    Like I said, the standard Plympton ploy. Suck up to the mods and claim you’re just emotional blah blah, then end up back here next time, probably a Pats playoff game.

    Gronk being in there is coaching malpractice, and Belichick will give some horseshit presser with non-answers

    I mean, this outright, obnoxious trolling should be an immediate ban. Especially after a loss like that and especially considering Pats fans don't troll the Miami threads. This type of trolling wouldn't stand anywhere. It's outright, right in your face trolling.

    Yeah I wasn’t that upset by it. And I had my dolphins fan relative screaming in my ear as it happened. The Sox winning it all has mellowed me out on the NFL this year I’ve found. The Pats will win the division, get a home game in January, and then we’ll all do what we do every year and clinch our way through the playoffs that will in a best case scenario, given franchise history, end with Tom and Bill hugging on the field after an absolute fucking heart slaughtering Super Bowl that comes down to the last moments.

    They just ended up with a touchdown taking over with 8 seconds at their own 25.

    Never seen two worse plays in this entire era than Brady punting three points on the sack and, well, don’t need to spell it out.

    Flores is not the defensive coordinator. Bill is. And he lost his fastball years ago. Sad watching this defensive unit fail year in and year out. BB’s ego will never allow a real coordinator to come in and adjust to today’s game.

    Should have gone for it on 4th rather than kick a FG. Either score or hand it over on the 2 with 16 seconds and no timeouts son no time to kick a FG.

    If anyone on this board walked into a Yankees thread with a sodenesque performance after, say, knocking them out of the playoffs, it would be an instant permaban. Why have different standards just because Miami is one of the sorriest franchises out there.

    Sure but they weren't (in 15 seconds) going to throw a 60-70 yard pass, get out of bounds, then kick a fg. So taking the lead from 2 to 5 points was meaningless.

    People are fucking insane. As i've said about a million times around here, the bar is set WAY TOO FUCKING HIGH on Brady. People legitimately expect perfection, and anything less means Brady is done, he's the reason they lost, etc.

    The Pats put up 33 points, which should have been 37 if Ghost makes easy kicks. The offense is in, no way, responsible for this loss, and anybody who even believes they are literally doesn't understand the game of football. Fucking idotic. If you can't beat the Miami Dolphins when your offense gives you 37 points, you don't blame the fucking offense.

    Waahh, Brady threw an incompletion and he got sacked. He wasn't perfect. So it's ALL HIS FAULT. WAAAHHHH...

    Oh but they will when the Dolphins get shut out of or bounced in the first round of the playoffs. This guy has sealed his fate in this thread.

    If you go for it:

    A) There is a good chance you get it and end the game

    B) If you get stopped, Miami has to go 95ish yards with no timeouts and 15 seconds. There is no field goal happening in that scenario.

    I will never yield on this. You go for that every time, because Miami de facto needs a touchdown either way, only in one scenario you also have a chance to pick up the first down and win AND Miami starts at the 5 instead of the 25 if you don't.

    Good post.

    This loss is on the defense...maybe an assist from ghost. If you can't stop a fucking team 69 yards away with no timeouts and 7 seconds left, that defense is fucking garbage.

    Miami was down to 7 seconds from their own 30.

    Your scenario seem to discount the possibility of a long FG off a penalty that stops the clock or is post play.

    Except if you don't get it, Miami needs to go about 55 yards instead of 95. Then they'd have a shot at a long field goal.

    I mean, the odds of the Patriots winning in either scenario have to be like 99%. Of course, the Dolphins somehow get the miracle with help of complete stupidity on the part of the Patriots.

    The defense was pathetic all day. It looked so good against the Vikings. Damn that was a disappointing performance.
    A one legged QB and a 50 year old running back. Jesus.

    It’s all about perspective. When it’s all said and done, the pats will win the division for a 10th straight year and have as good a shot as anyone in making the Super Bowl. On the flip side, you could be a Dolphins fan....

    The chance that they pick up the first down was not worth trading for 3 meaningless points.

    Miami’s win percentage on the final kickoff was probably < 1%.

    The defense is atrocious.

    All the other criticisms flow from a gut level understanding that all elements of the team except for the defense have to be at an A level almost every play. Otherwise we’re likely to lose.

    Recognizing this, Brady can’t take that sack.

    It was an absolutely shitty post because it was based on the fallacy that people are saying it was all Brady's fault. No one is saying that. Even those of us who pointed to Brady's miscues in critical moments are pinning it on the defense.

    But, whatever fits your narrative, dude

    Yeah, Brady and the offense, despite the shit show at the end of the first half, and the missed kicks, were plenty good enough to win today. This is entirely on the defense, which is a fucking fraud again. In design, execution, and with a few exceptions, personnel.

    It wasn’t a Hail Mary situation (too long). Why was gronk out there? If a guy that , you know, plays safety was out there, he likely would have cut down the angle at around the 5 yard line .
