You have to realize that just "making adjustments" wont win you games. When you are outmatched, out gunned and out efforted at nearly every position what in the world are you supposed to do? put 13 guys on the field? What's wrong with trusting the best kicker in the NFL from 51 yards? The hail mary was questionable but really. who cares. It's a hail mary.
Some questionable play calling with the FG attempt for Adam in the wind/rain. Just like Caldwell did to Adam in the playoffs at home from 50 plus and missed. Caldwell would have taken a knee too before the half as Chuck did to Luck instead of heaving one downfield. Like Caldwell, Chuck just cannot make any adjustments overall.
What is so very troubling is not getting beaten.....24-17.....27-21.....28-24.....i could live with that.....regular season the score at halftime was 14 to 10......today it was 17 to 7.....manageable situations.....its what happens after halftime and while i love chuck to death *.....chuck is simply getting outcoached.....legaroutte blount doesn't beat anyone else like he does us.....when he became a free agent at the start of the season new england let him go and had no interest in him until pitt. Cut him and bellichick got him at the price he wanted.....in other words he is just average.....but chuck has no clue how to stop him and if new england hadn't signed him the kid from notre dame who rushed for 201 yards and 4 tds would have done the honors instead.....it really didn't matter.....our coaches have no idea how to stop the patriot's running game.....i can't get excited anymore till we prove we can beat someone that matters.....last year when we were healthy and we beat seattle...sf 49ers....and denver i thought we were on the right track.....well not any more
