I am chuckling at the BBWs who saw how we won SBs, then switched to a Colts formula with the Goodell rules coming into play in 2006, and somehow the BBWs can't see as we ground and pount into a title game vs a Coltsesque style Defense in Denver.
The O Line, Brady and the D all good across all 3 phases, Brady doesn't throw any TDs, but somehow ZBellino and his crew are in here to tell the more educated fans, that somehow we're all wrong.
You're not educated, you're an imbecile.
Yeah, I wonder how we'd factor in the loss against Baltimore last season when New England ran with Ridley all day, put up only 13 points and still found themselves scrambling for a win late in the game.
Personally, I thought it was a very "educational" game, re, running at all costs. I didn't see Ridley really helping the defense then. I also didn't see the defense helping the offense very much either (another playoff exit with 28 points allowed and zero turnovers created).
The only formula in football is this: execute well and you will win more often than you lose.
Whats funny is that our balanced 1st half game plan resulted in a 13 to 7 lead at half time. Lets look at what actually happened in the 2nd half.
We came out and held baltimore to a punt, great time to start putting the game away...but
We pass out of running formation for 6 yards, run ridley for 5 yards 1st down. SG, 5 yards, SG 24 yards, SG incomplete, SG woodhead B.S draw play for 2 yards, SG incomplete PUNT. 5 pases 2 runs only 1 power carry and it was a 5 yard 1st down.
Baltimore comes back and scores a td. Enter typical game plan when a game is close...
Now have 9 SG passes to 2 runs with only 1 being a power run. Ate up about 4 minutes of game clock in 2 drives, 2 crucial game defining fails right when baltimore just started to exploit our defense absent talib. Would have been nice to commit to run and run time off, give our D a chance to rest after the last let down.
Baltimore scores another td. We realize our D has just been gutted twice and our offense didnt help by putting them right back on the field. We need to run the ball, we do.
Rid for 9
Rid short yardage stopped
Rid short yardage succesful( hey make sure you factor his short yardage success into his ypc like you do with blount)
Rid runs out of the gun and unfortunately Bernard Pollard ends our season for the 4rth time in as many years.
Balance gave us a 13-7 half time lead. 9 pass to 2 run punt back to back failed drives was the 3rd qtr momentum killer that lost us the game.
But that won't stop you.
