    Is your excuse injuries or FO not doing their job? Again, everyone deals w injuries and depth issues.

    Nick Foles went down in the first quarter with an injured shoulder. He was on the sidelines with his arm in a sling in the second quarter.

    Just occurred to me that there hasn't been a season since JJ entered the league that the Patriots haven't played for the AFC Championship.

    My. goodness.

    Thought of the Day - Win or lose, I hope we play well.

    I also hope we win.

    Nick Foles has broken left clavicle, he'll be out at least a few months.

    Which seems to be the common theme the last 5 years. He never has the better team.

    True,

    Too many blown draft picks to have depth when injuries hit. The street FA stories are great but that isn't a reliable way to build depth.

    But “11-5”

    /s

    It’s sad when the people puff their chests out like a winning record and not winning in the playoffs is the goal.

    The goal keeps changing just like OB's vision of the team.

    I was really surprised at the 11-5 record with a terrible OL and a QB coming off of an ACL. With better protection I expect the team to be better this yr even though their record may not be as good as last yrs.

    People dont want to accept this, but this is yr 2 of a 3 yr rwbuild.

    And it's gonna take a damn good team to keep the Pats out of the big dance again this year.

    Can someone tell me something regarding the Clowney trade:

    Are the salaries we are paying the 2 LBs plus the amount of salary we are paying Clowneys salary the same amount as if we kept Clowney?

    So even though we played well - mostly - I'm more disappointed with this loss than I thought I would be.

    We’re 0-4 now against SB winning coaches when we had the lead with a minute left. Watson did everything he could and I feel bad for him. It just feels like the same old season where we get close enough to win but we don’t.

    We’ll see how they do against the Chiefs and Patriots before I get my hopes up.

    They are still waiting to be picked up in Seattle.

    Realistically it would have helped to have Clowney, but if he was on the team would Mercilus have had that pick or sack? Dunno.
