It's not a good feeling to be writing these words about our team in the middle of a playoff game but... the Pats are/were almost completely unprepared for today. The OL is completely overwhelmed, the defense unable to tackle in the open field, and Brady alternately frantic (when he's running for his life from Suggs and Lewis) and lethargic. The last time Kevin Faulk was the entire focus of the offense was the last year of Pete Carroll era and, while I love the guy, that's not where we wanted to go back today. I'm old enough to recall that today has the weird vibes of the December 31 1978 home playoff wipeout against the Oilers...Update III -- Game and season over. They were dominated at every level. Time for a rethink and reboot indeed.
Time for a rethink, and a reboot.
