    False


    New England win SB with lesser talent all the freaking time.

    Yall use this talent copout too much around these parts. 11-5 in the NFL and your talking about we didn't have enough talent. Stop the madness, it's the freaking coaching for crying out loud

    People are having a very hard time understanding that Jesus in cleats was starting his 1st playoff game and looked like he was playing in his 1st playoff game. He will learn from that game.

    Agreed

    To be fair:
    Bill Belichick's record with Tom Brady as his Starter: 212-73
    Bill Belichick's record without Tom Brady as his starter: 49-50

    Now we're using the inexperienced excuse now. Lol

    Again Bill Obrien and staff should've had a better game plan.

    What game plan is going to help Watson hit an open Hopkins in the EZ from the 9 yd line. What gameplan is going to help V. Smith catch a long bomb on a well thrown ball? The best ball Watson threw all day. IMHO

    People use new England as a copout all the time. Trouble is we dont have the greatest qb and coach of all time on our team.

    Oh, and their ol is better then ours.

    LT - 7th round FA
    LG - 3rd
    C - UDFA
    RG - 4th
    RT - 5th

    Or they were coached up/schemed better, and BB isn't coaching the OL.

    We allowed 41 more sacks then new England this year and they had almost 70 more pass attempts. There's a lot more to grading offensive lines then just sack numbers but that stat is pretty telling.

    I don't think anyone's arguing we shouldn't coach them up better but I dont think Devlin is going anywhere this offseason and I know OB isn't. So we're left begging and pleading for more talent.

    Their line could all be undrafted - lt was better than ours.

    Don't pass the ball too darn much.
    The Texans ranked 8th during the season in rushing.
    They ran the ball 35 times in the 37-34 win against the Colts (33 in regular time).

    Mike Lombardi and Wade Smith were on the radio today talking about the Texans needing more talent on the OL . Who would have thought ?

    because he finally heard yalls cries of "why are we always running on 1st down?" or "Oh look a 1st down incompletion, I bet the next play is going to be a run."

    So what is your actual agenda here? You want better coaching we aren't going to get and would rather have continuity then add offensive talent.

    You want to ignore the ol in free agency and the draft? Wtf kinda plan is that?
