PERSONALLY.....IF I WERE CHUCK PAGANO AND IF IN THE LAST 2 GAMES AGAINST NEW ENGLAND.....I HAD 2 DIFFERENT RUNNING BACKS SCORE 4 TD'S EACH.....YOU CAN BET THAT THE NEXT TIME I COACHED AGAINST NEW ENGLAND I WOULD MAKE IT MY BUSINESS TO ALLOW NO MORE RUSHING TOUCHDOWNS.....SEEMS AS THOUGH BRADY THROWING THE BALL WOULD HAVE DONE LESS DAMAGE.....HIS ARM DOES NOT SEEM AS STRONG AS IT ONCE WAS AND WE PICKED HIM TWICE.....I LOVE CHUCK AS A PERSON BUT I AM BEGINNING TO QUESTION IF WE HAVE THE RIGHT GUY LEADING THIS TEAM.....THIS WAS A HUGE GAME AS FAR AS HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE WAS CONCERNED AND SOONER OR LATER YOU CAN'T SIDESTEP THE ISSUE ANYMORE AND YOU JUST HAVE TO BEAT A TEAM LIKE THIS. WE ARE SPENDING SOME RIGHTEOUS CASH ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE OF THE FOOTBALL TO BE GETTING THESE RESULTS. I DO NOT PROFESS TO BE A GREAT FOOTBALL MIND BUT IF I WERE COACHING AGAINST BELLICHECK I WOULD START WITH A PARTICULAR GAME PLAN AND EVEN IF IT WAS WORKING WELL ( REMEMBER AT HALFTIME THE SCORE WAS ONLY 14 - 10 ) WHEN WE TOOK THE FIELD IN THE SECOND HALF I WOULD SWITCH UP AND DO THINGS ALTOGETHER DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE BELLICHEK WILL ADJUST TO WHAT YOU ARE DOING AT HALFTIME AND YOU JUST CAN'T KEEP DOING THINGS THE SAME.....JUST SAYIN.....IF CHUCK AND GRIGS CAN'T DO A LITTLE BETTER ( LOT BETTER ).....HERE ARE TWO NAMES SHANAHAN ( HE'S LOOKING ) AND BILLICK.....3 SUPER BOWLS BETWEEN THEM ANDGOOD DEFENSIVE MINDS.....LIKE I SAID I LOVE CHUCK AND GRIGS TOO BUT YOU JUST CAN'T WASTE A TALENT LIKE LUCK THEY MUST DO BETTER

Hate to agree with you, but WORD! I'vehave said same in the past and got blasted hear! Sunday night was brutal and hard to watch. Coach is a good man, but we will never win a SB with him or Grich at the helm! Patriots own them!

Here's the Deal from my perspective. This game is indicative of one thing that remains constant in Colts/Patriots matchups. Its belief. The Patriots just believe that they will work harder, hit harder, outplay the Colts every time they play. Even in the Colts victories, they usually come very hard fought, and very SELDOM do the Colts just kick the Patriots butt like the Patriots always seem to do to the Colts. Its mental now. No matter who lines up against the Colts, they turn into world beaters and look like Walter Peyton against this team because of a belief system that Bill B. instills in his team. There is NO way that this team should systematically destroy ANY Colts team, no matter who's playing every year unless its mental.

 

The Colts hope they'll beat the Patriots, while the Patriots BELIEVE they will always beat the Colts. And that's on the coaching staff. Every time I see this going on, I realize that Bruce Arians is the ONLY coach that the Colts have had in recent years that can change their BELIEF system. Chuck P is a nice guy and all, but he has NO clue about motivation outside of the usual cliches. Hes trying his best and I wish him well, but he has failed miserably to motivate this team properly to perform at the level of greatness required to change the mindset of this team, The same teams that have owned us in the past STILL own us. Steelers, Patriots, etc. And these are the teams we have to go through. Trust me, the Steelers will be there at the end. And we aren't even competitive with these teams on the road and against the Patriots, at home either. 

 

So, if the team can understand that they don't have to fire any body or do anything drastic, this wasn't about preparation or the lack thereof. They have to understand the power of the mind to do great things. Because that's the only solution to this beat-down the Patriots consistently give the Colts. The mental determines the physical.  The coaches cant go in saying that they think the Monsters being built, they have to KNOW the Monster is already there waiting to be unleashed EVERY Sunday.  Just like Morpheus said to Neo in the Matrix....you cant think you are the best, you have to KNOW you are...believe. The Colts have got to let go of fear, doubt and disbelief. Only great coaching can do that and unfortunately, the guy that can do that, in my opinion, is now in Arizona.
