Sometimes you press when your D gives up 1000 points.

What happened to the No Huddle? Did we throw it out after last week? This game better prove to Grigs that this OLine is horrible and we need new faces on the whole thing.

Need a new offensive system. Luck has a lot to do with the team record. Not Luck the QB, but actual luck.

I am already thinking about Buffalo.......

We will take it all out on them at home. Home sweet home......

And look on the plus side, Detroit is really shaky too this year. They might have had their last stand today vs. GB.

They couldn't even beat a Packers team today missing Clay Matthews and Woodson.

We might have issues but that game is much more winnable then todays in NE. Maybe we have Vontae back too which will be huge.

Our O line is mediocre. We've got to improve in order for Luck to have enough time to throw and give the RBs some running lanes. Fix that and Luck will be able to make better decisions with the ball.

Need a new offensive system. Luck has a lot to do with the team record. Not Luck the QB, but actual luck.


Arians is an aggressive play caller in the passing game. It has worked for the majority of our games, but he obviously did little to adjust to the Patriots D. I hope this game has opened his eyes to the fact that throwing deep over the middle is not going to work if you do the same thing over and over against an elite team. We need more balance to the offense. I'm willing to give Arians a couple of seasons to see what he can do with Luck and the offense as they progress, but he needs to grow and develop with them.

If your expectation of him is to score 60 points yes. He is directly responsible for 14 Patriots scores.

Can't really say the D takes less heat than Andrew for allowing the 45 other points scored.

He did not play great today though no doubt about that.
In another moment, down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

For a rookie he played like a rookie. I think what was more surprising was the defense. No pressure whatsoever. Both our starting guards were out. Lots of poor tackling as well, a lot of extra yards after contact. Think back to the Manning days and how Brady never lit it up that much because Mathis and Freeney would constantly be in his face. That was with a better Pats O line too. I expected Brady to be pressured much more but I was surprised. Freeney is laughing all the way to the bank ($$$)

Yeah! How dare a rookie QB who's been playing top caliber against mediocre teams do so poorly against a championship caliber team.

Really, though, what were you really expecting??

awww, did i hurt you feelings? feel free to find one post by me where i espouse the greatness of luck. saying people are unwilling to criticize luck is just wrong....u forget about all the lack or arm strength comments or the advice given to his mechanics at the beginning of the season? i think most people realize he is a rookie who will make dumb mistakes time to time...so pointing it out is just a waste of time. not to mention the fact the the defense and special teams also played like turd.

Freeney isn't what he used to be and could still be recovering from the ankle injury. I still saw a few good pressures by him and he did get 2 flags thrown his direction. I didn't think he had a terrible game. I just think we're still not getting any push up the middle.

I am not, everyone knows I am not. I will call it like I see it. Luck has been turning the ball over way too much for my liking. Arians' play calling is a big part of it too, IMO. Cant always call the deep yardage pass, dumpoffs and screen passes to RBs etc. should be included in the arsenal too. Those long yardage passes take time to form and if the coverage is good, one of 3 things will happen - a sack (which is OK, IMO), a strip fumble or a bad throw into tight coverage. The latter two happened more often, IMO.

He was a big part of the loss but do you honestly think we win even if he doesnt throw a single INT?

Its expected considering the situations were putting this kid into. This is what, the 4th or 5th game already, into his rookie season, that he's thrown 40+ times? I think there has maybe been 2-3 games combined this year where a rookie QB has thrown that much. The other thing is alot of those attempts arent screens or dump offs like you mentioned. They are long developing plays with 4-5 reads.

We need to reduce his load slightly. I like that Luck is capable of handling alot of responsibility already but this is too much IMO.

Absolutely agree that you cannot make a rookie throw like that with so many long developing plays. Yes, Luck has a short term memory and will brush it off and will be fine in the long term. But Arians is doing the offense and the team a disservice by calling too many of those plays, IMO. I hope he leans to 30 plus runs vs the lowest ranked rush D in the league, the Bills. If not, I will have an issue with his play calling.

It's actually the sixth game of 40+ and his average per game this season is something like 42 attempts. I've said it several times before and I'll say it again... Arians is doing you guys a massive disservice.

Add to that the number of hits Luck takes week in and week out... even a guy with his frame, size, there are limits. He took a few more shots to the head today. I am not sure how exactly to read the NFL QB Hits stats (http://www.nfl.com/s...s=PASSING_QBHIT), because I've heard much larger numbers for Vick, for example, but according to the NFL, Luck has been hit the third most this season, and that doesn't include today.

That's something I've noticed more and more as the season has gone on. As much of a fuss has been made about our guy taking unnecessary hits, Luck has had it just as bad and has really taken a lot of the same kinds of hits despite being less of a scrambler.

Both of you are delusional. Luck made plenty of bad throws and plays. Was the loss on his shoulders? He'll no! We were up and doing good. That punt return started it off. Then luck started pressing, and their d was all over Luck. Our defense couldn't stop a thing. So lets get real here.

Luck put the loss on himself and took full responsibility. I think that trumps what any of us think in terms of criticizing or not criticizing him for the loss.

Taking responsibility is a great value I like in this young rookie.

Fortunately he doesn't bring baggage like cough "Cam Newton."

Vontae Davis is what happens when an unstoppable force meets and immovable object, then they have a kid!
