Frank,

Sometimes I see a picture and for some reason, it just reminds me of this thread.

Poor loser! Because your dogs don't hunt, yuz are compelled to blame the ball pressures. Again the Pats are going to kick Philadelphia ash and ball pressures will have nothing to do with it. Good coaching and the best QB of all time.

No, Rob, keep putting them up. I think they underline your pain We would have liked to watch last nights game but it was too late what with a hunt wake up at 4:00 AM. My wife says there are no more late games in the schedule.

The Pats blew the game. Their kicking was amateurish. Who misses an extra point when it is launched in the shadow of the goal post; or close in field goal? The razzle-dazzle in the last minute made the Pats look like school boys. The only comfort was knowing that a lot of Massachusetts Democrats were crying in their weed.

Truly must be some soul searching up there this week.

The highlights of Brady's throws were very good... he still has got it.

That last second razzle-dazzle is just one of those things, but being *in* that position
is the problem.

Nothing is forever and the Pats are losing it. You can bet there is going to be some serious realignment of the defense in practice. There may even be some head rollings. The Boston sports press is really coming down hard on the Pats as well as they should. I would have loved to have been in the locker room after the game to hear Belicheck.

Pats or Dolphins, win or loose, that play at the final seconds was the best at that time and will go into the history books.

Brady is still good, his measurables are almost as good as last year, but he has been a little gun shy this year, probably because he knows any one bad hit could be the end. Gronk hasn't been Gronk and the rest of the team hasn't really been consistent. They are still good but something will have to change if they want to make a decent playoff run. I'm not complaining -- I feel spoiled and after 2015 anything more from the Pats is just more icing on a very large cake.

Not sure what is important. My wife and I enjoy the pro football, emphasis on Pats, but we are more into hunting and what happens in the woods. We come draggin in form the land of humping chipmunks, pour a drink and watch what happens on the Telly.

that's actually Eli Manning's biggest problem (no, I'm not saying Eli is as good as Brady)... being gunshy. His strength when younger was being able to take a hit. Now, he has a horrendous line in front of him and he has the yips. Brady has done better handling this than any other QB his age that I can remember.

Easy to remember the SB wins by the Pats but very hard to forget the Super Bowl loses to Eli and the Giants . It has to be imbedded in Brady forever .

Recent game with Miami the New England Girl Scouts were awful. Defense was a joke; its like the whole team changed. What good does it do to have the best quarterback in the league with no defense? The Pats we have enjoyed recent years are gone. Sad.
