If they try to play everyone close, they're going to have seasons like this, where a play here or there turns several games the wrong way. You never hear Belichick saying "there's a fine line" or "we didn't make significant plays at significant times". That's because he tries to win every game by 30 and his players take on that mindset.
killer instinct is exactly right - I see way too many instances of throwing up their hands, actually smiling when a drive fails - I don't see a lot of heated passion from anyone on that offense, unless that is, if they make a first down catch, then there's a lot of that meaningful flexing going on . . .
