In response to wozzy's comment:
All of our players sux, especially our defensive players!
Chung sux, McCourty sux, Brace sux, Gregory sux, Edelmen sux, Mayo sux.... who did I forget?
I mean our linebackers are good but they can't cover, we'll be lucky to reach a 500 record with this pass defense!
How is BB ever going to win a Super Bowl again with this horrible defense? Look at all the yards they give up!!!
Josh McDaniel's doesn't know what he's doing, this is a disaster! Can't we hire O'Brien back already!?
Look how much a run game is helping, not at all! You people know nothing, this is a passing only league, running is a thing from a bygone era, wake up! Running has no bearing on the passing game at all, play action is useless...
Belichick is a good coach but jeez he can't draft for anything, it's a wonder we win any games...
Just wondering how you people are feeling today... thankful?
Dear Idiot Homers:
The Patriots were grossly underachieving earlier in the year. As a result, they have lost three games, two of them to vastly inferior opponents, and barely escaped the likes of the Jets and Bills, at home. Over the past two games, the Patriots have finally begun to play like THE PATRIOTS, in crushing Indy, and the pathetic Jets. But, losing those three games has put this team in a position where they most likely will not receive a playoff bye, and will have to beat both Baltimore and Houston on the road, in order to advance to the SB.
So...go ahead and crow about how stupid the critics of this team were. The fact of the matter is that the criticisms over the first 9 games were dead on...and warranted.
Glad to see the Pats back on track. But, the next few games, @ Miami, and home against the 49ers and Texans, will tell us whether the Pats will be serious SB contenders. The way they have played the past two weeks, I like their chances.
But, there are still concerns. Not the least of which is their place-kicker, Stephen Gostkowski. Does anyone feel confident whenever this guy lines up any FG? The other concerns are injury related. Will Gronk, Vollmer, Mankins, Jones, and Hernandez be 100% come playoff time?
