Ok. That's what I assumed. I think they need to provide 12 days notice in order to flex a game.

they STILL haven't figured it out man. they were STRUGGLING to get the smaller TVs set up to different games. luckily that crew of Pats fans on the center couch had the big TV already set to go with the Pats game laugh.gif

food was definitely on point though. really damn good...like most places in PDX

:hat

 

Not much to say that hasn't been mentioned already. Two quick notes though:

 

- I thought Gronk's second TD was for SURE getting called back. IMO that ball was moving too much so I was surprised to hear the catch being confirmed. This is where the NFL's new emphasis on rolling with the call on the field unless it's 100% indisputable worked in our favor. That gets called back last year.

 

- Haven't looked at it again today, but when I saw that Cutler fumble (real time and replays), I kept thinking he should've been ruled down when he was grabbed by the ankles. There was a moment there when he couldn't advance anymore and I think that's when you blow it dead. Not sure if we get type of leeway on the road. Ain't 'eem mad though, Cutler deserved it for being a doofus with whatever the **** he attempted to do there.

 

On to the yearly litmus test next week...

:hat at what DSA said about Thomas completing that 3rd and 18 for 21 yard gain. that's what I want to see!!! So glad that Thomas said he emphasized moving out of the pocket and

 

throwing on the run and said that's what BB talked about on getting better at. Dat patriot improvement week to week basis ;):lol 

 

BB might be the best at adapting injuries and filling in within the house with the vacant spot(s). The thing that eats at us, pats fans, are that we wish BB loads the team with more

 

talent like the '07 team. the sky's the limit if he does that because his coaching will figure the rest and put the players with talent in the best position(s) to succeed instead of relying

 

his coaching prowess. Am I right???

 

No ridley? No problem, promote Jonas gray who runs like a beast and appears to be as shifty as ridley if not more. gray looks stout no homo. that big guns (arms).

 

No mayo? Ok, let few guys split the responsibility and make up for it. Hightower is taking the brunt of it (communications) and seems to do good. Good thing he has the

 

experience after going thru it last yr.

No chandler? Promote Zach moore and Easley and coach 'em up :hat

Last time we faced the Broncos...

 

 

:rollin:x @ this collective sad sack of crap.

 

After Talib went out in the 1st quarter, it was Alfonzo Dennard, Kyle Arrington, Logan Ryan, rookie Jamie Collins vs. Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Julius Thomas, Wes Welker.

 

:x

 

Good God.

 

Forget getting a sack on Peyton...no one on our side even registered a QB HIT.

 

:lol:{

 

No extra motivation needed for Sunday's game.

As much as I am excited for this game upcoming up

 

Brady vs Rodgers has my attention more

 

Can't wait for Thomas to cook, I wonder what's the game plan for this Sunday,

 

I think we're gonna beat the Broncos by 2TDs (bold prediction)

extremely excited for this sunday. as DSK said...it's our annual litmus test game. where we do we stand against the class of the league. and yeah crazy to see the lineup we trotted out there in the AFC Champ game. pathetic laugh.gif

one thing to keep in mind about last year's November throw down where we won...weather was a huge factor. the Broncos came in with a run heavy plan because of the wind and Peyton's duck balls. we likely won't be that lucky again. so Bill really needs to find a way to get pressure on Peyton. i like our offense 10 times better this year versus where we were last year obviously, but a trackmeet with the Broncos isn't a fight i want to get into.

the build up to these games is almost better than the actual game laugh.gif

After that November affair, Talib also mentioned to reporters that during preparation week for the game...Bill prepped the team on Peyton checking into the run when the Pats ran certain looks on D. Bill knew Peyton would do it even if there were holes and exploits in the secondary because of how "robotic" (for lack of a better term) he is. Almost as if Peyton has to follow his own code no matter what.

 

SMH I can't find Talib's quote right now.

 

Doubt we'll see that again since Peyton is smart enough to adjust and find mismatches anywhere.

 

This is the game where Chandler Jones and Mayo's absence will most likely stick out like a sore thumb (I'm still not forgetting Tommy Kelly either :{). Would've been nice to face them at full strength with possibly #1 seed and home field throughout playoffs on the line, but that's football for you.

