The Pats have had their way with our D in the 4th quarter. On 4th and 8 from their 40, it doesn’t make sense to punt. We shouldn’t have called a bomb pass there to a player whose head does not appear to be in the game (Quarless). We should have called a shorter pass play over the middle on 3rd with the understanding that we were going for it on 4th down no matter what. That is poor planning and I don’t like allowing a powerful offense to have the chance to ride this game to a conclusion.
That pass to Branch was ridiculous. At some point, everyone needs to admit that the Pats just have things go their way more than most teams. Annoying to oppose them.
He’s just been off now for 5-6 weeks. He’s still had a sack or two here or there but he’s been handled pretty much by one o-lineman for a while now. He needs to make something happen soon.
McCarthy has coached a solid game tonight. Can’t take that away from him. But that was a critical miss right there – we needed a TD there, not a FG. We need to figure out our short yardage plays and make them more efficient period. It’s gotten to the point where the closer we get to the goal line, the less faith I have that we’ll score.
Wow – he’s looking like the halfback he was in college tonight. Big time plays from all sorts of players tonight. Mike McCarthy brought his team into this game prepared.
Great block pickup again by Johnson buying more time for Flynn there.
Really, we’ve only given up 1 defensive TD. They have a pick six from their defense and they have a 71 kickoff return to set up an easy TD.
