If it would have worked and Hines scored you would be praising him for it and saying you have the best recievers in the league bc of it.

Im really getting tired of everybody blaming El for this loss..he didnt lose this game for us. We lost it for us. We had plenty of chances to put them away but we couldnt do it. El did make a bonehead play and didnt have his best game of his career, but the other 10 guys are to blame as well.

Same here Blitz. If it would have worked everyone would have been happy. He tried (it wasn't the smartest move) it didn't work, but the game doesn't solely fall upon his shoulders for that bad move.

To all those El haters right now forget about it, did u see the coach or even any player yelling at El the answer is NO, u want to know why becasue they played yesterdays game with fun they didnt want to wear themselfs out in week 3, unlike what the pats did they worked every ounce of themselfs on that field and lost hugh keys to there teams. even with the pats winning they got the short end of the stick.oh and ben with no INT 2TD and brady with NO TD's and 1 INT.

That's a great point Jersey. I recall watching Ben laughing after the failed lateral. At least we didn't loose players or our cool during/after the game.

Another thing to remember EL had some nice catches in the Titans and Texans games. They aren't the best teams or anything, but it isn't like he has been doing horrible every week. One bad game for him. It happens.

I have to agree, its good to see players not get overly worried about getting beat in their own house by the team that put them out of last years playoffs.

Its refreshing to see them be able to relax with a laugh after a failed play - I could sense the crowd seen the funny side if it after a few minutes aswell!

Cheers

Yes it was a complete team effort on the loss. But EL made a play that went along with beating ourselves.

Two ways in this situation to lose a game

turnovers - forced errors
and bonehead mistakes that turn momentum of a game.

Like the three points lost on a holding call.



Sure EL wasn't the only one to make a mistake. But in a pivital game his error was a turning point, that IMO caused a ripple effect.

pats might have made us more one dimentional in this game, but it doesn't make a end product. IF that would be the case the pats would have lost in the AFCG. They adjusted to their mistakes and moved on.

SO this is what we must do. Nobody has a blueprint on whether it will happen or not. But we have the tools to get it done.

No matter how you slice and dice this game it could have gone either way. Both teams made mistakes. Brady was on his game. Limiting him next time is more indicative of whether we will win or not. Not our offense. As I strongly think we will correct any mistakes there.

Our line is still learning to play together on the right side. Two new bodies in there.

We are as good as the Patriots, and could be better. Early in the season, so if we continue building and correcting mistakes anything is possible. Our loss hasn't changed anything. If anything the only two things it really says is:

One -the Pats were hungrier for the win coming off a loss.

Two -mistakes were made that need to be corrected, and will be.......

Also the media get get off our nutz about the pats owning us, as in the Manning fold.

We clearly won , beat them last year, and was pretty close to winning last Sunday. A play here and there. 3 points isn't a big difference. Right now they have a edge but don't "own" us.

Only thing the media can say which is true, is they are better in the post season. BC makes that a fact. But hopefully like in Denver we will; get this ship righted. Remember Elway was looking like he was going out without a SB win, until they exploded........

Also in this era obviously the pats were the best. But it doesn't mean we can't be the best this year. We have just as good of a chance as any other top team.......... Including the pats.

George S. Patton..."I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed.".

No the loss is not entirely El's fault, I love the guy, but it was a stupid play. Pure and simple.
