The problem with playing on emotion and adrenaline is that if things go awry it can backfire and spin out of control. Football is an emotional game, but the emotion has to be channelled by discipline.i mean, that CAN be a double edged sword, they could exhaust themselves with it. if the pats had a competent offense, i'd give them a shot. playoffs/play-in games tend to expose teams with giant disparities.
That Bill, what a heartless, cold, brick of a man eh?
There is a good chance the Bills are going to smoke the Pats this week.
I am not even going to be mad.
Excellent John McKay reference.I agree. We don't have any chance at the moment, but I don't think the Hamlin situation will give them wings on
their feet or crazed effort that wouldn't have been there anyway.
They'll come out of the gate fast and then it will settle down into another game where one of these things is not like the
other. I expected we'll be flat and have long stretches of offensive ineptitude, as has been the case.
They toyed with us in our first 2022 game. Cruise control all the way. This one won't be as close. They beat us casually.
If we had all of our Corners (and WRs) healthy and not suspended I might think differently, but we can't really take Diggs or anybody else
away at the moment and, if they get in trouble, Allen will just run people over. He does it every time and there isn't much anybody
can do to shut him down until his body starts breaking down more. They do a great job of spreading it around, have multiple guys that
can make plays and they use them intelligently.
I'll be mad when we lose, but I've accepted our fate. No unicorns or show ponies in 2022 and we'll rebuild what we can't do at the moment,
which is pass block, think, stop anybody on 3rd and long, call plays, execute plays, catch the ball, run routes, drag the toes inbounds,
get open, zone block, get the plays in on time, manage the clock, fool anybody, not run into the punter, punt, down the ball inside the 10, kick
extra points, kick FGs over 45 yards, kickoff into the end zone, stay out of 3rd and long, score in the red zone, protect a lead, stay healthy, and a
bunch of other things.
Somebody asked me the other day what I thought about the Pats Offensive execution and I responded that I supported the idea.
Has anyone actually seen him out of the hospital? Anyone spoken to him on TV? I have a feeling that he may NOT be as fine as they are letting on. You couldn't SEE him at the game, through the window, walking in he was all covered up, no interviews... really weird
