I want an excuse for the loss bit really there isn't one. We played a mediocre game against a highly motivated team that got hot at the perfect time
The main reason we lost is due to refs..there are many other factors(conservative play calling, Rahim Moore etc).
Officiating was bad last week..
I never understand how NFL named Bill Vinovich as a referee in divisional playoff games. He didn't officiate since 2006 and returned the field this year.
It's like he returned this year just to screw broncos..

Brady always been a pússy, can't perform when rushed or pressured on consistent basis, always needs a clean pocket (like any average QB) which makes him look all world, e.g. SB XLVI & XLII proved his faux clutchness. Having said that, this and IIRC a couple other scrables showed his true püssyfucation today.

Brady would be an average QB after all these years if he had an average O line, that and NE D saved his áss in SB XXXVI, and Adam Vinateri in the others.

We don't know what would have happened if we played the Pats. If you all don't know by now, it's like Fox said, each of these games has it's own identity and the outcome can be so very different each game. It just depends on how many of your players had a good game or if they made big mistakes. When you get to the top 4 to 6 teams playing in the playoffs, that's what it comes down to. A few bounces go your way, a few calls your way, a few big plays your way and the next thing you know you're moving on and somebody else is going home.

I was pulling for the Falcons. Would have liked to seen Gonzales get his ring.

I don't care who wins it to be honest, if we're out, it makes no difference to me. Just another year we came close but leaving the dance without the prom queen.

I don't see how any Bronco fan could have been rooting for Baltimore over New England in this one. For starters, Baltimore did not derserve to be there, but were handed victory last week by the refs. Continued Baltimore success spits in the face of justice. Additionally, Tom Brady and Bill Belicheck may be a-holes, but they were never involved in murdering anybody. The media is acting like Ray Lewis is Ghandi, and it's sickening. I'll be a 49er fan for one day.

This. I wanted both teams to lose, but if I had to choose one - seeing the Pats lose is good. Plus (I can't really believe I'm going to say it...) go 9ers.

Man the Ravens pounded them physically...the 'Pats were tenderized yesterday.

Great way to defend the dink and dunk, they catch it, you make 'em pay, notice later in the game, Vereen, Welker, were hearing footsteps?

I could easily see us doing the same thing next year, going on the road and getting it done..oh well...

Looking forward to watching this Super Bowl..

All that said, I feel a lot better now than I did last week. The team that beat us did so by 3pts. and needed a lot of help from the ***hole zebras. Despite that, we had the game won, and we can argue the conservative play calls, but it was breakdowns in the secondary that screwed us in the end(no pun intended),
IMO. That is fixable this offseason.

We got beat by the team that is going to the SB. Tonight's game confirms to me anyway, that we are close. Real close.
I'd be more inclined to agree if having a better shot next year was a halfway sure thing. There are just too many things that can go wrong in a year to feel OK about having pissed away such a golden opportunity. We're not getting any younger next year that's for sure. And other teams don't stand still. You just never know.

For the fifth time since 2007, the Patriots lost in the playoffs as the favorite, and at home or on a neutral field, they have scored 14, 14, 21, 17 and 13 points in those games despite fielding four of the 12 highest-scoring teams in NFL history. These games coming as rematches against teams they scored 38, 27, 14 and 45, 20 and 30 points on in the regular season

This really confirms Elway has the right idea. His first job was to stabilize the defense. This offense can use a tweaking but the defense needs to be stouter up the middle

I find it amusing the attention spent on hate and discontent of other teams.


Where I look at other teams with admiration that are successful, to study how they got that way, lots of folks rejoice in a game they lost.

While I was rooting for BAL in this game it was only follow the team that beat us..

Folks rejoice in NE loss and hope they fall off the face of the earth. They are a damned fine team and will only get better with the upcoming offseason.


So y'all can whine and cry about it all off season. Ahahahahahahaha

I guess I see it differently. Part of being a fan for me is rooting for the Broncos and then yes, rooting against other teams.

Football Outsiders also noticed that tender foot Brady needs a clean pocket to be a faux GOAT:



Quote:
Mike Kurtz: The Ravens also did a very good job getting pressure on Brady when he did try to go long, and he was feeling it. Near the end of the game (the play before the interception, I believe) you could see Brady throwing an intermediate route and trying to shield himself as he's throwing it against a defender that was clearly not going to get there. The best way to beat the Patriots has always been to unsettle Brady, and despite the rather unimpressive rush numbers on paper, the Ravens did a great job getting into his head.

Aaron Schatz: I don't think they really did until the end of the game, though. Certainly not in the first half, and not much in the third quarter either.

Danny Tuccitto: Saw a stat from ESPN last night that said Kaepernick led the league in lowest "inaccurate throw" percentage, which I confirmed in the charting for incompletions they gave us. I bring this up because, in answering the question, "How did the best offense in the NFL just score 13 points at home against a mediocre defense?" I can't help but focus on how many inaccurate throws Brady made tonight. I know there were several drops and batted balls, but I can't remember the last time I saw him miss so many open guys. Obviously, the game-ending interception was a glaring underthrow, but there were plenty of others that killed New England (IIRC, Shane Vereen would still be running if Brady didn't throw it behind him on a dumpoff with 11 minutes left).
This is why Elway, Favre, and even Manning should be ranked higher then Brady. Those don't have need a clean pocket to perform and carry their teams to victory. Brady is Drew Bledsoe 2.0

Patriots are not dead. Next pre-season, the AFC superbowl favorites will be either Denver or New England.

Here is what NE is going to do:

1. Let Welker walk. The Patriots don't keep their stars, outside of Brady and Wilfork.

2. Find a viable deep threat. They want what they had in Moss in 2007 - someone who can stretch defenses and open up the middle.

3. install as their base offensive formation a 3 TE set. This would be absolutely revolutionary - no one passes consistently out of a 13 formation, but that's what NE will do. Hernandez (62-250) gives them the versatility to do this, as he is stout enough to play FB if they want to load up in the back-field, and spry enough to line up as a WR. The TE's would be Gronkowski (6-6, 265) and Ballard (6-6, 256).

I don't see any way a conventional defense wouldn't have trouble with a line-up like that if the WR was a halfway reliable speedster. There will be a CB on one of their TE's, and with 2 TE's being 6-6, they will have a pretty severe height advantage and certainly a size advantage. The other two TE's will have to deal with LB's, Hernandez and Gronk are both mismatches for most LB's there as well. As much as their 2 TE set + welker stretches a defense, a 3TE set would be much worse and would improve their running game.

WR....the Achilles heel of the NE scouting department.
