This year is just like 2013

Recommended Posts

Chiefs leading the league in offense and passing like the Broncos. Losing to NE on SNF like Broncos by a FG, losing to SD on TNF, and then played the Chargers (#6 seed) and NE (#2) at home to go to SB, 2 teams they lost to in the regular season. Chiefs most likely make the SB, IMO.

 

The only difference - there’s no defensive team like the Seahawks to challenge the Broncos like that year.

 

Could we see a barn burner repeat with Rams vs Chiefs? We have to wait and see.

Over the last 15 years, only 1 team has been to the Super Bowl more than half of the time: New England. They have 8 Super Bowl appearances in that time span -- by far the most.

 

I think NE goes to the Super Bowl again, as much as I'd hate it.

Brady and the Patriots have had their fair share of issues on the road vs AFC West teams on the road.

 

2005 road playoff loss at Broncos plus several regular season losses at Mile High including to Kyle Orton and Josh McDaniels, 2008 knee blown out vs Chiefs, 2013 and 2015 AFCCG losses, 2014 road loss 14-41 vs Chiefs etc. is a big reason they don’t want to play on the road vs AFC West.

Rams looked REALLY good against the Cowboys today. The offensive line looked like they did in the beginning of the year. Goff looked comfortable. The defense made some plays. I don't see why they couldn't walk into the Superdome and upset the Saints (unless Nick Foles has something to say about that haha).

 

Rams are being slept on honestly. They looked poor down the stretch and it felt like everybody gave up on them, but lets not act like the 3 teams they lost to (Saints, Philly, Bears), aren't also really good.

Just like Chiefs made changes to their defensive personnel and philosophy a couple of games before the season ended, the Rams switched to running with 2 TEs instead of 3 WRs and the results showed.

 

Like the Chiefs vs Raiders, the production came against spoiler teams like Cardinals and 49ers, so no one noticed. When they do the same vs playoff teams, everyone will sit back and notice.

At least the AFC title game won't go through New England.

 

NE has not won an AFCCG on the road since 2004 vs Steelers. Both their road AFCCG wins on the road were against the Steelers in 2001 and 2004.

 

Thats when Steelers D were accusing Patriots O of knowing what blitzes were coming from Dick LeBeau.

Just shows the home field advantage they have. They're a different team on the road in the playoffs.

Or like Peyton used to tell Dungy “those guys have ears everywhere at home” :)

Not really.  The Patriots teams that didn't have homefied, like this current team, weren't as good as the teams that did.

I don't remember anything about that. Could you elaborate more to me?  How did pats know from Lebeau? Did he tell them or steal his signs etc....?

2013, 2015 and 2018, the Patriots lost at Miami and lost HFA because of that. Plus, the Patriots have not gone back to the SB after a year where they lost the previous SB (2008 season albeit due to Brady injury, 2012 season). All signs point to the Chiefs going to the SB where the last 2 QBs with 50 TDs and 5000 yards have made it to the SB.

Thanks.

Reminds me some of the playoff game we had with them in early 2000's....the game where Peyton threw a bunch of interceptions and to Rodney Harrison. That was the game Tom Moore told Peyton just before kickoff "you run the play we send you, your NOT ALOWWED TO AUDIBLE." What a time to take away from what Peyton does best(pre-snap reads, read defenses and audible) Lol.

 

Their corruption is Deep and we only know just a small percentage of what they do and did.

Their SB's are Tainted and should have asterisks by them.

If the Chiefs play like they did against us nobody is beating them.

The chiefs defense looked like a SB defense. I think statistics were wacky because teams were passing so much against them.

Yeah, in the sense that it's a defense that benefits from a SB offense...

Now, watch the AFCCG where the Chargers or Patriots stay patient with the run and keep the game closer albeit in a losing cause most likely.

    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....      
    • Middleton had a contract that was 4 years or longer and the Bucks have his bird rights. That doesn't apply for Randle and the Pelicans.
    • I can’t believe they’d leave out the Collins/Painter/Orlovsky trio. Those three men are instrumental in Colts lore. 
    • Bert Jones....if not for that shoulder injury, who knows what might have been. 
    • i would have loved to see Mike Hart, Donald brown in his prime Dominique Rhodes and Joseph addai run behind our solid oline. I bet they all would have had amazing rushing stats last year
