In response to portfolio1's comment:
I suppose you stopped watching the game after the Browns last score... No? Well then why give up on a year where we are in the hunt and even have a shot at the #1 seed?
You want the Lombardi handed to you?
Ok.. listen. I get that Gronk is the most important player after TB. I get that this team has been a different and much more dynamic team with Gronk. I agree with that. I get that. But we have a lot of talented guys on O. Some fo them are very young but they could rise to the ocassion. ANd the three rookies have had time.. had games to develop. This O is much better now than it was in the first 6 or 7 games this year.
We have Vereen. We will need Ridley (yes Ridley wil have to NOT fumble). We have Blount who makes some plays. We have Julian. He iwll have to come up big and not drop big plays. We have Amendola. He will have to step up. Hopefully Dobson, Thomkins and maybe even Boyce can up their game. They DO have talent and are showing they are better than opening day.
I think the biggest factor, the biggest help wil have to come from the O line. And that is cetainly not bankable. But still they have a shot.
We have to win out for #1 seed. Possible though I expect Miami is not going to make that game easy. But consider. If Denver can lose one game (they may not) and we can get #1 seed then .... THEN WE COULD PLAY MANNING HERE IN JANUBRRRRRRRRRRY. Manning on the road, in Foxboro, in the cold.... We would have a shot. AND YOU WOULD WANT TO TAKE THAT SHOT....
No. It is Stupid to give up here. You dont get it handed to you. You earn it. Are we underdogs? Yes. But we got some players.... This team CAN do it. And if any coach can do it or any QB can do it it would be BB and TB.
This is worth staying to see. Just like when Denver was ahead 24-0. Just like the Houston game. Just like today when we had 2:39 to score TWO touchdowns.
I didnt leave. Did you?
Grow some balls man.
Man I positively love what you're preaching and smoking. Sure, I'll take a hit. Pass it over here to your left. I may have fallen off the flying carpet, but fear not I'm still on the bandwagon.
OK THEN. Nice to have you back.... As Humphrey Bogart once said, this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
