Patriots MNF Victory thread

106 posts in this topic

Already calling it. Texans are overrated and have been torched by some of the top passers (Stafford, Rodgers, Manning). Add in the injured secondary and this is going to be an easy victory. Regardless I still think it'll be Houston + New England in the AFCCG.

Hey it works on this forum lately. Some guy posted a Colts over Lions victory thread before the game.

So the game has been decided before it has been played. Make no mistake, whether Patriots win or not, there will be nothing easy about it. Believe me when I say that.

Yeah and if NE loses then this thread will be bumped up a lot by you and Vance. ;)

I hope the Texans lose, would like them to get embarassed but I don't think it's likely. I'll take the W either way!

Oh he has been around a bit lately after I dragged him back from his break. He can't get enough of the ladies of Colts.com.

Hmmm...What's gonna win out psychologically speaking...My Alma Mater loyalty to UW-Madison Alumni DE JJ Watt or my fascination with watching DT Vince Wilfork crush pockets almost nonstop up the middle?

My heart says Texans; My head says Patriots. Just a second...I'm flipping a coin...Heads...Just what I thought. I roll with the Texans on this one..

I'm not nearly as confident as my Patriots brethren... the Patriots haven't shown me that they can slow down an opponent's passing game enough for me to think this will be anything but a close, hard-fought game. I do think New England wins it, primarily because it's at home and it's going to be sloppy tonight (wet, cold rain). Those weather conditions generally favor the Patriots regardless of who they're playing. But I think it'll be close and come down to the last few possessions.

So if Texans lose, Colts control their own destiny. Who would've thought a division title could've been a possibility.... Still feels weird pulling for the Pats, though....http://vimeo.com/55285595

IMO this isnt a cake walk,if the texans put pressure on King Tom and bang him around a little he loses composure and makes mistakes,not to mention i dont see the Patriots as defensive sensations,so lets all just sit back pop a top :thmup: and see how this all plays out

The Texans are not overated in my view of the horizon,the key is pass rush,they mount a good one they are home free

I thank you for your honesty,and it shows me,you not only watch the game but understand it as well.Sounds as if you are one who also watches game within the game

With the Colts three games back, a tie would pretty much lock up the division for Houston. To take the AFC South, you'd need them to lose to NE (assuming they will beat Minnesota), and then beat them twice. So unless you're happy with the wildcard, you have to join us on the dark side, just for tonight. ;)

Southwest, do you live in Washington or Colorado by any chance?

I live in Wisconsin Snowglobe, but I do have 2 cousins that live in Colorado. This is gonna be a great game tonight. An automatic shoe in for NFL Replay this Tuesday or Wednesday night on NFL Network. By the way JJ, thank for recommending the "Education Of A Coach" to me. A great read. :thmup:

Take the home team. It'll be cold. Texas isn't cold.

I'll make my useless prediction here. NE+10

It might not be easy, but Tom Brady is probably chomping at the bit to start tossing the ball around.

This is a gut call btw. The team with the Cow or Bull on the side of their helmet could very well show up big, and then I would be wrong!

I agree Jay that pass rush is indeed crucial...However...

What mesmerizes me about this game is an almost equally potent ground game on both teams. It boils down to which team's running backs have the best overall endurance by the middle of the 4th quarter IMO.

Off to write my book review of Bill Belichick now..."The Education Of A Coach." The more I learn about Bill; the more I profoundly respect this man...

I'm not a speed demon typist BTW...Please be patient...Trust me, it will be worth the wait...

I am very concerned about this game. I agree with GoPats; our secondary just isn't that good, although it's definitely on the upswing right now.

Perhaps Talib will do a good enough job on Andre to limit his damage. I'm not as worried about Foster, although he is very good.

Offensively I'm not worried. The Patriots should (key word) shred that secondary.

It'll be a close game going into the 4th quarter. I do expect the Patriots to win, but would I be surprised by a Texan win? No, not at all.

That's why I respect VL, GoPats, Yehoodi, Snowglobe, & Flying Elvis on here...No blind favoritism here, but balanced objectivity.

Really nervous about this game, its two AFC Juggernauts battling.. The Ravens just lost, so this game is extremely important to the Patriots in order to keep a 1 game lead on them, since they own the tie breaker and would have homefield advantage.. I do NOT want to have to go on the road to Baltimore in the playoffs.

Good evening southwest. I stayed away from this thread because victory is far from certain. The team that executes better and limits mistakes will win.

I'm so pumped up for this game. In order to be the best you have to beat the best. Right now, that's the 11-1 Texans. I'm just glad this one's at Foxboro.

I'm still in the process of pouring through that one.

My favorite part of it so far was when his mother found some old notebooks in the attic and with her being a french teacher she found his french notebook from high/boarding school and she was wanting to look at him breaking down verbs and eveything but it was littered with x's and o's. I thought that was funny and was guilty of that myself.

You're quite welcome. I thought you might enjoy it. I like the part about stopping Marshall Faulk.

Sorry, JJ sWatt is coming down hard. I really like this guy. Possibly might be taking over my favorite non-Colt from Ray Lewis.

Hate the Pats and Texans, sorry fellow comPatriots, but I dislike the Pats more.

Im with you on the ground game,they both have a passing attack as well,although they are very different,IMO i think it comes down to the Defense in this one and gotta give the nod to the Texans,given its being played in NE this probably makes for a very good game that could go either way.In all honesty it will be entertaining at the least.And hope the Officiating is not a factor,because what ive seen latley is just disgusting considering they should be the best in the profesion

    • I disagree. Erik Walden is weak at the POA, can get washed by TEs, and doesnt set an edge very well at all. He does things at an average NFL level, he does nothing at a high level. Plenty of teams have difference makers at Sam OLB....Ingram, Perry, Houston, extc. No they're not easy to find, but settling for a 32 year old and not even trying to upgrade is not the answer. I dont blame any local media they got over there in Indy for calling him that. Call it like you see it. The fact that he was our best edge rush last year is pretty disturbing, and if we go into next season the same way  we'll have a total under 20 sacks again. I hate that excuse of what else are we ganna do? Who else could play better? How does any other team upgrade any position, through draft and FA. Its time, the re build has started and if Erik doesn't take a compromisable contract let him walk. No more then 5 mil/yr
