In response to stillgridlocked's comment:
How about a hall of fame quarterback that puts up a 62.1? That Seattle D is a hall of fame D? Yeah, they're good but not that good. When you pass every down how much of an advantage is that to the other team? That's too much of an advantage even for Brady to get over. Poor coaching and Brady had a bad day even considering they called 58 passing plays.
BB should have put Vereen in before he completely abandoned the running game altogether. Woodhead and Bolden (before he was injured) put up over 5 yards a carry between them. It doesn't matter whether they got most of it on 1 carry or not you keep running the ball.
The D flat out sucks. I don't even have a word to describe the secondary. BB should cut all of them except Dennard and pick up some hungry kids or old vets that will at least be able to stay within 2-3 yards of the receiver and look at the ball coming. Is that too much to ask?
No 2nd half adjustments - Seattle made adjustments - the Pats were outcoached again.
I'll also stick to the fact that the entire team is sucking wind in the 2nd half once again and worse in the 4th quarter. The other teams want it more. The Pats are just mailing it in. Their consistently poor 4th quarters show that. Fire the conditioning coaches.
When the Pats were winning their SB's they played smash mouth football and they out muscled the other teams in the 2nd half. They weren't sucking wind like these guys. The Pats may as well put 11 stamped envelopes on the field in the 2nd half.
In response to BabeParilli's comment:
You can't bemoan missed scoring opportunities and ignore allowing a 70 passer to put up a 133.
The 133 would not have occured for them if Brady doesn't toss 2 INTs, take two groundings or our own offense total 5 red zone trips with ZERO points.
It's so simple and people ignore it. The more CHANCES you give ANY QB in this game to make plays, the odds go up that he will. Why do you ignore how our offense goes cold and inept unable to push more points across or ice games?
WHat happened at the end, doesn't occur for Josh Wilson if he had committed to the run with Ridley in the first half.
How on earth can anyone here defend 58 passes and 16 runs, most of them the subbed in obligatory variety for Ridley, especially after the rprvious o2 games with how each Bolden and Ridley were used?
WHy change it?
Wouldn't it be easier to MAKE Seattle prove they could stop our rushing attack and playaction instead of assuming our rushing attack with Brady under center wouldn't work?
How odd. BB/McDaniels/Brady, whoever is responsible for this, is out-thinking themself. BIG TIME.
Those are the cold, hard facts. That and people unable to admit that our offense can't fall asleep like that on the road over and over and over.
Bottom 5 D for past 3 years and getting worse. # 32 for most of last year and heading there fast. Nuff said!
