    The Pats are failing, and few want to look at the main reason!!

    Fans around here have been so into kicking butt, being up by 35-0 before halftime, and they fail to see where this has killed this organization, and more important, it has taken the life out of our once - one of the greatest, or maybe the greatest QBs ever!! - He was once compared to Joe Montana as the best ever, not because of Stats.  Montana usually threw 250-300 yds, and he ran a very conservative blend of running/passing, but his team was always in the game.  He dictated the "terms" of the game whether ahead or behind, and you always knew you would have an excellent chance of being in the game and winning it at the very end.

    Our own TB was the same way.  If the Steelers scored 1st, he would come right back at them and score, and if he was up by 10 in the 1st Q he may not score another point till the second half when the Steelers or whoever, cut the lead to 7 or 3 points, and then on the next set of downs he would come out of the huddle, and you could tell how the team came out that TB was ready and they all followed suit, and march down the field to score.  He played to the score, keeping the team in the game, and then the final 2 minutes and wow; how many games he won in that last second.

    Yesterday TB said after the game that they got behind and never "dictated the terms of the game".  That was huge!!  The young pre Moss/Welker QB always dictated the game behind or out in front!

    Brady has lost that most important intangible; the one that keeps himself and his team in the game for 60 minutes.  When he came out down 7-0 yesterday, you could see the energy of the team, and it wasn't like it is at being up 7-0 as they usually are, where the SB era Pats came out like they were in full charge, and that was Brady's confidence in ALL situations where he needed to jack up his play with team coming out of the huddle full of confidence!  When he came in for Bledsoe's injury in 01 and sparked this team, and it was a team going nowhere, they all rallied behind him the way he rallied the team from all kinds of deficits.  The team knew it had a chance to win every game, and a true star was born ala Bill Russell!!

    We need that part of you to come back my friend!  Without that, this team is going nowhere.  When you play like it doesn't matter what the score is, and we are going to win this thing, the whole team rises to your level, offense and defense.

    Is it all your fault?  Hell no, but your leadership back then was unparalled, and all of us would trade all your BS stats for a great team leader who never shrugged at a deficit that he couldn't "dictate the terms of the game to".

    As our own great Bill Russell would say:

    It isn't how many rebounds you get, but when you get them!  and that my friend is what we need from you right now and nothing less will suffice!

    We are the same front running , cant come back or control the game team we've been since 07..Like I thought.

    Drafting a couple Rb's aint gonna change that, nor is making your defense a speed bump to the endzone....

         Are you serious?  Kind of hard to score, when you are not on the field. If it were as easy as matching score for score, we would have 11 super bowl wins in a row. 
        You have to actually be able to STOP the other team. thats what defense is for. Brady isnt god, he cant do it all by himself. And if you think Montana never had  bad games, then you werent paying attention.
        This team has alot to work on, but Brady should be the least of our worrys.

    The offense can't score when they are sitting on the bench.  Granted, they didn't show a whole lot when they were on the field, but they have to be out there more than 1:30/quarter.  But I do agree with you that there have been many, many games that Brady does not seem to have the same "fire" as he once did.  Very seldom do we see him going along the bench getting the offense fired up.
    Did anyone notice how on every 3rd down, the db's were always 2 to 3 yards or more beyond the 1st down marker.  It was ridiculous!!!  And, they never moved towards the ball carrier/receiver until he was beyond that marker.  Don't give up the big play????  Stop them in the red zone???  Give me a break!!!  When the opposing offense has every drive over 5 minutes there is no way that any team can win.  They had no business even being close to winning at the end of that game with the way the entire team played.  Hopefully the loss will teach them a lesson.

    We wouldn't have scored a td until 2 minutes left in the game if it were not for the defense intercepting Ben inside the 20. Think about that.

    Our offense was the worst I've seen since a few Matt Cassel games. Pitt defense knew we would keep throwing and we did them the favor of doing it anyway.

    The defense looked like swiss cheese yes, but the offense reminded me of when I was 3 years old and couldn't figure out how to fit that square peg in the round hole?.

    jerh5 is absolutely RIGHT!!!  It has to be VERY demoralizing to that Patriots offense to watch their D give up gobbs of yards and ToP to the other team.  How many of you recall a moment in the first half when the camera focused on Brady and we can clearly see him mouthing the words.. " Come on D"?  Secondly, when the other D is playing extremely well, which the Steelers were, the offense has to count on their D to provide support and stop the other team.  It is not Brady or the O, it is the D and unless they fess up and start playing some, this team will not go too far.

    Yeah, as bad as it looked, the D didn't give up a ton of points, but they DID give up 40 minutes of the game. That didn't help. The offense can't really get into a groove when they don't ever have the ball. After a 3 & out, if your D ,in turn, puts up a 3 & out, then the offense is right back on the field, maybe they get going a bit. Long sustained drives by PIT kept the offense on the bench. It's hard to get going when you spend 2/3rds of the game on the bench.

    Defense is great.In passing league they have given up the most yards overall per game . Rank 31st in completion percentage, 30th in yards per game, 27th in QB rating against. It's obviously not an issue.

