  • I fear a fake punt, it would be so Bilicheat.

    I did read somewhere that 8 teams since 1970 have went 8-1 on the road including playoffs and all won the super bowl.

    • Betting wise, take the Bolts. But this probably the toughest game in history to predict. The more I read objective articles, listen to radios and rewatch some of the games of both teams this year, reading AFC East and AFC West fans comments (knowledgeable fans, not haters), looking from the Pats' perspective the more I think we're the worst opponent the Patriots can have in this playoff. Worst matchups for them. The only matchup they have a bit of advantage is they have White and Burkhead, 2 very good receiving RBs, and we gave up a lot of those plays to this type of RBs this year. But I'll take that. Rather giving catches to RBs than WRs and TEs. We're 1 of the top teams defending TEs. Not a good news for Gronk.

      History, like always, is on Belichick and the Patriots' side. They've never gone 1-and-done in the playoff, never loss the 1st playoff game. Rarely lose the divisional game. It's the Championship game that they can lose sometimes, with just 1 week to rest and prepare/plan. Never loss a snow game, and the margin of victory in those snow games are not that close, including a 61 - 0 win vs. TEN. They rarely lose at home in playoffs, haven't loss at home this season.

      They were dominating in 2003 and 2004 playoffs with a consistent running game (Antowain Smith and a not too washed-up Cory Dillon). This year they have that with Michel. They haven't have a running game this consistent since 2004, not only the RB but also the OL in run blocking. Shaq Mason dominate inside. They avg. 5+ ypc running between the guards, avg. 6+ ypc running to the right side behind the RT and James Davilin, probably the best blocking fullback this year. This always has been the recipe for success in the postseason.

      So Brady this Brady that but it's their running game that gets overlooked by many. A diminishing Brady is basically just the game manager version of Brady early in his career. Doesn't force things, lay back and let the running game and defense take care of the game, manage the game, clutch when needed. The major difference is this NE defense is inferior to the ones that he had in those years. And Flores LB coach who calling their plays is busying interviewing head coach position with teams. They still can turn up 2 levels in the playoffs, but their defenses in those early SB runs had more good players, better role players, better veterans. This defense is younger and more athletic but made a lot of mistakes.

      • I posted this on the (doomed) Chargers forum too. My neighbors are Pats fans. My neighbors at my old house were.....you guessed it.....Pats fans. My old neighbors were tolerable but my new neighbors, and by new I have lived here 10 years, are ASSHOLES! Over and above their love for all things BAAAAASTAN, the wife really is a piece of work aka: ASSHOLE on the most high! You know the type......."I'm superior so fuck you peons" When all she really is, is a closet drunk. ANYway you get the picture.

        JUST ONCE I want to see them outside and have them see me, even if no words are exchanged....I just want to see the look in their eyes knowing that they LOST TO MY TEAM!!!!!

        And after we win I may do something juvenile like hanging a Bolts jersey in every window that faces their house. THAT would be EPIC!!!!!

        Win me this one boys........

                • Pats have weaknesses and we have a great DC to gameplan. I trust in Gus. Pats have 1 game against our 7 db D which isnt a lot to find weaknesses. For us to shut down the top run game with a pass oriented D is phenominal. Granted the Pats wiill throw more but that speedy alignment may just be what causes more issues as usually you run on a 7 db set.

                  You just know Belicheat will have to blitz to break Rivers from picking them apart as their D sucks at sacks. Be ready for blitzes and dial up Gordon and Ek. If they arent blitzing we have all the weapons in the world to beat up on their dbs.

                  Just need to keep calm and dont panic. I believe its the D that is going to show up big. They were dominant the last 2 games and our DL is really playing great which opens up the dbs to be agressive.

                  should be s close game...if we are within a score we know how to finish this year on the road.

                    Just to clarify, the correct term is Masshole.

                        • I think the offense will need to depend on Tyrell, Travis, and Gates to come up with big plays to score TDs, because the Pats D will cover Keenan, Mike W, and the RBs well and force Rivers to go elsewhere with the ball. Not saying Keenan, Mike, and the RBs won't make plays, but Belichick will try to take away the main threats. If Hunter can play, he may have some opptys too.

                          I can see Brady going after DB Mike Davis too. He is prone to penalties, and even Hayward hasn't been real sharp this season.

                          • There is no sports team I hate more than the Patriots. Please defeat them.

                            Play smart football please. Perhaps deactivate the dreadlock idiots Benjamin and Addea for this game in favor of Dylan Cantrell instead.

                            Borh Benjamin and Addea were the main reason we lost to the Patriots last season and you can bet Bellichek will be planning to attack them both.

                                As expected. The OL is getting beat like a drum.

                                  I'd argue the D is getting beat like a drum even worse than the O.

                                  D wins when it can dominate, and this D isn't very good at stopping the O when it's skilled and precision-like, like the Pats. Draft one O lineman and then all D, and hope Lamp can come back.

                                    Lamp is the big question going forward. And the O has to stay on the field to balance time of possession.

                                    • The Lamp and Feeney misses are arguably what will waste the last few years of Rivers career.

                                        I'm not ready to write Lamp off yet. Let's see if another off season gets that leg healthy for next season.
