View Full Version : Sunday's game is nothing but a formality

Let me first start by acknowledging that the 42-14 Patriots win a few weeks ago is mostly irrelevant now. Having said that, it was quite telling. That we were able to destroy you guys while playing a mediocre (AT BEST) game speaks volumes. With the exception of that fabulous 63 yard pass to Donate Stallworth, it was one of Brady's weaker performances of the season. There were several missed passes (to Lloyd) that would have resulted in 6. We fumbled the ball a couple of times (not surprisingly, the Texans failed to recover) and our defense had some gaping holes. In short, we were not at our best. Add to that the fact that Gronkowski wasn't in our lineup, and the blowout becomes even more comical. Expect a much better effort from the Pats with something actually on the line.

Gronkowski will prove to be a matchup nightmare for you guys. He is 6'6 265 lbs of pure strength. He is a superb blocker, and easily the best receiving TE in the league.

Additionally, I see the Texans doing their usual routine and trying to attack us with Foster. Guys like Wilfork, Jones, Ninkovich, Spikes, have been amazing against the run this year. Going with the run as opposed to attacking our CB will be their downfall.

People will bring up the Jets game in 2010. There is no comparison. The Jets were far more familiar with us. The Jets played with a kind of tenacity I've never seen from the Texans. Our running attack is more balanced (we lead the league in rushing TDs) and takes pressure off of Brady, our secondary and defense in general is significantly improved, and the addition of Lloyd has at times provided a legitimate outside threat which we really lacked in 2010.

Your team is simply not built to win shootouts, which is what it will take to beat us in Foxborough.

I won't even feel the need to brag about our inevitable win. I expect another one-sided affair. Beating you guys just won't be that big of an accomplishment.

Do you live in Boston? If so, lets make a bet. I can meet you in person to discuss the terms. You seem pretty confident, how many points will you give me? 20? 30? Last time, the Patriots beat us by 28 points and you seem to believe they will be even better this time. Will you give me 40? I'd like to see if you really have the guts to stand behind the post.

Do any of us need to be worried about what's going on up there in Boston? Anytime someone mentions Gronkowski they talk about his massive arms and chest and his pure strength, and I'm not sure at this point if it's even football related.

Bull, the Patriots played like it was their Super Bowl. They've done popped their wad, as is evident by their lackluster performance vs San Fran, Jacksonville, & Miami. Yeah they won two of the three, but that's because Jacksonville & Miami gave you those games.



Additionally, I see the Texans doing their usual routine and trying to attack us with Foster. Guys like Wilfork, Jones, Ninkovich, Spikes, have been amazing against the run this year. Going with the run as opposed to attacking our CB will be their downfall.

Oh, you mean that UDFA that ran roughshod over you in 2009, knocking you out of HFA? Are y'all still mad about that? It's just a game bro, don't take it personal.

If that's what you're calling your performance against San Fran, Jacksonville, & Miami....

we'll be alright. Besides, after Brady comes back from his photo-shoot

Your QB has 1TD in the last 23 quarters. You guys had a solid grip on the #1 seed and slid all the way to #3 with laughable performances. You barely beat a mediocre team on your home field. Are you really going to claim that your team is not weaker now than they were when they were 11-1 with everyone calling them the best team in the league?

We win by a double digit score. Whether the margin will be as large as last time remains to be seen. The game will be mostly one-sided however.

We came in under prepared against the 49ers and played atrociously in the 1st half. I will give you that. The difference is, unlike the Texans, we didn't give up and allow ourselves to be humiliated. We came back from 31-3 to lose by only 7, after adjustments at halftime.

We played poorly against the Jags. But we tend to do that against poor teams when nothing is on the line.

Miami? We dominated the entire game and our D got a shutout.

What I think will happen isn't the issue thats on the line here. You came in guns blazing saying that:
1) The Patriots offense left points on the field.
2) That the Patriots defense had 'gaping holes' in it and should have prevented more points from being scored.
3) That the Texans are an even worse team now than they were before
4) That Gronk is back making the Pats an even better team than they were before

When we played in December, the game wasn't a 'formality.' If it is now, you must be confident that they will beat the Texans by more than 28 points. If you really believe yourself, prove it. I just want to hear your score prediction. 50 - 10? 60 - 3?

