Comment on: 'Patriots are beginning to look more coordinated on offense'
Posted 12/31/2009 10:55:14 EST
blastor138 - you apparently missed my point; in 2005 the Patriots had changed coordinators and some key personnel and endured a rough season - all year the gripe was "the offense is too predictable, t more »

The Patriots planned to pull their starters much earlier than they did; Wade's hit on Harrison and Fisher's reaction to it nearly caused a riot on the Titans sidelines between Bruschi and Titans playe more »

Hey Otis, it's called GROWING PAINS. The Patriots went through this exact same process in 2005. It figures the Globe, a paper without a clue, is now noticing that as they grow together they get more c more »

Hey Shank, it's called gelling at the right time. And you better not have jinxed the Patriots here. more »

"The offense is too predictable. The O-coordinator is terrible." sniper99 and seanomac757, were you saying these things in 2005 under first-year O-coordinator Josh McDaniels? Because everyone else was more »

Tony's top five flaws and what they really mean - 1 - Yes, they can get more predictable - they did so in 2005. The play-calling is the same as it was in Josh McDaniels' rookie season of 2005. 2 - The more »

BTW Tony, the Colts didn't self-destruct in 2005 because they pulled in the reigns - they self-destructed because they were a fraud team. more »

Tony, all the Indy loss did was add one more win to the Colts. The idea that history would have turned on a dime if the Patriots had won is absrd. The fact is the two teams are what they are - the Pat more »

Lappy22 - the evidence you cite does not support your argument. We watched the video, we listened to those who actually took time to break down the video, and the end result is that the premise that M more »

Posted 12/16/2009 06:45:49 EST
No, this is not some kind of fundamental shift in strategy - the Patriots are going to throw the ball a lot when they can get the guys open. They ran a lot because it worked; once the receivers get in more »

mardak, you don't have the right to lecture anyone about living in denial. Multiple this and multiple that and yet the actual game film discredits all of the ripping of Moss. What does this say about more »
Posted 12/16/2009 06:32:05 EST
Bob Ryan shows again why he is "the best sportswriter in Boston" in myth only. The reality is Moss had a bad game; nowhere did he quit on anything. Moss blocked for his teammates, he ran his routes co more »

npxm is not correct. The three SB trophies were not won with defense, as strong as the defense no doubt was. The 2003 season in particular showcased this. It took offense to outfight the Titans, the B more »

There's no point in worrying that the Patriots haven't beaten a good team on the road so far - they just have to play out the season and keep improving where they can. more »

The Colts benefit from pass-interference calls more than most teams. Drew Brees is only a .500 quarterback after Thanksgiving; Brady is .750-plus. more »

Comment on: 'Not much reason in the arguments for Patriots’

So Shank, why should the Patriots have punted the ball back to the Colts? Nowhere does Shank or any of the other Hatriots make a credible case for WILLINGLY giving the ball back to a quarterback who - more »

How important is getting the bye? It isn't. Yes, the Patriots' five Superbowls in the Kraft era have come in bye seasons, but the record of bye teams that make the Superbowl has not been great - Pitts more »
