Brady's SB wins had more to do with the Pats D.

 

Brady had as much to do with those Super Bowl wins as anyone else on the Pats.  He's shown the ability to win games with a terrific defense and a lousy defense, with good receivers and meh ones...same with running backs (he had the Pats in position to win both Super Bowls against the Giants, but the Genius' D couldn't stop the Giants both times).

This is definitely a great chance for the Jets to prove they're more than a week-to-week curiosity.  As far as the teams fighting for that 6th seed goes, EVERYTHING has been breaking right for the Jets...now it's on them to take advantage.

It's crazy how everyone around the Jets has figuratively dropped dead. 

Tennessee is 4-6

 

One of Miami or San Diego will be 4-6 after this week. The other a middling 5-5 (both have tough schedules)

 

Cleveland is playing the Bengals. Probably a better than 50% chance they will be 4-6

 

Baltimore is 4-5...toss up game in Chicago.

 

we might be in for an 8-8 wild card

 

The Jets can really seize the wildcard by the throat this weekend in Orchard Park, it'll give them another division/conference win and at 6-4 will put them solidly ahead of a bunch of teams. This means they'll lose.

 

If the Jets are 9-6 heading into Miami to finish the season, with wins over Buffalo, Miami, Cleveland, and Oakland (all very possible) and losses to Carolina and Baltimore...they may already have all the tiebreakers by then and the game will mean nothing.

I don't want to diminish Brady's greatness, but ascribing him too much credit when the victory over the "Greatest Show of Turf" had more to do with your defense.  New England's D won the game by getting three huge St. Louis turnovers.   Without those turnovers you lose.  The 2004 team had Corey Dillion and a strong running game.    Brady is a great QB, but he didn't carry the team to those two superbowl wins.

So no matter what happens on the play, Troy Aikman sides with whatever the QB did or whatever penalty that was called that is beneficial to the QB -- got it.

Brief look at the developing playoff picture. The Jets got a sh!t ton of luck AGAIN and hold the 6th seed with a tiebreaker over Miami (division record is tiebreaker when both teams vying for the wild card are from the same division) Miami however has destiny in their own hands much like the Jets.

 

Miami has a brutal game against Carolina next week. They can be jeckyll and hyde like us...but I don't seem them winning it (they will keep it close) They also have to play New England and I don't like their chances in Pittsburgh. They beat us once, we beat them once, they'll likely beat Buffalo as well...Miami finishes 7-9

 

Cleveland...4-6. Play Pittsburgh twice. Play New England, Play Chicago. No way they're any better than 6-10. They're hanging by a thread. I can see them getting up for one of the Pittsburgh games and beating them though.

 

Baltimore...4-6. Licking their chops with Geno coming in next week. But they also have to deal with Pitt, Cinci, NE, Detroit as well. My gut says they go 3-3 and finish 7-9.

 

Raiders...4-6. Real tough team to evaluate. Not a ton of talent... plenty of team speed but make a sh!tload of stupid plays. With Dallas, KC, SD, Denver, and the Jets on the sched...I think the best they can muster up is 7-9 but 6-10 is more likely. Texans are just a joke now and I can't put much stock in their win today.

 

Tennessee...4-6. Winnable game next week but then a brutal stretch of indy-denver-arizona. Though they do finish with Texans-Jags. If they can beat Arizona (no easy task) then 8-8 might do it for them because they'd have the tiebreaker over us and Pittsburgh and Miami

 

Pittsburgh at 4-6. They're the one team I'd actually predict can run the table and just blow this thing apart...however if you look at them top to bottom they're really not that great. They can lose to Baltimore, they can lose to Cinci...they can certainly lose to GB right before Christmas when Rogers will be back. Heck would it shock anybody if even Cleveland picked them off along the way? Dangerous though. Would not count them out.

 

San Diego 4-6 with too much Denver/KC to deal with. Shovel dirt on them

 

And now we get to the 5-5 Jets. Crushing loss. Horrific performance by Geno. Another post bye week letdown. Really our only hope in Baltimore is that the Ravens might be deflated and fatigued after back to back OT games...the most recent a tough loss. Still, they are tough at home and would absolutely feast on somebody like Geno...who I don't think necessarily gets rattled...but just has a tough time reading defenses.

Every time the 2013 Jets seem poised to force people to take them seriously as more than a team in rebuilding mode, they have a game like today's.  They now have a -85 point differential.  They also have a lousy conference record (2-5). 

 

This loss was a tough one for the Jets, because at 6-4 they really would've been in terrific shape...3-3 in their last six probably would've gotten it done.  Hell, 3-3 might STILL get it done, as none of the teams in competition with them seem capable of putting any kind of real run together...but Jets aren't in great shape with tiebreakers.  Pittsburgh and Tennessee already have them against the Jets. 

 

BTW the Bills have the Falcons, Bucs, and Jags coming up as their next three games...they have a chance to get to 7-7 and sneak into this thing.  The race for #6 is getting crazier by the week...Jets could have buried the Bills completely today.

Good luck to your team CR1976. Biggest Panthers game in 5 years and an extremely rare primetime game. Haven't been this excited for a regular season game....maybe ever. Should be a good one.

Thank dr33, you too!  I think the big matchup is going to be NE's O vs. Carolina's D.  I think Carolina scores at least 27 tonight without much problem...the Patriot D is just too beat up.  So the question becomes whether or not Brady and Co. can put up 28+.

I'd say they can. The secret is the Panthers defense hasn't faced an impressive pass offense yet this season. The 49ers matchup was perfect for them since the 49ers like to pound the ball, and the Panthers defense could match up with them easily. But there are a lot of question marks with this secondary as it's a band of misfits. And they really struggled with the only good TE they have played (Tony Gonzalez). So Brady spreading the offense out and running hurry up will be a different challenge for this defense. They also constantly rotate all 4-linemen in and out, so the hurry up offense will be key for NE.

I'm really curious to see what the plan is for the Pats O...if they're going to go all-out and go into "Shock and Awe"...basically say "Hey, we're back, the problems we've been having are temporary, we're not struggling anymore!"
