[QUOTE]In Response to Re: What team is rated LAST in yardage D? : So, I guess that, in your opinion, the Raid-uhs ability to shoot themselves in the foot early in the game, when it was STILL a game (via stupid Raid-uh penalties), was a result of tremendous Patriot game planning. They cost themselves at least 10 points with typical Raid-uh penalties in the first half. Then there's the Seymour dumb play on 3rd and 9 from the Pats 21 on the first possession. Think they would have picked up the 1st down without that penalty? Two 5 yarders in teh 2nd QTR took them, conceivably, from a FG attempt from the 35 to a punt from the 45. I believe we Patriot fans call those "drive killers". sad that it took penalties to keep the Raid-uhs from a scoring attempt there, NOT anything the Pats D did. Then, when they still could have done something, after closing the score to 14-10, with their home crowd ACTIVELY AND VOCALLY behind them, they committed another 15 yard penalty on the kickoff, moving the ball from the Pats 21 to the 36 yard line. As a Pats fan, where would YOU want to start a drive from? The Raid-uhs did themselves in yesterday. But then again, it's the Raid-uhs we were playing. 500+ yards given up to the Raid-uhs? 366 passing yards to a 2nd tier QB? Sorry, but nothing here to gloat about, regarding "winning" the game.

Tell you what explain to me how Seymours penalties affect to the D giving up 500+ yards and I'll be fully happy to admit you're right.
I like how you harp on Raid"er" penalties but most came on the D not the O and that you think a FG on the 35 is a sure thing (which any FG past the 30 yrd line is no sure thing) is a reason why you think the D was that bad.
I might not say all my "r"s but I do type them out, does this make you foolish for spelling 'uh' when the pronunciation typically heard is closer to an "a" sound, well this is true but it still doesn't mean that a swallow carrying coconut shells is African, it could still be European.
And, that my friend is how they won the game.... oh yes there was a monkey with a umbrella somewhere in there too
