That was definitely the worst-coached game I've ever seen from BB...that fake punt before the first half, really? And I almost thought they were getting cocky in the fourth quarter, taking their time driving the field on that 14-play drive like they were up ten instead of down ten. They ran the clock out better than we did :P

Of course I thought we were doomed beyond belief when we choked away points after that INT by Harris in the first quarter :lol: I really thought not getting a TD would be huge - of course I never imagined we'd hold NE to 14 for like 59 minutes of the game.

After watching all the games in the playoffs and watching as many games every Sunday, I definitely think Aaron Rodgers needs to be put in the Brady/Manning/Brees top QB tier. Rodgers looks every bit as impressive as those guys and might have more natural ability. He has an absolute gun of an arm. I think he could sling one in there better than those guys. The key difference between Rodgers and those guys is he can run the ball as well as anyone not named Vick. He becomes so dangerous with his feet. You'll never see any of those other guys take off, but the Packers can go 5 wide and Rodgers can pick up a big 3rd down with his legs all day.

No way the Jets could shutdown Rodgers like they did Manning last week and Brady this week. We'll see what happens in the next few weeks. But I think Rodgers is pretty much there. His performance on Saturday was as good of a playoff performance as you'll ever see.

Never read these comments, but I said pretty much the exact same thing in the Jets thread.

Well we did hold Rodgers and the Packers to 9 points when they came up here, and three of them were a gimme late when we had to go for it on fourth down in our territory and crapped out. What doesn't get talked about with the Packers is their defense and the D saved their bacon against the Bears that last game of the season when the offense did nothing.

Interesting quotes coming from New England:

"We trust the decision Patrick makes," Mesko told a small group of reporters, including Jeff Howe of NESN.com. "It just didn’t work out in that particular occasion. That’s why the coaches trust him to run it, and that's why they give him the green light, if he has it."

The Jets stopped Chung and four plays later scored a touchdown to go up 14-3. It was one of the turning points of the game.

"We just made a bad mistake," coach Bill Belichick said, declining to elaborate further.


http://espn.go.com/b...punt-hurts-pats

I guess Chung saw something he really liked on that play, but just couldn't catch the damn snap. Still don't think on your own side of the field in the first half is the right time to do it.

Brady and BB (as the Patriot HC) are 14-5 in the playoffs, but both really have to look at themselves in the mirror after this one...especially BB. This is three straight playoffs losses now. Two of them were at home (both seasons saw the Pats go undefeated at home in the regular season). And in two of them, the Pats were considered heavy favorites. And in all three losses, the Pats had faced their opponent during the regular season, so it wasn't like BB wasn't familiar with what he was up against.

I don't want to take a thing away from the Giants, Ravens, or Jets, but this is the third straight playoff game where he was clearly outcoached, and where the other team seemed to want it more than his own. In a way the Pats probably weren't as good as their 14-2 record suggested, because they had a lot of breaks go their way in the regular season. What's scary is the Jets really didn't execute as well as they could have, especially on offense...Sanchez had guys open that he missed.

What I really hated about the whole missed fake punt thing was the message I thought it sent to the Jets...hey, we don't think we're good enough to beat you, so even though we're only down by four points we're going to rely on gimmicks now.

One thing that's gone now from Patriotland is the magic, the mojo. They'll still likely finish with 11 or so wins next season, and Brady will put up gaudy numbers, but no one fears them anymore.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I started thinking that even MORE when they pulled that dopey gimmicky reverse to Edelmann on the series after.... to start going THAT deep into the bag of tricks was reeking of desperation in a time it was NOT called for ......

Again, from the quotes it is looking like BB didn't make that call. Chung has a green light if he sees something he likes from the Jets punt-return formation, and he fvcked up.

I thought the reverse was good play and it worked. They weren't executing with anything else they were running all day.

It was a great game and a tale of two halves.

We made a lot of uncharacteristic mistakes (Rice's fumble, Flacco/Birk hand-off, TJ and Boldin drops), and the Steelers never let up on the gas once they got the momentum.

The difference to me is the STEELERS believe they can win, we have not reached that mental space YET. We made the mental mistakes on offense that losing teams make.

Our D played great and well enough to win, our offense and the lack of production in second half gave the game away.

FYI: We renewed Cam Cameron's contract as OC for next year.

I think its hilarious how the mayors are all betting for their teams.

PITTSBURGH -- Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and his counterpart in New York, Mike Bloomberg, are wagering on the AFC Championship game between the Steelers and the New York Jets.
If the Jets win, Ravenstahl will put a Jets "fireman hat" on a Pittsburgh landmark and post a video of it on YouTube. If the Steelers win, Mr. Bloomberg will hang a Steelers "terrible towel" on a New York City landmark. - wtae.com

The Jets are doing EXACTLY want the Giants did a few years ago, being the under dog on the road beating teams and playing good football to do so. Wont be surprised if they go and win the super bowl just the way the Giants did a few years back
