Marcus Mariota has 5 TD's all year.  Today he had 2 in the 1st quarter.  This Pats D gives me ulcers.

The same D that held Rodgers to 17 points last week?

I would think the clear slippage of Tom Brady would be giving you ulcers.  He is still really good, but is clearly on the decline.

I think I know more than you about our local team Kev.  Every year the team wins championships it's about balance.   You'll get the occasional team winning it once with an unbalanced team.


I figured you'd know what championship fans set as standards.

I haven't really seen that. What I saw today was 12 playing terrified as there was no protection around him. Being in his face every play has always been the key to beating Brady, even when he was in his prime. That's what we saw today. His suckiness was a result of Tenn's front seven, which includes shutting down the NE run game.

I've seen that all the time.  Put pressure on any QB and their play drops. When your D is that bad you have to play perfect and Brady was far from that but the rest of the O was worse.

NFL fans want to look at the off season turmoil at the be all, end all.  Brady not being there for all of the OTA's hurt him.  Not at the level at the GM'S off season and the lost of trust after the SB


This D is so bad that no one person should overcome it.  Ask Peyton.   The one year the Colts won he was average and the D was stellar.   Every other year he was stellar,  they didn't win.

Why was that?

I will ask again: the same D that held Rodgers to 17 points last week?

Coming into this week, New England was 11th in the NFL in points allowed per game.  But apparently that is too much to ask the (alleged) GOAT to overcome?  Peyton Manning would have loved for some of those "bad" defenses in Indy to have ranked 11th in the NFL in points allowed.

Also, Brady's slippage is apparent if you watch him play this year.  He doesn't look the same.  His numbers are way down (TDs, YPA, QBR, etc.), and the eye test tells the tale as well.  He has 1 TD pass in the last three games (and that was a fluke, as he overthrew Edelman and lucked out when it went right to Josh Gordon).

Every dog has it's day.  It's also at home where bad defenses play better and Green Bay is not a great team.


The D of the Pats will not allow them to get to the AFC championship game.

Why are you changing the subject?  ???

This is about Brady and the Patriots D.

The Patriots D was 11th coming into this week in points allowed per game (better than the 3 other real contenders in the AFC - KC, Pittsburgh and the Chargers).  Their D is not great, but their "bend but don't break" philosophy works as long as the offense holds up their end of the bargain.

Do you think Brady is still playing as good as he ever has?

In other news, the Rams D tried like hell to give that game away at the end, but held on.  For as much talent as they have on D, they sure are underachieving.  The offense has bailed them out most weeks thus far, but they are playing with fire.

The Saints look like THE team to beat right now in the entire league.

No but the D is worse than the #'s.  You well know #'s don't tell the truth. I think I know more about the Pats than other teams.

You think I'm being a homer? You know me better. Brady playing sub par leads to 7-3. 9-1 would say the D is better.  We here in N.E. have different standards for obvious reasons.

I never said you were a homer, but I have seen enough online chatter over the years to know that Patriots fans have been conditioned to defend Brady to the death, while always blaming almost any failure on Belichick and/or the defense, and last year's Super Bowl only made it worse. 

Do you think Brady is still consistently playing at an elite level?

I answered you all ready. No.  But like other elite players, their play is affected by bad play around them.

Every fan thinks great players never fail but they fail all the time.

Speaking of fail, the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles.  I predicted they would have a Super Bowl hangover, as they seemed too fat and sassy all off season, but this is a much severe drop that even I thought there'd be.  Their defense looks pathetic and Wentz doesn't look like the stud he was in 2017.  Makes you wonder how much they miss the assistant coaches they lost.

KC still does not have a defense I trust.  Not that the Patriots or Steelers have defenses that I trust a lot either, but the Chiefs is the worst of the bunch.  And it remains to be seen how well that offense will do in the elements in January.  Heck, they still need to win their division. The overlooked Chargers look as good as anybody in the AFC and are only a game behind the Chiefs in the loss column.

If the Saints and Rams secure the 1 and 2 seeds in the NFC, which seems like a good bet, neither will have to play in the elements in January.

Home field for KC is big though.  They will have to lose 2 and the Pats run the table to lose the #1.  Pats still have the Vikings in MN and the Steelers at home.  The rest are easy games.

Actually, the Chiefs could win the rest of their games except one and still not win the division.  If they lose to the Chargers and the Chargers win out, both would be 14-2 and the Chargers would have the tiebreaker (better conference record) and win the division.  Seems unlikely, but stranger things have happened.

Where ya staying? I just committed to going back to DF next year. I've always done pretty well with AirBNB down there.

And if you're near Bellas Artes/Zocallo grab breakfast at el Cardenal. Very nice experience.
