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.

    • They have a replacement in Okafor for Davis. Both him and Randle played well down the stretch while Davis was out. Randle is a guy I would potentially look at as well. With NO obviously going after Zion, Randle has already turned down his player option and is a FA. If Thad turns is no longer and option, I think Randle would be a good fill in at PF for the Pacers. 24 years old and averaged 21 and 9 playing off the bench half of the year last year.    It would be nice to unload McDermitt's contract and put that extra 7.5M/yr elsewhere.    As I said earlier in the thread, we have quite a few holes to fill on a capped budget and I wouldn't be surprised if some of these guys (Thad, Bogy, CJ) decline offers from the Pacers and move on. 
    • I think you will see another WR drafted....or a TE. Funchess will likely be gone...Hilton is a year older. Even if Cain and Campbell are both what they hoped for...there is still room to develop another Day Two pick at the position. We will see though.
    • Agree. It's just the logic that gets me. It's wishful thinking (or homerism) to think that Foles doesn't impvoe a Blake Bortles-led offense.   And had Luck not come back healthy...I would bet there is a pretty decent chance that Foles is a Colt. But I am grateful that he did.
    • Interesting. The Colts are #1...but the LAR are #2. Two distinct roster building styles.   I think SF gets a bit slighted here. They have a great HC and a young QB who was lighting it up before getting hurt. He should be able to return just fine...and they have a ton of young talent and cap space.   Honestly, NO has a lot of young talent..but an older QB.   "Set up for the future" doesn't really mean as much in the NFL as it does other sports...unless you are Patriots (and the future doesn't really seem to matter). But it's a better place to be than not.
    • i don't get the Foles hate..... I think Brissett is a decent QB and deserves a chance, but I'm not afraid of letting him go.
