    I can hear them now, " Sure Ryan threw 3 picks, but our OL is ****. How can you play when you don't have any time." "How did Brady do that to us. Where was the defense from the Buffalo game." If the players just did their assignments, everything would be OK." "Matt(Burke) was on point, the players didn't execute." "Why do reporters ask these stupid questions?"

    Plus 8 is too hard to pass up after missing out on plus 10 last year.

    I’m not comfortable with the narrative of Tom Brady has played in Miami during his career. Every year is different. Every team is different. Every game is different. Just because the Patriots lost last year in Miami (in spectacular fashion, I might add) doesn’t mean it’s going to happen again on Sunday, much as we all want it to happen. I’m pretty pessimistic for Sunday, but then again, I’d love to be proven wrong.

    They have the best O line in the league and it’s not even close. I’m not talking talent wise I’m talking scheme and coaching. This gives them the ability to run or pass at will and is the foundation of such a potent offence.
    Man what I’d take for Dante S to be coaching our line.

    In most years. I truly think we are going to lose out. Hate to be a downer but I don’t think we win another game.

    I actually had optimism until I heard X was out.

    Minkah covering Gordon will be interesting

    McCain on Amendola

    I agree with that. Team and player trends are interesting but mostly meaningless and short lived. Naturally these will be unusual dispersion, as opposed to every team and every player managing the same degree of success against every team in the league.

    Fans love them because mockery and praise are available both ways. The high end of the trend is praised while the losing end is ridiculed.

    Generic trends that can apply to any team are considerably more dependable and long lasting. But they are comparatively vague and not as easy to identify so nobody pays much attention.

    The Patriots problems in Miami are real.

    Were.

    Thing is, we just dont have the kind of pass rush we used to. Brady shouldnt have problems this week.
