The issue isn't going for the TD om 4th down. It's getting the TD in the initial 3 downs. BTW, if you are settling for field goals, you are not "mopping the floor" with anyone.

Schaub's sack percentage is similar to Brady's. Schaub is having no more protection problems than any other QB in the playoffs. He just won't or can't pull the trigger in the red zone. And he has zero mobility to make plays out of the pocket. We can run circles around all of the problems, but if Schaub could make more plays, the Texans would score more TDs.

Gary-ball built a 20 pt lead on several teams this year, with a little help from the defense, we put 43 on the Ravens.

We need to stop trying to be somebody else, stop "trying" to score points & just play the game. Be the best we can & let the game come to us.
I agree 100%. Matt is not Brady. We have the best chance to win if we do what we do best not try to do what NE can do.

Sure we are. Just because they don't have a glass chin doesn't mean we weren't ringing their bell.

there was another thread about eli and matt and this proved it. Matt is all about being safe not making the mistake. Eli is about going big and making the risk.

They scored 19 points. That includes getting a field goal after the defense put them in field goal range. And let's not forget, the offense gave the Bengals their only TD. In reality, the offense produced a net 9 points. Mopping the floor, ringing the bell? I can tell you what this thread needs (other than a reality check):

Looks like we only need to kick 12 to 15 FG's to beat the Pats. In order to achieve this we need to start kicking FG's on 1st,2nd, and 3rd downs once we get into range. TDs are unheard of here.