I didn't say we would win by an even larger margin. Predicting scores is a fool's game in which I do not partake. There are numerous (random) variables that affect the final outcome. We could out gain you in offensive yardage 600-250, or we could have 10 red zone trips to your 1, and still only win by 3. My prediction is that it will be one-sided game. The only way we lose if that is the case is if we make glaring mistakes. But we rarely do that. We have a turnover differential of +25 or some crazy number like that.

You mean the Baltimore that should have beat us last year if not for a lousy kick and dropped pass?

I disagree with you, bud. I am not afraid of any team. However, any of the eight remaining has the tools and the talent to beat NE. There are no layups left, if the Pats win this weekend, they'll have earned it. If they advance beyond that, they'll have earned that as well. It would not surprise me if JJ Watt channeled his inner LT and dominated Sunday. Nor would it surprise me if the Pats smoked 'em again, although I don't think they will. I expect a tougher game, but I am confident in the team to pull out a W.

Beyond that, Peyton Manning likely looms for the AFC championship. that's a mighty big mountain to climb, no pun intended. Then they'll either have to beat a great QB (Rogers), a talented group of receivers (Atlanta), a hard hitting D that already beat 'em (SF), or a pumped and jacked attacking D with a strong running game (Seattle).

No layups left.

I was referring to the AFC.

On the NFC side, we match up well against GB and Atl. I am more concerned about Seattle, and to a lesser extent, the 49ers. We came into the 9ers game under prepared but completely dominated them in the second half after making adjustments. Plus, we would be playing in a dome under perfect conditions.

Hmmm I dunno, we barely lost to them at their house last year. If we weren't running our 3rd string QB and had a retard giving them a free TD (Jacoby) we might've advanced to lose to NE the next week. But thanks for your professional input on how terrible my team is.

Let me first start by acknowledging that the 42-14 Patriots win a few weeks ago is mostly irrelevant now. Having said that, it was quite telling. That we were able to destroy you guys while playing a mediocre (AT BEST) game speaks volumes. With the exception of that fabulous 63 yard pass to Donate Stallworth, it was one of Brady's weaker performances of the season. There were several missed passes (to Lloyd) that would have resulted in 6. We fumbled the ball a couple of times (not surprisingly, the Texans failed to recover) and our defense had some gaping holes. In short, we were not at our best. Add to that the fact that Gronkowski wasn't in our lineup, and the blowout becomes even more comical. Expect a much better effort from the Pats with something actually on the line.

Gronkowski will prove to be a matchup nightmare for you guys. He is 6'6 265 lbs of pure strength. He is a superb blocker, and easily the best receiving TE in the league.

Additionally, I see the Texans doing their usual routine and trying to attack us with Foster. Guys like Wilfork, Jones, Ninkovich, Spikes, have been amazing against the run this year. Going with the run as opposed to attacking our CB will be their downfall.

People will bring up the Jets game in 2010. There is no comparison. The Jets were far more familiar with us. The Jets played with a kind of tenacity I've never seen from the Texans. Our running attack is more balanced (we lead the league in rushing TDs) and takes pressure off of Brady, our secondary and defense in general is significantly improved, and the addition of Lloyd has at times provided a legitimate outside threat which we really lacked in 2010.

Your team is simply not built to win shootouts, which is what it will take to beat us in Foxborough.

Man, the crying and anxiety coming from Chowdatown would be priceless if the Pats lose on Sunday.

I'd like to come down here an talk smack, but I really look at this as any of the four AFC teams can win out and advance to the Super Bowl. The only reason there'd be cryin' out of my house at least is if the Pats don't show up and get the snot beat out of 'em. That ain't gonna happen. This isn't the 09-10 Pats.

And BTW, I'm not a Texan fan.

Not the first time I have heard the Pats compared to the Yankees. I'll take that. Even though I hate those pinstriped pricks with every fiber of my body, I respect them, because they know how to win. It's ingrained in the organization. So even though it pains me to say it...thanks for the compliment.

It's like you guys forgot that while you have had success, you have sprinkled in a decade or two here and there of straight suckage. Those that forget history are destined to repeat it. Probably mostly bandwagoners....

