With all the **** the Jets are talking- I really want the Pats to destroy them.

K. O'Connell being named a team captain is a joke too lol

Play calling was atrocious, pass rush non-existent, and the offense could not capitalize on anything. You cant send 5-7 guys every play and not have someone open, or at least be man coverage.

Don't really know what to say about the game besides 'piss poor'.

Brady missed on some key passes. While the D wasn't great again- it allowed only 16 points.
Granted that was due to the offense eating up the clock. It just couldn't capitalize.
Edelman looked beastly though. I'd love to see them go 4 wide with Welker and him. One on each side of Brady.

The defense played pretty well. They played the standard bend-don't-break that the Pats have always thrived with. The defense had the offense in a position to take control of the game and run away with it. The big key to this game was the 8 points they left in the red zone early on.

They play calling has been bad, and the usage of their assets has been poor. They gave up on a running game that was working with Fred Taylor, they didn't use many 2 TE sets, they didn't use any 2 RB sets, and they gave up on going deep to Moss after the INT.

The best play the Pats have ever had was the double screen with Faulk & Pass because they could do so many things with it (fake it and go to another receiving option, go to Faulk one way or Pass the other, run a draw, run a reverse).... It's stupid that they don't run this play with Faulk and Sammy Morris (or get another RB to run it with Faulk)...

Another one that we've only ever seen a handful of times is the TE swing pass to Watson/Graham. When your little receivers are getting gobbled up on screens, why not run a screen to Watson and see if he can deter the defensive backs from being so physical with the other receivers...

Good defense, too sad to talk about the rest. Maybe we'll all be more optimistic later in the week.

The defense has negative pass rush right now. It is just non-existent.

Not the fault of the players. The Pats only blitzed 3 times last week.
