Fire McDaniels please. I was willing to defend him for weeks because I know you want to protect the rookie, but this is just crazy. They need to let him run some play action. Let him at least run a bootleg in the red zone.

For the whole Brady run, it seemed like the Pats never beat themselves. No stupid penalties, no stupid turnovers. Let the other team beat themselves. When that happens, you can use a conservative game plan. So honestly I don’t mind kneeling to end the half, or punting on fourth and short. But that’s not the team we have now. We keep making stupid mistakes, so it’s no surprise we’ve lost so many close games.

Alex Cora is the best manager I’ve ever seen in Boston. Obviously Belichick has a better track record but Cora it’s so revolutionary and how he manages the team and his success has just been unbelievable. The very fact that he squeezed as much out of the pitching staff during the title run and during this year so far is just unbelievable. Imagine if he was managing Pedro Martinez and what he could’ve gotten out of him.

Yes, this spring, and then I *didn't* see it coming for a solid 3-4 months.

Bastards are CRUSHING it out there!

8 out of 10 drives the Cowboys moved the ball into field goal range, 4 and short gotta go for it.

Idk how many more “wow we played good enough to win and should’ve won” losses I can take. I love Brandon bolden I really do but why do we keep giving it to him in 3 and short.

Sox bullpen has blown four leads in eight games so far this postseason. Four blown saves in eight games.

Imagine how good this team would be if it could hold leads.

I've gone from thinking we were World Series bound to doubting we can force a game 7. :cry:

The Pats have acutally looked pretty good most of the season (some really close losses to some good teams), now they are starting to get the wins. This team has a legit chance of surprising people by year's end.
Mac has been by far the best rookie QB this season. Nice job of recruiting by Bill and Co.

Not sure how the Bills lost to the Jags today but thanks to them for doing it.
Pats have three teams left who they "should" beat in ATL, MIA, JAGS.
TEN, IND, CLE they "could" beat.
Then two against the Bills -- could be interesting if today's injuries aren't too bad and they can keep putting it together.
5-3 the rest of the way would get them to 10-7, which was what I was hoping heading into the season. Can't get those early disappointing losses back (MIA in particular) but we'll see!
