Good god, Brady still getting 340 million years to throw the ball. He can just take the snap and just stand there like a statue and never have to fear of being pressured.

This guy can train siberian tigers, learn a new foreign language, and take a cooking class while waiting for someone to get open.

I love coming in every year and hearing you whine about Brady, his protection, and the refs in an effort to discredit him.

Good game so far, but far from over.

98% of his snaps he can just stand there and freeze and look over the field, and then a little shift from him can buy him like 10 extra seconds.

And for the love of god Chargers, quit choking in the red zone...

And you've complained about it for the past 2 seasons week in and week out. You'd think maybe you'd get tired of it. Or perhaps balance out all the undue criticism of Brady with some fair analysis, but whatever.

Only allowed 3 posts per day and this is my last, but I'll stick around for this week's analysis about how the other team's QB outplayed Brady and the Patriots were fortunate to get a win. lol

Where's our old buddy Bob Sanders? Did he even play?

Patriots whooped 'em something fierce, nothing new.

NFL circle of ownage strikes again. The game was called just fine as far as I can tell. If anything the Pats had a few nonsense penalties against them.

Patriots beat Chargers

Chargers beat Colts

Colts beat Broncos

Broncos beat Patriots

Homer aside that might be the best football game I've ever seen. To jump in and out of thato huddle at will was devasting.

Oh and the defense played good if anyone questions that. If you're Rivers are you going to want coming into the game completing 15 passes to your RBs (checkdowns) zero to Gates and except Jackson , catches to the WRs...if I'm NE I take that in this game anyday. Clearly a keep it in front of them game plan.

and oh 4 turnovers.

I was stunned at the offense's incredible execution/play calling/dynamics

Brady was remarkable and I don't mean that as a pats fan.

I disagree. I didn't find the Patriots' defense to be very good whatsoever.

Here's the thing:

3rd down defense killed the Patriots last year. The Chargers were, last I checked during the game, 11 out of 12 for converting 3rd downs.

Yes, turnovers were great, but the INTs were on Rivers. Brown's was solid, but the 1st wasn't.

The defense concerns me, because I don't find it a big improvement from last year. Our LBs can't cover right now; the RB should have been covered by a LB, and it rarely ever happened.

The D is a work in progress, but at this point, it's the big concern to me.

The defense is better than last year and this is the 2nd game. Chargers are elite top team and some argue Rivers right now the 2nd best QB.

Again they forced dump offs to the RBs. Keep it in front of them and wait for mistakes. Also if one looked close the D did make Rivers aware with a 4 man rush, hence the dumps. There was pressure despite lack of sacks.

yeah they got 3rd downs but where did it go from there? 10 drives and 7 netted 7 points. goal line stand? are you kidding me:)

I don't know how you stop that tall WR that snatched catches...they had coverage..3 men sometimes.

Other teams don't have that asset.

It's not great and the O will have to score but.......

oh and look at the depth..rotations.

Question was this team tough enough to outlast opponents at the end. So far yes. A patriot trademark.

My Chargers will be an "elite" team when we stop giving up the ball and shooting ourselves in the foot. NE played flawless and we gave them the ball 4 times. Can't win a game like that. Some games you "beat yourselves" and sometimes the other team makes you beat yourself - this game was the later. NE deserved this game though we could have and should have won it.

Rivers was really off today - the pressure was part of it, but he just wasn't himself also. Pretty rare when you're used to watching him play.

Thought Brady's knee was going to be a goner on that one play, that was one lucky escape for him. He had all the time in the world and when he didn't and we almost nailed him he made it work. Hats off to the better team on this day.

You are smart for seeing the bolded part.

I think SD will be fine. Prolly see you in the playoffs. You came into the home opener of what appears to be an incredible NE offense. That quick switch to no huddle really hurts.

However that RB back going backwards is a no no in the NFL and I can see why Norv was ticked.

Rivers can sling it..make no mistake about it. He still made some nice throws today.

    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
