Sup. Watching the Jets phone in the rest of the season, giving Miami a free pass for the week. Typical.
So here we are. Middle of the wildcard race... battling Miami/Tenn/Pitt/Ravens/Texans for a wildcard spot. 2 of those teams will be division winners. Almost hope Tenn wins as we have a tie breaker over Houston. Of course if we do not start playing better.. it won't matter. It will be Game Over... and like the Ravens of old we will be a Superbowl winner who failed to make the playoffs the next year. Schedulers did us no favors giving us back to back 1 Pm starts vs Jags and Ten on the road. The icing is closing out the season vs 3 teams that have a combined 31-8 Record. while we meekly stand at 8-5. (4-2 at home)
It has not been pretty. The Elite D, has played below their level. We have a D that can lead the league in sacks, and Pass Defense. Yet rank almost last vs the run? They started slow vs Jags & Titans. They can give up scores at the end of the games. It has not been good. It has been painful to watch that much talent play bad during major stretches of the game.
What has been worse. The run game. I think I saw it in the side of a milk carton this past week. The O line which barely can protect, can't open lanes and when they do the gain is minimal. Offense has been putrid. Trevor got mega yards last week as we abandoned the run like a red headed step child. He got yards, but not points. A few bad throw-Coughs, A few badly timed drops by the WRs.... and our newest TE & RB both coughed up the ball. We are a mess, and not even a hot one.
How do we do in the 14th game of a season..... well the last decade would indicate... AWFUL! 3-7 over the last 10 years. The three wins were on the road... one of them in 2006. Of the 7 losses 4 were on the road 3 of them at home. One of those 3 home losses was in 2011 when Tom Brady and the Pats Buzzsawed Tim Tebow. So what better way to have continuity than to have the league leading Pats come into town.
They are an easy going, honest bunch (cough-cough) Who I am sure have forgotten how they lost to OZ last year at this time, and then were brutally man handled a few weeks later as the D pounded Brady over and over again in the AFC Championship... which they almost won. Must be water under the bridge for them... They will not be looking to make a statement or embarrass us.... It is just not the Patriot way.
IF we are going to do something , the time is now. The offense needs to get it going. They need to stay on the field and sustain drives. We need better play calling. We need better run blocking. We need the D to get more turnovers. We need to play like the champions we were. Cuz like a wise man once said.... There is no tomorrow.
I am going to be glued to my set, I will be rooting for this team up and down for 60 minutes. I hope they give me 60 minutes of good play back. We have 2 of our final 3 games at home. This will not be easy. We made this mountain, now we need to climb it. As I said many times before.... GO BRONCOS!
Things are crucial, but this is again the part where I remind you to please be mindful of what you post and lets try to enjoy the game. Please watch what you say and how you say it in a post.. We may win, we may lose... but we need to keep it together while on the board. Please follow the posted COC and thank you in advance for your time.
