Default Pats / Jags

Wow, is it me or did the Pats do terrible against the Jags? I see the media letting this one go unnoticed because they are so in love with the Pats. But the Jags are terrible, and it should have been a blowout, and Terrible Tom threw a couple picks.

Sounds like the best team ever to me.

I posted a pretty cool thread about this game until Requiem spoiled it. Don't worry though I have secret ninja powers.

I only caught the highlights but it was more of an observation. On the other hand, we are blowing out the Browns.

That was not a poop joke.

They're a different team with Gronk.

They're much more mortal on the road, but this is still a team that can win anywhere.

This. I wonder if they regret giving that big contract to Hernandez instead of Welker now. Hernandez is good, but he's much more easily coverable when Gronk isn't there. Welker, on the other hand, is the model of consistency regardless of who else is out there.

Comparable to our KC game I guess.

Not really. The KC game was never particularly close. It wasn't a scoreboard blowout, but the defense shut the Chiefs down. The offense did enough to win.

The Jags moved the ball up and down the field. Henne has 348 yards passing (3 INT's tho). The Jags had 3rd and Goal at the 1 yard line before really late in the game with a chance to tie. Their ineptitude (false start/sack) screwed that up.

Point being, that game was in doubt until the end.

I am hoping that the 49ers cracked the Pats and right now they are all flustered watching their seeding in the playoffs getting worse.

That is alarming? How is that alarming? He had Leftwich and Garrad at QB.

Denver wins or loses it will have nothing to do with Jacksonville/NE games.

This might be the best defense Del Rio has had in any game he's had against Brady. The other side of the ball as mentioned in another post is no small upgrade either.

Not scared of Houston. I still looking over my Shoulder towards the Pats cause none of are Linebackers can cover, but looking over that New England game in the beginning of the year i like how we adjust in the 2nd half.

I'll disagree with you there. Woodyard and Trevathan have been good in coverage. Its Brooking and Williams that have given up plays and been spotty. Heck Williams has always "been there", looking at any game in his career, but never makes a play on the ball. Miller is getting better. And most of the time when a TE gets a reception on our D, I see #20 Adams-or nobody around for that matter!

I think you are correct we seem to have some guys that can cover and defense some passes.. with the best two being DT and Wood.. can we get better absolutely but folks most of these guys have been on the field less than 5 years..

The coverage ability of the ILBs and Safeties is the key to stopping the Patriots, also having a great interior pass rush. The teams that we struggled with SF and Set have fast ILB and great safeties. I look at the Broncos as a team with most of it's Defensive talent on the outside; Doom, Miller and your CBs. It's not a good match up for Den, of course our pass D sucks so Peyton should light us up, but then if Peyton played in the playoffs like he did in the regular season he have 6 rings by now.

Hopefully they play each other and the best player rivalry in the NFL will continue.

Absolutely. Of the three we lost, we just got too far behind in the first half. Our second halves were decent, and we almost came back in all three. None of them were out of our reach.

Playing the Pats again I think will be a very different game, especially considering how we compare from the beginning of the year to now.

Brady had a rough day, Babin was in his grill all day. Babin also dropped into coverage poorly and gave up the TD that was the difference in the game.

Yeah, I'm glad they are missing one of their biggest pieces. Hopefully, he re-injures that arm fist pumping like the douche that he is.
