i am actually recovering quite well from last night. i am now looking forward to the start of baseball season.
No no no. Its not if they stopped Eli. You have to allow some leeway for the defense. They are not going to stop every team every time. Giving up 17 points is very respectable. HOWEVER, If your boy Moss ran with some damn conviction, New England would have the parade tomorrow. Only time he ran hard was on the long ball. Short routes? No such thing. If you don't score more than 17 points in a game, you don't deserve to win. Hence, last night. 14 points by the best offense in NFL history
, was a disappointment. Nothing wrong with how the defense played. Not one bit.
And please explain how Brady blew it when the Giants got pressure up the middle all freakin game. How is that Brady's fault? He fed the OLine too much all year for such great protection? I see that as the only argument. But seriously, how in the world would it be Brady's fault. When you see four guys in your face all game, nobody should expect the quarterback to even get up from a hit, let alone stay in the game and play well. Under the circumstances, Tom Brady played very well. If you noticed, the reason why New York won all the games that they did is because of the pressure they got up the middle on every quarterback. Tony Romo? pressure all game; tough time throwing a ball. Brett Favre, pressure all game; tough time throwing a ball. Tom Brady? You guessed it, pressure all game, and a tough time getting the ball out. The New York Giants played to their strength, and won the overall battle in that category.
In fact, dont try and explain. Save us the time.
