Which Season?

Just kind of looking for your guys opinions on this. Which season are you most disappointed with. The season we lost in the super bowl to The Saints when we could have easily won that game. or the season the colts are having this year, with a potential chance of being 0-16 or 1-15 maybe.

If you guys could choose which one you would want to fix or rather have again over the other, which would you take...I think i would fix the super bowl season just so we could we world champs again. I wouldnt really want to live this season over and over again but I dont mind having the first overall draft pick either so its a lose-win situation.

simply just imaginary, obviously but does that disgusted feeling creep in at the last 2 mins of a game every sunday this season like it did when you seen the Saints intercept the ball and go back for 6

I'm still not over flat out quitting in week 16 of 2009 when there were only two easily beatable opponents remaining.

The Super Bowl was a good game and the Saints simply made a few more plays and I wasn't that disappointed at all.

Someone wins and someone loses. That's just the way the game works.

This season is actually kind of satisfying in a strange way. It has validated so many things which I have said and for which I was called everything from an * to a Patriot fan (OK, maybe they are synonymous)

1) Polian is overrated and has built an empty team

2) The coaching staff is not qualified

3) The team would not win more than two games without Manning

4) This defense would not beat anyone because it is built all wrong

5) The offensive line is bad and has been protected by Manning for years

6) The Colt running game would not be good enough to win games even with a fullback

I'm hoping that 0-16 will be so humiliating that they finally wake up and correct some things for a change.

I agree with you about 2009....and its easy to say that the team wouldnt win more then 2 without Manning

....as we are also without Bracket and Bullitt and now Clark and etc...

I'd argue that a coaching staff that reaches the Super Bowl..and overcomes 15 IRs to make the playoffs is qualified.

..and the defense is basically the Chicago Bears 'D; and the Tampa 'D; that went to the Super bowl a decade ago..

so that's probably a hard arguement to sustain...

But O-line,,,running game....sure you're right.

    • how many games does derrick henry average 3 yards or  less in the first half then wears down the defense and get 150 in the second half .    if the titans had frank as a coach he would give up the run and have tannehill throw 50 times a game and lose every time .   stick with your bread and butter and stay balanced .
    • I heard a good analogy by jake query on the radio on why fans always blame Reich and not players. It’s because it’s easier for fans to see themselves as a coach then it is as a player with physical athletic traits. Everyone thinks they are a arm chair GM and coach and it’s so easy to do.
    • the turnovers were a direct result of not running the ball the stripped should of never happened .  up 10 in the redzone and frank is calling 7 step drops against a elite defensive line .   that is the game right there
    • It is also rhythm. If a D gets into the same rhythm, it makes the OL counter moves predictable and eventually it stops working without a variation.   I remember the highly vaunted offense of Peyton and the 2013 Broncos going into Foxboro, Belichick played Peyton like he played Jim Kelly and the Bills, he conceded the run and Knowshon Moreno ran for 225 yards, and in the process, Peyton and the passing offense, when they had to pass, did not have the rhythm to do so effectively and lost an OT game. So rhythm for blocking and rhythm for passing are all important, no matter how much of it is a case of going against the strength of the other team, just in the name of rhythm and keeping them honest.    A few other occasions - Kyle Shanahan and the Falcons go up 28-3 passing the ball but they had started out the game with sweep runs and toss sweeps with DeVonta Freeman. Without realizing how many plays their D was on the field for, they kept chucking it, leading to a missed blitz block by Freeman for a turnover, and then the infamous series, up 28-20, going back with a holding penalty and sack trying to pass while in FG range leading to the Patriots comeback. Then, Peyton vs Saints in the SB, down 17-24, 6 straight passes, 40 plus passes against a ball hawking team that had thrived on turnovers despite giving up tons of passing yards throughout the year, 3 plus minutes still on the clock to incorporate runs but no, we have to get greedy with the pass and the pick six happened and the rest is history. 2006 AFCCG, however, down 6-21, and down 13-21, we did not panic by passing too much, mixed in plenty of runs with passing, and that is how we tied the game and that is how we won the game too (Marvin insisted we run it on 3rd and 2 with Addai for game winning TD).    No matter what the strength of an opposing team, mixing in a few runs keeps the clock moving, keeps the rhythm if we need to run against tired legs down the stretch preserved, and our D's legs preserved too in a complementary game. How many years and games of football do fans have to see before we realize it?
