Don’t get me wrong, I love that the Pats pulled off the OT win and I commend them for sticking it out, but damn was that too close for comfort. Our three losses this year have all come after holding a lead into the second half or fourth quarter. Even games we ended up winning, like this one and Denver, the Patriots are letting the other team back into the game. I mean any time you can make Sanchez look like a half decent NFL quarterback you’re doing something wrong.
If the Jets weren’t such of a joke offensively, they might have pulled off this win. Actually they should have. Why would they keep trying to run the ball? All they had to do was throw the ball down field and they were guaranteed a solid 20 yard gain, right?. Not one of them turns around and looks for the ball. Bill is the master of defense, but it hasn’t shown one bit with our pass coverage. Just too easy. A Super Bowl contender can’t let Mark Sanchez look like Joe Namath. Something needs to be done. I don’t know if that means benching/getting rid of some players or coming up with a different game plan, but enough is enough. I hate the fact that yesterday’s win feels like a loss.
McCourty could serve better as a #2 or #3 CB but he is playing the other teams best players every week and is not getting any better. We need a #1 CB that is a pro-bowler (i vote Asante Samuel). Dennard was supposed to be good but was useless other than an interception that anyone could have caught. Arrington should break an ankle or something..
Dennard useless ???
Bring in a #1 CB ???
What game were you watching
a few people that agree with me :
I could go on. Dennard was thrown over numerous times by the 31st ranked QB in the league, had 2 tackles, and played on 82 of 84 snaps while starting in mccourtys normal position. Mccourty atleast picks up some tackles (averaging 6 a game) while protecting the run.
how do you get rid of your entire secondary, or even two (half) of them mid season? Just wondering whether that is even an option.
more of a figurative speech. didn’t mean it to be taken literally
