Baltimore (+7) @ New England (1-10-15)

Recommended Posts

I think the reason why the Pats started off very slow....maybe the 1st round bye had them rusty.  But on defense they were just out played and caught off guard by the explosiveness of the Ravens' offense.  Ravens were on fire.  It sort of reminded me of the 1st quarter of the Packers/Pats game where Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson were picking apart the Pats' D.  The Pats' D were not ready emotionally and physically out the gate.  The Pats had to give up on the run game in the 1st quarter and just throw the ball from there on out.

 

Both teams' defenses didn't play well.  It was a sloppy game defensively but those lucky big plays saved them.  Not many excuses as for why both teams put up 30+ points each in artic freeze 18 degree weather.

 

I heard on the NFL Network after the game that this is a victory coaches love for prep.  Now Belichick can really make the Pats practice hard during the week to focus on improving their mistakes.

there was no need to go deep with a time out left..Joe got fooled...he misread that coverage

Fred Smerles said because NE knows 7 yds will get a 1st down so what do you think they are doing? Only play open was deep. Reason for some plays not always what it appears to us.

I thought- well you often feel a team out 1st drive and somewhat vanilla keeping things in front of you. Problem was Ravens dumped chocolate all over it. They we just short perfect execution plays down the field. Then NE defense we knew would tighten up. Alas in the end it was a runaway train lol

I'm not sure I've ever actually seen a game like that. Down by 2 TD's and then tying it .....TWICE. 

 

WOW. 

 

People hate NE. We hate them. We hate your team. That's respect in the realm of pro sport, as perverted as that may seem.

I think that actually might be the first time. Unreal.

I get the perverted respect ;)

Then run the ball..

...you had 1;40 or 1:50 left

You don't have to throw into double coverage...unless its the last play of the game..

Its wasnt 3rd down and they had a time out..They had plenty of time.

It was simply a mistake by Joe Flacco

was it 2nd and 7?  That's generally a passing down.

I believe it was 2nd and 5. Happened right after that offsides penalty I think.

And can we stop hearing about how Baltimore has New England's number?

That ship sailed a couple of years ago...

I never thought they had our number per se. A bad match up maybe yeah.

If it was 5 then yeah you can run- or better yet its 50-50 to run or pass. I'm just saying sometimes the deep is more open than the short when you only need a short completion thus not necessarily a dumb call as we all often think in those situaltions

Harbaugh is crying foul on the gimmick formations the pats used . I can say it was genious and deceptive but I will guess it will be outlawed before the next round or all the teams will using it . Another genious wrinkle coming from Bill exposing odd loop holes in the rules . The pats really went deep in there bag of tricks and it played off .

If it's not illegal and not clearly stated in the rule book then it's not cheating.

Would you stop trying to be an internet tough guy to a woman please? Like seriously, you are coming across as a misogynistic thirteen words a minute buffoon.

Ah, so you apparently believe that half of the population shouldn't back up ridiculous claims?

Sad that you think that they shouldn't have to.

This thread is getting out of hand. 

 

It's under review as of now. It might be re-opened later. 

 

Locked.

    • With AD, LeBron and keeping Kuzma it is a good start. I have to see what they put around that. Kuzma is a good player. Ingram has health problems and without Ball the Lakers have no outside nonsense with daddy Ball. He was an outside soap opera distraction. Lakers still need shooting and a PG, so we will see.  
    • - Again, you're still in the minute few (and LA fans) that believe those players were equal to AD. I commend Demps for not bending to LA/Lebrons nonsense. NO literally got 1 mid-level starter, and 2 average bench players for a top-5 player. Sorry, but you're lying to yourself if you think NO benefited any from this trade. However, yes, you were right about the trade.    - What good is Kuzma when he's watching Zion eat up his minutes? There is at least some flexibility with the #4 pick that could be traded for another veteran. They could use an upgrade at SG.   - With the way LA is being built, I'd be surprised if they even make it past the Conference Finals, let alone make it to the Finals. 
    • Even though I am excited about the young WRs and even though I didn't like Grigs...I am going to have to defend him here a bit.   With Grigs there is 5 seasons of data points...Ballard only has two (because we haven't yet see how this one plays out from the WR standpoint)...so there are going to be more of these on-year WR "misses." I don't expect Ballard will continue to sign these stopgap WR types...but like Grigs...he was definitely not immune to paying money to crappy WRs.   So I don't think it's totally fair to discredit Grigs for having a "problem" with one-year WR busts...and then toss out the two that Ballard has had in his first seasons. It's been an issue for a long time.   Also...if we judge Ballard on the whole picture...we should Grigs as well. Grigs re-signed Reggie...when many thought they should move on. He signed Avery...the last good one-year WR deal (until this year hopefully). He drafted Hilton. He drafted Moncrief...who people were just as high on as they are Campbell or Cain. He brought in Chester Rogers. He made some pretty great moves...and some pretty bad ones as well.   And while we can be confident about Ballard...when it comes to WR...it's still  wait and see.     
    • Dickerson all-time is a top 5 RB ever. I have:   Jim Brown Emmitt Smith Walter Payton Barry Sanders Eric is #5.  I would take Tony Dorsett over Faulk. 1995 turned me off from Faulk. We would've won the SB had he played in 95 and he quit - BOOO. 
    • I am not a huge LeBron fan but LA is in great shape with AD and plenty of cap space. We will know more once Free Agency is over. I told you LA would get AD, I knew I would be right on that one. I thought Kuzma would be a part of it though. LA even kept Kuzma lol. When Magic offered the deal Kuzma was a part of it but Demps was dumb and didn't do the trade. Kuzma is by far better than any 4th pick they will get. There are only 3 sure picks = Zion, Ja, and RJ.