And while your at it change the damn name of your team, or at least pick a state. Or shall we call you the Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut Patriots? :boogereater:

We came in under prepared against the 49ers and played atrociously in the 1st half. I will give you that.

Hey, whatever you have to tell yourself pal.

The difference is, unlike the Texans, we didn't give up and allow ourselves to be humiliated. We came back from 31-3 to lose by only 7, after adjustments at halftime.

This isn't the BCS.... actually, not even the BCS gives a sh1t about your "almost" come back.

We played poorly against the Jags. But we tend to do that against poor teams when nothing is on the line.

Again, as long as you sleep well at night, it doesn't really matter. You tell yourself whatever you need to, to convince yourself your team didn't peak in the regular season.

Playing your Super Bowl against the Texans in week 14. Blowing your wad & stumbling into the play-offs weak-kneed.

It's ok.

Miami? We dominated the entire game and our D got a shutout.

Gotcha... you "dominated" a bad Miami team, so you're "ready" for the Super Bowl... too bad Miami isn't between you & a Super Bowl.

Look, you peaked prematurely. We've had that affect on a lot of teams this season. It happens. It's nothing to be ashamed of, you're still a "great" regular season team. Some teams can't even say that.

Just remember y'all used to be good enough to win Super Bowls, you can probably live the rest of your life bragging about those Super Bowls.. I mean it hasn't "really" been a decade & it only "feels" like it was a long time ago. Hey, you can even say you "almost" won it last year.

Next year, you won't be the only one mistakenly thinking you've got a Super Bowl team again, there are a bunch of delusional people out there who thinks Brady can do it all by himself.

You know.... I understand with success, you should expect more.

But some of this is silly. Some of the way we move the target I mean.

In 2009, we didn't make the play-offs, because we didn't win the game week 1 (or any of our other losses along the way), but we beat these Patriots week 17 to keep our play-off hopes alive.

In 2012, we get off to a league high 11-1 record assuring a play-off spot with 5 weeks left in the season.... Twice, we've won in the Wild Card round...

But you (a fan of this team) think they are mere speed bumps because they haven't proven otherwise in a "big game"

I never tried or wanted to be President that's why . I never tried to be a billionaire . I am the lead guy in what I do at a national company .

In sports I was always on winning teams from Little League until I stopped in 1998 . The one thing I know for sure is it's not what you do vs the bad teams in meaningless games that count . It's what you do vs the best teams in big games that define you .

The Texans used to surge after they were all but eliminated from the playoffs to finish 8-8 . Now they get into the drivers seat and spit the bit . Why ... they don't have the guy pulling the trigger who has big play ability and they don't have the person leading the group who can get it done . Until proven otherwise our Texans are the not ready for primetime players or speed bumps for the contenders .

First, we're in the "rivalry" section, so it's kind of a crappy place to make the post that started this anyway.

Secondly, I'd throw the Bears in that to bring us to .500 in those games. Four of the teams you mentioned are still in the tournament, and once you narrow it down to those 4, we're still 2-2.

I'm not predicting a win on Sunday, nor do I have any expectations other than I'm gonna enjoy the ride, be rooting like hell for them on Sunday, and be big enough to deal with the results of the game whatever they may be.

I hear ya. But like I said, we're more than a speed bump. We're learning the recipe & if we beat New England, I like our chances against Manning & the Ravens.

Our record against elite teams leaves a lot lacking. As far as losing to Minnesota & Indy.... it's not like you didn't know we weren't playing very well.

But I think we've been playing better & better ever since. We played better against Minnesota than we did against New England (that's the game we got Newton back, I think), Second Indy game, we played better than we did against Minnesota (didn't win, but played better, played Houston Texans football).

Against Cincinnati, we looked really good on both offense & defense. We didn't score TDs, I get it. But the improvement from the week before was night & day. I have no doubt in my mind, that our guys aren't just sitting around hoping they play better.

Defensively, I wasn't expecting it, but the guys in the secondary really stepped up their game. 6 passes defensed. Maybe not a record or anything, but I can't remember the last time the Texans got 6 passes defensed in one game.

