In response to Mike-J-D's comment:
Here are some facts that I saw...
Not getting points at the end of the first half was unacceptable. Poor clock management and taking the grounding penalty was beyond rookie stuff. It was high school freshman stuff.
Brady set a career high in pass attempts and scored just 23 points from it.
Terrible safety play to give up the score at the end of the game. This is why BB dials up the prevent when the Pats have a lead.
Do you think getting two first downs in order to run out the clock at the end of the game was too much to ask from this prolific offense? I don't. They had two drives to acheive this, and failed.
I love how the D shut the door from then 2nd qtr on with two turnovers, nice stops, Seattle unable to do anything and just because our offense doesn't do anything in the second half other than blow chances left and right, poor clock management, etc, this is our D's fault.
I am not defending Wilson's shallow angle on that last TD, but the root cause goes way back to the 3rd qtr and the offense just falling asleep.
58 passes with the lead in the rain?!!!!
I agree. People choose to spin things how they want. If all you look at is that one long TD pass, it's easy to just blame the D. Shame that it happened but it's the easy way out. Looking at the bigger picture, things go a little deeper than that.