Damn. Off the point but was just watching top 10 plays of NFL on ESPN and kenbrell thompkins had top 10 play and he plays for the raiders :eek:lol I mean he was arguably our best WR in

 

 training camp and then proceeds to fall off the face of the earth. WHY? Guy works hard and built a rapport with Tom and TB12 has even said so. I mean, for whatever reasons, there's

 

definitely more to it than what it seems. Its amazing in this day and age that the pats/BB moreso can keep the main reasons(s) quiet and not let it leak out to the media for them to stir it up.

 

What bugs me is that BB even said that he'd look forward working with thompkins again when the opportunity presents itself again or something along those lines. Da fuq?

 

It's just that he showed promise along with Dobson last year and thompkins looked great in training camp (I know its just training camp but sometimes its preview of things to come yanno).

 

But nooo, it just hasn't translated it on the field this year and goes MIA then released and makes an appearance on top 10 plays wearing other uniform :rolleyes For all we know, he hasn't been in

 

the doghouse so this just furthers the head stratching. I want answers dammit :lol 

 

As for Dobson, it's odd how he, IMO, did more stuff to get himself in the doghouse or off the team (by mouthing off, performance not up to par, etc etc) but BB sticks his neck out for him and

 

 for what? More healthy stratches. Gotcha. ****'s not adding up.

No extra motivation needed for Sunday's game.

Just reminded how this dude got injured in the 1st quarter two AFCC's in a row mean.gif

This game was huge for us from a confidence standpoint heading into the Denver game next week.

Still not 100% confident in this group but I think it's pretty clear that's our best combo at O-line laugh.gif. Gray looked like he can fill in pretty well as big back. I posted it on the last page but our big pass catchers ATE all 5tds went to Gronk/Lafell/Wright, 26 completions on 26 targets pimp.gif Bears secondary is garbage but it was still a nice showing. Brady was on fire all his passes were on target literally smokin.gif

Defense - Revis and Browner pimp.gif

Run D was better than the Jets game but we still need to tighten up. Easley played well, Collins got absolutely roasted by Forte laugh.gif but I thought he played well also. Something that hasn't been talked about a lot is Chung. Everybody was apprehensive when we picked him up but he has been quietly playing well, I think the coaching staff has done a good job of putting him in situations for him to succeed
post #2300 of 5799
couple other things to remember from the original game

the TO bug bit us HARD and we started off in a huge hole that we overcame . i dont see that happening again this game

our defensive back core is significantly better going into this year , which im expecting to help tremendously . Browner is big and physical enough to take on Thomas , and Revis can lock up either demaryus or sanders

whats going to be CRITICAL is whether or not we can establish the run early on . it will be very difficult against the Broncos defense , but if we can i believe our offense will open the game wide open
post #2301 of 5799
Man that's what has me hyped going into this game. This is definitely the best secondary we've had in years depth, talent, and versatility wise pimp.gif

It's been interesting to see how we've played coverage wise this year. Sunday for instance seemed like one of those 1:1 matchup type games but we played a lot of zone.

Has me curious to see how they come out Sunday. Arrington was good on Welker both games last year so we'll prolly see that again. So maybe Revis/DT, Browner/JT, Welker/Arrington, Sanders/Ryan-Dennard(?), should be a good matchup pimp.gif

I also agree that establishing some semblance of a rushing attack is going to be key against a tough D

bruh , its CRITICAL

its part of the reason Brady was so well protected on Sunday . the play action had Chicago mind ****** . sunday cant come soon enough ...
post #2303 of 5799
Casillas move was similar to the Ayers trade, we get depth and it should only cost us a few spots in the draft based on how the season has played out so far

They also officially signed Alan Branch so more DT depth

Did Brady just shut down the internet?

we havent lost to an AFC team at home during the reg season in 42 games

does that mean we'd be six point dogs if the game was in denver? assuming the home team gets about 3 points just off homefield (not sure if that's generally true but thought i heard that).

We'd prob be +9 in Denver.

post #2309 of 5799

If you ask me, the Pats are getting enough respect by Vegas. Maybe even a little bit much.

 

Both rosters are very different from last year's November game. But I think they remember how those Broncos came in here and went up 24-0 before the Pats came back and won (with some fluky stuff in-between). 

 

Denver is MUCH better now and they've handled the 2nd toughest SOS pretty well thus far. Their only loss was a close game in arguably the toughest road environment in the NFL...and without Peyton getting a chance in OT.

 

In terms of injuries...they're in a great position right now. Pats have two of their best four defensive players out.

 

This game is important on many levels. Denver wins and everyone else can pretty much kiss the #1 seed and homefield adv. goodbye.