& Jjo looked good. I mean he looked like the guy that turned it around for us last year, before Watt was Watt. Now he's got Mega Watt playing in front of him....... oooooooo weeeeee I'm excited.

I'm really optimistic about this game coming up (if you can't tell). You may not be, but that's ok. But I feel, what you're looking for, you're about to see.

I'll take Seattle over Atlanta. I never bought into the Atlanta thing this year. I don't know if Vegas has it that way, but I see Seattle as the favorite, even on the road.

We're the underdog, going to New England... I would bet the Seahawks would be underdogs going into New England & Denver.

We'd probably be dawgs going into Atlanta.

We had the most dominant OL in the league last year. We lost Dressen, Briesel & Winston.

We knew we were going to struggle running the ball, especially to the right side & somewhat to the left since the backside play is very important in our ZBS.

However, just as we were getting it figured out, what happened? What happened that we weren't able to overcome?

We lost both Newton & Graham for multiple games. & for some reason we stepped up Brandon Brooks' snaps around the same time.

With Newton & Graham back in the line up, we are looking like that team they thought was the best in the league. Newton came back against Minnesota & our running game has gotten better & better ever since.

We're going to kick New England's a55, because of Derek Newton.

Let me first start by acknowledging that the 42-14 Patriots win a few weeks ago is mostly irrelevant now. Having said that, it was quite telling. That we were able to destroy you guys while playing a mediocre (AT BEST) game speaks volumes.

Okay.

With the exception of that fabulous 63 yard pass to Donate Stallworth, it was one of Brady's weaker performances of the season. There were several missed passes (to Lloyd) that would have resulted in 6.

:thinking: So Brady not having a 400 yard passing game had NOTHING to do with the defense he faced...he simply got up on the wrong side of the bed. Interesting logic.


We fumbled the ball a couple of times (not surprisingly, the Texans failed to recover) and our defense had some gaping holes. In short, we were not at our best. Add to that the fact that Gronkowski wasn't in our lineup, and the blowout becomes even more comical. Expect a much better effort from the Pats with something actually on the line.

:thinking: So...everytime a ball has ever been fumbled in NFL history by an offense...the defense managed to recover...with the exception of THAT game? Fascinating. Wow...watching game film of one guy and preparing for that guy...then facing someone else wouldn't have anything to do with a problem in execution. Oh well.


Gronkowski will prove to be a matchup nightmare for you guys. He is 6'6 265 lbs of pure strength. He is a superb blocker, and easily the best receiving TE in the league.

Let me preface what I'm about to say with somethign than can be affirmed by EVERY person on this board who KNOWS me. I LOATHE the Dallas Cowboys with a seething passion that shall burn like an ember long after my bones have decomposed beneath a blankets of God's sweet earth, But the BEST Tight End playing Football TODAY is Jason Garrett. Deal with it.

Additionally, I see the Texans doing their usual routine and trying to attack us with Foster. Guys like Wilfork, Jones, Ninkovich, Spikes, have been amazing against the run this year. Going with the run as opposed to attacking our CB will be their downfall.

:kitten: Amazing you can see that...in your in depth Monday Morning QB analysis...and many of the NFL's best Defensive Coordinators can not.

People will bring up the Jets game in 2010. There is no comparison. The Jets were far more familiar with us. The Jets played with a kind of tenacity I've never seen from the Texans. Our running attack is more balanced (we lead the league in rushing TDs) and takes pressure off of Brady, our secondary and defense in general is significantly improved, and the addition of Lloyd has at times provided a legitimate outside threat which we really lacked in 2010.

Funny...many thought the Jets got LUCKY and the Pats were simply cocky.


Your team is simply not built to win shootouts, which is what it will take to beat us in Foxborough.

I won't even feel the need to brag about our inevitable win. I expect another one-sided affair. Beating you guys just won't be that big of an accomplishment.


Basically...you're saying the Pats are going to win...and how. Last time I saw a guy look another guy in the eye and say: "See my right foot? It's going to kick you in the right side of your face...and there isn't one thing you can do about it." was in the movie "Billy Jack". How about this bruh. Let my team show up to Foxborough and let them play your team without the referees making mysterious pass interference calls or calling holding when it doesn't occur. Let the smoke clear and let the winner advance to the AFC Championship game.

