Thank YOU!! They yanked Brady but brought him back when home-field was an issue.

I think they're the most complete team in the NFC when you also factor in stability. They're dealing with some issues, not as well as we are, but they're dealing.

I think they're about to hit their stride & will be very difficult to beat in the upcoming weeks.

They've been playing pretty well lately. We'll see.

Fair enough TK but I just see the Pack "head and shoulders" above anything in the NFC... It will be interesting to see how things shake out, no?

Is that sarcasm? Their defense has looked awful. How many times did the Cowboys get behind that secondary?

I think this play-off season will probably be the best we've had in a long while. Of all the possible games & combinations, there isn't one game I can't wait to see.

Who would've predicted a GB SB win followed by 13-0? Only die hards. 1-0 every week is what does that. I think the Texans match up well with every team but Baltimore.

Ravens are the best team in the AFC, no question.

If Houston has to play them again, here's to hoping the game's at Reliant.

I don't think we match up poorly against Baltimore, I just think they have a lot of talent. They have big possession receivers and Torrey smith a burner.

Their defense is great all the way around. But I think that we could control their offense and give ourselves a chance.

Jets are talented too and I can see them getting in and upsetting some folks.

Background: I live about 15 minutes from Gillette Stadium aka the home of the Patriots. I read/listen to a lot of local sports talk, mainly because I love the other three hometown teams but, as you would expect, I hear about the Patriots a hell of a lot.

Couple points on them:

A. The media here has very little confidence in this Patriots defense (with good reason). This in itself doesn't mean much, but a lot of it is justified. They look good against who they should look good against, absolutely terrible against anyone else. Example: I was at the MNF game vs the Chiefs and I can't count how many times I asked how exactly Tyler Palko had a job as a quarterback. Yet, as you may have seen in recent weeks, they've been shredded vs Orlovsky and Grossman, legitimately. They weren't playing backups for the most part, because, well, their secondary depth is very limited. Their front 7 can put pressure on the quarterback, but they're not immune from being beat with the run, especially one of the Texan's caliber.

B. The whole "Can't bet against Bill and Tom in the playoffs" mantra is dead. They left a large part of their playoff confidence in big games in Phoenix 3 years ago.

C. Outside of snow and obvious "home cooking", Gillette provides very little home field advantage for the Patriots. The fans are soft and the stadium isn't set up to be loud. Not to mention the Pats have lost both playoff games there since 08 season.

D. On paper, their offense isn't difficult to slow down. Very rarely have I noticed both Hernandez and Gronkowski running routes on the same play, leaving either one of them and Welker to be the only concerns for coverage. (Not sure if any advanced stats support this, just my observation) Going further, once Brady has a little pressure on him, he loses his progressions past the two of them and often throws it away/at the feet of the running back. He has very little confidence in any of the other receivers on the roster. Speaking the running backs, their running game is brutal, nothing special whatsoever.

I know this is just one team we may have to go through, but as it looks now, it may be the game to get us to the SB.

Sorry for the long winded post, just felt as though it was all relevant and could be of interest.
Thanks for posting. Can't wait to see them in the AFCC.

According to that episode of A Football Life about Belichick (which was awesome, btw), they intended to start Brady in the second half for offensive rhythm out of the half. They started the backup at the end of the first half to give him a chance to run a two minute offense. That was part of the gameplan.

There was no reason to play to win for the Patriots, as playoff seeding was already in place prior to the start of the game. Winning or losing had absolutely no bearing on position in the playoffs (#3 vs. #4 spots, which is meaningless). If it was important, the Patriots would have played starters the entire game.

It's not even speculation at this point after I saw that documentary about Belichick. It was recorded during that entire season, and we just happen to be the last game they played in the regular season.

Here is a report prior to the game:

Quote:
Overview: The Patriots finally locked up the AFC East last week and may rest their starters versus Houston. The Texans on the other hand are fighting for their playoff lives. They need to win and get a lot of help

New England: Will Bill Belichick rest his starters?

The Patriots do not have much to play for this Sunday in Houston. The AFC East Crown is back where it belongs and the only thing not determines is the #3 and #4 seeds. With a victory, the Patriots will clinch the #3 seed over Cincinnati.

How important is the #3 seed?

Not a whole lot.

I say rest Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork, Ty Warren, and the rest of the nicked up starters. No need to put them in harmís way for one rung up the playoff ladder.
