referred to as "fantasy football-itis."
Too much Colin Cowherd, too much fantasy football stats... go watch some nameless highschool team play, watch how all of their players success or failure depends on the players and schemes around them.
Again, you act as though they never ran the ball last year and any time it is even mentioned, you inflate like a Macey's Parade float.
Please show us a comment made about anything other than the rushing attack last year was ineffecttive at times and not good enough to take the ball away from Brady.
You B3tch and moan about them not using him more in the SB but your only expanation for that is the coaching. ???
The rest of us have maintained that the coaches know what they are doing and always try to put the team in a position to win.
It's really very simple. you run more when it' working and pass more when it's not.
Negative runs and putting your QB in a 3rd & 14, is ot a good thing. Positive runs putting your Qb in a 3rd and 1, is. Which would you chose if you were the coach? Which would you chose if your possessions were limited and you could not afford to waste any?
I say the coaches made the right decision last year.
If you don't agree then let them know, maybe you can get an apprentice towel boy job, but I doubt it.
How do you see the game plan shaping up against the 9'rs and Texans?
Do you think they'll run much?
Do you even know that aside from Denver (#9), the Pats have been running against the bottom 10 run D's in the league? That's the reality of it!
The REAL test will come against the #'s 2,4,7.......coming up!
Until then, you might want to keep all that helium in the tank. There is a national shortage you know.
