Not sure this got as much press as it should have.

I know the Pats were down 10 points with only about 2 minutes to go. I also know Tommy had his leg rolled up on by Suh but just imagine the firestorm if Manning got benched after losing his 2nd game in a row and the 1st seed over all.

Sure the Pats didn't have to worry about dropping out of their Division lead and had the 2 seed locked up but they need homefield just as bad as we need it.

Thing was that teams have been beating Tommy up for weeks now and it is starting to take it's toll. Gronk was taken out of the game by Miami, MIAMI!

Then there is the fact that Tommy is struggling to throw deep balls especially to the outside. He had a long bomb vs the Jets that hung up so long that a CB was able to cover ground and make an outstanding play on the ball.

In short Tommy looks just as old and beat up as Manning but it is not getting the press it should. At this point of this year he looks like a dink and dunker who can't throw deep anymore and doesn't have anyone to make a defender miss, breaking a tackle or forcing a defender into a bad angle and making him look better than he is.

Well, it's a poorly kept secret that the Patriots weren't trying to win that game (wink, wink). When the Patriots were only down two scores with two whole minutes to play, the only option Belichek had to avoid winning and securing the #1 seed and the home field advantage it entails was to sit Brady and let Garaffalo close out an otherwise perfectly executed game plan.

the gameplan was more conservative than anything I had seen ne run in quite some time. 5 passing attempts in the 1st half and running S Jax and Bolden on multiple 3rd and longs. I think the pats have been spooked by injuries this year and were hoping to beat a bad team with a conservative gameplan.

I disagree with the notion that Miami took Gronk out of the game. the gameplan pretty much did that. I also don't think Brady was benched so much as the game was over and he had been getting battered all game, specifically the series before and BB didn't want him getting hurt.

I couldn't believe he wasn't in the game on their last drive. All they had to do was get a score, either a FG or TD, and then recover an onside kick for a chance to tie and win in OT. It was bizarre to me.

Yet my buddy totally agreed with Belichick. He said that Brady had been getting hit all day, and in such an obvious passing situation, it was better to have him on the bench.

But all I could say was, this is for the #1 SEED in the AFC! You don't just give up like that when you have about a minute and a half to get a score on the board, then kick onside. I still disagree with pulling Brady. But I'm glad they did! :D

I wasn't. it was probably the most conservative gameplan I remember them coming out with outside of resting Brady the year prior. I think they were spooked with the injuries this year and thought they could steal a win from a bad team that looked like it had mailed it in in prior games.

2 weeks would certainly help, but I'm pretty sure it takes more than 2 weeks for a 38 year old to recover from a HAS. I'm not saying he won't be able to play, but Brady won't be 100%.

:Broncos:

I was waiting for this post.

They started Brady, who has been getting beat up since before we played them, Gronk and Amendola, who have both been hurt, in an effort to win the game.

They ended up allowing Tommy to get the **** kicked out of him and did not accomplish anything other than tell playoff teams to blitz the **** out of them.

I wonder if Tommy didn't hit that dump off to the HB around the middle of game that he took some 60+ yards to set up their TD, if Belly wouldn't have pulled him in the 3rd quarter.

Plus this was a lot like what Manning did vs Chefs, he was hurt but kept wanting to go back out and over come it though it was clear he was done that day (and for weeks after).

Pats go jumbo to try to establish a run game and max protect and Tommy still gets beaten up. Maybe bringing Eddlemann back helps him get rid of the ball quicker but time waits for no man, it is catching both Brady and Manning in equal measure.

They tried to win the 1 seed, played their starters VERY deep, allowed Brady to get beat up and then pulled him with time left on the clock.

Again I get it, they would have needed a Tebow miracle to win that game with that much time left on the clock but they went from a team that was going to be undefeated and dominate the NFL to a team that lost their last 2 games, vs non-playoff teams, and lost 4 out of their last 6 games.

People keep pointing out Manning's failings just thought it was time to point out Tommy's.

Played their starters deep? Half their starters are out. Two starters Gronk and Amendola barely touched the ball in Miami, by design.

