Default NE vs Den

Well, NE marched down the field and scored (a TD) in 2 minutes. This game is going to be a blowout. Sucks so bad we're not in this game, but honestly, we may have lost by 50.

I agree man, we were so beat up. I am rooting for the Broncos though (not Tebow, but the Broncos) I hope they break Brady's femur or something. And WOW his first pass is an in-completion, something that never happen last week.

I'm fine watching, I think the pats have their hands full, with their 31st ranked in D. Besides, I'm not sure we had enough healthy people to field a team this week

Bruce arians, take some notes. This is how you run an offense, and use your tight ends.

Yeah, tad of a difference though between Hernandez (45yd run), Gronk (diving TD), and David Johnson (drops 3yd passes).

Some coaches learn from others

Tim Tebow was still a high school phenomenon in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., not yet the prototypical quarterback for an offense that had begun to sweep college football, when the first phone call from Foxborough, Mass., was made to Gainesville, Fla

It was Bill Belichick, having just won his third Super Bowl early in 2005 but hoping to debrief the Florida Gators’ coach, Urban Meyer, about the spread option offense he had honed at Utah. The two did not know each other, but this kind of outreach was not unusual for Belichick, who has long made a habit of off-season tutorials with other coaches — he has talked about draft philosophy and contracts on Jimmy Johnson’s boat and spent days watching film of the running game at Navy.

But when Belichick dispatched Josh McDaniels — then his young quarterbacks coach, later his offensive coordinator and the man who drafted Tebow for the Denver Broncos in 2010 — to Florida, it was the most significant step toward creating the high-powered offense that propelled the Patriots to an undefeated regular season in 2007.

Other coaches continue to make the same mistakes (bubble screen anyone?) and refuse to change

Arians is probably watching Cops on Fox and then switching over to the Miss America Pageant on ABC at 9 tonight

Keeping this in the context of the steelers...how does the 31st ranked defense get to tebow so easy to force a first qtr fumble but we couldn't get a single sack the whole game?

hopefully Ben, Tomlin, Arians, etc are watching how it's done.

Our first 2 drives - 2 field goals.

NE - 2 td's.


Our #1 defense did not touch Tebow all game.

NE's #32 rank defense gets sack fumble first thing.

That's what happens when your quarterback is playing on one leg. Both drives were stopped because couldn't make plays he normally does when he is healthy.
