Is this now like a Red Sox curse thing? 

 

Do we need to bury DA at the Devil's crossroad after midnight? I think you'd have plenty of willing volunteers from here :lol:

 

I don't know I heard if you stare into DA's eyes, one turns to stone.  You might want to be careful attempting to bury him at Devil's Crossroad.

Thats a gambler's folly though. the fact is that we did score that many points and there's 0 reason why we can't score another 21 points this half. Not complaining but just pointing out an interesting thing. 

 

Nor is there any reason why we should score another 21 points... 

 

It's not a really a gamblers folly at all. Gamblers folly would be expecting previous independent trials to affect future trials. A series of football plays aren't independent trials necessarily. 

 

I'm actually supporting your point more by pointing that out.

I agree that we can score another 21, but using that same logic, since we scored a TD on the first drive of the game, we can score a TD on every drive of every game.  You gotta be realistic with what you expect

The folley/fallacy is Superman's stating that most teams don't score 42 points in a game and thus we probably won't score another 21 this half...

When Allen dropped the pass and Vinatieri missed the FG, you knew it was going to happen.  This team, under Chuck, is absolutely incapable of playing a complete game.  Hell, they even tried to give the game back to us with the fake punt, but we wouldn't take it .

I'm not saying that at all. I'm saying the opposite though. Say we average 28 points a game, right? Well just because we scored 21 in the first half doesn't mean we're only going to score 7 this half. You'd like to see one of those 40 point games that balance out the Crap we pulled against the Chiefs

Yes, but teams don't usually put up 40+ points in a game, so it doesn't make sense to expect it, even if we had a great start

    • Actually if you look at the entire picture since the divisions got re-aligned in 2002 we would be the only team out of the 4 teams (others being the Texans, Titans, and Jags) that have even been relevant. Those other teams have never even played in a SB (Titans did in 1999) but I am talking since the AFC South was formed. We have been to 2 SB's and won 1. No other teams have ever been scared of the Texans, Titans, or Jags I would be safe to say but when we had Peyton that were scared poopless to face us and even when we had a healthy Luck teams were scared as well. In 2018 when we won the playoff game at Houston with Luck that showed everyone that we were the better team when healthy. Houston was loaded that season with Watson, Hopkins, Watt, and Clowney and the game was over at halftime with Luck healthy.   As long as we make the playoffs it doesn't even bother me that we don't win the division. A lot of teams that win their division stink it up in the playoffs. I would rather make a Title Game or a SB than win my division if I had to choose between the choices. 
    • Based on this, we can actually get the Browns' 1st rounder No.26 and pick No.91 for our pick No.21 if we move back just 5 spots, I like it     I have read Rich Hill's articles on PatsPulpit. He is good with numbers. Of course, there will always be a Patriots bias on a Patriots SB Nation article, especially when there are gray areas for interpretation but the quality of his numbers he puts out is a good one. Similarly, I like Scott Kacsmar articles too.    Ultimately, in trades, two hands need to be willing to clap based on a value agreed. The rest is pundit and draft day fan speak fodder.
    • There have been times in the recent years, where the secondary looked confused and out of position. I hope this coach can eliminate those mistakes. Maybe it was just that the players were young or not used to playing together. 
    • If he plays bad and we start something like 1-4, this forum will implode. Rivers was good this past season for a 38 yr old, Luck was very good when he played, Peyton was a top 3 QB of all-time, who knows what we have here in reality? Can Wentz play at least as good as Rivers did or will he be like JB = a .500 QB?? 
    • Drafting Montez Sweat would have been Sweet instead of trading down. Hopefully, Rock and Banogu develop and show something in 2021.