    Yes, no one is responsible for the TE at the moment but the D is a work in progress so in a few weeks they will figure it out.

    Good post. Subtle but significant point. And I agree with your position, but the one thing you have not factored in it seems is that football's role in modern society. At least in the States, football is the "civilized" surrogate for war, so too some extent, fans do want to see their team go out and crush, annilate, destroy (you get the drift) the opposition, and that is what the "run up the score" mentality appealed to. Having said that, I agree with you that ultimately that takes away from the most effective strategy for winning football games, but for many fans that is not the point anyway. (Ever notice how many wild-eyed, crazily dressed fans there are at NFL games these days? Don't see that at any other professional sport venue, do you? Football is about getting rid of one's aggression and frustration for many fans.) But for me, it's still a game of strategy and I would like to see the Pats get a lot more strategic than they have been lately!!

    Re: The Pats are failing, and few want to look at the main reason!!

    As soon as I saw Kevin in on the 1st snap i said "here we go"

    The pats are gonna try to honor Faulk by throwing him right in the mix as a starter and then he went out, and I thought , Ok, they just wanted him to get in real quick, and then he was in most the game, and although he played well, when he is in, that means we want to pass and defenses know this too.

    Not enought Benny and Ridley..

    but when the defense is on the field for a quarter, you cant blame the offense for trying to speed things up a bit seeing the other offense take up all the dam time, but its not ideal..


    There was plenty to blame to share...Offense stunk due to defense stinking and special teams was basically Danny running it out the 20 all day...Could have saved some energy and just take a knee.  The punting team of Pitt didnt come out till the end, so its hard to judge our punt return team.

    Coaching was awful, no way around it.

    I bet B.B. had money on the game...

    Re: The Pats are failing, and few want to look at the main reason!!

    Wow!  A lot of good stuff, Schuller, if you remember, our SB era Pats would win by 3 points and we would beat the crap out of teams on both sides of the ball, and that is much more satisfying because you get to see a great game, and we would pull most of the close ones out, and look great doing it with lots of physical play.

    I hear that Brady didn't dictate the terms of the game back then, but now he does?  

    When we were playing and the Steelers, this was a pretty low scoring game considering how much offensive pressure the Steelers were putting on us.  We had many games like that in the SB era, and Brady always dictated the attitude of his entire team, and the D fed off of him.  You always knew you were going to have a great chance to win if the game got close as Sundays game was, but TB didn't have that fire he has lately only when up by 21 late.  He used to come out of the huddle and you knew something great would happen win or lose in the old days.  Was he 100%?  No!  Of course not, no one is, no he or Montana, but you would take them in their prime over any one else in the game with 1:30 left needing some points to win SBs.

    Since 07, Brady always seems to lose something when he can't get something started when he is behind or the game is close.  After the 1st or 2nd sets of downs last year against the Jets when he threw that high short pass that was picked off, many of us knew that something huge was going to be lost because of that play and it was Brady who looked most frustrated, and if you don't think that didn't effect the team, well it did.  He didn't seem to let it go and just go out and play the game, and it was a close game, the Jets didn't show some great offensive play, Sanchez just kept making the plays and Brady didn't follow suit,

    He couldn't dictate the terms of the game where in his younger days, even thou he didn't call all his plays and throw 55 td passes and 4500 yards, he always played to the score, and that means he would somehow score when needed to keep the game close, and we had some years where we gave up some points, but Brady always did his job. 

    The Brady of late is a great passer, but the young Brady was a great QB where it mattered most.  He brought a great amount of spirit to and out of his teammates, because he always found a way to keep them in the game.  He had average WRs at best and you just know you would take Givens, Patten, Brown, and Branch back then over Moss, Welker and the rest of the last 5 years if you had a big game in the playoffs on the line every time. 

    Brady was clutch and the players not only believed in him which is just an opinion of how good he could be, but they "knew" he would get them there far more than not.  

    Brady had magic which Montana had because they did it best in the most important of games like SBs.

    I am not discrediting any of the opinions about the D or the lack of using the running game or any of the other things gone wrong.

    I still know if Brady would be more of a great QB in the true meaning of the position which is managing the game 1st and foremost, and bring that magic back into the team that got everyone to play "almost" way over their heads.

    We need you Magic!!

    It's funny that we are debating Brady's ability to keep them in games, only two weeks after he led a masterful game winning drive against the Cowboys. He took them down when it mattered most yesterday, and threw a TD to Gronk, which was ruled short. I got the impression that he was expecting BB to challenge it(which he certainly should have), and then had to come up with something when he didn't. That burned a almost a whole minute off the clock before they could score again.

    Not Brady's fault that Ghost pretty much stumbled over the ball instead of kicking it. Not Brady's fault that the defense repeatedely got the Steelers into 3rd and Long and repeatedely let them convert them.

    Got alot of problems with this post. 

    1st - Brady didn't really dictate anything until probably 2007.  Prior to then, imo, his OC's dictated things.  Plus, he had a better running game.  Further, the offense didn't need to dictate because the defense did.  There was talent galore on that legendary defense.  It's no different with the 49ers.  They had a great defense, too.   

