I don't doubt Bryant > Jones, it was just uncertainty about the matchups. If Revis was on Bryant the entire game, he probably doesn't score more than Jones. He was completely shut down after the 1st quarter.

I didn't watch the game, but from what I read this morning, Revis nor Cromartie could stop him. He slowed down due to dehydration otherwise he could have run the table on the Jets D (based on the newspaper this morning).

I took a late flier on Ochocinco in the draft in my deep TD-only league. Its not even 1 full half yet, but his role on the Pats looks like bench warmer. Eesh.

Where have you been? Do you only come out when the Pats are on???

Ocho will be third or forth string by week 7. He is just not that good. All the talk about Moss coming back doesn't speak well for Ocho-stinko.

FYI: hoping for big night for Welker, carpenter and Moreno later. :whistling:

Where did I say he was good, or even imply that? I said as long as he tries...Moss was making absolutely no effort last season (and not much after 2007, really). I posted quite some time ago that I wasn't in favor of Ocho coming aboard. But I don't think the Pats were hoping for huge numbers from him.

Unless hes mostly sitting out because hes still learning the offense, he might already be there. Welker, Branch, Gronkowski, and Hernandez have all gotten much more looks and playing time.

Did not say you did. I was just adding my commentary.

I agree, I don't think the Pats see him as anything but depth for Welker. Your TE's are already over shadowing you WR's....this week. Next week Brady will use them as decoy's for Welker & Branch.


Wow. Henne just got hit by two trains on 3rd & long.

This has been the New England script, for the past 5 years. It's Madden football, from September till November. Then the playoffs come, and they're nowhere to be found.

They'll impress me if they can do this in January. If not.. it'll be 4 playoff losses in-a-row.

I feel bad for Jason Taylor. He deserved better than to have his career end like this. He should've stayed in New York. :(

They do that deliberately, to try to intimidate other teams/coaches/players that are watching them. They've done it for years.
The saddest thing is (with the exception of the Jets & Ravens) it actually works! So many teams psych themselves out before the coinflip, when they play New England.

1,110 yards of offense between the Pats and Dolphins tonight. A win is a win, but BB will definitely harp on Miami's 488 yards of offense...even if some of them came in garbage time.

I wouldn't say Pat fans are dancing, and no one won a Super Bowl last night, but yeah, I'm enjoying a Week 1 victory. Who wouldn't?

To be fair (and I know you're not capable of this), the last two seasons fit firmly under the "nowhere to be found" category. The season before those, they lost Brady in Week 1 and still managed to go 11-5 (becoming the second team in NFL history to miss the playoffs with that mark). And the season before that...well, we all know what happened...18-1 with one Giant loss. Sucked for me, but a great moment for football, in that it was one of the greatest upsets in the history of the league...but at least they still got to the big game (as a Jet fan, you're not in much of a position to minimize Super Bowl appearances). The year before that, they lost in the AFC championship game to the Colts.

So if we're keeping a tally of the last 5 Patriot seasons:
2010: disastrous loss to Jets at home
2009: embarrassing loss to Ravens at home
2008: missed playoffs, though went 11-5 w/o Brady
2007: reached SB, lost to Giants
2006: reached AFC Conf final, lost to Colts

If you want to criticize the Pats for the last two seasons, fine...they deserve all of it, and I've said that in a lot of ways they've morphed into the Colts...a team that puts up pretty numbers during the regular season, but doesn't respond well come playoff time. They've become a bit of a front-running bully team. But to lump all FIVE seasons together as the same thing over and over again isn't at all accurate.

Pats defense was a lot better last night than people realize. After the first drive of the game the Dolphins went 2-13 on 3rd down which killed the Pats last season as the worst 3rd down team in the league. On a hot & humid Miami night the Pats rotated their D-line like crazy in order to keep everybody fresh and that resulted in Henne getting popped multiple times and 4 sacks. The Dolphins got 14 points via a turnover (Brady INT returned inside 10) and garbage time (final Miami TD). The Pats D basically played prevent for the final 8:00 of the game because nomatter what Miami's offense did it was obvious Miami's D wouldn't stop Brady. The game was much more a 38-10 or 31-10 variety than the 38-24 final score.

Is it the Shaun Merrimen impact?



Partly. It's the GM Buddy Nix's impact.

Some names:

Kyle Williams.
Marcell Darieus
Kelvin Shepard
Nick Barnett
Kirk Morrison

A transformation of the defense has begun. Mostly SEC guys which, although we know that conferences cheats like crazy and never gets caught, produces big, physical players on defense and that is how the Bills are building this defense. Finally, what the living hell took so long!

On offense, the Bills finally have a solid QB in Fitz. While is is not spectacular, he is a smart QB (high Wonderlic scores, Ivy League guy) who is mobile, and has become the unquestioned leader of the team.

The OL is still is work in progress, but is slowly coming together, but I do not expect it to be a strength.

Lee Evans will NOT be missed. He will help Baltimore more then hurt Buffalo. David Nelson and Donald Jones are two WR's that you will hear more about someday (just not on ESPN, they are too busy with their beloved Pats and Eagles now). Stevie Johnson is the clear #1 WR here and he and Fitz hopefully will be signed soon.

Fred Jackson is a tough runner, and can find a small hole and fight for yards. He runs like every carry is his last. CJ Spiller needs to learn from Fred, but I am fearing he will not live up to his billing.

8-8 would be a good season and something to build on for 2012..

Now if we can just get a real owner....
