Pats-Broncs Game


-JJ-

Recommended Posts

Another 15 minutes of play isn't going to do anything but risk death to their SB chances. Seriously.

I'd say a 5 TD lead strongly indicates that they are "sharp" enough.

However, they didn't try to throw for a TD there and now they're kicking.....so....maybe I'm just a bitter, jealous creep thats hatin on the Pats?

I hate it when I'm wrong. Why do I suck?

I hate you JJ......lol

hehe. yes you let your hatin' get in the way of an otherwise brilliant mind;-)

I will say this; If Denver came back to win this, then I'm going to church tomorrow and I'll never do anything naughty again.

I got to give him credt. You see the piece before the game how before each game he visits a medical problem person. Even the playoff game. Nothing wrong with that.

I just noticed I am allowed to make another post. To answer your question, yes! As I am a Patriots fan :ashamed:

In all seriousness, I NEVER want a player to be injured, especially a class act and an immortal like Peyton Manning.

O that makes sense. Lol

Yea, he's a good guy. I like to tease about all the hoopla over his beliefs. I really only want him to fail because of the garbage that so many people say about what it means that he got 316 yds last week. Terry Bradshaw sounded like a clown earlier today while discussing it, saying "It really is a scary thing if you think about what it means. He is truly blessed by God".

All I can think is, can we get back to discussing the fact that he sucks as a QB?

I don't get it. Why did Brady kick the ball? :scratch:

rather than risk injury just kick it on 3rd down and catch them off guard, Not that you need to catch them off guard at this point but its good practice and BB likes pulling those kind of plays.

Its called a drop kick..usually by the QB.

Last time we did was back when Flutie did.

I saw Cassell do that in '08. I think it was against the Bills.

Didn't Flutie score a fg on that?

JJ a "drop kick" is an alternative (legal) means of kicking a FG or extra point. Like with the Flutie play. Instead of using a holder the ball can bounce off the ground before it's kicked.

This was more of a "pooch" kick, or punt...

And yes, the idea is to catch the other team off guard with no one deep to return the ball. Kick it low, let it roll, and get field position.

It was a great call (probably not necessary, but a good call regardless). The Broncos didn't see it coming at all.

For those who constantly rail on the Patriots for "running up the score..." well, now they're punting on 3rd down. Happy?????? ;)

Oh yes you're right, pooch kick. And it probably wasn't necessary except in BB's mind of leaving no stones unturned:)

And Brady didn't go for the 7 TD record....ahhhhhhhhhhhh;)

Are you ready to tell me I was right since the 3rd game that the NE defense is actually good? Let me know when :)

Especially with Chung,Spikes, and Mcourty back.

Gotta give you your props on the defense. They played mad lights-out. The only TD they allowed was off Brady's INT and the Broncos were working on a short field there (I think they started at NE's 24 after the pick).

The way they handled the option was absolutely perfectly executed. I think, knowing Belichick, that the coach likes this team because they listen. He'll take the scrap-heap undrafted free agents because they'll do whatever you tell them to do. I think that's why players like Adalius Thomas never worked out here. You need hungry, disciplined guys in a Belichick defense. Guys who are fighting for their professional lives in every game, and who know that next week, they could be back to selling insurance.

We'll see if they're talented enough to keep this going. That was a lot of fun though... a lot of fun. :thmup:

    • Shhh, the more he is "overlooked" the better off Downs and the Colts will be.
    • Dude diving for that catch made a fan of me. 
    • He is superbly quick, nearly unguardable. A very high % as a extension of our run game. With the speed to wheel them over the top. The guy should perform as a 9/10 in our offense.    
    • I think PFF is useful for analyzing individual players. But if I want to analyze the team's pass rush performance, I don't want to know how many times the individual players pressured the QB; I want to know the number of plays we managed to pressure the opposing QB.    For example, the QB drops back 50 times in a game, and he's pressured 15 times, and sacked three times. Let's say each of those 15 plays where he's pressured, there are two defenders getting pressure. PFF would count that as 30 pressures for the defense, because they're acknowledging that two players got a pressure on one play. Same process if each sack was shared among two players; they'd count six sacks, even though the QB was only sacked on three plays.   And that's fine, because that's their focus. But I think that context needs to be acknowledged when we're talking about team performance. Because, as we know with our pass rush last year, we feasted against bad offenses, but there were too many situations where we failed to get pressure at all.    So I like to use PFR when talking about team performance, because their sack/pressure stats are on a per-play basis, rather than per-player. Both metrics can be used together, I just think PFR tells us 'the opposing QBs dropped back this many times, faced pressure on this many plays, and were sacked this many times.' And now we can clearly see how frequently the pass rush is affecting the QB. Or in the case of the 2023 Colts, how infrequently...