When my wife has a beer thrown at her (2003) because of her Jays hat, then security laughs at us while she is rinsing her hair, I tend to not forget.

You get lumped in because that's usually how it works. Bad apples ruin it for the rest of the fanbase. Not saying its right.

I have been to Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Jets, Bills and Dolphins games as an opposing fan, and none of them hold a candle to the viciousness we experienced in Boston. Well maybe buffalo. That's my fault for going there for opening week the year after the music city miracle. But seeing as how I was at the 35-3 game, I felt we were even.

Let me preface what I'm about to say with somethign than can be affirmed by EVERY person on this board who KNOWS me. I LOATHE the Dallas Cowboys with a seething passion that shall burn like an ember long after my bones have decomposed beneath a blankets of God's sweet earth, But the BEST Tight End playing Football TODAY is Jason Garrett. Deal with it.


Dude. whoa, dude. Garrett Graham? 263 yards receiving with 3 TD's? That guy? He's not even #1 on your team. You gotta be pulling my leg.

1. Gronk
2. Jimmy Graham
3. Antonio Gates
4. Vernon Davis
5. AH

That's just off the top of my head. No Finley, Whitten, or Gonzalez even. I am gonna assume 1.) you're tailgating already or 2.) you're fooling around.

I think he meant Jason Witten. I would put Witten 3rd over Hernandez, Vernon Davis, and Antonio Gates.

I've been a season ticket holder for 18 years. Now I grant you I have seen some lousy behavior, but I have never seen anything like your speaking, not that it didn't happen. I've seen it get ugly with opposing fans, but it's reciprocal. Every game I have been to have been a "live and let live" when it comes to opposing fans. If you act like an A-hole, you get treated like one. If your cool, we can have fun and enjoy some good natured ribbing.

I would also guess that if you ranked us as a group of the whole NFL, we're likely behind Oakland, Philly, NYJ, and Buffalo. I think it's an east coast thing, save for Oakland. I'll also say that "any given Sunday", you'll find lousy fans in any NFL stadium.

as far as the visiting fans go, The Jets are the worst, but I digress.

Well ... fan is short for fanatic and probably the longer the tradition or success , the more zeal . The Texans are knew with just two starting QBs in their history . Our all time team would suck compared to the Packers , Steelers , Raiders , and such .

Having said that , I can only pull for the home team or nobody because I can't be a team hopper . :shades:

Some facts about Gronkowski:

-holds the all-time single season record for TDs by a TE with 17
-is the only TE in NFL history to lead the league in rec TDs
-has most consecutive 10+ TD seasons by a TE (3)
-holds the single season record for rec yards by a TE
-most offensive TDs in the first 3 seasons
-over the last 3 seasons (which have been the first 3 of his career) he leads the entire league in rec TDs, despite having missed almost half of this season
-is a superb blocker

Anyone who claims that he is not the single best TE in the league today simply dislikes facts. There is no room for debate.

It's not really the fans, Steve.

Most of the Patriot fans I have dealt with have been more like you than the other 2 losers posting like we shouldn't even play the game.

It's really more about the media that has completely ignored the Texans for years and is always slobbering all over Brady and Bilechickens jock.

But I understand the treatment. We have done nothing yet. And the Patriots are perennial contenders.

If I lived in a sh!t state like Texas and cheered for a complete fraud of a team, I'd be equally as bitter and envious of those whose team has achieved a tremendous amount of success.

This game is nothing but a warm-up for when the real postseason for us begins, which is next week.

Is that what Texans consider to be "hot chicks?" We have vastly different standards over here.

You must not be aware of the Texas economy. Granted, all that secession talk was just mumbo jumbo, but the United States could not afford to lose Texas if it were legit.
Our business friendly environment helps our economy tremendously.

Your ignorance is staggering, on top of your compete and total *********gery.

The state of Texas only receives $0.91 in Federal funds for every $1.00 the state contributes to the Fed.
We are a net tax PAYER, not TAKER.
Additionally, we are a state with ZERO state income tax, and the state of Texas currently had a two year SURPLUS of 8.8 BILLION DOLLARS.

Keep enjoying your welfare state. I'll keep mine, thanks for playing little boy.
