I was glad to see Denver won the game.  It's kind of funny that the only Pats fan posting on here is Dynasty13 who wasn't over confident in the first place.  I wonder what the reasons are for the Pats loss from the other posters?  Injuries? Bad line? Overconfident? Denver got lucky?  I expected the Pats to win but I knew the Broncos had a chance with #18's experience and that legit defense.  From my point of view, the Broncos flat out outplayed the Pats.

 

Normally it's around this time that some injury report surfaces up with Brady and how he was playing the playoff game he lost in with said injury.

I give myself and others I know 3 days max to dwell all over a loss. And after 3 days I call a doctor if they don't shape up. (just kidding)

 

It sucks to lose, but seriously use the 3 day rule IMO.

 

Besides Pats fans should still feel okay. They won it all last year and are almost always in the AFCCG so they might be back in the same game NEXT YEAR all over again. Sigh........

 

I think the most painful thing at times though with a loss is HOW you lose. Sometimes getting blown out even hurts LESS then say a close loss like we had in 2005 to the Steelers or how the Vikings lost this year lol.

It usually only takes me a couple of days to get over a Colts loss. The night it happens is the worse obviously but as the week moves on by Wednesday I am usually ok. That SB loss in 2009 was about the only time I dwelled on a loss as a fan for multiple weeks. That was bad, it was bad the way it ended is what made it worse. I didn't watch any Football highlights or Post on ESPN for around a month after that game. If the Broncos lose I will be fine with it pretty quickly because I am not a Broncos fan, I will just feel bad for Peyton for a few days.

Tough loss last Sunday, would of been nice to pull that game out, or have had it in NE.  After a 10-0 start felt pretty good about our chances to at least get HFA through the playoffs.  Then we lost 4 of 6 and ended up with the #2 seed.   I think after having key injuries in the playoffs in '11, '12 and '13, BB figured once we got the bye he erred on the side of health over HFA.

 

The Denver D play a great game and Peyton did not make a mistake.  Going into game I felt that if we did not make a mistake and/or was even on turnovers I like our chances and we should win the game.  Well two tings happened that have not happened in a decade, a missed PAT and a QB that was hit over 20 times.  Still we were able to fight though these and had a two point conversion to tie in the end but came up short.

 

Brady's pick to Miller was really bad and it likely would of been a low throw to Gronk.  Had it been a normal throw to Gronk it likely would of gone over Miller, just a bad decision on Brady's part.  He played solid the rest of the game given the pressure he was under, but when you do not play a complete clean game it can come back to bite you, sometimes a clean game is needed in the playoffs, especially a close game.

 

Our OL did not help out, nor the fact that it appeared that we did not make some adjustments in the silent count.  Give credit to the Denver crowd for being loud during the game.

 

Would of been good to win, but you can not win them all.

You're a good man Yehoodi & because I like you & appreciate your balanced approach to breaking down games, I do feel bad for you & other Patriots fans I enjoy around here. Like you say, your o-line just couldn't protect Brady. Your team will still win 12 games next year like clockwork. 

 

I won't lie to ya. I was rooting for Manning, but Brady still had a tremendous year with constantly changing pieces up front. Von Miller was simply a buzz saw sack machine that refused to be denied. It hurts I know.

    • One other point. The pool is much larger when  it comes to pro QBs.    The pool is much smaller when it comes to GM choices.    I'll say what Ballard has said. When you have more darts to throw at the board you will hit on more picks. I think the same analogy can be used when choosing a GM. There are far fewer darts to throw.    How many GMs are in the hall of fame? How many QBs? 
    • Name the decent GMs in the league then if that's true. I bet you could name more decent QBs tha  you could decent GMs. And it's funny, because all these decent GMs cant find franchise QBs. It's not that they dont exist. They just dont find them. 
    • We all know it takes the right GM the right Coach and the right QB to be a perennial SB contender.    In my opinion it is a lot harder to find the tight Coach and right GM than it is to find the right QB. I feel like it is easier to measure the overall talent and leadership skills of a QB than it is to find a Coach and GM who work well together. A Coach who knows how to lead the entire team well.    I voted GM. He has built this team to where everyone can lean on each other unlike we have seen before. Even when Manning was here there was only 1 year I can remember where both offense and defense did really well. And that was 2005 when we were undefeated until we faced Brees and the chargers.    Ballard has built the most complete team I have ever seen in the Indy era. And that includes HC.    Theres no GM in the league that I have faith could find a good QB like I do with Ballard. In the end i could see him trading 6 draft picks to move up to draft a starting caliber QB.    Now I am of the opinion that Tom Brady is a system QB with a great GM/HC. We have seen several NE QBs have success in that system and go elsewhere and have little to no success. Unlike a lot of backups in this league. I'm not saying Brady is mediocre by any means. But he is a system QB nonetheless.    My point is, I can see Ballard finding a QB who can fit THIS system. There is nothing wrong with system QBs. After all. Brady has how many rings?      Also. I'm taking nothing away from Andrew who I believe is an elite QB. I am just saying having a GM who can assemble a scouting department like we have, coaches, and players like this, is most definitely more important than any QB. Sustained success. I will rejoice when I see Ballard stay here after Andrew retires, because I believe he is just that good. QBs retire a lot sooner than GMs do.    In Ballard I trust. 
    • I'd rather call it the "derby" offense.  Since we'll have all those fast Thorobreds on the field.        Gitty-up!   Hey, "Gitty-up" is still better than "build the monster."   Edit: . I gave you a hard time (jokingly) about 2,threads (nascar and indy) , i replied, now i realize it should have been in the other thread.   Who's the dumb-donkey now?  ME !   I crack myself up.
    • Last season is not a career and no matter what stats are posted no one would put Luck in the top five-no one.