    In Brady's world now, he is dictating/running things, because a) he's that good b) he has unbelieveable weapons c) he has a limited running game, and d) he has to because the defense can't help a majority of the time as it did in the SB days. 

    The pats have a suspect defense that can be opportunistic when they are playing with the lead (ala Indy Colts with Manning), but it is hard for them to win and make stops when they are behind.  Brady has to be nearly perfect for today's pats to be successful, and when he faces really good defenses that can challenge his skills and get some 3 and outs, then the pats are put in a difficult position.  Trust me, I've seen this movie before.

    In Response to Re: The Pats are failing, and few want to look at the main reason!!:
    Overall, agree. You come off a Bye and adjust late on D, look horrendous on offense and then make a bad onside kick decisioin and it's seriously the worst all around Pats game I've seen since last January. But, it's tiring watching people scan for the scapegoat on D because BRady and Welker don't play defense. The jig is up and has been up. If this team wants to go deep into the playoffs, you have to run the ball early in games. Even if you go 3 and out and you're trying to run, it sets up the offense for a better position later in games. The team isn't going 15-1 and this was a game I had as a possible loss. Pitt wasn't abotu to lose 2 years in a row at home to NE. It was going to be a tough game, Pitt had a nice gameplan, and our offense was a joke acting like man coverage was somehow confusing. Just run the ball becuase the shotgun spread doesn't work when teams can cover in man! Everyone wants blood out of stone from the D that just lost Bodden and had no Dowling again, but where is this team's loaded all world offense? Even at the end before the TD Brady was wasting a slew of time at the goal line inthe shotgun!! Why?!! Run it in! Run a no huddle and just QB sneak it! Unreal.
    Posted by RidingWithTheKing

    Totally agree.  Our offense looked like it had never seen man coverage before.  Where the heck is adjustments in the game.  Big deal we planned for a zone coverage, it wasn't there, switch the plan!!  Not that difficult is it???  And agree as well with the waste of time near the end of the game.  He ran the play clock down to about 2 seconds before snapping it, if he can read a defense so well, what took him so long with those reads???

    UD6 - when Brady is down like yesterday, he (they) did not dictate the terms of the game which for him is the offense and he said almost those exact same words.  When he is ahead, I agree, but he doesn't have magic in a dogfight and everyone wants a guy who can find ways to win when it seems impossible, and under those circmstances, Brady as a young and one of the greatest QBs ever in most peoples mind being compared to Montana, and in the last 1:30 or so against the Rams in the SB, are you telling me he didn't dictate the terms of the game for the entire 1:30?  He absolutely did and Madden said it at least 4-5 times how he should just kneel down and run the clock out and go to OT. After the 3rd or 4th pass, Madden suddenly started to believe, and at the end of that game, Madden knew he had seen a legend being born.  Brady dictated the way that game was going because of intangibles, and without intangibles, you will just be a guy passing the ball.  Brady is like Bill Russell, doing magical things to win or keep a game close by knowing when to turn it on and never allowing a team to get to far out in front.

    Not so much anymore, thou vs the Cowboys he showed some promise, but yesterday?  The offense stunk, and left a poor D out way too long, never holding the ball long enough to at least give the D a rest.

    The Steelers offense in the time/total yds they had the ball was almost exactly the same ratio as the Pats time of possession to total yds.  Both were about 2/1 yards to time with the ball.  The offense showed little yesterday where they could have stayed with the Steelers, the Pats D may have settled down and maybe we walk away with a win.

    Re: The Pats are failing, and few want to look at the main reason!!

    You are misremembering Montana. Great QB, maybe the greatest- but he lost games, he failed on some game winning drives. The 49ers were one and done three years in a row in the playoffs. He was not perfect. Brady was not perfect prior to 2005 either. They were 9-7 in 02, 11-5 in 01 when they won the SB.

    Edleman is somewhere combing his hair in the mirror singin "mirror, mirror" by Lil Wayne...lol

    Price gets in on an offensive play but not on special teams!?!?  Color me confused!

    Chad is not even looked at on the backside against the 4th CB?

    Hernandez gets only 2 looks?

    Ok, my bad, I forgot we only had the ball for 5 minutes...

    UD - Do you remember the 2nd SB win vs the Panthers?  The Pats were up by 4 entering the 4th quarter, Delhomme caught fire, and our D was toast for the rest of the game and Brady had no choice but to be Tom Brady and he, as usual, played to the score, matching Carolina score for score squeezing out a high scoring close victory.  Delhomme started to dictate the terms of the game, and Brady played him even winning it at the end.  Delhomme thru a TD pass to tie the score and in the last 1:04, Brady took his team down to .04 seconds and they kicked a FG to win it.  He was throwing the ball all over the place, and he just out played the other gut to win the game by dictating the terms of the game by out playing Delhomme just enough to win the game.  

    Brady was a master at the last second heroics, and the D had some huge letdowns.

    Magic my friend, that guy had magic!!
