    I just loved watching Tom Brady and the Patriots get torn apart by the Chiefs... very fulfilling feeling..

    That is all..

    I went to bed at the half figuring the chiefs might hang around, but good grief the patriot defense must be been crap in the 4th

    Only for a few days just like everyone else. Bills play the Jets so one of them will be in first. Imagine that

    Too bad the Bills and Jets play each other so they can't both lose. Would be nice to go into week two alone in first place without having played a snap!

    I just love watching the Patriots be stupid and cheap with Chris Long, and then have Dolphins fans act like NE can do know wrong. I knew their defense would regress this year, and I knew KC had a good chance last night. KC is the better overall team, if not, it's extremely close talent wise. People really need to get off the Patriots jocks, their time is coming to an end very soon, whether people can see it or not. I knew we had a chance at the AFC East title this year, feels good to be right!

    I've never seen a Bill Belichick defense look so flustered and confused. Brady was unusually sloppy, too.

    The Patriots were uncharacteristically sloppy in the second half. No doubt they'll clean that up. They'll be in the play-offs.

    Their defense looks weak as I knew it would, despite what some believe they are not this omnipotent force that can lose all kinds of talent and be just fine. They will regress this year, and with Brady's age, will continue to regress until the dynasty completely collapses. Hopefully and very possibly with Gase (FINALLY GOT A REAL HC!!!), this division will be ours again in no time...

    I too watched that game in the hopes KC would upset the Pats... KC will be hard to beat in week 16 @ KC....KC was doing every thing they could to lose that game...All the dayum penalty's against KC...The big takeaway was the Pats Defense looking lost in the secondary and not stopping the run...KC rushing just three most of the time and still made Tom look not so terrific....Then there is the whole beating them in NE....How kewl was that!!!

    Can't wait to see the Dolphins play their first game this season...Lets get the WIN @ LA

    Great game to watch. Usually if make mistakes, fumbles etc. The Pats will crush you. But the Chiefs played solid and fast on defense. This is somethong we must do. Play fast against Amendola and Gronk. Blanket them. We need to not wait and see what Brady does but be prepared and be aggressive. We also have to play press. We have guys to stuff their receivers at the line. Im happy to know Mcdonald will be back for both Pats games. I made a prediction to my Fins buddy we will beat them twice this year. I still stand by it.

    I know.....almost turned it off after the Cheatriots scored a quick & easy 7 but I stuck with it and was happy to watch their beatdown......This despite the knob slobbing over Brady, et al by the announcers and some real questionable calls by refs......esp. the 2 "running into the kicker" calls one of which was a sure roughing call and should've gave KC the ball back.....but of course the ref calls that a 5 yarder and they have to punt anyway......you could almost see him thinking as he explained to Reid how it was not a 15 yarder..."how am I gonna make this explanation fly and keep Mr Kraft & Tom happy".

    Yup because even IF there are chinks in the armor, big IF, nobody in our crappy division can ever capitalize.

    Best part of a pats loss is watching the hoodie's press conference afterward. He looks like he's gonna cry.
    KC looks tough this year, it was good to see Alex actually take a few shots down the field.

    Ahhhhhh the wildcat game was much more blistering to NE. That game was over well before half time. We had to call of the dogs at a certain because Belichek blacked out

    Yup, once the pats almost made it 14-0 i was already tweaking with other hobby stuff in the man cave. Then the Chiefs started making a game of it, I decided to go watch on our newish 75" TV (first real football since we got it)....for the record, NBC's on screen graphics come and go in surround sound lol. But anyway, once i was in my recliner, Hunt blowing up for my FF team, Pats struggling to keep up, i was quite satisfied to sit there for the next 2 hours and enjoy it.

    Welcome back football- next week will be even sweeter when the fins play, hopefully all safe and sound.

    Brady Looked Off.
    The Pats tempo after the first TD looked a bit off.
    They didn't come out of the Halftime break with the adjustments you are used to.
    And their D looked over priced and BAD!
    (That all reminds me of Philbin's Dolphins)
    I don't want to be in that Patriots meeting room Monday morning. That's saying a lot as Monday I will be recovering from Irma...

    Still getting over having to miss out on Dolphins football the first week of the season but that game was very satisfying and will hold me over until next week.

    Tyreek Hill called the play that resulted in a 75-yard touchdown Per Florio
    I thought the corner looked to sure that hill was running an out pattern. They probably had the play stolen and Hill audibles To Smith and caught the patriots cheating
    We should use this tactic to call plays in our headsets then change with simple hand signal audibles

    Don't doubt Brady. Just don't do it.
    You should know better by now.

    Atlanta provided the blue print no??

    But they took the pedal off the run game and didn't wind the clock down

    Or the Pats don't have time to make the comeback

    Losing Berry hurts KC big time though. He was very important last night in helping keep Gronk in check. He won't be there for them in the event of a playoff rematch unfortunately.

    So this is what Brady looks like without a top 10 defense.

    The pats were caught off guard by the wildcat in 2008 for sure, but this is much worse IMO. There was nothing fancy and unexpected about what KC did and yet the Pats' D was totally helpless.

    Seems like De ja vous. They always come out of the gate slow then Belichick has them fine tuned by week 8.

    Well they have not at all played as the Week 1 game with Buccaneers now moved to week 11. Better play it safe than sorry.

    If this is true and the league catches on, man, embarrassed will be an understatement.

    Time to revive the ol' Marino to Duper play where Marino simply has to look at Duper to signal a fly pattern.

    It is sad that anyone even mentions who is in first after one week. That is what years of losing does to people.

    Also, Pats were playing Tampa 2 coverage so the CB had the flats.
