patriots getting ahead of themselves

If anything, that's the exact opposite of what the Pats do.  You rarely see the Pats make gestures like this or go out an do trash talking in the media.  This is just some fan or a few fans who had some extra bucks and decided to have a little fun

I agree 100% 21isSuperman. The Patriots never say any derogatory about a team or player publicly. Typically, they praise Flacco. Sing sweet complements of him all over the airways. Pour metaphoric perfume all over him in the locker room media sessions,  & then confuse, sack, & demolish his psyche & body all over Gillette Field in Foxboro. Like a beautiful who turns on her feminine charms of seduction you then & then takes you back to private room to throw you around in a bloodthirsty MMA cage match. Kill their adversary with kindness & then pulverize them. It's their stellar football business model & it actually works well for them.

 

Regarding Ray Lewis, I agree his years of superior play as a LB in the NFL deserve a more esteemed level of appreciation that than sign makes a mockery of. Robert Kraft & Bill Belichick had nothing to do with this short sighted act of stupidity. I can promise you that.

I never understand why a business slams a HOF NFL player with a giant countdown sign anyway just to generate business. It's counterproductive, foolish, & can easily backfire. Teams may need additional motivation to put their warrior paint on during game day once in awhile, but blatant disrespect for 1 of the best LB's this league has ever produced is not a wise move. Ever! Again NE as a franchise played no part in this disrespectful sign in my view. I blame the private citizen or corporation that paid for the sign not the NE organization. The vast majority of Foxboro fans admire Ray Lewis as a competitor too who never quits as well.

Just so everyone is aware, Clear Channel is a national media company that happens to have an office in Boston. I don't believe any fans paid for the billboard, or raised money for it, and the Patriots certainly would not participate in something like that. Ever.

 

So this is one national business responsible for it... not even just a Boston-based thing. Which struck me as odd. Don't they also have billboards down in Maryland?

 

They obviously did it for the publicity. Success there.

 

But they in no way "speak" for the team, Patriots fans, etc. This is just like the Dan Shaughnessy article about the Texans last week. No like-y.

I don't know, I think the Broncos got ahead of themselves more than anybody. The Seahawks second, all you ever heard about was how both of them were going to the Super Bowl.

Right, even Manning admitted they were "planning to play next week" in the postgame news conference. So not his style.

    • They just want to pass the hot potato to us so we go the playoffs and face New England instead since they got Foxboro'ed out this year already. Sigh.   Just kidding.   Honestly this is terrible news. Love watching this guy play but he has not looked "all there" this year so far either. I still won't count Houston out though since they still might play very hard this year and it could still be a strong divisional battle.   It's important that they let him fully heal though for his future too.     Some say he should not have played.......but star players play banged up a lot. I am sure Luck was out there banged up last year a few times early in the year too. I think Houston probably trusted the trainers/doctors and how JJ himself said he felt and he felt okay to go perhaps. Before the NE game, I heard Watt was increasing his activity levels anyway in practice. Stuff, happens.......   Sucks so many stars are already hurt this year, but hey the Vikings have made do without a few and sometimes others step up in place.
    • I just don't think Luck trusts all his WR's yet.  I said this a couple of weeks ago to my buddy that he is waiting for the WR to come out of his break before throwing, which takes longer and leads to more problems.  I think he has decent chemistry with T.Y. but it's nowhere near the level that Manning had with Harrison and Wayne yet.  Takes time to build.  I also think in some of the situations where Luck makes the "boneheaded INT" throw he is trying to anticipate the pattern and it goes awry, which leads him to want to wait for the WR to break going forward.  I think it just may take a LOT more practice time and some years with these guys to gain that trust to know when they will break so he can release it sooner and not have something bad happen.   This is year 5 for Luck and T.Y. but not for everyone else.
    • Lol.. He said "circus", but I can definitely see where you could hear the other thing. 
    • I think we could win 5 by the mid-break.  BUT until we do he aint right and he aint wrong.  Just unproven.  He's still a fargin icehole though.
    • Ill try to answer your questions the best I can based on what I see and my opinion. Keep in mind its in my opinion though so take it for what it is worth.   He trusts both his arm and his legs . It has nothing to do with his physical ability that he doesn't trust. Its all mental ability to have a clock in his head the second he hits his drop back spot 3-5-7 steps. I believe he should be able to scan through his first 2 reads in under 2.5 seconds. By the time you get to that 3rd read I think your pretty well going to be under pressure unless you have an elite O Line pass blocking wise or you have your QB out on the move   I think Chud can help him out more by giving him some throws that are easy for him to make early on the games. Particularly short throws to get him settled in. Sometimes guys are not getting separation though and I don't really think Lucks strength is to throw guys open right now much. I think he is still working on learning to throw guys open which really involves throwing the ball to an area and trusting the receiver will be there. Instead I think he waits for the receiver to run his route and if the receiver is not open at the break point then he hesitates instead of throwing it to an area and having the WR go get it.   Also from the looks of it he doesn't get hardly any plays called that allow for him to throw on the run. No QB Roll Outs really at all. He needs more help from Chud
