    Patriot secondary is terrible.

    Patriots had the 2nd worst pass defense (yards) in the entire history of
    the NFL. And they faced a cupcake schedule with opposing QBs like Henne
    (416 yards), Rivers (378 yards), Fitzpatrick (369 yards), Campbell (344
    yards), Romo (317 yards), Big Ben (365 yards), Vince Young (400 yards),
    Orlovsky (353 yards), Grossman (252 yards), Moore (294 yards), PLAYOFF
    Flacco (320 yards with 3 TDs if Evans doesn't drop TD)...

    These QBs aren't exactly Rodgers, Brees and Peyton Manning.

    I'm sure that the new poster, Intellect, would probably disagree and come up with stats showing how they are actually a top 5 secondary. And that Edelman is it's anchor.

    they could use regular season stats to explain why our defense sucks.

    their defense is significantly improved over the regular season, just like ours.

    throw out the regular season.

    brand new ballgame.

    If Henne got 416 and Young got 400 then Eli should shred them for over 500 this time around..
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Flacco had the game won too if evans holds on to the ball! I have confidence in their ability to throw it. Gilbride just has to give us a little balance with the run and I think we can have a MONSTER day.

    it won't be gilbride giving us balance, it'll be the o-line and RBs.

    with how we've run at times this year, i would have given up on the run sooner than he has.

    Can we just skip the Broncos games because they don't count?

    1/22- Ravens- Flacco should have had 320 yards and 3 TDs if Evans doesn't drop the game winning td
    1/14- Broncos- DOESN'T COUNT- It is Tebow!
    1/1- Bills- Fitzpatrick throws over 300 yards and 2 TDs
    12/24- Dolphins- Moore throws 300 yards and 3 TDs.
