Dallas exposed Denver's defense badly today. I don't care that Von Miller's coming back since he's made a career of disappearing in big games against good teams and that was when he was on HGH. Denver still has road games at Indianapolis and at San Diego plus a 15-day stretch of Kansas City twice sandwiching a trip to Foxboro.
Patriots defense played great again but the offense... The offense looks like an offense that's built around 2 athletic all-pro TE's but one happens to be in jail and the other has been changing his tampon for the last 3 weeks. Hence the Pats early season ineffectiveness especially in the red zone where Gronk is a monster weapon. The problem today is when the weather becomes a monsoon the entire field becomes the red zone with good defenses loading-up on the run and playing press coverage knowing the elements and the lack of explosiveness in the Pats receiving corps won't cost them deep.
Gary Kubiak will be the first coach fired in the NFL this season. Houston has been god-awful since they were emasculated in Foxboro late last year and that carried into the playoffs and now into this season.
Sucks that the Pats lots, but in the week-to-week NFL, sh!t happens, and besides, the Pats were hardly dominant in going 4-0...some breaks were going to go against them eventually.
I'm actually pretty optimistic, in that the Pats have somehow managed to allow just 70 points through five games. The big test will come against the Saints of course (and I expect the Pats to give up 30+ in that one)...but if they somehow hold that team to 20 points or so, I'll start believing in them...a little.
Gronk, get the fvck back on the field for Week 6.