Did you even read this thread? It started with some insane post about Brady being benched with 2 minutes left to go and how he's washed up. All things considered, all injuries considered, he's having a great year. That's worth noting on a thread predicated on Brady's demise.

The premise of this thread and what it is insinuating is stupid.

The more nauseating thing for me is how if you were to listen to the national media, they would convince the casual fan that the Pats are the most injured team in the NFL right now.

Have the Pats had big injuries to key players? Yes. Have other teams? Yes. The injury excuse card gets my panties in a bunch, even though as a fan, I can't help but use it as well sometimes.

Waaah! All of our players are hurt.
Waaah! The refs called penalties on us!
Waaah! The entire league is out to frame us for Deflategate.
Waaah! I can't pronounce words with 'r's.
Waaah!

I can definitely pronounce words with 'R's correctly...you are a loser...I said it many times and it kept coming out sounding like you are a loser, not losah, but loser. Not everybody in New England talks that way, just like not everyone from Colorado screws livestock.

people in Colorado smoke pot.

...since we're talking about stereotypes and all that.

Why do so many Pats fans make hundreds of posts on our board? It's because the know we are the team to beat. The gold standard of the AFC.

that, or they're obnoxious dillholes.

Did you even read this thread? It started with some insane post about Brady being benched with 2 minutes left to go and how he's washed up. All things considered, all injuries considered, he's having a great year. That's worth noting on a thread predicated on Brady's demise.

The thing you're missing (because you're a troll with a poor understanding of board dynamics) is that the End of Brady talk is mostly just sarcasm in reference to everyone's various PFM/Broz overreactions.

I'm trying to remember if Tom Brady has even finished a game against KC.

He got benched in the 4th in 2005 with a 42 rating
Pollard hurt him in 2008
Brady got benched in the third in 2014 with a 59 rating

I found one. They beat us in 2011 and Brady finished the game.

The premise of this thread and what it is insinuating is stupid.

The more nauseating thing for me is how if you were to listen to the national media, they would convince the casual fan that the Pats are the most injured team in the NFL right now.

Have the Pats had big injuries to key players? Yes. Have other teams? Yes. The injury excuse card gets my panties in a bunch, even though as a fan, I can't help but use it as well sometimes.

Hopefully both teams are healthy come a potential playoff game.

Baltimore is the most injured team in the NFL when you look at the IR. Those guys got shredded over and over again. I believe Pats are the third most injured team, and when you look at starters in key offensive and defensive positions, are probably second to the Ravens. Pats can't get healthy as far as starters go, not with an IR full of starters. But, those that were on injury reports can get healthy.

The injury excuse card is played by a lot of people on this forum, and not consistently I might add. Fans use it to justify why they lost to a particular team, but when they beat up an severely depleted team, they give no credence to that being a reason they beat them. Can't have it both ways.

Just checked...Baltimore has 22 players on IR, Pats have 17, Washington has 15...

One positive to all those injuries...it gives you a chance to see how good your backups are!

Just because you're a hater doesn't mean you shouldn't check facts:

Nate Solder - Starting LT IR
Ryan Wendell, Team Captain, Starting C/Guard IR
Sebastian Vollmer, Starting T Injured

3 of their best OL starters injured, 2 of them for their year


1. Wendell isn't your starting Center dipsh*t, Stork is and has been since last year.
2. All your interior OL SUCK and that's why they've been rotated all year.
3. Vollmer missed 2 games (big whoop) and is back for the playoffs.

You have ONE starter out (Solder), who went out three months ago. Get over it you whiny douchebag. Saying "most of the OL starters are out" is a lie. NE's OL is horrid and they have been ever since Dante Scarnecchia retired. No amount of crying it's going to change that.

Nobody here cares about you, your cheating team, or it's crappy players. This is a Denver Broncos board.

And to think they won the Super Bowl without Dante. Last years O-Line jelled at the end of the season under coach Goog because of the quick pass. Why do they look like crap the last 4-5 games but looked like heros at the start of the year? Quick passes. Hopefully with a healthy Edelman, Amendola & Gronk we get back on track, like we did last year.

BTW…..
Stork was supposed to be the starting C at the beginning of the year, but never started due to injury. He then started G-RT against Washington when reactivated.
