We really deserve our reputation as a fan base sometimes.

WE WON THE FUCKING SUPER BOWL.

Do you think anyone in NE is demanding Bill Belichick 'reflect' after losing a game where his offense put up 600 yards?! Did we ever 'reflect' on JJ's strategy, or Dawkins's ability, when getting torched by Kurt Warner in 2 conference championships?

We scored one less point than NE on offense, and gave up one less point than them on defense this year. If it's a 'copycat league,' maybe everyone should be copying us.



I understand your point but I do agree with nephillymike: NE exposed a weakness in our defense. Shouldn't we try to address it?

Saying it's a "weakness" is hyperbole. It's a single game sample size. We have no idea what our defensive game plan was for that one game and if it failed miserably. What we do know is that in the majority of the 18 games leading up to the SB we didn't show this "weakness".

We played and beat the GOAT QB, in (perhaps) his greatest offensive performance....and he's had a few.

Is there a difference between weakness and mistake? I read somewhere that there were missed assignments and players were out of position. That doesn't equate to weakness to me, more of what Phits was saying. If what I read is true, it was more players screwing up in the biggest game they'd ever played in more than bad scheming or personnel weaknesses.

The D had a good, not great year. Mills would routinely bite on double moves and did in the SB ... score. A few guys missed tackles on White's TD. Gronk and Brady are probably the most dangerous tandem in the league.

We knew all year our weakest point was at CB. Obviously we should always strive to improve our personnel. Cooper fucking Kupp had a career day against us also, when the Rams put up more points than the Pats did in the SB.

I thought before the game a defensive battle would favor us, and was hoping for that. As it turns out, the most yards in SB history and a shootout favored us, not the 'GOAT' QB. Go figure.

That's why M Jenkins was the MVP for taking out Cooks devil03.gif

I hope he is okay.
