You know...the Giants really fooled the Patriots the year they played in the Super Bowl. They played the Patriots style game in the last regular season game. Coughlin came out and let it be known they were going to "play to win the game" and "play all the starters." But what they did was, play a prevent defense basically the entire game and not pressure Brady saving the real defensive schemes for the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

The Giants in the final season game threw the ball 32 times and only ran it 19 times. They allowed the game to be a shoot out and lulled the Pats into thinking that's what they would get again. They only got 1 sack on Tom that game. TOP was in favor for the Pats in that game 36 mins to 23 mins.

Then the super bowl...They ran it 26 times and passed 34, TOP was in their favor by about a minute, they sacked Brady 5 Times because they changed their stunts and put in a real game plan for the D-Line. The longest pass play they allowed was 19 yards, unlike the previous game where moss had a 65 yard td, the Pats could never get the ball deep because of the pressure.

I believe, Coughlin planned to show the Pats a "fake" game plan that last game. Set them up for the potential of playing them again and hoped they used the film from that first game as a guide for the SB. Might explain why the Pats looked lost at times during the SB.

That's just my opinion...I also am a little nuts so it is what it is.

The stats/trends are there for all to see. If you want to slice and dice to defend your already predetermined position, that's fine, however, over the long-term, REALITY will ultimately win out.

Belichick/Brady were at the peak of their "powers" when they were able to reap the most from their cheating. As time wears on, and distance separates them from their unfair advantages, there will be a giant leveling out. You choose to stick your head in the sand like an Ostrich and defend your awful franchise like the hopeless homer lemming you (and your buddy Gaist) are, meanwhile, the rest of us get to sit back and enjoy the imminent and inevitable unraveling of your crooked franchise right before our very eyes.

I'm sure I speak for others when I say I'm going to enjoy this VERY much...If there would have been some humility from the organization and it's fans on the way up, this fall would not have been so hard, but you did this to yourselves. More's the pity...

The defense is aging and becoming ineffective.

Brady is on par for a very average season.

It has begun.

Wouldn't it be easier to just spot the Pats 15 yards on their first possession at the beginning of each half instead of slowing down the game with the BS calls?

Nah, Brady wouldn't settle for that. They should just get a first down after second down on every drive past the 50 yard line. That way the pace of the game remains and the poor Patriots won't have to adapt to any inconvenient changes.

Anyone see the shot to the knees that Kyle Orton took at the end of regulation? No flags on the Pats for that one and it was B-L-A-T-A-N-T!
