NFL Week 4!

61 posts in this topic

Oh yeah, it's perfect. This guy contradicts himself. On one hand, he's got the Patriots surging back into top-contender status because they blew out Miami (wrong...they're not a top contender with that defense, no way). Then he points out how the victory was driven in large part by Miami's failures on special teams (correct). So what are the Pats: a top contender or a team that got some flukey breaks that helped them go 3-1?

The author also correctly points out that the defense is not nearly as strong as the one that was a big factor in the previous Super Bowl victories. So again, how is this team a top contender?

3-1 doesn't have me fooled one bit...if Henne had shown more patience (Miami had guys open all over the place...Henne made some terrible decisions) and Miami's special teams hadn't imploded, that game is much closer...big ifs, to be fair, and I'm not taking anything away from my team, but I'm not now of the belief that the Pats have become this special teams terror, destined to block punts and kicks and return TDs on runbacks. You yourself pointed out how Buffalo gave NE all they could handle up in Foxboro...the Bills, who haven't really scored much against ANYONE except NE...does that sound like a true contender to you?

I think your right. 3-1 is an illusion. I find it unlikely that the NE special teams are going duplicate Monday night.

wow. seems like anyone that doesnt share your opinion doesnt know what theyr talking about. your reaching cr, and the records on skip

You couldn't be more wrong about that, but so be it.

I stated my case and made fair points to back it up. If you read my last post you'll also see that I agreed with Vic Carucci's points that the win over Miami was driven as much by Miami's special teams gaffes as anything else, and that the defense isn't anywhere near the level it was when the Pats truly were a top contender. So for him to say earlier that New England had somehow become a top contender again, does that make any sense at all?

The upcoming game against the Ravens (which I'm going to) is going to be a terrific test for both the Pats' offense and defense...the Pats' offense will get tested against another excellent D, and Baltimore's offense hasn't really gotten going yet, and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if Flacco got it going against this bunch.

How could they possibly? You know many things have to go "right" (or wrong, in Miami's case) for ANY NFL team to have a day like that on special teams? There's a reason why Miami's special teams coach was canned the next day.

YES immediately. Moss spreads the field, the biggest impact will be had by Adrian Peterson and the Minny TE underneath.

Conversely, Welkers productivity is reduced as is Brady's.

Welker, thanks to Moss, has never had to face an opponent's #1 corner...there is no way he thrives in that environment. Sure he might still be able to produce a bit but nothing like he was used to. I do think that the Pats running game will get a boost simply because they'll be forced to play more and Green-Ellis isn't that bad and Woodhead looks pretty good too...

It'll be interesting to see if Favre is going to force the ball to Moss now...how he responds will determine the winners and losers of the trade...could end up being the corners facing the Favre/Moss combo...

I continue to maintain the idea, that New England WILL go out and get someone to supplement Randy Moss.. before the October 19th trade-deadline. But, should 10\19 come and go, and the Cheatriots fail to bring in another quality WR.... Wes Welker is toast! Should that be the case.. "looking forward" to our rematch in December, would be an extreme understatement. The sheer notion of putting Wild`Wes on Revis Island (and Cromar on whoever) makes me want to run around screaming.

..however.. I still have to wait 11½ more days, with my fingers crossed. ;)
